The manager on my project likes to ask another more junior woman do some "admin" stuff, such as book meetings, take notes, and even book his flight!! I really want to help this junior woman not do the admin stuff that much. What can I do?
Is anyone in general just disappointed with the state of the world with covid? I feel like we’re sorta back to square one and I’ll never get the work travel perks again
Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Is firm travel back up to pre covid levels?
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
Need points help: current Delta gold, only 7000 MQMs from plat for 2017 but current project ends soon and expecting to fly Star Alliance. Should I stop before hitting plat to carry MQMs for 2018?

In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
What is an elite night for Marriott properties?
What are you passionate about? Any tips on how to reflect on that? I feel like I’m spiraling into an identity crisis trying to think of my “story.” My work experience isn’t in any particular industry, and my personal life feels standard to millennials - food, travel, outdoor activities, art/culture
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
Need to get a COVID-19 test for international travel. Anyone knows how soon it can done before travel and any places in Jersey City that do it?
Anyone else constantly checking their airline/hotel/car rental apps thinking their miles/segments/nights/points is going to go up magically? 😭 oh. Just me?
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.

Hey guys! Has anyone made the pivot from Merchandising to Project Management? I’d love to chat as it is something I am looking to do. Thanks! :)
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

Going back to work next week after 4 months of maternity leave and I’m super nervous about it 😔. I’m sure it’ll be fine but I wish that I could stay home a bit longer 😔
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
Has anyone been unjustly rejected by their children due to encouragement by other parent/grandparents/other? It happens usually during separation and divorce but could happen within a marriage. In many extreme cases, the child is prevented from a relationship with a parent due to a being blocked physically and emotionally. I'm currently in a toxic marriage where spouse and MIL badmouth me (among other things) to my 5 yo son to the point where he rejects, badmouths, and even bullies me.

Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?
Those who have switched firms recently: what signing bonus did you negotiate? And for what staff level?
Any thoughts on family law as a practice area? Got offered 110k plus bonuses with low billable hours requirement. I'm in Los Angeles. Not sure if I should get into it as a practice area though as I hear conflicting things. Any thoughts would help. Thanks
I’m a 7th year corporate associate at a V50 and between my wife and I, we have amassed 300k in savings (still paying loans aggressively too but wanted liquidity and room to invest/house payment) and hopefully 400k next year when we plan to buy a home. I am a total novice with personal finance and a bit risk averse and my parents were foreign and didn’t really do the investment stuff. The money is in a regular old savings account but I want to see what’s the best way to maximize that 300k and
