Italy lost 133 doctors/dentists while they were treating Covid.. No other disease killed this many medical professionals for treating them in such a short time. Please take it seriously. Anyone who tells you masks don’t work is an idiot. I get news from my home country too and no one understands why some people are claiming masks don’t work here. Culture of anti-science among some groups of people here are real and detrimental to everybody else.
Has anyone had any luck reducing rent with current landlord or actually broken their lease? Resigned pre COVID and now everyone is getting 2 months free on a new lease. Would probably save by breaking the lease and moving to a better area that is also cheaper. NYC based
Lots of new testing in the next week. The number covid cases is about to go way up. But the mortality rate is also about to crash.
Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
During Covid lockdown, can I do WFH from India till lockdown is over? Currently in US on H1B
Had our first Zoom happy hour for LGBTQ+ in Advertising last week! Tips: Frame it around a question or a problem to facilitate meaningful conversation (we talked about how to pivot Pride during COVID)
Has ghosting gotten worse during covid?
Hey guys, I had a question- My job location is Seattle and currently due to covid and work from home, I am in Texas. If my H1B FY22 gets picked up (currently on F1). Do I have to return back to Seattle or I can continue to work from Texas? Know there is 90 miles rule in place but not sure how stringent it is. Please can you let me know. THANKS!!
I’ve been living in my parents basement during COVID and it has relapsed my anxiety/depression. I decided to go back to where I actually live (NYC) and my parents are helping me move. We have it planned to be as careful as possible with Covid. Tonight my brother sent a mean text to me saying I was being stupid and irresponsible. His concerns were valid but his text was extremely harsh and mean. Now it sent my anxiety off the charts 😩😩
We are all having such a tough day over here. Kids are super emotional, hubby and I didn’t sleep well last night, and this whole Covid thing is sucking the life out of all of us. Hugs to all of you out there feeling the same way.
Got an appointment with a dentist / orthodontist today but have been second guessing going due to General Covid concerns. Anyone felt similar or have advice?
I understand that weddings are hard to plan and it’s hard to plan anything right now with COVID, but you telling me you think I’m going to go to your wedding just because it’s family and you think my 1 year old daughter will be there is freaking insane.....gosh I wish I could just tell her that we won’t be going but it’s my husband’s family and I’m done intervening. He gets to tell them in a month or so if it’s still bad
He is doing something about covid. He's waiting for it to disappear. One day he will be right
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
Started a new job. Today. In the midst of the coronavirus. Was working at a startup with no sizable income and is on halt now. I feel extremely lucky. Good luck to all, not all hope is lost!
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
In one month we cleard out a 5000 sq ft office space and turned it into a lab running high throughput COVID pcr tests (600 per day rn).
I hope this’ll Hollywood continues direct to demand releases after COVID19 ends https://www.buzzfeed.com/whitneyjefferson/new-movies-being-released-on-demand-not-in-theaters?utm_source=dynamic&utm_campaign=bffbbuzzfeedvideo&ref=bffbbuzzfeedvideo
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.
Looking at my first Sales Engineering job. $140K target salary. 80/20 split between base and OTE. What is a realistic OTE for Gross Profit, and how to I negotiate to make more every year? I will be getting certified in AWS Cloud Architecture, but will be focusing on HP Data Center Infrastructure to start. Please help thanks!
Team member on project, "You're not like most black people out there..." "How many black people do you know?" I said. "....not that many personally if I'm to be honest." Me: "Oh..👀" *subject change*
What matters more - billable hours or quality of work? It seems like I have a good reputation for always being available, but personally, I don't think I am doing my best work as I'm overloaded. Does billing well matter more than quality work? Just started in the spring as midlevel.
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Can someone from ACN tell me how the new maternity leave policy works? Contacted HR, read the policy but an confused if you get the 16 weeks plus FMLA, then your PTO if you want to take that.
Anyone have the CFF from the AICPA and willing to share their studying/exam experience? Curious about required effort, study plans, exam structure, overall opinions of the cert. Thanks!

Pros and cons of group emails for client groups?

Hi Recruiters, could you share thoughts on ballpark or range of base/bonus comp for Principal-level benefits consultant at AON/Lockton/Mercer/WTW? 8 years in industry, mid-market clients, based out of DC metro region.
Has anyone switched from Big 4 to product companies ? Any advice ? How long does it take? I am looking for data engineer or data analyst track. Does big 4 experience matter?
Who has the link to the comp survey??
Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
Opinion: What are the best cities [not necessarily states] to be a teacher? Looking at factors like salary, cost of living, activities for families, benefits, diversity, training, etc...
