Any moms who really badly wanted a girl but ended up with a boy(s)? How do you feel now? Do you still want a girl? Would you try again? Does it matter really, or was it just in your head? Had a difficult relationship with my mom growing up, so always wanted that closeness with my future daughter. FTM having a boy and a little disappointed, but feeling guilty for that too. Difficult pregnancy so likely won't have another. But I want a girl. 🤷🏻♀️ Please no woke left gender drama responses. Thanks.
CFP, asking advisors out more than five years... has it really made a difference in your career growth/AUM and how clients perceive you? I guess I’m asking, was it really worth it?

Does anyone actually have a Purple mattress? Have been highly considering bc current bed is way too firm (I’m a side sleeper) and I hate memory foam mattresses. Let me know which Purple you have or other side-sleeper friendly mattresses!
Partner community, it’s interesting to see so much opacity and variation around partner comp...for the benefit of the community at large, do you mind sharing;￼ (1) company, (2) Years as Partner / Equivalent, (3) cash comp (base + bonus) and (4) % Commission? Fully understand that “commission” is not the standard by any means but if you could express your comp beyond cash as % of revenue sold, I think we can cut through the noise a bit. TIA!

Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
Anyone looking for Sr Copywriters? Open to moving but remote would be nice too. Open to anything really. Get me out.
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
Required Education. Almost all jobs nowadays requires a bachelor’s degree (rarely substitute by experience). If an applicant has all the job requirements, but lacks the education, are they automatically disqualified or filtered out? How flexible is HR with education if it is a requirement?
Are there any women in this group who are reduced time in a transactional practice at a big law firm? I’d love to hear if you’re glad you made the switch or not, what has worked, what hasn’t. I’m contemplating moving to 80% now, and maybe 60% after I come back from a mat leave for my 2nd kid next year. FWIW, my practice group leader seems very supportive of whatever I choose and I am not up for any promotions for the foreseeable future.

How hard is it to transfer from a non-Big 4 national firm to a role in M&A tax at a Big 4?
Last night, I was at a friend’s with his friend. My friend was already in another room and his friend said something along the lines of “ugh. I’m so horny. I’m going to go watch a podcast and go to bed. Let me know if it is too loud.” He then said goodnight to our other friend and pointed out that he couldn’t hear him. A few minutes later, I hear really loud porn. I initially thought he was trying to see if I’d help him get off, but I didn’t do anything just in case I misread the situation(cont)
