Who is still traveling for work and what is the expectation in the coming months? Will it ramp up or has COVID changed the way your team/company does consulting

We’re still traveling but it has to go through a pretty tough approval process and we have to do weekly COVID tests. I personally haven’t had to travel yet but my boss has been on the road for 2 months

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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 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.
