I’m a Product Manager who wants to change careers. What is a job where I can work independently and am more task oriented? Meaning I want to know what I have to do for the day, and I can knock it out at my own pace. Maybe it’s COVID, but I’m sick of meetings with other people and simply want to be the owner of the outcome instead of being dependent on other departments/people. Obviously bonus points if it’s a sensible transition from a PM!
Tested positive for Covid-19. Can’t smell or taste much and some sore throat for few days but no other symptoms. How long does this usually last?
F 🐠, 31. I’m one of the “ad people” that found this bowl from the Covid bowl. Just getting it out of the way that I realize I’m not a single consultant. Anyway I’m newly single and want to know some Hinge profile tips! What have y’all got?
Please visit and read this article: https://ourworldindata.org/mortality-risk-covid I routinely assign articles from this site. They’re easy to understand no matter your stats experience. The site is VERY well respected. Ignore what side of the debate you’re on; pause to understand the math of CoVid fatalities. The article is not political. It explains how to calculate case fatality, crude mortality, and infection fatality plus how they can/can’t be used. News from all sides interchange these stats, but they mean very different things.
People who have made a job switch to another state in US (H1b transfer) in last 1+ years (since covid) with most companies being remote temporarily the Uscis rule that the employee should be in commutable distance from@office location within 30 days - how is this being taken care?
So I didn’t get my brother and your sister-in-law a gift for their wedding last February because I wanted to send them on a honeymoon. I thought I’d be able to use my points and really give them experience to remember. But it turns out because of Covid there are limits to the use of points for hotels and airfare. I don’t mind spending my own money, what do you think is reasonable? This is my only sibling.

I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing. I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does. Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...

I’m 32,f and single, I’ve been in the NYC area for the last 5 yrs (initial few where I was in a relnshp) I have gone on 10-15 dates in the last 1.5yrs (minus covid 🙄) without a single date where I was completely impressed! I’m a vegetarian, I’m attracted to smart intellectual guys who are passionate about something. I was planning on SF due to the potential dating pool there and I have received an offer that let’s me choose working remotely vs working from SF. Suggestions on the move ladies?
Can anyone recommend a personal trainer for a male that gained 25lbs of Covid weight? I’m in Back Bay if that helps narrow down the reccs
Can I leave my wife off the mortgage application? The reason I ask is she's currently not working at the moment (specialized nurse that finally had enough with COVID) but still has student loans. Trying to find ways to improve our DTI. Edit: Just saw someone ask something similar in the consulting bowl. I am not that person. On just my income, we're looking to be under 36% DTI.

Frustrated with work as we all are. Single mom insurance defense litigation for mid sized NYC based firm. Base salary is 136k nominal bonuses. Struggling to meet work demands (deadlines, billable hours) and then also struggling financially. Just curious if what I am making is going rate, am of counsel after taking 6 years off of practice 10+ years practicing. Thanks!
As more firms move towards greater transparency around performance and salary calculations, why does EY continue to keep the ‘salary bands’ completely hidden from employees?
I'm an LL.M graduate who took the July Wa bar exam and looking to practice in WA. I'm black and an immigrant.. not enough connections in the U.S. I don't need immigration sponsorship to work.

Hi! Any freelancers out there get their individual health insurance thru a broker? Looking for a reco. Thanks in advance and hope everyone is healthy and safe ❤️
Currently staffed on an extremely technical project. So I record the meetings and then re-watch it to capture all the important points. Any tips on how I can do this simultaneously during the call or fine tune my process so I don’t have to spend hours on the recordings?
Currently at 135k base comp, should hit manager by EOY. Should I take a tech program manager position at FB for 200k? What’s better for long term career growth? I hear once you’re at FB, navigating to new teams, projects, and roles is possible.
Shout out to the exec on our call who is WFH... has web cam live on WebEx with no makeup and a hoodie on 💄 #spiritanimal
I've been working for a regional public accounting firm since last Summer. It's a small office and I don't really fit in. The accounting software(s) is also ancient and slow here(circa 2003). I quickly applied for a position at a Big 4 and surprisingly was quickly offered a job. The training here has been haphazard and even managers barely know how to use the software. My main concern is the awkwardness from leaving after such a short time but the commute is an hour shorter to the big 4 firm.
Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?
Any insights into annual raises, performance bonus (avg., min-max %) for Senior Lead/VP at Northern Trust, Chicago? TIA ! Northern Trust
Might seem like a silly question but do any of your firms, or do you know of any firms, that have fairly progressive cultures? WFH has made me realize how incredibly stifled I felt in the office. I want to be able to show some tattoos, have a purple streak in my hair, wear artistic clothing etc and still be taken seriously. Does this kind of utopia exist or am I being extremely naive? I'm originally an artist. I hate how much I've realized that I've stifled my personality for this industry.
TC consulting: reason why I like strategy projects better than implementations- once you are done with the proj you hand over the decks to client and leave. In implementation projs im always asked...
