Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

Any insight on Hilton’s Legal team (work culture, hours, flexibility, morale, upward mobility, etc.)? Considering making a move. I am very happy at my current company but underpaid (company politics are taking precedent) Seems like a decent opportunity but I am concerned about morale, among other things, given the 2020 Covid layoffs.
Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
“A new study suggests that almost half of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have mild or asymptomatic cases.”
My school now has rapid result Covid tests so we can test the students (with parental consent). I’m wondering how many other schools have the same option.

Brett Favre: “there’s too much uncertainty from the experts and science about the Covid vaccine.” Also Brett Favre:
First there were small groups of humans in caves, then communities formed, then kingdoms, then empires, then countries. Leave aside the impact to globalization due to covid, the future might be contd.
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
to 🐠 with severe anxiety/prone to panic attacks: i need guidance on how to help my loved ones manage through their anxiety. their anxiety is usually triggered by health related situations so COVID-19 has been especially difficult for them. scenarios of them getting triggered include when they’re running, they sometimes get bouts of coughs so then they panic, thinking they can’t breathe. or they accidentally touch harsh chemicals and think they injected toxins. how can i help and be supportive?

United health group Applying for a Sr. Program Manager role, got a request to submit a video interview - is this by default or after initial screening ? Can anyone help me with comp at this level and if they are sponsoring visas at this time?
I see plenty of people go for a walk during the day, yet I hardly see any of my EY teammates appear “away” for 15/20+ minutes. I recognize that not everyone is in consulting, but can’t imagine that *none* of those walking are. Asking as a relative newcomer to the workforce: Is it acceptable to be away from work for more than just a few minutes, regardless of industry? If so, how can I feel comfortable stepping away to prioritize my health and well-being when so few of my teammates do so?
I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
Best design & ad agencies in LA?
Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
When it comes to compensation, do you care more about immediate rewards (e.g., next year's bonus) or your future earning potential?
Are google interview evaluations standardized internationally enough for the advice I get from friends who are googlers in Europe to be relevant for me interviewing for roles in Mountain View? Or do different countries and offices look for different things?
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
When your client understands what you do better than your team lead and asks to extend you and your team lead asks, why are they asking that? First time for everything...
Ladies, I have two partner (final round) interviews next week. One with EY and one with PWC and I am super nervous. I did so well in other rounds and they were all with women. The partners I am speaking to next week are men and I feel like I may be judged based on my looks :( Any guidance will be appreciated
