Has anyone injured themselves on a business trip? Did you ask your firm to assist with medical expenses?
How do our salaries compete with medical professionals? Obviously not doctors but pharmacists, dentists, optometrists etc.
I am sick of firm reputation polls on FB.
When your team is so sick of eating at fancy restaurants that you have team dinners at Chipotle. Closest thing to home food when on the road
We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)
How hard is it to transition from medical device (e.g., neuromodulation) to pharma/biotech?
Does industry usually drug test for marijuana? In a medical state w/ a script from a doc. If so, do I just bring my prescription with me as if it were Xanax/adderal/ etc?

All creatives are lazy and hide under the notion that “it’s okay we’re creative and that’s just how we work.” Step up. Be professional. Hit your deadlines. Work collaboratively. I’m so sick of the whining about planners, clients, budgets. Do your job. You want to go paint then go paint.
About to get an offer to move to a health agency. Anyone else make that move? How was it? I’ve lost major interest in the hustle glorified at traditional agencies, and have a fam so need better WLB. Realizing regular agencies aren’t made to work around family life…more like the other way around. Even when setting boundaries you get comments and pressure…working til midnight every night to “make up” for having to log off between 6 and 9 every night isn’t a good balance for me.
What’s your next move, if any? I had three interviews at the end of August (obtained outside of their normal recruiting process) with an AmLaw 100 firm for an associate job. The managing partner was up front with me that they are trying to gauge needs and that they need a month or two for something else to shake out. This was not a clear blowoff, in context. How/when do I show continued interest/remind them I exist politely/avoid hurting my odds? Assume I’m not delusional.

Got rejected in technical round for networking profile. Did a lot of hard work to crack interview. But didn't make it. Feeling frustrated. Persons with least knowledge got the job a year before, now gained good experience by working on technologies say that you will be rejected if they refer me to their organization. So frustrated I am.
