I do not want to go back to the office after coronavirus has stopped/reduced. My productivity has increased, my work quality has improved. Anyone else feeling the same way?

So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
Who are the best people at agencies to connect with if you're a Production Company looking to work with them? Is it Creative Directors, Is it Producers, Production Managers? Pre-Covid I would sit in lunch meetings with Production companies but really who would get those companies in the door and paid?
I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….
Could insurance companies stop covering covid related hospitalization / costs for unvaccinated? Is that legal and would that move the needle on vaccination?
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
What do unemployment benefits look like now? 450/week plus an additional 600/wk if it’s covid related? Is it taxed as income?
My husband and I have concert tickets to a big outdoor festival that was cancelled for covid and is now happening in late August. His brothers and some college friends are flying in to stay with us. We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?
Lot of negatives from Covid. Am curious to poll this crowd on what we think the long term positives will be, both for consultants and society at large. Let’s generate some positive vibes.
Anyone know how to get the underlying dataset for the Bing Coronavirus tracker? Or a similar data set?
Where is the future home for principled, democratic conservatives? Do we think a new conservative party can build around the likes of Cheney, Romney and Kinzinger? How can they gain critical mass? From rewriting state election laws, to fomenting insurrection, to going to war with public health officials over COVID vaccines, the GQP are irredeemable at this point.
K work: I charge X amount per court appearance (flat fee)+ hourly billing. (Criminal) COViD 19 has allowed for telephonic appearance. Do I bill for appearance (as if in person)or put it under hourly?
Laid off due to covid and starting delivering food through UberEats. Do I still qualify for unemployment? I can’t find anything on this and calling is no use
My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
My sisters coworker is a confirmed case of Covid - do I need to alert my own coworkers? (We live together which is why I’m worried but unsure of etiquette)
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Hi All, single female with endometriosis here. The last few months have been really trying for me, for many obvious reasons and some personal. But wanted to share that this morning my doctors office received the authorization approval from AETNA to use the egg freezing benefit. I cried all morning as this isn’t something I’d normally be able to afford on my own. Never give up hope even during the most difficult moments. ❤️
Feeling horrible! I messed up one of the case interviews and silly math! This was the second round/interview; the first round/interview was terrific and math to the point. Pretty sure they won't call me for the final round of interviews now.
Starting a new industry job next week and this is my first non-consulting job. What should I expect in the first couple weeks, especially given that it’s the start of holiday season?

People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
How much of a bad move would it be to accept an offer and then quit before your first day in favor of working for a competitor with a better comp package? Is this a cardinal sin or understandable? Comp is more or less 70% better at competitor.
Headed back to a client site for the first time since February 2020. What do people even wear anymore?! I feel like a kid playing dress up. Help.
Has anyone gotten an IUD through planned parenthood? My insurance doesn’t cover it at my OBGYN and I’m a huge advocate of PP but just want to hear others’ experiences
A few months ago, I interviewed for a job I really wanted. They said it was between me and an internal candidate but that they were giving it to the internal candidate as a promotion. Just yesterday they reposted the role, so I reached back out to the recruiter. She said it is the same role, and they thought they had a decision but are starting the search over again. How do you interpret this? What could have happened? Should I try to reapply?
Best provider for renter’s insurance?

Anyone here transition out of data engineering/analytics consulting into bizops/strategy role?
Hoping to do a 4-7 day end of an Australian vacation in the Philippines or Indonesia. I would love to do some hikes, beaches, and/or see a cool food scene. Which is better for those?
Timeline to expect for federal hiring?
When do you have to give notice if you’re going to another Big 4? No later than once you’ve formally accepted your offer? Not sure what’s required so appreciate the insight (can’t ask HR without giving myself away!)
Any thoughts on Morning Brew as a workplace? Love their newsletter and podcasts. I am super keen about the space but I'm not sure if it's worth the pay cut from Manager level in MBB
