Why do companies plan holiday parties at 5PM/6PM? Does anyone actually get off work that early
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Ever since I started this job my depression/anxiety has been through the roof. Teleworking has helped, I have so much anxiety going into the office. Lots of times I’ve been left on my own with no warning to lead client meetings about stuff I have no training in (I majored in Spanish, I’m in Financial Management somehow) I’m moving and have to change jobs - just feeling overwhelmed and hopeless about work.
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
How do you roll off a project where you are close with the partner but the M and SC create a toxic work environment? The partner is very hands off, but knows about what's going on.
How much more expensive is it to live in SF than NYC? On my last round interview at a larger startup based in SF and trying to figure out what level of raise I would need to move.
Tired of traveling. Not sure if my background makes it easy to transition into a sr. leadership role in industry. Options?
Anyone out there combining finances (at least for shared expenses like rent, groceries, vet bills, etc) after marriage? Trying to find the best way to do this when my credit card bill will contain both shared and individual expenses. Also please share if anyone knows what the best offers are at the moment for opening a checking account! I know some places have been offering $200 or $300 to open an account with them. Thanks all!
Does anyone know how long is the H1B processing time right now ? (For new visa). My case was received on May 21st - Still have not heard anything.
While discussing a possible new role with a mentor. He recommends I expand my specialty and get some functional experience. What does this mean? Or what type of work should I look for?
Getting ready to sign my contract and raise my right hand for National Guard. I have yet to tell my manager out of fear they try to let me go before I am “officially” in service.
Imagine if Aristotle was pronounced like Chipotle!!
6 months in at a new firm. 4th year attorney. Completely new practice area from what I did previously. The partner often sends the random potential client call ins my way. Many times, they have questions related to things I’ve never done and he only provides guidance if I can pull him away from something else to ask. I’m super low on hours but feel that it would be ethically wrong to take on a case involving an issue Im totally unfamiliar with and not confident handling. Wrong approach?
Looking at a cool role at Workday 👀. Anyone able to refer and give insight to your experience?
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
Someone at PwC recently said they wouldn’t want anyone other than DJT leading the country during the coronavirus crisis. Unless that person is the devil harvesting souls, I hope they’ll read this:
My mom decided that tonight she’d confess: 25 yrs ago she told me my 1st choice college did not give us any financial aid and I couldn’t go there (so I went where we had it). She admitted I almost got a free ride but she didn’t want me to go there so she lied. I feel betrayed. Loved my school and have no regrets. Just feel manipulated.
