Ethical Poll: Would you sign a petition to take a 50% pay cut for 4 months to ensure no COVID related layoffs happen at your firm? Answer in the comments below.
It's been 3 years, companies need to stop blaming everything on Covid. Your bus is running late? Covid. More wildfires? Covid. Wow, just wow.
Why is return to office so important for all these companies.. why force an employee to do things that affect life outside work .. specially when there was no loss , infact increase in productivity during covid . Hearing all the extents these companies are going to get people back and its stressing me out
Caught Covid at the agency holiday party 🤡
Just tested positive for Covid so I’m not going home for the holidays 😭 any suggestions on what I should do at my apartment? I know many NYCers sadly had to deal with this last year as well.
Ek chhota mota covid wave jaruri ho gya hai, saale sab company vale bula rhe hai aur ek achi chay bhi office me pila ni pate.
Anyone else paying close attention to the COVID situation in China? The thought of 2023 potentially becoming another 2020 worries me although vaccines are available this time.
Hi moms. Please help me make a decision. In a foreign country in Asia where neither myself or som speak the local language. We are choosing schools for my 3 year old school A : Montessori school has 15 kids in a class and 2 teachers and one helper. There is still Covid going around here so they will remain open and send sick children home . They seem a lot more international but the bus ride can take about 30 mins . They are also slightly more expensive. Continued…
Is three months in as an associate too early to tell that this ain’t it? It’s certainly not the “I’m super motivated and interested in what I do” and is more so “this is a means to an end and finances my life.” Just feels like a weird time, and I realize I’m experiencing the realities of how work has changed post pandemic. I recruited for this before Covid in 2019, had the internship cancelled 2020 summer so I never got to get my feet wet, and then did a Masters because offerees were expected to
What's your yard stick to make sure you don't come across too casual in a professional setting? In conversations, especially in office parties, networking chats, team building etc.
I seem to have lost touch with this due to covid and extended remote working.. I'm very guarded now and when I do make friendly comments, I immediately overanalyze and regret it. Happened recently with a partner.
People who crib about Deloitte has no WLB, either don't know how to work efficiently or don't know how to deal with their managers(micro managers or unrealistic target).
Work will be more compared to other firms, but people need to learn how to manage expectations, the flexibility Deloitte gives(even before covid), and you can easily balance out your life.
It's just that you can never stick to traditional 9-6 working hours if you need wlb.
Is it just me or does anyone else know or have an inclination that their employer committed fraud after receiving PPP loans during COVID pandemic?
Anyone who recently got covid want to share their experience? How long did it take to feel better? I was having sore throat for a day n now got runny nose, severe body ache, shooting muscle pain and fever.
Infant got Covid and has been having a fever for about 24hrs so far. Been giving Tylenol every 6-7 hours due to her discomfort AND temp above 102/103. Any moms w experience of <1 yr old with Covid? Any specific advice on handling Covid vs cold/flu? How long does fever last? Called doc and been following instructions but any additional real time advice is appreciated
POV??*Before covid Salary pkage of 15/18/20/24 LPA used to be given in product based or startups companies to someone with experience of 2-3 yrs. *After covid seeing so hype in IT demnd across geos WITCH, Acnture DXC EPAM n many more have also started giving these kind of salary package to someone having experience of say 3-5 yrs (even some Mngr don't have such pckg working in 1org for last 10-12 yr) How sustainable this change would be in current economic times Accenture Infosys Deloitte
I am struggling. My mom lives with hubby and I. She and he have issues. I’m am drowning at work (had a project that sucked the life out of me, and since then I can’t seem to find my way out of a paper bag). Currently recovering from COVID. Mom is mad at hubby and me bc we don’t want my bipolar (untreated) sister around for the holidays, and my mom’s behavior is like a bad roommate (fueling hubbys stress levels so much so he thought he was having a cardiac event). (Continued below)
December feels like a country song. Two dogs died on the 1st. A hard rain exposed latent roof damage and collapsed ceiling in two rooms. Stove, fridge and water heater all went out on the same day last week. Yesterday my spouse said they needed a break from the chaos through the holidays and left. Today a positive covid test. And 7 deals trying to close before year end requiring my full attention so none of the aforementioned can get any attention.
Associates, don’t let this become you.
It’s sad that I started a new career because of covid and divorce..I cannot even pick back up massage, I have been a CMT for 20yrs! Not even at the Envy! I turned down jobs for professional teams and the Olympics…I have a side gig that is dead! “Have table will travel”!! L lol
We’re doing a church wedding soon because our first wedding was during Covid. I have absolutely no idea what to wear. Any ideas besides a real wedding dress? It’s going to be 10 people and very laid back but I still want to look nice. And I want to like the dress in 20 years when look back at pictures😀
Have any of your agencies cancelled holiday parties due to the triple threat? Ours was earlier this month before it was this bad in NYC. Heard from a friend that her agency canceled their party for this week.
I am so burnt out. Heading for divorce - leaving abusive relationship. Work is suffering. Kids need me more and more. Triple flu/rsv/covid junk kicking my butt with kids and my own health.
Financially, I can't step away right now from work. But, how do I ask for help? How do I get help?
No family nearby.
How to get over Covid fast? Stuck in a hotel on the road, have the latest booster, pounding Tylenol, zinc, vit d and cough drops
Covid killed snow days. Pity the youth
Got my Covid booster and on a 1-10 scale of great-dying, I’m at like a 3, maybe 4. I’m going full man-flu though (I’m a woman) and it’s so incredibly liberating. Sent my husband to go get popsicles and random things I don’t really need. Whispering about how weak I feel and walking super slowly from couch to bed. I see why y’all men do this. This is power.
Doe's anyone else miss Covid pay👀🤷🏾♂️
I decided to skip my company's Christmas lunch last week. It was held at work with about 150+ people stacked in a huge conference room with about 15 people per table. No masks obviously. Over the Thanksgiving break , 3 members of my family came down with Covid (I was lucky I didn't) . We all were together for Thanksgiving dinner at one of my siblings. I don't want to take any chances. I have been Covid free this entire pandemic and I plan to continue keeping it that way
What documents or proofs a company will ask post COVID to join a new company. Is service letter mandatory or only releiving letter can work
This is how toxic big law is: I have covid and running a high fever, feeling like crap and partner is knows this and is still requesting a nonurgent bs 50 state survey to be done today.
Does anyone know if CIS is utilizing prepaid mailers for petitions submitted using premium processing? I know they stopped during COVID, but I’m not sure if it has resumed.
Will tech interview in future return in offline mode / walk in drive like pre covid time , or it will continue in online ??
It’s cold, flu, RSV and COVID season. Sending all you moms and caregivers strength bc once again you’ll be expected to stay on top of your shit at work, care for kids and keep your house from falling apart. Stay strong. ❤️
Not traveling to Philly, a suburb-local. Looking to do first date night with wife in over 3 years in early January. We've got 2 kids under three, COVID, no local family, blah blah blah. First time out together in a while. Suggestions for hotels with a view, things to do, great restaurants...all welcome!
Don’t mean any hate here, but I moved to Chicago for school in September and noticed that people are sadder and angrier. My experiences shopping, dining, making conversations with strangers (or people at uni) have been shockingly cold 😅 I came here several times before covid and loved being around locals. This time though, things feel very different 💔
Please heed this warning! If you feel off and your symptoms do not match up with your normal body feelings I.e headache type of odd feeling, please get medical attention from a doctor! I went in yesterday and found out I have an inner ear infection that stemmed from side effects from having had Covid twice! I’m on medication now but it could have been worse!
I’m looking for a new job and working on my resume. At my last company, I oversaw our Covid response, (policies, tracking, return to work, safety, communications, transition to hybrid, etc). I even received a bonus and letter from our ceo. Do you think this is something to include on my resume for HRBP/people experience/culture roles? If so, any advice on how to word this, struggling on how to best express my impact/ emphasize leadership, change, etc. thank you im advance!
Hello everybody, this goes out to all my fellow healthcare workers. Especially the travelers i.e. nurses, CNA‘s. OK.we are three years in to this Covid pandemic. Yes, this pandemic in my view is not over especially right now. If you’re making $90 an hour as a nurse, you can do a hell of a whole lot more ,help the CNA’s out, clean a room for the environment services department ,stock your rooms. No one deserves that amount of money you’re getting paid . Remember why you got in healthcare!!
Laying out my prediction now: inflation will be in the rear view mirror by 2023 as covid zero in China and the Ukrainian war die down and firms will be flat-footed when productivity starts to spike and the economy booms
90´s throwback Coronavirus mashup
My spouse feeling sharp pain in near to lungs while sleep either right or left side. PCP said it might be post covid effect but had covid 6 months back. We are talking to pulmonologist for details and yet to confirm the appointment meanwhile I wanted to know if anyone in this group has similar kind of issues?? Thanks

