Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?

I wanted to be supportive CHAZ/CHOP here in Seattle but I can’t be anymore. This is no longer a BLM movement protest (which I fully support & protest with) but instead is true anarchy. 1 dead & 1 injured (critical condition) this weekend and tonight over 24 shots fired already tonight in the area. When I first went down to this area last week I felt safe, today I went down there & was scared out of my mind. Seattle get your sh*t together.

Has anyone been in a situation (apartment / condo) where they had a shared wall with a smoking permitted-unit where there was a regular smoker - did anyone speak to your doctor / receive medical advice about whether the secondhand smoke exposure would be enough to potentially cause medical issues? In this case, there would be a shared wall but not a shared ventilation system - slightly concerned about the smell but mostly concerned about medical issues given the carcinogens in cig smoke
