Hello all, need some advice.

When asked, I got a reply saying, 'It's been drafted and sent to the attorneys for their signature'
Stop giving me stupid replies. I'm not even a client!

Moving to DC later this month (from Europe) and I started following DC related Instagram accounts to learn more about the area (Washingtonian Mag, Washingtonian Probs, clock out DC, etc) and I’m really taken aback by all the shootings.

After 20+ years with the same company I have accepted a position with another company. Idk if the new company is considered a competitor so I’m unsure about how to handle turning in my notice. New job won’t start for a month but I’d like to do the right thing to prepare my team for when I won’t be there. I barely know my manager (new to company) or director (new to team) and we all work remotely so I’ve never met them in person and don’t know if I can ask questions off the record. Continued…

How do you guys handle working with a staff accountant who just completely ignores you when you delegate work down to them, and who gives you an attitude all the time? If I send an email, I also have to follow up with her on teams multiple times, and hope after a few hours she actually does what she says she will do. I moved from public to industry recently, and I’ve always had great staff that wanted to do well and have never experienced working with someone who just doesn’t want to do the job.

Question: one of my colleagues from previous firm tried to recruit me and promised to share the bonus with me. I joined the company, and one of my own collegue wanted me to refer him also. But she knew about it and because I’m traveling the next day. My colleagues asked her to send the resume. The HR knew about it, and was trying to give me credit, saying he can contact my colleagues directly. But I didn’t want to complicate the situation so I said she could have it.
