Overnight flight delay on American due to defect. I paid 300 for a hotel room expecting American to reimburse. They are offering 20k, 200 voucher, & $120 check. AA is refusing to reimburse full 300.
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
Fishes two questions, what will be senior associate salary at Strategy&, glassdoor suggests 54k, is that correct or higher in cases? Also, what would be the average room rent (1shared room in a flat) near SE1 or within 30-45mins of travel time? Relocating from EU and not sure if it makes any financial sense.
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?
FTM and first one in my friend’s circle to have a baby. Feeling pretty lost on when to do what. Like when do I sign up for a Lamaze class, and do I even need it. What other classes I need? And is my obgyn going to tell me when to start with the perineal massage. I am not even sure how I know of these terms but what if there is something out there I could do or I need to do and I don’t know about it.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
How does someone ask to be rolled off a project and what are ways to provide feedback to their experience even if it’s negative?
I currently live in NY and work for Amazon. I get paid weekly. I make about $910 a week. Here’s my check breakdown. I just feel as tho taxes are too much. $300 a week?! Is this really right? Or is there something I can do? My tax returns is usually just 3k. I also feel like that’s wrong. I really want to up my 401k distribution but idk. BG : Single , no kids.
Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
I have been searching for job from quite a long time and all I have seeing HR/Panels asking for 1. Number of implementation projects done. 2. Work experience on S4 Hana. And if I don't have atleast any one of these, I will not be considered. Is it really that important ? Being joined as a fresher - Is it really something that I can decide whether to be in support or implementation project ? Is upgrading of ECC to S4 Hana in my hands ? And the difference is really that vast ?
Has anyone at Ropes and Gray missed a time entry deadline and get their bonus reduced because of it? I've definately missed some time entry deadlines this year, and I'm concerned that they'll reduce my bonus. I've missed it in other years and mg bonus was not reduced.
I think the stock market is going to crash any day. Should I have my 401k and index funds moved from high risk to low risk allocations or should I just ride the crash and not time the market?
Anyone in big 4 considering making a switch at this point? I want to quit my job every day but the uncertainty due to covid keeps me from doing it.
In a rapidly growing practice, and perhaps 2 years from (non-equity) “partnership”. I like my team and the work I do, but I’ve only ever been a consultant and am tempted to jump to industry to try it out. Interviewing for a Fortune 20 company and applying to others. Maybe FAANG. Let’s say I’m 60% driven by comp, 40% driven by impact. Am I crazy for looking to leave? Should I just continue to ride this one-way train?
Anyone go through intense anxiety (shaking legs, sweaty palms)? I’ve been facing that for two years and feel intense pressure of smallest of tasks and lack of self worth about not getting a promotion
Not a points question, but what are some top resorts in the South? Need to find someplace to get away with the Mrs (sans kids) for a few nights when this all blows over.
Small firm reached out to coordinate a potential part time or per diem role and they wanted to coordinate an in person interview about a week and a half ago noting that it's phase 2 and they are in office...would have been a 40 min subway right and then no clue if masks would have been honored. Was it wrong to say Sorry don't feel comfortable?
There is an echo when I speak on calls due to my home office being relatively empty. I added a carpet but hasn’t made as big an impact as I would like. Any tips
Has anybody worked with HRBPs on HR-related issues/mediation/etc within a team? Can you share what role they play and how? Thank you 🙏

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
What tech you would recommend for WFH. For me it is a second 4k monitor, extra wireless keyboard and a Busy light so that I dont get bothered when on calls/mettings (Embrava Blynclight)
