Dear Drogo5 peeps. How long did it take to produce the facebook covid work? Start to finish. And what was the budget?
Stock market looking great. Unemployment numbers improving already with so many states still waiting to open. Hope we can rebuild our great economy and bring it back to pre-covid numbers soon🙏
Any tips on things to purchase (both safety, cooking, mental wellbeing) for preparing to live alone? Pre-covid I loved the idea of living alone but as my 8/1 move in date approaches getting a little overwhelmed and want to avoid feeling lonely with most of my family and loved ones living across the country and spending all day on work video calls, don’t want to rely on personal Zooms
Since the COVID thing started I’ve seen a lot of posts bout people realizing they are w/ the wrong partner/spouse. 4 us single folks, what qualities do u wish u focused on instead?
I’m only 2-3 years into my career and I feel like f*cking toilet paper — just spent a week of my life busting ass/working OT on a reduced salary (thanks COVID, love ya 😘) “designing” PPT presentations for clients I’ve never met. I know that’s normal, but it would be nice to know the ppl who constantly tell you to “jazz it up”... I’m just really, really questioning what I’m doing in advertising. I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.
Has ghosting gotten worse during covid?
Google is providing all US-based employees weekly COVID tests by mail using bioiQ. Any consulting firms out there doing the same? Seems like a great perk.

I work in insurance defense and we are getting slammed as far as workload and have been for some time. It’s nice because I haven’t had to beg for billable work and always hit my goals. My question is whether this has been the norm at other insurance defense firms. My other question is how other states are dealing with COVID restrictions on jury trials. Has anyone tried anything during the pandemic?
So he tested positive days before the debate. Then miraculously tested negative. Then days after, he tested positive again and ended up in the hospital. After the fact, in his town hall with Savannah Guthrie, he said he never tested positive until *after* the debate. I’m sure it was all totally above board… and naturally, Trump says Meadow’s claim is fake news. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book
My friend has Covid and is all alone. I’d love some suggestions of good care packages I can send her!
I dont know about you guys, but the Naya Rivera news hit me hard.. and I didnt even know who she was. Dont ever take your life for granted, we arent promised tomorrow 🙌🏽 Makes you also think how we can get desensitised to hearing the # of DAILY deaths due to covid.. Remember that they too were fighting for their lives and have left behind devastated loved ones.
Have your employers made you return your covid monitors/desks if you’ve gotten a new job? How have they collected?
Anyone isn’t big fun of year end gatherings? I live close with elder parents, concerned about COVID spike. But feeling obligated to attend …..wondering if I’m the only one.
About to start separation/divorce proceedings pending covid ending. Is it bad to want to date much older men who can just take care of me for a change? Is that asking for too much? 😂
Completely random question - I am getting pretty sick of working from home. Based in LA, so with the covid situation working from a cafe/restaurant is not possible. I have a nice park nearby. Has anyone worked from a park before? If yes, what items should I be prepared to bring along and any other nice to have items that you would recommend? @
I was swarmed with work in June and until 10 days ago, now everything's gone silent again. I'm guessing it's directly related to the COVID uncertainty (e.g. 2nd waves and all). Until we have a vaccine we won't be making a lot of money, I guess. I'm on track to bill 1750 hours this year if I'm lucky.
As the post-COVID workplace is transforming the core essence of what’s most important to recruiting, retaining and developing talent (employees, consultants, hybrid type work), what are the core one or two “MVPs”- - (Most Valuable Professional-Personal) ‘essentials’ you require for your ideal career-life design blueprint?

Had a project interview yesterday and it was pretty mediocre. One of the managers really liked me, the other seemed a little skeptic and wanted work samples. I’ve been pretty anxious since and cont
Any AWS TPMs that can shed some light on interview process? I have my first round of phone interview in a few days and would love to hear some tips, questions, experiences.. thanks in advance!
Anyone offices in the Mid West have decently sized Asset Management Audit practises? Sick of being priced out of any property that isn't a 2 hour commute or a studio condo.
What is your year end holiday plan, if any?
Any (light) book recommendations to read- non fictional, not self-help. Psychology, abstract, biography, science, human evolution, how our mind works, etc..

So if my friend is a manager and I'm a consultant who just got staffed but hasnt started yet..can he pull me onto his project? I don't want to do the work but it aligns to my industry..
COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
Ideas for quality protein sources that are easy to make at home and won’t break the bank? I’m getting sick of eggs and chicken breast and I’m lactose intolerant so avoid dairy. I try to avoid lunch meat due to the nitrates and avoid beef jerky due to the high sodium. I hate cooking so no elaborate recipes 😄
Has anyone tried the Marriott/SPG tribute homes.in London? Looks like Air bnb style, cheaper than rooms and you can earn some points.
Has anyone received any support from administration on setting up remote learning for PE? If so what are you doing?
Thoughts on getting a MS in Systems Engineering? Is it still relevant/competitive against a MS in Comp Sci/Data Science for Product Management/Startup roles? What exactly can you do with it? Assuming a top program.
Brand side creatives who've been in a role for several years..how do you stay sane? I thought when I accepted this role, that a few years in I could explore or move into other departments since it's a large company. But seems like the very few openings are always meant for someone they already had in mind. I've offered to help other teams out and that was also nixed (they don't want mix budgets or something idk). None of it makes sense. My talent is underutilized and I'm frustrated daily. Help😭
Hi any recs for cooking schools / courses in LA? Looking to give to fiancé as a Christmas gift. Bonus points if it’s done at a cool restaurant or school!
I am 2 nights away from being grandfathered into SPG’s lifetime platinum (10 years, 498 nights). Think they’ll give it to me if I ask? Not able / willing to book 2 more nights this calendar year.
Anyone seriously considering a permanent remote work situation and move out of Chicago after Covid? How do you go about it with your Manager/company? Do you keep your Chicago salary or is a move put things in question?
