Any ideas for a good Mother’s Day gift that can be purchased online before Sunday? Stores are closed in my city except for essential grocery and pharmacy items.
For companies that will adopt more remote positions, do you think they’ll start offering candidates slightly lower salaries for the privilege of WFH full time?
It's a shame that it took me eating out 4 times a week in major cities to realize how truly excellent of a cook my mother is. Here's to you ma 🍻🍮🍝🧀
Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.
ABCD trying to bag a fob girl. Help. Doesn't like to talk because her English isn't good. I just wanna say "baby girl don't worry keep speaking your language, I'll get it translated" 😏
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
Just found out I’m pregnant but I’m on birth control and I have been for 2 years now so I have no idea how to explain this to my bf or how this even happened........
Any Moms who GAINED weight after pregnancy? I LOST weight during pregnancy (med advised) and was able to keep weight off and felt and looked great, but once I stopped breastfeeding, BOOMM! I’m now 25lb heavier than when I became pregnant. Anyone uses any SAFE hunger suppressant? I have minimal motivation and barely any self control during pandemic and having a really hard time getting a grip on this. Need some advice, TIA
I had my 10 week ultrasound yesterday and found out baby has gastroschisis . I couldn’t sleep, conflicted about what’s the best decision to make. Any moms been through this before ? I am worried :(.
3.00 UG gpa (death of a parent, caretaker of the other), 3.95 master GPA both in engineering, 730 GMAT. Have killer ECs, decent WE but not gold. I'm applying to 10 of the T15 in R1, with Cornell as my safety. Should I add more schools that are lower ranked in or just see where I land after R1? Really want to have at least 1 acceptance after R1.

My pregnant wife's blood work came back indicating 1 in 250 chance of down syndrome. With out first it was 1 in 3000. We are freaking out. Has anyone been thru this what was your experience.
Real talk. After so much self isolation, how many of you or and / or your SO are in a baby making mood? Our kids are 7 and 9 and now that's all my wife is thinking about...
Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)
Hi, How many of you were successful using "taking cara baby" (especially for newborn's sleep)? You can just say "me" or "not me" if you are busy. I am deciding if I should buy the course. Things are getting better on week 4, but it's not good and the hours between 6 and 10 pm are awful.
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
This mother is so worried about not sitting next to her 20 year old son. He is remarkably okay with it.

B4 tax person interested in learning more about internal audit. Can those who practice in this area tell me more about what you do?
I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
Firm is giving an extra bonus this year. After taxes theyll be just about the amount of interest on my law school loans (so much interest it’s disgusting). Do I immediately use all of it to pay off that interest, pay off one of the loans in full and put the rest toward interest, invest some, or other? I have about 190K total (loans are my only debt) and am of the group that’s fine paying off slower overtime for more cash flow now but w/ interest so high I’m thinking paying itwould put me ahead?!
has anyone stayed at the JW marriott or the AC hotel in miami? both got mixed reviews... trying to figure out which one to pick.

If you have 10 days PTO left, can you just serve your last 2 weeks on PTO if you give two weeks notice? Or would you have to take the PTO after your two weeks notice?
For all the recruiters that claim “20-30% bonus!,” can anyone actually confirm this is the case?
When a company moves a manager technology from boston to new york office, how much salary raise and moving expenses are reasonable?
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
How impacted are summer ‘20 internships for current students? Any cancellations or still moving forward at FAANG, F100, and MBB/B4?
I’m home alone with 2.5 year old and 5 week old while on maternity leave. Dealing with PPD and generally been very unwell. 5 week old has now slept for 7 consecutive hours at night TWICE. It’s like a light at the end of the tunnel!!!!
Was lucky to get a job shortly after being laid off. Work’s not hard but feeling burned out cause of bad process, meaningless jobs on top of the pointlessness of everything happening. How you coping?
How do I deal with a super intense senior associate that is making life difficult? This associate sees no difference between 11 AM and 11 PM, weekend or weekday. They will text me on my personal cell instead of emailing, insist on long zoom calls during which they insist on turning camera on, won’t review anything I send them unless it’s on a zoom call (yes, that is crazy and not the norm at my firm), and is not a good team player (something good? He did it! bad? You did it)! What do I do?
When the intern doesn’t get that return offer...

Section chair sent me a job offer. Before I accept, he lowers it because apparently he lacked the authority to offer me that much and had gotten overruled by someone higher up the chain. What the heck
