Since my elementary age kids starting remote school and our region still hard hit by COVID, two of my clients have checked in to see how it’s going but nobody at my firm has even acknowledged the situation. I’ve always been well aware that coworkers are not friends and kept work and personal very separate but there is a humanity to this particular situation that feels especially depressing when going unacknowledged. Is this just me?
So.... how bad would it be to bail on an internship halfway through? Asking for a friend.
I have received an offer as SD1 at Amazon Gurgaon. I have 1 yr and 6 months of experience. I did my BTech in computer science from 2016-20. I had some active backlogs as well. Due to covid, many exams were not conducted and as for the ones that did happen, the results are taking forever to come. Right now I have one backlog and the result is yet to be announced. I am positive I will pass. Will this affect my offer from Amazon during background check as I am yet to receive degree?

I have an internship offer from PwC FDD deals for summer 2022. I accepted the offer. But, for some important reasons, I want to move the summer internship to winter internship. If I ask them, is it something PwC will be willing to do? I really don't want to let go to this internship offer.
And, when would be a good time to reach out to them and tell them about it?

How do I go about negotiating salary at my first internship? For reference the role pays fairly well but I was told that I should always at least try to negotiate higher pay.
Looking for advice: I have an analyst (9 months on the job) who still doesn’t get it - repeatedly misses comments, doesn’t follow instructions, slow, etc. I have raised this to both my MDs and they seem to be adopting a “not my problem” approach when I mention it. I had advised against hiring this analyst post internship and my MD insisted that all the issues I highlighted were fixable. I have tried teaching him to no avail and frustration with him is growing. Any suggestions for how to handle?
So, the CDC removed the Covid guidelines. I’ve never had Covid. I’m afraid people will come into work not wearing a mask and be inconsiderate… ughhh so distracting and disgusting. I’m also at risk to develop complications. Not sure if I should talk to HR. Not even sure if I should ask for accommodations to continue being able to wfh at least most days of the week to reduce risk. Idkkkk 😩This is so unprecedented. I always wear my mask at work. I’m getting pressured to attend firm events as well
Agreed to let my 13yo nephew who tested positive after an outbreak at his school quarantine at my house so he wouldn’t expose his younger siblings and because I have Covid paid leave and can take time off/wfh. My brother and his mom have both remarried and have kids under 3. They were both grateful. The past two days, my unvaccinated brother keeps coming to visit with his toddlers and no masks. It is mind-boggling to me that he’d willingly expose himself and his young kids to Covid 😣. Cont…

I am finishing up my industrial PhD (I developed a model for cell migration and vasculature formation - a mix between condensed matter physics, computation and deep learning) based in Barcelona (Spain), and I was thinking of applying for an internship as a Software Engineer/Student Researcher at Google/Microsoft/Apple/Nvidia.
The fact is I am worried about the topic of my studies as they focus on cell migration. Is there anything I could do to improve my chances of getting in?
