Do you ladies wear makeup at work? I was in a rush today and went into the office bare face and one of my male colleagues asked if I was sick. Great now I feel even more self-conscious at work!

No matter how little time I have, I try to at least get rid of the circles around my eyes with concealer. Also got eyelash extensions and they’re a lifesaver. (And they’re subtle, one colleague said my mascara was always perfect)

When I was grinding 100 hour weeks for 9 months I didn’t bother to do my hair or makeup - I’m here to earn my keep by doing good work not by having great hair. Now that we’re less busy I try a little more.

I never wear makeup to work

I do wear makeup to work more often than not, but the other women on my floor exclusively do not. Do what makes you comfortable! You’re not there to look pretty, if the men are valued for their work only then we should be too

Sitting in traffic in an uber to airport and he keeps jacking on the brakes and gas back and forth to weave through cars and it's making me so so sick. I hate being that person but I'm very close to having to say something. This nausea is unreal and we still have 25 minutes to go.

Need HR advice. I have some mental health issues that are preventing me working at the moment. I plan on taking medical leave soon. I returned to work today and I am already having severe anxiety. Can my lead ask for medical records or doc’s notes if they find out I will be going on sick leave again? For what it’s worth, I have been on sick leave on and off for 2 weeks now.

Hi Ladies! I’m a sales rep for a private duty non-medical Homecare agency and when making cold visits at hospitals or clinics to introduce myself I’m often not allowed in. It seems that due to covid they aren’t allowing un-scheduled visits and since I’m new to the area I don’t really know anyone. Anyone experiencing similar challenges? What other ways can I get my foot in the door and meet the key players to begin to establish those relationships?

Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

Why are law firms utterly uninterested in seeking or receiving feedback from associates about how the firm (doesn’t) functions or is(n’t well) managed? Why is it always an exclusively one way street with the evaluations? Even when the firm is hemorrhaging lawyers. I mean this in all seriousness. I don’t get it. Of course, management doesn’t have to agree with all or even most of what the associates may say, but some insights could really strengthen the firm, and even make it more profitable.
