Has anyone received an email about role impact meeting. I have heard many people has received it today and that might be the reason for salary delay.

How do you deal with travel during consulting?
I’ve got an incredibly lucrative offer from EY that told me to potentially expect 80% travel. I don’t mind the traveling part, but I studied hard in school to get a position like this and I don’t have many social networks. I was hoping to use my time after college to enjoy myself and I’m a little worried I won’t have time or the energy to get to know people
I’m interested in a healthcare consulting position at Accenture…would anyone be interested in sending me a referral?

Curious if anyone has a take on the following. My sis’s wedding is in 3 weeks in Dubai. My fam all lives in NYC and has tix to fly out Jan 7 (one week before wedding). My sis and I have covid now, future BIL had it last week, Mom and Dad tested negative y’day (but they were exposed to us couple days ago so they’re testing again tmrw). Dubai is about three weeks behind US Omicron wise. We all need to clear PCR to fly out. Question is do we fly out Jan 7 as planned or one week early? (cont)

Hong Kong Island... Happy Valley race tracks toward the bottom left, Ocean Park and Repulse Bay in the background, and a Trent XWB up close (HKG–TPE)
I just got explicit confirmation that all of my friends have been group texting for ages and they kept me off the thread because I don't have an iPhone.
These are grown-ass adults. One of them copy and pasted a message to me about a gathering where the message specifically said they would tell "green bubble people" separately.
I flipped out and am seriously considering removing myself. It is insane to me how many people make a fuss over green bubbles. Affluent white big city gays 🙄
Is it better to start from a PhD grad in life science boutique consulting or in a commercial/market access household brand name pharma role? Long term goal of being senior pharma exec
Happy Monday and Chinese New Year folks. Back to the Grand Seiko for me, what are you wearing to start the week?
New bowl called Matchmaker for people looking for a new partner (professionally) for whatever reason. Mingle. Ask for DMs. Whatever. Human resource yourself.
Is it mandatory to open a bank account with HDFC only at PwC SDC? Or can you have any other bank account?
Going to Jaco, Costa Rica this Wednesday! For anyone who’s been there, is it worth buying liquor/wine while in CR or just bring it with me in a checked bag?
Legent is tasty! This bourbon is finished in red wine and sherry casks, and blended by Suntory Master Blender Shinji Fukuyo - who has experience with truly legendary distilleries Hakushu and Yamazaki. A bourbon with noticeable fruit, caramel, and vanilla elements — and a very good bourbon for $40 at Total Wine. I’d rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
Do you use a wireless headset while making phone calls?
If so - what do you use and why?
I usually call from my phone on speaker, but thinking about getting a headset.

How do y’all keep track of schedules? I like using outlook for work and personal (including kids) because I can color code items and mark as not busy or private and I have it up on a big screen all day. However I have 4 kids and the summer schedule is packed with summer camps and activities. It is making my work calendar look very congested. I’m fine with it from my view but (cont’d)
So MIL has been watching my daughter off and on during the mornings this week because she has a cold and daycare won’t take her with her cough. Super grateful she’s here, but my MIL has been wearing new perfume or some sort of scent that has my allergies acting up and I don’t know if that is also contributing to my daughter’s cold. I’m getting to the point where my eyes are watering and I’m getting stuffed up because of the smell. My husband refuses to talk to her about it.
How do you handle handoff/transition before going on maternity leave? I will be going on maternity leave in 3 months and need to put together a transition plan so that someone can take care of my work while I am out. I want to make sure nothing falls through the crack but at the same time don’t want to train someone to do 100% of my job - that would make my role redundant if someone can just take over right? Plus the company is going through restructuring now too. How would you handle this?
I have an 8 month old who is 26 pounds and pretty long. His Huggies size 5s, which have worked well for us for a long time, have started to leak at night. We can size up to the 6 (but then only the 7 is left?!), but wanted to check with this group on diaper recommendations for bigger, longer babies (e.g., Coterie, Dyper). Thanks so much in advance!!!
Thinking of a bunk bed - preferably twin over full for 3 and 6 yo kids . What are some good options that grow with age ? Ceiling height is under 8’.
What's the best way to teach 3.5 years old to not hijack other kids toys. He is okay with sharing his toys but whenever we visit friends, he would take toys of their kids and refuse to return. It's so embarrassing
Seeking assurances that cry it out is worth it. How many nights did it take you? Hate those little cries!
Anyone working for IQVIA ?
I'm interested in a job and looking for a referral.
Curious - how old was your child when they dropped the afternoon nap? My 2.5 yo is fighting it daily now! How did you transition to quiet time?
For moms with more than 1 child: what did you do for on call care for your oldest when you went into labor with your second child? Our family is 2-3 hours away so we are trying to gather a list of closer options until family can arrive. We will ask some friends, but feel we need a longer list of options in case someone falls through or we can’t get in touch in the middle of the night.
I’m a FTM returning to work in mid-August since being on maternity leave since the end of February. I can’t wait to go back to work (I have mom guilt about daycare but that’s another story). I’m going back to my project which was was very demanding/stressful so I’m having a little anxiety about returning to that specific project. I would love any tips/advice for setting boundaries and being able to balance work with parenting. I’ve already blocked off my calendar for daycare dropoff & pickups.
Has anyone here ever gotten a liquid facelift? I’ve never gotten anything before so I’m curious whether this is too aggressive to start with. If you got one, what did it cost? How much upkeep?
Moms of fishbowl - what is the best bottle warmer and sterilizer? I’m due in February, planning to do a combination of breast milk and formula (to ensure baby gets all his nutrients one way or another). We bought the baby brezza advanced with WiFi for formula, so more focused on a warmer + sterilizer combo thatll work for breast milk (and specifically thawing breast milk too). Seems there aren’t as many options for combo products with sanitizer, so maybe I’m asking for too much. Suggestions?
How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!

I Want to give praise to every working mom.It's tough but somebody has got to do it.
Do your house cleaners use products that smell strongly? I asked mine to not use bleach which is better but man it’s all still so powerful. We open all the windows and have the kids out of the house when she is here at least…
How do you deal with your kids not seeing you during busy season? I kiss their sleeping heads when I get home, and I watch them on my nanny cam. But they don’t see me, and that makes me sad
Extreme breathlessness at the end f first trimester - is that expected - sorry first time mom here!

I found our nanny through SitterCity! Shes been with us for the last year. I pay her $13/hour, cash.
Agree with Sittercity. We also used nannylane
$30/hour for two kids in Bay Area. Plus you need to be on the books as a lawyer, pay taxes etc.
I feel you, some people turned us down because they wanted under the table
Although care.com is an option, I had much better luck with the “nanny and babysitters Facebook group” in my city and it obviously didn’t have the steep cost that a monthly subscription to care has.
We’re paying $25/hour cash in a MCOL city.
I second the above post - lots of local nanny/childcare FB groups.
I’m in Denver and going rate for a professional nanny is around $25+ an hour
