What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
I recently had a miscarriage but I didn't know I was pregnant should I tell my boyfriend I don't want him to think I'm broken so I don't know. We've been together for 3 years and he is an awesome guy but I haven't been able to have sex with him lately because I'm not ready and the doctor said to take some time... he thinks that I'm rejecting him but I don't know if I should tell him what I'm going through. Its been three weeks. And I was five weeks.

My friend just had a baby. I want to get her some meals for the next few weeks, so she doesn't have to worry about cooking. Any ideas?
Banks have been expanding parental leave policies with some offering the same amount of time to both primary and secondary parents. Do you think your company provides sufficient time off? Most importantly, would you be willing to take the full amount of time - without fearing repercussions?
Doing some benchmarking as we revisit our leave policy. Do any of your firms offer external career coaching for transitioning into / then back from parental leave? Any organizations you’d recommend or things you’ve found to be particularly helpful / successful? Thank you!

So my husband recently became a share partner at a firm, which is a bit stressful for us because (i) it’s a big transition and a lot of stress for him and (ii) they are pressuring him to move to NYC (we are based in TX where most of my family live). Anyways, we are planning to have kids, and I’m worried that if we move and have a child that I will alone, also working in biglaw and raising the child alone without help. Anyways, I was wondering other women’s thoughts, experiences and advice.
Any recommendations on family-based immigration lawyer for consultation? Had filed i-130 for mom in February of last year, which was subsequently approved and she has been documentarily qualified for months after we completed the other forms. Problem is that she has been waiting to be invited to the US consulate (in India) for months and with the current backlog it looks like it may take another 12 to 16 months before the happens. I’m pregnant and need my mom to be with me sooner. Contd.

Apple Watch owners: why do you have an Apple Watch? What are the benefits/downsides and is it worth it? From what I read, it seems mostly beneficial to track health like a Fitbit?
One thing about the Big 4, they will use and abuse you if you let him. They dont give a damn about worklife balance, your personal career wants, or your advancement. They want you to stay where they want you to be.

Hi All, I heard from one of the recruiters that its very very difficult to get interviews if you have a notice period of 3 months. Should i put my papers and then search for a job or should i search for a job while I continue to work with my current employer? Any suggestions are welcome.
I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?

Looking for base salary ranges for EY Tax Senior Manager for Cleveland OH area in the technology group. Have ~8 years of MGMT experience and ~14 years of software/engineering experience.
Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.
