Florida hits an all time high in new cases, and his solution is to punish schools trying to protect their students and families???? https://www.wfla.com/community/health/coronavirus/live-gov-desantis-holds-press-conference-in-cape-coral/
I never thought I’d say this - but I have cancelled my trip to the Modex industry show in Atlanta next week out of an abundance of caution over coronavirus related to elderly relatives.
So how do you feel the consulting life is impacting your wellness as you hop over the age of 40, I’m finding under Covid I’m much more healthy/lost weight etc.
You know what’s been fun as a L&E attorney during this pandemic? Having clients and partners take their frustration out on you when, as here in CA, mask mandates and other COVID requirements change.
Those of you who relocated during Covid, how did establish a friend network in a brand new city?
What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
Are there any CDC restrictions preventing the administration of multiple COVID-19 vaccines? Had the J and J one-dose vaccine 6 months ago and tried to get the first of the Pfizer two-dose vaccine shots today and was turned away by both the NP and Pharmacist.
Despite our covid numbers going up, my district is starting in-person learning. I teach first grade and am scheduled to go back Dec 8th. We are using a "concurrent" model where we will be teaching both in person and online students simultaneously. Mondays will be planning days. Is anyone else doing this? What advice do you have to do this successfully without being totally exhausted?
Looking for some advice. I’m in very early pregnancy, and thus only my husband and I know. My firm is doing a conference with approximately 50-100 people for two days this month, so I still won’t be telling anyone as I’ll only be about 9 weeks. I’m currently vaccinated, and the conference is requiring anyone unvaccinated to take a PCR test prior to arrival and wear a mask the entire time, but I’m extremely anxious to go given the increased risk of Covid and pregnancy. Should I go?
We need to improve our ability to take care of people in their homes. COVID is a perfect use case, as better to have these folks avoid the hospital
Covid is terrible, however it’s kind of fun experimenting with different types of programs and lessons. What is your favorite?
How can I tell if I have covid? Im a little weak and a sore throat the last two days. No fever. Does the virus hit you hard like the normal flu?
DPW has made the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all U.S. offices. Anyone who doesn‘t have the vaccine will not be permitted to enter the premises. Can I please check how the other BigLaw firms are dealing with this? Don‘t want to start a political discussion, but this seems very intruisive to me.
Guitar lessons in NoVa/DC, where are they? I'm the type of guy who hires a bodybuilding coach because he wants to get in shape, I don't screw around. I want a guitar coach/teacher but at least when I was looking a couple of months ago I couldn't find one with trusted reviews on places like Craiglist or simple Google searches. Recommendations? Places to look? Is the supply just rock bottom due to COVID?
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
Can company ask for a COVID positive test results? HR is asking for "tracing" purposes. I don't really care to provide as I don't think they mean anything negative, but thought maybe I should be aware of what is allowed or not at least.
Can COVID be transmitted through water?
So there's quite a bit of emerging research showing that Covid's spike proteins wreak havoc on the body's vascular system. How is the spike protein in the virus different from the spike protein that the mRNA in the Covid vaccine is instructing our cells to produce and our immune systems to create antibodies to? How did scientists ensure that the spike protein in the vaccine won't have the same effects as the protein in the actual virus?
For folks who get a company phone, do you keep two separate phones - one for perosnal and one for professional use? At my current company, I just file an expense for my monthly cell phone bill, so I keep my own phone and use it for both work and personal use. About to start at MBB soon and wondering if people just use the company phone for both use? Is it ok/accepted if your checked personal emails, social media, other apps etc.. on the company phone?
When you work from home and set the alarm for 9AM and consider that "sleeping in"... I feel old.
Damn, Trump just told our firm to stop diversity trainings or give up those federal contracts. Dude is straight evil.
Anyone else get irrationally bothered by spastic typers? The kid in the cube next to me POUNDS on his keyboard with sudden flurries of frenzied typing and slams on the backspace and return keys.
Do any of your agencies employ remote freelancers? Do you feel it hinders the work process or otherwise?
Super unhappy with my current project/firm and looking to pivot quickly. Struck out at an MBB final round last week, had been prepping for a while. What’s the best course of action moving forward? Continue networking, applying, and trying to get referrals? Not sure how much longer I can take it doing current work. For context, went to an Ivy and have 2YOE. Any help’s appreciated.

Does anyone working in M&A Post Merger Integration, OCM, or Transaction Support have any thoughts on PHR (Professional Human Resources) certification? Worth pursuing?
Been in this game for years and I'm still not clear, is Big 4 Advisory/Consulting considered Tier 3? Is this because we don't generally do strategy-related work?
Anyone have insight into salary at Charles River Associates? Associate level, thanks in advance!

Any ideas on how to disconnect and disengage from the multiple projects they've thrown me into as they extract every last ounce of labour from me in order to make it another 6 months? Have to stay that long so I don't pay back the signing bonus. I usually give work my all but just don't have it in me anymore. Ideas on how to coast? And no, flagging my burn out won't help. They know. They don't care.
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?

Clients spent 20 minutes during the middle of a meeting to shit on BCG for getting them laid off from their previous jobs. How's it feel to be the Bobs?
I started in January and I already feel that this job is having a strain on my relationship. I’m still working weekends after busy season and my s/o is upset I barely spend time with them. The rest of my team is constantly working so I feel bad if I set my boundaries and take time off.
