I am debating an offer from Northrop Grumman (in DC area). It would be a 10k paycut, going from 105k to 95k. Currently in industry right now, and prior to was in federal consulting. The benefits seem great at NG and work life balance seems awesome. I have a pretty decent work life balance now, when we’re not in the middle of integrating a new acquisition. Current company is also pretty lax about drinking (some ppl drink in the office) and overall less strict. But the place is a disorganized cont

My intern’s writing is good, but he is somewhat dumb and so not tech-savvy. He was trying to make charts from tables with numbers in text format today and asked me to help out. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Should I take the initiative to mentor this kid or just let it be? He is in grad school. I can’t sit around and teach him these basic things, though. His attitude is too lax as well. I asked him to fix the excel, and he was like, he’ll send it tomorrow. And that was 5 minutes of work. 😑 Or am I being too judgmental?

Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?

Covid question - I work for a small firm (7 lawyers, 4 staff) and do estate planning and probate. They stopped WFH in May, and my office’s Covid policies have been... lax. No masks, half the office has gotten it, I’ve had to self isolate because of work exposures, etc. Now they want to go back to having clients in the office for estate planning meetings instead of zoom. I don’t feel comfortable being in an hour long meeting with people outside my household - do I bother saying anything?

Extended family (live in the same neighborhood) wont stop "popping by" like once a week. They do not take COVID seriously and on top of that, they recently started sending their kids to school in-person. Parents get defensive with me and fall under the pressure of actually letting them inside the house (not garage or backyard) so that they dont offend the relatives. The relatives wear masks but they start getting lax (take it off or keep their nose exposed)...cont.

I think these would count as partner miles, not Alaska miles, even though it’s purchasedart AS. This would be my only non-Alaska flight so partner miles are less useful than Alaska miles.
