Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Women: been so stressed you start having irregular periods? I’m not on birth control or any kind of hormonal drugs, nor am I pregnant. I’m freaking out about what I can’t see. Any stories to share?
Scratching my head to look for a meaningful gift for dad’s (father in law’s) 60th birthday. He is in India and so figuring out how can me and my husband make it special for him amidst covid. Last resort is buying something online - any suggestions here would help too! I know a lot of you might say it depends on what he likes etc..but even if you can just share your ideas...any ideas, that’ll be much appreciated! TIA!!
Anyone have recommendations on what to setup financially for a child? Most people's primary recommendation is a 529. Anyone agree or have other investments/savings plans that are better?
Husband only gets 2 weeks of paternity & I said I would want a FT nanny to help once he goes back to work. He said his parents (retired) could just stay with us & help out. 😱
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
Has anyone had their SO ask them to take a pregnancy test? Told my SO I was nauseated this morning and he totally freaked and thinks I’m pregnant. Would you take a pregnancy test if your SO asked?
PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
When you're the only girl on the team and the rest of the team votes Hooters for Friday lunch and your waitress ends up being 7 months pregnant ... Lololol 😂😂 #jokesonyouguys
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
To all the fellow single parents: How old is your kid(s) What kind of help do you have? What do you find to be most stressful?
Anybody’s mom and husband don’t get along? Lol running out of ideas to have them get along. I have a newborn and my mum is here to help with him, and she and my husband don’t get along. Love my husband, he’s great and very helpful with the baby and for me as well in terms of emotional support (postpartum has been harder on me than I thought) but he and mum don’t see eye to eye. Some points of difference- mum is super religious whereas he’s atheist etc etc

My girlfriend is pregnant and is looking for recommendations for good cotton wear during later stages of pregnancy. Any ideas?
For Baby #2, do you feel like the first six weeks were easier than with Baby #1 simply because you better understood what you were dealing with? And that the crazy no-sleep period *does* end?
From an actual parent in a FB thread!
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.
For all the talk abt how fucked us Millennials are, we are saving twice as much as baby #boomers & they could be on track to retire richer than their parents.
Pwc fish, just saw a posting for a senior sustainability associate role. Could anyone help with a referral? Probably first off, anyone in a similar role now that I could chat with? It would be in their risk and advisory group

In Tech at D. Over my past 4 projects they seem to really burn us into the ground overwork us. Is that just my bad experience? Other Big 4 have a similar issue?

Capital One Power Day had three interviews in the morning. HR calls in between to say if you have a fourth in the afternoon. They told me this depends on caser availability. Is this really true, or does something else determine the 4th case?

Can anyone speak to hedge fund prop research roles? Good exit coming from T2 consulting after undergrad? What would the growth or exit opportunities from prop research be? Are there opportunities to move into investment roles? TIA!
Is it okay to exit consulting to work at a small unknown company. They’re giving 60% compensation boost and that much money can be life changing right now but I’m worried about stagnation and brand in the future.
10 YOE (8 Corp finance / 2 consulting), M7 MBA. Don’t think consulting is for me long-term, but don’t have a clue wtf to do next. Any ideas?
On vacation but really spending 12 hours a day working on bschool apps. It's worth it but I'm bummed I can't enjoy the break with family. Anyone else with me?
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an office level PTO
I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
