Anyone who had COVID or pretty sure they had COVID, have you noticed any strange symptoms long after the initial sickness? I exhibited all symptoms in late March for ~10 days and recovered. Since then, I’ve had a few weird 1 day fevers and occasional stomach issues, latest in August. Wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences.
I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!
Breaking into Consulting post-MBA, have opportunity to join as Senior consultant either in AI strategy or in Payments Strategy (up to me). Finding it tricky to decide on my own. What are the exit opportunities like? Any other suggestions?
Worked hard, won business and asked for a raise - got 10%. Now closer to median salary for my YOE. But it’s not in effect until my first year anniversary which is 2-3 months away. Should I accept the raise or negotiate?
Any good registry hacks? Or discounts to save money for things I’ll need for me , baby or the house?

For those of you who had worked in both EY and PwC for tax (corporate tax). How do they compare in terms of culture/hours? I’ll be joining PwC’s ITP group.
Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?
Before I graduated uni I interviewed with Pega and it was damn hard but I nailed it…until the final stage was dinner with a few others at a Thai restaurant. I quietly enjoyed my curry, not realizing I was supposed to be selling myself throughout the meal too. Took me a few years to realize what I messed up - I flew home so confident too. Haha
My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
Currently a senior consultant at B4 in LCOL city making $105K. Received offer at Microsoft in Bay Area for $130K base, $100K equity and 10% bonus for an associate role. Everything about the role is great except for the leveling given I am up for manager this year. Would appreciate your insights as I’m really struggling with this.
I feel so hopeless. All my friends are leaving Deloitte and I am still stuck here. I would like to exit to industry, but all the offers I receive are way too low, especially compared to the huge salary increases I see people here get. Where should I be looking as a strategy consultant with 3 YOE wanting a remote position?

Any insights into Amazon's Sr vendor management role? How does this role set you up long term or rank as an attractive T2/MBB exit?
Do you ever get conscious telling people that you work in HR? I feel like there is a stigma against our profession.
What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.
best way to gauge what WLB/hours are during the interview process? in the past i’ve asked about team culture but their answers never end up revealing much about this. i feel like it’s frowned upon to come right out and ask about hours, but not sure how else to bring this up
Two more weeks until I put in my notice. Trying to do the bare minimum but also not be too obvious, but of course my project is blowing up right now. AND I am getting pulled into proposals left and right. Make it stop! Let me coast!
