My best friend threw me a surprise (zoom) baby shower...she put SO much time & effort into coordinating everyone, making it special, coming up with games (and giving out prizes out of her own pocket). I want to send her something as a thanks, but not sure what. Any ideas? Obviously nothing like salon/spa/restaurant gift card due to COVID, which would have been what I’d give her in normal times.
Why is it so hard for me to willingly give money to my broke friend, but when the market dips and I "lose" a few thousand, it doesn't affect me at all. Donating is a monthly expense for me, but there's just something about giving this friend money that doesn't sit well with me.
So with places like LA requiring masks indoors again and with the delta variant going around, will going into BCG offices ever be permanently optional?
Tips for interviewing at Amazon? Recruiter contacted me for a position I didn't apply for and set up an interview without any context. They probably got my resume for other positions I applied for I presume. They provided me with a few links for how to interview at Amazon and gave me the linked in of who I would be doing my phone interview with. Any help tips would be appreciated. TIA

Deloitte my S&A offer has 23 vacation days. Will I actually be able to use any of that? Does it count against my utilization? What’s the cultural expectation around using PTO?
Au revoir SPG. It’s been a good ride. How many of you will be looking to ditch Marriott (or already have)? To which program are you moving ?
I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field. My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!

Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
On my current project we are working directly for the ceo and coo. I tend to think that whenever you present something to someone at this level, it needs to look good. Even if it’s an early draft things need to be professional. I don’t want to lose their attention or our credibility by showing bad stuff. My teammates on the other hand think it’s ok to show rough work because we are “co-creating” and they are normal people too.... who do you side with
