I know this is controversial, but would you get a vaccine if you didn’t have kids yet? I feel like there isn’t enough information on if/how this could potentially affect fertility. I personally contemplate waiting a little longer (at least until it’s FDA approved), but at the same time thinking maybe I’m over reacting?
My baby came home sick from daycare today so she has to stay home the next two days. Any recs for working at home with the baby? And do I give my manager a heads up? I work with only India pretty much so my schedule is so flexible and my husband is going to WFH too to help
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.
for people whose parents might be visiting from India to the States, would you recommend any particular travel and/or medical insurance?
Okay, I’m just going to say I’m deeply ashamed that I work for adam&eve DDB London. IMO it’s become a nasty, toxic environment run by robots. Some of the things I’ve heard this week in how they’ve treated people recently has shaken me. So many people are out sick with burnout. So many people are struggling and we pride ourselves on not giving help. I need out. It’s so elite, jumped up and unsustainable.
Haven’t decided whether I want to get the vaccine yet (skip over this if you’re going to comment with judgment), but every work call/happy hour lately involves people discussing their vaccine status. Any thoughts on responses for when I’m asked about mine?
Why the HELL are so many men so effing lazy?!?! Why tf would you drop your clothes on the FLOOR instead of the laundry basket that’s RIGHT NEXT TO IT?!?! Our mothers raised their sons to be lazy, because this shit wouldn’t fly when I was a kid but when my brothers did it she just quietly picked up after them. Same experience goes for all my friends. Ladies, y’all better not be raising your sons the same way. The next generation of men cannot be this dumb!!! 🤬 I’m so sick of it! Rant over!

How do folks in US go about routine medical needs (e.g., blood pressure check ups and prescription refills) of parents who are visiting? Do you just pay out of pocket and approximately how much does it cost for routine things like the one I mentioned?

DPW has made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all U.S. offices. Anyone who doesn‘t have the vaccine will not be permitted to enter the premises. Can I please check how the other BigLaw firms are dealing with this? Don‘t want to start a political discussion, but this seems very intruisive to me.
Anyother SpEd teachers out there getting dumped on by your fellow coworkers? I'm getting so sick and tired of it! We are given more and more to do and NO one has our back, not even the union!

Client keeps misgendering (M2F) me after I’ve corrected them multiple times in conversation. I confronted them directly about it and now my manager is threatening to roll me off the team. What do I do
Registered to vote in the Bay Area last midterms, now living out of state (TX). I cannot register to vote online in TX and had to mail in a form back on the 5th, which obv I missed. What are my options at this point to vote, other than flying back to CA? If I have to, I will.

Thoughts on MD vs Partner route at EY? Partner: - higher comp - first class citizen - pension - tied to firm - higher sales targets - less wlb MD: - lower comp (30-50%?) - second class citizen - lower sales targets - easier to bail if you hate it (?) - delivery focus - slightly better but probably still terrible wlb Am I missing anything?
How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
