I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
4 days PP. Husband was not feeling well and tested positive for covid. What should be my next steps? I will get tested in the morning. And now should we separate into different rooms? Should I call the hospital as we have a 4 days old baby and he should be checked? Baby and I show no symptoms but I am just so torn apart after the birth that I no longer know what I feel.

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb

Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck?

Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?

I’m working on my first-ever paid consulting gig. Was brought on to a project by another consultant - I’m marketing, he’s comms. We’ve been working on a project proposal for a company he’s already been working with - looking like it will be approved this week. My question is: Do I invoice the consultant who brought me in for time I spent on the proposal or it is non-billable like it would be agency side?

I just accepted an M offer from Deloitte but don't start for at least another month. Haven't even had a chance to give my current employer notice. But I already have folks from Deloitte asking to connect to get me staffed on their project. Is this typical? Best way to respond? I was hoping to have a little time to orient myself -- don't feel I even know the right questions to ask to see if the project would be a good fit.

Thinking about joining tech. 🐠 What are the non-FAANG companies do you see the highest potential (thinking that joining FAANG today probably doesn’t provide that much upside)? From a preference standpoint, most interested in fin tech and health tech. But trying to solve for RSU potential above all
