Those areas are nice. Or near Lake Jeanette if you want to be closer to Greensboro proper.

I grew up there but it’s been so long so I can’t really comment too much on school performance these days. I just know the northern part of the county is nicer so probably has the better school options.

Pretty rundown area

Just moved from Houston to Asheville. Welcome to North Carolina! You’ll love it here.

Can provide more details if needed, but if an employee is constantly coughing at work (small retail establishment), is it okay to ask them for a doctor's note stating they aren't contagious? They're claiming it's due to allergies, but I've gotten several confidential concerns from employees and customers alike due to the current enviornment.

Has anyone else in PDM received one of these “you’re selected to be an Onboarding Advisor” emails? 2 of my coworkers got one and they seem to be expected to advise new hires on how to do resumes, skills, staffit, DTE, introduce them to their network, send welcome emails, checkin with them multiple times and answer their onboarding questions. Seems like a lot of extra firm work when PDM is not supposed to be required to do firm work…. Wondering if anyone knows about this new requirement.

Hello! I am currently a Technical Curriculum Developer (TCD) 1, making 70k, and I’m coming up on my first year with the company. There’s talk of “moving me up” to TCD 2. Is there room for salary negotiation when being promoted internally? What does it look like getting a title change? I’ve done a couple big projects (and continuing to do so) and taking on responsibilities of the Sr Developer. I’ve never been in a position like this so I don’t know what to expect, is it silly to ask, etc. Ty!
