Good Afternoon and Happy Friday everyone! I work for a larger fulfillment center and I am tasked with coming up with some new ideas to do for team member engagements. Usually once a week we hand out cookies, chips or popcorn with Gatorade. This is for close to 1200 team members. Does anyone have any great ideas?

With regards to bonuses, at 2100 hours/yr, the firm I have an offer with offers bonuses 2x yearly. Does this mean going above and beyond, or hitting target hours as it sounded? I’d assume above/Beyond
It's so hard to know whether to make a down payment when partnership is two years away and a big question mark..
5th year associate. Nearly all my law practice experience is litigation. I am looking to transition from litigation to transactional work. What can I do to help myself transition to another area of law. Take a bunch of CLEs, attend events, do pro Bono work etc. (Specially looking to transition to comercial real estate transactional work).

So is all the hype about weighted blankets true? Do you have one? Which one? And why did you get it? (I’m considering because I have trouble sleeping nowadays)
For google reviews, can colleagues leave reviews? Not employees of the same firm, but people at other firms with whom you worked or worked against? Or former classmates from law school?
New associate at a smaller firm here and a memo just went around stating that the firms monthly hourly requirement is based on your number AFTER the partners make any cuts. Is this normal?
Thoughts on ending sentences with prepositions? I always thought it was an anachronistic rule, but then again, this is an anachronistic profession

If my office is in NYC and I live in NJ, can I charge my hours in NJ when I work from home? Worth the hassle for the tax benefits?
Working on a “local project” as the only out-of-town traveler is kind of nice for someone who values alone time. Thought I would get sick of it but it has been 5 months and not yet.
Does anyone have any recommendations on beard grooming/maintenance? Right now I’m just using beard oil by Nappy Styles, but I feel like my beard is so damn curly that it prevents outward growth.
I had an interview yesterday with a recruiter. I asked them what the history of the position was to gain insight on where the person in the new role would have to pick up the mantle. They said there was an individual who held the position but did a horrible job. I felt uncomfortable when they told me this. Is this a red flag?
Grew up in Nashville and still have family there. Would love to move back but having a hard time finding a job. I’m an EP with tons of digital, experiential and content experience.
Im on a high profile project that would be good for my portfolio but I basically have nothing to do and left out of the whole thing. Should I just leave it and be more productive elsewhere? I feel bad looking like a freeloader when my name ends up in it and I haven’t done anything for it
How can I move from Accenture Technology consulting to Accenture Strategy? Is that even possible? I do not have my MBA btw.

ACD (art) here— recently laid off in NYC... going nuts (anxious, depressed, bored, etc). any ideas?
Any tips for getting started on intermittent fasting? I think the 8/16 model should be relatively easy with my schedule as especially in wfh environment my family eats dinners relatively early, often done by 6. That would allow me to do a small breakfast at 10am, then eat lunch and dinner with wife and kids. I've also read it's great to exercise near the end of the 16 window, which I can do in the morning then get an hour or two of work in before 10.
