What was you dream job as a kid and what do you actually do as a career now?
Mom's in this bowl, or anyone, do you feel like the place where you work discourages or penalizes women for getting pregnant or wanting to have children? I realized recently that most if not all of the women I work with don't have kids or have expressed that they don't plan to, and I'm wondering if that's intentional.
My mother always kept me going, even in the most difficult times, everytime I spoke with her on the phone while I was deployed I left smiling and feeling the warmth that only a mother could bring, I'm here thanks to her.
Got a package of 100k in the US. Getting 20lpa in India and wife is getting 32lpa. Having a kid.
Parents are not alive. Less relatives, less friends.
Should we go to the US leaving behind 50lpa cumulative package in India?
Salaam Muslim 🐠! My friend created this scholarship to support muslim undergrad students and as a form of sadaqa jaariya for their late father. Last year it went to a student that lost their sibling to cancer. If you’re able to give any amount today that would be appreciated! Every dollar counts. 🙏 JAK

I found out I am ~ 5.5 weeks pregnant after I missed my periods and through blood tests. Few days back I had sore breasts and stomach cramping.
Although I still have cramping but the breast soreness has reduced a bit.
Should I be worried? I have ultrasound scheduled this Friday!

What are your favorite activities to increase parent engagement in your school community?
Etiquette question. Invited last minute to a family party (my in-laws) ostensibly for Father’s Day. Accepted invite. Shortly after, my sis in law advises that they will also be celebrating the HS graduation and birthday of her husbands nephew. Do we bring a cash gift for the young man? How much? We know the young man and like him but don’t typically celebrate holidays or buy gifts for him. He has two brothers who will be graduating in the future and don’t want to be inequitable to them.
What are people's thoughts on "starting over" with regard to being a bit older and having kiddos?
My partner and I met 3 yrs ago, we're 42 and 44. We both have one child from our previous relationships, his is 19 and mine is 13. We are thinking about having one together but not sure.
Benefits, drawbacks, etc. Anyone have thoughts or experiences to share?
Does anyone know any companies that allow you to place any person (like a parent) on your health insurance plan?
The only company I know for sure that offers this is TD Ameritrade.
BURNED OUT MOM! And sad to say it. 😔 I have a 2.5 years old boy and a 6 months old baby girl. The boy is becoming so so stubborn. I feel like his daddy and I are doing something wrong. He used to be way more behaving and generally a sweet boy said the daycare and neighbors. I know he is a good fella. Could this be just a phase?! It's worth mentioning both his dad and I are going through stressful times at work.
Debating when to have the first baby… would you say having a baby is totally worth it ? Worth all the struggles and sacrifices? Or should I wait an extra year just to save more money and enjoy life now without the extra sacrifices… (female 27 & want to have 2 kids)
I’m in my first trimester and I’m dealing with extreme nausea and morning sickness. Because of that I can barely get myself to work in the morning and it’s been a struggle. I don’t know if I should tell my company that I’m pregnant as my productivity has gone down. Any tips on how to manage nausea?
Would anyone be interested in participating in a research study? The only requirements are to be a school district employee and have a child in the district with special needs. Please help!!!
Weaning baby now (he is four months). I have a big freezer stash and it’s in the deep freeze so it will be good until next December. Is the better strategy to constantly give baby some breastmilk every day until I run out (like 8-10 ounces a day or something, mixed with his formula) or is it better to just give formula and save the freezer stash for if/when he gets a cold or something, and then mix it in liberally only then)?

Could someone explain the difference between a firm policy that sets a specific amount of paid vacation time for associates versus a firm policy that has unlimited vacation time? Specifically with respect to how this impacts billable requirements. Thank you!
I am contemplating a Strategy Insights & Planning AC offer from ZS in the US. Being early in my career I am placing a premium on learning, growth, and development opportunities. I basically want to be sure i’d be doing strategy consulting, building core consulting skills / business acumen, and not be doing any bs “consulting” work that isn’t really consulting (e.g. staff aug or implementing SAP). I would really appreciate insight and perspective from Zs-ers. ZS Associates

Recently found out from market research for my level in my industry that I'm VASTLY underpaid vs the market BUT employees at the same level in countries in Europe where our HQ is and where half my team live are even paid much less than me (converting to USD). So do I push for fair market compensation for US or will that make me first target for layoffs and look replaceable to higher ups than rest of my team so not worth the risk?
My advantage over others is close to clients and fluent English.
