There’s a gathering. Drinks, dinner, after party and the shebang. I’m staying at home with Assassin’s Creed and a bottle of Eagle Rare.

Eagle Rare is the shit. Too bad it’s so hard to find.

Bet we’re having one. We just had a happy hour in the office. 🤦‍♀️

It’s for the “culture”

We had a virtual agency wide toast and then an outdoor happy hour for people in nyc (negative Covid test required)

like

Each office is hosting an in person event. Everyone needs to show vaccine status or come with a negative test and wear a mask to attend. Each office is roughly 35-45 people but a plus one is allowed.. Yes some pressure to attend especially for those of us in upper management.

We are having it but we are hybrid and have a vaccine (fully) or negative covid test mandate for in office or the party, including the plus ones.

My agency is “making a large donation to charity” for the holidays

We're doing a virtual party. Last year we did bingo, lots of prizes and sent a bottle of wine. Was super fun!

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

For a data engineer with offer from epam, impetus and apisero, which would you prefer? Apisero being 3lpa higher. What's the work culture like? How is it like taking a leave? Or a 7 day vacation? Do they let you take it most of the times?

Need gift ideas! I’ve been crashing at two of my good friend’s place for the past month and a half and I want to get something to thank them for letting me stay/holiday gift. Budget probably in the $100–150 range combined for both of them. They are both pretty outdoorsy 24 year olds so I was thinking something along those lines but can’t think of anything. All I have so far is a nice bottle of scotch. Please help!

Is that a better value substitute for business school? Sorry for the question overload lol. Thanks in advance for your help 🙂
