How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
If layoffs were to happen in the industry, who does it usually affect first? Jr positions? CDs? Random positions?

Bonus: - 7% Recent CPI reports: 6-7% inflation I directly sourced and did 80% of the legwork to get the partners a $26mm new account (where we had previously been fired in 2020) with a potential $9mm contract extension in 1Q21. Time to lateral back to financial advisory. Happy Thursday!

Agency moms! What’s your maternity policy? Do you get fully paid 3 months? Or more than that? What else did you negotiate for? I haven’t talked to HR yet but wanted to see options you took. TIA:)
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Is Herman Miller really worth $1k? Trying to justify it to myself… WFH all day every day so think a nice chair would be cool, but having trouble stomaching the cost
Saw this on LinkedIn this morning. I must admit at times I don’t get questioned by just men but women as well who don’t understand why I’m working tirelessly for equality. They either state it’s an uphill battle or “all in my head.” Has anyone been told that gender equality is a mirage? How did you handle the situation? No wrong answers!
I know it's early to even mention this, but has anyone starting preparing lessons for the fall? I want to create a remote learning webquest (how to use remote learning tools) so that students are prepared for anything.

I am sure it's been asked before a few times but I didn't see straight forward answers after searching. Trip to Kauai - Me and SO, we are fit, hikers, and will travel all over the island for hiking and snorkeling at remote locations. Pick one hotel and please tell me why? The Westin Princeville Pros: Best property closer to Na Pali Coast Cons: Far from all other attractions OR Koloa Landing at Poipu, Luxury Collection Pros: Centrally located Cons: Touristy and not the best property
I am not approved for financing the car due to immigration status and limited credit history. Leasing (1.99% - 2 years) and cash are feasible options. I really want to own the car so should I buy it off in cash or lease to build credit history?
