When telling your project team that your pregnant and expecting in a few months, do you tell them in person on the phone or is sending an email okay? I get telling your immediate team member who you interact with in person is probably better, but what about senior leaders who you may only talk to once or twice a month?

I told my senior leaders on one of our monthly 1:1 calls. I told the rest of my team during our daily morning stand up call on a random Friday where work was light.

Has anyone had their SO ask them to take a pregnancy test? Told my SO I was nauseated this morning and he totally freaked and thinks I’m pregnant. Would you take a pregnancy test if your SO asked?

How do you tell family/friends in a non-awkward/micro managing way how to help with your kids? For example- someone offers to hold baby, but isn’t holding him in a position he likes and he’s crying. Or someone offers to help make a plate for toddler, but isn’t cutting up food the right way or is telling her she ‘has to finish her plate’ when that is not the way we teach her to eat. I am appreciative for people offering to help, but I don’t want to seem rude when I ‘correct’ them. (Cont’d).

Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown.

I’m a professional not a child to berate.

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
