What activities and hobbies have you picked up during covid-19? I find my typical activities getting more and more mind numbing the longer this drags on and am looking for some suggestions off the beaten path.
If Trump was right about COVID starting in a Wuhan lab, could... could he be right about other things? He might have actually been a stable genius after all.
I think some agencies are using Covid as a smokescreen for making adjustments that were needed previously, but would have caused a riot. Not all. Just some. Am I crazy?
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.

Just like how it was (or is) with all things COVID, how long do you think the protests and riots will carry on?
Has anyone gotten into arguments with family members over the science of COVID and taking the vaccine? I firmly believe that it ultimately is your decision whether to get vaccinated, but I’d also be remiss not to share why I think we should trust the science. I don’t think just sitting back and allowing another family to spew out far-right conspiracy theories to other family members is acceptable. And equally, I recognize what I’m doing may not be ok. Perhaps there isn’t an in between. 😒🥴
People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected
Getting ready to travel for a shoot. And the covid rules are hella confusing. If I am fully vaccinated do I still need to get a negative covid test to board the plane with major airlines?
Has anybody been engagement ring shopping in the last 6 months? Any recommendations on places that are taking (CDC-recommended) COVID precautions?
Thoughts on timing baby number 2? The original plan was two kids less than 4 years apart; I was planning on trying this summer, but decided to delay because COVID. My daughter just turned 3, and I'm back and forth between just giving in and trying now so they're more closely spaced, or waiting until there's a vaccine even though they'll be further apart in age than I'd like. Thoughts? I'm 31 so biologically I'm not in a huge rush but I'm really starting to feel the baby fever.
When do you know it’s time to move on to a new agency? I’m coming up on my first year and feeling very apathetic about my employer right now. It’s not that we haven’t produced great work or that my team gives negative vibes... but I feel an urge to move. I was feeling this pre-covid but after them not really doing much in response to blm and getting approached by a couple recruiters should I start biting? I know grass isn’t always greener but I kinda want to see for myself.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
I had to reject an offer from a company last year due to COVID concerns and not being able to relocate. Would it be a bad idea to reach out and inquire about it again?
I am currently situated in the US and plan to do a landing in Canada for PR stamping. Any recent experiences going through this? Can I just land, get the stamping and fly back? Or do I need to wait back for negative covid test?
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
How is KPMG work from home support?

Looking for feature doc/doc-series director for branded doc (very lightly branded - think "sponsored by"). Subject matter is in the racial equity space so authentic storytelling from a BIPOC director is important. Female is a bonus. Mid-range budget. Ideas?
what is the range of L9 Salary(Fixed component) in Accenture for 7 YOE front end developer
Really annoyed that during a majorly stressful campaign (for a client that quite frankly sucks lol) that in every meeting, forum etc Project Management isn’t EVER mentioned in the acknowledgements. I guess it’s normal but I guess since I almost lost my mind and had three anxiety attacks in one just one week alone I’m feeling salty. I can’t even begin to describe the mental, emotional and spiritual fortitude this took. Again I know I’m preaching to the choir, PM is such a thankless job but argh!

Anyone else have to do mandatory “non-billable” hours? I just lateraled and this is blowing my mind. The ramp up has also been slow. Any tips?
18 months into my first role at a Big 4, had a great first year, but recently my PML has become a stressed hot mess and is treating me like garbage (+3 weeks). What are my options if this keeps up?
Hey Fishes, Whats the salary range for a senior consultant at EY GDS. Its for GDS PAS WFA team, if it helps. Thanks.
I have just recently accepted a position as Director of Compliance at a Fin-Tech company here in Naples, FL.. My previous 17 YOE were strictly in the Financial industry. Does anyone know what the average salary is for this position? I have a sinking feeling that I accepted the role too quickly without comparing salaries. The position only pays $50k/year. That seems low to me.
Hope to learn more if you bought an apt in Manhattan, or if you decided against it (renting/moving to upstate/Long Island/Jersey). My husband and I are considering to have a baby soon and are thinking of buying and living in Manhattan for the next 10 years or so (looking at property under $2M). Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!
