Therapist helping me ground after an emotional trigger: Can you tell me something you can feel about your body right now? How about the air from the fan, or the feeling of the chair against your back *Baby gives a full soccer kick directly on my cervix* Me: I've got one
Time to join IKEA and make some babies. https://www.glassdoor.com/blog/ikea-announces-4-months-paid-parental-leave-for-all-u-s-employees/
FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
My wife and I just had our first child and as she was waiting to be vaccinated (we went for her first shot on the way home from the hospital), we told both sets of parents to wait 3 weeks before flying to come see us. Understand that’s upsetting but her parents couldn’t handle it to the point that they stopped talking to her for three weeks half way through the pregnancy and then after saying they understood, flew to her sisters place (2 hrs from us) without telling us then called after..cont’d
Question for parents (clueless non-parent here). I like to buy my nieces (ages 1 to 5) clothes for their birthday/xmas. What stores have clothes that your kids/you like?
Question, please. I started receiving the advance child tax credit last month. I’m eligible since I filed married filing jointly in 2020, but was the only one working. My wife started working again last month and with that, it’ll put us over the $150K threshold. What will be the net impact of this since I’ll have to repay I believe. Not so clear to me based on IRS guidance.
(1 of 2) Help needed... Context: Married with first baby on the way. Plan is for my spouse to stay home with our (future) kids for next few years. My income is $250-300K and keeping it that way for a while as I’ve moved off partner track for at least 2-3 years as we start our family. $120K in retirement accounts, $70K in cash, $50K in home equity, and $6K in HSA Beyond mortgage, only debt is a $25K private loan that we can pay back any time in next 5 yrs. and isn’t accruing interest.
Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.
As a Senior, what level of staffing issues do you think is the line between being a baby or there may be a staffing shortage
Please share ideas to save for kids’ education. What's a good saving amount to target? Assuming kid is 10 years to start the college. What’re the possible savings options?
Maternity/belly band - how long did you use it and is it still something you’d recommend if i have a decent pile of maternity pants already by the end of my 2nd tri?
Baby just turned 6 month and I have been back to work for a month. Current company (in house) provides no WLB and I am thinking of going back to PA. SO thinks I am out of my mind, but I really need PA flexibility. Any advice?
Just hit 6 figures before 30! 🤑 (Location: Chicago) As a child of immigrants, POC & woman, this is huge!! While they were supportive, my family didn't have corporate experience/understanding to offer guidance so there were a lot of lessons I had to learn on my own. Plenty of you make tons more but just wanted a more appropriate /anonymous place to be proud & brag since that's not really a thing to do publicly!
On the subway and there’s a dude who just stepped into the gap between the two cars to smoke a joint. New York is back baby!
Good news and bad news: We are expecting our first child in the next 2mo. Sadly, we’ve also just lost a close family member. As a result, we’ve come into a little money and would like to put maybe $10-15K aside to start a college savings for baby. Does anyone have experience with this? What’s the best way to go about it? I’m not hugely familiar with this, but want to make sure I understand the fees and taxes that may be affiliated with different options. Would be grateful for any insight!
Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
Hi all! So I made the switch to industry 8 weeks ago and took on a completely new role (I’ve got about 6.5 YOE.)I love the org and my new supervisor, however I got paired with a colleague who has made it clear she doesn’t enjoy working with me and has serious issues with my working style. She’s a very senior and experienced person so feels bad that she thinks so negatively of me already. I want to improve, but it will take some time as I’m still relatively new. (Cont)
Feeling burnt out and fed up and it’s not even busy season. Can’t quit because I need this job for money and didn’t get any offers while interviewing 😩 just venting
Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?
Has anyone interviewed at amazon ? I have an interview coming up with them. Specifically for a SecOps engineer role. How was your interview experience ? What is to be expected ?
Currently on H1-B and got selected for Manager II, Program Management role at Amazon. Any amazon folks can help me understand what the package and WL are and career growth?
I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
My friend has an interview for a senior position at deloitte next week, could anyone please share how to prepare for it?
Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?
At what point do you talk salary with a recruiter? Want to get it out of the way because if expectations aren’t in line no point in continuing discussions, but don’t want to bring it up too soon?
Any firms actively hiring candidates for public sector cloud? I have years of consulting experience serving civilian federal agencies (public trust), AWS-SAA and CSM certified. Looking for opportunities in PS cloud as a cloud consultant/solutions architect. Would love an internal referral and/or a chance to learn more about the opportunities. Can provide resume upon request. Anyone who has anything, please DM me! Thanks 🙏🏼
Desi guys look for american born desi girls or white girls for their American adventures or sought of to fulfill their American fantasies but when it comes to settling down, they go back to the age old "my parents want me to choose a girl from India" BS. Sick of it!
I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?
Hi guys, I know this has probably been asked multiple times but need a fresh wind of advice. Shall I switch from pre tax to post tax/Roth contribution for reminder of the year? Not sure what’s the benefits are of each. If I anticipate my income to go up, shall I max Roth now?
