Currently I am exploring opportunities with Accenture applied intelligence ( data science analyst) and Fractal Analytics ( consultant grade 8) please guide me which is better in terms of WLB and Projects/Work .
There isn't much difference in pay , fractal paying a bit more on fixed part
Almost every interview I have goes well over scheduled timeframe, having good conversations and generally stories are shared back and forth but I still end up getting rejected.
If they aren’t going to hire me why would they waste their time dragging conversations?
Does anyone know if there are any implications on the bonus $$$ if I quit after finishing my program (6/30) but before bonus announcement (around end of July)?
Looking for an app that allows you to configure heart rate ranges and gives audio cues while running if you exceed the threshold. Runkeeper & Nike Run Club don’t seem to do this. Any recs? Thx!
I need help. I think I’m being underpaid at my job I’ve been at for 3 1/2 years. I’m a full time receptionist for a veterinary hospital but I also manage the reception area (I answer all questions and if someone makes a mistake I’m the one the fix it) and am an in house trained veterinary assistant but can do a techs job (unlicensed) and I do help the technicians out anytime they need and I’m only getting paid $13 an hour while a crew member at arbys gets paid $15 . What should I do ?
Lately I have little tolerance for big meals. I try to do IF and would naturally do it because I wouldn’t feel very hungry until noon and have a big lunch and a big dinner. In the past few months, if I eat a big meal, I bloat up. My body asks for small meals every 2 hours or so. This is very awkward socially or at office when I can’t eat much but keep feeling hungry so frequently. Do you think something else is going on that I need to check on?
McKinsey & Company Anyone here working for McKinsey & Company St Louis? I just have a couple of questions :)
How hard is it to recruit front-end engineers in LA as opposed to the other big American cities (e.g. NY, SF, Chi, etc.)?
How did your companies adapt to the Covid wave in the beginning? What measures did you take to ensure your business kept rolling?
Does anyone here believe you can start solid product strategy without a brand strategy and positioning in place? If so why or how?
I work at a mid size PA firm got an offer from a client to join their team. I reviewed the NDA I signed when I got promoted to manager and it stated the following:
"For a period of 2 years thereafter, regardless of the reason or reasons for his/her termination, the employee will not directly or indirectly solicit or provide "competitive services" to any corporation that was a client of the Firm at any time during the 1 year period."
Am I SOL? How likely will a company enforce this?

Had a really rough drinking episode this past weekend. Broke some things in our house. Don’t remember. For 20 years now, I can have 1-2 drinks and be fine 9/10 times, and that 10% I go HARD. Sometimes I just really need it, but it’s always filled with regret the next day. I really want to be able to drink a glass of wine or have a couple beers, but now my SO says 100% abstinence. Is it possible with my background and history or abuse to even try to do this anymore, or should I completely stop.
Unbeknownst to my friends or family, I just stopped by Pinkberry on my way to pick up dinner and ate a small chocolate hazelnut with candied pecans under an awning in the rain in the most harried and shameful way. Much like I used to slam two IPAs while waiting for a take out order. 😂

All, I’ve been sober 8+ years. My partner has gradually been drinking more and more - now up to a bottle of wine per day. I’ve asked him to do some serious thinking about his drinking, but (cont)
I'm considering going into treatment for substance abuse. I'm afraid being gone from work will hurt my career but I look back and see some really really stupid things I've done when I've been high. I'm just nervous and want to get my life and my drive back.
I struggled with binge drinking for many years after my mom passed away. I have been sober for the past 12 months. My husband has struggled with drinking for a long time as well, and just got done serving a 6 month sentence for his second DUI (on ankle bracelet at home for 4 months of the sentence). He got out of jail this week, and he has drank almost everyday since. He says he is different now, and can control himself (i.e, he won't be abusive or drive). Continued in comments..
I’m sober curious. I’m also about to help a new non-alcoholic spirit company with their launch.
I have a question for people in recovery. If a brand were to contend that sobriety is a spectrum, or allow for that to a least be part of the conversation, how does that make you feel? Are other brands doing a good job of being inclusive of people who are truly sober?
(I get that NA drinks / spirits can be triggering for people in recovery)
4 years sober today after spending 5 years hopelessly addicted to opioids. So grateful for recovery communities for taking me in and showing me how to live. If you’re struggling, reach out to us! There’s a way out...but it’s not alone
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but:
“If you’re a functional alcoholic, seek help before you inevitably become a dysfunctional alcoholic and lose everything you worked so hard to achieve.”
how do you guys handle your struggle with coworkers? I'm a child of alcoholism and abuse, and I've always been a pretty heavy drinker myself. Well, this last year has been a real doozy for me, and...
Always wise to read the daily reflections. What daily rituals does everyone have?
My SO is an alcohol abuser but has said he knows it’s a problem and would like to cut back or quit. Any suggestions or advice in how to help and cope with this. He becomes a different person when he drinks. I want to support him but don’t know how or where to start.
Just wanted to post an update. 68 weeks ago I posted about my drinking problems. It was bad. It’s been 8 months now without a single drink. I still can’t believe it. I still miss drinking. I’ve sat with coworkers and watched them drink. It’s not nearly as fun, but I am so thankful each morning I can hold my head up high. Will I drink again? I only said I would quit for 60 days. Can I have a beer? Some wine? A fine bourbon? I sometimes crave it. I guess there is the answer! You can all do this!
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who shares in this group. It truly helps me stay sober. I am approaching 12 months sober but have been struggling lately. While I have not relapsed, I’ve been close. Normally, before I get out of bed, I write down my reason to stat sober for the day, but lately the reasons have been lousy at best. But reading about everyone’s struggles and successes has helped get me through this past month. So thank you all for the inspiration to keep going strong!
I relapsed this weekend and put myself in so much danger. I am lucky to have made it home safely. So sad and questioning my ability to get back on track
Stopped drinking a year ago after a particularly rough period. Lately I’ve been having thoughts and considerations around starting again. I think my friend circle has changed a lot so I wouldn’t fall into that crazy party lifestyle. Has anyone stopped then started again successfully? I never drunk THAT much but it was impacting my life (sending stupid messages I shouldn’t have been sending) and getting blackout occasionally. I do think it was having a negative impact on my life
Started back at work 6 weeks ago out of treatment. On the same project, same client. The work just seems so small, unimportant, and insignificant now that I have a new perspective and new priorities. It’s impacting my performance however. How do you keep work a priority or at least stay motivated? Does it get easier with more sober time?
Has anyone struggled with Adderall/Vyvanse addiction/dependence? How did you successfully stop taking it while being able to keep your job? Any tips, supplements, etc.
