What is your school doing to protect teachers from covid? F2F all year with up to 25 students in a small classroom and teacher and student cases climbing in my building. I feel very vulnerable.
...Thoughts on whether we should adopt China’s methods to keep us safe from another coronavirus outbreak?
Has anybody changed locations from SF or NY to a Lower COL city like Chicago during COVID (specifically in tech) and had their salary adjusted down? If so, how much was the decrease?
Going to grow out my hair super long till end of next year for Covid-19, probably only cutting it after I go back to the office. I reduce risk by not getting a haircut, I get to put it in a bun and keep it away from heat and I'll be donating the 12 inches of growth to cancer wigs. Convinced my hubby to do the same, man bun style. Who's with me?
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
How has your living situation changed because of COVID? I live in DC, but left to stay with my parents in MA. I don’t see any reason to go back - everything is shut down in DC and I’m working remotely. Interested to see whether others have moved because of COVID.
after 2 weeks of self isolating without presenting symptoms, is it safe to say I’m in the clear of COVID or is there still risk?
Is it worth deferring MBA enrollment to next fall (if possible) or starting the application process again in a few months? I’m concerned about the impact of Covid-19 on the b-school experience.
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Cheetoman loooks seriously worn out at his COVID rally inside a NV church. Making trips to defend red states (IA, NC, GA, FL, AZ) and a trip in between to CA to raise cash will do that to anyone.
Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
Anyone mind sharing their average monthly electricity (kWh) usage since covid? I’m in southern CA, 2k sq ft house w/pool, 2 adults working from home (no kids). Summer months are around 1,700 kWh; other 9-10 months average around 400 kWh. We replaced HVAC post-summer and hope to see improvement this summer. Thanks in advance.
Did many firms give raises during covid or have firm addressed upcoming raises/bonuses that may have been forgone? Trying to get a general consensus
Help. Feel like since covid the work is extremely transactional, I’m bored, and all of my coworkers are leaving.
Quick vent: fiancé and I were going to put an offer in on an apartment we loved before all of this Covid stuff happened but changed that plan to rent to buy starting Aug to be safer. The sellers just told us they accepted someone else’s offer to buy. We, especially me, were in love with the apartment but we were too risk adverse to buy now bc if Covid and fiancé working at a startup that had layoffs in the beginning. Just sad bc we’ve been looking for two years and this was the perfect place.
I’m really struggling mentally. The understanding of how insanely busy and overwhelming it will be because of this COVID-19 crap is giving me severe anxiety and panic attacks. I want to leave so badly but no one is hiring right now. I don’t know what to do. I feel trapped with no way out.
Befor Covid, were any of you working moms who had to travel? I’m in audit and I’m so nervous about having kids and having to spend the night away from them when they are little.
