Happy new year - for those of you who decided during your maternity leaves to quit (without another job lined up/to become a SAHM): when did you first notify folks at your firm, and in what order? TIA!
Hi all, Can anyone suggest good daycare facilities/nannies around midtown west? I have a 1 year old baby and we are planning to move to the city next May. Thanks!!
My husband and I are from India and currently working in USA. We have been thinking about getting pregnant this year. However, we are nervous as we don’t know the medical process over here. Do I need to look for a OBG/GYN consultation first and then try for pregnancy or try to consultant one, after getting pregnancy? Any guidance on the whole process and doc recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
Does anyone else feel pressure to make MD/Partner BEFORE kids? I have this mental deadline to make MD by 34 so I can get pregnant by 35. I’m a manager at 28 so I can do it if I continue at a fast pace
So I found out I’m pregnant and need to wean myself off lexapro. I don’t want this in my baby’s system but I’ve read you shouldn’t cold turkey off lexapro. From speaking to my doctor sounds like it’ll be a 2 week weaning process with withdrawal symptoms following. Anyone have experience stopping lexapro?
Has it happened to anyone here ? Just after baby, you and your partner, both looses interest in sex and it's not the same as it was before ??
Left my desk for a little. My kid decided to cover for my meeting. He worked the group like a champ. Nobody noticed. I guess a 6 year old can do my job 😂
I am 5 months pregnant and was put on a performance improvement plan that I don't believe is warranted. What do I do?
About to adopt a kitten. Have a nice leather couch - will this couch be promptly destroyed? Do cats typically destroy leather? Anything else I should know will get destroyed?
Writers: how much writing is too much? My current job expects me to crank out about 3,500 words/day and a great day for me is 6,000+. I'm exhausted and want to know if I'm just being a baby.
Any pregnant women that traveled on a plane during covid? If so, what trimester? I’ve traveled by plane during covid and want to know what to expect when pregnant? I imagine to still take all the same precautions.
My manager is expecting her first child and I want to get her something special for herself (we’re quite close). Any recommendations, or any mothers who can weigh in on the best things they received? TIA!
Incredibly depressed. My sister has apparently become an anti-vaxxer regarding COVID. My wife is due to have our first child in a month, and I just can't see letting an unvaccinated person be around my newborn.
The boats are back baby! 5000 more for every 1 that sinks. The red wave is coming. This is what “peaceful” looks like. Take notes Biden supporters. Happy Labor Day! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8704241/Thousands-Trump-supporters-hold-Great-American-Boat-Parade-events-Labor-Day-Weekend.html
Good morning, another day of the Orange turtle acting like a baby. Anyway, as usual make sure you post credible news with credible sources, save yourself the embarrassment. Have a good day 😅
Anyone else up for the freelance gig at RGA? Group concepting scheduled same time as thanksgiving dinner, creative review when you have to put your kid to bed and revisions needed before the last phone call to parent in hospital dying of covid? Fingers crossed!!
A good laugh before you sleep DiaperDon is trending on twitter and your big baby is having a meltdown 😢 his feelings got hurt way more than the 80 million votes.
Hi Ladies! One of the women I work with closely and consider a friend is pregnant (~4 months) and experiencing back pain from sitting in her chair. I haven’t had to deal with this, but was there something that helped you? I don’t want to break the bank because she’s a bit senior to me, but she seems a bit uncomfortable. Recs?
Any home remedies for infants having nasal congestion. Have 5 month old who is congested over 2 weeks and doctors are not prescribing anything. I can hear baby constantly inhaling air and nasal sounds. Tried steam bath, nasal aspirator.
Ah now it did.

When you fly, do you try to make friends with the person next to you? What’s your best/worst story?
I work with a manager that was put on a PIP. She’s angry. She thinks I’m the one that got her in trouble (I’m not). I wrote her and asked about a client deliverable she was responsible for and she copied the world saying it was my job. My Q is do I engage (reply-all) and set the record straight or take the high road?
Toxic workplace phrases and what they really mean: “Fast paced environment” = no time off and chaos “Need a self-starter” = no training but we still expect results “Must wear multiple hats” = understaffed and underpaid for amount of work “We’re like a family” = no raises
Which one of your projects made this bot?
For those that moved out of their parent’s place, how the heck do you get used to paying rent? I feel like I’m being robbed and have no idea how to save anything meaningful now in NYC
28 years old, have about $200K in cash and stocks, excluding 401(k). How would you allocate the $200K between cash / stocks / bonds? Crypto is the wrong answer.
Social anxiety disorder and consulting. Is it impossible to succeed in consulting with social anxiety? 3 years since I graduated and started working at D and I'm convinced I've chosen the wrong career. I don't know what my options are, I feel hopeless. Panic attacks when speaking in front of crowds, difficulty networking, etc. Has anyone gone through this?
Partners, are you happy with your life?
How bad is it if you give 2 weeks notice just a few weeks before a critical go live for a client and you’re a senior manager on one of the key delivery teams?
My boyfriend was referred to the firm and has been treated terribly by recruiters. On the phone today they literally said to him “let’s look at your resume and see if you are up to our standards.” Wtf
Got an offer from Alix vs. Slalom vs. Deloitte! Would love to hear from the culture and your perspective from the fishes working at the firm. (Focusing on culture and career growth) From interview, Alix seems to be my fav, but doesn’t mean the other two are not good.
