I am humbled and in a state of shock. My best friends father (who is a client) has spinal cancer and been given a very short time to live. No bullshit jokes on this please, just tell me what VA will give me the best DB.
Received a job offer to go client side the day I found out I am pregnant again. I know I qualify for mat leave, but am unsure if I tell them before I start. I have a history of first trimester loss.
Did that guy get back together with his lady? Did that 31 year old decide to keep the baby? Are Cis-gendered white men still a thing?

Question for people with nannies/home child care in NYC…how much are you paying them? Any benefits being offered to them? Sick days? Paid holidays? Vacation? First time Mom and the range I am getting from candidates seems so high not sure what is fair in this field. I don’t want to short anyone working to care for my baby but also don’t want to feel like I am working just to pay for the care.

Just this second my long time boyfriend told me he is not planning on getting the vaccine. We were going to move in together in May/June. We each have a kid. Thoughts?
If anyone is looking to adopt an amazing pupper, look no further than my girl Annelle (Nelly) (6 yo). I’m trying hard to get her adopted! Super sweet, good with kids and dogs. Not cat tested. Happy to chill all day but full of energy outdoors. 🐾 https://petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1159058?awo=Atlanta+Lab+Rescue&widget=false
Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road
Parental leave policies for your companies? Doing a comparison and I'll start. Slalom's: 8 weeks for primary caregiver (maternity leave) 1 week for non-primary (paternity leave)
One friend announces an engagement, another announces a baby, and I'm sitting here on a Friday night baking cookies and coloring. Making thirty look shitty.
Has anyone starting trying to get pregnant after starting at a new firm or did you wait at least a year ?
It seems Campaign article on parental leave has made many rethink their attitude on the subject. Shame on you for only changing when you feared for yr reputation. And not when employees demanded it.

If my office location is Seattle but I have been living in Texas during coronavirus WFH period for rest of the year, can I contact payroll to avoid paying any Seattle based taxes(no state tax but they have some smaller ones)? Or can I claim a refund end of the year when I file taxes? My home address on ADP pay stubs is Texas based. Tried to look for older posts with answers but couldn't find them.

If you were applying to grad school (MBA) and had someone offering to write a rec letter what traits would you ask them to focus on? Rephrased, what traits would selection committees be most interested in?
Fairly confident I’ll get an in industry offer this week! Mixed feelings though... Main reason for leaving is WFH consulting just simply isn’t enjoyable. Getting harder for me to see the value in grinding for consulting. Is this short term thinking off? Do people think weathering this storm will give potential raises / promotions soon? I just don’t see consulting going back to what it use to be for ~2 years. I’m a consultant level going for promotion to manager.

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Anyone have any details regarding the airline status match, accelerators or challenge options that their firms have negotiated

Considering buying one of those «sit/stand desk converters». Any recommendations? https://www.vivo-us.com/collections/manual-desk-risers/products/desk-v000k Is it too late, or do we think WFH will last for a long while still, or will WFH 2-3 days a week become expected.
