Car-owners: I scratched my baby benz. Should I go to a body shop this weekend or it doesn't really matter when I get it fixed...
Midsize firm and I am the only female. The managing partner told me I can’t take anymore vacation days if I take maternity leave. Thoughts?
Crew - what are cool and offbeat indian baby boy names?? We’re having our first kid !! thanks in advance for suggestions!!
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
Ugh. First okcupid DTF and now hidden valley ranch BFD. Lazy and trying too hard at the same time. And to make it more relatable to suburban dads, they got the kid to say- I’ve got your bfd right here
I’m compiling a list of mini red flags in relationships: 1) Men who “just don’t like Hillary Clinton”, 2) Elon Musk fan-boys, 3) Men who have an opinion on your choice of birth control. What are yours?
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
I’m thinking of quitting breastfeeding. My baby is 5 months old, and my pump just broke, and I don’t think she’s eating enough and she wakes up all the time at night hungry. I’m just tired of it. I’d rather just give her bottles and call it a day. Ready for my husband to take the night feeds, ready to be able to have a drink without worrying about when I have to feed the baby. The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
What is Accenture's parental leave policy..
Hi ladies. I realized I don’t have any pregnant lawyer friends and thought it would be great to make some. Check out the newly formed Pregnant Lawyers bowl!
Did he ask Mother before doing this?
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
I am single n looking to adopt a dog, with travel every week, how much would it cost per week for dog sitting and such? Any ideas how I can keep traveling and have a pet. Ideas appreciated. Desperate
Can you quit your job while on short term disability? Will you get penalized somehow? Going on maternity leave (which is just short term disability) and planning my options out.
My dad has had a bout of depression come on and it seems pretty serious. Can you please please advise how to help a parent who is struggling? My sister had also been struggling for a long time and I am used to that but not sure how to help a parent. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
I'm sitting next to a college kid in first class. He is already two Jack and cokes in and we haven't even taken off yet.
Was trying to schedule an interview, but the recruiter didn’t get back to me with a time. I sent a reminder. No response. What do I do now?
If I live in a state and don’t work any days there (nyc, work in nj/travel) is that going to allow me to pay less income tax?
Started CloudGoat this weekend to learn Cloud-based pentesting for interviews and really enjoying it. Does anyone have other labs they'd recommend for learning Cloud pentesting? Happy to take Azure and AWS security courses through my firm to learn the back end of it all as well.
Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
At this rate, one of these days Ill just shoot myself in the head on one of these lovely Zoom calls, or throw myself off a bridge with a sign around my neck that says “Deloitte made me do it”
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Any ideas on how to structure a virtual happy hour with a big group, to really get people engaged?
Just entered my staff 2 year this summer. A large (private) client just reached out thru a recruiter to offer me a senior accountant position.
Is there anyone at Dropbox who is willing to give me a referral for a software engineer internship position next summer (2022)? Thanks in advance!
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!
"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who opposes vaccine and mask mandates, tests positive for COVID-19" No thoughts. No prayers. https://news.yahoo.com/texas-gov-greg-abbott-who-opposes-vaccine-and-mask-mandates-tests-positive-for-covid-19-211349823.html
Hello, are there any openings for Salesforce Manual Testing/BA roles in CBO internally? Also, will the folks from non testing/non technical background be considered?
First day at Accenture coming up. Should I send a Teams ping out to the MD that interviewed me just to say hi and thank you? I’m an L9 consultant and really want to build a good network. Never had to do it at my old job, and I’m a bit of an introvert. Worried I’ll be a nuisance by reaching out to MDs just to say hi?
I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake
