Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
Hi all I’m meeting my supervisor/coworkers at a happy hour for the first time later this week after starting my first job post college completely virtual. I’m feeling pretty nervous about it since social situations/meeting new people were always hard for me even before COVID. Does anyone have any advice to help with this?
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Any firms hiring in the healthcare space? Was laid off due to covid-19 a few months ago and would love some help getting back to work. Thank you In advance for the help/suggestions.
If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?
Just letting everyone know that the covid 19 trend is the "covid 20"...just like in freshman year in college...if you didnt put on 20 pounds...good for you but you're not in the cool group. Please refrain from shaming those that put on a few pounds here and there.
In other news: Deloitte is full of trolls that are trying to convince you you're about to be laid off.
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
It’s crazy to think that there have been more reported coronavirus deaths in the state of New York than Asia, Middle East, Africa and Oceania combined.
Looking to return to Big 4 as a consultant now that I have some experience; however, I’m not sure if the reason I’m not getting any interviews is because of covid or what’s on my resume/lack thereof. Has anyone gotten hired at Big 4 during this time and have any help or insight for me? Thanks!
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
Pre-covid did B4 have Holiday/New Years parties?
I got my second COVID shot yesterday I'm hurting pretty badly today. Muscle aches and head aches what were your home remedies?
While working from home during COVID-19, do we need to post LCA notice at our home or file H1B amendment?
Fish in restructuring: How many hours are you charging per week since COVID? When do you expect to travel again?
Gonna start new project after 5 months on the bench. It's a miracle they haven't fired me 🙌
I read on Management Consulted that OW don't specifically recruit post-MBA. How accurate is that?
Have one week for shopping mortgage for first house. Where do i start, any online sites , credit unions or mortgage agencies that are offering low rate loans. First time home buyer so no clue what to look for. Any tips to work with PMI, points , loan terms.
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
How Safe Is Flying in the Age of Coronavirus? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-19/how-safe-is-flying-in-the-age-of-coronavirus-quicktake
After flying coast to coast for a year, I got a mental breakdown yesterday and can't stop crying in my hotel room last night, I would like to get a new job with higher pay but visa limits my choices
For you that tip Ubers and expense it afterwards, how do you keep track? Always update a spreadsheet afterwards?
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Should I stop depositing into my 401k?
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
Does loyalty to a particular firm matter or should one keep switching every 2-3 years to maximize ctc? Will ctc increase by the same amount if you stay long term in a firm? From a big 4 perspective, will loyalty and number of years at the firm matter to make partner?
Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
I’ve seen a lot of post on FB about BCG Platinion that lean to the negative side. I am being approached by a recruiter for a position in Europe. Anyone willing to provide more detail on their experience? Maybe willing to chat? I’m also curious if I should be pushing for principal. They mention PL, but that seems like a step down. Thanks, fam!

Hi fam - visa question, I may get a new project for 8 weeks at a new location. Will I need to file an H1 amendment if I am going to be at the client site for less than 30 days? Thanks!
How has your WFH experience during the pandemic impacted (or not) your sense of loyalty / willingness to sacrifice for: - your team - your client - your firm
