I’m a new grad seeking validation (or opinions) for my recent job offer choice.
- Age: Early late-twenties.
- First regular job after graduating masters + my formal edu background was in urban planning.
- Chose a hybrid design/prototyping/coding role at a top-notch agency over a frontend developer role at one of the e-commerce giants.
- Would like to work in giant tech companies eventually.
Currently unsure if I want to follow a UX or a frontend.
Anybody know anything about Lerner David for patent pros? Culture, pay, hours etc? Mid level looking to lateral
Oracle pulled a feature without communicating it and retroactively edited the release notes. I keep getting vague ambiguous answers after logging an SR. Has this happened to anyone else?
I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate the idea of America than to be forced to work the July 4th “holiday” weekend. 😡
I know there are a lot of people who are anxious about admissions consultants but let me say, they aren’t necessary.
I got an interview at HBS without one, all I did was send my essays to a few friends who I trust to perform an in-depth review and give feedback.
Much cheaper, and honestly more satisfying.
Admissions consultants work for some people, but lots of people stress out about whether they “need” one-the answer is no.
I have been asked to go on PIP- Performance Improvement Plan. Please suggest what should I do and what does it mean for me as an employee
Folks - what are some of the leading players by IT areas? Please help grow the list. I know that this info is published by Gartner but it is scattered and having opinions of people in field helps.
I’m working from home full time and struggling to figure out what to wear day to day. I’m not in court anymore but have regular zoom calls with co-workers and other attorneys. My non attorney co-workers are SUPER casual. Like wearing sweats. (It’s a legal tech company.) Wtf am I supposed to wear during the day so I look nice and don’t feel like a slob but am not overdressed?! Help plz 🙁 (fyi - 29 f, trying not to look shlumpy but also not too mature)
Consultants - does your partner firm allow you to work on modules you aren't certified in?
Burned out, have stopped caring 😬😬.
Shared this in the main consulting bowl but sharing here as well. Cards Against Humanity had a Black employee committed to a psych ward against his will for speaking up about racism:

Deloitte USI declared that bonus for the year shall be paid on May 31st. If I put down papers on April 15th, my last working will be June 15th and will be on notice period on May 31st. So my question is - will get the bonus amount?

Would you take a VP role at 4 months pregnant? I’m in house at Manager level and been offered VP at a large agency. Nice raise and obviously title will open doors. But I’m scared about going back to agency life and it’s hours and workload with a new baby. Can’t decide whether to take the jump now so it benefits me in long run or take the route which will likely be easier on me as a new mom and potentially risk slowing down career. Really torn.
Be careful what’s in the background of your screen if you are sharing it in a meeting. Yesterday I saw my boss’s gmail in the background with an active Job Hunt folder with unread messages in it 😐
What day is it again?
I need a wireless router upgrade. Any recommendations of a good wireless router for an apartment around 1,200 square feet with concrete walls? Budget is around $100 or less. Thanks!
Looking to get my man a nice bathrobe as part of his Christmas present since his favoriteis looking a little raggedy lately. Men of the bowl, do you have a bathrobe that you love? Interested in product or brand recommendations.
Unassigned and working from home...how to deal with anxiety of being unassigned during these times?
Me: *thinks I have a nice little nest egg of 1k*
Me: *sees someone on here complain they *only* have 100K+ in savings*
To everyone working in the hospitality industry currently but also open to everyone else, how are you dealing with out burning yourself out but doing extra work because you feel obligated. The reason why I say obligated because I’m 3 months in to a new position and it’s been a lot.
Any single female consultants who have found solution to find a sincere SO after joining consulting ? I wanted to be with 1 person from college, who cooked dinner and brought to me despite being drenched in the rain cycling and who gave me his whole weekly allowance of 20 pounds to buy drinks in pub, but he told me we from different worlds and refused to talk to me from then. Heartbroken, found myself in a place now too materialistic and lots of cheaters, how can we find some genuine ppl?

Has anyone returned to a previous employer? If so, what was the time gap and are you glad you did?
Slalom 🐠 I’ve got a few questions:
1) does utilization count against you? I’ve heard it doesn’t and only helps
2) is there a need to participate in internal initiatives (+1s)? Is it a part of the annual review?
I have always struggled with weight. When I dedicate to working out and dieting, I lose an immense amount of weight and look great, but it only lasts a few months. If you look at pictures of me over the last 7 years, it isn’t like first 3 years fat and then last 4 year thinner, but moreso one year fat, one year skinny, one year fat, etc. Im tired of this. How do you guys make this a lifestyle change? I feel anytime I have a rift in my routine (a trip, long week at work) I spiral and break rotine
I wonder if this Russian vaccine will cause mutation which will give people super powers🧐
Got ready this morning, had breakfast, made it all the way down to my basement wfh office ready to go and just realized it's Sunday. Bonus day!
At my last workplace, I had to follow up with an HR person six times to get something. Is it rude when I went up to her in person to check in again she literally told me “just go be busy and come back later.” 😡 she also was mad when I took my time for my ID photo (it’s just a picture), because I wanted to look good, but then had to go back and re-do my coworkers because his eyes were closed and he rushed his in comparison? Idk just venting🤭
The park was way over crowded today
