I started an update on my Mac desktop today at 10 CST. It’s now been 5 hours and it’s not even a quarter of the way done. I’m very good about keeping the updates regular and it’s never taken more than an hour or so. Has anyone else had this happen? I’m nervous my computer just kicked 😣 Apple

Hi ladies. I need some advice. I'm currently out on maternity leave, to return in about a month. I was just informed my male counterpart in my department will be getting a promotion by our new boss. This is really a slap in the face considering I've been trying to fight for equal pay since last year when I found out another (former) male counterpart of mine was making 40k more than me. What would you do in my situation? Demand to know why I wasn't considered? Leave?

If you started working at a company for like a year as a staff level, for example 2019-present, and this is reflected on LinkedIn, do you guys update any promotions to show it as (the date or year of promotion) -present... or just show it as 2019-present? I’ve seen people do the latter more but is that even right?
