Time for a Propecia poll... have you taken it? How long? Side effects? Results?

Definitely has side effects. Downstairs gets impacted big time after you reach a certain point. For me it was around the 2 year mark. I would stay clear and just get a hair transplant or embrace baldness. Trust me if that’s your biggest worry in life then you’re blessed


I’ve never taken it since I was worried about the side effects. I was very self-conscious about my hair until I shaved it (I leave 2mm). Best decision I ever made.


Can someone link me to a study? I’m considering getting on it but would rather go other routes if the side effects are this bad


I went out with a guy who had issues downstairs....

Yea but I think he has some other issues like anxiety

Husband took it for 10 years. Developed major issues overtime — would not recommend. Research is pretty clear

Testosterone just disappeared. He has done all kinds of supplementation and it refuses to come back. No other medical issues

If you want to talk to an expert look up Dr. Alan Jacobs in NYC (MD trained across Harvard, Columbia, Duke, and Cornell)

Research is unclear and skewed towards the negative.

Took it about 6 months so far. No issues and seeing some results.

6 months in vs. 10 years in mate. Only looking out for you.

Husband said it made him depressed. Went away after he quit it. Was on for about two or three years.

What do you mean “skewed” negative? Is that different than just “is” negative?

I’ve been on it for ~1.5 years. No side effects so far. I haven’t noticeably regrown hair but I also haven’t noticeably lost any more since I started it. Taking biotin as well.

Taken it for two years. Amazing results with the hair and zero side effects. Similar results for one of my best friends except he’s been on it 4 years.

For those who have jumped from one Big 4 to another, how long do you give it before you decide it might be time to boomerang back? A couple of months in and still not sure this was the correct move.


Posting here since this bowl probably has the largest international exposure. Family visiting in July on B2 visas. Any idea US is permitting entry to tourist visitors? Any quarantine impositions on them? Anyone had visitors enter recently?


Reduced hours question - at my V10 firm associates can opt for a lower hours arrangement (say 80%) and the salary is docked the same. However, if you ultimately end up billing 100%, the salary is made whole to 100%, paid with the bonus. Is this the norm in V50 firms? Or how do other firms handle reduced arrangements?


My PD just became current and I’m just waiting for my I-485 to be approved. Has anyone gotten theirs approved recently without having to do an interview? Mine is EB-3 ROW.


Does anyone know the email of W+K Portland’s talent recruiter?

I’ve been saving a lot of money since quarantine started (mostly involuntarily, there’s not much to spend on). I’ve got 6 car payments left on my 2019 VW (it’s a good car, I expect to keep it for another 3 years at least- only 6000 miles on the clock)

Should I go ahead and pay it off right away? The APR is 0%, so I’d not be saving anything in interest payments, but I’m not investing my recent savings in anything (I might need the money if I’m laid off). WWYD?


Have you ever had a wonderful mentor (either male/ female /gender fluid) how do(did) you show your appreciation for them taking the time to guide you?

Interviewed at large media firm for an internal consulting role. Interview went well. Recruiter had said that would be the only round of interviews. This is a new role that the division has created for the first time. Recruiter later replies via email that hiring team is excited for my candidacy and we should have another conversation for 'next steps'.

What could the recruiter want to talk about?

We have already talked about salary expectation, location, notice period during prior calls.


Any one hiring for Product Based company.. ?

I have 2+ year of experience in Accenture (production support project)
