Any suggestions for managing sleep with weekly cross-country travel? The 3 hour difference & long flights are killing me. I'm always either struggling to wake up or struggling to fall asleep.
The San Diego Zoos 2020 Audited FS (CohnReznick) excludes a disclaimer of opinion, and gives a fully unmodified opinion, however the balance sheet shows a $1 balance for all revenue producing zoological assets with a disclosure explaining there is no objective basis for establishing value, however Sea World does have their aquarial assets on their Balance Sheet. Plus the SD Zoo uses ZIMS to track all their animals, including all attributes (ages, sex etc) which the fs says is not possible. WTF
Friend of a friend just died of covid (delta). Not vaccinated. Please be careful out there everyone. I wish this was over but it’s not.
When is an appropriate time to cut off your availability for client calls? On travel days I make myself available from 8am-10pm and fridays 8-5. Weekends as needed. Is this too strict?
San Francisco here
Captain: "Welcome to LAX...our gate is occupied, should be just a few more minutes." Shocker...
Have a Delta credit card? Can you get in SkyClub? You have 2 free premium drinks per DAY waiting for you right now.
Slalom consulting in San Fran. Thoughts?
Don’t really see the purpose of FIRE unless my passive is like $300K+ a year - enough for me to travel around and try new things on daily/weekly/monthly basis. Time with no money can be quite boring
I played golf the last two days then came home and packed for morning flight. Work hard, enjoy the weekend!
Anyone ever have an unused ticket that has been paid for by the company? Can you use these for personal travel? First time this has happened, so not sure, but I have a year to use it.
I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?
Taking an international flight out of BOS, not checking any bags, if my flights at 9pm what time should I get to the airport? Dont gave global entry
Please critique my annual budget. Family of four in the Bay Area. HHI: 850k Income tax: 300k Daycare: 50k Housing: 45k (mortgage + property tax + insurance) Grocery / restaurants: 20k Charity: 15k Random Amazon spending: 10k Car + gas + insurance: 10k Medical: 5k House cleaner / landscaper: 5k Utilities: 3k Retirement savings: 135k (maxing out everything) Remaining for taxable savings: 250k Don’t do enough travel but that is largely due to COVID. Saving 45% of gross is probably too much?
That one client where nothing ties 😡
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
Hi Guys, Any idea, how many days it takes for the recruitment process for Deloitte to be completed? I have cleared my 2 technical rounds and Managerial round is pending. Is there any concept of hiring freeze currently in Deloitte? Thanks.

Hi everyone, Deloitte immigration office paused all the Green card application, any thoughts on this? Is there possible we can file by own lawyer and only request Deloitte submit material? Overall, I’m 2nd year h1b, want to start the process ASAP.

Any Accenture Interactive account folks on what makes a successful Account Lead at AI. I've been approached for a "Digital Transformation Executive" role, but my knowledge of digital transformation/CX/BX is cursory at best. I crashed and burned pretty hard at Publicis Sapient (now back industry-side) and am wary of going back into the digital transformation space. However, the AI folks insist my general business background, MBA and brand strategy experience will translate to success.
Anyone else on the bench atm iust chilling on Monday? I have none meeting for the rest of the day so just hitting the gym right now.
Struggling heavily with mental health amid the crisis, due to loneliness and the gradual realization that we're really in this for the long haul and things likely aren't going back to normal for a long time. Zoom calls help a little but not that much and the constant barrage of people talking about 'the new normal' only makes it worse. Any tips/advice?
