Any help much appreciated! What kind of covid test is needed for travel to India? Is RAPID test accepted? Need to travel for a family emergency
So the county I live in and the surrounding 3 counties have a total of 120 deaths from COVID. Yet we are still on full lockdown. I really don’t think a blanket lockdown is the best method.
Hey folks at Accenture Strat, were you traveling every week pre-COVID? Also, what’s the expectation after the pandemic?
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Any recommendations for a micro wedding venue (upto 15 people) in New Jersey/New York area? Had initially planned a wedding in home country but all plans have gone in vain because of COVID situation. Trying to find a decent venue last minute(wedding is in 3 weeks)
I want to get something really special for my husband this Christmas. We’re not spending the holidays with any other family (COVID) and currently expecting our first baby in the spring. Any ideas?
I moved to a small town for my ex (think, if Buffalo NY was a tier 4, this is a tier 6 or 7) and the dating pool is... Limited. there are two decent sized cities about 100 miles away where I do well on dating apps when I'm in town (pre COVID). Am I weird for trying to date in those cities versus the cesspool I currently live In?
For those who exited from Audit, How would you compare your work hours compared to the Audit? Please provide your current role as well! I saw that in deals, the hours are much more random and schedules are much more tighter! I am also curious if it's temporary workload considering the amounts of deals post-COVID.
Can I disclose a public sector client if it's public knowledge to an interviewer? As in our contract was published and reported on, is it ok for me to say I work on it? Also the project is a covid project and pretty obvious to connect the dots if I describe my work. Been through 5 rounds with an investment bank without disclosing and have a final interview with an MD.
Hi Desi Fam, I noticed a difference between the general consulting bowl vs desi bowl where almost everyone in the desi community is for the covid vaccination. What are some key reasons for the difference from the general US population where a large % are anti-vaxers. Thoughtful answers only (and not answers like we are smarter).
I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.
Curious, how many of you have a work teammate or family member sick with COVID-19? (I have none so far, knock wood, but an acquaintance or two.)
1yr associate- My supervising partner in commercial is known to be a nut cracker, but he’s also very highly regarded for his work. He’s been coming down on me for careless mistakes in my papers (docket no., venue, verbiage). I know he’s right. I had two clerkships and hate clerical errors, but they have always haunted me. He’s telling me they have to stop.. or else. Help? I have a one year old baby, five year old son and just lost my stepmother to Covid. Can’t handle a job change right now.
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
I recently tested positive for COVID. Luckily I feel fine and am working/quarantining at home. However, I told my roommate and she refuses to get tested and is still going into her office on a daily basis (staunch conservative that says she feels fine and has no symptoms). This obviously infuriated me and led to a big fight but she won’t budge. How should I handle this...?
Live in the bay area and have a net worth of ~600K. This does include our house and 401K's. Both my partner and I are in our early 30's and I am unsure if we are making enough that it makes sense to live here. Our combined HHI is only ~260k. We both do not have any RSUs. Anyone in a similar situation and addressing the issue of potentially moving to somewhere more affordable like Texas? Feel like I am not keeping up with the pace of career progression and net worth in the bay area.

I am planning to take term insurance for 500k, which one do you recommend ?. Some people are also suggesting disability insurance, do you guys think is it required?. I know employer provides disability insurance. Can we buy disability insurance outside .
If I had a traditional IRA before being employed in a 401k eligible role, can / must I roll that IRA into the 401k or can I leave the accounts separate without deleterious tax consequences?
Laid off and unemployed for a while. How bad is it if I portray myself on job applications as still working at my former job?
I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
