Starting from blood work to getting pregnant, if everything goes smooth what is a timeline we are looking at?
Going up for promotion next year. Will it impact me to be on maternity leave for the last 2 months of the performance period or will the rest of the year speak for itself? To wait, or not to wait?!?
Sometimes I have to think about what my client might've been like as a young child or what their mom might be like so I can write a nice, sass-free email back to them.
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately. I’m hesitant to leave Deloitte however Bc my husband and I plan to start a family in about 2 years and I know deloitte’s 16 week parental leave policy is rare in the marketplace. Mom’s - do you feel like it’s worth sticking around another 2ish years for the parental leave benefit? (FYI i am newly promoted to SC)
Do you pass the rat race onto your child? Do you feel like you have to grind to get your child the best resources, schools, etc?
Overheard. P1- I workout at home P2- I have a 35lb baby so lifting him counts right P1- you are lucky you can have kids P1- *WTF look* P2- I lost my ability to have babies couple of yrs ago *crickets*
Meeting my SO’s mother and grandma for the first time (they live across the country so we’re traveling there just for this). I want to get them a little gift, any ideas? We’re flying there so I haven’t been able to come up with anything that would fit my carryon.
Scared to change my LinkedIn to “Open to Opportunities” for fear of my company’s recruiter or parent company recruiter seeing it and then thinking I’m checked out. Should I be? I’m just curious what’s out there...
I need advice, has anyone been in a similar sit? Met a guy on Bumble in March. He had gotten out of a 4 year relationship in December. We dated for 2 ish weeks, on date 3 we made out and touched (no sex but we both came). After the date he tells me he needs time to himself, his mind is all over the place. We’re May and he reached back out (to congratulate me for my sisters baby). Said he’s in a much better place mentally, wants to meet up. CONTd in comments
Struggling with jealousy of another woman- Im pregnant and the father is off engaged to another pregnant woman he cheated on me with and I’m in therapy but it’s a total blow to my self esteem and heart. How can I get her off my mind? How can I change my mindset? How can I reframe this so I’m the victor and not the loser?
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
Is 210 HHI enough to live a upper middle class life in Dallas? Have 1 kid, and another on the way. Curious what people think.
Anyone at RSM know how long you have to be at the firm to be eligible for the parental leave benefit?
A coworker this week told me I look 13. I know I have a baby face but that’s so rude! I should have told her she looked 50 (she’s not 50)
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.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
