Anyone here from the UK? I'm on a H1B and ain't been home in a fair while. Was hoping to get back for Christmas, given it looks like travel is opening up (at some point?) In November, but my immigration counsel seemed dubious on how easy it would be to renew the H1B to get back to the States in a reasonable time. While country looks like bedlam atm tbh.

1. We should wait until the results of the IRS audit to know the full picture 2. The IRS have been very unfair to the President 3. Why is the NYT releasing this information now? Why not six months ago? 4. All this shows is that President Trump knows how to outsmart the IRS like any billionaire 5. President Trump donates his salary 6. He had a loss in 2016 because of the terrible Obama economy 7. Sleepy Joe has dementia!

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Working remotely from Canada on tourist visa? I am planning to take a 15 day trip to Canada from US but most of that time I will be at my relatives place and not going out much. I was thinking I'll work from there for a week and take rest off? Tourists are generally not authorized to work but this is remote work and my employer has no offices in Canada.
Are you guys working remotely? How do you think this will affect us? Will executives find we are no longer essential? I’m happy we are WFH but am nervous our jobs will be the first cuts made.

I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
Recently lateraled and at my former firm one of my female coworkers just got back from maternity leave. The firm has a billable requirement of 2000 hours and those who go on parental leave have a prorated requirement based on leave taken. She just told me that the bonus is also prorated so even though she met the reduced requirement she will only get 60% of the bonus. Is this standard?
