Hi all!!! Another question for dc biomedical folks! My buddy that has a biomedical engineering PhD and a working visa is looking for a job where he could utilize his biomedical skills.

Is it just me but I think ex-[MBB] makes sense and even ex-Deloitte or any of the bigger prominent firms because it actually speaks to an active Alumni group or a profession with a broad skillset. But ex-[Bank] looks a bit strange. Please educate me! Am I being a snob?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
