At $1B revenue, I wouldn't be concerned about the smaller company being too small. If it was, say, a $50M company, I'd be quite concerned, but at $1B there should be plenty of guardrails.

Would 100% do it. If you’re “on partner track” they’ll hire you back if you need to go back

Yes I would do this

100% yes, if you're worried about the talent you're working with, you'll be in a position to change that.

Back to work post maternity and handling role of PM/ BA for the first time. I am from non-IT background and everyday it’s a struggle to learn on job. My senior managers are helpful but at time I can see their frustration. Though I am learning new skills but it’s too overwhelming on daily basis. My job stress is affecting my health and personal life immensely. I have been working more than a year and there have been many lows. I am not sure if I should stay and give some time or just quit.

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.
