My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?
Overheard. P1- I workout at home P2- I have a 35lb baby so lifting him counts right P1- you are lucky you can have kids P1- *WTF look* P2- I lost my ability to have babies couple of yrs ago *crickets*
Snoo moms, does your little one also nap in the snoo during the day? Or do they nap in a pack n play etc. Also, do you put them in the snoo once they have fallen asleep (in your arms while feeding etc) or can one put their fussy baby in the snoo for it to work its magic? FTM due in 2 weeks and playing out different scenarios in my head
Gonna get baby's heartbeat tattooed

Meeting my SO’s mother and grandma for the first time (they live across the country so we’re traveling there just for this). I want to get them a little gift, any ideas? We’re flying there so I haven’t been able to come up with anything that would fit my carryon.

I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)
Weird. 32 and only started thinking a kid might be fun to have with my boyfriend but also thinking “nahhh”. Going to be a fun 10 years figuring that one out 🤔

Do you pass the rat race onto your child? Do you feel like you have to grind to get your child the best resources, schools, etc?
Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working. Has anyone gone through the same? How did it impact you? I told my team and they’re supportive, but I’m at a loss about how this will impact me professionally.
What are your personal financial milestones? Whether it be achieving a certain annual salary or maxing out your 401k contribution annually, etc.
Best quote from the movie Office Space that can actually be used in some form on a client deck. I need something to break the monotony.
What are the legalities and tax rules on working with a client which is a foreign company? For example, I want to work with a Digital company in Asia who wants to provide their services or products to Asians in the US? How can we make that work? Thanks for your help!

Just received an internship offer for Oliver Wyman in Management Consulting. Curious, what is the culture like in the southern offices (Atlanta, Dallas ,Houston)? Also, I come from a First Gen. Low Income background and so any tips on how to prep for the experience would be appreciated (networking, hard skills, courses, attire etc). Thank you in advance for your responses!
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Can anyone explain the bonus cycle at BCG? It sounds like bonuses are given annually at the end of the year, so if you start in July do you receive a pro-rated bonus that year or do you wait until the first bonus period after completing a year of work?
how consulting firms are hiring these days:
What time is your normal Thursday night flight?
Anyone have the Accenture comp sheet? Looking at consulting Vs strategy. Evaluating the two, they’re moving my role into strategy to increase salary but I want to validate what the two bases look like.
So google dropped a bunch of roles which are remote. Are these fully remote? The reason I ask is they are also showing the office locations for these roles.
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).
When would we ever have 360° feedback for seniors and staff to rate and provide feedback to their managers? Upward feedback has been a thing in Big tech/ banking but non-existent in big 4 consulting
In Jan Im leaving to go to another Big 4 in a similar role. Once I give notice, if I'm asked to leave the same day does this mean EY is firing me? Or will they still pay for term of the notice?
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
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 taking the CFP course via College of Fin Planning? Trying to figure out last day to take the test.
