I'm pretty sure that the men who sit near the lactation room can hear me pump. I don't really care...but is it in bad form? Is it bad for my career?
I'm pretty sure that the men who sit around the lactation room can hear me when I pump. I don't really care, but should I? Is it in bad form? And why can't someone invent a quieter pump?
Is it common to have to fill out a horribly-formatted Word document form when applying for design positions? And, designers, how do you resist rebuilding the forms? -_^
I am interviewing for a new job. Should I reveal that I have a 20-month old at home? Or is it better to keep it to myself until after the process?
Technically, you don't have to tell them and they can't ask you about it. Personally, I am very open during interviews (whether I'm the interviewer or interviewee) because I believe that trust is built from the very first contact, not until you get an offer. Having said this, doors may be closed but, think about it, do you really want to work for a company that would rather you didn't have a kid and suck the life out of you? A company that wouldn't understand that little ones get sick, nanny's bail or day care closes and you have to stay home?
If you are lucky and interviewing with a company that truly values its employees and encourages a balanced lifestyle, you may even be able to negotiate flexible work hours or what not if you mention it.
Its your decision and whether the job security is taking a higher priority than corporate culture and values. Hope this helps you and good luck!
I'm in wealth management and it's been a good run so far -- but lately my practice has started to lose clients. They are saying that managed money is not performing nearly as well as index funds. Should I be looking for a new profession?
I did an internship in wealth management, and it seems like a really fun track with a good work/life balance. But I'm afraid of taking responsibility for other people's money. What if I lose their life savings?
My aunt is a financial advisor, and she seems to make really good money. But it also seems like she is always hustling for new clients and it can get awkward. Is it possible to be a good financial advisor without being too pushy?
Can someone add rci at the end of there family medical leave to further bond with there child
I work for a small consulting shop, and my boss - the owner - is so hard on me and the other employees. She seems to actually try to make someone on her team cry. I feel like I'm learning a lot and I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with top-notch clients. But I don't know how much longer I can last here. Should I stick it out?
I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets became available unfortunately. I promised my team (two other women) that we would go but am having trouble finding an "in." Does anyone know of anyone who has extra tickets? If not, do you know any other routes I could go to get some?
