2. My team is having an 2-day offsite meeting in another city and many folks outside of our team are all traveling in for it. Some are only attending for an hour.

Associate attorney here - recently interviewed for a position with a large law firm and received an offer, which I'm about 95% certain I am going to take.

How are you all still travelling with the increase in cases of coronavirus? I am scheduled to travel to Vegas and Atlanta but husband is saying I shouldn't go.

Ladies - anyone in an international marriage (US and someone from another country), how do you resolve long-term geography decisions together? Do you decide to both be flexible or make one country your base (esp once school aged kids are in the picture)?

Any HR Managers out there? I’ve recently taken a job with a wonderful company that is thriving. I’m building the department out which I’m loving and my boss is fabulous. My big question is how do you manage all the “stupid drama” stuff without pulling your hair out? Some of the newer folks to business lack a level of professionalism - I feel like I’m reliving middle school. Also - Do most managers deal with those little “stupid drama” items themselves or does that fall to HR? Thanks.
