Every time I get staffed on a new project I still look up hotels near the client site to get a sense of what the project life would be like if it weren’t for Covid.
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course). I’ve created a market research survey for the concept and this group is the perfect target market to provide thoughtful responses. I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2
The NYC health commissioner is recommending that anyone who attended Electric Zoo be tested for Covid https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/15/nyregion/electric-zoo-covid-cases-infection.html
Is an MBA going to be relevant 5/10/15 years down the line post-COVID — considering how we have all evolved the way in which we source candidates/talent? Fielding for opinions here, because I’m curious! What do you think will replace it? How do you think schools will evolve? We all love M7/T15-20, but will it hold the same amount of prestige and/or power as it does today?
Anyone here caught both the original covid as well as the UK strain? How different did you feel between the two?
As per the trend in Current "Great Resignation" even big MNCs are facing offer rejections and it is very hard to onboard IT employees because everyone has multiple offers, Only those companies have some advantage who supported employees well in Covid period. Employees were in fear of job lost, and maximum IT organization's took benefit of this fear, now they are only facing maximum offer rejections.
Covid presents a great opportunity to switch to year-round schooling. Too bad it won’t happen.
Is it ethical or safe for a fully vaxxed person to fly after confirmed, close exposure to covid during the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend? Does that travel pose a risk to others? Should they voluntarily quarantine for 14 days?
Deloitte strategy 🐠 I noticed the travel requirement says 50% in non-COVID times as compared to the traditional 80%. Is this accurate from your experience?
Google is providing all US-based employees weekly COVID tests by mail using bioiQ. Any consulting firms out there doing the same? Seems like a great perk.
Just overheard a convo of colleagues having been to Milan last week. They shouldn't be in the office. They even talked about the Corona virus. Incubation period is up to two weeks. How to react?
How are people in long distance relationships coping? We used to see each other every 2 months before covid but I literally have no idea when I'll see my bf next and it bothers me more than it bothers
CDC's current best estimate is that 35% of Covid infections are asymptomatic and mortality rate for symptomatic infections is only 0.4%. Hindsight is 20/20, but this was all a huge overreaction and not worth the economic cost and long-term negative impact of shutting everything down. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html
I dont know about you guys, but the Naya Rivera news hit me hard.. and I didnt even know who she was. Dont ever take your life for granted, we arent promised tomorrow 🙌🏽 Makes you also think how we can get desensitised to hearing the # of DAILY deaths due to covid.. Remember that they too were fighting for their lives and have left behind devastated loved ones.
Nothing says freedom better than this!! https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/04/florida-reports-more-than-11000-new-coronavirus-cases-another-daily-record.html
Is anyone else pissed everywhere day about Corona virus taking away their job and or prospects away?
Dear Drogo5 peeps. How long did it take to produce the facebook covid work? Start to finish. And what was the budget?
It is going to be fascinating to see how we view the fighting over school mask mandates in 20-30 years once we have more historical context and perspective. It’s so crazy to me how divisive that question has become, whether students should have to mask
Any tips on things to purchase (both safety, cooking, mental wellbeing) for preparing to live alone? Pre-covid I loved the idea of living alone but as my 8/1 move in date approaches getting a little overwhelmed and want to avoid feeling lonely with most of my family and loved ones living across the country and spending all day on work video calls, don’t want to rely on personal Zooms
The diversity officer at my old company:
PwC SA what’s your base pay and starting bonus?
Currently been in DDV the past 3 years and I am stuck. I’ve had interviews and final rounds but feel like my experience is too general to get the offer. I’ve done primarily IT/Ops DD and IMO/SMO work. I’m ultimately targeting S&O / bizops, Corp strategy, or program management in tech. Any suggestions on any mid-point pivots I can make to end up in tech?

A headhunter for a PE shop wants to talk tomorrow for an associate level position. What salary range should I be expecting?
I just got an offer from Facebook. I can choose either a SWE or a SWE, ML role. I want to focus on production code: either productionization of ML models or just generic back-end would be fine, the former is more in line with my experience. Does anyone know how much modeling is expected in a SWE, ML position at Facebook? I'm thinking this isn't the right position if I want to fully avoid ML modeling, and that I should go in as a generic SWE. What do you think? Thanks!
Can anyone please refer me to PWC's FDD team? I am an ACCA member, have 5 years of audit experience and 6 months of FDD experience, willing to relocate to London. Thanks!

What is everyone’s opinion of the sales and marketing practices at MBB consulting firms? If I’m interested in growth strategy, opening up new channels, etc. are these teams a good route, or do they not stack up well against consultancies that specifically focus on sales and marketing?
Planning on buying a vacation home and renting it out when I’m not using it. Anyone with Airbnb’s or the like have issues with cleaners/maintenance from afar? It would be a plane ride so hard to check in that things have been done properly.
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
You'd think I'd be used to waking up alone every morning by now! The loneliest part of WFH. :(

Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen). It’s for a biz ops role and the recruiter said the call would be just behavioral. Wondering if anyone got case/problem solving questions in the first round or if those were for the final round. Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻
