We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Did many firms give raises during covid or have firm addressed upcoming raises/bonuses that may have been forgone? Trying to get a general consensus
Most engaging webinar/professional session you’ve attended during COVID? Thinking of ways to creatively engage people on a research paper by organization just published. Would love tips on session structure and even tech platform
20 year road warrior here. My wife & I made it work through teamwork & commitment. My weekends were spent at home. Doing family things. I know a guy who (pre COVID) traveled every week, yet found time to do 200 mile weekend biking trips with his ‘crew’. Almost every weekend. His family vacations always seemed to include a 500 mile bike race or some other extreme event. He is now doing this in Europe (according to IG). How do spouses put up with that?
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!
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Can I apply infosys after 6 months after rejecting their offer ? Should I use a new Email ID? N.B. I have rejected the offer due to parental COVID infection on middle of second wave. I need a long leave which may not be possible while serving notice period. Informed and mailed HR with proper documents.HR accepted the same politely.
Why exactly people are so scared of Covid? Even if you catch it, very likely you will recover. What am I missing?
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??

Will effective WFH policies stick at your place, or even in our industry post-coronavirus?
Heard Wharton announced a 20% increase in applicants this R1 (most probably due to effects of covid). Do people think that next year will be just as bad—and if so, how bad (e.g. still 10% increase relative to normal year)?
Pre-Covid - being told that they can give you a 2.5% raise only due to limit policies - does that mean it's true, or that you did a terrible job and only getting a slight increase because you asked?
Trump supporters, do any of you really believe Louis Gohmert got coronavirus from wearing a mask?

Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
Anyone mind sharing their average monthly electricity (kWh) usage since covid? I’m in southern CA, 2k sq ft house w/pool, 2 adults working from home (no kids). Summer months are around 1,700 kWh; other 9-10 months average around 400 kWh. We replaced HVAC post-summer and hope to see improvement this summer. Thanks in advance.
Instead of endless free handouts to illegal immigrants, wide open borders with Mexico, D&I posturing and Juneteenth, this is what I would have liked to see: Appreciation for our Covid Essential workers, who just had the worst 1+ year of their life. Now this is a government that I can respect.
Anyone actually keep their PHR active? I got my cert in 2013 and have done nothing since.
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis/IBM/Deloitte or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks!
Does Cognizant pay out at its bonus at 100% (cash and stock components) for Senior Directors? Joining as a Senior Director soon...
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

30+ single ladies: how do we lead better lives as singles? I’ve dated a lot of egoistic narcissistic jerks in the last few years. Losing hope that there are decent men left in their late 30s.. I want to have a meaningful life but don’t know if I’d be able to raise a child by myself. I don’t have many friends in the areas I move around for work. Dreading the day when I won’t have any support system. How should single women approach life in 30s when bio clock’s ticking and its all darkness..
Could anyone provide the relative comp range for a Manager - Supply Chain & Ops position at Accenture ?
I’m currently in biglaw and interviewing for an in house role. I had an interview with HR where they asked my salary expectations and I basically said I’m flexible but the opportunity is what’s important to me. They then said their targeting x amount for the role and I said that was in the ballpark of what I would consider. Does anyone have experience with this line of questioning from HR and has anyone negotiated for higher than the number they initially said they were targeting?
