I am thankful for Slalom staff aug for allowing my low functioning self to fly under the radar.
I used to be a Big 4 hardo, but COVID fatigue/languishing has me ready to retire. The hardest part of my job is convincing peers that a handful of emails, meetings, and deck updates each day = 40 billable hours/week.
Any insight into the Covid hiring freezes at MBB? Wondering if new applications for experienced hires are being reviewed or if things are still on hold for now.
Just took a pregnancy test and it is ++! This is our 3rd, I am excited and we planned for this, but man the accountant in me can’t stop processing the numbers. Instead of focusing on our budget today (and the insane cost of daycare), help me find a fun way to tell my husband! My first I gave him the test and a little baby outfit from his alma mater, second I just said it while we were talking about how nice it is that our first is a good sleeper. Any fun ideas would be appreciated!
Is there any possibility of work of home again as the COVID-19 cases are increasing again?
I'm getting maternity photos taken in ~6 weeks, and I always go to a pro to get makeup, etc, done for photos. I'm not good at doing this myself
That being said, the makeup place I normally go to is only doing eye/brow stuff due to Covid restrictions. What is a good, easy, ridiculously simple/few items needed tutorial I can go to to do the rest of my face?
Any fish out there leave your firm either during or immediately after taking paternity / maternity leave? Any repercussions to take into consideration if you don’t return to work for a specific length of time?
I'll be in an internal wfh role when I return. Is there any chance of me handling that work and caring for baby girl at home for a few months? I'd love to wait until she's 12 mos before daycare!
Oh sweet summer child

I work in a self contained classroom. A parent of one of my kids wants to come and volunteer after learning all my staff quit. Can I allow her to do this? Admin has no idea and I'm not sure with FERPA laws.. advice, suggestions? What can I have her do if she can come?
Haven’t had sex since before Covid. I moved home to help my family during Covid and am now a nomad. Met a fellow nomad at a bar the other night and wanted to jump their bones but they were leaving town that night. I can’t get them out of my head now and I’m kinda mad I didn’t just go for it.
Started as a baby legal assistant about ten years ago at a transactional firm - now the majority (seven years) of my experience is in litigation. I am wanting to move more toward transactional or in-house now. Am I basically starting completely over? I am well respected and sought-out in litigation, but I'm unsure of how to market myself in the direction I want to go with as much confidence. Has anyone successfully made this move?
I’d appreciate your recommendations on best email marketing software. We are a small subsidiary based in the U.K. and to date we’ve relied on software of our parent company which is based in the US. The service provider they use seems clunky and outdated. We want to go solo here in the U.K. so we can be self supporting but I’ve no idea where to start. If anyone has any recommendations I’d be very grateful. Thank you

How has your company been dealing with pay bands based on remote location? I feel like there are as many strategies as there are stars in the sky, and everyone wishes they had the one national tier that a few SF/NY companies have adopted.

Totally depends. My parents flew with my when I was like 6 weeks old across the country. Apparently I projectile vomited into my mother’s HAIR halfway through the flight. They waited a bit before flying again...that being said, we traveled a ton throughout my childhood. I’ve had a frequent flier card since I was two lol
After a cancellation/rebook debacle, my daughter had an explosive diarrhea blowout all over my husband on a flight once, during the descent. Couldn’t even get up to attend to the mess.
Then landed and realized the rebook sent him to IAH instead of Hobby, where his car was parked and the carseat was. Poor guy. It was a nightmare. And why I do the traveling in this family 😂
We were a little more cautious then most. Just avoiding germs and hassles - and this was pre-covid. Plenty of time after 1 year old. Plus flying is hard, their ears don’t pop as well as ours so they need to be sucking on a bottle or such so they pop. Timing is tough if they aren’t hungry at landing. Then the screaming. Car road trips can be easier if they don’t mind being locked in car seat.
Depends on so many things... your willingness/stress level, babies willingness/stress level, places you want to go, etc.
We flew 14 round trips (all domestic) with our daughter between 6 weeks and 2 years - split between seeing family and following my wife to conferences to turn them into mini-vacations. Then 2-3 trips since she needed her own seat. She was fantastic (most of the time). Just have plenty of food, things to keep them occupied, and plenty of patience.
1) I would suggest doing a short flight somewhere as a test drive for a long weekend and gauge how they do, then build on that.
2) nonstop flights whenever possible
3) when they hit around 6 months, buy the baby jogger city tour stroller, folds up and counts as a carry on so you don’t need to gate check it.
“if it ever happens” 🤣
Sort of depends. I traveled a ton with my kids when they were babies; it was somewhat out of necessity. Mostly to visit family and such.
Traveling with baby is a real pain in the butt— so much to pack and prepare for. Once had a layover that got delayed 4 hours after boarding. We all deplaned but the airline wouldn’t give me my gate checked stroller so I had to carry my 4 mo old the entire delay. And I didn’t have enough formula with me and airports don’t sell it. Such a debacle.
Our first trip with 2.5 month old baby was a 2 hour flight to Disney. By then he had his shots. Babies are actually pretty easy travelers. He slept the whole flight. I’d recommend having diapers shipped ahead to your hotel if you’re planning to fly to your destination.
