2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
Advice question: I am having a home maintenance issue that’s affecting my sleep (something with our pipes or something in the ceiling that’s causing a lot of noise at night, totally sucks). In addition to being a tired monster, I have been watching myself on Zoom and my eyes are super puffy and have giant bags under them. Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏

When placed on a team where work is unevenly done/you have to start picking up the slack, how do you bring that up (nicely) in the team without going to the manager?
We are starting SWE group interview practice from October 25th through 28th November. We did a similar workshop style prep in September and a lot of people joined it. Few things we do as a group 1. Solve problems of most of the topics and patterns 2. You have choice of easy or medium or medium hard problems. 3. Cover topics around system design 4. Discuss problems twice a week on zoom If you are interested signup below https://bit.ly/3ArBxZw
I see tons of posts on here about how travel will not got back to normal and I completely disagree. Leading workshops in person with a white board, easily answering questions from different departments with little coordination (since your onsite don’t always need to plan a meeting), observing workflows in person to understand current state can not and is not getting replaced by zoom. I would say the effective rate is at 80/90% but the cost of travel is well worth the extra 10-20%.
Why does Microsoft Teams cause my MacBook to sound like a helicopter. That thing gets HOT.
A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.
Beyond the obvious, what substitutes for pre-Covid behaviors have you found yourself making in the post-Covid world? (And by obvious I mean please dont say video chat, I loath Zoom at this point).
Hi ladies. I received a speeding ticket over the weekend and assumed if I paid it off, I’d get the deferred adjudication option. However, I just found out I'm not allowed that option because I was 20 miles over the speed limit. Question: Is there a way to determine how it would affect my insurance if I don’t fight the ticket?
For those who have transferred from consulting to tech, what types of roles at these tech companies are consultant skills relevant for? Besides project managers of course …
Has anyone succeeded in securing a role in another country that would be open to connecting? How do you frame to recruiters a career gap to relocate?
I got the verbal offer last week from the recruiter. We talked compensation and location, and said the letter would be ready after meeting with the HC. After reading some of the posts about the HC it makes me believe that the offer is not nearly as guaranteed as communicated. Is there anything I can do on my end now? Is HC difficult to get through/vary by position? I believe I head in there tomorrow.
Currently developing stomach ulcers at my current gig and need to leave. Anyone hiring ADs in NYC or remote?
It feels like this bowl is mostly about jobs, salary etc.. let's change the topic for a bit. For those of you, that have been implementing Workday for a while, have seen the evolution of the UX.. Curious to hear some thoughts/quirks (positive/negative) on the some of the recent changes. I'll go first: The search bar in the middle and the annoying search suggestions/recent searches when navigating between pages, profile, config tasks... What are yours?
Is anyone else having difficulty when teaching pronouns now with non-binary terms? My students insist on the fact that Susan doesn’t have to be she it could be they. Answer key says she. How do we handle this?!?!
Hi Googlers, how long do I have to wait before reapplying ? I recently received a ding from Google after 4 interviews.
Someone in the country is going to say something amazingly stupid and hateful comment regarding Orlando. Let diversity and peace prevail.
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?
How likely are you to get a job you interview for? At B4 they basically gave us offers if we had a pulse, what are the odds for industry jobs?
For those of you, who work for companies that want to return to in-person work from fall, are you planning to change jobs for a full-time/mostly remote option? I feel my company in financial services tech is thinking backwards, and that I need to move asap.
I’ve gotten an RFE sheet request for my H1-B petition. Does this hamper my chances of getting the visa ? Because my degree is directly related to my role and is also clearly mentioned in the job description. So I’m not sure why I’ve gotten this. Anyone have experience with the same ?

I have 50 sick days a year. Been with the company a year and never used one. Today, after letting them know about covid symptoms. I used ONE. Im now being asked to show a positive test. I took a rapid one and it was negative but they said it could be false due to my symptoms and exposure to someone who is positive. I need a new job...
The added pressure of navigating the application/testing process along with general concerns about COVID have been a lot to handle lately. How have you all been dealing with this and managing anxiety?
