MS has initiated BGV process but in the BGV form they have asked for my manager's contact details. Just wanted to know if my manager will be contacted in any case or it's just a formality cause if he will be contacted I will have to give him a heads-up since my manager has been hostile since I have put in my papers.
Also what information is asked if they end up contacting the manager?

I had an interview w Salesforce a couple months ago. I didn’t do very well with the technical skills test. I was super nervous and quite frankly I was having a hard time with my logical functions. I have since done several classes online and have been promoted with my current company. Does anyone know if I could reapply ? Does Salesforce have any guidelines for reconsidering candidates? Thanks for any input.

I feel that I need to brake with my brother. He’s a conspiracy theorist (believes that vaccines kill people, chemtrails poison societies, new world order, etc.) and he almost died due to a pneumonia recently (yes, he got Covid ofc).
I’m torn - he’s still my brother but my mental health suffers a lot. I tried talking to him, he gets defensive and accuses me of not respecting his opinion.
What can I do? I want to care but I just can’t anymore.
Help: I work with a junior who seems to be a little overeager. I’ll assign work to her and tell her she can take her time and/or my (internal) deadline is next week, and she’ll stay up until 2AM the same day to finish non-urgent tasks. I’m seriously unimpressed because 1) I think work product would be better if she took her time to review it and 2) she’s intentionally ignoring my instructions.
Here's a realization I had recently - Even though I am a teacher, I still see myself as a student and a lifelong learner.
I am into java full stack development with 4 yoe.
I have two options
Accenture with 11.8 fixed + 20% variable. (Has joining bonus)
Amadeus with 16 fixed.
I am more concerned about the technology (angular,java,cloud), learning and job security.
I am confused between them. Please suggest. TIA.
Hi ladies, I am nearly at the point where I want to start having kids. However, I have made a career change somewhat recently (about 1.5 years ago) so I am not really experienced in the tech industry. Would having kids be detrimental at this point in my career (is it always detrimental)? Has anyone had experience of having a big career in Tech and being a mum? Any tips or advice?
Note: I do have a very supportive husband but his work is not very flexible necessarily.

Is there any research saying young kids aren’t major covid asymptomatic spreaders? As more businesses open up, more kids are in day care. Young adults (millennials) are parents of kids. Kids are at family events and bbqs, but not at protests. Kids put things in their mouth and touch and jump on everything, very unaware. It seems convincing.

I find myself working 11-12 hours a day and trying to log it at the end of the day. Feeling like I’m very inefficient and I shouldn’t bill all hours I worked and should water it down to less? Anyone else having this issue? Tips??
I know it’s none of my business and I’m an inexperienced 20-something, but my apartment neighbors’ toddler screams bloody murder at all hours of the day. Is this a common thing for toddlers to screech like this kid? If so, I feel for all the parents out there with little ones.

Looking for a treadmill for a standing desk. But also want one that I can run on. I would like walking distances to go up to 4-4.5 and running up to 8-9 mph. Would be great to have one of those that the rail and be moved and the treadmill placed under the desk for walking. Incline would be great. Any suggestions or is it technically not feasible to have all of this in one machine?

Employer is trying to force me (disabled using a walker and immunocompromised) to return to work at the office after WFH efficiently (covering 2 roles!) For 2 years. I actually can't even do my job from the office. Office isn't ADA compliant and my walker doesn't fit. Some employees aren't vaxxed and mask mandates are being removed. I've been fighting this order loudly. And now I have to meet with the CEO, HR and my supervisor. Wish I could leave, but I don't have a new job lined up.
