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?
People on H1B, how is the job market now? I haven’t applied for a job for almost a year now and returning from my maternity leave soon, so wanted to gauge if it’s a good time to start applying.🙏
When did you all feel baby move? I know it can take up to 22 weeks and be considered normal, but I’m so anxious at 18 weeks that i haven’t felt anything yet! It doesn’t help that I started out pregnancy overweight which i read can mean it takes even longer ☹️
Anyone else keep getting recruiters sending jobs with great comp that you can't take Bc maternity leave is coming up in Nov 😭 so sad!!
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
Weird. 32 and only started thinking a kid might be fun to have with my boyfriend but also thinking “nahhh”. Going to be a fun 10 years figuring that one out 🤔
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!

Thoughts on this?
Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.
Husband only gets 2 weeks of paternity & I said I would want a FT nanny to help once he goes back to work. He said his parents (retired) could just stay with us & help out. 😱
Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early. Let me know your thoughts!
My girlfriend is pregnant and is looking for recommendations for good cotton wear during later stages of pregnancy. Any ideas?
Married People/Life Partners - what conversations did you have with your spouses before deciding to become pregnant? No offense, but this question is for people that have actually planned and have leveraged 21st century contraception to do so along with strategic financial planning. I’d really like to understand the steps you and your spouses took before deciding to have a baby.
Anyone at RSM know how long you have to be at the firm to be eligible for the parental leave benefit?
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
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.

Hi folks! I’m close to 2 years at Amazon, been in tech sales for 6 years, and recently moved to a marketing position in events. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do something outside of sales, but burnout is pretty unavoidable at AWS. I’m curious if y’all have suggestions of other companies I should consider moving to in 6 months. Comp, WLB and inclusive culture are my top ideals. I’ve thought a lot ab Google, was offered a position at Hubspot but comp wasn’t enough. Please feel free to DM!

Interviewing for a senior manufacturing/quality manager Amazon out of Seattle, seems like a L6/L7. What would be the average compensation?
Does anyone here have experience working as a PM for a non-profit? I have an interview with one that I would love to be a part of. I can’t find much information online regarding salary expectations. I am willing to take a pay cut to join a non-profit I am passionate for. That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.
