This is my first job as a manager. I’ve been managing a junior level employee and although he received warnings, he hasn’t improved. I need to let him go. I know his mom is sick and I feel terrible.
10w 🤰🏻, traveling at the moment and prenatal vitamins are really making me sick. I throw up whenever I take them, but that’s my only source of folic acid. Is it risky to not take them?
I need serious advice. I’m so sick of the one matrimonial site I’m on. Any suggestions on which ones actually work? Any success stories from those of you who went this route? 30F fwiw.
Does anyone teach with an autoimmune disease/medical condition? What are some of your best tips for taking care of yourself?
Anyone have a sensitive stomach? Id love to hear some explanations from the crowd that aren’t a serious medical condition - just an above average sensitivity. I don’t think I have IBS, but I get really triggered by certain foods and they just run right through me. Some triggers I know (too much cream / fat, or conversely a large amount of raw vegetables) but other times it feels really random.
Been with my s/o for 13 years. We have had a lot of ups and downs. She had a really rough upbringing which caused severe anxiety and depression. I tried splitting up but I could sense she was unraveling and we'd always end up back together. Eventually I felt so stuck/got so sick of it that I went to grad school out of state (wasn't the right move i know but I couldn't get through to her that it was taking a toll). Long distance sucked, and her depression turned into suicidal behavior. (Cont).
Interested in your thoughts on a new study stating that 28% of the nation’s teachers are “chronically absent” (defined as missing 10 or more days of school- personal and sick- not professional).
My grandmother passed away recently, and I thought I would be very sad and cry, but I am not and I wonder if there’s something wrong with me. I was very sad and cried when she fell ill three years ago, but when she passed away I don’t think what I felt was sadness, more like emptiness... Is this normal? I’ve never had someone close to me pass away and I feel terrible because I am not crying.
Hey Folks - Any one use their FSA $ towards a dietitian or nutritionist? If so, could you share your experiences? I'm considering Working Against Gravity but I don't think we can use our FSA. It also appears 'nutritionist' is unregulated and a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) is needed for the expense of a nutritionist's services.
My puppy is sick 😭
We have limited vacation days but “unlimited” sick days. A coworker is constantly forecasting no vacation and then using sick days to take vacation and tells us after the fact. Is this wrong to do?
(also posted on singles bowl but want ladies opinion) I slept over at my boyfriend's apartment for the first time and found a stash of Viagra and other ED medicines in his cabinet. We have only started dating recently and his "performance" has been hit/miss. Very confused on how to approach it with him. Should I even be with him or not? I am feeling like he lied to me about his medical condition and could have brought it when I had explicitly asked him about this.

What firm are you at and what are the maternity leave benefits? We only get about 3 months using parental leave and short term disability paid at 100%.
Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?
My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?

Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?
Some of my clients have had a blurred zoom background. It’s definitely not static; the background blur moves as their cameras move around too. Anyone know what this is?!
