Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
Anyone in big 4 considering making a switch at this point? I want to quit my job every day but the uncertainty due to covid keeps me from doing it.
$OCFT Anyone done DD on it? FinTech Unicorn that was incubated by insurance giant PingAn, seemingly massive untapped market in China and APAC due to archaic landscape of financial technologies
Feeling lonely and hopeless at home, so I started painting to express my feelings: Hope in Covid19. Stay strong! There are many things worth to try when you have so much time for yourself. 😊
Have any of you low key fallen for someone hard during virtual covid dating? ok just me? 🥴
Simone Biles showed the world that there’s no such thing as the wrong time to prioritize your health and safety. It might be inconvenient and costly, but it is never wrong.
How is the commute from DC to Gaithersburg (live in DC)? Apple Maps says 42 mins but I know that’ll get stretched with rush hour once Covid is over
Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?
How is the city doing mask-wise? Just got back from FL where Covid doesn’t seem to exist anymore and I’m taken aback by all the masking around the city still (particularly outdoors).
I’m so happy that my BMI is finally considered “normal weight” and not “overweight” https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm
I just saw on CNN that teachers and school staff can all get the COVID-19 vaccine if you go directly to drug stores in your area that have the vaccine. They have been given directions from the federal government to vaccinate public school employees immediately!￼
Coronavirus has really made me start to think about and value the simple things in life
What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
Anyone heard of Equitable Financial? They’re trying to pitch some life insurance investment vehicle for tax benefits. Sounds like BS but want to hear from other
Remember when COVID was a thing?
When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?
Freaking out after watching "what the health". Even chicken/dairy is bad? I already don't eat beef/pork 😣
Recently I have been exploring a career change but a successful first shot at IUI has me panicking about staying or going. Any lessons learned on how to approach this huge decision?
We're thinking of rolling out a weight loss competition company wide as part of our Health and Wellness month. Has anyone done something like this at their company and if so, is there an app that you recommend using? We want to keep people's actual weight loss amount confidential - we would love something that would record their percentage lost instead! Thanks in advance for any tips!
Woke up this morning feeling like I really want to migrate to the Middle East, any advise on the best consulting firms out there ?
Layoffs at CDM ... again
Car trouble has me spending the night in rural Pennsylvania. For any of you dreamers thinking this might be the remote life you're ready to live, I promise you it is not. Although, I did just see one of the absolute strangest local pawnshop ads ever. Think low budget, high-school-theater version of how Tim and Eric might do it, except unironically and lacking any real "show my face in public again after this." So if you're a GCD or up, 80% chance you'd love the ad scene here.
How do salary increases work at Big 4 if you come in an experienced hire? For example if I switch firms as an SA at 130k salary, what can I expect as an increase the next year since I’m not on the normal comp structure?
Anyone nervous about h1b ??
Laid off. Applying to jobs. Besides networking, what are the top job search platforms/websites? There’s LinkedIn, indeed, monster and Glassdoor. Anything else I’m missing or which is the “best”?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Where tf is the Titanium Elite support phone number on the Bonvoy app? Been looking for 20 mins and feel like I’m going insane
Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.
Raised concerns with my boss about a coronavirus brief we got from our client, think I really upset him but I’m honestly trying to look out for us and our client, (cont)
