Parental leave policies for your companies? Doing a comparison and I'll start. Slalom's: 8 weeks for primary caregiver (maternity leave) 1 week for non-primary (paternity leave)
I drink moderately but lately have noticed a lot of the other moms drink a lot more. I don’t know enough to know if it is a problem or not for them but is it typical that all the adults are drunk at kids’ birthday parties?
Just wanted to remind my fellow creatives that agencies need us more than we need them. It’s important to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to speak up, push back, ask for a raise, ask for time off or quit. The value we bring to the table is fundamental, very hard to replace and is often overlooked by us and leadership. Agencies everywhere are in overdrive mode and creatives are being overworked to keep the engine moving. Make sure you’re compensated properly for it.
Hi, I’m currently on parental leave and interested in doing some minor side huddling like case coaching or college essay editing etc. Something consultants can do well and easily. Are there known websites/ forums to offer these services and get connected to clients?
Made a project plan based on a previous merger they provided and changed the names to match the current merger. Scheduled meetings on a weekly basis. Took notes in meetings. Never spoke to client. Played video games the rest of the time. Apparently I'm the best consultant ever according the client feedback to ppmd. They also recommended me for promotion to manager for "being extremely diligent and hardworking". Why can't projects/clients like these be the ones that get multiple phases?!!

Our baby girl is now 3 mos old and has been exclusively breastfed (with the exception of the first few weeks where she got the enfamil bottles while my supply was still getting established). We now want to give her a bottle at night but she completely refused the formula bottle and puked her guts out throughout the night because of the few sips she took. What do we do now?Anyone have recommendations for alternative formulas we can try? How would you reintroduce formula to a baby like this? TIA

What ECs have you found that have best rounded out your profile? I’m struggling to find something where I can give back to the community while also displaying leadership qualities.

A goal of mine is to leave my PA firm (one of the big 4) this year. Currently in my fourth busy season. Do you think I should wait until getting promoted to senior and leave right after, or leave after this spring busy season? I am not super eager to get a senior position because with Covid and the inevitable learning curve, I don’t feel equipped to accept one. So I was thinking of applying for entry positions. Any advice?

Has anyone ever been bullied by their co workers and paras ? I work with a very cliquey staff. I picked the wrong battle and they have been paying me back with all year.

I have apologized for not staying in my own lane and gone above and beyond to help this teacher with her IEP paperwork. I’m at a loss.
