Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
If you had the chance to become financially independent (i.e. interest from savings covers all expenses) within ~10 years, what would you be willing to sacrifice for that? Eg building and maintaining close relationships, free time to spend on your hobbies, time to go on vacation/relax, etc?

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is.

Has anyone been in a situation (apartment / condo) where they had a shared wall with a smoking permitted-unit where there was a regular smoker - did anyone speak to your doctor / receive medical advice about whether the secondhand smoke exposure would be enough to potentially cause medical issues? In this case, there would be a shared wall but not a shared ventilation system - slightly concerned about the smell but mostly concerned about medical issues given the carcinogens in cig smoke
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Hello everyone, Does anyone use 12.9 iPad (with a magic keyboard) as a “second workstation”? For example: lightweight typing machine when you need to work on an email or draft a document, or just join a conference call. My primary machine is MacBook Pro 16 but it’s a bit balky and I’d prefer not to take it with me when I’m leaving for a vacation.
When this is over, imma need a 3 day holiday to catch up on happy hours, house parties, and hang overs

Current S1 here. Is it okay if my resume experience is just: B4 Internship > Associate > Senior? (All in the same firm/practice) Never done other internships. The only other thing I could include is a student assistant job I had in college. Not sure if that's even relevant. Guess just the progression at this 1 firm is enough? Just looks a bit incomplete on the resume.
What made your internship special and why did you want to join your firm? Think, fun things or small touches that went a long way, too.

Thoughts on Indexed Universal Life Insurance as an investment vehicle? I hear the pros and cons from the sellers of this, whom I understand gain heavy commissions. But wanted to get thoughts from investors and if this isn't a good vehicle, what alternative investment vehicles do you suggest (outside of stocks, Roth, 401k, and real estate)? Looking to diversify my portfolio. I'm 43, married, income 600k combined, and we have 2 properties worth 3m and investment accounts worth ~2-3m. Thanks!

I feel I lost my social or communication skills because of WFH! Does anyone feel the same way? Sometimes when ppl wanted to have small talks with me, all I wanted to do is to finish that conversation ASAP. It seems I lost the interest to whatever others are saying. Really need some advice here😭
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories.

Hoping for some perspectives.
