DPW has made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all U.S. offices. Anyone who doesn‘t have the vaccine will not be permitted to enter the premises. Can I please check how the other BigLaw firms are dealing with this? Don‘t want to start a political discussion, but this seems very intruisive to me.
Anyone else struggle with friendships during covid or in early 30s? Not sure if it’s 1) the challenge of seeing people w/different COVID risk profiles, or 2) the fact that I recently got an SO and most of my friends are still single, but it’s been a BIG struggle. I’m worried I’ll come out of this year with no one left... everyone is in own little bubble. Any advice?
I never thought I’d say this - but I have cancelled my trip to the Modex industry show in Atlanta next week out of an abundance of caution over coronavirus related to elderly relatives.
We need to improve our ability to take care of people in their homes. COVID is a perfect use case, as better to have these folks avoid the hospital
Just found out my healthy anti vax friend is in the ER due to covid 😂 You can’t make this shit up
Those of you who relocated during Covid, how did establish a friend network in a brand new city?
Despite our covid numbers going up, my district is starting in-person learning. I teach first grade and am scheduled to go back Dec 8th. We are using a "concurrent" model where we will be teaching both in person and online students simultaneously. Mondays will be planning days. Is anyone else doing this? What advice do you have to do this successfully without being totally exhausted?
Where are you shopping for clothes for return to office? Our firm’s dress code has not changed from what it was pre-COVID and I’m finding that many stores no longer carry work-appropriate attire. Help?! For reference, our official policy is business professional, but people tend to dress it down a bit to semi-business casual.
Coronavirus has really made me start to think about and value the simple things in life
Remember when COVID was a thing?
I feel violated - stepdaughter asked me and my husband to ensure that we’re Covid free prior to traveling to visit her. I assured her we are vaccinated and limit contact with others. A few days later I learned she took her entire family to a sport event where people tested positive for Covid. It seems hypocritical.
I’ll just leave this here
You know what’s been fun as a L&E attorney during this pandemic? Having clients and partners take their frustration out on you when, as here in CA, mask mandates and other COVID requirements change.
Anyone here have experience pivoting to self-employment? I’m specifically eyeballing commercial photography post-covid.
How many of you have traveled during covid? Felt fine and safe? Taking my first covid flight this week ans I’m excited but nervous
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Liberty Mutual Corp Strategy and Research, insights to career progression, salary, prestige vs Big 4 consulting? I don’t want to stay in Boston, not sure if the opp makes it worth staying
Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
Does consultant level at Deloitte get variable comp? I joined after the Bonuses were given out and am curious about next year.

Need some advice on career path change from a QA Lead to Scrum Master/Program Manager. Currently working for a Big 4 firm leading multiple teams for my project. I’ve been doing QA job for a while now and feel like I need to advance my career to the next level outside of QA world. I could think of Non Technical Scrum Master/Program Manager roles. Current Base Salary - $135K What can I expect in the job market for me? Appreciate your time and advise.
Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
Does anyone have any general sense of salary ranges for a Paid Media Director client-side? Would be overseeing in-house media execution—not overseeing an agency.
Client calls cuz he wants to transfer his account to a IRA. Asks abt the process but he's wasted my time w BS questions before and not my job to transfer his account. Compliance issue if I ignore him?
Incompetent senior is up for promotion this year and is mostly likely gonna get promoted cuz she knows how to kiss asses. A couple people on her projects already quit and no associates want to (con’t)
I was told to give one students “food rewards” when he does what he is supposed to do. I will only do this if others on task gets the same reward. Non-perishable, kid friendly, bite size food ideas?
About to start traveling A LOT. Do people recommend southwest or United? Flying out of Chicago and equidistant to midway and ORD.

Ladies, how do you know if your husband is a father material? My husband is in eager talks about us having children while I am on the fence. My dad took 80% care for me when I was young(cooking, cleaning, diapers, bottle feeding, etc) so my expectations for a father is way higher. My husband, seems to be still in the stage of transitioning from bachelor to husband, like he takes out trash, cook once per week, do laundry (no folding)when I ask. Not sure if that’s what it takes for me to predict.
If anyone wants an FDD referral at EY DM me
