So my wife basically said she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. Don’t want to do anything about it. After couple kids, doesn’t feel it anymore. Also said it wasn’t anything I did and there’s no one else. I understand women’s body changes after child birth but can’t help thinking it’s gonna suck being in a sexless marriage. We’re still attractive and haven’t turned into couch potatoes…yet Happy Thanksgiving!

Resume submitted with app: Major GPA or Cumulative GPA? Context: My major GPA (aka final two years of business school courses) is 3.57 however my cumulative GPA is 3.20. Am I obligated to list both or is only listing my major GPA satisfactory? The reality is that I started undergrad at 17 and was an immature kid who goofed off his first couple of years prior to pulling it together when I started taking my major courses so I want to make sure that is clear. Note: I also have a 720 GMAT.

When is the earliest you’d suggest taking a pregnancy test? Took one and got a negative result 9 days post ovulation but have read you should wait at least 10-12 days post ovulation? If so - why do tests claim “6 days before missed period?” Tryna have a pre-busy season baby problems 😂! Thanks in advance!
Turned 30 today. Gotta say I feel fine. Slightly fatter than I’d like to be but I am ok financially, married, and have a baby on the way. Getting 5 months of paid paternity leave (Thanks Accenture!) so hopefully will be able to ride out the tail-end of ‘rona.

I need toddler sleep help. My 2.5 y/o just started climbing out of his crib at night. If we put him back in, he screams and tries to get back out. Last night after 3 hours of the scream, leave, get out of the crib thing, I gave up and let him sleep in my bed. What do I do? If I get him a big kid bed, there’s no way he’ll stay in it, but he’s not staying in the crib either. I AM SO TIRED.

I studied SCM in college but I’ve been working through tech implementations on the ptp side for about 4 years now - it’s been all indirect client work though and no supply chain. How tough is it to pivot to more process and supply chain based strategy projects - do I need to get my mba. At a smaller firm now and feel like I’d have to jump to an Accenture to actually have the ability to do that kind of work (logistics and trade optimization, planning, manufacturing)
Most top consulting firms treat their people well when leaving, and consider alumni as an asset. PwC seems to treat their outgoing staff very differently. This topic ever been discussed by leadership?
(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
