The youngest baby boomers are either 54 or 55. In about 5 years all of them will be out. Does feel like there would be a dramatic change in our culture at the big four/Consulting and fortune 500?
PWC Moms: how long you have to work at PWC to qualify for fully paid maternity leave? I just received an offer but found out few months pregnant. Help me out!

Deloitte moms-suggestions for baby related ways to use the well-being subsidy (NOT a jogging stroller)? I already use part of it for monthly massages...
32, 8.5wks pregnant with my first, and I found out last night that my Dad is leaving my Mom. I can’t say I’m shocked (they’ve never been happy), and I know my mom needs support. I’m struggling with how emotionally involved to get at this time and thinking about the health of the baby is stressing me out too. I’m so exhausted, and every few years they go through some big blow up like this (actually leaving is new). They know I’m pregnant, and I don’t expect them to put life on hold for me, but...
Sitting in the window seat and there's a barking dog behind me and a baby beside me. I'm surrounded, help! #mondays
How do people feel about The Mahjong Line controversy that happened in January? Just found out my kid’s school is doing a fundraiser auction and one of the items up for bid is one of their sets. Should I say something?

So her father has accepted my RFP. I'm proposing in Seattle in November. Does anyone have a scenic proposal spot they might recommend?
So I understand age discrimination in the general sense and I believe in it. However, I think something that isn’t talked about is age/gender discrimination against women in the reproductive age range. I feel like people could be looking at me and thinking: if we hire her, she might get pregnant soon. It’s so unfair and this is why we have a wage gap (or one of the reasons)! Thoughts? Any ways to get around this?
To all expecting mamas at Deloitte, I just found out about this and hole it helps someone else too. The Bright Beginnings maternity support program is a perk we get that was buried deep in DNet. I found it thanks to another post on here. If anyone else needs it,you just call 18443867354 to enroll and it takes 5 minutes. If you enroll in your first or second trimester, you get $200 Vantage Circle E gift voucher. This is the same portal that deloitte uses now for applause awards. 😊
Just had that moment where I realized two years of hard work and persistence paid off. To all my fellow incoming MBAs this fall, congratulations and enjoy it all! Future MBA 🐠, never give up.
*Financial Services forensics/AML/Sanctions/etc Consultants* what certifications (beyond CAMS and CFE) do you have/are you thinking about getting?
How much better is it to live in zone 1 & 2 in London? If I like greeneries, arts and culture, accessible to groceries and bookstores, not big on nightlife, where should I live? Late 20s relocating to London from NYC. It just seems like London is much bigger and better connected, so it isn’t as obvious in comparing neighborhoods and price point. Thanks!
Flight for ORD deplaned at IAH with a 2 hour hold. I just wanna see Lana Del Ray tonight, please weather Gods 😭😭

So I’m an idiot auditor. I am about to promote to senior -I’ve gotten 3s on every review. I have an opportunity to move from audit to deal advisory within B4. Am I equipped to handle the new role??
Women in creative leadership at my agency pride themselves on being “just one of the guys” & won’t acknowledge gender bias or promote from within unless it’s young talent they don’t consider a threat.
Is BCG worth pursuing for Cybersecurity leadership roles? How is the diversity culture? What comp to expect for coming at Dir level or higher?

To the guy at CLT who nearly caused a ten car pile up by backing up the 0.2 miles from the hourly parking ticket kiosk to the daily parking entrance - you do you, sir. You do you.
Noob question: How do capital gains tax work? If I sell my 401k/non-retirement brokerage investment (within the year of buying it) and buy another fund (not cashing anything out), would I still need to pay any sort of early withdrawal/short term taxes? Any help very much appreciated

Genuine question for highly paid fish: Are you happy with your life? What are the negative aspects that come with the high salary? I see a lot of people making $300k-500k+/yr and curious to hear some unfiltered opinions about how your life is going. I know sometimes I think it would be nice to be making bank but I imagine there are things which come with the territory that I don’t consider. (Including your salary would be helpful.)
