I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
Hello everyone Currently am working with shriram life insurance as a Business Development Manager has been from last 2 and half year of experience. Before that am working for yes bank, now am looking for enter in IT sector. Can plz suggest me any references or the thing which i should adopt.
Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.
Went on a date and he has a child on the way....... should I just step away? would y'all date a man with a child on the way?
I am 9 months pregnant and my firm offers 16 weeks maternity leave. Well, it just so happens that I was offered a job at a new firm, and they are flexible with start date but do not provide maternity leave (understandable since I don't even work there yet). Is it possible to accept the new job with a January start date, but not tell my current firm until a normal notice period ends, so I can keep mat leave? No payback requirements or anything. Would they know somehow?
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Is there an appropriate timing to tell the firm that you are pregnant?How many weeks along?
Looking for a Desi inspired gown/dress to wear at my baby shower. What are your favorite south asian online brands to shop? must ship to US and nothing crazy expensive.
Has anyone figured out anything creative for a baby shower in a pandemic? Is it still okay to send out cute invites for a virtual one??
Hi Ladies, This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the sisterhood. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..
Doing some benchmarking as we revisit our leave policy. Do any of your firms offer external career coaching for transitioning into / then back from parental leave? Any organizations you’d recommend or things you’ve found to be particularly helpful / successful? Thank you!
Hi! We have a jogathon fundraising in my son’s school. Most of our families are overseas, and don’t want to ask donations to few friends during this difficult times. Our friends also have school age kids. Is it ok if we just do one donation as family? My son wanted to get the expensive prices, but dont want to spend $150 for a kid’s hot lunch. Sorry if it is a dumb question but it is our first fundraising. Thanks
Ladies with widow peaks and lots of baby hairs - what do you do to tame your hairline and have it look sleek and neat? I’ve considered doing laser hair removal for my baby hairs but open to ideas! For reference I have dark wavy hair.
One week into kindergarten, already scheduling my first PCR for a sick kid. Buckle up, I guess?
How much do you budget for a kid each year? Not including daycare or medical. My husband and I are trying to estimate future cost and are not sure how much to plan for each kid per year. Guesstimate?
How long is EY maternity leave? I was offered a position a year ago and the offer is contingent on a clearance so I have to wait. But at the same time I want to start a family. It has been a dilemma:(
Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?
For moms in California - can anyone explain to me how the FMLA/Paid Leave works in coordination with EY’s sixteen weeks? It seems that all the new moms take 6 months and I’m trying to figure out how that works if we’re only given 16 weeks. My husband and I are currently waiting for an adoption placement so I have no idea when I’ll need to use it, but I’m hoping it’s sometime soon :) Since I’m not actually pregnant, asking these questions feels weird, but I keep reminding myself it’s okay. TIA!
Thoughts on Columbia Business School...how does it compare to other top 10 MBA programs?
If you’re a campus hire, what made you choose deloitte over other firms/b4 firms assuming you had other offers? You don’t get a bonus until you hit senior and tiny raises. I don’t think many other firms/big 4 do that right?
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!
I'm a third year litigator at a V50 thinking of making the jump to transactional work (M&A, Securities, PE). Anyone done this before? What was the switch like? Are you happy with the change?
Do the Big 4 in large cities require a car? Chicago, New York, LA, Seattle, etc. Mostly interested in Seattle.
Left my pillow at a Westin. A regular sized pillow with a bright red pillow case on it. Called the hotel and they said they didn’t find it.....anyone have experience with lost and found??
Hello Consulting moms, I was wondering if anyone moved States after COVID? I live in Virginia (15min from DC) and we’re thinking to move to Texas. Dallas or Austin not sure yet. Any recommendations/advice? My son will be starting Middle-school. 😩 Thank you so much!
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?
37 / F / VP CD / NYC --> Chi? Wondering what a move to Chicago would mean when it comes to salary. What is the avg range?
About to leave my firm and consulting for an industry, totally remote role. Just surprised at how sad I am feeling at this point. Any of you other mama’s make a similar move?
Trying to decide exit plan. 3rd yr doing insurance coverage litigation, but not sure if I can spin that into in house or a solo gig that won’t be too much of a pay cut at some point (sole breadwinner with family here). Any ideas or anecdotes to help inspire the next steps?
Booz Allen: sorry for the repost but I need to add details. 4 years consulting experience, MBA, doing general management consulting. Need info so I can negotiate my salary increase.
