Would you let your vaccinated parents take a flight to come see your new born? I’m not sure how much longer to live with this paranoia 😢
Thinking of adopting kitten(s). I've only ever rescued adult cats so I don't know much about kitten needs. I don't travel often; SO in PE with similar long hours but no travel. Any tips?
Woman sitting beside me on the flight is continuously snorting and sneezing without covering her nose. Aaaargh, guess who's getting the virus! 🤷♀️
Quick question...do Indian citizens need transit visa if passing through UK? Flight is from NY to AMS with a stopover in LHR (T3 to T5 transfer). Have US and Schengen visa...online forums are unclear.
Honest question: Why do people do Consulting when Big Tech offers higher TC, zero travel and often times more meaningful work?
Walked into a mall in China. It has the same smell as the Sheraton lobby. I could feel tears building around my eyes...

Any recommendations for healthcare consulting firms with a local model with minimal travel (any city)?
Any other United flyers having issues with showing up on the upgrade standby list after the PlusPoints change?
Normally I post about what I see at airports. I saw this article about American Airlines and thought I would share for those who fly American Airlines. https://viewfromthewing.com/american-airlines-updates-its-rules-has-no-responsibility-for-delays-and-cancellations/
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
Is it worth having a travel industry CC (ie Marriott)? I used to travel all the time for work but won’t be anymore and don’t plan to in the future so I’m not going to accumulating hotel points but don’t have enough for 100% free stays and want to start booking some trips in the near future. I currently only have CSR and CF.
I need to get 3,000 PQPs between now and Nov 30 to re-qualify for United 1K. Anyone have any great ideas how to do this - or know of any domestic flights that maximize the PQPs?
Met a super cool guy on the plane that works in Finance that I wish I could be friends with in my travel city but I lost his business card and don't know his number now 😫
How is Initiative? Interested in thoughts on the culture, leadership team - how they’ve handled pivoting to WFH during the pandemic.
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
When is an appropriate time to share with my relationship leader and the director that I closely work with that my wife is pregnant and I would be taking paternity leave early next year? I am hoping to get promoted at mid year and don't know if letting the team know that I would be taking off would impact my chances of being promoted?
Just moved to bigger place and finally have place for an office (yay! was working on the couch for a year…horrible posture now…) Got an electric standing desk, a great office chair, and a nice desk light…any other recommendations for a comfy wfh set up?
Any Big 4 people who work in actuary here? What's the work like? If I pass the first 2 exams, do I have a chance of transferring in?
I need some help. I need to lose 40 lbs. 5’2, 170 lbs. i started working out more but then stopped because I was miserable doing it. Decided to focus on diet and I just end up binge eating. WFH also makes it harder to be active esp when working out (the cardio at least) makes me so miserable. I do walks sometimes but that obviously doesn’t burn enough to mean much. At this point idk what to do. Keto helped in the past but now I can’t even find the drive to do that! What do I do?
An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?
Could someone please direct me to resources that explain/demonstrate how to teach any elementary subject ( including Specials) simultaneously when your school has no webcams, your Smart Board is to be used as the monitor to see the remote students and the in-person students are not allowed to use technology? Or, if this is your situation, share how you are set up delivering lessons under these 3 conditions.
Is there such thing as early promotion in the Big4? If I don’t get promoted this October, when is the earliest I can get promoted?
Class of 2020 graduate. I am working in-house in technology transactions/commercial but I’ve been trying to get my foot in the door in the privacy/cybersecurity area. I have my CIPP/US and I’m in all the Privacy groups/bookclubs/etc with my bar association. Still absolutely no luck when applying for positions. Any suggestions? Would you recommend getting a privacy analyst role first to get some experience?
director of diversity, director of culture, what do they do in the agency? Seriously wondering
Moving from big 4 to big 4 should you always counter their offer? Like what if it’s not the best offer in the market but above what you make now and you just want fo secure the position?
Any agencies giving people time off for the one-year anniversary of WFH? I heard WK is completely closed today.
How intense are FAANG case interviews?
Emerging companies lawyers at Cooleys, Wilson, Fenwick, Gunderson, DLA, Latham and Orrick etc. how much weekend work do y’all do? Thinking of retooling from LevFin; sick of weekend commitment papers.
Advice on gracefully declining an interview without burning bridges with a recruiter? I was submitted for something before I agreed to it.
getting rolled off a bad project early because of a bad fixed budget celebrate with me please 🥂 🍾 🎉
One basic question on long term travel. The income is shown as my income plus whatever I spent as part of deloitte due to travel. Due to this I'll fall in higher tax bracket. So will deloitte pay for that additional tax that Ill end up paying on my actual salary due to higher bracket taxes?
How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
