Getting my sister and her fiance a trip to the Caribbean in January as an engagement gift. Looking for a nice island with all inclusive options (so they don't have to go out of pocket). They're both vaccinated, and looking for a place that wouldn't place onerous travel restrictions on them (ideally needing nothing but proof of vax). Any recommendations?
What does vacation time look like outside of the United States? (Pls share where you live) When I was young, my family lived abroad and we were able to go on long vacations - sometimes as long as 6 weeks. My dad was an engineering consultant and we were by no means loaded with cash. It seemed to me that going on vacation for a long period of time was the norm in places like South America and Europe. Is this still true? I’d love to be able to do the same kind of things for my own kids one day.
Can someone explain how the Fly to the Finish challenge works for United 1K? The main thing I am confused about is whether the qualification is based on total PQP or only on PQP earned within the promotional period (Aug 8th - Nov 30). If total, I am already past based on the PQP they granted at the beginning of the year

Hi there. Seems like my current agency is starting to think about sending us back into the office. I know some people may not agree, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working from home and don’t have plans to stop. That being said, I’m interested in hearing if there are reputable pharma agencies that are fully remote? Thanks in advance!

Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?

Is losing a parent supposed to hurt this much? Doesn't feel natural. Depressing is not the word, it's worse. 😞
Received a job offer that was same title and pay. After hearing more about the position, I felt that it was more senior. Asked if they were open to bringing me on as a senior, and they happily agreed….. except when I got the new offer, it was still the original salary lol. I don’t want to come off as greedy, but this feels odd. I really love the place and the people I’ve met, but this gives me doubts
Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved.

Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
Hello everyone, Does anyone use 12.9 iPad (with a magic keyboard) as a “second workstation”? For example: lightweight typing machine when you need to work on an email or draft a document, or just join a conference call. My primary machine is MacBook Pro 16 but it’s a bit balky and I’d prefer not to take it with me when I’m leaving for a vacation.

Just had the worst interview of my life… i don’t know if it’s because it’s my time if the month, but I was overcome with nerves… and now all i feel like doing is punching a wall. I know I could be positive and maybe I’m being hard on myself due to Mother Nature but…
