Have only been going out to grocery store / home depot since start of COVID. Feeling cooped up and sad. Any recommendations for a drivable (5 hr max) weekend destination around Atlanta that are safe to visit admist COVID? If would be great if you could share a recent experience.
Dress close for L5/L6? I swear I thought I saw someone in basketball shorts on a promo video of working/life at Google and my mind was blown. Excited to toss my suits since those don’t fit post Covid 🤫 I suspect slacks/jeans, with a polo or button up and a blazer but could be wrong.
NYC is requiring proof of vaccination for all indoor activities. That’s absolutely nuts (and I’m vaccinated)!
LA just enacted a stay-at-home order but exempted protests... they deserve all the coronavirus cases they have, and then some.
Some companies like Morgan Stanley are starting to require that their employees be vaccinated to come back to the office. Where do you stand on this - should your employer be able to require vaccination? Personally, I think they should be able to, but curious to hear your thoughts. ￼ Is your company requiring vaccination?
Anybody have experience living in Philadelphia but working in NYC? Considering this post-covid for family reasons and cost of living, and would likely only be commuting part-time. But TBH as a freelancer I’m most worried about the stigma of not being in NYC.
One of my clients started running a tight ship amid covid and requested hour wise consultant work report ... New BA submits "preparing the list and stress around it" - 1 hour across the week and sent this to partner 😂🤣🙏
How strictly is everyone following the Covid prevention guidelines? Are you doing indoor dining?
Would you do virtual long-distance dating during COVID with a weaker prospect of meeting in-person in the near future? Seems like a lot of effort with minimal likelihood of working out. Curious to hear others thoughts/experiences!
Are 401k’s really worth investing in these days? What are the % returns you guys have been seeing for the last few years? For those that have been working before 2008, how much of an impact did the housing crash have on 401k and how much did the recent COVID pandemic affect it?
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
Honestly don't understand why people are so opposed to going into the office. Is this because you think spending 20-60 min commuting each way costs you billables? Personally I need separation between work and home. It helps my mental health but the anger I see in some posts about having to go to the office is strange to me.
It seems like each county/school district is responding to covid differently and the amount of pressure to return to normal varies. What's going on in your county?
Does anyone know if you get Covid if you should get paid for the time you are off or no?
Booked a short weekend trip in Chicago awhile back for next weekend and I’m wondering how difficult it is to find stuff to do with covid going on. Anyone have any recommendations?
Have you had any cases of covid at your school?
For those who are already on work visas (H1B and others) in the US, do you anticipate that employers might move roles back to other locations (India, Philippines, Mexico, etc.) at a much bigger scale because remote working options seem a lot more viable thanks to covid ? What are your thoughts? Why would employers want/not want jobs to move to other countries?
About to turn 28. I got $100k combined in 401k Roth IRA and stocks. I’m also sitting on 95k in savings. Out of 95k savings I’m helping parents pay off the mortgage on the house. What can I do with other left over saving? I was looking to buy a condo in a high rise in Chicago but given COVID it probably won’t happen. Any tips/advise much appreciated!
What's going on with everyone regarding the vaccine mandate? How is it effecting companies and how does HR plan to deal with this disaster?!

I don't understand the level of bitching on this app. Do you guys really work that much? I haven't done shit all weekend for the second year. Am I just lucky? I feel people just create work...
When your friends deliberately wait for your turn to play the "synergistic management solutions" card during Cards Against Humanity...
Juggling between offer at JPMC as a software engineer (new grad program) or an offer at EY (tech consultant, also new grad). I have a goal to become a product manager pretty early (thinking of applying to Facebook RPM after 1 year of work). Which offer do you guys recommend taking? Im currently considering the EY route more since I would build more soft skills, still remain relevant technically.
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)
So, my best friend is giving me so much shade for "being in business (so many unethical people) and "how I get to travel every week while she barely affords grad school" - what can I do?
What is the WLB in the payment industry like Visa, Mastercard or Amex. Is it a good exit
Deloitte PPMDs, I can't figure out why D would not just reduce the number of temporary visa workers under H1B program vs. firing 5% of its workforce that are probably mostly US citizens. As seen here, D got approved for 57,259 temporary visas. Please explain. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/deloitte-top-participant-in-h-1b-foreign-worker-program-by-far
Funny how some firms have analysts at entry level that then get promoted to consultants, and others vice-versa. Wonder if it affects exit-opportunities at all 😛
Hey EY and BCG folks - what do you think about our CEOs being official Trump advisors now? I completely dislike that we are normalizing this racist misogynistic muslim-ban person.
