I just want advice. I work 50 hours a week and my partner is a stay at home dad. He does great. But I hate my job and hate being away from my kid so much. I’ve made 53 this year so far and we are behind on bills and can’t afford daycare. I just read something that said being a mom was more important than the job and that’s true. But what if your job is what your family is depending on?
How does one get into SaaS sales?
I’m 37, 5 years into working for a distributor of building products and have climbed the ladder 🪜 from Territory Manager to Regional Sales Manager, but I’m in charge of 6 of our 7 states and want to travel less now that I have a child.

I’ve been informed that I need to do in vitro if I have kids. I would like to so would like to begin the process now while I’m younger. While PwC covers in vitro, if I choose to get pregnant in a few years versus today and freeze my eggs would they still cover it?
Need an opinion. I just finished week 2. I do an hour after school club at my district once a week on zoom and none of my own schools students participate. I received a very nasty and aggressive email from a parent making threats and hyperbolic accusations so I forwarded the email to the personnel at the district. They were supportive but is still willing to “work together to assist her”. I thought I was pretty vocal that I did not appreciate the way she addressed me and don’t take lightly to

I'm pregnant and have asthma. I've opted to stay home without pay instead of working the floor during COVID. I feel so bad for my coworkers!
Half jokingly asking... Is it unreasonable to ask if I can take a 30 min nap during the day because I'm pregnant and keep falling asleep standing or sitting... Work will be done of course...
I have ~900k ultimate rewards points and am hoping to use them to take my wife and <6 month old somewhere for a week before Xmas. Because of the baby/covid we’re not too keen in traditional hotels and/or anything that offers higher risk. I’m also sure most hotels wouldn’t want a young baby at their establishment anyway. Any point experts know how to use the UR points to book a house (like on Airbnb or VRBO) but still max that 1.5x benefit for booking travel with UR? Driving distance from nyc
PP hair loss….is there anything you can do!? I almost had a break down when I washed my hair! Is it better to wash more often or less often? Have to be honest dry shampoo has been my best friend, could probably spare to wash my hair more… was doing 3x per week before baby. Any help is appreciated!!
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?

I work at a very small boutique and have represented several law firms in disciplinary proceedings and against claims in litigation. I recently learned that some very large law firms have in-house counsel offices and would be interested in parlaying this into joining one of those groups. Is that doable? Do most of those in-house groups hire from within the firm? Are lawyers considered part of the in-house group but are also practicing law for externals clients on behalf of the firm?

Apologies in advance. I know this has been asked a few times but couldn't find an answer. There was an announcement that fully vaccinated tourists (B1/B2 visa) can travel from India starting early Nov but there isn't any official document that I can find. So, is it advisable to book tickets for parents to travel from India to NYC around Thanksgiving time frame? Thanks!
I interviewed with a big pharma company last week. They said 2 more rounds of interviews with offers in early to mid April so I assumed things were moving quick. Im coming from small firm, not in-house. If I haven’t heard from them by the end of the week is it safe to assume I didn’t make it to round 2? Or does in-house always move slowly?
Anyone here work at Baringa? Would be great to chat with someone there about their experience.

Anyone who tried the Billie razor recommend it? Or any other good options for lots of hair 😩?
I usually don’t celebrate my birthday, but I’m turning 40😅 and feel like I need to do something by inviting people I know. I think it will be a small group, maybe 10 at most. I’m thinking I’d like to do a nice dinner, but don’t want it to be expensive for people. So I’m leaning towards a happy hour on Friday, maybe get some appetizers for the group and then everyone pays for their drinks. Do you girls think it is a good option for the group? What’s the “etiquette” for this sort of celebration?
I’m considering going on a flexible work arrangement with 2 little ones. I have a 4 year old in pre-k and a 6 month old. I work in tax and I’m typically working 55-60 hours a week and then during winter and summer months i work about 70-80 hours a week (more during deadlines). My children are my priority and i wanted to get suggestions on what flexible work arrangements you ladies had or have in place and how they’ve worked out in reality. I’m open to ideas!
Anybody else incredibly grateful to be able to WFH while pregnant. Don’t know how other women can do it tbh
Newer big 4 partner here and have young kids that are homeschooling (not voluntarily) while I WFH (also not voluntarily). I’ve done everything in my power to minimize any effect WFH could have on my availability to my team, but have recently received feedback that a couple of my female team members didn’t think that I was responding fast enough to their requests. This seemed overly harsh to me, but want to know if other women are annoyed with their female bosses b/c of this too? Honesty welcome.
Ladies, have a beach trip planned in August and realized my period is scheduled for that week. I’ve tried skipping the week of sugar pills before and going straight to the next pack, but that resulted in a week of spotting. Could I stop taking BC for a few weeks (not sexually active), and then start it up again right when I’m headed to the beach?

Ladis, do you turn off if your date lives in a cheap apartment with two rooms mates (600 per month in NY)? And he doesn’t have plan to live independently any time soon and no motivation to buy his own place either. He is 40 years old if that matters. On top of it, I make much more than him and pay more than 50% of our dates bills.

Ladies, I suspect that the guy I am currently with is committed elsewhere/unfaithful and I need to confront him. I have had this nudge for a while and after attempts to get him to talk,I feel like he sweet talks me out of the convo. Any tips on how I can firmly address this without completely losing my mind coz I feel like I’m a bomb about to explode? I used to ignore little things about him but I think they are building a huge red flag.Im so depressed.
Any ladies dealing with infertility.. trying to have a baby for over a year.. it's so frustrating every month.. the work pressures don't make things any easier... Sorry.. I was just looking to vent..
Well ladies today I turn 30 I keep getting emotional not because I’m getting older but I’m just so grateful for people and experiences I had in my 20s. I’m also someone who stressed a lot about work and my career in my 20s. Now I still want to do a good job, but I don’t care as much. Did you have any realization when you hit 30? :)
Hi ladies! Do any of you suffer with hair loss? The hair at the top of my head has thinned out so much and I’m not sure what I can do to stop the hair loss or at least limit it. My blood work is fine so I’m really not sure what’s going on.

Thats so intrusive of your team. I would just say I'd rather not discuss my reproductive plan at work.
I never told before first trimester was basically over. With my first I was almost 5 months.
After the first trimester for most people. People that I’m close to knew sooner because I was sick. That is odd of them to be prying just because you’re recently married. The way my hormones are right now, I would have been irrationally angry lol.
With my first, since I didn’t know how my team would react and didn’t show for a while, I was like 23 weeks along when I told them. But with my subsequent pregnancies I told them around the 8 week mark because I knew they’d be supportive and I wanted them to know why I felt terrible most of the time. It was much easier with people knowing so I didn’t have to pretend I wasn’t tired and nauseous when I very much was. So I wouldn’t shy away from telling them. But if you don’t want to, don’t. And don’t feel guilty for flat out lying about such personal questions if you’re not ready to share.
