Been looking for an exit since January because I don’t like the direction my position has been going. Covid screwed it up, but what gives with companies not allowing a candidate to live in any city when the travel is 80-100%? I’m not going to be home so why does it matter where I live?￼ I’m 30 minutes from an airport and I can be anywhere in the US within 5 hours with no issue. Anyone have any suggestions to overcome this without moving?

Hi, anyone know about cool teams at B4 or consulting firms that are making big strides in the „ethical culture“ space?
People with kids, how has the pandemic affected their social life and how have they adapted? My 13 year old brother is doing zoom school and has not seen a single one of his friends in person since July. (but plays video games with them sometimes) I am pretty concerned and try to encourage him to see them distanced/outside but he isn’t interested— i think b/c of pandemic anxiety. Is this normal?

Tell us how long you've been a teacher without saying how long you've been a teacher. Ex: Overhead projectors were like gold 😂.
Any moms here have experiences with hypnobirthing? Any videos or courses you recommend? My baby is due in January and I haven’t started thinking about birth yet! 😰
I feel like Deloitte is getting real slimey. Putting more than the typical number of staff on PIPs, to give themselves the opportunity to fire people for cause in a month or two without severance or anything.

Me and my husband are unsure whether we want kids or not. What are some good resources to read up on to understand what we would be signing up for by having a child or missing out on by not having one? Also ladies who have/do not have kids. What were your reasons for deciding against/for having kids. I am extremely confused and do not want to run out the clock and realise later that we should have had kids. We like kids (we always point out kids to each other in public) but unsure about our own.
“when I think back, from my obviously privileged position, on the texture of daily life during the past four years, all the attention sucked up by this black hole of a president has been its own sort of loss. Every moment spent thinking about Trump is a moment that could have been spent contemplating, creating or appreciating something else. Trump is a narcissistic philistine, and he bent American culture toward him.” I think about this all the time as I spend hours in this bowl.
Tax question for any Accenture people who were part of the layoffs in August...did you see anything weird with state withholding on your W2? I relocated from VA to NJ in early 2020 and my state withholding switched to NJ when I moved. However (and I never noticed this at the time), all of my earnings, including severance, paid out PTO, and COBRA true up, are shown as taxable income in both states. My tax accountant is scratching his head.
I'm so sick of getting compared to only females I work with. We aren't even the same staff class and my manager always groups us together whenever he talks about the work I'm doing
Being asked to permanently move service lines within current firm. Hours would increase by 10/week and work is not of interest to me. Fair to ask for raise?
I watched the election coverage on the dailywire.com last night. I actually enjoyed it. One of my favorite parts was when they had respectful but very opposing conversation with people on the other side of the ile. It was refreshing and interesting to see the respect and hear the different points of view.
