Hurricane Comey strikes yet again, blowing in all directions. SMH!

It's like he wants to get fired.


To be honest, I was more scared to read about the pro-Trump bias that may have forced his hand. Countries that have political motivations inside their state security apparatus usually go down a dark path.


At this point, he really should be toast. I guess he has pretty much confirmed the next POTUS! Well done Comey, well done!

I really can't understand why he wouldn't wait an extra five days before breaking protocol and making that damaging statement. Whoever wins, he needs to go

Political pressure got to him I guess....

Agreed @ D1. The reports of a "mutiny" inside the Bureau, and if indeed true, is a very scary one.

I don't think it was bias, it was having all FBI staff lose faith in their leader that made him pursue this.

I don't know if he has any bias, I just know he's completely incompetent. Also maybe delusional if he thinks anyone believes the FBI thoroughly combed through 650k emails in a week

Ditto PwC1- there is no way they did a full review in a week- not possible. At best, they ran some search algorithms and called it a day. I bet he was getting extreme pressure to cap this issue pre- election. Remember, he had strong ties to HRC's campaign. There was no point in re- opening anyway- it was never going to change anything. They found Classified emails the last go and decided there wasn't intent or whatever so what would change it now?

What strong ties, @P2? Can you prove it? And do you really think in 2016 the FBI couldn't pattern match duplicate emails, and efficiently scan the rest?

Speaking to people in forensics and security - no. They could quickly de-dup and find the new ones but to run all of the keyword search algorithms and then to send the emails back to the originating offices to confirm classification level would take longer than a week. In terms of ties- check Wikileaks

Our team is still in peak busy season and working from the office 3 days a week until deadline. The new hire (just started with the firm last month) seems nice but has been casually packing up and leaving at 5 (comes in at 9). there’s definitely stuff he can work on (and knows about) from the task list. What is a nice/non-awkward way of letting them know without actually outright telling them they should at least be staying as long as the manager/senior the days we are in the office?

Struggling to understand how people who leave their families in a different country make it through some of the tougher times in a new country ie times like covid, with flying restrictions, or sometimes just knowing that you may not make it in time to the death bed of a loved one. I’ve been living 7000+ miles away from family for 7 years and it’s really in the last year or so that these thoughts really hit home. How do you put these thoughts to rest ?

Anyone have experience with prenuptial agreements?

Any recommendations as to what to look for in lawyers / prenups?

Hello! First time posting

I’m genuinely curious to hear from others in the HR field. How do you know if you are burned out and need to get out of HR versus find a new company?

I’ve worked 5 places in HR and it seems like we are consistently under valued by leadership and the scapegoats while Managers are rarely held accountable. I have had some great Managers, but they can only do so much when leadership allows Managers to ignore policies and dump things on us.


In NY CPA, how do you know if you have enough CPEs for renewal without your checking EY’s site? Can you check NYS or other website?


How is Decoded (NY and/or LA)? In terms of strategy/creative work


Left other firm before getting cpa experience form signed. Is it possible to go back and get them to sign it if I’m still on good terms with my old team?


Is anyone dating someone very religious when you are not? It hasn't been a deal breaker but I can't really engage in conversation about that part of his life without getting anxious (I grew up in it).


Anyone have a clue what's going on with the seeming agency wide cutback on freelance? It's weird. I'm thinking it's got something to do with meeting profitability targets.
