When listing awards and honors on applications, should we include those received through work? Or is it purely academic and extracurricular?

You can list anything you want to, just make sure you give them an idea as to what the stakes were. Were you the only one out of thousands who won it? Or was it a monthly award in your office? Provide context so they understand impact, even if the award itself matters little.

Back in office and want to lose the covid weight (not much, but I am petite so just feel uncomfortable with the added pounds). Mentioned it to colleagues. Colleague who is in good shape (male) told me a few days ago he could do a program for me, and found a gym close to where we both live for us to go to, Is it weird to go with him? I probably shouldn’t think this but somewhere in my head I am thinking.... do I want to be in gym gear around this guy? Haha

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
