Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
Where all the 🐠 that were so adamant that covid would disappear once it got warm - come on, don't be a coward and speak up
Live in Jersey City. Drivers license expiring next month. Need to get mine transferred from Mass to NJ before renewal. DMV during COVID is giving out tokens at 5am and folks need to wait for 6-10 hours outside the office apparently. Does anyone know an easier way to do this? Driving schools? Brokers? Thank you!
Trump supporters - if Trump keeps not listening to experts and ignoring the science around coronavirus, at what point does it become his virus?
Universal Orlando trip? I am seeing an uptick in covid cases and articles sayin the area is "crisis mode". We have a group all vaxxed except for 1 -small child and 1 half vaxxed (next shot isnt until we get back). Would you go or is this fear mongering again?
Did anyone that has Covid tell their manager they have Covid? I am about to get tested and can barely breathe I think I need to take a few days off work...
Any mom's here who remember their first trimester? Anything you stopped doing, eating or drinking? Obviously the basics like alcohol, smoking, caffeine, raw seafood, flaxseed, rosemary, etc. Family is very cautious is driving me insane. Between covid restrictions and baby restrictions, I feel like I'm in jail. Suburban cycling ban and all-bran are the latest drama.
Need some insight into menopause. I’ve been living with my family during covid and it’s been very difficult with my mom. She is mostly in a bad mood, constantly picks fights, has mood swings at times, and is miserable. Some of this is due to other issues at home but I’m wondering if it could be hormonal. Is this menopause?
I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….
I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU). I would like to do something to support his wife; they have 2 young kids & she’s expecting; I’m sure the stress on her is exhausting. Any suggestions for what would be helpful and appreciated? This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them
Hi all - I am trying to find 3rd party verification partners who support Covid test checks. Anyone have any information or companies/software that does that?
I just quit watching the Olympics 2day :( I've been following since Athens 2004 and I started liking some not so common sports like fencing and taekwondo (started trying fencing but covid hit, sadly - been out ever since). But I really loved surf, since Kevin Slatter - I never had the talent to it, but still try sometimes LOL. But the match fixing today btw Medina and Igarashi was ABSURD - real shame. What a frustration - took out all my excitement.
I’ve been working hard this year, but I’m concerned I won’t get a promotion at the end of the year due to covid (we’ve had severe pay cuts/furloughs at our company). Any advice?
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
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.)
Are there any other teachers out there who are single and living alone? I was lonely before but covid has made things ten times worse. How do you meet new people?
If you could work remote from anywhere in the US, where would you? (Within reason, of course)
Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
95% +Utilization, got a 4 of 5. (no raise, no bonus). I was benched last year due to awaiting my clearance (missed utilization) and got a 3 of 5 with a raise and bonus.
My friend gave birth 1.5 months early. She kept it on the dl due to some finds in the ultrasound. It’s her first child and he’s in the NICU (developmental issue). I want to send her something but am at a total loss. For any moms here, any ideas? Don’t know if she didn’t disclose earlier because the child’s survival odds are rare (his issue is very rare and there’s not a lot of medical literature on it). TIA
Received my green card few days back :) what is the process of getting the updated SSN card?

Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?
I’m pregnant!? And I’m getting a job offer tomorrow. I need to know a million things like their insurance packages (I really want to keep my Kaiser insurance) and whether they offer paid leave before the one year FMLA mark. What else do I need to know? How do I ask all this stuff? How concerned should I be about disclosing my pregnancy considering I just tested positive, and I barely know these people?
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
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
Looking at my project assignments like...
Switching over to Deloitte. What’s the cell phone purchase/reimbursement policy? Is there a steep discount if you buy it through Deloittes portal?
How to take advantage of per diem budget? eg, Amazon gift cards from Cvs, Starbucks gift cards etc. Also is it allowed and these transactions be tracked by the firm?
