I am project manager in clinical research industry (CRO). After earning PhD, I gave up my science dream to take a more stable job. After slowly climbing the ladders, I feel like I finally got a seat at the table. Half the days I like the hustle, but now I miss being creative. I want to take more brainstorming, decision making responsibilities but I don’t see that in the career path for PM. Career path usually goes like this- Sr PM, Director l, Sr Director, and so on. But all do same work.

When do you expect us to be back to the office? I am in Florida. I know that the plan is to stay home until mid-July, then starts soft reopening, but since audit is non-essential, So maybe Sep/Oct?


Been out of town in quarantine for 9 days - I can go back home tomorrow since I’ve tested negative twice consecutively.

I haven’t seen my boyfriend in two weeks, I was supposed to go home last weekend to end things with him. I don’t think quarantine has changed my mind but now since it’s been a couple weeks since I’ve seen him, I feel like I’m being inconsiderate 🥺 I just feel heartbroken but I know I need to do what’s best for me
