I know I’m planning to leave my current company and in the late stages interviewing but there has recently been a reorganization and have moved to a new team in the last few weeks and feel bad for them training me just for me to leave in a few weeks. Any tips to handle giving notice to the team you just joined? I know leaving is the right decision for me and shouldn’t feel bad bc they’ll fire other people in a second but feel bad knowing that the team will be like 1 person after I resign

When do you tell your boss you’re pregnant? I want to start looking for another internal role… but do I mention I’m pregnant during the interview process or after/if I get the job? I’m still pretty early in first trimester. But whenever I find a role and apply, I’ll probably be further along.

Recruiter said they will arrange for a meeting with comp analyst to run numbers in a day or two. It has been a week and three days of no response? Is it worth following up or should I assume they will get back if they have an update?
Design challenges: I'm in the process of trying to change jobs, and recently cam across two companies that do "design challenges' during their interview process.
First time I encountered one and I thought it was a bit weird. They requested me to redesign a feature of their current product. I politely declined and after reading a few articles, it seems that it is a common practise in the market.
Currently rent a 3br/1.5ba home on Capitol Hill through neighborhood acquaintances. Have been there for one year. They chose not to use a property mgmt company and passed along the discount to us when we moved in last year. Lease is up for renewal and they communicated they’d like to increase rent 8.5%.

A ship engine failed but no one could fix it, so they brought in a very experienced man. He inspected the engine very carefully. After looking things over, the guy pulled out a hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine burst back into life.
The owner was given a bill for $1,000,000.
The invoice said:
Tapping with a hammer: $5
Knowing where to tap: $999,995
In response, the owner murdered the man with a hammer.
Moral: Hammers rule.
Anyone know if there is a typical staff level priority for layoffs with big 4? i.e directors first, analyst last. Partners not bringing in business go first?
How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.
I'm getting sold as someone who has 5 years of experience in function I've never touched before. I expected to advise the client by myself on best practices when I have no idea what they are. Advice?
Someone solve this for me- I’m going crazy! I have a prepaid visa debit card. I used it at a pizza restaurant for a total (incl tip) of 24 even. The visa card balance says I spent 28.80 at the pizza restaurant. So I checked with the restaurant to see if someone could’ve tacked on an extra tip, but their system shows $24. Does visa charge a 20% fee?!?! That would be insane right? Has anyone experienced these visa debits and know what the culprit could be?
PMDs: “I know every is tired of zoom, let’s try to limit meetings where possible
Also PMDs: “We need a zoom pre meeting to prep for the main meeting, which is also on zoom, and a debrief meeting on zoom immediately after the main meeting. We also need a zoom meeting with the core team after the debrief meeting. And the client expects us to be on video and in business casual”

I'm on a staff aug helping a client with process improvement. I do multiple presentations that my manager is not aware where the feedback from the client is great. How do I ensure my manager knows this for my reviews? He is not very plugged into my work because I drive the workstream and doesn't hear that feedback directly. Often the feedback is given over pings/group chats
