How long did you try to conceive before going to a fertility specialist? I’m 33 and have a child.
Hope to learn more if you bought an apt in Manhattan, or if you decided against it (renting/moving to upstate/Long Island/Jersey). My husband and I are considering to have a baby soon and are thinking of buying and living in Manhattan for the next 10 years or so (looking at property under $2M). Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
We have been quarantining pretty well except for essential grocery runs. My in laws want to meet us. They are also doing grocery runs. Is it alright ? I am 36 week pregnant and my mil is diabetic.
How common are leaves of absence in PA? I’ve never seen someone out of work longer than a couple weeks other than for parent leave, but people on fishbowl talk about it as something you can reasonably ask for.
How long after having your first baby did you get back to having intimacy with your partner. Its been 4 months and we tried few times but it still hurts. Is it nornal?
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
Holland and Knight, Tampa and Orlando. What do you all think? What are salaries (3rd year)? Parental leave only after a certain amount of time?
Favorite video game(s) when you were a child? I’ll go first: Ratchet and clank deadlock and Pokémon (from ruby red to heart gold)
What are my best options for scoring small side gigs before end of year? I deduct lots of business expenses for doing some freelance work, but we had a baby so I didn’t earn any 1099s this year.
Thinking about getting animal crossing for my kids - what’s the minimum age y’all would recommend? I get that anyone can fish or catch bugs, but will a child get frustrated when they’re not getting blue roses because they don’t know punnet squares?
Any men on here still close with their mom/family (by close I mean live near by, see them a few times a month and enjoy spending time with their parents?) just found out I’m pregnant with 2nd boy cont
Is losing a parent supposed to hurt this much? Doesn't feel natural. Depressing is not the word, it's worse. 😞
Did kick counting drive anyone else crazy?? 30 weeks and just had to eat sugar, drink a cold drink , and do jumping jacks in an attempt to get some kicks. This is going to drive me crazy but not sure if I should be concerned if baby is having a lazy day
Has anyone figured out anything creative for a baby shower in a pandemic? Is it still okay to send out cute invites for a virtual one??
I'm 20 years old. New to consulting. Been rejected by 2 Clients and I think it's because I look like a kid with a baby face. Any advice on this? Not sure what to do and feel discouraged
Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
Can someone please share their interview experience of transferring to pwc for a senior audit position from another big4? Just curious as to whethet they would ask any technical questions.
I know this has been posted before but I just need support. I’ve been back from mat leave for two months. I don’t like my job, my motivation to work is gone. I just think I hate this work. I am interviewing at other jobs but nothing is happening. I used to have so much drive to do well - even if I hated a project. Now I’m doing the minimum to just get by. I feel I need to be inspired work wise (hence, looking for a new job), but just kinda depressed and aimless.
Do MBB people complain about their pay too or are people generally satisfied with their compensation there?
So I’m the only female, aside from a rarely-present senior manager, in an audit room for a 9/30 busy season client. Over the past two weeks I’ve heard no less than five sexist comments,
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?
Thoughts on Skype vs. on-campus interview? Invited to interview with Anderson, but coming from the east coast, I’d love to save the $ & time for other interviews and (hopefully) admitted student days
Any useful advice on coping with feelings of failure? I have invested a lot of time in the past 5 years to specialise in my field (int'l arb), moved countries twice, invested more money than I currently have to requalify where I am now (UK), and still cannot get even a single interview for an associate position. I have been struggling financially for a while now (I am paid half of what a trainee earns in London), and have been feeling quite disappointed with myself. Should I give up? (Cont.)
For those who are tech consultants, do you normally wear blazers, slacks, and dress shoes on client site or do you go more casual
Unpopular opinion: I think an MBA is a waste of money for practising lawyers. Let me run before I get fishbowl stoned to death 😂😂. FYI - for those who might want to attack me for lacking an MBA. It's true, I don't have one. But actually have 2 postgraduate degrees in Law.
At home desk setup suggestions? Any products you highly suggest to make working from home comfortable and easy to use? Thoughts on standing desk, a ring light etc
Anybody have any standard ways they ask clients to share feedback via email when a project ends without making it awkward or too formal? Is this standard practice?
How does the vesting usually work at Faang companies with shares? Let’s say you get 250k in equity that vests over 4 yrs, are you entitled to 1/4 of that after a year?
I’m applying for roles as a software development manager in NYC and both tech and finance companies. I have 15 years experience in tech. Not from the US and only moved here last year. Does anyone know the ballpark salary range?
My client in a nutshell.

Not that I or someone I know is in a situation, but I was just thinking if you guys have a contingency plan in case things go south at work. Mainly with respect to sustaining immigration nightmares. Specially at experienced M/ SM level people get canned without prior notice. And now that Deloitte has asked staff to find work for 45 hours every week it's going to get more and more challenging on mid senior level as well.How are you guys preparing for the rainy day?
