I can’t believe you had to bring it up! Colgate. Fu*k man, that’s not cool. When I was a young, innocent intern Colgate touched me where I pee. Not good memories. 🍆😢

Good one!

Don't know much other than their line of frozen dinners was an unmitigated disaster. Great example of when to use a different brand (like they do now). I'll never get over the bizarre association of mint toothpaste and frozen beef lasagna.

My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work? I’m leaving to do the same type of work, but at a firm that I worked for in law school and that I know has a much better culture. My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?

My worry is if I make this type of move, a paycut will always have to follow. Has anyone else felt this and can offer some advice?

Did your salary freeze when you went on mat leave? (I.e. if you got a raise/promotion while on mat leave, it’s not effective until after you come back to work). I heard this has to do with short-term-disability insurance companies. They only pay your salary/rate at the time you start leave. But I feel like the employer should make up for the difference. I mean, why do you have to be paid less just because you are on mat leave. Thoughts?
