For anyone who took a reduced salary for a reduced work week in this crisis: Is your agency honoring this arrangement? Do the people above you make sure you take the day? Or are they working you twice as hard but paying you less? Did they reduce your team as well and put you in a position where you had to pick up the slack and not honor their commitment to you?
It most certainly does!

I’m planning on working remote in a few different cities this summer and fall. A week or two or three here and there. The goal is to stay inspired, meet new creatives and ad nerds, experience art, learn more, drink on rooftops and keep feeding my creative mind. Who has suggestions of cities I should hit?
Long post, but hear me out: There have been a lot of WFH-based debates this past week. The reasons for or against it have almost universally been focused on the consulting way of life, a shift in WLB, and efficiency. But as someone who left consulting a year ago for industry, I want to suggest that most people aren’t thinking thinking broadly enough. I want to posit that the pandemic is to consulting what Uber was to the taxi industry: a major disruptor that can’t be effectively rolled back.
Laundry Service people... how do you like working there? Are benefits good? Anything helps!
In case you're new to consulting like me and don't have crazy status yet and are wondering what to do if they try to boot you from a flight: http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/11/news/united-passenger-flight-rights/index.html
My manager (VP of marketing) is actively interviewing elsewhere - she has interview slots on her work calendar (can be seen by everyone). Other events are marked private, but all the interviews are not. It’s so weird 😂

Are you or have you been the sole HR person at the company? What are the pros & cons? I haven’t been, but a recruiter reached out with an opportunity to be one. They currently use the parent company’s HR but are buying themselves out to be a stand alone firm. TIA!

MBB people in London (or other non-US financial hubs) - if you are aligned to the financial services industry, are you still on the road most of the time or are projects more local?
Just saw my credit score drop 27 points for no reason today. Does this happen occasionally by mistake, and can I expect it to jump back up? Monitor my credit daily and have no missed payments or other issues that I think would justify this.
I have zero social life and covid is making it worse. Even if most of my free time wasn’t sucked up by the firm, I’m still not sure I’d have much of one. I struggle with making friends and I’m not very extroverted. But I’m over thirty now, still single, and really starting to feel lonely.

I am going to miss my students tomorrow and Friday. I love them so much, and I don’t want to be digital; I want to teach them in person! This year has definitely been a challenging year, but I am so thankful I have been afforded the opportunity to teach in a classroom. My time at home during this pandemic was mentally taxing, and seeing my kids in person this semester has given me life. Every day I am teaching is day that is more than a gift.
