Can I do a COVID-19 related distribution from my 401k and then do a back door Roth Conversion? The COVID-19 distribution eliminates the 10% penalty and allows the tax liability to be spread over 3 years
Has your firm gone to remote work because of COVID-19? Our national firm hasn’t even addressed it yet - even though our office is located in an area where all schools have closed for 3 weeks.
I think loneliness has got to be one of the biggest scourges that my geriatric patients encounter, particularly during COVID
My son finished his first year of college and transitioned to community college as covid19 rose up. He learned to code in python during this pandemic from university of YouTube and has already started to create a shoe shopping app! He LOVES to code and wants to learn more. He doesn’t love taking philosophy or physics in college. He can spend hours coding Looking for guidance. Continue down traditional 4 year degree route, computer/data science. Or do an intense coding boot camp-remotely
I have encountered a couple of racist clients this year. Is this because of remote work? The incidence of racial bias seems to be higher.
I feel like it’d be irresponsible to travel right now because of covid, but I’ve already booked a trip to Paris. We leave next week and I feel conflicted. 🥴
I am considering a career change from BigLaw to a claims specialist position with an insurance career, as I have tweens at home and can’t be forever running to court appearances and depositions post-COVID. Is this a career-killing move (i.e. I’ll never be able to practice law again, either for a firm or in-house)? What about my colleagues with whom I am working on cases at my firm? Do I leave them to handle those cases without me for the sake of attaining work-life balance in my own life?
Is anyone out there actually a Biden for president supporter? Don't care if he's "better than trump" or "safer than Bernie" or "best chance to win". Does anyone actually like his personality, policies, etc?
I need my consultants to travel. The work is in supply chain distribution and needs to be onsite with the team and end users. I am rolling off consultants who won’t travel. I don’t want people to get sick but work needs to get done. Yes everyone will be following all COVID protocols and following best practices. Thoughts?
Despite being fully vaxxed and not immunocompromised, my spouse is terrified and paralyzed by COVID. She won’t leave the house and we regularly fight about her March 2020 style lockdowns on our family (bleaching mail and groceries etc). I’m concerned because she’s been getting dark hints from work that it’s going to affect her career (she works in sales). Her take is “If they fire me because I won’t see customers, my safety is more important.” Really at my wits end and don’t know what to do.
Is anybody a really giant Olympics fan/watcher? Anyone you know? I feel like theres been a tipping point (esp with covid) and people in general dont care much. My watching plan is a polite no thank you, but are there any hardcore people that see it as uplifting to humanity or whatever?
Pre-COVID, or even now, which agencies did you consider to have good reputations/be going places? Where would you want to work?
Went in for semen analysis today and the waiting room was all ladies. Boy was I glad I could hide my embarrassment behind the COVID mask and a baseball cap.
anyone know of any local / virtual ways to adopt a family for Xmas? Usually do through church, work etc but looking for a virtual option. Would love to help some families out impacted by covid
I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
With school starting up again and Covid cases surging, how is your school handling it? Are you starting remote or in-person? Are teachers in your school calling out sick in large numbers? Are you nervous about going back? Do you feel supported? What are your concerns with Covid as you step back into the classroom?
Given how well the stock market did, despite covid.. does it make sense to use margin that the brokerage lends to you? Why/why not?
Getting this off my chest!

Where is a new build???
I had a case today where the patient was getting penis revascularization surgery because he had ED from an injury to his penis during a previous hip surgery. Positioning during surgery is important.
What's the longest period of time you have had to wait to get credentialed before starting a new position?
Worst onsite consulting locations? Mine was San Antonio... I have a tough time finding good eats in the area.🍗🍣🍔
When you realize half this job is swatting sh.. out of the way so you can focus on the stuff that actually moves the needle for the client.
What's up with United's creeping wifi? Google's building self-flying planes, why don't they start by hooking us up with some global bandwidth?
First it was Deloitte then Accenture and now KPMG will KILL Performance Ratings. They're super subjective so I'm a fan of the move. How has it worked out for you guys?
When you think to yourself, "this deck may come in handy when I become an independent consultant"
Anyone else tired of hearing the word "POLITICS" in any work discussion? Fuck politics. I do my own thang
Client used the word "paradigm" 8x and "skin the cat" 3x during a 30 minute conference call
I owe a lot of my career to the PPD on my project, but she's making me eat hours like CRAY. Worry that stirring the pot will ruin the relationship, honestly is it worth it to nurture the relationship?
