Best portable monitor for work laptop? Looking for a second screen to use when working on the couch, on vacation, etc.
My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?

What companies offer amazing employee benefits? I just started looking for a remote recruiter role. I have tried applying for companies like Google, Meta, Microsoft, but have not had any luck. I am wondering if there are any smaller companies that I may not know about, have great benefits and less competitive to get into. For example, I know UK companies have great PTO benefits, and I know of some companies that pay 100% of their employees benefits. TIA

Has anyone considered making the move to the corporate world? I work in admin for my nonprofit right now so I make a decent amount (53k) my benefits are unbeatable. PTO & sick time PLUS self care days. Flexibility. Etc. the one thing we’re lacking is structure and honestly im burnt out and overwhelmed with my work load and I know I could be getting paid around 10-15k more for similar work. Anyone gone to corporate and regretted it? Loved it?
How does your firm deal with underperforming associates? We are crazy busy but have a couple first-years on vacation, 50-100 hours per month, and thinking we are a "lifestyle" firm. I don't want to just fire them, at least not yet, but I want to see a change. How many second chances do you give? How many months under budget?
Got an offer from another big4 on Thurs. Scheduled a call with MD on Fri bcoz the next Mon was my planned PTO. MD had an idea what it was about but didn’t wanna join. Sent text msg so that we could talk on the phone(since this is the MD’s preferred way of communication) No response. I came back from PTO the next Thurs and pinged the MD right away to talk and was ghosted. turned in my notice on Friday. MD then scheduled a call with me on my last day with the firm. Thoughts on this MD’s behavior?
Is it selfish that I'm considering a personal vacation over seeing family for the holidays? My parents and siblings are all healthy and happy and I saw them at Thanksgiving, and this is my first single Christmas. I'd really rather book a flight to somewhere warm from Christmas Eve-New Years and spend the holiday on a beach with a book. Should I just suck it up and take a vacay in the spring?
Hi guys - I need advice. I found my ideal bridal shower spot but the price is on the upper end of my budget. It would be worth it if I could get the place to throw in an extra side (usually + $5pp) or SOMETHING additional to help justify the price. Any advice on how to ask for this??
Considering quitting after the holidays. I don’t have anything else lined up but my energy, creativity, and passion have been totally drained this year. Finances are not a concern...Contd
