Anyone been tested for covid at judiciary square? How long was the wait and how long did results take?
Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.
To the folks that don’t want to get the vaccine, what is your reason? This seems like a strange hill to die on considering people losing their livelihood over this
Why can't these people just work hard like the rest of us?!? Hands up! Don't loot! https://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-connected-lobbyists-secure-coronavirus-financial-aid/
Some interesting info from the AP regarding cuts to CDC funding and whether protocol / teams are in place to handle Coronavirus. https://apnews.com/d36d6c4de29f4d04beda3db00cb46104
For US locations of Big Four firms, please indicate your covid vaccine policy and effective dates for when those policies started.
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.
Ladies and gents- when/if you had option for timed intercourse (~15% chance of pregnancy) vs IUI (~30% chance), which one did you/would you do in the time of COVID? Option 2 requires partner and me returning to hospital tomorrow (I was here today). Option 1 obviously does not. Thanks for your advice in advance! This is following second round of clomid, FYI.
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
Has anybody changed locations from SF or NY to a Lower COL city like Chicago during COVID (specifically in tech) and had their salary adjusted down? If so, how much was the decrease?
Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
Why haven’t you take the Covid-19 Vaccine yet? 🤔
For those of you who have moved back home(due to COVID or holidays), how has your dating life been impacted?
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
Yahoo reports 1.4 million healthcare workers lost their job during COVID19. Are you one of them? How can we help?
Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Can I apply infosys after 6 months after rejecting their offer ? Should I use a new Email ID? N.B. I have rejected the offer due to parental COVID infection on middle of second wave. I need a long leave which may not be possible while serving notice period. Informed and mailed HR with proper documents.HR accepted the same politely.
I’m in Tax and completing the mandatory GAM WBL. Usually, this course it presented at ETU and can be described as three monotone panelists speaking for two hours without any inflection whatsoever. This year, due to COVID, it’s presented as WBL. However, instead of a new and interesting format, it’s just a recording of the same humdrum blithering. Except now, I get to listen to it with my children fighting in the background.
Between Covid and protesting, how are you all staying sane in all this? I can’t focus on anything and I feel so much guilt on top of all the other stress.
I currently work as a C++ developer at an MNC. All the majority of job postings are filled with full stack. So my question is, i have worked on front end a little. So if i self learn this skills, what are the chances that i do get a call for an interview? Have ppl been able to switch domains like this? I have 3yoe now. Or will have to lie a little on my resume to back my experience?

Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
Curious what Admissions would think about a gap in work experience? I would love to leave b4 and spend full time studying for GMAT/ searching for a new job w better wlb. Insight/input much appreciated.
I recently changed jobs and my new 401K provider - Principal has very limited MF investment options. My prior employer’s 401K was managed by Fidelity and provided me access to a range of MF options. I believe that the fund options are negotiated by the employer and provider? Two questions. First - I have not rolled over my previous 401K to the new one. Would there be any problems. Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?
Have some downtime. Would anyone read a book on how to lead successful tech strategy assessments? (Willing to pay for it? $9.99?)
For those that quit big 4 about 5-10 years ago as a senior, are you regretting your decision for not staying longer? I’m trying to figure out my long term plan...
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management. Any advice on books or courses to help make the transition? I'm struggling to land PM interviews at companies that aren't tiny startups :(
Need some inspiration...fam keeps asking for my holiday gift list and I have very few ideas for myself (34M). Have a few crutches I can lean on from wardrobe/hobbies (golf etc.). Anyone have any go-to, can’t-live-without items they recommend? (Budget <$500 per item)

What counts as prior inventions that should be written in a previous inventions disclosure? I’ve “created” processes that are essentially well known but customized to my client. Does that count?
