Binge watching Futurama and honestly can't stop crying like a baby. This show hits you right in the feels.
Had a mommy breakdown. In-laws come over every Sunday and constantly make comments during/resist my 10 month olds bedtime. Hes a sleep champ, but the deviation from his schedule by 10-15 mins makes it harder for him to fall asleep. I feel uncomfortable pushing back on my FIL when he picks up the baby and legit takes him when I say it’s bedtime. Husband apologized and is supportive but how do you recover after a frustrated/overwhelmed random mommy cry? I feel so drained and hubby is trying to ..
Who is on the Child Study team. I was told to contact them, but I am not sure what they do or who they are?
Husband wants to go get his children in another state as they currently are with their mother. They are my step children. I know this isn’t a good idea because they are safer where they are now.....
I’ve been planning to resign next week but my manager has left on premature maternity leave. The level above is on vacation. What is the best way to go about this?
How much should I pay for Childcare in NYC? Soon to be mom here- struggling to find affordable child care in downtown Manhattan.
A white/Hispanic teen has a crush on a biracial (Black/white) boy but her parents (especially the white mother) are racist. The advisor suggests keeping it platonic with the Black kid (and all Black kids) until she goes away to college for fear of what the mother might do (like call the police on him and get him killed). Do you think that was the right advice? It rubs me the wrong way... https://slate.com/human-interest/2021/01/racist-mom-dating-concerns-care-and-feeding.html
Technically I’m still on maternity leave and breastfeeding...the past two weeks I have been receiving calls discussing my plan of return to work. I was invited to a 5 hour workshop...
Been seeing so many posts on generations- i mean millennials eat avocados coz thats all they can afford, GenXers have disappointed both pessimists and optimists, Baby boomers fucked it up for everyone
What’s a good OOO for maternity leave? Did you have your assistant monitor/forward your emails? Did you refer everyone to another attorney, or just tell them to contact your assistant? Thanks!!!
Hello moms - recommendations for organic clothing brands for newborns? FTM here, found lots of good recommendations in this group already about other baby products but not much regarding onesies and babysuits.
Need to vent but, how can people be able to afford a house that can only eat 25% of their monthly income? we live in a HCOL area and the houses in a good school districts are +400K (these houses are 1 hour away from DC too). I am so scared and don’t want to be a house slave but I have a kid and I want to be able to afford the best for him
Hi Ladies! Does anyone have good recommendations for wireless headphones that aren’t Air Pods? Air Pods don’t fit or stay in my ears (I have small ears and often have to use child-sized). Thanks!
Not 12 weeks pregnant yet, but I know my work is getting affected because of the exhaustion I’m not able to give it my 100%. Should I hold off til 12 weeks to bring it up to engagement team while on busy season? Or get out now so they can get another resource?
Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.
If you recently gave birth, what gift would u want? I don't want to send anything for the baby as I'm assuming the child probably has everything it needs. I was thinking a case of wine as i feel if i had a baby i would eventually want to have a drink very soon but any ideas would help. Thanks so much!!
Looking at value manager role at a tech firm, what are realistic exits/follow-on opportunities from that type of role?
Fear of being laid off (at 50) is so all enveloping that it’s affecting my health and sleep. I have a pit in my stomach all the time. Sitting alone at home (single) knowing if I’m on the list I’ll never get hired again. And not enough savings for the next three years let alone forty. Decision makers: when you lay somebody off you are condemning them to years of unemployment.￼ fight not to do it.
Need advice—torn btwn Booth and Sloan. Already work in mgmt. consulting but looking to do either consulting or ibanking post-MBA (have only been at company for 1 year so not sponsored and may or may not return to my company). Have $60K scholarship at Booth, nothing at Sloan. However, I already went to UChicago undergrad and live in Boston so have an established network here. However, concerned about lack of soft skills/leadership development, focus on academics, nerdy culture at Sloan.
To those at other firms: Do you regard experience in Deloitte commercial consulting and experience in Deloitte GPS consulting to be materially different when the applicant is applying into a generalist (industry agnostic) consulting role?
Gave my brother a $100 delta voucher, the little things in life that can make non consultants so happy. Hopefully good karma :)
My best friend threw me a surprise (zoom) baby shower...she put SO much time & effort into coordinating everyone, making it special, coming up with games (and giving out prizes out of her own pocket). I want to send her something as a thanks, but not sure what. Any ideas? Obviously nothing like salon/spa/restaurant gift card due to COVID, which would have been what I’d give her in normal times.
Any recommendations on offer negotiations for a Senior MD role at ACN? I heard they are giving very large sign-on. Also general insight on how much realistically to expect in bonus - cash and equity will be helpful (discount 2020 as an anomaly) their total comp. structure is different from big4 but their VEIP program makes things interesting
Someone direct me to some amazing anomaly work. I want to understand the hype aside from the culture.
A family member passed away recently and there’s an out of state funeral next weekend, obviously I’d like to attend and my family wants me there but seems like a bad idea with covid spiking again...
Cannes you steal? Are ideas from a media agency considered fair game for creative agencies to assume full credit for? In this instance, Creative agency role was solely production, not concept.

Hey fish - heading to San Diego for work and will be staying back for an extra day to see the city. Recommendations on things to do and vegetarian friendly restaurants? Good/calm place for a SUP n00b?
Do any other firms pay bonuses/give rewards for people who travel a ton outside of travel stipends like per diem? We get points to a reward platform but you’d have to travel years to get anything good
Would a big 4 firm fire you/rescind job offer for having an arrest record on your background (but not convicted)?
