I left after I made senior. I used to go home to walk my dog for lunch (45 mins all in as I lived very close to the office) and people always made comments about it. It was definitely a factor in me leaving.

I already get nothing done in an open office, add dogs I would definitely get nothing done.

I love my dog.

It would be a shit show having a couple hundred dogs in some of the larger offices. Based on my walk around the neighborhood, half of them are unlikely to be trained or well behaved.

I agree. If you have ever been to a doggy daycare you have seen the ones that just bark nonstop. Would be awful for an office environment without ground rules

Nope would still leave

I would be a yes as well. It’s one of the only reasons I consider leaving - unable to incorporate such a large part of my life into the other large part of my life.

I really love how Apple cares about our data so much and it's going to use ads to make money off our data. I'm happily sharing my data with Apple.

I don't understand why Google and Facebook have to sell our data. They should use the Apple model instead.

Almost cried on the flight back home - had been working 100hr weeks and just been told to work both weekend too. Going forward is 19hr per day for another week ... I crash everyday and debate if I should just quit the job. Feeling helpless and don’t know whom in the company should I talk to

Question to the community based on a hypothesis:

Do you find companies today interview without empathy, over-valuing technical skill, pressure tests, and first impressions?

A follow-up to this, if you’ve been hired by a company based on your skills, ability to perform under pressure, and first impression- did you feel you made the right decision once settled in your role?

I’m analyzing the evolution of interviews and a human-centered approach.

Question for you HR enthusiasts. If you were originally rejected for an internal audit position. Then they say they’d like to give you a call a few days later (I’m thinking the other candidate ...

How do you guys with off year-end busy seasons do it?! I have a 3/31 this year, but I got picked up on some rough 12/31’s too. It’s just now hitting me that I’m not even halfway through, and it’s possible the 3/31 is worse than the 12/31’s! I’ve know there are definitely people that have way more than just 5 months of busy season, I just don’t know how to stay sane😂
