I work at a boutique that is not very well known, I went on sick leave for personal reasons, which they have been very supportive of. And while on it I received an opportunity to back to a big name I worked for before moving to the boutique. I've only been here for about 7 months. Would it look bad if I agreed to take the offer to boomerang? I'm very confused, everyone I know is saying I shouldn't do it.
Finally emailed HR about potentially taking short-term disability or an LOA. Feeling like shit rn. I'll try to keep this updated regarding the process.
anyone know if diagnosed depression can be considered a short term disability? it's wreaking havoc with everything professionally
Don't you love it when you work for a sick firm and then you find out that Jon Snow dies AGAIN in season 7. Btw spoiler alert! But shit man. Read the books, he dies again for good. Work sucks. Ahhhhh
WHAT’S WORSE? -A pushy director or your producer / spineless creatives afraid to ruffle said director’s feathers? Sick of my team going through the (wrong) motions to appease a tyrannic director
I got a call from my almost 3 year olds school saying that my son has been crying for me a lot. Also at bed time, he begs to sleep with me. Once we get him into his bed, he typically screams I want you mommy for 20 minutes till he falls asleep. This breaks my heart so I’ve been cuddling with him but the problem is that will last till 9pm and I have stuff I need to do. He pretends to be sick to avoid school but tells me he likes school but would rather stay home with me. He goes daily from 830-5
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?
I'm new to the corporate world. I make 55k per year as an EA. House payment 500/mo. All insurance (not including health) $1200 in set monthly expenses, some small random medical bills & a 23k medical bill when my husband had a heart attack & we had no insurance. I max my hsa & 11% goes to my 401k each check. I have 7k in savings. Where do I start? Idk how to invest or how to even begin building wealth in my situation. Can someone please help me? I'm 48yo.

My salary is 92,000 paid bi-weekly, and paycheck deductions amount to 31.7%. 6% is 401k and about 1.4% is medical/dental/vision leaving 24.3% tax rate between state (NJ) and federal. Does this sound right or too high? I don’t claim any exemptions on my w4
I think if someone has served the country, they should be granted Veteran's Day off as a paid holiday. Not forced to use their accrued PTO, or sick day. It's a holiday they earned for the rest of their lives. Call me crazy but this makes sense to me.
Hello all, I am leaving EY on medical ground and asked for a waiver of notice period which got approved. Just wanted to know if my relieving letter will be stating any reason or will it be only the relieving date.
You took away our contribution awards, reduced bonuses, and now you're looking to take away the best medical plan in exchange for a shitty one. "Happy Easter kids"
Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!
I fucked up big time But the reason I ended up fucking up was solely cause I fell sick and ended up going to get surgery. For some reason I don't feel people would be believe me
Got notified that my EAD card is being delivered to my place. Didn’t submit my medical record with I-485 so I’m hoping to receive the RFE for that soon now that EAD is almost here. Has anyone been in the similar situation and did the medical exam before receiving the RFE? Is that allowed? Wanna try to mail out my medical exam as soon as I receive the RFE to cut down time!

Anyone has experience when Hiyamee recruiting service? I got a call for an interview panelist and Rs. 500/ candidate. Interview duration of 40min.

General thoughts on switching from consulting to a pre sales solution consultant role at a SAAS tech company? Has anyone here done that? Tired of being sooo in the details in consulting.
Deloitte's move to disband diversity groups and to focus on giving white men more responsibility and training in reaching out sounds..... ambitious.
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j

It’s weird that a white person continues to ask me, a person of color, to take diversity training, right?
