Planning to visit family in December but not sure if it's a good idea. Did anyone travel for personal non emergency reasons and come back? What was your experience at port of entry? I have visa stamped, valid until May 2021
I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!
Was going to quit consulting due to travel.. but now COVID .. should I consider staying (I enjoy consulting) in the hope thay clients and consulting firms will reduce travel in a post-COVID world?
Bill Ackman said the hotel industry is done, what should I do with all my points before they disappear? Clearly not switch them to airline points either
Gentle reminder: COVID transmits largely through airborne water droplets - nearly all transmission is through large, respiratory droplets. Masks aren't to protect those wearing them, but those around the wearer. A barrier prevents that cloud of droplets from moving far from the wearer. It isn't a perfect solution, but it does dramatically reduce how far those droplets travel. This is how masks are effective. Anyone saying they aren't effective is only considering effectiveness for the wearer.

I’m being made to work about 50h of client work even while taking PTO once a week. PPMD just keeps putting me on additional small projects that require about 5-10h/week even though he knows I’m fully stretched between a full time and part time project taking 45h+ which is why I’m taking 1day/week off. I feel imma get burnt out soon and start looking elsewhere. Anybody going though this? ‘Tis the impact of high turnover & lack of understanding of boundaries + Team can’t find new candidates

Has anyone ever taken leave to complete the cpa exam? I’m struggling and just feel like I’m drowning with everything tbh. Have failed many times (high 60s) and even had a section expire. Expectations for my work performance are very high and I have neglected studying because of that (my own fault, I know, but unintentional). It’s really starting to weigh heavy on my mind but I don’t wanna quit. How long was your leave, how did you schedule your studying during that, any other advice? Cont…
Hello Fishes, Given interview in Infosys , on 8th Jan 2022. On 12th Jan HR called me and discussed about package. Still I did not get offer letter. May I know how many days Infosys take to release offer letter?
Switch to another consulting firm for 20-25% raise + bonus but same level (manager) or wait for promotion at EY this year but still less money. Doesn't look like EY will match the competing offer.
Is an MHA treated the same as an MBA in the healthcare consulting world? I keep seeing info. on MBA grads making ~150k post grad and can't help but feel like I'm grossly underpaid if that is true. Have an MHA, multiple certs, 3 YOE, making less than 100k right now.
Interviewing for internal strategy roles at a few firms in the coming weeks (retail, CP, healthcare) at manager level. Would value any tips on casing for corporate and how it differs from MBB casing.

I have a principal PM offer at a Series C startup for $260k total comp + $150k in stock over 4 years and start in 8 weeks. Part of me want to stop interviewing (I had 4 offers) but part thinks I should continue to see if I get a higher offer. How many of you continue to interview even after you accept?
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
🐠 sans children: you’re first call tomorrow is 7:00a. Not Zoom. Given your normal routine - what time do you set your alarm?
9 months ago, I posted on this app that I was leaving FAANG for MBB. Every single responder discouraged me from doing it given worse WLB, less pay per hour worked, etc. I’m here to say that you were all correct. Every single one of you. I would go back in an instant if I could.
