What's Your Take?:
Asking creatives to work on a project with lots of award potential but minimal budget/billable time allocations. So the majority of the work would be done on personal time.

Hello! I’m new to Human Resources (7 months). I definitely want a career and to be quite honest, make a lot of money.

ADA situation, opinions needed. Non-profit religious school is the employer. Employer sponsored benefits plan doesn’t include any coverage for hearing aids. Administrator (8yr employee) went to specialist and very much needs hearing aids. No negative work impact, but likely has had miscommunications bc of this. Would you entertain this as an ADA request as the Hr person or what would be another recommendation? Not my company but the situation has me stumped.

I’m planning to move from Toronto, Canada to SF (have a verbal offer from Google and waiting for others). Are FAANG health insurance benefits considered gold standard?

What will be typical monthly deductions and out of pocket expenses in Bay Area if I join Google / other FAANG? I’m healthy otherwise.

I have 6 formal YoE in product but have worked with product for 15. I love new spaces and working in dirty areas that are complex and need to be simplified and tied to outcomes. Strategy comes pretty easy and looking at unlocking value holistically.
Anyone willing to have a convo?
My freelance contract wants to cut my hours due to budget cuts. I’d need to find something to make up the rest of the hours. What’s your strategy when that happens? Taking on another contract only makes sense if it’s not full time hours otherwise I’ll burn out. How often do those come around?
