Got an admit to Haas EMBA program. Not sure if i should join, given the whole covid situation we are in. Would love to hear others perspectives.
I am so tired of Deloitte allowing bias towards MDs. Only because you are not an equity partner, your voice is automatically muted, you can contribute but you don’t get to decide. The minute a senior manager gets promoted to a principal, he gets on top of an MD with 15+ years experience and treats you like he is your boss. I mean this is a cast system at its best! I can’t wait to leave this firm, COVID can’t end fast enough.
For those who’ve been VERY careful throughout covid (aka takeout only, no gatherings, outdoor activities only, etc), when are you easing up? I received my first shot, but I’m hesitant to totally let go just yet given we now have all 3 major variants in my state, my city has been a popular tourist destination, and it’s hard to tell who is and isn’t vaccinated. What % for first shot received or fully vaccinated do you think makes sense for easing up? Or just wait til herd immunity?
Thoughts on the impact of the covid crisis on M&A and capital markets transactions? Country and sector pls
Hi Fishes, My colleague's younger sister is looking for a job as a fresher. She has recently graduated (B.com) and is pursuing US CMA. She's also done a couple of internships and is highly proactive and motivated. The family has been struggling to meet the ends specially due to Covid Pandemic. Tried applying via Naukri and LinkedIn but there's hardly any response. Can someone please refer her in their organization for a relevant role for a B.Com graduate. DM me for more details. TIA
Just witnessed a mess on flight with flight attendants escalating a 2.5 year old not wearing a mask. We need to drop mask mandates for kids. It’s completely impractical and causing chaos for travelers and flight attendants. Europe is age 5 and that seems way more reasonable.
What do you think teaching will be like after COVID? Do you think we'll change anything permanently?
Best/most useful COVID19 purchase?
Worry about Omicron? Cases have increased by fivefold in the city I live just during thanksgiving, and nobody cares about it anymore. Everywhere is crowded with people. I feel like Americans are giving up themselves on this.
My husband & I left NYC this weekend to escape COVID...food & supplies are limited, hard to imagine being cooped up in an apartment for many weeks. We’re basing ourselves in the Poconos for now (cont)
I drafted a very long memo detailing the strategic framework of our covid response, direct manager made edits and overwrote my info with a lot of wrong info and submitted to the executives. Should I say anything? I am leaving the team but still with the company. I am afraid she will throw me under the bus later on when audit clocks in with a self contradictory info finding.
LGBT friendly recommendations for what to do/eat/see in Kauai/Honolulu/Maui? Pretend there was no COVID epidemic.
Any other women experience spotting after receiving the vaccine? I am meeting more and more women saying they have.
Just a rant. The subway is my primary mode of transportation. Without fail, there is always at least 1 person - usually 2 - unmasked. I looked at an unmasked woman when the reminder announcement was made and she shouted, “whatchu lookin at?”. I said, “ignorance and selfishness apparently”. Look, I don’t want to wear a mask either, but it’s required and we are all in this together. I wish the MTA would enforce this.
Supposed to take REG a week from today in CA and my exam was just canceled from COVID cases spiking. NTS expires 12/31, FAR expires beginning of Jan, REG is the last exam i need to pass all 4. Haven't seen any updates on CBA pushing back exam expiration dates for CA, I feel so lost and have no idea what to do and am so scared of losing FAR. Anyone in a similar situation in California and have advice? Who did you contact/what steps are you taking?
Hospitalists - anyone else worry about the INSANE bills people are going to get from their COVID hospitalizations from the number of inflammatory markers we are checking DAILY during these 1 month stays? I really question the utility of daily trending when it’s not going to change our management. Like who cares what the CRP is 3 weeks out if they are clinically looking well?
Has anyone travelled with Turkish airways to India and back? Any covid issues? Was planning on making a short trip and Turkish is the cheapest
I was up for a June promotion and now am doing the work sans title due to COVID-19 - now with no promised promotion after 2 years as an AAE. Thoughts? Do I find another job elsewhere, or stick it out?
COVID brides: What do you say to people who question your judgement for choosing to still hold a (socially distanced, with masks) 2020 wedding in the U.S. during a pandemic? And when did/are you getting married?

Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?
Any advice for a new associate without a strong finance background who recently got staffed on a diligence project?
Client's Christmas gift came early this year. Two months of analysis is invalid, we hit reboot on everything. #ho ho everybody.
I sobbed for 3 hours today before giving a 30 minute presentation that I was perfectly prepared for and that went well. My diagnosed anxiety is too severe for this industry. I’m a high performer, Ivy League business school grad, with top competitor experience and I do good work, happily. But the intensity or high stakes or scrutiny involved with everything here wreaks havoc on my anxiety levels. The nerves are just so overwhelming. I thought I could manage this but sadly I can’t :/
When you meet junior people from your own firm, and they ask in the most condescending way possible "so, what firm do you work for..."
