How should I spend my two weeks block leave during this COVID? Does anyone travel overseas?
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.

More emotional health related here... Anyone deal/dealt with a controlling spouse, who insists on cutting ties with your extended family (my dad who doesn’t meet his expectations). It’s getting so bad, I feel like I’m headed for either a nasty divorce, or not allowed to let my kids see my parents, which both scenarios are heartbreaking. We are both on board with couples therapy, but (I’m guessing due to Covid), so many therapists waiting lists are weeks long/indefinite - feels hopeless.
I work in a small office (10 people, not with Mazars) and there is talk requiring everyone to be Covid vaccinated in order to return to the office, i.e. to continue working at this firm. Thoughts?

I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake
Anyone flown recently and needed to show proof of a covid test? Flying American to California for the week and need to know if this Chicago order is being enforced
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
I recently got my friend hired (1-week in) at my workplace and turnaround is all time high right now (darn Covid, 3 people left since I've joined for 7 months), but I'm gonna be talking to a recruiter as a salary offer came up for 50% higher than my current workplace. I feel really bad if this opportunity actually comes true as 50% increase to salary is ridiculous not to consider. I feel horrible and don't want to burn bridges and I like the people & manager I work with. What should I do?

Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?
Is it normal for PwC to downgrade you from a sr position you applied on their job portal to a experienced associate? I was told I will be fast tracked and the offer they gave me is on par with the base salary of a SA. Seems like I can’t negotiate the position.
Can you create a new delta sky miles account and sign up for your companies fast track promotion challenge again if you didn’t achieve it last time? Or can they block you from doing so?
