Can you get back Virgin Atlantic miles spent on booking a reward delta international flight if you cancel the flight due to coronavirus?
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
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

For a medical exemption from the covid vaccine is a medical note required if you are pregnant? Please don't lecture me about how I should get it when you know nothing of my situation.

Looks like Deloitte sent an email to all black professionals highlighting the impacts Covid 19 on our community, while also acknowledging the Ahmaud Arbery shooting and outlining some potential responses from the firm. First time seeing something like this, anyone else get the email?

Any ortho or ID docs know if the closed air circuit helmets used in joint replacement are useful against covid? I was thinking about using one over an N95 for intubations.
Anyone on this bowl did MBA to switch to strategy consulting ? Me looking to network and figure out the ROI / decide
Is networking still key as an experienced hire? Networking was really helpful when I was applying to consulting as a student, because of the clear recruitment cycle most firms followed. Now that I’m looking to switch to industry, I’m looking at specific roles / depts at specific companies. Companies often seem to want to fill these roles quickly so no time to network, and on networking calls people can’t help as much if you are targeting a specific dept. any thoughts?
I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.
If you’re sick and tired of extremist clowns pitching endless race/class/ideological vitriol, remember: elections matter, especially in non-Presidential and off-year cycles. Had Maya Wiley or one of the other leftists carried the NYC mayoral primary, this horrible policy would be going into effect next year.
Hi all! Will any kind fish be willing to read my resume and give me feedback? I’ve been applying to different position but haven’t had any luck. Someone mentioned it is too specialized but I would love that a new set of eyes could read it to make it more appealing to consulting recruiters. Would really appreciate it :)
Fellow people pleasing 🐠, please share any/all advice you have on how to set up healthy boundaries and say no to people. I’m tired of stretching myself thin to put others first, and I’ve been working so hard to change this. I feel like I’ve been this way since I was a kid and I really want to make an effort to change. Thanks in advance!
Accenture bench is deeeeep. Especially strategy.
Do you feel your company is representative of their claims to promote Diversity and Inclusion (ie. recruiting efforts, minorities in executive positions, community outreach).
I’m 29 years old and make just under $100k. I was saving up for a house but in the last year the prices have skyrocketed. In my area it’s about $350k for a house so I’m putting it pin in that. Anyways, I’m making my 401k, maxing my IRA, and have no debt. Is the next step maxing HSA and taxable brokerage? Any advice?
Just got rolled off a client for dui on my background check. Is this the end of my good reputation at the firm?
Hey guys Which tech consulting company pays £100k+ base in the UK for 6-10yes exp. to non-MBA’s?? Just curious!!
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
I’m always hearing about MBB having terrible hours and work life balance. Is this true? How many hours do you work per week on average?
Can someone from Deloitte help me to know exactly how many hours I must work in a year to achieve exactly 95 percent utilization? I'm trying to understand the difference between holidays vs. PTO hours
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.

Received an offer from McKinsey & Company and am super stoked to join, but I’m getting quite criticized in my personal life for the decision mostly because of the public image of the firm. I get where they’re coming from, but figured most of the consulting industry was like this, not just McKinsey, and strategy work is what really interests me. Any tips on how to deal with it?
