Few things unite paid social peeps like the fresh hell that is Sprinklr. I no longer work with it on a regular basis, but every once in a while I shudder remembering the rage I felt trying to bulk build ads or pull reporting in the dashboard, especially on the rare occasions I had to work on weekends. Does anyone use it for paid and actually love it??

Friend works at Accenture. Wants to take a leave of absence and work as a contractor somewhere else. What’s the risks?
It is elementary that the development of a theory is based on completed and finished works or theories with a sufficient basis to be possible. But what were guys like Plato based on? He could only rely on what his mind told him. It must have been very difficult but at the same time, they were very brave in defending their ideas.
Accenture folks in Europe: what is a realistic bonus % that consultants and managers typically achieve in Strategy?
Heard that despite a max threshold of 20% most people achieve something like 5%-10%; is that true?
What does it take to achieve the max %?
Thanks in advance!

Getting financing as an LLC - has anyone met lenders will do lend for less than 40% down and potentially interest only loans ?
I feel like I'm doing everything right, but my research is not getting the attention it deserves.
I've submitted papers to all the right journals, gone to all the right conferences, and published on all the right topics. Yet no one seems to care—no one's citing my work!
How do I get people to pay attention?
Thinking about relocating in a year or two, considering renting out our 55 year old townhouse vs selling. I have some concerns that the bones are pretty mediocre (old plumbing has leaked for me, electrical is aluminum). How would you decide and if renting, how do you budget differently for repairs?
Further context: I already rent out a tiny condo I have by using a property manager, and if I kept this townhouse I'd turn management over to them as well.
Just saw a 1 page article about the Rolex Air King in April’s GQ. Anyone see it? Thoughts on the Air King? Author was super high on it.
I miss pre -covid macking 🥺
(38F). My boyfriend (39M) after 2 years together (long distance but travel to one another and spend time), suddenly told me he wants to try to be a musician again. He did this in his 20s , failed and started his corporate career at 26. He’s a Senior Manager in Fl but i personally feel is underpaid. He was supposed to move in to my place in September and start living together. I initially told him I would support his music on the side while he pursues his corporate career full time. *Cntd below*
Has anyone ever commuted from London to Paris? I heard there is a train? Would you recommend this or no? I’m from US and wondering if this could be an easy commute. Thoughts?

Have you ever worked with a Male coworker who treats you differently to other coworkers? (Cont..)
My accountant set me up as a small business in order to help me write off things as “office expenses”. Just found out this is how I got a hefty return. Is there anything I should be wary of? Im fine with this as long as I won’t get in trouble down the line. He said we could only do this for 1-2 more years (3-4 total) and he confirmed I could write off the costs of a car im planning on leasing soon. Posting here in the hopes that the group will be more helpful than plain judgemental of me :)
Any advice/encouraging words on how to shift my mindset from feeling really sorry for myself after a break up to feeling like it’s his loss and I deserved better? Some days I feel like I’m there and others I feel like there’s no end in sight.
Does anybody feel like they’re the settler in the relationship and their SO is the reacher? How do you deal with these feelings? My friend basically told me last night that she has this opinion, and it’s amplifying my own feelings. My bf and I have been dating for 6 years since the beginning of college. He kind of struggled with the transition to college and didn’t do very well academically for the first few semesters. cont
Looking for suggestions on cheap, effective, nice smelling perfumes/fragrance that I can use when I have a day of errands or just staying at home or going out for a walk with my SO. Don’t want to wear Versace to Trader Joe’s lol.
Hi ladies, do you have an recs for comfortable bar stools for a kitchen island (ideally not too expensive)? Looking for something with a padded seat (not hard plastic/wood/metal) that won’t wear out too quickly. TIA for any specific stores or product recs you can share!
Ok ladies I need your interpretation. a work friend who’s a guy and 6 years older texted me a pic of his rooftop, and I said I’d love to come see it next time I’m in the area. He said “you can do whatever you want as long as it doesn’t become work drama”. Is this shutting me down because he thinks I like him (I don’t like him romantically though), or is this inviting me to do more/flirting? What does this mean?? (More details in comments)
I’m shopping for crop tops for my summer wardrobe. Looking for quality (hopefully will last more than a few washes). Any brand recommendations? 💃🏻

I pitched a story to an editor at the NYT and they said no. That’s all. Just had to confess that in a safe place😂
Last night, we were watching the election with family and my husband could not stop being on his phone. I had a couple drinks and we got into a fight after our family left on how he invited them over and then barely looked up from his phone. He was texting his friends and other family. I just got really annoyed and we’ve increasingly been getting into fights when we drink. Was this argument petty of me? Should I probably stop drinking...
Ladies, what dress socks do you wear with loafers? All of mine are some synthetic blend that make my feet sweaty/gross. The only cotton black dress socks I’ve found are too thick or larger men’s socks

Any words of wisdom for how to tread here...
If I block a user from private chat, can this person ping me again from another thread/bowl? I got nasty messages from a person and I blocked him, but a new private message yesterday came from the same company/role and the location/region matches too. These messages were 2 weeks apart though. Thanks for any insights!
Ladies into jewelry, help please. Looking for a tennis necklace to go with an outfit I’m thinking of putting together for a holiday party coming up. Can’t afford the nice real diamonds but I’m seeing some options online for “graduated” diamonds, lab-grown, etc. in the $300-$500 range, which is doable for me. Any advice on what to go with or what to look for? Also, this would be my first time spending that type of money on jewelry - is it a risk trying to buy it online? TIA
Best black work pumps that are actually comfortable? $0-$700 is budget and not a super low heel but nothing too high or crazy either
Need opinions on this. I’m invited to a bachelorette party in the spring. We’re taking a cruise. The maid of honor is now insistent that everyone pay extra so we can pay for the brides whole trip. It’s not a ton of money across everyone but the principle feels off. In a not cruise bachelorette I wouldn’t hesitate to pay for the bride but paying for a multi day cruise just isn’t rubbing me the right way. This girl is also having a destination wedding. Am I overreacting feeling weird about this?
Any suggestions for good winter gear? Recently moved to an area that gets snow, which I have limited experience with and looking for both casual clothes and work attire.

I perform better when I look and feel my best so I’d say yes
Empirical research I’ve seen says yes. There was a British piece of research saying that you could track declines in a woman’s salary for each additional kg of weight she had on (I think the point was they didn’t see this phenomenon as pronounced for men).
I never wore any makeup till I was 42, tried wearing it for fun during a family wedding and liked the look, started light makeup for the past 2 years, FWIW, I pass on as mid thirty, I do feel fresh longer and more confident in general.
