Is your organization planning to require employees be vaccinated? I understand why management wants this but concerned about losing good employees because they don’t believe in vaccination or are wanting to wait until more people have been vaccinated to see if there are issues with it. I’m also concerned with moral if we require this. Employees may get it to keep there job but hold on to some bitterness or develop anxiety over it. Am I being too soft or over analyzing?

Buying puts on GME? Am I too stupid to join the hedge fund losers that are potentially looking for idiots like me to take over their positions? But logically all short squeeze ends at some point. On Thursday when price dropped to $100 then rose back to $300, that’s the shorts covering their position so guessing squeeze is already coming to an end?

Anyone have insights into Director level role at Facebook? I'm currently a PPMD and have been looking at SVP and EVP roles at other companies. I'm not specifically hung up on title but more concerned about the substance of the role (scope, responsibilities, seniority, budget, team, etc.). FB has been very vague and generally focusing on "its FB so its different " as an answer. They also have not confirmed if they can match base comp, they only talk about upside from equity. Any thoughts?

I am am Asian woman. I started a discussion about how we could improve our diversity and inclusion efforts on my UX team. I offered a possible solution. Out of a team of 14, only 4 responded, 2 female in support, 2 male with lukewarm and hostile responses. The silence is deafening from the rest of the team (all male). I don't want to be here anymore. I attribute this to being in Utah, majority white. Is it like this everywhere? Or if I change jobs, will it be better?

I’ve always been interested in FP&A/Financial Analyst and I know the role isn’t exact...
