Is BDO next in the layoffs?
I got an offer to work at a Gensler office, but something has come up and need to move/work in a different city. Can I ask them to transfer me before I accept the offer? Will they do this if there is the same role currently open in the new city?
Purchased a new property in NJ. Is it better to sell or rent my current condo in NJ in this market?
Are there any CA family law firms looking to contract out work (legal research, drafting briefs, disclosures, forms, discovery, etc.)? I have over 6 years of experience and am well-versed in family code and case law. (My attorney is on family leave so we don't have the workload I'm used to right now, and my husband might be switching jobs with a pay cut, so it wouldn't hurt to earn some extra money.)
Got the “hiring freeze” email for a job i really wanted and I had gotten good feedback on from hiring managed. They were very transparent so I don’t think it was just an excuse.
Still FUCKING SUCKS though since it’s not even in my control. Agghhh. Searching for a new job blows.
I’m a freelance AD (CD level) looking to update my bio. Does anyone have examples of simple, well executed, short bios or just reccos on how to write one 🙏🏼

I've managed to save quite a bit during the pandemic since I've lived at home. I've paid off most of my debt, and am fortunate to have a lot of cash saved up that I want to do something with. If you were in this situation, how would you invest your money or what would you do with it?

Feeling like my life is racing by being on the road 20 years, and saddens me that when I get home tonight my SO leaves on a business trip.

53 here and thinking about the future - looking at a major decision point at 60 and then seeing where I am at that point. Opinions and plans on transitioning to “the next phase”?
Anyone else have trouble separating who you are from what you do? I think a lot of our generation built our self identity around our work. If I take my work away, I'm not really sure who I am.
At what point does it not make sense to buy/ build a bigger home? My husband dislikes our house immensely (was his with former wife) and wants to move. Only owes $180k on it, we’ve been together 6 years and thus I’d rather just remodel. It’s the only thing we disagree about - moving or staying. He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.
Any male 🐟 that can share the experience of starting alpha blockers? I take it at bedtime and feel like I have a head cold in the morning. Dizzy all day too.
Has anyone here ever tried negotiating “at will” employment terms in the US? I’m curious what specific terms folks have asked for and how the potential employer reacted.
Listening to my juniors today sounded like this.
My observation is that it is hard for consulting partners to land the quality public or private board roles everyone naturally targets.
