We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.

So I'm stuck on making a decision. I've been applying to jobs because I felt underpaid at the Associate Manager level (L8) at Accenture.

Other benefits are pretty good too compared to Accenture. 2 things stopping me; 1) i love my team and feel super sad/guilty to leave them 2) the postion is a senior position, not manger so i'd have to work my way up 1 lvl again.
