Anyone know if Auditors are treated as essential worker? I got this document shows the priorities to take the COVID vaccine so I am wondering. I do occasionally go to client sites and inventory counts for essential work...
Covid vaccine eligibility for teachers by state: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLVxzYsBoH9/
Secretly find COVID19 to be a good lesson for someone just starting their career- taught me to save up for a rainy day, cherish everything in life and stop taking “normal” things for granted 🙏
I’ve been in the same city for too long and want to move, but my agency is getting into a hybrid model. I feel like I missed the timeframe to jump cities during covid and need advice on how to navigate the conversation with my manager. Has anyone been able to do this recently without having to get a new job?
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Have any of you had to deal with a friend cheating the system to get the covid vaccine? I’m in a state where they work on an honor system and don’t ask to see your medical records etc. but you sign a statement saying you’re eligible. I want to confront this friend and tell them what they did doesn’t sit right with my values and wondering if anyone has been through a similar experience with a friend or relative?
I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
I need sanity check please. i am 6m pregnant with twins, have a history of miscarriages&specialists urged us to be extremely careful since covid19 can lead to stillbirth. My SO is staying with his parents this week to help with renovation. We agreed they'd follow social distancing rules while SO is living there, but he just told me his parents are spending hours with their friends in closed spaces wearing no masks!Now he has to stay 5 days longer and test prior to coming home. Right to be angry?
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
Very specific question - Canadian and European spouse travelling to Canada from Europe. However, spouse’s ETA not approved. Embassy told us all we need is proof of marriage and my citizenship (CDN passport) to travel. Asked embassy about ETA and they said “we don’t have an answer you should be fine”. Anyone with experience dealing with this during COVID? Should we try and fly?
The number of COVID cases on the rise again, folks. Wear masks and social distance! Here’s hoping the rise in number of cases is just because of increased testing, but the uptick in number of hospitalizations in not good news. This is by no means “disappearing” as the President continues to claim.
Last year I lost a good job to Covid-19, so I had to take a job with the first company that offered me employment. I wanted to make it work but my boss is tyrannical and overbearing. I’m miserable working there. My question is: how I conceal my disgust while working with this person? What techniques can I put in place to handle his micro aggressions, while I find something better? Books, articles, ideas? It might take me a long while to find something else and I need to keep my cool.
Good news for everyone no matter where you are politically: New research indicates COVID immunity could last more than a year, especially after vaccination.
What industries are doing well right now and reps are actually enjoying their day to day? My current role has sucked the life out of me while trying survive Covid and the burnout has reached a new level. I’m actively applying but want to find a good fit I can grow with. Not a fan of company hopping.
It’s my birthday tomorrow so I have been calling my friends to come to the party this weekend (I limited to >10 ppl due to Covid). I was planning to have a lunch drinks/pizza party since I wanted to keep it casual and outdoors, but I have been awestruck because most of them asked about whether they need to chip in for the party food/drinks or if there are hot guys before they said no. I guess I was naive to think they will all say they will come just because it’s my birthday.. kinda sad :(
My husband and I have concert tickets to a big outdoor festival that was cancelled for covid and is now happening in late August. His brothers and some college friends are flying in to stay with us. We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?
Could insurance companies stop covering covid related hospitalization / costs for unvaccinated? Is that legal and would that move the needle on vaccination?
Do any of you do trachs on COVID 19 positive pts? We have several patients that have been on vent for 20 plus days. Are there clinical guidelines around trachs for COVID patients?
Other managers- how many clients are you on right now? Are you doing everything from senior consultant tasks (execution, documenting materials, leading meetings) to manager tasks (review, rework, billing, budgeting, client decks) across all of them? I feel like I’m being taken advantage of because they expect me to cover for everything but I don’t know what other managers are doing. So not sure if this is the norm (I’m a new manager). What’s manager life at other firms?
What is it like to work as a real estate lawyer? I’ve done 4 years of plaintiffs personal injury, I’d like to try something new. Don’t want billable hours. Any thoughts? (Also other types of law suggestions are welcome)
Just received an email the other day giving all staff an OT requirement for June.. kind of hard to get that many billable hours in when none of the work is available 🙄
I've had a junior (by level but not age) client resource that has been rude and disrespectful since the day he joined a couple weeks ago. I finally had enough today and told him off in an email and called him out for his disrespectful tone and language. My director (who was also on the email) sent me a ping saying that I wasn't out of line and that it was warranted and he'll handle any reactions stemming from that exchange. Nice to know that he has my back ...continued
Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?
Fishes, looking for recommendations on growing business development and sales skills. Finding and growing pipelines, establishing marketing materials, closing sales, and similar for services. I have on the job experience within consulting but never any formal training or education. Entering a new role where I'll need to build organizational capabilities from scratch. Any recommendations on programs, certificates, courses, books, or other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
I am not not having the best time. I do not feel interested on my job and find hard to wake up in the morning and do it...or do anything else. It has been a rough year with the pandemic and all. Sometimes I think home office is affecting me too much or May be I am lazy. Or is this depression? Should I see a professional?
I believe MBA has somewhere lost its value. In the age of technology, one should pursue Technology related courses rather than spending a hefty amount on MBA. What's your view on this fishes?
Anyone know what Weil’s average hours are like given that they don’t have billable requirements? A lot of people say big law comparable but I know some people in big law shooting for 2000 and some shooting for 2600 and those are two very different worlds. Was considering applying to a role there but wanted to get a feel for what this really equates to.
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
I’m applying to the pre-MBA MBB programs but am undecided between a non HSW M7 and Tuck with $. Does listing one school over the other have an advantage?
How to make remote desktop dual screen?
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
Had a second interview with the head of the group and after he told me they’re still bringing candidates in for the next couple of weeks and I should stay tuned in. So, what gives? Should I take this as a soft rejection? It is my experience that when a firm wants you they’re more inclined to give definite timelines and not hedge their bets as much…. Am I reading too much into this?
