What happens if someone is on maternity leave / maternity STD during annual raise etc.? Is it held off until they are back? Or do they get it on time?
Advice, please? Boss in subsidiary seems jealous auntie-boss and grand-boss @ parent co are starting to pay attention and give me more interesting work, which I want. How do I side step him?
I know I may sound like a total entitled bitch but I get so irritated with my in laws. I love them dearly but they always say they want to “help” with the baby - but that means that they watch her for 30 minutes and then if she fusses or needs a diaper change they hand her back to us. I’m okay with this except that they ALWAYS say they want to help. And then when they come here on the weekends we are furiously cleaning and cooking because that’s the only time we have. I told my husband (cont.)
We have an AMAZING nanny - we adore her and she is so great with our child. We are just using her for 6 months while we wait for our daughter to get into a nursery program. We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?
I was an overachiever as a child and now I’m just an anonymous cog in a wheel. I make zero difference in the world.
Maybe staying at home this long has made me more critical, but I’m struggling to maintain any suspension of disbelief with ads and tv shows. Case in point: the MB ad where the kid snuggles the dirty, grime & bug ridden toy off the front of a truck - seriously!? And don’t get me started on ‘Your Honor’ - WTF, do they not have fingerprinting in the NOPD???!! Case closed.
I'm 33 weeks pregnant and exhaustion is hitting me really hard, even worse than in my first tri. I'm sleeping 6-8 hours a night (I'm waking up without an alarm and unable to go back to sleep) but then need a 2 hour nap in the morning (?!?!) to get through the day. Even then, I'm still exhausted and having a hard time focusing when I wake up. Any tips? I've been using melatonin at night, which helps but isn't fixing the whole thing. Ideas appreciated!

New father here.. can anyone share how far they were able to take their newborns / toddlers on road trips ? My kid can barely tolerate the car seat ( Graco) beyond 1 hour
Has anyone here made partner after having children at their law firm? I’ve gone through two maternity leaves at my firm and am getting the impression that because my “numbers” (billables, revenue etc.) haven’t been as good as other associates who do not have children (or stay-at-home help for their families), I won’t be put up on time. This isn’t surprising to me, but I am ALSO reduced hours and I’m not sure how I will ever hit the numbers that other associates typically do (cont’d)
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?
Growing up, gay 🐠, how many of you had a male role model? (father, uncle, male close relative, etc., that was present enough in your life to be a positively influential role model)? I had none, and was curious about others.
Saw a very very faint line on the Walgreens test. I’m 7 days before my next period. Is it too early to test ? Is a faint line (barely visible) normal, even when you are not pregnant? Trying to understand if I should be excited .

I am moving from USDC Lake Mary to Gilbert early next year. I am looking to buy a home there within few months of moving there. Things I am looking for are a good school district (kid will start school next year) and possibly some Indian population. Any recommendations?
Pregnant with our first, we were so excited, we told my in-laws (incl my BIL and SIL) when we were 7 weeks. Found out two months later they decided to start trying and got prego too. So we’re due about 5 weeks apart. My MIL has a huge family that always throws baby showers. My MIL told them not to throw either me or my SIL a shower because we’re due so close to each other, don’t like each other, and she doesn’t want people to have to go to two showers. My mom died when I was little…

Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb

Accenture F&R practice or Deloitte S&A? How is the culture, salary different and career growth?
I moved from B4 to industry accounting about 5 years ago. I currently work as a corporate accounting manager at a software company. I recently hired an big 4 audit senior right out of public and I’m struggling to get him up to speed. Does anyone have an example of reasonable vs unreasonable expectations for a senior accountant moving to industry after 2-3 years at B4 audit?
Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
