COVID positivity rate is lower than 3% today for the first time since last March.. Dare I say that we are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel?
I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar
What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
Seeing Mckinsey winning alot of COVID related work, makes me wonder which pandemic has Mckinsey had the biggest net impact on, Covid or Opiod crisis?

Has anyone done a math lesson on the growth and analysis of the corona virus? If so how did you present it and what resources did you use?
What's your firm doing regarding Covid-19?
Can we all admit now that covid is NOTHING like the flu? Like its July, why is this thing still going? And how are we recording 60k cases a day? At that rate the whole country will have caught it by years end. The flu goes away --- this stuff hasn't lost a step
ZS measures for its employees during CoVID times are really impressive. Affection for ZS is all-time high right now <3 They truly value people
Curious, are attorneys taking cases to sue hospitals and staff that the family members claim have ‘wrongly’ intubated unvaccinated COVID patients? As in they should not have been intubated? Saw a FB page where a woman is blaming the hospital staff that his husband should not have been intubated and says she has been contacted by many attorneys to sue the hospital.

Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)
I created the biggest rift I’ve ever had in my family when I left mid-covid for my first industry job, moved to a new city, started dating what I thought was the love of my life… only to come full circle. I’m forever the black sheep, got fired from a shit job, this city sucks, and he’s a half ass som’bitch that wasn’t worth it. Humble pie anyone? I’ve got a dump truck load over here… for fucks sake
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
to 🐠 with severe anxiety/prone to panic attacks: i need guidance on how to help my loved ones manage through their anxiety. their anxiety is usually triggered by health related situations so COVID-19 has been especially difficult for them. scenarios of them getting triggered include when they’re running, they sometimes get bouts of coughs so then they panic, thinking they can’t breathe. or they accidentally touch harsh chemicals and think they injected toxins. how can i help and be supportive?
Bought a rental property last year and paid points to get the rate down. Should I try refinancing? I looked at Better Mortgage but my principle amount was too low for them to give me any offers. Wonder if it's worth to continue looking.
What is component of Lunch Allowance and leave travel allowance in salary component of Deloitte India? Are they claimable or part of gross ?
I’ve been faking happiness for 5+ years and don’t know how to truly be happy. Have an awesome wife, 🐶, 🏡, in a great group at EYP, work is fulfilling, mid 30’s, family income $350k+, both of us have MBA’s - there shouldn’t be anything wrong. I’m a former intel case officer and interrogator that spent a lot of time working with Tier 1&2 operators overseas in high tempo ops and was very well decorated during my ~13Y of service. I do struggle with PTSD at times, but that’s expected w/ former life.
Hi all, I wondering what I should do i was planning on taking an advance Accounting course in January 2021. Part of my company benefits is tuition reimbursement. I got an email back from my manager that was clearly drafted by the Director. The email basically stated that they were concerned that I was over working myself and the course would not be reimbursed at this time maybe in April that would be after they reevaluate the situation. My question here is should I be concerned I’m a target.
Looking for book recommendations (non fiction) - leadership, management or science/world related
Hey all - I got an awesome new job Accenture in the applied intelligence practice as a consultant. I am also doing my MBA part time at a T15 school. The MBA exit salary is on average 150k for consultants in my program. I was hoping that when I finish my MBA, I would be able to ask for a raise to match my salary to what those MBA folks normally get. Is there a way for me to request that in ACN? If so, how open are leadership to that conversation?
What's the normal/average percentage of performance bonus paid out at KPMG global services?
Seeking gift guidance for my mom! Her birthday is coming up and I normally get her experiences as gifts so that we can do something together (a show, a game, etc). I live far away now and it won’t be feasible to come home; she’s being pretty covid cautious, so most experiences are off the table. Any suggestions? She is 68, loves taking walks and talking to friends, and never feels like she has enough time in the day (1-2yrs to retirement). All suggestions welcome, wide price range!

How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Can anyone share their experience with having a child with a congestive heart failure? My child is having trouble gaining weight as a result (1lb a month at most) She's five months old and has a large ASD and smaller VSD. We are being monitored by a ped cardio. She'll need surgery in the future but they aren't sure when as she's fine overall. Can any of you share how u helped your child thru this? How did surgery go etc? I'm just so stressed and terrified about it all.
Friend wants to go into consulting (MBB) but is not good at casing - intelligent but cannot think quickly and cracks under pressure. Would a lot of practice help if it doesn’t come naturally to him?
Want to shift from advertising strategy into a brand side marketing gig or a product design role. Thinking about getting a masters MBA or masters in industrial design to make the shift. I’m having a hard time getting companies to consider me otherwise and feel like I have quite a few skill gaps to cover. Good idea or waste of money?

Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
I'm a consultant. A manager on my project doesn't brush his teeth and a little piece of me dies every time he opens his mouth (we share a conference room). What to do?
The ad industry is legendarily homogenous. Won’t unionizing simply close ranks & protect existing white professionals, who then protect other professionals just like them, resulting in LESS diversity?
Interesting article. Still largely against this kind of arrangements – probably because of my past and the fact that viscerally scared of being taken advantage of. That said, the article does nuance the whole topic. https://www.anothermanmag.com/life-culture/11193/the-secret-life-of-gay-sugar-babies
