D1, thanks. I hate when coworkers ask what I did for Mother’s Day — such a well-intentioned question that’s actually so insensitive.

Arrow Icon

Yep same as D1... I remember one time the cafe barista asked what I got my mum for mothers day and I got really awkward and instead of saying she passed away, I just said I said I didn't get anything...and he responded saying oh haha such a shit daughter in a joking way. oh damn that hurt.

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...

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. 😊

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.)
