Hey Accenture peeps, how's the wfh policy there before and after covid? When do you expect back to office? And can u get wfh even after work starts normal from office?
Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage

Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.
Anyone been tested for covid at judiciary square? How long was the wait and how long did results take?
I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
Moved here in March with my SO (she’s from here) just before Covid hit and never had a chance to socialize outside of her group of friends. Anyone in a similar situation? Ppl seem very cautious still.

Twitter might become a very awkward place for the White House. Twitter is going to add misleading labels, including tweets from politicians. https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/05/11/853886052/twitter-to-label-potentially-harmful-coronavirus-tweets
Should you leave a somewhat stable (not so much with Covid and layoff talks) job for an ~8% pay increase at another agency rightnow? Who knows what the other place could be as well.
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx
I have bad Sunday blues. I feel like I should just take xanax and go to bed. I am in a bad covid cycle of binge eating, starving, drinking too much, then being rigidly “good” for a few days then spiraling into the cycle again. I feel doom and can’t get off my couch. I went on vacation w family and had a good time last week. Back home alone I feel in a funk again. Funkier than Cold Medina. Just wanted to share with someone.
My start date isn’t until July 2021 the earliest for my full time job because of COVID, but I graduate in December 2020, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for temp/contract work to look for (or good places to find it). I’m from the Chicagoland area.
Amazing! What a complete turn around for 🇺🇸 Big thank you to everyone doing their part to get us all back to some form of normal! https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/05/25/1000171685/half-of-all-u-s-adults-will-be-fully-vaccinated-against-covid-19-as-of-tuesday?ft=nprml&f=1001
I work near Detroit. My district says no masks are mandatory. My Open House seemed like a breeding ground for Covid germs. Plus with of course no A/C it was 110° in my room. Fun.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
