Hello, all. First time here. I would like to get some advise. I have over 13 years of Food Safety experience in the retail and manufacturing sectors. Recently, I relocated from Dallas to Puerto Rico with the goal in mind to have my daughters closer to family. As you may know, Puerto Rico is huge in pharma and medical device, and there is a lot of opportunities. However, there is not much for food safety professionals, unless you cook. Do you think is time for a career change?
My manager thinks that because I WFH, I shouldn't be allowed to take sick time. If I do take a day off, she makes such a big deal over it, and makes life miserable for days afterwards. Problem is, I work in HR, so I'm really not sure who to go to, or if there's anything I can even do.
Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
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.
If you are sick, please don’t come to work...
What are your biggest hurdles when managing your disability in the workplace? And how do you manage/overcome them? I am newly disabled and work in consulting. Unfortunately the consulting lifestyle has taken a huge toll on my physical health.
for people whose parents might be visiting from India to the States, would you recommend any particular travel and/or medical insurance?
So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
I love my boyfriend a lot and am worried about him. He Ubereats his food every single day for every single meal and it’s stressing me out. He only consumes carbs and his diet doesn’t consist of any veggies at all. He’s only 29 and has been feeling sick and anxious all the time. Plus work adds a lot of stress. He has obviously gained a lot of weight and he has been feeling extremely low. He said that he will start doing cardio everyday but refuses to change his diet. I don’t really care what he
Okay, I’m just going to say I’m deeply ashamed that I work for adam&eve DDB London. IMO it’s become a nasty, toxic environment run by robots. Some of the things I’ve heard this week in how they’ve treated people recently has shaken me. So many people are out sick with burnout. So many people are struggling and we pride ourselves on not giving help. I need out. It’s so elite, jumped up and unsustainable.
Honest discussion: If you’re not vaccinated against COVID-19 by now, why not? What would make you change your mind, if anything?
Posting on behalf of my friend and colleague who is an extremely gifted graphic designer and medical illustrator who is looking for freelance creative work. He is reasonably priced and a delight to work with. Here’s the link to his website:
I’m really glad someone made is bowl. I’m sick and tired of all the Cole Haan and Banana Republic posts on Consulting in Style...
Any one here have friends in medical industry (doctors or nurses) who will not take social distancing seriously? I know two that are attending gatherings regardless of working at hospitals all day.
Breakthrough thought: instead of lying and saying your sick, take a sick day for mental health reasons. 99% you need it
Husband resentment. How to deal constructively? It’s been unfortunately simmering for years and boiling now. Before we had kids we agreed I’d be the “primary” parent. Word to the wise, don’t ever do this. Anyway I thought that meant I’d be the one handling most doctors appointments and nanny sick days and random days off school. He apparently thinks it means any care he does when I’m not present is “extra”. If I went out of the house for a work event or to get my hair done he felt (continued)
Bf’s mom is ovrbearing. He got sick the other day and she drove over to take him to her house to “care for him properly” without warning. I asked him to stay here, and good thing he did cuz turns out it’s covid. She comes over every single day for 3 days to bring him soup, even though I made my own huge batch of soup and he took a pic of how full the fridge is. She calls 5 times a day and talks about him like he’s disabled. I’m exhausted from dealing with her; any advice on how to deal?

How does this sound?
When you're drunk on a plane talking about how big time of a consultant you are and then you whip out a blackberry.........
For SPG lovers: Checked into a super noisy room on Monday night, manager refused to change it/overbooked. Tuesday:walked into a new room but someone left their bags/clothes to dry. Recommendations??
There are good weeks and there are bad weeks. And then there are weeks like this, where jumping naked into the fiery pits of Mordor sounds like a soothing alternative.

Let's be honest, none of us will get rich doing consulting unless we make Partner or start our own company. Stop bitching about 10-30k here or there on your salary
