Gender Issue: someone in my family (Father 🙄) keeps iterating on the issue, that woman should never be allowed in to lead positions. Can't deal with it but have to start yelling at him. Anyone h
Restarting an old thread: what do you do and what does the “more successful cousin/auntie’s son/daughter/family friend’s kid” do?
I found out I was pregnant & made a deliberate decision not to reveal this news at work as I had concerns that this might negatively impact my Perf Review (unconscious bias). I informed my People Lead & HR, & specifically requested that they not share this news either. I now find out my PL has shared this information. I confronted her indicating this was not her news to share but she deflected (kept saying it would not affect PA) & inferred I was over-reacting. What would you do in my shoes?
Have you been seeing any creativity lately around gender inequity, child abuse, LGBTQ, PETA, guns rights, or other cause related marketing? Why not? Because none of them are trending at the moment?
Hi Ladies! Does anyone have good recommendations for wireless headphones that aren’t Air Pods? Air Pods don’t fit or stay in my ears (I have small ears and often have to use child-sized). Thanks!
What does your company's parental leave policy look like (Primary / non-primary caregiver)? Trying to get a sense of what's competitive in the marketplace
When is it okay to ask about maternity leave when looking for a new job? When I receive the offer letter and benefits information?
Any other kid-free folks have trouble answering the often-asked question: do you have a family? In 2020, the euphemism of “family” as meaning kids seems outdated. (FYI: I have family but no kids.)
Recommendations for a divorce attorney in the Harrisburg or Philadelphia, PA area? Interested in collaborative process but also someone who can fight, if need be. No minor children or child custody issues, just splitting of assets but want to stay cordial, if possible, for adult children.
How do you deal with *over involved* parents, the kind that aren’t so much actually concerned about their child as they are with trying to control the classroom?
Does anyone here have a mentally disabled parent (schizophrenic) that they need to take care of? How do you handle?
How do you all feel about splitting vacations 50/50 in a relationship and dates 60/40? I might be old fashioned but this rubs me the wrong way. I feel like I have to work 2x as hard to be taken seriously at work as a woman and pay for all kinds of crap like hair appts, nails, makeup, outfits to be viewed positively by men. Not to mention, expensive birth control, periods, and eventually potentially having a child. 50/50 makes me feel like a friend and not that valued. Thoughts?
My hubby is going back to work next week but I’ll still be on maternity leave with my 4 week newborn. Does anyone have suggestions on how to split up our days into shift, especially at night? Right now he’s doing night time (midnight-6) with my expressed milk and I do mornings (6-noon) but that won’t work when he goes back to work since he can’t sleep 6-noon.
Going back to work after 4.5 months of maternity leave tomorrow. I’m utilizing PwC’s 60% phased return to work program so hopefully that will help ease the transition. Wish me luck! Any tips, tricks?
ABCD trying to bag a fob girl. Help. Doesn't like to talk because her English isn't good. I just wanna say "baby girl don't worry keep speaking your language, I'll get it translated" 😏
Had 4 beers, 12 chicken wings, and a giant piece of cake. I'm going to sleep like a baby! And might have to go for an hour long tomorrow. But first things first, 💤
Pregnancy and PA: how doable is it? When do you have time for Dr appts? I am freaking out at the thought of being pregnant during a busy season... and planning the timing seems unrealistic.
This mother is so worried about not sitting next to her 20 year old son. He is remarkably okay with it.

Has anyone ever asked for a market based salary adjustment at work? How did you go about doing it?
Has anyone made the switch from McKinsey to Bain? I'm considering it for personal reasons and would love to know if the culture difference is as pronounced as people say it is?
Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?). I’m really keen to go the MM but feel like I’m making a mistake the way my friends talk about it…. In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?
This isn't a meme but I saw it this morning on my uber ride to my client in Ireland. Funny stuff

Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.
Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!
Should I max out my 401k first or max to employer match and then throw the rest in market myself? I see it as why wouldn’t I hit 19.5 as I beat the taxes one time
What kind of work does Alvarez and Marshal healthcare / Pharma practice do? Where and what kind of roles do people exit to? Recruiter reached out!
Always running to the gate; never learn my lesson.
After 28 years of life and multiple degrees I've decided that the most valuable lesson I have learned is... righty tighty lefty loosey.
Anyone out there combining finances (at least for shared expenses like rent, groceries, vet bills, etc) after marriage? Trying to find the best way to do this when my credit card bill will contain both shared and individual expenses. Also please share if anyone knows what the best offers are at the moment for opening a checking account! I know some places have been offering $200 or $300 to open an account with them. Thanks all!
I have experience in Java Support for 5 YOE. I am not having expertise in Java development but understand the language. Recently i was able to clear an interview at CGI for the role of Java Developer. I am feeling less confidence if I will be able to survive. Should i take this chance or will I get fired if am not so expert? Please advise.
