Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!
Trump supporters, do any of you really believe Louis Gohmert got coronavirus from wearing a mask?
Trump just aired what is essentially a campaign ad, attacking the press and praising his response, in the middle of the coronavirus briefing. He forced the country to watch this live.
I have an employee who has been out on Mat leave since beginning of October. She is scheduled to come back beginning of Jan. Today I received an email from our employee asking if she can work the following schedule for the month of Jan: two week 3 days on, two off and then another two 2 days on, 3 off. This is due to COVID and not wanting to put the child in daycare (which I totally get). Not being in a situation like this before, how do I respond?
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
How do I explain being made redundant due to a covid-related reduction in headcount in my old strategy boutique? I was thinking of "I had been considering a career change prior to the new situation, but this action has accelerated that process and enabled it by releasing me of my contractual non-competes". The above is more geared towards industry - what about interviews at other strategy consulting firms? I was employed there for 9 months fwiw

India: Are there anyone who applied for PF Advance (COVID) twice? I’ve availed it once but skeptical if I can apply again. Please shed some light!
I'm moving to Europe in a few months I'm also struggling with depression since covid started. I'm not running away, per se but I definitely could use a fresh start. Loneliness is definitely at the heart of the issue. I've spoken to friends/family about it, and they're doing their best to hang out but everyone got in relationships over covid so their time is limited. I see friends like once or twice a month - much less than pre covid. Any advice about staying sane these last 2 months?
Twitter might become a very awkward place for the White House. Twitter is going to add misleading labels, including tweets from politicians. https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/05/11/853886052/twitter-to-label-potentially-harmful-coronavirus-tweets
Should I be putting any money into my loans at this point? I havnt had to pay them yet with covid. What is everyone doing? Once payments resume again is anyone in a rush to pay them off?
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
Approx how much should I have saved in my emergency fund? Recently moved back in w parents bc of Covid. Don’t plan on moving out til it’s over so I have no rent payments, etc. Only debt is student loans which I pay monthly. Have about $25k so far in my savings account and $40k in 401k. Is that enough? Do I put the rest in investments? Want to buy a house within the next 2 years.
Non-political poll - how many non-billable hours have you logged so far this year? I’ll start: 143
Currently a teacher but looking for a career move. What are jobs that a teacher can move to without having to go back to school? Everyone says don’t leave because the benefits are good but when health, dental, and vision rates are rising constantly and I could do my own retirement plan in a different field I’d argue the benefits aren’t something to keep you in a position any longer.
I make 120k base right now. Is it worth pursuing an mba for roi perspective? I’m think of doing part time/online for mba and want to get into FAANG as PM

Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP
If a CD assigns more creatives to a project than there are budgeted billable hours, is that squarely on him/her or is Account also culpable?
How is DT NY IM Tax practice? Thinking of making a move soon. Just want some inputs about work culture, Partners, WLB, etc.
Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals. The question I have is: assuming I get an offer and the details work out, how do I navigate leaving? Should I provide notice right away? Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
How does one go from Sr. Art Director to Studio Manager? And who's hiring mid to senior level creatives right now? Thanks!
What do you use and enjoy for grammar in upper elementary? I’d like something more natural than a workbook, but I like the structure of prescribed lessons!
Inspired by the q of what firms are doing right, what are firms doing right for first year associates? Midsized firm, fall 2020 start class delayed to Jan 2021 but some started Nov 2020 to help the business group. Covid meant no "welcome to the firm" happy hour, but I think some got a wine gift box and some got nothing. New fall class just started so I hear the fall 2020/Jan 2021 class is feeling salty/forgotten. What have firms done for first years/ideas to make covid class feel welcome?
Currently mid twenties, and trying to take financing more seriously and would really appreciate some insight on how to allocate my income into savings! Make about roughly 70k a year (post-tax, no pre-tax contributions). I spent about $3,350 a month (~40k a year on rent, car loan, bills etc), so I have about roughly 30k to save annually. Obviously putting 6k into roth ira, and I need help with insight on how to allocate he remaining 24k between Roth 401k, emergency fund, personal saving, etc.
Is anyone else finding the salary discrepancies in our discipline insane? I did a little market research of my own and 5 people all doing pretty much the same job had a $230k difference.
