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?
Hi This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the community. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..
Returning to work and realizing that between the nearly 10 hours she is at daycare and driving to and from, I’m spending like 2-3 hours a day with my baby. Most of that is eating, taking a bath and getting ready for bed.. I’m feeling all the mom guilt for going back to work (not that we really had a choice since I’m the primary earner in our fam) on top of feeling like there is no way I’m going to succeed at work.. any advice or support on going back after your first mat leave? Im pretty down..
My kid is a med student and I'm pushing for her to spend some time in a radiology elective. Does that feel right? I think it's super useful
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.

Had a serious post partum emotions discussion with my husband yesterday and cried a ton, being honest with how I was feeling. Wasn't sure if being honest and vulnerable was going to make a big change, but this morning he was the sweetest and I'm so glad I did 😊 he changed the baby's diaper and was super positive and helpful with our 3 year old! Having coffee now and so grateful
What happens if someone is on maternity leave / maternity STD during annual raise etc.? Is it held off until they are back? Or do they get it on time?
Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?

What would it take for you to move away from excel for building business cases, financial modeling, or cost benefit analysis? What if there was an alternative product to make it faster and easier? If it had the same flexibility would you adopt?
Today I cut mold off a piece of cheese and told my husband it was fine. I've officially become my mother. 😯
Hi everyone. My father in law is going thru chemo therapy. I’ve not really had the best relationship with them but would like to support them and my husband. For my husband I try to be there for him - whatever he wants to talk about and never hold him back from his obligations. I check in with his father every week - phone or text. Visiting in person every week is hard for me … matching his medicine schedule with work schedule. I asked my husband to help me figure out how/when to see (continued)

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%
Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?
I work as a quant/associate at a large (>300 billion aum) long only mutual fund. Ive been here for about a year, but seeing how crazy the job market is, I’m wondering if I should put feelers out again. I like my coworkers and I work good hours. I get 110k as base, and got a 10k sign-on bonus. They said min bonus is 15k, but I’m not sure what the range is as I haven’t been around for a bonus cycle. This in a HCOL city. I also get 30% match in my retirement accounts. I have ~2 YOE. Thoughts?

Was about to accept an offer with a smaller brand strategy firm and got a push to interview with Deloitte for a partnerships lead position that really matches my profile…but love the culture of the smaller firm. Go for big brand name and bigger check, or growth and connection at smaller firm with exciting work?? Obviously just in first round with Deloitte—but 25yrs old, so trying my best to think ahead and make smart moves!
Growing up, gay 🐠, how many of you had a male role model? (father, uncle, male close relative, etc., that was present enough in your life to be a positively influential role model)? I had none, and was curious about others.
