I visited a friends that has a 1 year old baby. She asked me if I wanted to get a dog, and then asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. She said it was a good way to start carrying for something else and get experience for the future. I think this is hillarious I don’t see how a dog or a plant will fulfill my life. 😂
Anyone has any contacts in sursee or Zurich? My mother was on a guided tour and has fallen sick. The tour went ahead without her and now she is in hospital alone . Any contact will be appreciated
Do you lose maternity benefits if you make partner? I’m up for partnership this year and my firm doesn’t know I’m trying to get pregnant. I’ve heard people say in the past they lost all of their accrued vacation when they became partners because they are no longer employees. Do partners get paid maternity leave where you are? Would I be entitled to FMLA protection? I’m our breadwinner so losing 24 weeks of paid leave (mat+accrued vacation) would be a big hit.
4 years ago I made a crowdsourced spreadsheet for agency parental leave benefits. The hardest data to source was what the tenure requirement was to receive benefits (i.e. you have to be at your company for a year to qualify) Yet, the tenure requirement seems to be one of the biggest things holding women back. I posted a thing on LinkedIn today about it and would love everyone’s support and/ or thoughts on the topic.
I have a friend who lives a couple thousand miles of me who just had a baby, emergency c-section a couple weeks ago. Putting together a small care package to send to them, and I want to make sure it is mostly items for her and her husband. Any suggestions on things you wished people had done/gotten for YOU or your partner after having a baby instead of just more baby stuff?
Help!? Have 100k in cash (had been <stupidly> conservative about investing while paying loans). 90k addl. coming in to invest on annual basis going forward (what’s left of base + bonus after taxes, maxing 401k, and all expenses), which mostly comes in end of year bonus (55-60k post tax) and rest monthly (3kish a month). Only big goals are buying house (~$1.25M ballpark) in ~3yrs, contribute to 529 (plan for 1 kid) and maximize long term net worth potential. How would you approach it all?
I don't have time to make purees at home. I buy from store all the time. I make sure it's organic and natural preservatives. I feel guilty that I don't give my six months old baby home made food ☹️
Anyone have a swimsuit recommendation that they love for post-baby bodies? I’m totally willing to wear a bikini if it’s the right fit but interested in a great one piece too.

YOE ~8 Skill set : . Net full stack + Angular + Azure Thanks
First time home buyer here—although not ideal, would it be better to take money out of my Roth or traditional 401k to help pay for the house?
I am an immigrant that’s working in Canada for an American company. There are always lots of fun conferences and work trips that I’m eligible for and invited to in the US. But I always need to give up my spot because I never get enough notice to apply for my US visa, they always only let us know a few weeks before. Feeling so left out and frustrated.

I have an interview at KPMG scheduled on Tuesday & I can't sleep as I'm highly anxious & I really want this job. I tried distracting myself but isn't working. Maybe I just want to talk about it.
Had a great informational interview with a managing director last week. I mentioned that I applied for a position within the company and he said he could fast track the application for me. I sent him my resume at his request. I want to follow up. Is it too soon given that we met last week? Also, assuming he was genuine, I want to update him on what I've done since our chat and ask about how to prepare for any upcoming discussions/case interviews? Am I being too pushy? Thx
Thinking about trying to move from audit to deal advisory - any idea of the bump in salary, if any?
How should you respond to a LinkedIn recruiter when the time isn’t right but you don’t want to burn a bridge? I just started at McKinsey a few months ago and a Big 4 recruiter reached out, now is not the right time to move but I’m not sure what the future holds and don’t want to completely ignore someone either
In terms of benefits (vacation, medical/dental, phone/internet reimbursements, etc), which is better EY or Deloitte? Asking because my niece received offers from both and just wanted to offer her some help in deciding.
Hey 🐠 fam: have a verbal offer from PwC awaiting the offer letter but expected to get it today. Partner from the group I interviewed with called me personally to congratulate me and offered to talk if I had any questions, etc. he seems really excited to have me and values my prior experiences and our Interview ran well over the allotted time. Is this standard or has anyone had this happen? Unsure what to do haha I’m sure I can think of questions to ask? Not really sure what the best move is
Does Deloitte sent rejection mail after an interview? I have completed my interview on 24th of November, so far I haven't heard back from the team. I tried contacting the HR as well but no luck.

Had multiple negative rapid tests and an initial negative PCR tests last week.

I recently attended my company’s holiday party. I’m fully vaxxed w/ no symptoms, I’ve already contacted work and friends I was w/ over the weekend. What do I do now?
