Thoughts on black tie highland dress. My mother’s side has its own tartan. Could I get away with a kilt and Prince Charlie jacket at a black tie event? I’m tempted, but it might be too much.
Any advice for going through fertility treatments, especially out of state, when you already have a child, and with a FT job? I feel overwhelmed thinking about starting this process again. Oh, and I work in office 5 days a week. Obviously never been through it with a child. And now my doctor is out of state. Help. HSG and ultrasound tomorrow…then next steps.
This could work in a great way of stress burster. I mean if we can connect to Likeminded from corporate sector, it's a mother level of great feeling. And if that is of an opposite gender that's something else ☺☺
Are IVF babies at a higher risk of cancer or genetic defects than NC ones? Read some studies but they were conflicting & inconclusive. Clocking 36 with failed IUI attempts & wondering if switching to IVF makes sense. Was pregnant last yr with IUI but miscarried at 15W
Anyone have advice on reviving a marriage that hasn't gotten any attention for too many years because kids and work come first?
My husband and I are pretty good co-parents, which is great, but he isn't very responsive to my attempts to make time for romance, & the relationship has died down after 19 years. (Sex is good but the emotional connection isn't.) Last kid at home graduates in 5 years, and we may become one of those couples that divorces after the kids leave the nest.
I have a junior who is pregnant, she hasn’t announced her pregnancy yet to the wider team and she hasn’t asked me for a lighter workload, but I do feel guilty sending her more work. I want to make things easier for her. Am I approaching or managing her appropriately?

(FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
Anyone else stuck in a job because they don't want to lose maternity benefits?
I'm actively looking to have children. Medical advice tells me not to put it off at all, it's now or potentially never.
I have been approached about new jobs, have found jobs that are perfect but they don't offer anything above the statutory mat payments unless you have been there for a year or two at least. As the main breadwinner stat payments would be devastating for us.
Anyone else stuck?
Hello- new to the group. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and felt like I had everything pretty under control until recently. I have been feeling so uninspired it’s hard for me to stay focused even with my meds. I can’t tell if it’s burnout or something else. My confidence has plummeted and feel like I have no passions anymore. Any advice would be more than welcomed!
New parents: how are you managing setting expectations around your schedule and availability? I have a pretty understanding team, but am starting to resent all the extra hours that are often required. Tbh, it was getting a little old even before the baby. Are we all just sucking it up?
Kids school sent a note saying to keep your kid home if they have or are [insert every illness symptom possible]. Coughing is on the list… of course all my kids have a cough. Would you still send them? No other issues…

My partner of 2 years wants me to move in next year. He asked if I did would my cat be coming with me (pic of him below). I said yes I didn't just buy him for lockdown he's with me for life. He then said he's allergic to the cat, cat can only stay part time. Cat is also not allowed in the bedroom and he's not allowed on the new sofa. It's really sounding like he doesn't want the cat there at all. Should I even bother continuing the conversation about moving in?
Started a new job when I was 3 months pregnant. My probation period will end when I am six months pregnant (September). I am beginning to show and am not sure if I should tell my boss prior to or after my probation period. She’s a female with older children, and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback - but you never know. Thoughts?
I told my husband that I wished I was more in shape before getting pregnant and his response was “well you could still get fit” 🙃🙃
What is the Parental Leave policy at other consulting companies? How does commission structure change during the time off as a producer? If one of your clients buys an engagement, do you not get credit/commission?
Chicago Marathon was cancelled and running/strength was my main focus for it but living in AZ outdoor temps for running are a bit much now. Is a peloton worth it in an apartment? My apartment gym is closed again. Is it something that I can tuck in a corner and move out when I wanna use it?

I’ve been working for a company for 25yrs, looking for advancement. I’m considered an SME, managing people, Vendors and working on large system conversions. Have provided long term goals. When requesting feedback I’m told I’m on the right path, no suggestions on what to improve. I asked about timelines for advancement and not being given anything concrete. Recently interviewed with another company as a Vendor Mgmt partner. Individual contributor, high visible position with potential. Thoughts?

I’ve got an opportunity that I want some outside perspective on. Basically, a board member over several tech startups would like to have me work as a “fractional COO” over a few of them to help them get up and running. I’m thinking about how to manage it financially and considering charging by the hour ($100/hr, working 5-15 hr per week in each as needed). Should I be asking for equity? Is $100/hr too much? Too little? What software should I use to manage these relationships? Which pay software?
Anyone on L1 got an email about H1B application from Deloitte? I did not get it last year. Is it mandatory to apply? I don’t want to go to H1B because my spouse would lose their work permit, and they already submitted PWD for me last year.

Work from home has been great for many reasons, but the confession part of this post is how much a loud, disorganized, chaotic environment raises my stress levels. I’ve realized that I can be so much more productive in a quiet home office. But I know some people like the “energy” of a corporate office.
