What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
What have you done when you switch jobs and don’t qualify for FMLA or FFRCA and everyone in your household contracts COVID?
Coronavirus quarantine before and after
Heard a new term. Covid-concious. As in 'How Covid-concious are you?' to be mindful of someone's feelings towards the virus and the precautions they are taking, when speaking to them / near them.
I think it would help with the spread of Covid if workers were in the building only when neccessary. Not all employees need to be 40 hours, do their job n leave, with limited people n time
How is the city doing mask-wise? Just got back from FL where Covid doesn’t seem to exist anymore and I’m taken aback by all the masking around the city still (particularly outdoors).
Have anyone successfully negotiated down their rent due to Covid? I’m in NYC and my management has been very inflexible.
What have been your best covid19 pm practices?
Covid has been disruptive to not just the economy, job sector, social life but has also been a big PITA(pain in the ass) for the singles that are seeking or ready to get into a relationship. This bowl is to see if people would be open to just post their asl, and a few preferences they’d like to see to establish an emotional connect and use this as another dating app just to get in touch with other similar professionals
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Not to beat a dead horse - anyone get a cheaper rent lease renewal due to covid? Have people had rent go up?? How can we bargain here?
I wonder how many people are going to be hit with massive hospital bills as a result of COVID
Not against Texas Dems breaking quorum but it does look like the media is biased. Edited ty MD1
Austin only has 16 ICU beds available now. If you were thinking you didn’t need the vaccine because COVID was going away, please reconsider. Delta is kicking our asses.
My Covid antibody test was negative but I swear I had Covid before.....I don’t understand this virus
Does anyone else feel like Olympic campaigns are seriously subpar this year? (One exception being the skateboarding FB ads by Droga). Normally I feel like there are at least several great campaigns you see over and over and this year I literally can’t even bring many to mind. Wondering if the cause has been covid production restrictions, or less money pumped in due to fear of the games being cancelled, or brands feeling like the Olympics shouldn’t have even happened. Thoughts?
*PLEASE HELP* My parents send my younger siblings to a private school which has been hit badly by the coronavirus due to parents unenrolling their children for the next school year. In an effort to mitigate their losses, the principal requested many of the parents that kept their children in, my dad being one of them, to a one on one meeting. In that meeting he told parents to sign off documents that he said were related to schedule changes for the next school year. What they turned out to be...
This was posted somewhere else but seemed compelling enough to discuss…. The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of this belief is actually the whole point. (Cont.)
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
Hi 🐠 I have a job offer to leave consulting to go to a start up. It’s hardly a raise but I think the work is really cool. I have 2.5 YOE and think there is value in making this move for start up experience. Any thoughts from some older/wiser 🐠? Thank you!!
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
In South Philly, good spots to go out in the city? extra points for dives with groovy tunes
Need some advice on the best way to get a referral. I’ve had networking calls, but they don’t seem to go anywhere. Not sure if it’s ok to just ask or something else
Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
To the two Publicis guys sitting in front of me on this American Airlines flight to Chicago, stop bragging about never taking a sick day and coming in even when you have the flu... 🙄
Hey fishes. I've recently moved to a new project where people aren't friendly. I know we're paid to work and not all colleagues are friendly. But, somehow I just feel very bored here. Its just work, work and work. Is this normal? PS : This is just my second project(~2 yrs exp) and wanted to know if this is common across the industry.
Creatives, what are your job KPIs at work? Like during your evaluation what helps you build a case to justify asking for a promotion, salary raise or bonus? It seems to be that when it comes to account department it’s pretty straightforward to measure sales.

Can you buy delta global upgrade certificates from people or have other people apply to reservation? If yes, happy to do business (for my honeymoon!)
My boss often catches my careless grammatical/spelling mistakes in my communications, so I created a proofreading rubric and even had a colleague proofread it. I finally got the draft perfect today, but forgot to turn off “markup” on track changes. Manager called me out on it, and won’t let me live it down. I work so hard on it and feel incompetent and like a massive failure. Lesson learned. 😞I now feel like I have to overcompensate and prove my worth through other means
Hi everyone. I am having a rough time with morale at my company. The issues can be traced back directly to senior leadership, and I have rolled up the feedback and issues time and time again. I am no longer sure what to tell employees who come to me for help. We just launched an engagement survey (my last ditch effort to get senior leaders to LISTEN). Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?
