I’ve been having a hard time during the pandemic WFH. I’ve been diagnosed with major depression & anxiety. I don’t interact much with others for work and have been able to keep this to myself. We have yr end reviews coming up. I know it will be a bad one for me. I’ve invested in 2x/week therapy (at a financial loss) to improve my health. I’m feeling better. Is there anything that a staff could do/say at reviews that would cause you to give them a 2nd chance? I love it here and want to improve.

Don’t wait for the review. Proactively reach out to your coach and relationship leader (or whatever is comparable at your firm) and explain the situation. You should also talk to your teams and make sure you understand any feedback and have clear goals to demonstrate improvement. Everyone is struggling in some way right now and mental health is health. People should hopefully be sympathetic but if you’ve already taken steps to improve your situation and your performance, it will look better to communicate that ahead of time instead of in response to a bad review.

FWIW, I’m a “high performer” and my coach had to sit me down a few weeks ago to tell me to get my shit together because my metrics look so bad (I am paraphrasing, the convo was nicer). Working from home has also been really challenging for me and my social life is nonexistent at this point because I live by myself, so you’re not alone. I’m proud of you for taking control of the situation. Hopefully you’ll be able to have a productive and positive conversation even if your review isn’t the best. Hang in there!

OK. 22 months into WFH, and I'm finally accepting that it's time to be a grownup. At least, on video calls. Dollar-for-dollar, what are the best camera, lighting, mic options? I'm not trying to look/sound best-in-class, just not like a total amateur that DGAF.

I’ve have had a mix of Chase Sapphire, Marriott and Amex cards for a while - since I traveled for work. Now moving to a remote role- focusing on 2 nice international family trips a year.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....
