So the county I live in and the surrounding 3 counties have a total of 120 deaths from COVID. Yet we are still on full lockdown. I really don’t think a blanket lockdown is the best method.
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
How do coronavirus symptoms start? My mom is having trouble breathing today and we're don't want to assume that's what is it? Not sure if we should go to the emergency room or wait it out.
Anyone get a low grade fever for a few days and freak out thinking it’s covid? I had one for 2 days. Today is day 3 and the fever seems to be gone but my body is so tired and I have no motivation to work or think if that makes sense. Just wanna see if anyone has had similar experiences. Only other symptom is inflamed tonsils
I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly
Simple question hopefully.. do you prescribe albuterol or duonebs for stable outpatient covid patients?
I bet the US Government would get Covid under control pretty damn quickly if major corporations suspended campaign contributions in light of the economic environment.
Does anyone currently have parents in the US, visiting from India? I am debating if it’s safer for them to travel back home now before Coronavirus gets worse here in the US.
Rag & Bone is taking 70% off a whole bunch of things online. The founder’s letter about this is very well done imo: https://www.rag-bone.com/covid-19-hub/
How do you deal with family in India believing and spreading every false rumor/forwarded message on WhatsApp? I stopped correcting them a few years ago when I realized it was bad for my relationship with them, but the forwards nowadays especially related to Covid is outright dangerous (and obviously false when read by an educated person). Very worried about this
Am I a shitty friend? Backing out of friend’s bachelorette trip next month because it is a flight and house with 10ppl. Plus restaurants and bars... I feel bad, but COVID?!
What are the signs that your marriage is over? None of us cheated but lately we both are very distant from each other. Sex is off. Nearly no intimacy. Every weekend we meet our friends have fun and that’s it. I don’t remember when is the last time we went on a trip as a couple (even before covid) I keep planning but don’t see any inputs from him. We don’t go on dates or dinner alone, its always with friends. When I see my other couple friends I feel we are not there anymore 😔
is there any way to extend my NTS without emergency situations? I randomly got added to a busy season and need to travel. wondering if covid is enough to argue we dont feel safe attending the exam in person. any success stories?
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
Have an Amex Blue Cash Preferred Card. Because of Covid, a professional convention I was going to attend was cancelled. Paid $500 out of pocket & won’t be refunded. Anything I can do?
What it is incredible, is how we are still seeing new types of presentation of persons infected with Coronavirus
KPMG’s 401(k) plan is underwhelming and it appears that D may be giving its retirement plan participants a raw deal as well. Good ol’ B4 shenanigans… https://si-interactive.s3.amazonaws.com/prod/plansponsor-com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/15115134/SinghvDeloitteComplaint.pdf
About to start my first PM job after consulting. Any tips to get myself prepared and ramp up quickly? Books to read, courses to take, etc.? Currently doing ops consulting, no tech background.
Any ideas on fun team bonding events/games to improve culture in a new remote tech startup? Very small team with long work hours, we are trying to build a people culture but hard because we can’t see much of peoples personalities through Zoom meetings much.
I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.
Smart or not to move my 401k from Vanguard target fund entirely to SPY , or similar? Mid 20s
Multiple calls today with a male client who dominates conversations, cuts me off, asks follow up questions when I’m in the middle of a sentence etc. How do I show I'm the one in charge??
Does Deloitte renegotiate offered salary after showing appraisal letter and new salary from the current organization?
Recruiters are telling me positions in London are considered a higher role in other regions. Example, an Associate here, is a Sr. Associate in N/A. Senior Manager —> A Director. True?
I was offered the CEO position at a greenfield startup backed by a big firm to start from 0. Does anybody know what should I be looking for as a comp. package? they are offering equity % + salary $$$
I’ve been getting recruiter emails from Reference Point for some time now for a manager role. Anybody have insights into the salary bands for managers there?
Question for EY moms - my husband and I are thinking about starting a family soon, so I was looking up the parental leave policy to see what my options are. I know some firms have clawback clauses that require you to come back to work for a specific period of time or else you have to pay back the salary you received while on leave, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the EY policy. Does this mean EY doesn’t have a clawback clause for parental leave, or is it just hidden away somewhere? TIA!
Anyone have advice for verbalizing your value proposition? Not specific KPIs from projects, but general description of what you bring to the table? I’m an ex MBB generalist; I still struggle with this
My current H-1B with PwC expires in July 2023. I also have an approved I-140 from over a year ago. Green card isn’t close since I’m an Indian citizen. I’m switching jobs and wanted to check if the H-1B transfer with my new company will give me a fresh new 3 years (up until Oct 2024) or up until the end date of my current H-1B (July 2023). Recruiter isn’t sure and is checking with their immigration firm. I haven’t found anything definitely online to validate their answer when I get one. Thanks!
New auditor here, I see most auditors get booked for 10- 12 hours on engagements during busy season. But heard everyone’s working 65 hours to 100 hours a week during that time. Does that mean almost everyone is eating their hours in big four and midsize firms ? If you’re assigned for 12 hours daily, Monday to Friday, but actually working 15 hours and weekends, do you book 12 hours Monday to Friday ? Or the actual hours you worked including weekends ?
I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
Anyone gone part time at a new or existing agency? In interviews or HR, how do you broach the subject? I’d benefit greatly personally by wfh one day a week or the day off. I am burnt out at this pace
At the risk of sounding totally dumb, are holiday bonuses a thing? I know I am eligible for a fiscal year end bonus in March, but not sure if holiday bonuses are to be expected. Obviously it depends on the firm, but just curious if there’s a general norm.
Can someone please help me on how I can negotiate a higher salary, when a large component of my total compensation is linked to variable pay. I have cleared the final rounds of interview with a company, where the variable component is almost negligible and they're only willing to give a raise over my fixed compensation. PS The variable pay last year at my current firm was impacted due to onset of covid. :(
