So my brother doesn't talk to me for 6 months. (I had offered my lake house guest space to my cousin who said yes instead of my brother who didn't know if he could come nor when he might know if he could come, how unfair of me).
My manager had been saying some REALLY over the line stuff in standup meetings. Truly inappropriate details about his sexuality and also some stuff about my religion etc. We (the software developers) told HR. They spoke to him and he stopped being a weirdo but the company never addressed it further with us. Is that normal? I’ve never been a part of an HR investigation before and I don’t know what to expect

I am not licensed but wondering what will a good step other then a special education assistant. I was thinking to work in the college district to be a student support service worker.

I’ve been a project manager (delivery focused) for 8 years now and have worked across multiple companies / teams as I am a contractor. Lately I’ve been feeling really bored in my roles and not challenged enough. I’ve previously loved what I do but now I feel indifferent towards my role. I’m worried if I look for more senior PM roles I will feel the same. What other options could I explore and has anyone else had a similar experience?
I wanted to ask like I recently got a job in Wells Fargo and wanted to know two things WLB and growth opportunities.
