She also got laid off b.c of Covid and has been in a bit of a rut and I want to make her feel better and have a great birthday. Shes an amazing wife and mom and I want her to have a great birthday. Appreciate the help fellow fish
Decided not to change my last name to my husband’s after getting married last year. I’ve been practicing law for over a decade, my name is my brand and I’m simply not interested in changing it. My husband is completely supportive of me, but my family is NOT - they continue to misname me over my protest and at my recent bridal shower (was postponed for covid) made me open up in front of everyone a number of personalized gifts etched with the married name I don’t have or want. Will this ever stop?
Has anyone gotten a green light to expense home office set up due to COVID? My firm allowed for $200 only (purchase of monitor or docking staton).
Has anyone exited commercial banking into sales/tech/corp dev/other? I have 5 years in global sales and marketing at a major airline + 2 years as a senior commercial banker (fell back on MBA network in 2020 when covid got real). Current base is 105k + 30% bonus. Starting to think about the next move and would like to leverage the experience from both worlds instead of climbing the ladder in commercial banking. Appreciate any thoughts.

Which certification will help and where to get it?
Total YOE- 4years

Here’s a thought. I have had emails from every airline/hotel/store etc telling me about their CoVid19 preparedness. Anyone had anything from their insurance companies which you all pay to? No!
Optum compensation is very low, we received 3% to 10% in my team irrespective of rating 3-5.
Our team couldn't hire a manager for the whole damn year.
I've been working here for past 1 year. Don't join Optum Global Solutions.
When I joined OGS during COVID, I was asked to collect laptop from office, on my own expenses.
No welcome gifts either.
Waiting to resign after 31st March else they won't pay my performance bonus as well.
I recently accepted a new job which I’m super excited about and has most of what I was looking for in the next step in my career - they only draw back is they are requiring me to come into the office 2 days a week. That is a huge change for me as I started my career during COVID and have always been remote. I’m an introvert with social anxiety and ADHD so remote life treated me well. Any tips on RTO while managing social anxiety?
BREAKING: Gov. Newsom calls for the home isolation of all people 65 and older in California due to the coronavirus. Is everyone just okay with these suspension of individual rights?
After a year of searching I've finally found the silver lining to COVID: the end of Evangelicals that refute vaccines but like to play with snakes.

Anyone have any good resources on taxable fringe benefits for COVID issues? People are starting to ask about making remote work permanent and I'd like to be ready.
Do you guys think going back to traveling for work will be postponed even longer if the majority of states cannot keep their COVID cases under control? Or do you think we will be pushed to travel sometime next year anyway?
For this that got Covid and need to take PCR, how long did it take for you to show negative? 90 days?
CANADIANS- my parents are in Richmond, BC now and looking for a COVID testing site. The only options I find charge CAD$395. They are Canadians but not residents if it makes a difference. Recommendations appreciated!
Since the COVID thing started I’ve seen a lot of posts bout people realizing they are w/ the wrong partner/spouse. 4 us single folks, what qualities do u wish u focused on instead?
How much travelling do you think consulting will be post covid19? More remote or back to normal

Damn it covid

So I’ve been talking to this guy I met online for about a week. We’ve talked on the phone twice and both conversations were great. We’ve also been texting everyday. I noticed that he kinda sucks at texting. He doesn’t ask good questions or seem to know how to keep the conversation going. I’ve tried to think about whether it’s because he’s just not interested or just simply sucks at texting and I really think it’s the latter but I’m open to what you guys might think.
