Op there’s a COVID timecode so you don’t burn your PTO. Search on DNET. I don’t care how junior you are - you are a human first, and a practitioner second. We basically have no bench, so please don’t worry about being laid off - you need to rest ❤️

Please don’t. Your work will replace you in a heartbeat, but you will not be able to replace your health. You need to look out for yourself and for those who love you, your work won’t. So please take care of your health and make decisions that let you win in the long run

I'd be surprised if there aren't corporate-wide protections for recovery if you have COVID - don't let people bully you about work when you need to focus on getting better.

When I had covid, I told my team. They let me rest up and covered for me when I missed a morning call. Let people know and let yourself recover. Ask for help. People may surprise you with kindness

I was just offered a promotion to Sr Strategy Analyst and I’d like to negotiate the base comp from $109 to $116 at least. I would love to hear how others have navigated this conversation. My points are: 1. I have both supply- and demand- side experience. 2. I have a proven record of dedication to the company w/ examples. (This is a leadership rotational program so it shows I’m invested in the company.) 3. I didn’t rec a raise in 2020 bc Covid so at a normal rate I would be making ...

Remember when Fauci said we didn't need masks then said we did but only N95 masks, but then said any face covering will work. Then said if you're vaccinated you need to double mask. Then said you can single mask. Then said no masks if you're vaccinated. Now the CDC says you need a 3rd vaccine shot to "greatly" prevent delta variant. But no, EVEN if you're vaccinated you can get Covid. Like f off. This is not exact science clearly. I have taken 2 shots but now I refuse to listen to this BS.
