I work for the US’ largest concierge healthcare company and although Covid-19 has been devastating for so many, our company constantly raves about our (recent) success and how business is booming. They have given no additional bonuses or raises to employees. My new direct report was just hired 4 weeks ago and has a large salary than I do. What’s the best way to address this was my manager as the frustration is next level and with inflation the way it is I am now struggling to get by.
I am 4 months pregnant and jus treated positive for covid. I am so scared and nervous but all the research seems to be all over the place and my doctors seem calm. But has anyone experienced this or any guidance available to share? Thank you
COVID policy for interns. How are you handling? Paid time off? Case-by-case? Are you sharing a specific policy (yes, I know it differs state-to-state)?
You know I thought the day that Covid-19 wasn’t the top news story would mean the world finally healed.... boy was I wrong... I hope everyone is ok during this awful year
On today’s steerco agenda: COVID-19
I am a 17 year seasoned outpatient PT in Tampa FL who is the current head PT for my clinic. I do marketing, admin duties as well as staffing. I haven’t gotten a base hourly salary raise in 8 years! (I do get a percentage of profits but due to Covid, haven’t gotten one in 2 yrs). I do not get 401k, con Ed or health insurance benefits.
Current salary is $85K. I am getting very frustrated that this has not increased even after asking. Thoughts? What to do? What do other seasoned FL PTs make?
A must read. I feel this article in my bones: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/04/parenting/covid-pandemic-mothers-primal-scream.html
Starting at McK (NA) next month and my training just moved from in-person to virtual - are you all seeing a decline in business travel because of covid concerns? I'd heard that a lot of teams had started to travel over the past few months
Do you think the economy is going to be bad in America for a while? I sort of feel like the down-sides from Covid haven't affected highly educated tech workers.
Just read an article about how the first doses of the vaccine will be doled out. Am I the only one who is really heartened by the global response to COVID-19? Sure, the US and other countries led by conservative despots bungled it, but, on the whole humanity came together, wore masks, hunkered down, made a vaccine in record time. These actions were largely motivated by fear but also compassion for vulnerable people. I mean, we did it y’all!
I just learned that $my_western_European_city has just started rolling out the covid vaccination. Although I’d imagine it’ll be a couple more months before I can get it, I’m cautiously optimistic about the future. I seriously cannot wait to get back in the air, on expense accounts, and back yelling at clients again :D
Got put on a new birth control pill (Loestrin FE 1/20) last month for PCOS & bc cysts were still enlarging on another pill (1yr). Feel like my mood improved a lil (not as sluggish/stoic) however, I've gained 8lbs the last month — the fastest I've ever put on weight & the heaviest I've been in my life! 😔 (I used to fluctuate between 129-132 pre-covid for the last decade).
Don't want to blame the pill, but can it be why? Told me to follow-up 3mths after the new pill (Sept), but seems too far
Hey all! I want to learn swimming. Assuming it will only happen in the post covid era. Has anyone else had experience learning swimming in the city as an adult?

Lateral SM offer into EY FSO tech, no salary increase or joining bonus. Base 220s. How does it sound, EY fishes esp FSO ones? Felt I lowballed myself, but offer was during COVID times. Seems that recent offers are much much stronger, anybody got exp with renegotiating and how it went? I do have a counter and other offers.
Anyone have good alternatives to the integer card game for 7th grade? With Covid I don't think I can use the cards
Been crying on and off all day. It's been a rough year. Just hit the one year mark of my dog's death. Coming up on the one year anniversary of my stepdad's death. We just found out my aunt has about six months to live. Childcare is shut down due to a positive COVID case. Just struggling trying to bill my hours. I rescued a puppy Sunday night. I haven't felt that happy in so long. This morning, I rushed her to the emergency vet. She has parvo. I am not sure if I can handle it if she dies.
I’m a solo appellate attorney doing almost exclusively court-appointed work. Work is starting to dry up fast because of Covid. I’m 14 years into my career and I don’t have any other experience other than appellate work in one jurisdiction. Any ideas of a different practice area where my skills could translate?
I’ve also applied to firms but concerned that they don’t want to hire someone who spent the last decade as a solo. Thoughts?
What kind of back-up childcare options does your firm provide? Any details would be appreciated! My firm offers none and I want to build a case for it. Thank you so much in advance!

Any advice for dealing with a client who is chronically late to calls or blows them off entirely? I don’t even get a courtesy note about running late or having something come up. I’m getting annoyed with wasting my time prepping for calls that don’t happen and waiting on the conference line when there are other things I could be doing instead.
Can we resign and take resignation back at the last moment in LTI ? The reason for this drama is to get a good project & good technical work. I have been made a team lead with minimal technical work and lot of reporting so want to resign and take back so that I get some good technical work .

Ollie welcomed home a new sister named Cinderella! She’s a light brown tabby and supposedly very affectionate. She’s taking her time coming out and that’s ok. She at least seems to tolerate Ollie which i consider a win. Pardon the photo, Cinder’s color is really unique and the photo doesn’t do her justice.

I've been seeing a lot of ADCOLOR posts on linkedin, and some of the people who are liking and reposting it are some of the same people who were blatantly racist and rude to me when I worked with them. I wish there was something I could say/do about it, but it's literally making my blood boil seeing them like posts about "uplifting" and "supporting" BIPOC, only because I know that once they get off their screens and they're the meanest people

Yes, I have been getting shady looks and also people keep their distance more than others. I have been wearing mask, sunglasses and hat so that they can't recognize my ethnicity.
Doesn't that kinda make you look like a cartoony bank robber?
Yes. Including my friends :)
I've been getting some shady looks at the grocery store, so I've moved to having everything delivered.
