What % of body weight is considered good for squats, bench press, and deadlifts? I weigh 150lbs (M27) so what are some good weights for these exercises? Thanks!
I need more EQMs before the year's out and currently on the bench. $75 round trip flights to Vegas... 🤔
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Being on the bench is triggering my anxiety in a way I’ve never experienced before. I’m in a constant state of panic, have chest tightness, feel like I am short of breath or someone is strangling me..
Anyone know of any online EWM Training Course I can take to learn EWM and be able to speak it and do Config? I need something to do on the bench.
When your project sucks but you can’t roll off
Just joined a new small firm about a month ago and I haven’t done anything in weeks after the first week of trainings and a weekly bench call. No one is reaching out to me. I think they’ve forgotten they hired me. What do I do?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Is there any benefit for analysts/consultants who are on the bench to help with BD work? Does it make a difference in terms of networking/getting your name out - or is it really just doing
Do we need a consulting meetup where we can chat about the job market, critical open jobs, and what we can do to resole. It seems that we have no one on the bench
Approaching 3 weeks on bench. Longest I’ve ever been on in 5 years. Nothing super strong in pipeline either. Should I be nervous? I’m sure I’ll be able to make up most of the hours later in the year.
I started in October, been on the bench for two months, and now I am starting on processing PPP applications. This wasn’t what I was expecting and is not close to what my domain is. All my other new hire colleagues are on exciting cool projects. I feel like I’m going to fall behind while my peers are building their CVs. Is this bad? Be honest please. Words of encouragement aren’t needed, just clarity on my situation.
Have you ever worked with a partner that points out every error you make (regardless if it’s nothing or a bigger error) but never points out anything good you do or says thank you? How do you not let it slowly chip away at your confidence and self-worth? I try to let it roll off my back, but it does ultimately affect me and my enjoyment of my job.
What do y’all do while on the bench?
Anyone know the Deloitte Hilton code?
Need some insight into menopause. I’ve been living with my family during covid and it’s been very difficult with my mom. She is mostly in a bad mood, constantly picks fights, has mood swings at times, and is miserable. Some of this is due to other issues at home but I’m wondering if it could be hormonal. Is this menopause?

Finally got an in-house counsel interview! In Biglaw now. Any interviewing tips that differ from law firm interview tips?
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
Hi ladies. I need some advice. I'm currently out on maternity leave, to return in about a month. I was just informed my male counterpart in my department will be getting a promotion by our new boss. This is really a slap in the face considering I've been trying to fight for equal pay since last year when I found out another (former) male counterpart of mine was making 40k more than me. What would you do in my situation? Demand to know why I wasn't considered? Leave?
Thinking about going in-house to lead performance media. I know titling is different, but what kind of title and salary should I be looking for with 15 yrs of experience?

My flatmate got job opportunity at TCS with 4 years of experience with package 15lpa, he showed his offer letter to me. He passed out from same college and done b.tech only then worked at IBM then switch. I am earning less than 1/3 of his package. Lesson: don't be loyal to your company, never.
Laid off 2 months ago - 111% utilization, glorifying appreciation from clients, great mid year reviews, recruiting & learning development internal initiatives. How do I stop feeling worthless?
I have no idea how to get motivated again. I am a legit zombie that sits and types for hours and hours without talking to anyone. I feel like a shell of a person. And nobody in management cares about any associates well being in this remote environment. I’m a person who likes to talk about things, but I am well aware that nobody in management would even want to actually do anything to help. Is anyone else feeling the same?
What's the best way to prepare a business case presentation? I've been invited to a final round interview for a medical device company as a process optimization consultant. They sent me a client case study. In the case there are pain points of the client, and some numbers to analyze their workflow and recommend them to use their medical devices for process improvement. I'm not sure how to stucture it. how would you approach it?
Planning a bridal shower / bachelorette party weekend for my elder sister (she’s 28). She wants to have it in NYC, which is where she and I live. I’m thinking bridal shower at Union Square Cafe or some other fancy restaurant Saturday morning, bachelorette party Saturday night (but no idea where), and then casual goodbye brunch at my parent’s place on Sunday AM. Her friends would fly in Friday or Saturday morning. Have never done this so need all the advice / suggestions! Thank you!
Do SMs at ACN get an expense account or how does it work for taking clients/teams out for drinks etc? Also is ACN largely back in the office or still hybrid? I’m in NYC for context.
Hi folks! I am new to interviewing. Any tips on how to prepare for an initial phone interview with a recruiter for a position I applied for? What kind of questions should I be expecting? Thanks !
