Exploring other opportunities on bench. Lady next to me is openly talking to a recruiter in shared common space. Wow just wow.
Holding all else constant, do you prefer two continuous weeks of bench time or 10 hours less work per week for 8 weeks
I spend my days without showering, just eating junk food and watching puppy videos. What the bench has done to me..
If you’re on the bench and give your 2 weeks notice, is it more likely you’ll work the 2 weeks or just be told to leave that day?

Week 3 on the bench. What to do? I am working relentless BD with a manager I like and I have applied to all roles in region and done heavy networking. Anything I am missing or ways to staff smarter?

Drafted 4th in 10 team .5 PPR. Bench is a little underwhelming, but solid starters. Went with upside bench players. Got offered Brady/Mixon for Allen/Robinson, but I think I like Robinson over Mixon even though Mixon is getting drafted higher, but let me know your thoughts.
On the bench but putting in my notice in two weeks. Any reason to look for projects, PD work, etc? Or should I just chill?

When you match with someone really attractive on tinder on the day you roll off.....#thestruggle
Finishing my first year at pwc - I've been in contact with a recruiter from Marakon for an associate position. They're offering ~90k up to 20% performance bonus (skeptical about this). Worth it? Ctd..
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
Hi 🐠 Fam, anyone know what status you need to get an upgrade to business on a United Polaris flight ( BOS/SF route)? I’m gold status but apparently that’s not enough to qualify on the Polaris routes.
Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
Purchased a basic AA ticket for my wife... those things are rough... very restricted. Only part of my status that benefits her is the priority boarding and I think the gate agent just let us have it..
Thoughts on selling delta calls today and rebuying during the pullback when premiums are lower?

Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
Which consulting vertical has better exit opps into industry? Change management and workforce transformation vs. digital transformation/strategy
Anyone know how COVID19 has impacted business across different McKinsey functions? Anyone heard of hiring freeze, or worse, potential layoffs in the summer?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
Going to Cabo in April with my husband! Looking to do more adventure travel, but also take advantage of all these Bonvoy points I have. Anyone have any recs for great properties there?

I’m between jobs, no longer have health insurance, & w/out a definitive start date. Really concerned what my options are going to be if I happen to get sick... anyone else in the same boat?!
Debating taking a Leave of Absence due to mental health and would appreciate some opinions. Pretty sure I have severe depression, some of which stemming from work. Performance on current project has been impacted by my mental health - think I’d be let go after returning from a LoA bc of it. Either I take a LoA now and focus on looking for new jobs or ride out current project until I can find a new job.
