Pregnant with my third child now and wondering what is the right time to tell work. I did it really early with my first two because I wanted to plan ahead, but now thinking about it, I feel like it just set me up for failure those years because I was reassigned from tasks and kept underutilized.
Currently in 6th month of pregnancy and not sure from when to plan my maternity leaves, Any help in planning things Doc says you can work as long as you want, so says my body uptil now. Not sure what to tell my manager.

Another question - These days does your parenting look more like a micromanager or a leader? What kind of parent do you want to be?
With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.
I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?
Hi , Does epam support maternity leaves or could be a challenge for recent joiners. Thanks!
How do you feel about putting on hold your family expansion plans because of a recent promotion? Do you think it’s a normal thing to do? And if so, how long is the normal waiting period? Knowing that the parental leave is about 6 months!
Gift idea for my mom who has been helping so much with baby? She’s not into designer items. Was thinking furniture or a new car when prices calm down but those can’t be surprises. She’s very covid conscious, or would love to take her on a nice spa day or vacation. No price limit.

Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

What is included in the typical compensation package of a CD in the US (agency-side)? Do you usually have a yearly bonus, a car, office phone, or other benefits?
Question for private funds lawyers. 1. Does the type of fund (i.e., PE, Hedge, or VC) or investment strategy make a big difference in your day to day work and do you have a preference? 2. Are opportunities for venture fund counsel primarily in California or does east coast - where I assume most PE and HF managers are - have just as many opportunities?
Is it realistic to go solo in the healthcare law space? Or do boutique firms have a hold on the market?
Is this bowl already dead? Assuming that most in this bowl, if not all, are onsite. There are so many situations which are unique to us. For example, no 401k and no PF contribution at the same time, bonus in INR even though our expenses are in USD, and so much more... Am I the only one who's thinking that Deloitte's policies for landed resources could do with an overhaul?

Hello, I will be making a plan to visit Chicago for my birthday for the weekend in early September. I have been to chicago for a few times and I spent unwisely just because I googled places to eat and the food is decent but those are mostly places that attract tourists. I don’t wanna do that this time. I need recommendations for good local restaurants to eat and perhaps a cool place to celebrate my birthday. What are your suggestions?

Should I expect a promotion to essentially be in writing? This entire "promotion" seems to be theoretic over the last 6 months. I was about to quit yesterday and now the position I didn't think I was going to get is starting to come around;timing couldn't be crazier. Should I give them an ultimatum? I just received an insane offer but I want to stay.
