Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
For those with an HSA, what docs do you keep for your current medical expenses so that you can cash them out later? Is it the receipt? Is it the bill? What is the best way to store those to keep them organized so you have them in the future?
Are annual physical exams necessary for young people? I am 27M, exercise nearly everyday, eat clean, don't smoke/drink, healthy weight, no medical conditions.

Has anyone with an ADA disability put in any notice to their company? I have one and my doctor is concerned I’m being pushed to the limit with the amount of work I have. Been working 70-80hr weeks if
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
Has anyone resigned while on a medical LOA?
I am sick of networks pretending to be 50/50 but hiring just men in C suite creative positions. “Let’s promote men and then hire women to work under them, that will change the ratio.” 🖕
Question regarding Salaried Employees and sick days. I’ve never worked in a company where, as a salaried employee, I had to deduct SICK days from my PTO. What are your practices?
Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads. I went straight to Accenture right after college and while I’m so grateful for having a good job, I just feel like I haven’t done enough and will never realize certain financial goals at the rate I’m going. The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”
Breakthrough thought: instead of lying and saying your sick, take a sick day for mental health reasons. 99% you need it
Has anyone taken disability leave, and then used it to look for jobs? How does this work legally?
Housing market is pretty good; I'd like to buy a place but wonder if it's ill advised since I haven't paid off all my student debt yet and there are rumblings about an impending recession
Situation : A sped student has an accomodation in their IEP to ride the SPED bus. However, the student and his brother have been refusing to get on the bus and get violent towards anybody trying to put them on the bus. They hit kick and spit on the driver and the assistant when getting strapped into the bus. According to the student handbook they should be suspended because of their actions. Question: should the students be suspended or does their legal accomodation supercede district policy.
What's your firm's sick leave policy?
If you’ve ill informed friends and families about the virus and race, please call them out and inform them of the realities. The virus is a problem in itself, we don’t need more racism and violence.
Went out this weekend for my cousin’s 21st bday. My cousin ended up getting super sick, throwing up at the bar, etc. my buddy and his gf came to the same bar (they were celebrating gf’s bday). Seeing my cousin in a bad state I decided to take her home. My buddy’s gf got super mad at me and my gf for wanting to care for my cousin. She then gave a half assed apology saying she was annoyed at the situation. I don’t really know how to bring this up to my friend. Any suggestions are appreciated!
So I am going to try and jump ship from PWC before the sale, should I start dressing in suits now so days I interview look less werid or just call out sick each day I have an interview?
I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.
How much do you target in your kid’s 529? Given tuition inflation, and the vast cost difference across public and private schools, how do you think about a target number? I currently have ~$60k saved for my 8 year old and I’m wondering if I’m on track.
I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar
Wife is a US citizen and I’m a Canadian citizen. We both live in Canada. She can cross the US land border from Canada because US citizens are exempted from the travel restrictions. Can I cross with her (from Canada to US) as her spouse?

Bye bye green card and adjustment of status??
First time ever I will have to work 7 days a week during busy season to meet client deadlines.
I was told I'd be allowed to transfer to a new project, after 6 months. So, I decided to stay with the firm and declined 2 external offers. I have just found that I'm being forced to stay on a project that I hate. Should I bring this up to my coach and mention the offers? I'm wanting to drive home the point that I will be leaving if this continues.
How do you deal with a teammate that creates unnecessary work for themselves and others and then acts passive aggressive towards the team? Example - MD has already reviewed and signed off on the document and their feedback was incorporated. Teammate then takes 3 hours to change a ton of the content before sending to client.
Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.
Any Oracle folks from other firms interested in coming to play for Uncle D? I'm looking for people in Financials (EBS/PS/Cloud) and Supply Chain. Crazy strong pipeline, empty bench.
New Yorker moving to Chicago- been Delta platinum for years, should I go to American or United? (intl mileage is important)
Kicking off travel - anyone done any recent research on best reward cards / program etc?
Anyone have a DUI prior to applying for a job at big4? Curious how the firms view one on a background check, particularly one that’s old (almost 10 years).
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
Accenture CN peeps, my manager has not been able to staff me to a project for 2 weeks now after my release from one of the projects where the role as as good as content manager’s. I had voluntarily asked for my roll off as the role was just to upload come content on various platforms. They tried allocating me to some internal project but I asked them to staff me on a client facing project. I want to know what is the impact of all this on your performance or relationship with manager etc.?