US traveling through UK covid restrictions
I am traveling to Greece next week and have a 17hr layover in London. My partner is not vaccinated for a genetic health reasons. Can we leave the airport during our layover if we have negative covid tests? The info online is mixed. Thank you!
Ugh, I've been nearly completely remote since the start of covid. Suddenly one of the partners is making a big push for all paralegals to be back in the office (even though she works from a DIFFERENT office!) Any tips on talking to her about staying partially remote? I do not want to factor in a 2-hour commute every day!
Anyone know what current LA covid precautions look like for productions? Remote producing a shoot and trying to find out if there are specific rules around this right now.
Anyone else feel like they are their best selves when prepping for upcoming interviews? I'm 100% hunkering down, studying like mad, no alcohol/drugs + 8 hours of sleep + working out, fully isolating (order in vs grocery shop to minimize chance of COVID), learning an incredible amount to fill in any potential knowedge gaps. Like that scene in Rocky 🤣
That visible path to more $$$ is the greatest motivator...
Sick of people saying don't wear a mask. Wear a mask people, if you have one. The CDC says only wear them when you are sick. But isn't that the tricky part of Covid19? That you can be asymptomatic?
I've seen that some lab levels can accurately predict mortality of COVID-19. What are you seeing
in your practice?

Hey Aussie Fish!
Londoner here 👋 looking to make the jump to Australia. How difficult is it to get a consulting gig (with sponsorship)? Post COVID of course. Any help appreciated! Thanks!
👋🏻 New mom here. I’m seeing a lot of comments about parents opting for “no sleepover” rules. Is this because of Covid, or is this a new thing? I went to sleepovers all the time as a kid and just wondering what reasons beyond a case-by-case basis would be to have this rule? Not judging, just genuinely curious.
Considering moving back to India. This Coronavirus situation has broken me, have no family here and I miss them all so much. Feel so alone here. Any one else in same boat?
Best ways to root out the red flags in a teaching job interview and a school tour? I'm finally ready to get back to the classroom but don't want to end up at another toxic place where admin doesn't look out for the teachers at all. I know to avoid places where janitorial stuff is being ignored or other health and safety issues, but this is only my second interview (worked for 10 years at my old school, left during covid). TIA!

Looking for some honest advice- After 4 yrs of trying to make the marriage work, I really feel like there is no point in continuing the efforts as they seem to be fruitless. Is it better to separate immediately or would it be better to first find a potential partner and then split? Female here...hoping to make a decision that I dont regret later. Thanks in advance!
