I have a great relationship with my MPs and really dread telling them. Any tips on how to rip the bandaid off in the easiest way other than being super gracious and just getting it over with?

Been on vacation for 3 weeks now and was just assigned to a project for when I get back. Had to log in to sign background checks but completely forgot my password since it's been so long...
How is your company handling PTO/vacation specifically if it’s a “use it or lose it” policy? Are you still requiring employees to use it in 2020, or will there be leniency to move it to next year?
My manager likes to have 4 meetings for one meeting 1. Pre meeting for the pre meeting - just her and I to discuss the meeting 2. Pre meeting - her and I and the designated client liaison to discuss the actual meeting 3. Actual meeting - actual meeting with client 4. Post meeting - meeting with client to discuss what was discussed in the actual meeting Sometimes I get lucky and she wants a 1-on-1 "quick chat" to discuss the post meeting. All thoughts and prayers for my sanity are appreciated!

I’m talking to a mid-sided publicly traded company (5Bn market cap, based in Middle East) about a advisory board position. What’s a reasonable negotiating position on compensation?

Always get very positive feedback but have a hard time getting staffed after a role and I'm starting to wonder if there's a gender component to it.
Anyone has applied for an extension of visa? My mother visited me right before corona blew up, has been staying with me during the shutdown. Her visa is going to be up but still don’t feel comfortable sending her on a 15+ hour connecting flight. US gov website says as long as you apply, you can stay until they get back with an approval/rejection, even if your visa expires during that time...but hesitant to believe that given recent anti-visa sentiment. Don’t want her to be banned in the future..
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
