Wanted to share a revelation with my fellow high-stress fishies. I used to take work so seriously that I’d toil late hours into the night and miss out on valuable time living life. I almost took medical leave my health was deteriorating from stress! Now that I have a spouse in medicine, I hear about his work with pediatric cancer patients every day and it REALLY puts things into perspective. Just a reminder to show up, do good, and don’t sweat the small stuff. We aren’t that important 😉
Hey moms, Any ideas for an impromptu last minute 2-4 day trip from NYC that we can take with our 2-month old and parents? Didn’t plan anything under the assumption that he’d be too young, but he was great during our recent road trip to Philly! Desperate to get out but I’m sure everything’s booked for the Fourth of July holiday! Doesn’t even have to be anything fancy ! Just need to get out for a change of scenery! Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
Applied for an SM position at pwc and interviewers mentioned that it is for an SM position as well. But the offer came out as M. Recruiter said it is just a title and doesn’t have any implications but more I look, it does look like an downgrade. Is this common? I am currently an SM and it is in tech consulting area.
Today was my last day at the client site. According to my client, "everyone deserves a TV show exit," so he played the song "closing time" as I left the office. This should be industry standard.
Where are you shopping for clothes for return to office? Our firm’s dress code has not changed from what it was pre-COVID and I’m finding that many stores no longer carry work-appropriate attire. Help?! For reference, our official policy is business professional, but people tend to dress it down a bit to semi-business casual.

Semi-recently took a new job and underwhelmed by my partner and the agency. Worried I won't get the work I need for book. Do I jump now or wait it out? Wait it out being a few more months, not a year.
The PL on my case makes every feedback feel like a personal attack - not only towards me, but towards everyone else on the team. He is unpredictable and choleric - should I raise this topic in my...
How would you rank the AWS certs from most to least marketable? I'm a functional person looking to get more technical and already have CP and SAA.
I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!
