Folks on H-1B, do you really need to be in your home office (or within commutable distance during COVID) 1 day per week? How strictly is this enforced, if at all? Thank you!
Got offer letter from Cognizant with joining location pune, can someone please confirm what all location exists in pune.. any in magarpatta. Are they providing WFH for now?
Ladies I need your support. I very recently got laid off due to COVID. I did not see that coming since weve been winning business, my AD and I have been part of that. To add insult to injury im on a visa. If I dont find anything, I'll leave soon... if you add my time spent as a student, ive been in this country for over 4 years. Its my home now. This job was so difficult to get to begin with, youd be surprised at how almost no one likes hiring CWs from non english speaking countries (cont)
Just lost my grandfather because of covid and one of my best friends because of depression today. Not being able to cry and feel very normal. What do I do? How do I grieve?
Bench for 2 months due to covid, 3 projects in a row canceled. Promo year. End of Q2 is year end. Util most likely to be 16% under target. Whats likely to happen me year end if perf till now was good?
Present value of FUTURE EARNINGS. Everyone, the market is looking at 1 year+ from now. Covid is not lasting forever — it’s now priced in.
Wifey got second covid vaccine shot today. Hope to get normal life soon everywhere.🤞 & ✌️
Should I shop at Charles Tyrwhitt? Any experiences to share? Looking for some smarter WFH outfits.
Ladies at MBB who had children, did you find it difficult to balance WLB? Currently 26 and hoping to have kids in the next 2-3 years but I’m worried that traveling (post COVID) and poor WLB will wreak havoc on my mental health.
Good evening, anyone know of mid to senior level HRBP opportunities? Open to remote and/or opportunities in FL, CA, GA, NC areas. Any insight would be appreciated.TIA
Hi 🐟! A mix of a bad project with lack of boundaries in the WFH setting has pushed me too far. Axiety, difficulty sleeping; skipping meals; etc. Anyone has tips on how to establish boundaries as a junior in these difficult times?
It took mandatory WFH for people to realize that internet should be treated as a utility like gas water and electricity and not something that can be monopolized at $100 for 100mbs.
Wardrobe check: with WFH a new norm, many of us are wearing pajamas, or underwear (hopefully no less). What do you have in your business casual wardrobe?
Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so ￼easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.
How are you ladies dealing with social life and navigating the uncomfortable conversations around COVID protocols before you meet up? What do you do if the people in your friend group have very different ideas around what constitutes an acceptable level of risk?
Any other women burnt out ? Working long hours ? Now looking at virtual school for kids ? (I realize this is affecting men and women both - but at least in my household I handle the brunt of the kids school stuff.) is anyone’s company doing anything helpful to keep you balanced or is your workload even heavier since COVID ? Is back-up childcare even a thing ? Or should I just be quiet and grateful I have any type of job right now ?
Is the coronavirus ageist?
My doctor's think I have Covid I got started on meds on Tuesday. My worst symptom honestly is fatigue I go to bed at 6pm every night and feel like I could take mutiple naps throughout the day. When will I start feeling better? I can't keep sleeping so much.
My client made me an offer in a city I’m not excited about and know no one. But I absolutely love the company, the people, and I know I would be happy with good pay and work-life balance...(cont)
I love my job, but have fallen into a tailspin of anxiety, depression and doubt over the past few weeks. How do you guys cope with mental health issues and work?

Need some fresh meal options. Best hip spot to eat dinner in midtown / surrounding? Doesn’t need to be fancy, just delicious with atmosphere. (Killer cocktails is a plus) 🙏

Did anyone ever had instance of sciatica? Its unbearable pain. Doc prescribed muscle relaxers and pain meds but is there anything else that can help alleviate the pain?
Are you guys finding work? How are you feeling?
My father passed away a few years ago and my mom is actively looking for another partner now. I am open to her finding someone but she is going about it in a dangerous way. Scammers are reaching out to her via WhatsApp pretending to be an ideal man and she responds to unknown numbers all the time. We’ve proven that 5 guys are fake with definitive proof (eg google review imaging, inconsistent name & pic on various sites, sketchy bg). She won’t listen to me & I am super worried. Cont
Am I the only one that thinks using the word ask as a noun is appalling, I absolutely cringe when someone says I have an ask. I mean I loose focus for about 3 seconds after I hear that, it’s so distracting, for me at least. How do these phrases get so popular? 🤮 is it just me?
had a first round for experience A role at BCG NE office on friday when can i expect to hear my results?

How do i buy floki inu?
I am a H1B visa holder. I recently shifted employers. With my previous employer, I have a visa stamping that is valid till Aug 2022. My current employer, the H1B is valid till 2024 but I do not have a stamping that indicates the new employer's name.
Do I still need to get my visa stamped if I visit my home country prior to Aug 2022?
Secondly, will this be my last attempt to get a visa? What happens post-2024 - should I have an I-140 by then?
I feel a bit lost in my career and would love to talk to someone/get advice or have a mentor who is already an established ACD or CD in art. If anyone is interested in helping me out with a google coffee chat lmk. Or can point me in the direction to find a mentor, I would absolutely love that.
