Please, no more virtual “happy hours” after 5 p.m. There’s nothin’ happy about it when we’re at home, reaching into our own fridges, forcing conversation on Zoom, and wishing we were outside doing real-life stuff. We’re no longer as desperate for connection; we’re virtually burned out.

GTB is losing/laying off employees left and right. Rumor is that Ford is unhappy. But I love my department. Do I jump a sinking ship before threat of another layoff.... or do I ride it out and pray?
Interviewing in Chicago next week. Flying from another city. Should I cancel? I kinda know the answer but welcome opinions...
What does your return to office plan look like? We’re thinking something like Tues-Thurs in-person, everyone remote M & F and flexibility whether you come in those 3 days. Thanks!

how’s strat at anomaly? 👀
Hi everyone. I am having a rough time with morale at my company. The issues can be traced back directly to senior leadership, and I have rolled up the feedback and issues time and time again. I am no longer sure what to tell employees who come to me for help. We just launched an engagement survey (my last ditch effort to get senior leaders to LISTEN). Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?
Very inclusion. Such diverse. /s
“We don’t need your ‘thank you’ commercials. We need better protections, and to be paid what we deserve.” This video is worth a watch. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/29/opinion/coronavirus-amazon-hazard-pay.html
First time founder - would you recommend square, stripe or something else for purchases between $150-$10k or what alternatively?
Looking for feedback on Paylocity and UKG payroll HRIS. We have 250 employees and rapidly growing company.
It’s even more obnoxious when it’s a brand that hardly has any diversity on top or didn’t bother giving hazard pay for their essential workers which included lots of black folk.
Can anyone recommend a certificate or course that is actually useful for developing professionals and/or reviewing performance? I don’t want/need something that is just a credential, I’m actually looking to get some formal grounding in these two topics so I can overhaul processes at my consulting firm. Thanks for your advice!!!
have been given an assignment as the next step in the interview process. need to build a campaign reco for one of the agency’s existing clients. anyone else get similar asks in the past? usually i’ve been given old briefs, which i’m comfortable with, but this is new work for a current problem... how would you approach?
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

For those of you who have had Covid, how long did your symptoms last? Were you able to go back to your normal routine after 2 weeks?
Offered a role to start in 2 weeks. I have a vacation planned out for a large family event last week of July. Do I tell them the first day I start or now? I don’t want the start date to push as it’s doubling my comp and the benefits are better
How does “transitioned/counseled out” work at MBB. Do you get a certain amount of time to find a new job and does the new prospective employer know that the person is/was transitioned out
Hey freelancers! What would your rate be in a senior designer contract role at a /big/ tech company? Hourly/ day rate?
Couple months into a new FT gig. Love most of my team. Cannot stand my partner (did not meet them during the interview process, big mistake). I’m bored more often than I’m busy and going stir crazy...

Does MBB respect your title if you try to lateral as a senior analyst, or will they generally knock you down to analyst/associate? Is this dependent on where you’re coming from?
A week or so ago, someone shared a stacked bar chart of each MBB/Big 4 firm that highlighted the percentage of consultants that say they work 40, 50, 60 hours etc a week at each firm. I have searched endlessly to find that chart but haven’t had any luck. Not even on google. Does anyone know the chart I’m referring to?
From consulting to investing / lending - anyone has guidance on how to make the move? I’m a consulting manager with finance experience pre-MBA. Thinking about pivoting into investing / lending but struggle to find an angle - assumed that it would be hard to break into investing but lending would be great (all the way from corporate banking to mezz). Any guidance on seeking relevant experience while in consulting?
