I agree, I thought consulting would be paying a lot higher than industry.

What are the offers?

If you are new to this industry or work in general, I’d go for consulting. It may be harder and longer hours but you are going to find so many potential career paths and opportunities. The experience of consulting makes 1-2 years in that high stress environment worth it. The jobs I’ve gone into post consulting have been EASY! Shorter hours, no one expects you to play all roles (project management, client management, execution, etc), but at the same time I can preform at a high level because I have played all those roles during a single project.

I spent 3 years within MedTech industry prior!

Within the RA/ QA group! Consulting pays approx 10k more!

Tbh, Industry is worth the try. It’s going to be more focused in on your area.

Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?

Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become?

My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.

Hi mamas, how do you handle a sick child when you cannot take the days off? My son is 18 months, just started daycare and he’s been sick a lot. I just changed job, so I don’t have enough PTO to take, but I’m able to WFH. Husband cannot work from home or take time off since he has a big deadline at work right now. How do you handle a sick child but also get the work done? We don’t have any families live close by neither.

My son often says “this is my worst day ever” and “I should have never been born”….when I ask and make a big deal of it he says he’s “joking”. I’ve told him it’s not funny at all and that we could take medical help if needed (which goes into another argument that I think something is “wrong” with him). Is this normal? Anyone else face this issue?

Say there was a medical device that could optimize your brain to function to its fullest potential (think Limitless movie) - it’d make you ultra intelligent & peak your performance. It’s safe and offered to you free, but the catch is you have to listen to a 30 second sponsored ad in your head every hour on the hour. Would you get it?
