I was supposed to go out of town this weekend but I’ve been up most of the night because I’m sick 🙄🥺 Now I just feel sad and bored, so much for celebrating on being vaccinated 🥲
How are others handling moving office home when you are in your late 60s? I am re-Vising my practice from trial practice to probate and estate planning with some PI. No one wants to buy any of the textbooks or other trial books or medical books I have. For those of you who also are changing their practice, how dealing with the expense of practice stuff you bought but no one wants anymore? My binders were dropped off at eight at an elementary school. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
When did you start introducing solids? Paediatrician said today we should start at 5-5.5 months. This feels early and there is no medical reason.
I have a pre employment medical screening at Shell. I mentioned on the form that I suffer from depression and am taking SSRI for it. Do you think this could be a valid reason to fail the screening?
Has anyone taken disability leave, and then used it to look for jobs? How does this work legally?
Does anyone else feel like this job is turning their brain to complete mush or should I seek medical advice? 😅 I feel like my memory is 0 and my day to day work doesn’t really involve much critical thinking or problem solving. Suggestions?
So I’m very sick and someone on fb reached out to see if I needed medicine but when he realized I was a woman he left the chat. There’s that brotherhood.
Can you quit your job while on short term disability? Will you get penalized somehow? Going on maternity leave (which is just short term disability) and planning my options out.
Are there any disability insurance companies who would take a bipolar client? Please help!
Director put me on a project and claimed this is my test to see if I'm ready for the next step? Ill be managing more junior staff. I wasn't promoted in the last cycle, so why the test now?
What is your opinion on a school administrator who tells other staff members personal medical information about why a teacher is in FMLA?? What would you do?
I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.
Breakthrough thought: instead of lying and saying your sick, take a sick day for mental health reasons. 99% you need it
HR keeps trying to paper me up with speed to output crap because they think I’m sick, but the reality is that I’m terminal and probably won’t be around to see the end of this. God I hope they don’t pretend to put up a caring memorial when I’m gone.
Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
Situation : A sped student has an accomodation in their IEP to ride the SPED bus. However, the student and his brother have been refusing to get on the bus and get violent towards anybody trying to put them on the bus. They hit kick and spit on the driver and the assistant when getting strapped into the bus. According to the student handbook they should be suspended because of their actions. Question: should the students be suspended or does their legal accomodation supercede district policy.
Any Bain personnel out there open to reviewing my resume and connecting for a potential referral please. Thanks in advance!

What’s the rule set on doing cases during the interview process on a work computer? E.g. a case requiring me to do some excel modeling and then a deck on it to present. Is this problematic if I create this from my work laptop and send it to them from my work laptop?
What do you guys do when you’re feeling extremely burnt out from work? Been working crazy hours and projects have been bumpy. Could really use a break but got no more vacation days left...
Recently just swapped big4’s mainly for money / focus on work. Would it be career suicide to move to Arthur D Little (HCLS strategy), for another 40% raise..? Trying to talk myself out of it but the work, team, and comp seem appealing
I got fired from Facebook in 2013 and then got a better job at Google (five years now). I want to go back to Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd consider me again, or if it's even less likely.
High perf M1 at Big4 in comm. and received Associate offer from MBB. Pay bump is somewhat ok and I get to work on something cooler but feels like a step back in career. Feeling conflicted. Thoughts?

Need genuine advice. Been planning to move abroad permanently for quite some time but due to pandemic situation, all plans were put to rest. I am having FOMO seeing others still trying to get things done by the way of finding jobs and applying for them. Should I apply too? Not sure how employers are acting towards foreign workers atm.
