I’m fine with states asking for federal assistance when needed. We’re a union regardless of party. But it really bothers me that Texas banned masks and did everything it possibly could to encourage the spread of disease in order to score political points, yet now expects the feds to come clean up their mess.
What is benefit of buying points on house mortgages. What are cons. When does it make sense to buy pt. Being offered 2 pts on 400k mortgage for 8 k. This will reduce 30 yr interest rate to 2.85.
A google horror story... Lots of data here, but the DE&I data points are around harassment, processing inappropriate behavior at work, & how some large companies may handle issues. Plus - Emotional investment in a workplace tends to negatively impact a person’s perception of and reaction to how they are treated within that workplace. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/07/opinion/google-job-harassment.html

Need advice on creating proposal for separating from my firm where I am a partner and have practiced 20 years. Leaving to solo a boutique practice. Would ideally like to preserve the referral relationship for matters outside my practice area but don’t know if that’s possible. Timeline? Negotiation points?

Started as a BDR and got moved into partnerships within the same org. Comp was initially 75k CAD with OTE 120K CAD. New comp for new partner channel I am carving out, I am offered same base but guaranteed 75% quota attainment payout. Is this a fair comp? Would love any constructive thoughts/points on this. Company is in eComm vertical
What's the best way to answer the "tell me about yourself" question? It makes me so nervous... I never know where to start or what type of points to hit and then I lose confidence in the rest of the interview because I'm worried about how badly that answer went.
For your resume, how many bullet points under your XP with your firm straight out of college is too many? I’m a senior and don’t have anything else since college that’s relevant. Also, how do you feel about a small section above the bullets detailing the position (where the bullets are more about your achievements in the position)
Can someone explain why my points fluctuate from week to week? If I’m staying at the same hotel for the same amount of days.
Can anyone describe Amazon’s culture for an associate corporate counsel,based on team? I’ve read a number of comments on this app and across the internet about the company in general but the individuals never specify what team they’re referring to. I’ve heard from two corp counsel that AWS doesn’t have the best WLB but Prime Video does. I’d be interested to hear what this bowl has to add. The more data points I can gather before interviewing, the better.
I gave interview for EY for performance test engineer and scored good points in technical round. Now my HR discussion is pending since last 15 days. Any idea how long will it take to get this done along with the offer letter as today 22 nd July is my last working day in current company. Should i wait for the offer letter or join other company from which I am holding offer letter right now?
Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?
I’m a Jnr Associate, today I’ve had a Senior colleague (who was incorrect on a couple of points) say to me that I am “over thinking” and “don’t panic” — in each instance I was not over thinking or panicking. It felt like a way to shut me down, or to patronise me. Don’t get me wrong, I am a bit of an over thinker which why I feel that it was deliberate the choice of words. Can anyone relate / does anyone know how to present more confidently (but without being antagonistic or confrontational?)
Texas is coined a football powerhouse, but I’m having a hard time finding teams/events for my elementary school student. Can anyone point me in the right direction in the loop or in the Galleria area? Bonus points for facilities/areas in the loop where Black boys and men play/gather. I’d love my son to have that sense of community as he’s the only Black kid in his class, and we haven’t met many Black families at the closest local park to us. Black is not a deal breaker though! Please share.
I am in the negotiation phase as only 30 days left for me to join any organization. I want to get the best offer so that the HR gets impressed and convinced to offer the maximum budget.

I have never seen anyone display as much grace as Barbara Walters when her co-anchor (Harry Reasoner I think) was so dismissive and rude to her; she just smiled and kept doing her job. If I end up with even half that level of class, I will consider it to be a win

I received an offer for 80k to work as a desktop engineer for TCS at one of their client’s locations. However, I have seen poor reviews for working at TCS and I’d like to get some feedback from anyone currently or had previously worked for that company. What is the environment like and has anyone been in a situation where the contract with TCS and the client ended and had trouble with TCS finding them a new role at the same pay?

I am a ReactJS developer (frontend) with 3.8 years of experience. I currently switched my company but they don't have an opening for ReactJS and kept me on a bench for 3 months and they are telling me now to learn AEM technology and work on the AEM project for now.
They hired me for a package of 16 LPA.
So my questions are is it a good technology to learn? Should I say yes and have a career in it?
Will I get the same package like ReactJS or less? What is future if compared with React?
