All the no’s


Big No!

Absolutely not

Devils advocate: it's no worse in terms of destroying lives and keeping people down than credit scores 🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️

I don't think there is one yes and no on this question, it's just provocative.

If you for the societal impact of benchmarking, FOMO, toxity etc. Yes then it is bad. .

But it also created thousands of jobs, market place for people without technical skills enabling them to sell, one of the biggest communication apps in the world (WhatsApp/Messenger) etc.

Fair Point - the core fb product is a different question


Look at our society post social media and judge for yourself.

Is anything a good thing for society?

Or more specifically, is any tech company a good thing for society?

Questions for my fellow EAs out there:
1. How many of you travel for your job? If so, are there stipulations?
2. My team is having an 2-day offsite meeting in another city and many folks outside of our team are all traveling in for it. Some are only attending for an hour. My exec told me yesterday I couldn’t attend (after weeks of asking him), citing that we couldn’t have excessive hours of OT (maybe 4 hrs). I do not feel valued as a team member.
Should I bring it up or let it go?

Was bagging insulation in the attic and bagged some asbestos. It was flat on the floor, looks like a pipe cowling that’s was sliced open. I was careful and didn’t agitate it, rather slide it into the trash bag, but I’m freaking out a little. I wasn’t wearing adequate protection (only N95 mask). Guessing there’s nothing I can do about it now.

TLDR: is there a way to embed something in a PPT where the PPT’s creator will get notified/ can see that I downloaded, opened, and printed the PPT from a personal computer?

Probably not the correct bowl (please lmk if theres a better one). I need to print something housed on a work laptop but can’t unless I email it to my personal, open doc, and print.

It doesn’t have client information but it is labeled “confidential”. can’t print at office bc I have Covid


Any thoughts on the BlackRock LifePath index fund?

Just realized I signed an offer with a 5year 401k vesting period and kicking myself for it (previous employers didn't have one so I wasn't aware to look out for this).

Unpopular opinion: I don’t understand why everyone is always freaking out about Amazon’s “PIP culture” and getting PIP’d. I’ve been here 5.5 years and literally never once even remotely been considered for a PIP and I don’t work that hard. Like, is it really that hard to just do your job better than 5% of the company?
