We’ve returned back to office, but joined the team during COVID. Surprised management hasn’t gone around to introduce themselves to the new staff that has returned on the floor. How do you guys normally approach it? Taking initiative and introduce yourself to the Group Heads? Maybe it’s me, but I tend to get nervous talking to group heads or senior senior people.
How would you feel being invited to a late August wedding where the couple asked that you be vaccinated in order to attend? Let’s assume honors system. 150 people invited, all outdoors. 25% of guest list are doctors. Mostly progressive crowd. No kids.
At my old firm, I would wear my faux leather spanx leggings with heels/booties and a nice top/blazer that covered my butt. Since covid, we dressed more casually. I’m now at a new firm. Are these leggings generally acceptable to wear in office?
Literally me anytime I come to this thread and see partners saying they can’t possibly take a 15-20% cut on their $1M+ salary, meanwhile there’s staff out here making $56k; or, when I see that most of y’all don’t understand basic science, including the fact that young people are a source of exposure and transmission of not just COVID-19, but of all viruses, in turn placing those who are immunocompromised, have preexisting conditions, or elderly at much greater risk. Y’all really do be wilin’.
I'm betting some creative at John St right now is trying to find a way to claim credit for corona virus as a stunt for no frills or cashmere toilet paper for their 2020 AOY video.
Liberals pretending Biden had anything meaningful to do with the vaccine is probably the single most entertaining topic to read comments about. They’re trying so hard and I’m here for it!
Some companies like Morgan Stanley are starting to require that their employees be vaccinated to come back to the office. Where do you stand on this - should your employer be able to require vaccination? Personally, I think they should be able to, but curious to hear your thoughts. ￼ Is your company requiring vaccination?
So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?
Remember when the New York Times pushed for mass estrogen injections into American men as a treatment method for Covid-19? https://web.archive.org/web/20200707203514/https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/27/health/coronavirus-estrogen-men.html
Friends, I’m looking for a few good sources to help my clients *feel* how the COVID crisis is affecting the Latinx community, especially “less acculturated,” Spanish-dominant folks in the US. Could be a podcast episode, photojournalism, artwork, an op-Ed. I have lots of numbers and stats, but I need help finding something more evocative than hard-to-feel-real percentages. Much appreciated!
Does not seem like it's safe enough to fly yet 😳 https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/521786-woman-in-her-thirties-dies-of-covid-19-aboard-airplane
Anyone know if there are drive-through COVID tests in Queens or other outer boroughs? Don’t really want to wait 2 hours in the cold again.
Roughly 2 1/2 years in consulting, with promo conversations looming around the corner, is the title change really a big necessity to make a meaningful comp jump or is experience/framing sufficient when making a move? While I haven’t enjoyed it from the get go, consistent 60+ weeks (exacerbated with COVID) have really triggered a realization that a more reasonable WLB is absolutely my target. To the extent a bump could coincide with that...just gravy
Hi everyone! India is really struggling with covid currently. “In India’s devastating second wave of coronavirus infections, patients and their families are on their own, fighting to save their loved ones in an overwhelmed system where ambulances, hospital beds, oxygen, medicine and even cremation grounds are in short supply.” Please spread the word and donate if you can. https://givebutter.com/sewa
My friends were supposed to get together soon for a bachelorette party. One of the girls did not get vaccinated and now has Covid. She and the others are still going to continue with plans because it will have been right at around 3 weeks after she tested positive. I’m wondering if I should still go because my boyfriend is a cancer survivor, and his type never goes away so he’s higher risk. Bf and I are both vaccinated. Is 3 weeks enough time/are we good since vaccinated?
Moving to nyc with my covid dog. Any advice? She’s only been in suburban areas growing up
Have a 1 bedroom apartment in Gold Coast that I’m looking to sublet from Nov - Apr as I will be moving to a different city at the end of the month. Signed my lease in the middle of COVID rent suppression so should be a good deal on price (my 1 bedroom is now cheaper than studios in my building). DM me if interested - happy to share more details!
I just got invited to a dinner meeting with 20 other consulting professionals from my new office. It’s going to be an indoor dinner and there’s nothing on the invite indicating whether this is optional or mandatory. Here’s the thing: I’m pregnant - fully vaccinated, but I’ve still been trying to be really careful about Covid - no indoor dining, always masking indoors. I don’t actually know anyone at the office yet and don’t want to come off as contrary… Any advice on how to handle?
What's with all of the videos of people intentionally trying to spread COVID to others? Are they all be sociopaths or is there something additional going on?
My company is starting to lay people off. However, I'm currently less than 25% busy as most of my customers are dealing with coronavirus.Should I ask my boss for more work or would that put me at risk?

😂😆, really ?!
I miss college so much. I was just reading an email chain back from 2011 with my college advisor and it brings back so many memories 😢😢😢
Best travel fails you’ve seen? New BA on project... told him the client name and project was in Rochester NY. He calls and says taxi won’t take him to client site. He had landed at LGA 🤦♂️
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
PwC wtf is this sharing rooms at PwC University? Why do I work for a Big 4 if we can't even afford to have our rooms at a mandatory training? Anyone that's done PU what's the deal?
Laid off by Acc, have final round interview for role at client as a new director who would be sponsor to the Acc project. If I get the job, how do I mess with them?
All of my procrastination is rooted in fear, I’m an incredibly anxious person and I end up delaying even small tasks like emails because it’s so paralyzing. Resources to help improve on this?
So people were saying it was cruel to adopt a dog on another post because of how little time a traveling consultant would spend with it. What about an in town bf/gf? I'm about to start a relationship.
