Hey there! Interested to know if anyone has worked with an executive or career coach. If yes, did you find the experience helpful? Why did you go and what did you learn/do? Thanks!
Anyone on H-1B/H-1B1 manage to do coaching/training as a second (part time) job? I know both jobs have to be in same industry for concurrent filing, wondering if anyone has success stories! TIA!! :)
Hello fellow Fish, I need some guidance about next career moves/paths. I am currently a SME for Customer Tech Support, but want to grow more personally/professionally. What other roles similar to like Product Management, Project Management, and Technical Support Management should I consider as a vertical movement? I have a family, so I dont really want to travel as much, but I want to break into management of some kind. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Upstairs neighbor is super loud because he has full hard wood floors and walks around like he doesn’t care. I knocked on his door for the first time and told him he’s being super loud and asked him to be more mindful. He agreed, but I don’t think it’s going to change since he’s just walking. My complex has an 80% carpet rule that he’s not following (I literally saw nothing but hardwood floor in his place when he opened his door). I’m trying not to be a Karen about it, but my whole apartment…
At a start-up that just raised a round. I want to ask for a raise and have been building the case. Haven't heard anything about planned raises yet- not sure if I should wait a bit or ask now

How does one approach management about performance reviews? In every position I’ve had prior to my current one, reviews have been organized by management, and fairly regular, but I’ve been at my current firm for almost three years now, and have had one meeting to discuss performance. More to the point, I’d like to discuss my salary and feel a bit awkward bringing that up given the irregularity of these sorts of meetings.
EY / EYP folks - what are some of the smaller / less-advertised benefits you all appreciate? (E.g. PwC provides a WSJ subscription)
Random Tangent: After year end results were delivered, staff received meager 3.8% adjustments, which is far from the news reports of 7.9% USA inflation. In short, essentially everyone in the company just took a paycut. And yet there's bafflement in the C suite when we see less than a week later a handful of key contributors leaving.
Went from unpaid intern to contract, my boss didn’t pay me very much the whole year about $600 even though I worked on multiple UX projects. He promised me work with companies the whole time and didn’t deliver and was hard to get a hold of. I got an offer 6 figures and told him I was leaving. He suddenly wants me to work on his stalled projects after months of not submitting the materials 4 days before work. In the long run, he is a good contact but I no longer want to be a doormat.

I have an ethical dilemma about pre-registration for the vaccine. I had severe health issues and blood work results that indicate a potential autoimmune disorder, but my exact disease hasn’t been diagnosed yet. So I may be immunocompromised, but I don’t have proof or a clear diagnosis at this point. In this situation, would you check the box for autoimmune issues?

My workplace Wi-Fi blocks my email app from refreshing (I have an iPhone and use the mail app). Does anyone know a workaround to this? Where I sit has terrible cellular service so disconnecting from Wi-Fi doesn’t help unless I walk to another building.
Does anyone have a membership with LA Fitness? I don’t feel comfortable returning to the gym, and don’t know when I will. I would like to cancel, but those intimation fees are so high. I only joined in January, and feel like I spent so much just trying to join lol. Is it worth freezing my account for $10/month or should I just cancel?
