DH Philly employee here struggling to cope with the layoffs today. I wasn't personally laid off, but seeing so many coworkers let go has rattled me. Advice?
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
If the big4 has an up or out model, do a lot of senior managers get laid off? Not everyone can be a partner/principle. How long can someone be a partner/principle for?
Has anyone used the free Uber airport rides from the Amex promotion? Will it work if I only have a corporate Amex card?
I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???
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. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
For those who got their coronavirus stimulus checks, what did you or plan to spend it on?
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
How do I ask my manager for a promotion? Or when to expect it? Im still quite young in the company but i think I do good work and i work a lot. I'm scared he'll say I'm too young
Strategists never get fired. Next to Account. Creative and production are chopped first. To make the insult worse, Strategists get hired faster everywhere. Perceived value is everything.
Promotion was with HR to be approved...am I being paranoid for worrying the current world situation could significantly delay it?
Promotion effective two weeks from now on 7/1, too early to change your job title on LinkedIn?
Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
The truth about how covid started
I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Just graduated and still don't have a credit card.... any suggestions on what my first one should be? No student loans and looking for one with the best rewards/cash back.
Thoughts on giving yourself a promotion to a CD when you start freelancing if you where long due for a promotion anyway?
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.
Am I the only one weirded out by these mass spreadsheets of individuals who have been laid off? Is anyone really looking to these for hiring purposes?
Waited two months to hear back from EY for a role that said online and from the recruiter they wanted to progress me to the next steps in the hiring process. Even did the hire Vue video and phone screen. Woke up today to find out they are going a different direction. Thanks for dragging me on. That’s cold
Anyone have experience with bariatric surgery, good or bad? I’m 6’0, currently 270lb (normal range pre-Covid was 220-250lbs) female recently diagnosed with Graves Disease (thyroid disorder) that has me swinging hormonally all the time affecting my mood and emotional coping skills, metabolic hunger signals, energy levels etc. I’m interested in a consultation and feeling bariatric surgery may a tool to provide some “bumpers” on my weight situation. Interested in others experience here!
Indianapolis firms: FDB; B&T; Ice Miller; Taft...anyone have any insights as to culture/WLB/pay scale? I know they aren't market but I can't seem to find good information. Am a 3rd year M&A on Cravath scale but considering the move.
What yearly raise and bonus do you expect with 1 or/and 2 rating, consultant level at D ..
Has anyone taken disability leave, and then used it to look for jobs? How does this work legally?
For firms that are announcing year end special bonuses (and that have billable requirements for the bonuses) - are you required to hit the billable threshold to receive both the regular and special bonus? Or is the special bonus paid out to all regardless of hours?
Want to get an mba to get into a cushy tech position. Do people openly write about their tech goals in their apps? Feels like most post-mba essays are usually over-inflated.

Did anyone apply for an employment based Green Card in 2020, how long did it take to get your EAD? I’m currently filing an EB2 NIW application and I may have to take an unpaid LOA after my STEM OPT expires and trying to gauge how long it may be for

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have experience or insight as to how best to navigate receiving a large settlement bonus (not something that happens on a regular basis, and so is not “expected” income) while on fed student loan income based repayment plan? Next year they will bump up my monthly because my tax return reflects a higher income than my actual salary.
