COVID life of virtual events: What is the best executions you’ve seen for them? Anything that breaks the norm? All of the ones I’ve attended have been draining with an overload of faces on screens. Anything out there shaking things up a bit?

Any of them that are done over email instead. Most meetings are a productivity and time suck that’s really more of a lecture.

I hear you. I actually do not mean meetings though l, I speaking about conferences that have now gone fully digitally due to covid. They are still happening and I have faith someone does it better than most. Curious to hear what people have seen.

Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!

Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA

How do you guys deal with frequent brain fog? Ive always had it a bit on and off but lately I've felt almost lost in some work meetings because I can't retain anything. I don't smoke weed, I rarely take low dose of anxiety medicine, drink socially and I'm pretty healthy on most fronts but I did have COVID almost a year ago. What else could cause this?

Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?).
