Suggestions for November 2021 Baby Moon locations? Looking for somewhere where covid rates are low
Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!

Anyone else experience more challenges with setting boundaries for WLB when your lead is also a mother? I’ve had no issues with setting boundaries with past partners /leads (all males /dads) and have them respect it. It feels harder to ask since she understands the stress too.

Anyone here from the UK? I'm on a H1B and ain't been home in a fair while. Was hoping to get back for Christmas, given it looks like travel is opening up (at some point?)

Is it normal for a Jr Strategist to be the only Strategist on a project? I’m on a small team strapped for time/resources and 8 times out of 10 in this position, most of the time without any strategic oversight (unless I express needing help/support). I pull a lot of weight and my work gets great feedback from the Account team/clients - I can’t help but think that maybe I’m being taken advantage of by being paid a Jr salary
