I am having the hardest time in my life. Depression and anxiety have become unmanageable from the pressure to bill with only a ten vacation day policy. I don’t sleep anymore. I cry every single day. I have pushed through so much mentally to keep going, To keep logging in and billing but after two years the burnout is real. I have no more will do anything. I’m mentally burnt. My body physically aches from the lack of sleep and pure state of stress I’m constantly in. Any encouragement? Something?
My last day at my current job is Wednesday and I’m not starting my new job until 10/4. My health insurance ends on midnight Wednesday. What should I do for those 10 days in between? Seems ridiculous to pay for COBRA for only 10 days.
Looking to get my father a birthday gift. He has always been a Rolex, stainless steel only, guy. I have a budget of up to 40k which opens the door to other brands. Vacheron oversees immediately comes to mind, but wanted to get the bowl’s thoughts. (He currently has a nautilus, Batman, Kermit, sea dweller, luminor, el primero).
Is it possible to pass REG in a month of studying? I am going to take vacation about 2 weeks before the exam as well.

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
For the first time in 5 years in this job I truly love my team, my manager and the work I do. Client really likes our team and is nothing but helpful. It happens! Wish that for everyone here. TGIF
My firm has a reduced hours policy, and I know people who have negotiated reduced hours after having kids. I do not have kids yet (we recently started trying), but I’m seriously considering asking for a reduced hours arrangement (partly for future kids, but partly for sustainability of the career, mental health, physical health, etc.). The written policy doesn’t require it, but do I have to give a “reason” when asking for reduced hours? Anyone have experience with this?
Went on a legitimately amazing date but my project just ended today and will not be back in that city. How do I end things on a good note so she doesn't think I just wanted to hook-up?
