Upon return from Short-term Disability for mental health reasons for 6 weeks, I was put on "of counsel" status, my compensation based solely on hours I bill and get paid. I'm getting no work. Fishy?

What was your position before your leave, and did you return with any restrictions or a did you ask to alter your responsibilities or job related stress?

The best associates always get the most work due to the fact that the partners know the work will be quality work, timely done. While you were gone, the partners who previously gave you work got use to giving the work to others. It will take time to reestablish the old patterns and unfortunately, you will once again need to prove your value.

Looking for life advice. I have insurance but I almost never use it because the health care system scares me. I went to a family doctor back in September 2020 because my mom forced me to. The doctor made me take a blood test (covered by insurance) and then made me come back in a week otherwise they wouldn’t disclose the results of my blood test. I got charged $125 and $75 for the two visits directly by doc. Now on my insurance says I still need to pay $68 and $137 despite having paid that amount


Not advertising related but recently I’ve found out I have a massive cyst on my ovary and it shouldn’t have gotten that large. I’m on birth control and it should have helped but I want to try and start having a family this next year. I’m just afraid that if this can happen while I’m on birth control how will it be when I come off. I’m just lost and wish female health was more understood. My doctor can’t give me any answers except wait to see in 6 weeks. Any words of encouragement would be great!

COVID is really grinding me and my group into the ground. I've been repeating for a few months now that everyone should make sure to put their emotional and mental health first. I tell the team to commit to things wisely, be honest when you can't meet your commitments, and let people know early so we can adapt. But I have a few people who are genuinely doing no work. When I push them on it, they become combative. Not my reports, fwiw, but under my direction. Anyone else dealing with this?

How to deal with one sided friendships? I have a friend whom I’ve been there for countless times (the only one there for both her breakups, job issues, etc), and am always checking in with her about her mental health, making plans, and generally keeping up. She, however, never initiates, has kinda just walked away when I needed her most, and most recently started excluding me from our group events. Part of me just wants to let it go b/c she’s not worth it and she’s proven that. But still hurts:/

This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids

Not sure which bowl to post in but I need some advice on how to be a good ally. I was at CVS today picking up a few things and overheard an uncomfortable convo: an older white man probably in his mid-60s was at the checkout and asked the cashier if she was from Ethiopia. She said no and he asked where she was from. She replied Bangladesh and he started talking about how he never hears about Bangladesh in the news these days. There were a couple people in line behind the man but CONT.

I know this is an incredibly privileged question to ask so spare me the criticism. But I am graduating with no student loans and starting a job in Philly making 95k. I want to lease an Audi A4 (~350/Mo) but my parents keep trying to talk me out of it saying it’s a terrible investment and that I don’t even need a car. I already plan on maxing out 401k/IRA and have an apartment for 1k/Mo. What do you guys think?

As an interviewer, I find it very awkward when an interviewee has on a button-up with a tie and jacket. Heck, even just a button-up. Why do you wear that at home? Put your polo on, relax a little, and don't sit their like a stiff in your apartment bedroom with a fake background.


You fly in Monday morning to the client site. Work till 7 pm. Need a quick bite. On the way to the hotel do you stop at CHIPOTLE or QDOBA? NOTE: There is a right answer to this question.
