Hi! Does your agency have rules about Slack or how to interact with folks on Slack? Asking because of this piece about how Slack was/is used at Away: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/12/5/20995453/away-luggage-ceo-steph-korey-toxic-work-environment-travel-inclusion
Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
Thinking of getting a personal AMEX gold for the rewards and intro points. As the spending has to be significant to qualify for the 20,000 intro points and for it to make sense in general, has anyone else found that their credit score went down due to using AMEX as main spending card? I don’t really need a credit card per se and I just really wanna be able to accumulate points on my spending that I can use as miles/rewards… however not at the expense of my credit score!

Do you truly need both a regular stroller and a jogging stroller? For context, we're having twins and am an avid runner (aware we'll be walking until they're old enough). Starting to wonder if I could get by with just a jogging stroller and a quick collapsible travel one

I’m at the Sheraton Toronto airport drinking by myself, flight tomorrow. What’s everyone up to? Keep me company.
Can I be fired for refusing to travel right now? Don’t want to due to covid risk. Raised this concern but was told I might just have to anyways. Can they fire me if I just don’t go? I’ve said very clearly I will not go, and don’t think they’re going to accept that answer.
Anyone else going to get the new (retro) NES system? Sounds like a great travel console for life on the road. #mariotail
Is it my imagination or do they put the more attractive flight attendants in first class?
Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.
If you get fired from big law, how likely is a firm to be vindictive re recommendations etc

The burnout is real. I’ve been a nurse for almost 10 years. Two of the which were in sales. I am likely going back to medical sales. If you’re wondering how you can do that, your first step to leverage your clinical knowledge would be to look for “clinical sales specialist” or similar jobs. Device companies are always looking for nurses but keep in mind you will be traveling a fair amount to get experience and then move to a true sales position (if that’s what you want).
I’m currently in my last semester for my Masters in Data Science and received an offer from Deloitte for a risk and financial advisory analyst role within the AI and Analytics team. TC will be above 90k. Deloitte is definitely expanding their efforts in the Machine Learning field but not sure if I should keep looking for a more traditional tech company. I have 1 year research in Data Science and would appreciate any input! Thanks in advance.
