I'm a male with pierced ears that's been working at Accenture Interactive these past few years. I've been wearing transparent studs at work (which are less noticeable but still pretty apparent) to prevent my piercing from growing back in at work. I'm lateraling to MBB now where I'm assuming the rates are higher, clients are more senior, and tone a bit more serious. Would it be a career limiting move to keep my piercings?

What is the best way to learn about different roles in FAANG? I was a MBB consultant in India. I am in the US now with a AI products company.

However I don't want to get into corporate strategy roles. What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring. I’ve been in HR now for about six years and have never had a mentor. I’ve been relying mostly on SHRM and other people in the company for feedback. Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

I know my client needs an Accounting Manager. I know this because they’re startup med device company that has their books in complete shambles. The current accounting team isn’t very strong.

Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently
