I would wait for the second trimester, like with everybody else

Around the second trimester is a good time to tell. Usually the bump will start showing more as well. The team will understand when you take time off for the doctor or when you’re not feeling well

Whenever you feeL comfortable having the conversation.. two of my direct reports told me in confidence right after they found out. But it is up to you, and how you want to deal with it.

Wish I could get pregnant

Wish you the very best of luck..

Put it off as long as you can.

Telling them too early might have the unconscious bias kicks in even when they might not want to. So might start to look into transitioning you out.. or giving you less of a workload and thus be evaluated on less of a workload.. something to consider.

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.

Desi fam anyone with aged parent (singular) in India (Mother or Father) how do you deal with it ? Are retirement homes still taboo?

My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..

Hot take: $1M net worth is very attainable by all the consultants on this app. Consulting is in the top 5-10% (or better) paying jobs in the US. $1M net worth would put you in the top 6-8% as a 35-45 year old in the US. While everyone starts at different points (i.e student debt) and has different life circumstances resulting in different timelines, consulting provides solid income to allow you to save, invest and build wealth, if you choose.
