Did you keep your older child home from daycare when your second one was a newborn? I was thinking to at least keep my daughter home for the first two weeks so she can help bond with the baby , but my husband is worried that’s too much time away from daycare for her..that she’s already going to be confused and flooded with emotions that she should have her routine yet. I’m also a little worried about covid and any illness getting into our house with him being born in January.
Been frustrated with my job search. Just found out one of my best friends has been hiding the fact that his entire department was laid off 4 months ago. Thankful for my sitch, gonna focus on helping.
One of my former employees we fired for poor performance is bad-mouthing us on social media. Should I put out our version of the story?
Hey all, plan to publish an article based on personal predictions of COVID19 outcomes / impacts / implications to the world. Want to co-author this with someone for better visibility and insights. DM!
Unprofessional post- I’m seeing my new coworkers in person for the first time this weekend because I was a remote hire. But I have gained so much weight since covid that I feel like people are going to be disappointed when they see me in person. Because my professional headshot is from 2 years ago and I don’t look like that anymore. What do I do? I really want to cancel.
Has anyone ever been fired or let known they are fired from people consultant or is it always a partner? Just curious.
How have y’all balanced boundaries with extended family during covid? With the holidays coming up, are you going to skip any gatherings? What if your boundaries are less stringent than your wife’s?
Just got laid off and want to move back to the east coast. Any advice for either before I'm officially kicked out of the office or for the new job hunt?
Can you be fired if on medical marijuana if used for medical reasons with prescription if company policy does not specify whether it's not allowed in recreational use only or simply just not allowed?
My brother was fired for “performance” last week after 1 YOE at a boutique. He suspects the real reason is CV19. He is quite down, and feels his career is over. 🐠-any words of advice to offer him?
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
My bf was laid off and switched industries during the pandemic and now I make 2x what he does (we used to be the same). He makes constant comments about it and clearly feels like a loser. How to help him feel less insecure / are we just doomed?
Big layoffs at CP+B today, I hear. ☹️
Would you rather receive low hike+ bonus or risk a whole bunch of people (including you) get laid off?
I'm home grown and know I'm below market...always eases my mind when potential for layoffs arise. I don't try to get paid less for this reason, but it is nice.
Anyone else’s office staying 100% open even after someone tests positive for covid, or is it just mine?
It seems like a lot of people, at least on FB, jump from big 4 to big 4. Is the grass really greener? Doesn't seem that common within MBB.
Shot in the dark - is anyone willing to refer an A with 2 YOE to Bain for an AC role? I've reached out to several folks via LinkedIn, unfortunately no responses as of now. I'm happy to share my resume & go through an initial discussion before you decide on referring. Thank you! Bain & Company
Can we use work phones abroad? I am taking a vacation but need to take a client call around the same time I land at destination. Can I just dial in to the call business as usual assuming It’s 1 hr?
Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process. I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be? One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.
How are y’all planning your consulting exit strategies? Do you have a specific role in mind to aim toward? Are you building specific skills outside of billable work?
