Principal 1 - they fired associates and consultants too. Called it performance related, but it’s the only time I’ve seen many people fired for performance at the same time…

Yes, I am interviewing there too.

The week of my wedding, my husband (PL SQL Developer 4 yoe) was laid off. That was a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I'm still bringing money in as a software engineer, but I'm looking for advice on how to support a partner who has been laid off. Ultimately I think we will be ok, but I know he's hurting / stressed / and could use a supportive partner.

Question: can an employer legally withhold your personal possessions after you leave the firm? I left my old firm recently and they were not happy about me joining another consultancy. They are withholding any belongings that I left in the office and have ignored my emails asking to arrange a pick up or delivery of my personal items. I understand the covid19 environment impacts the situation, but anything I can do to get my stuff back? Any help would be appreciated. I’m based in NYC!

Is going to Milestones worth it? I’ve been for other promotions and wondering how this is different. Not sure I want to mingle with such a huge group of travelers in a COVID world, and have to figure out childcare if I bring my spouse. What did others with kids do?

Today’s thought: we have the government we deserve. Our elected leaders are elected relatively democratically in a very transparent way. For those of us who think our response to the virus has been a disaster, it’s because our pre-COVID priorities were (and still are) a disaster. If people stopped complaining about our leadership and started taking one positive action at a time, we’d be better off.

Hi ladies! There has been a nerve-wracking amount of restructure going on in my company, and I have a bad gut feeling about an impending layoff.

Mandated COVID vaccines. What are your thoughts? Now that they have full FDA approval, why do you think so many are against it? Or why are you personally against it? Kids are required to have certain vaccines to attend school, many colleges require students to have vaccines too, and healthcare workers have been required to take certain vaccines for many years. Yet many people are reacting like vaccine requirements are a ‘new’ thing. I still haven’t gotten my 3rd jab, but would if required… 🤔
