One week into kindergarten, already scheduling my first PCR for a sick kid. Buckle up, I guess?
Anyone receive an offer & negotiate a start date months down the road to take advantage of a better maternity leave policy, or any other reason? Wondering how many months is reasonable to ask for.
Thoughts on black tie highland dress. My mother’s side has its own tartan. Could I get away with a kilt and Prince Charlie jacket at a black tie event? I’m tempted, but it might be too much.
First time mom and curious to know what your schedule was like at home with a newborn and then after when you returned to work. I’m about 3 weeks pp and it feels like my days revolve around the baby. I’m lucky if I even eat on time and shower.
5 months pregnant and my PROMO GETS ANNOUNCED TOMORROW!!! 🥳🍾💕 if you’re drinking this evening - drink an extra for me!!!
How common are leaves of absence in PA? I’ve never seen someone out of work longer than a couple weeks other than for parent leave, but people on fishbowl talk about it as something you can reasonably ask for.
Pregnant with my second and my oldest will be 23 months when baby 2 arrives. What do I need to get with a second (second monitor, double stroller, what else?) TIA!
Anyone have a parent or parents who traveled regularly when you were growing up? How did / does this impact you now?(relationships, work, etc.)
How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?
Tomorrow they are requiring masks again and I was almost in tears when I found out. We have been mask free (recommended) since June and I feel like we are being muzzled again.￼ I am vaccinated, frustrated, and have been off of antidepressants since March. I don’t even want to go into work tomorrow. Anything is better than being virtual and I am trying to look at the bright side, but moving backward still burns. We have parent-teacher conferences coming up and I am hoping that it’s temporary.
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?
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?

I’m a 1st year prob 1 teacher & I just found out I’m pregnant (due mid-June). Definitely NOT planned and VERY stressed nervous. It’s hard to be happy right now. Advice on telling my principal, etc?
Anyone else concerned about getting a medical weed card in states where it’s legal? I’m worried it’ll impinge on… something. Not sure what.
cloud ☁️ fish 🐟: i am interested in learning more about the cloud space although i haven’t worked on any cloud projects. would getting newbie certs like AWS Cloud Practitioner or Azure Fundamentals be a good starting point? does anyone even care about these certs? thanks!!
I’m sponsored from Deloitte at my mba program and I’m planning to rerecruit for MBB. Some of my classmates and others in the program really question why I would do this. I personally did a lot of research into comp and it seems like MBB definitely would exceed in just a few years after mba. I guess just looking for opinions, is this an irresponsible plan? Or do you guys think getting MBB is def worth giving up my sponsorship
First year C here. Button down + chinos + blazer okay for the holiday party? Too casual?
Currently working as SM2 at PwC and interviewing with KPMG for a D position. Is is a good comparison in terms of designation? How’s the comp for D in KPMG? T2 city here. I have been with EY in the past and can vouch PwC offered a better WLB and culture. Always heard KPMG has better WLB and culture. Is it just a speculation or have some truth in it? Strategic Advisory FSS role, 8.5 YOE, masters.
What are good practices in terms of arranging a WFH workplace? I just realized that I've been working with my laptop since the start of the pandemic and now want to upgrade my workplace to something decent.
Does DFW airport have a separate security line for priority boarding? Running late. Have priority boarding passes. Wondering if that would help navigate security faster.
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
I’ve had one interview at a company setup through a recruiter. The first interview the hiring manager said that they were posting the job on their website that day to ‘cast a wider net to get the best talent’. Immediately after the interview he told the recruiter he wanted to bring me onsite in 2 weeks. So I’m in the final round tomorrow, but now today two other recruiters contacted me about what seemed to be this job. Cont..
Do I have to disclose where I'm working from if I'm on the bench? Flew to mallorca 2 weeks ago, I've paid up a month on the condo I'm at near pollenca. I log in and help with proposals and what not but during downtime I'm at the beach, exploring or biking. Nobody knows. Might stay here longer don't have a flight home yet... Just wondering if I can get in shit.

It's been a month I joined new company. No project allocation happened. Still Im getting calls from good companies to attend interview. Shall I attend interview? How to process if I got offered?
I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you
During the interview, If the interviewer recommended you to talk to somebody else in the firm but not the original rescheduled interviewers,what does that mean? After the recommendation, he stopped asking me questions. And the conversation only covered about 60% of the whole interview timeline. Shall I follow up with him about the ‘mentioned talk’?
Good marketing/branding books to read?
