Hey fellow moms, curious to know about any exceptionally good or bad policies from companies to help parents navigate covid, parenting and work. My boss asked me for how we could better support parents as winter approaches and younger kids still can’t get vaccinated. Have any of your companies handled things like quarantining with young kids while still working well?
For those of you who have moved back home(due to COVID or holidays), how has your dating life been impacted?
The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
Hi fishes, are there any us/uk Or other companies that allow work from home from India?? I m looking for QA positions
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
WFH has made it clear how much more work I do than my partner. He heads off to keep his work-life-balance and leaves me to keep everything together.
He doesn’t understand the concept of work from home.
Literally watching leaves grow on the trees outside my apartment. Can not handle this WFH life.
Really want to stay WFH for longer, it’s really worked out well for me. Any ideas what companies could be WFH long term ?
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx
Anyone know how to tell if your employer is using this type of software? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/sep/05/covid-coronavirus-work-home-office-surveillance
Be gentle - I really want to change my lifestyle but don’t know how to start as it all seems so overwhelming. I have so many issues and hurdles to work through and could use some advice on how to start. - I have been skinny and inactive my whole life. I’m in my late 30s and had live handles before Covid but now just have a gross belly and horrible posture - I’ve never developed good eating habits. I eat junk, don’t have regular mealtimes and usually eat one big unhealthy meal as a binge a day
Help! I am 6’1” tall with long legs and long feet .... and it seems like my “go to online store” for tall pants/slacks (32”-34” inseam) as well as shoes (size 14M) has shuttered (Long Tall Sally). I would love any suggestions for either tall clothes and/or shoes. Even a place to buy custom shoes at this point - I am desperate! My slightly too small size 13 Tory Burch sandals are just not going to cut it during the colder months, even given COVID 🤪 Thanks in advance!

Wish the Delta would let you switch flights within the app like United does, instead of calling them. ✈️
Flying EWR-PDX via United on a Weds and PDX-JFK via Delta on a Sun - upgrades are $300 for each. Worth it? Or should I just wait for the possibility of a free upgrade?

I work as a quant/associate at a large (>300 billion aum) long only mutual fund. Ive been here for about a year, but seeing how crazy the job market is, I’m wondering if I should put feelers out again. I like my coworkers and I work good hours. I get 110k as base, and got a 10k sign-on bonus. They said min bonus is 15k, but I’m not sure what the range is as I haven’t been around for a bonus cycle. This in a HCOL city. I also get 30% match in my retirement accounts. I have ~2 YOE. Thoughts?
Eye-opening article about how the current political and social atmosphere is not something acute - it has been brewing for decades.
