Any information on Akerman? Culture? Hours requirement? Pay? They have remote positions now, not sure if/how that affects pay.
Workday HELP! I need an amazing consultant or contact who can help us fix our workday woes. I’m not in charge of workday but I’m determined to fix it. We have massive issues with the complexity and ever changing security/permissions/workflows implemented by our system analysts. Every couple of months it changes and we all have to relearn simple tasks again. The analysts try to blame the users but I know it’s more than that.

Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
Can anyone recommend a certificate or course that is actually useful for developing professionals and/or reviewing performance? I don’t want/need something that is just a credential, I’m actually looking to get some formal grounding in these two topics so I can overhaul processes at my consulting firm. Thanks for your advice!!!
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Let's talk about Christmas bonuses: Should you be penalized for leaving your firm in your bonus if you've generated significant amounts for the firm? Is that common practice? Disgruntled associate. 😂
Monday morning and the only thing that goes through my mind is wow I hate my job. Between the strict requirement of releasing billing time daily, high billable goal and I guess a heavy workload (and everything that comes with living through a pandemic) it’s hard to start my day excited for work. And I hate it. Makes me question why I’m doing this for a living.
Finally had the "call my mom crying because of work" moment yesterday. I just hope I can hang on until bonus.

I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!

Applied for a strategy role and recruiting team asked me to interview for a different process improvement/innovation role. Does this mean I’m ruled out for the initial role? Can I ask about it during the call? New role is same YOE requirement but title demotion
I have a collection of stuffed animals about 30 probably more (bought some from traveling, picked up some left in the lobby in my building and etc.) I named everyone and they all have relationships with each other I assigned. I sometimes talk in their voices I created for them. Is this weird? Started about 10 years ago, so not Covid related.
With everyone seeming to be “hiring” I’ve had job interviews with various firms: EY, Plante Moran, Doren Mayhew, Rehmann, to name a few.. Apparently I just suck at interviewing, or the firms in my area are not hiring. 🤦
SA just joined the team for the last 2 weeks on the project. This is his first project and keeps making silly mistakes. Guessing this is not a big deal and verbal feedback is enough - thoughts?
