Looking for blackout curtains for my toddlers room. Found these on pottery barn kids. Has anyone tried these? Don’t want to spend the money only to find out they don’t work https://www.potterybarnkids.com/m/shop/kids-baby-curtains-shade/blackout-curtains/
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
I’m currently on PIP b/c low utilization and “Performance trends” during my first pregnancy. I’m pregnant again, I was not promoted due to PIP, does that mean I won’t be eligible for paid mat. leave?
Thoughts about taking paternity leave piecemeal? I.e one month full time then a 2-3 days a week for the rest of the two months so I can work while taking care of my child?
Is losing a parent supposed to hurt this much? Doesn't feel natural. Depressing is not the word, it's worse. 😞

Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
Dog owners: can you give me a realistic estimate of how much it costs to be a pet parent? I’m interested in adopting a dog but want to go into into with eyes wide open. Thanks!
Hello, parents. Anyone here send their little ones to KinderCare? And what’s your experience? I live in Burke and am interested in sending my baby there part time when she turns 1.
Anyone here work at Wayfair? What do you think of the child trafficking blow up happening right now? Search #wayfair hashtag on Twitter if you haven't heard. At this point, we only have Wayfair saying this is ridiculous, but obviously this can't be a coincidence...
Hope to learn more if you bought an apt in Manhattan, or if you decided against it (renting/moving to upstate/Long Island/Jersey). My husband and I are considering to have a baby soon and are thinking of buying and living in Manhattan for the next 10 years or so (looking at property under $2M). Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!
Hi. My mother is 73 yrs old and is here in NYC from Chennai. She’s not used to weather below 28 C. She’s been having muscle pain in legs and shoulder. Went to doc & they’re just saying it’s coz.. cont
New dad here with a 10 week old. Wife is working extremely hard to take care of the baby and lately he's very fussy with her and but not me. He'll keep fussing, complaining and crying on her when he's tired and when she hands him to me he gets comfy and falls asleep in 10 mins. Its defeating for her and its killing me seeing how upset she is. She's amazing but she's getting it in her head that she's a bad mom. I'm hoping its just a phase... Anyone experience this? How long till your baby stopped favoring one parent do much? Any tips?
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 feel like I cannot ever clear a coding interview round when the questions are around graphs and other dsa. I mean its easy for me to work with apis and architecting a solution. Apart from leetcode is there anything that can help me get a better at these interviews?
New to options so appreciate the help in advance- have bought call options OOM - earnings is tomorrow - currently would make profit if I sold- but expecting good news tomorrow that would raise the underlying price. Multiple people are saying you should sell before earnings because the options price may actually go down - can someone explain if this is accurate and why?
Hello ORD, see you again in 14 hours
Has anyone successfully made the career move from an HR specialization to an HRBP role? If so, how? I have been working for 7 years in a very niche HR specialization and while I wear many hats on the HR team, I feel like this is hard to express to recruiters or even get an interview for an HRBP role. My niche area has really burnt me out, as it’s very political and I want to expand my horizons. I am already working on completing my GPHR certification. Any other tips?

How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
When people post on here it seems like most folks suggest going to levels.fyi but I always want to know real people's information. I just feel like it's too general and I appreciate more anecdotal information about how people got to where they got, their background vs their salary etc. And the current value/offerings of RSUs.
If you are lucky enough to get a delta voucher by giving up your seat on an oversold flight, you can deposit the voucher straight into your back account instead of taking a 6 mo gift card or delta...
