Has anyone resigned their lease on a covid deal apartment? Did the rent go up significantly? Lease is expiring in November and not sure what to expect from the lanlord since the market is back to pre-covid levels
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
I work 8+ hour shifts in the office as we are an essential business where masks are required at all times. Has anyone else had the experience of wearing a good mask at work and getting excruciating headaches at work that last for a few hours after work? I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.
Can we finally agree that indoor office open floor layouts suck and are over rated now? And they should be changed because of COVID. I never want to have them back when returning to office because could never focus and do my work with the buzz around me. It was also a random invitation for co-workers to talk to me whenever they wanted at my desk, which was annoying lol
Birthday gift ideas for a new mom with a month old newborn? Not in the same city as her and I don’t think she’ll want any experience-type gifts with COVID still ongoing
My husband turned out positive for Covid 19 and I’m negative (still). Anybody out there who took care of someone with Covid cares to share advice? 🙏
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Hey 🐟, flying out in a few days to see parents. Two 3 hour flights. Any recommendations to best avoid possible contact with covid besides mask and carrying sanitizer wipes?
I was up for a June promotion and now am doing the work sans title due to COVID-19 - now with no promised promotion after 2 years as an AAE. Thoughts? Do I find another job elsewhere, or stick it out?
Started working a week after graduating last May. Was on track to be one of the top staff performers and then COVID hit. Since working from home I am one of the lowest performers. Anxiety and stress are crippling my ability to succeed. I have social anxiety which makes wfh communication extremely difficult. Managers - how much patience would you have with someone who was doing well pre-pandemic but has been struggling ever since? Should I start planning for a new job? (In case I get fired)
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
For the people claiming Joe Biden is “hiding”. Where do you expect him to go? He’s not going to go throw a rally because he’s not dumb enough to kill his own voters by spreading Covid and encouraging people not to social distance. Where else did you expect to see him, that you didn’t?
Has anyone traveled to Montréal (by air) from NYC recently? Where did you get covid tested? Thanks in advance!!
Those of you who are waiting or opposed to the COVID vaccine - do you feel obligated to divulge your true vaccine status to restaurants, employers, etc.?

Now that I’m in industry, what’s the secret to getting free expensive meals from consulting firm partners and SMs? My older cousin is at a Fortune 100 place and pre covid basically required steak dinners for pre sales meetings and I want in
When do you know it’s time to move on to a new agency? I’m coming up on my first year and feeling very apathetic about my employer right now. It’s not that we haven’t produced great work or that my team gives negative vibes... but I feel an urge to move. I was feeling this pre-covid but after them not really doing much in response to blm and getting approached by a couple recruiters should I start biting? I know grass isn’t always greener but I kinda want to see for myself.
Hi. Has anyone recently filed a H1B transfer petition or extension in premium processing? How long did it take you to receive the receipt notice? Is USCIS still sending email notices or only snail mail? Thanks!

What is the average pay increase year on year for MBA hire at senior level. I know it depends on many factors but looking for range
Hi all, I wondering what I should do i was planning on taking an advance Accounting course in January 2021. Part of my company benefits is tuition reimbursement. I got an email back from my manager that was clearly drafted by the Director. The email basically stated that they were concerned that I was over working myself and the course would not be reimbursed at this time maybe in April that would be after they reevaluate the situation. My question here is should I be concerned I’m a target.
Anyone know average salaries for 3rd year associates at small firms in San Francisco that represent government agencies and non-profit affordable housing developers? The firm has 6 associates, 7 partners and 9 of Counsel.
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
Holy crap, is it common in professional services to openly refer to people as "diversity hires"? I mean I went to the same top 20 b school, paid the same $120k, got the same 650+ gmat.
I’ve been terminated by my firm. Is there a reason not to sign the separation agreement and accept severance?
It seems that management doesn’t always understand that employee engagement is tied to many things such as work/life balance, benefits, workload, etc. Any ideas on how to present this type of info to management? We have already done an engagement survey and delivered results but there is lack of action planning which is also not heavily backed up by leadership. Any ideas on how to deliver this message so it makes an impact?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Any one interested for business analyst role.. looking for asap joining if possible. Role is with a very good mnc in finance and insurance sector.
First day of a new project be like:
For those of you who left big 4 for industry - I’m seeing a lot of people saying they got 30% + raises when leaving. How did you find these jobs willing to pay that much more? Looking to leave at the M1 level and having trouble finding anything with much more than a 10-15% increase in base comp. from my current salary. Would it be dumb to leave for that low of a percentage increase? Some are offering equity in addition to the base comp. but hard to put a specific value to that now.
Is it normal to feel like you messed up after a data science interview? I was able to answer the questions but for the product case, I don't think I was deep enough I expect not to get it anyway
I tried cutting for the first time. I don’t recognize myself. I want to take short term disability to “fix” myself. Therapy isn’t enough. I don’t know how to do that. Has anyone done it? Any advice?
