Anyone travelled Swiss airlines to India? Planning to book tickets for parents. Other option is Lufthansa - United combo. Know the latter very well, looking for comparative insights between the two
My mother-in-law passed away 2 weeks ago (not Covid and somewhat unexpected). I work in a small, tight knit group or so I thought. I let them all know through email and got the obligatory "sorry for your loss", but since then we received no other acknowledgement. When other team members had parents pass I've always sent flowers or donated to the cause they requested. This is bothering me more than it probably should. Should I say anything or just let it go?

Quitting Accenture - How long after last day does your health insurance last? My new company’s health insurance starts the month AFTER my first day. So was wondering if there would be a gap in my health insurance.

I just got offered a new job at a large bank. I’ve been wanting to transition from Assurance to financial services, but this new job is for the same pay. The hours would also be much longer, and my travel/living expenses would go up if I were to take it. I’m still interviewing for other positions, but hesitant about missing this offer. Any advice?
I grew up with strict father who doesn’t like getting happy and showing emotions , there are instances I felt this was specifically for women. When I got out of my home around 17 for college I became a very cheerful and excited person for every single thing.

FF 7 years - married and all I hear is sarcastic comments for my emotions. Contd..

Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes. I wonder if I should reach back out or if it's too soon. The news about Skadden's staff layoffs this morning makes me think it's too soon.
