Me to the partners.
I’ve been in recruitment for almost 2 years now and I’m getting tired of it. What are some career changes I can make within HR that pay well?
Any openings in PWC for SA2?
Referral to Schwab or Fidelity? SVP or Director level in Risk/Audit/Compliance Charles Schwab
Well shit I had no idea promotions were this easy.
How's the WLB in Amazon Pune's Alexa team?
If anyone is experiencing sudden hair loss/breakage - look into your shower water hardness. After moving into a new apartment and experiencing lots of hair fall I got a water softening filter for my shower head and have noticed my hair has become much softer and much less fallout
U.S.A is almost on a verge of recession, how do you think epam will get affect by this since its us based company.

Additional Posts (overall)
The fatigue is real. For those who have been very careful, what are you still doing/not doing and what have you given up on? I’ll start. I still wear a mask and sanitize the crap out of my hands when I go out, wash when I get back. I have stopped wiping down things that come in my apartment and I have started seeing friends - outdoors only, not in groups.
Why are sports where it’s not in a bubble happening? College football and the nfl has had so many cases. It’s not just the players and staff but they spread it to more and more people
Heyo! Can anyone recommend some funny, comedic, light-hearted podcasts? I usually listen to NPR in the background, but the constant barrage of COVID content is getting me down. Thanks!
I am really miserable at my current job, and just do not feel it is the right fit for me. However, my manager does not know I’m unhappy. I am never the type to complain and very much a “yes” person, and outwardly maintain a positive attitude. I’m very anxious that when I quit, my manager is going to be completely blindsided (and angry) because I’ve given no indication of unhappiness. Should I start planting the seed that I’m unhappy, or just continue on acting happy knowing I’ll be leaving soon?
What are the best ways to pay for the 20% down payment for a house? Apart from clawing into all my savings + 401k
If you've been working on projects around your house or been doing random DIY stuff, feel free to join this bowl and share 😀 https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_vdpax3
My husband never reads and wants to start reading as a new hobby. What is a good book that you would recommend for a 40 year old man? Not self help books, but maybe something with action. I think he would like the Bourne series, but he saw all the movies so he's not interested, but something similar.
Those who have unlimited PTO - how many weeks do you REALLY take off? Do your requests always get approved? Are you fully offline or still checking email?
Can someone offer advice? I currently am working in finance and accounting at the big 4, but I really want to go into a different field like PR, communications, HR or project management. I know they are all vastly different but I just don’t feel like I have a shot in any of these because of my background.
I recently got 2 offers and I am trying to decide between them mainly based on WLB.
My profile - UX Strategist / Consultant, YOE-15, Seattle Area
Offer 1 - #Cisco, Strategist in CX team
200K base + 25% bonus + 35-40K RSU + 10% sign on bonus
Offer 2 - #BCG Platinion, Lead Design Strategist
185K base + 20 - 40% + 10% profit sharing bonus
So the total comp is almost in the same range. BCG is a big brand name but is known for notorious work hours. Is it true that BCGians spend 50-60 hrs/week?
For everyone moving back home and not renewing their lease to save some money until we go back in the office - are you all getting this cleared with upper management? I can’t tell if it’s worth me asking or just doing anyways. Feel like I don’t need to ask but also feel like if they found out they would wonder why I didn’t clear it with them first?
Every morning I wake up and say today will be conquered. Then I check my emails and think what a waste of time and mostly my life right now. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/01/style/productivity-coronavirus.html
So my partner will be getting laid off 4/15. 🥺
Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
What happened in NJ?
Can we talk about how Katara should have ended up with Zuko? I just rewatched the series and am frustrated all over again.
