If you have Win7 or later, the default anti virus does a great job. I used to be in the camp of finding the best anti virus, but not anymore. I wouldn't be too concerned in all honesty

The free one or do you pay?

AVG

@C1: I agree; however, my free default antivirus (McAfee) has expired and I need to buy to renew. @E1: Free or paid?

Thanks!

I use Sophos Home

Malwarebytes....not an av but still good

Can the hybrid model actually work?

People have gotten so used to just backing meetings up into each other. You logout of one and immediately jump in to another. I remember days full of meetings before but not at this volume.

I struggle believing this practice will cease with any percentage of the workforce at home. I don't subscribe to all or nothing but I'm interested in if this has been addressed. Has anyone's hybrid policy mentioned the future of meeting best practice?

I have cleared the interview for a Software Engineer at JP Morgan. Wanted to know about the work life balance and learning opportunities. How is the work? Do people help each other? Is the workload too much?
All answers would be appreciated!

Need advice. Preface: I do like the people I work for and with a lot.

There are basically two factions in my office. I get the majority of my work from group 1, and some work from group 2. Both groups give me very involved/intense work required cases. For a variety of reasons, people have either left or been asked to leave in last year increasing my workload because I have been able to at least stay afloat. However, I am starting to get worried I will miss something big and they continued below

Hey all, besides Acorn, does anyone else use an app that rounds up purchases and deposits in an account?

I’ve really resisted going the big tech route because I really enjoy the speed and responsibilities of startup life, but I’m in my mid thirties and can’t seem to justify leaving that much money on the table by not doing FAANG or a large tech company (not to say I’d be a shoo in for a job). Such a huge difference between $200k with promise of an exit vs $400k in almost guaranteed comp. Does anyone else not want to do big tech? What’s your reason(s)?

AlixPartners fishes need some guidance ! I went through the recruiting process for the digital practice earlier this year. Over 9 interviews/ discussion/ tests etc. the feedback was good but was not offered a job due to COVID uncertainties. Recruiter said the firm is interested in hiring me when things pickup.I recently sent a note to the recruiter asking if she has any updates, she said no new updates at this time. Last Friday I saw 3 new opening for the same role, what should I make of this !
