Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.

I hear a lot of bad things recently about Strategy& Middle East, in complete paradox with Booz & Co historical presence in the region (they used to talk about MBBB in the past): - Very bad Inchallah culture, completely dominated by Lebanese coming from AUB. - Greatly overstaffed (trend began weeks before covid) with tons of people on the beach. - Unhealthy competition between partners (they have more than 50 in the region). - Outsourcing their technical work to cheaper PwC. Any info?

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)

Has anyone gotten covid-19 and willing to share experience? What were your symptoms like? How severe was it? How long did it last? What was your experience with doctors, medications, recommendation, isolating? I know that symptoms vary significantly, but my friend just got it and I'm wondering how other relatively young, relatively healthy people may have experienced the virus.
Anyone know what the NY rule is if I am flying to the city just to handle some things and then immediately returning to my parent’s high covid state?
