Anyone wonders what happens if you are working in US as non resident alien and got COVID19? Nobody is going to care? 😕
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Today marks 6 months since my dad died from Covid. Thinking about all of you who lost loved ones during this difficult time

For those of your who are currently pregnant and got the vaccine, how did you feel after? Did you have any side effects? Were you nervous or anxious to get it and if so, how did you conquer your fears? I am nervous to get the vaccine while pregnant due to no long term data but now with all the mask mandates lifting I’m even more nervous to not get it with the increased risk of getting covid. Any words of encouragement would be much appreciated! Currently 17 weeks along
I’m done with this contrived stress. I want to run off to Buenos Aires for a few months. I want to sit in a cafe, enjoy a nice cold Quilmes and people watch. I wonder how cheap travel will be to Buenos Aires after Covid. Their economy is f’d right now
What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?
Is there an unspoken code that MBB doesn’t discuss salary? I feel like visibility into their whole comp package isn’t accessible at all
Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication
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)?
Not to start a political debate… I am not anti vaccine but have not wanted to get the COVID vaccine. I think I will be getting the vaccine tomorrow. Anyone else feel conflicted who originally really did not want to get it, but was kind of feeling forced to get it?
Anyone been to Disneyland lately? Are there still long lines? My wife and I have been under a rock staying at home due to covid and having a newborn at home and being extra safe, but I wanted to take my wife to Disneyland for Halloween. Is it relatively covid safe there?
I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
Which McKinsey office is bigger - LA or SF? Especially for operations/implementation practice. Is there any culture difference?
Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=. The caveat: can wait 1 yr where supply MIGHT catch up a little to flatten out this crazy market while interest rates still haven’t crept up to that 4-5% average. Ill have more buying power with prices POTENTIALLY decreasing and more money saved for down payment.can skip starter and go straight for forever home. Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr

What is the best way to ask hiring managers about their people development skills? Finding it kind of hard to gauge with all these virtual interviews but want a manager who will actually help me grow.
Cancelled a phone interview 5 hours before the time it was supposed to start by emailing the scheduler and recruiter, thanking them for their Time & asking to remove me as a candidate. Did I nail the
Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.
Exit options after 6 months in ZS? DAA here. WLB has landed me in hospital twice and my client seems to only care that in my absense, work gets delayed. Also, please recommend any skills one should/can learn on weekends to enhance selection.
Can (should?) I name my clients in an (industry) job interview when I talk about my past experience?
