Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.
Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
Senior associate at Am 200 firm here, billing close to 190-200 a month from time to time/18-1900 a year, on partnership track, and making 230k a year. One 6 yo kid. Husband a partner at Am 200 firm and makes half to a million a year. Question: What would you do if you were me? Understood that it is funny for me to seek life advice like this, but I genuinely struggle with this and want to hear thoughts.
the siriusxm campaign this year by Translation LLC with all the celebs sharing the same house is cute, wholesome, and occasionally funny, too. i keep seeing it on IG and something about it really appeals to my inner kid (“whoa, all these people live in the SAME HOUSE?!”). good work!
I had a parent of one of my students ask today if I tutor over the summer. It had never crossed my mind, but I know it would be insanely beneficial for him. He’s a tough kiddo and relationships are key for him. Summer school with someone new likely would not be nearly as helpful, and he’s on my roster for multiple years. Has anyone done this?

Perspective: monogamy is anti-human nature; in this era where each parent could raise a kid independently, marriage tends to be a shackle on many aspects of life. We live once, why does society expect us to live with 1 person for 60+ years? No wonder divorce rates are through the roof!

Any tips on Pocono Mountains? Where to stay? What to do? With spouse and a 7 year old kid. Thanks!
I have a petty sister-in-law who insists that my husband and I live a life doing whatever we want and I don't go to see my bro or nephew because I don't care for them. Mind you I go over minimum once a week, even if just for 30 mins cause I enjoy seeing the baby. Is it worth confronting her when she posts shade on her IG immediately after a convo with my bro about not passing by. My next instinct is to ignore and stop reaching out to them (I usually initiate)
Has anyone felt depressed after having a kid (male here)? I feel anything I do for either my S.O. or for the baby is not enough and can’t manage this job + personal life. Some days I think everyone...
Hey ladies, looking for tips for de-stressing/mental health. Work and life are both so stressful at the moment and I’m starting to have symptoms manifest physically in my skin, hair etc. I can’t change the current work or life stressors but looking for any tips on things I can do to help feel less anxious and overwhelmed. Also trying to get pregnant soon and v worried about the impact stress will have on that process.

Have a great opp with a new company for a leadership role and to make a run at partner. BUT there are partners that I had a huge negative interaction early in my career (my first consulting company, we’ve all subsequently moved around). At the time I was young and in the wrong and one of the partners tried (unsuccessfully) to sack me. Should I reconsider the move? Would they block my bid for partner based on bad blood from 10 years ago?
Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!
I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID. We don’t have family nearby to help when daycare closes and I’ll be headed into busy season upon my return. I’m already on a reduced schedule. No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.
Are MBA’s helpful in Canada? Assuming it’s for a sponsored M7 MBA, coming back to the same firm at the same salary (MBA is optional)? Not sure if it’s worth 2 years of salary.
