Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
If you are working at an agency that makes you miserable, is toxic, no pay growth in two years... would you jump ship to an agency you’re not excited about that offers way better pay? This is my sitch and this new role is a senior role (huge chance for growth) but I’m SO tired of agency life, the overwork and trying to move in house. I’ve heard from recruiters brand jobs are pretty quiet right now. Should I accept this offer?
Would love to chat with anyone at Deutsch NY for a moment. Considering a creative role there 🤘

When a recruiter says “do you have a few minutes to discuss your interview” ummmm idk how to take that! I made it to the 3rd interview and no lie, the last one was short and a lil informal and rough.

To be great at the ad game, you need to be a connoisseur of culture. The thing is, the people who've been in this industry the longest, have no idea what's going on because they've been busy as fuck.

Prior to covid I was a driven woman who was a top performer on my team. In the past 18 months I have really lost all motivation and have embraced being an average performer. I accept this because at 30, single and stagnant professionally I have come to the realization that I need to prioritize the things that I want in life and although I do want to continue to be financially successful I want a family- more. I am not sure if I should explore a flexible work arrangement
A recruiter shared a salary band of 110-120 during an initial phone screen and I said it’s within expectation but didn’t commit to a number.

How to ask a startup to share their books with you. Being courted for Manager of S&O role, but don't want to be walking into a sinking ship.
My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?
