Things happen. Usually IT rents the machines and gives one "freebie" where they replace it without any charge to you. Just be careful next time! Go in first thing Monday and explain what happened.

This is kinda off topic, but the number of times I've left my laptop bag under a bar or a table somewhere and went home after drinks with coworkers, only to go retrieve it in a panic the next morning, it's scary 😂😱🙈

I wouldn't stress about it. We have a warranty on ours so the vendor sends someone to replace the parts or swap it out. we keep a few backup machines because we know this happens. If you use cloud storage like Egnyte or Dropbox it's not hard to get you up and running.

You work on the subway?!

No it was in my backpack and it was spilled on my backpack!

Dang, OP... that sucks! Guess that's why they don't like people to bring drinks on the subway.

Hey all, would love some advice. I’m a Business Analyst with 5 YOE and minimal technical skills. And I’m really unhappy where I’m at. Very underpaid, and feel like I’m limited in job opportunities. I want to become more technical but no idea where to even start! I was thinking about starting with a certification but most seems really tough to learn as a newbie. Any guidance/advice on which certs to look at? Was thinking AWS cloud practitioner as a starting point? Any help welcomed!!

I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?

Hi, I am working in F500 company and moving from US to Canada due to visa constraints. I have been offered 10% increase to move from US salary to Canada salary. Is it a norm? Do companies actually convert the salaries using some Fx rate or they give around this same bracket. Really appreciate some opinions or stories if they have been in the same boat.
