What activities could my parents do with my 3 month old? Background: This is their first grandbaby and the first time that they are meeting her due to COVID. They are coming for two weeks while I transition back to work and are staying in an Airbnb close to our apartment. We live in LA. Just trying to get some ideas! :)
Interviewed with Citi Bank twice, was told to expect a response in the next week or so. It’s been almost two weeks since the last interview, is it reasonable to follow up? Don’t want to come off as demanding or entitled, since I know COVID has everything moving a bit slower. At the same time itching to get out of my current position ASAP
I have an offer to start in a week but I haven't given any notice. I'm worried about making the jump and given the Covid19 I have the opportunity to work both - slight overlap. Should I ride both?
Anyone find their career taking off during COVID? I’ve become a more confident speaker because I’m more comfortable at home and that’s been a huge plus.

I graduated residency 4 years ago, but my becoming a doctor wasn't complete until today- I decided I'm joining a golf club (post-COVID lol)
Just want to say how proud I am of CK for making sure there are multiple places to access hand sanitizer/Clorox wipes and updating us at least once to twice a day about current COVID19 news. 💚
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
How does everyone feel about covid and traveling? Seeing uptrends in the upcoming months.
Who else is shaving their head bald at this time to minimize coronavirus spread? Won’t be client facing for at least a few months, enough time to grow it back!
Looking for advice on dealing with a boss who is extremely difficult to work for. For example, my colleague has worked entirely remotely since COVID hit in March. She had planned to make 2 trips out to her family out of state during the holidays (for Thanksgiving & Christmas) but recently requested to stay during the interim, when it looked like her apartment might be under voluntary evacuation due to wildfires. Said colleague lives alone and found it beneficial to be around family (cont below)
Indian citizen, live in Middle East , didn’t visit India in recent past , fully vaccinated , I learnt that I cannot enter USA on L1 due to covid restrictions . Anyone else in same boat?
What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.
A goal of mine is to leave my PA firm (one of the big 4) this year. Currently in my fourth busy season. Do you think I should wait until getting promoted to senior and leave right after, or leave after this spring busy season? I am not super eager to get a senior position because with Covid and the inevitable learning curve, I don’t feel equipped to accept one. So I was thinking of applying for entry positions. Any advice?
Ask serious questions, fear monger, share hand sanitizer recipes. All things are welcome in the coronavirus bowl

My dad tested positive for covid. We have ICICI Lombard from india insurance for him. I need to take him to hospital for further test as his fever is going up. Anyone had experienced this. How the hospital treat uninsured or people who have foreign insurance.
Does anyone attend church (pre covid) in the city? For a women in her early 30s, can you recommend me a church to attend? It would be nice to have a community. I grew up Presbyterian, so a Presbyterian church would be great, but open to Methodist, baptist church too.
Don’t know if it’s appropriate. So I’m WFH in a flat, new neighbours just moved in and whilst I’m having meetings in the morning, I hear neighbours enjoying their time DAILY (screaming, wall vibrations you know... ). It’s really distracting and embarrassing when I’m working and if my team hears it from their end. Never had this happening before. What to do? Advice please?
It’s my last week, thank god! Never coming back to consulting again. Going to the industry. Look at me, I am the client now!
I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!

When you’re comparing offers how you put a value against benefits like vacation allowance? Just calculate the value of a paid day as a % of base?

Anyone have experience with lasik/smile recently? Would love to hear thoughts and where you went, along with how much time off from work (if any) you needed afterwards!
