With COVID-19 getting worse, is there any way to help our old people? I can’t imagine they can fight for food/medicine/supplies. Any organizations doing this work, or ideas on what I can do?
Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k
I just need to get this off my chest. I went from insurance defense to workers comp because I like that side of the v. and I thought it would lead to a decent pay raise. I wasn't making market value at ID firm and the firm had no more money to give (sometimes had to wait a week for paychecks to issue due to finance problems). After a year at this new firm, I definitely have my bearings of WC and ask for a raise during my review. That was denied and they had their feedback. After about 6 months..
How many of you have lost weight over the past 2-3 months in order to reduce your risk of dying from COVID-19?
Dear Diary 😉 Covid has made me even more weird than I normally am not to mention very lazy. Let’s see I wake up and just lay there for an hour doing nothing. Then I’ll do some quick naked yoga. Hop onto my first call. Then go take a shower in between meetings. Next onto my next call. In between there is a quick break to make coffee which I gulp in 3 mins flat. Then I FINALLY brush my teeth and do my eyebrows. Back on a call then I’ll put on clothes. Next I’ll scroll on social media aimlessly CON
1 year anniversary with bf in two weeks, I have no idea what gift to buy him. Any recommendations? No ‘experience’ related ones, given the covid situation. Thinking of $100-$300 range

Boomers are upset with indifferent attitude from millennials over the virus. Remember the indifference of student loans for 10+ years that has crippled our generation? (Cont’d) https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-dr-birx-calls-millennials-the-core-group-stop-coronavirus-2020-3
I am due for promotion next year from S. Con to Manager. I was assured that I would get it this yr but didn't happen and now the partner tells me that it's definitely going to happen next year. I have got an offer with 50% hike from a well to do start up but for the same profile. Should I make the move or should I wait another year? In a dilemma, kindly advice. I was also awarded the president award this time - but I guess that was more like a consolation for not getting the promotion.
I found this super interesting - potential link between outbreak of coronavirus and pagolin trafficking. https://www.instagram.com/p/B8lg5ZkF6nn/?igshid=1hokza4nq0vby

10 years total experience. 3 years experience as AD in a small-ish market but prior to that was all big agency experience in a top market. What salary would you expect?
Cut a corner too short in a garage and hit a post with my car and It’s about $3000 to fix and will take at least a week. I’m debating paying out of pocket or going through insurance for this. my deductible is $750. Geico gave me accident forgiveness so that means they won’t increase my rates right? I pay $100/ month for insurance right now. I also pay for rental reimbursement in my car insurance but I’m 24 so if I do end up needing a rental car would I have to pay the difference?
Left my wallet at home and I'm on my way to the airport! Will I be able to board or should I turn around and miss my flight?
Does MBB administer case studies for lateral hires at the manager level? Currently at Big4 and being recruited for manager-level position at MBB.
Thinking about making the switch from my small-mid sized firm to maybe big 4 or private due to a sexual harassment issue, but am nervous about the jump. How bad is it really out there? Talking (cont)

Is it possible to get hired into Deloitte fed advisory as a senior consultant with 2 years big 4 fed experience and a cpa?
Broad question: Would you pay the sticker price for a non-HSW M7 MBA for two years of “self discovery”, likely without a significant increase in salary (but new industry)?
