Can we start a doggo/cat/pet picture thread please? We need some positive content amidst the sea of Covid19 chatter.
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.
The first break we’ve had from work since WFH-life began in March is a great time to reflect on everything that’s happened recently. Looking back, how would you describe your experience as a professional during Covid-19? What’s changed for you the most? What’s surprised you?
I may have Covid-19 and am quarantined. There aren’t tests available here yet. My mgr wants a list of everyone I met with 2 weeks before I was out. I want to help but this feels like a witch hunt...
I went to my parents house (suburbs) to wait out the COVID situation weeks ago since my area was hit hard. I’ve found it extremely difficult to connect with my parents and carry a conversation...
Anybody having a hard time focusing? Not due to new WFH procedures but because of the general state of the world right now? I can’t stop checking on every new covid-19 update or worrying if I have it
please avoid making coronavirus jokes around coworkers of Chinese origin. If they are Chinese Americans, it’s offensive; if they are Chinese, then its straight out insensitive. (Cont)
How do folks think Coronavirus will affect remote work in the long run? Will companies be more open to it/push for it? Will demand for remote options increase a lot? Will it have little effect?
Has anyone been running outside to destress and get some fresh air? Parents are worried about covid-19. I live in NYC and do early runs where there are rarely anyone and maintain distance.
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
Everyone is terrified of the corona virus, but it’s not fatal for those who have a good immune system. It’s only dangerous for little kids and old people. I had the swine flu and still alive and well
How are you experiencing Coronavirus? Are you working from home? What's your professional life like now?
Just learned my coronavirus test results came back positive. Think I had a mild case and feeling well atm. Any questions for someone on the other side? Happy to share insights to soothe nerves.
Before Covid I was going to... buy a house and change job. Since Covid I’m... living back at home with my parents. Your turn.
Maybe I’m terrible, but does anyone else find it distasteful how some nursing/health friends in departments largely unaffected (i.e. NICU, L&D) by COVID are bragging about being on the “frontlines”?
What is the truth? People argue that the annual flu kills more than COVID-19. I’m 40+ yrs old and never knew anyone that was hospitalized or died from flu, or hospitals over-loaded. Who’s lying?
I’m regretting this even as I type, but too curious. Is anyone else amazed at how quickly everything tossed their freedoms to the side over this whole Covid thing? (Please dear god do NOT take this as a suggestion that there is some grand conspiracy at play). Just amazed at this response as an interesting case study in relative value of freedom.
Ex-GF and I live together and broke up in January. I was traveling heavily for work, then COVID happened and now we are stuck in the same apartment 24/7. Lease is up in 2 months. Ideas how to manage?
Has your firm gone to remote work because of COVID-19? Our national firm hasn’t even addressed it yet - even though our office is located in an area where all schools have closed for 3 weeks.
Two failed IUIs. Finally started IVF and put on medication, then COVID happened. Now on yet another burner case and am very stressed, and have no idea how to fit IVF into this job. Should I leave?
Increase in Covid cases buried in Friday afternoon news, restatement of jobs reports, yeah, there’s no stock market manipulation going on for sure. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/06/05/may-2020-jobs-report-misclassification-error/%3foutputType=amp
If you decided to take a career break right now, what would you do? Usually the answer would be travel but....COVID19.
Ever since I've been going out in Covid Era with my mask on, I've been getting SO many compliments about my looks. It's amazing. These same people never said anything good earlier.
Can we talk salaries? I have 10 YOE. Currently making $61k at integrated marketing agency in Houston. I’ve been told I’m underpaid by multiple people, but now with Covid, I really feel stuck.
4 years working in consulting out of college and accepted to UCLA part time. However, company suspended sponsorships due to COVID. Thoughts on if I should proceed and pay initially and see if they will cover later?
Reading consultancy posts in the CoVid bowl makes me a lot less worried about consultancies taking over from agencies.
I signed up for the boundless card RIGHT before covid to get the 15 elite nights but now those nights are completely useless. Is it smartest to cancel the card right now and sign up again in 48 months
PTO used to be implied frowned upon but with Covid, all of a sudden we get emails everyday: "take PTO!, you deserve it! take some rest! WLB!" L😂L. Isn't Quar. already PTO? Nothing's even open. L😂L
Does anybody have ideas on how to use 2 weeks of vacation during covid? Can’t visit family without international travel, most friends are with their family/SOs and social distancing. Pto is expiring so it’s use it or lose it. Im in NYC. Thank you!
Casinos full, restaurants working, people in huge protests... Covid not a thing anymore? Did we really have a larger herd immunity then expected or does hot weather hurt virus? Guess we see in 10 days
CoVID, Protest/police brutality. Looking into the next two months, any idea what the next big item dominating the news cycle might be? I think jobless claims will be the next one to dominate the news
Anyone flown recently? Looking to see what the environment is between Chicago/Dallas specifically and then American + other airlines & experiences in terms of Covid risks & safety. Thanks!
Um, I feel like my BF of almost 4yrs (1 living together) and I are on the brink of separating. I think COVID is putting it into perspective. We’ve gotten through the worst of the quarantine while supporting each other as best we could (very thankful for him). But his coping skills with stress (during covid) are lacking and as things progressed he’s just been taking it out on me more and more in the moment, then he feels awful for not treating me as well as I deserve (he treated me well before..)
My fiancé starts her residency in internal medicine in two weeks, so we took five days to enjoy a short vacation before she starts her 13 hour day, six days per week schedule (and providing care to COVID patients). Her schedule lasts for a year. The problem is, I feel so horribly guilty and anxious taking literally any amount of time off work it’s hard for me to enjoy my time with her. I feel like “big law” really cultivates and promotes this anxiety. Anyone experience anything similar?
I remember back in early April when covid really took its grips and people were told no layoffs in Q2. A PPMD on here commented that it’ll take 3-6 months before the real layoffs start. Crazy how true
If there’s not a statistically significant increase in the number of COVID 19 cases in the next ten days - after more than a week of massive protests and other related gatherings - I suspect States will accelerate their re-opening plans.
