Just got the offer letter. Should I jump ship during Coronavirus? 171k + 20k bonus for AI security startup.
People that travel 80% or more: would you like to see consulting firms move to a new model of partial WFH post-COVID - one week on-site (at client or office), and one week off (WFH)? Why or why not?
If you had the sniffles would you cancel every weekend plan so as to not freak people out? Obviously don’t think I have COVID from one symptom when my son had sniffles last week but is it a faux pas to leave my house slightly ill these days? 😷 🤒 🤕
Anyone know of any good black financial advisors/ wealth managers? I live in the DC area. During all this COVID-19 related stuff it feels like a good time to make sure my finances are in order.
When do you think advisory/consulting folks will hit the road again? And will Covid change advisory/consulting travel forever? ie. Client site for networking, essential work, and most work done remote
After working a more normal schedule during COVID WFH, I cannot understand how I worked 60+ hour weeks for so long. I don’t think I can go back.
One of my good friends is not very cautious with her approach to COVID and it's made me pretty uncomfortable, so I recently decided I don't want to risk seeing her in person anymore. I thought I could just decline invites to meet up, but she's getting persistent. Is there a polite way to tell her the truth without coming off as judgmental? She can certainly make her own decisions; I just don't want to put myself at risk by meeting up.
👇🏻This is why taking drastic measures to halt Coronavirus transmissions (like working from home) is so incredibly important. Read the entire thread. Super enlightening. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1236095180459003909.html

Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
I sleep an average of 10hrs a day. My body refuses to listen to my brain when I try to get going without my 9-11 hrs of rest. I've been WFH lately btw.
I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/

Thanks to the COVID 19 situation a lot of you on this app can now put “keyboard activist” on your resume.
Received verbal offer today for a startup with a pretty good increase in base salary which I’m inclined to accept. In parallel, earlier this week I had confirmed a phone interview for tomorrow with a hiring manager from FAANG for a role I was interested in. For additional context, I had previously interviewed with this group for a different role and apparently the director I spoke with in the second round had referred me to this hiring manager who is his direct report. cont...
For folks serving GPS (gov) clients, do you see an increase in telework options open for the future in the wake of COVID? I think it’s clearly going to be increased for commercial clients, but GPS is a little fuzzier given clearances/contractual obligations.

Curious about the medical leave of absence process. Has anyone been through it recently and can speak to it? How long does it usually take? Thanks
I left auditing for an accounting manager role. My company is in the medical device space and, in working on monthly close tasks, I notice that some sales people do very well. I know sales is more commission heavy, but part of me still thinks about the “what if” I was able to switch. In getting to know some salespeople, they seem to come from all types of backgrounds, from business to public health. I have limited knowledge in the medical space, but I’m willing to learn. Any advice? Drop it?
Just venting. Really want to leave my job but seeing as I’m due to have my baby early April, I’d forfeit maternity leave and don’t want to rush putting my baby in childcare. Being a woman is hard. 😪
