Urgent help! I didn’t work on R before, just basic knowledge. Now the company I’m interviewing for asked me to solve a supply chain optimisation case study on R and make a presentation. Any leads on how can I learn R by this weekend?

I am actually in a very demanding project and my nanny can’t watch my baby anymore. I can’t take him to daycare as I immunocompromised. Can I request for an unpaid leave of absence? Would that be covered by unemployment or any other option I can explore? I am lost :(
How is the work culture at Unqork? Currently interviewing there for 15% pay raise. Most of it in RSUs though. Wondering if its worth the switch 🤔
If every study shows bad management slows productivity and cost companies good employees, why are all these a**hole clients and the MDs who turn a blind eye protected? My client's awful attitude creates an extremely unproductive environment. We spend more time protecting his ego or getting irrationally screamed at, than we do doing our jobs. I thought our MD might step in, but he just completely downplayed it and even blamed us. Why isn't there more attention on changing this outdated ideology?
Had my virtual on-site for an S&O L3 role 3.5 weeks ago (NYC, 5 YOE). I haven’t heard back on a decision yet, and was wondering how long it typically takes? I also know that I was one of the very first candidates to interview for this specific role, and there are atleast 2 more people scheduled for onsites. Does the recruiter typically wait for all candidates to finish their onsites before communicating a decision? Or if I haven’t heard back yet, it’s probably a reject?
For those who have interviewed or accepted positions with Google, how did you go about applying initially? Did you apply online, get a referral, or reach out to a recruiter on LinkedIn? Which do you..

How is CSX as a client at Nagarro?
Is this a red flag? I have been at 2 companies and have 3 YOE. 2 years at the first company and 1 at the second. Company I’m interviewing with right now is dragging me through the coals about it like I’m some kind of serial job hopper. Ive never experienced this at any other interview I’ve had. Is this seriously that big of a deal?
Made by me for our "entitled" brothers/sisters at EY. Hope you all leave and get the respect/PTO you deserve.
Passed BEC! Three down one more to go baby 💋
“Per diem” meal expenses are EXPLOITATION. $50 is not enough for a single meal at a hotel restaurant, let alone an entire DAY for food. Shifting travel costs onto your employees = evil. Yes i mad :<

What apps/systems do you use to keep track of all your projects and tasks for the various matters you're working on? I recently took on a more senior associate role and am juggling even more projects and assignments than before. I want to make sure I am putting my best foot forward and keeping track of everything I'm juggling so I don't drop something by accident.
Does anyone else stress about every single expense they make? I'm making north of $80K in Canada as a consultant and I save ~25% of my salary but I'm always stressed about every meal and every uber ride.
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
Maybe one or two of the reporters pretending to care about Biden’s answer to court rebalancing because they’re bored of a blowout race could ask the president or senate republicans about the president of the United States believing that Barack Obama and Joe Biden murdered Seal Team 6. https://twitter.com/UrbanAchievr/status/1316118694385385473?s=20
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
Im applying to this startup that has two positions that im really interested in. I already sent my app for one where I think my chances are better. Should I send an email to tell them Im interested in the other position as well, or would this be strange / weird?
Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
