Anyone here join Orange Theory as a beginner? Pre-pandemic I was an avid gym goer but only really did cardio & weight machines. I’ve been doing at home workouts but I’m losing interest. I’m not super strong or fit and definitely can’t run fast or long as I once did. Im a little nervous going to a group exercise glass being new. Would love to hear people’s thoughts. Im trying to lose covid weight. Are there other fitness studios you enjoy more/made a difference? Thank you!
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?

Struggling with the whole situation right now (Covid and a lot happening in my personal life) and generally I’m a bit more “emotional” / have a lot of empathy. Can’t help but think no one would think twice to question my personality and working style (I’m always very effective at delivering) if I were a man......
As many of us navigate the challenges of negotiating during Covid layoffs, my question is what do you think is a good, fair and realistic salary for an independent agency to offer a Creative Director with 10+ years of experience in metro Detroit, considering the current economic climate?
So, COVID is running wild, pay decreases are in full effect and you just found out one of the worst creatives in the building just got promoted! How do you react?

Heelllppp! My husband accidentally left his grocery COVID disinfectant spray in the same spot where I keep my water spray bottle (they are unfortunately the same color) I sprayed a sweet red pepper plant with the mix generously and poured some in because the plant seemed dry.

Advice needed: I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a while. Things are generally going well but when it comes to traveling to see each other I’m always the one making more of the effort to go to him. I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?

Been In-House for 2 years now. Doing primarily Employment Law. I was offered a position at one of the Big 4 L&E Law Firms at a smaller office, my salary would be exactly the same I make now. In house has been comfortable but it’s not that challenging and I’m debating if I should go back to a firm. What should I do? Has anyone went back to a firm from in house?

Question about credit age and credit scores. If I call up Amex and tell them to open a new credit card and transfer the credit from another card to this new credit line (and cancel the old credit card but keep the old credit line on my new credit card). Would the average age of open credit decrease as a result of both opening a credit card AND losing the credit card I had opened? Or would the age if the second credit card be transferred over.

Hi, does anyone have any insight into what kind of 100% remote career options there are for an accountant? I just graduated and I'm trying to get my CPA exams knocked out before working. I'm very indecisive on where I want my career to go but I value working remote a great deal (even at the expense of climbing the ladder.)
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
What are the potential benefits of working at a deals oriented firm (e.g., LEK, S& Deals, EY-P) as compared to the more traditional Big 4 MC type roles at the post-M level? Really struggling with putting in the hours for the deals centric role as I’m not 100% sure of the longer term payoff (besides short term slight bump in comp).
