My firm recently merged with another firm, and it is starting to feel distinctly more “corporate.” All of their decisions are metric-driven now—billables, realization rates, client and matter origination, business development hours. I’m missing the community feeling of the old firm, when I was more than just a number. Any advice on how to adapt? Is this just COVID burnout?
Not in busy season right now but slammed with a ton of work for a month end deliverable. Team is working super long days and everyone on my team (at least associates/seniors) is feeling super burnt out and morale is super low ☹️ any tips on how to increase team morale? I know it’s hard for most people right now as we come up on the 1 year mark of covid lockdown in the US.

For anyone who anyone who tested positive for COVID, have you noticed you hair falling out more than normal? I tested positive back in March and I swear my hair is coming out in clumps when I brush it.

Is it ethical or safe for a fully vaxxed person to fly after confirmed, close exposure to covid during the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend? Does that travel pose a risk to others? Should they voluntarily quarantine for 14 days?
i’m about 7 weeks pregnant . I had gained about 7-8 lbs during covid and started losing of the weight but i’m back to square one despite eating healthy. I also have a belly bump already (second time mom). not sure if it’s just me and I should try harder to lose or let it go until after giving birth.
I’m only 2-3 years into my career and I feel like f*cking toilet paper — just spent a week of my life busting ass/working OT on a reduced salary (thanks COVID, love ya 😘) “designing” PPT presentations for clients I’ve never met. I know that’s normal, but it would be nice to know the ppl who constantly tell you to “jazz it up”... I’m just really, really questioning what I’m doing in advertising. I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.
Covid WFH... exactly this feeling
I recently began to feel Covid-19 symptoms and decided to get tested (waiting for results). My husband took the rapid and tested positive. Meet the Teacher is Monday and school starts for my students on Tuesday. If I have to quarantine, I have no idea how this will work. Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.
History test (hopefully) not too long from now: Which of the following virus strains was the deadliest during the Covid-19 pandemic? A) Alpha, B) Delta, C) Omicron, D) None of the above
