If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
Hi! I am planning on climbing, hiking, and wfh in Boulder, Co this summer. Anyone know of any temporary housing? Also open to meeting people, so dm me if you live there and want to hang out.
I didn’t get any stimulus checks, and I didn’t get any sort of raise for recent inflation. I am significantly more poor than I was before covid because of this nonsense. Thanks, government.
Does anyone currently have parents in the US, visiting from India? I am debating if it’s safer for them to travel back home now before Coronavirus gets worse here in the US.
Mandating the vaccine and or an increase in insurance for unvaccinated. Thoughts? https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2021/08/25/expect-to-pay-full-deductible-if-youre-hospitalized-with-covid/ https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/03/business/vaccine-mandate-employees-microsoft.amp.html
Have an Amex Blue Cash Preferred Card. Because of Covid, a professional convention I was going to attend was cancelled. Paid $500 out of pocket & won’t be refunded. Anything I can do?
I have received full time REMOTE Offers from PWC and Wipfli . Pros/cons and recommendations?
Would anyone buy a restaurant? There's a decent restaurant near where I live selling for what appears to be a pretty low price (assuming due to COVID). I'm really tempted to give it a go, and I have the finances to "weather the storm" until vaccines are out. I would of course go over their books before moving forward, just curious if anyone's had a positive experience?
Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours
Curious how other companies have been approaching bringing back their culture during COVID/RTO? Very biased but OW’s done an amazing job of reemphasizing our culture by blasting money at events (in-person!) and trying to do more co-location for teaming. Feels like the pre-pandemic days again
Is EY gds allowing permanent wfh option? Has anyone heard from respective team lead of such news
Wondering what your company's remote work policy was before quarantine, and whether they're working on plans to evolve it once there's a vaccine and we all fully return to offices.
Am I a shitty friend? Backing out of friend’s bachelorette trip next month because it is a flight and house with 10ppl. Plus restaurants and bars... I feel bad, but COVID?!
I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly
Simple question hopefully.. do you prescribe albuterol or duonebs for stable outpatient covid patients?
I bet the US Government would get Covid under control pretty damn quickly if major corporations suspended campaign contributions in light of the economic environment.
Just got done the first round phone call with Credit Karma, they want a 45 minute tech interview with the HM, and next would be a 4 HOURS interview split over TWO DAYS. They also want whoever they hire to be onsite (not mentioned on job listing) in SF within 6 weeks of start date? Who they think they are? Big tech?!
Women who are not getting the Covid vaccine because they are afraid of infertility or the effect on pregnancy - do you mind sharing your reasons why? I’m genuinely curious what resources you have used to make your decision. For instance, my friend says there is an NYU study that shows it has effects on fertility, and I have no clue what she’s saying because I can’t find this study anywhere.

TFW you are trying to roll off a proj and you realize how little your leads are tracking based on how much info they're demanding... Thanks for confirming that I made the right decision in leaving!
it’s wild how much casual racism there is in the HBS threads. maybe the reason you didn’t get in despite your top stats is that your essay pointed to the same type of low EQ that goes with complaining about how unfair it is.

I’m 5th year at a small firm in coastal California. Billable hour req is 1500, pay is $170k plus bonus. I have $180k in student debt. Love the lifestyle but want to get out of debt and start investing in income properties and saving for a primary home. Should I consider lateraling to big law, or will I immediately regret it?
BCG or MBB folks, got a call from the recruiter today that the outcome of decision round and calibration call today was positive and the lead partner will give me a call on Monday to discuss with me on the role and offer directly by himself. Trying to get some inside from the HR but she just asked me to wait and hear from the partner, sounds a bit weird and surprise to me as normally this state was usually with the HR. Anyone experienced this before? Was this really a good sign? @BCG Digital
Can you share with me a public or not-confidential due diligence case study which evaluates a company (either a start-up or a commercialized-stage company) that uses AI/ML please? I would like to see how your company helps assess these clients’ technologies. Why do they need these technologies? Are they licensed or patented? What are potential issues? Thank you!
