With the whole flu season on and coronavirus scare ..how are you guys managing to travel safely nd not falling sick?
People going to HIMSS - Anyone else heard rumblings of it possibly being cancelled due to fear of corona virus? I see that Facebook cancelled their conference due to similar concern.
I'm leaving NYC in about 6 months it feels between politics and COVID it's gotten pretty toxic the culture is very anti police and it feels everything that I loved about nyc is gone. I think job wise things are going to be remote for a while. I'm buying a massive 6 bedroom house down south and going to live my life.
My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?
Do any wholesalers out there have any good pieces on the economic effects of the coronavirus?
With increasing severity of the coronavirus, dreading even more going to my team room where people leave their dirty tissues on the table and don’t wash their hands after sneezing. Have some decency!
Any one had covid with mild symptoms while pregnant post 30 weeks? I don't know how I caught it but here I am!!!... synptoms with ear and nose congestion and sore throat and no fever... I am freaking out. Fully vaccinated and boosted.
Hi Ladies! I’m a sales rep for a private duty non-medical Homecare agency and when making cold visits at hospitals or clinics to introduce myself I’m often not allowed in. It seems that due to covid they aren’t allowing un-scheduled visits and since I’m new to the area I don’t really know anyone. Anyone experiencing similar challenges? What other ways can I get my foot in the door and meet the key players to begin to establish those relationships?

Traveling to the UK for 2 days for work and am wondering about the return (to USA) COVID test. What’s the easiest way to get one? Is something like Lucira acceptable? Anyone have any suggestions or guidance?
Honest question because I don’t fully understand when I see the numbers: why are people more afraid of coronavirus than the “standard” flu?
Offering prep help for exit from consulting, in return for donations to India’s covid relief. Any charity of your choice. Any amount will help. I am a SC exiting out with 4 offers - two product roles in FAANG, one startup, and a senior start role for a telecom company. I have coached three friends of mine to exit into opportunities with 40% bump (non product and product roles)
I notice a large amount of single black women in their late 30s and early 40s still looking, never married and it’s freaking me out. I’m almost 30 and it feels like another 10 years will pass and I’ll still be here. I don’t want to pitty them but I’m already feeling bad for myself. Before Covid, going out to bars I’d notice a large number of single black women of any age seemingly all waiting to get chosen and it’s like some of us are just doomed to this fate whether we want it or not.
Hope Trumpers take Covid-19 seriously now that they can't claim "it was a hoax that'll disappear after the election" https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-54851759
Hi everyone, has anyone taken paid leave recently under the “my childcare imploded” section of the Families First Act? Our nanny’s boyfriend just tested positive for Covid so she is quarantining for 2 weeks as are we (we = our 9 month old baby, me, and husband). I’m at a small litigation boutique and my husband is at a start up. My firm is super understanding about this, my husband’s start up not so much. Any advice or recent experience? Thank you!
Place your bets as to what Biden announces tomorrow related to Covid. Please keep it civil - trying to replicate the recent thread requesting everyone’s presidential election history.

Good happy hours in NYC?
Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
Has anyone tried giving up their seats on Delta or JetBlue? Is it really worth the time?
Team dinner? More like, Let's sit around for four hours and do nothing while the introvert shrivels up and dies.
When your senior goes back and forth on what he wants and not so clear on what he wants so you are just changing your script every 30 minutes. Make up your mind.
What were y'alls first year raises? Share competency/vertical/geo/performance if you'd like.
Dress conservatively for my first holiday party at the firm or slut it up and just dazzle everyone with my wit?!
