I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️
How many of you have seen this email or received it? Nice addition to unlimited vaca policy. Also to the folks who haven’t visited their family since COVID
How do you all plan to transition back to your old lifestyle now that corona virus is over?
What will happen when we go back to normal life? I’m assuming COVID won’t be completely gone, so how will it be controlled?
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Genuinely want advice - in Seattle just for covid (likely until next spring at least), and been casually dating a guy for like 2 months. We’re both ‘cute’ towards each other (everything from cuddling to real compliments on personality/attractiveness). He was scrolling through his phone and I saw Tinder still downloaded (but we’re unmatched on my Tinder). We haven’t had the ‘exclusive’ talk so i don’t fully expect him to be, but would like clarity on if he is seeing anyone else. Should I ask?
Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
Anyone who got COVID and used hydroxychloroquine. How was your experience and did it actually make you feel better and recover faster?
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.
Asking for a Fordham Media Studies graduate! What are the best ways of getting into the industry now? It's incredibly hard for graduates because of Covid.
Thoughts on employers mandating employees get vaccinated? Colleges are now making the covid vaccine a requirement if you want to attend college. Looking like employers are going to start doing this as well (some have already started).

Under-reaction, appropriate amount of action, or overreaction to the Coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Please just choose one, curious what the people think!
Is the M&A pipeline drying up for 2020? Worried about the impact of coronavirus and extended time on the bench. Already on the bench for 2 weeks, know some folks who've been benched since Jan.
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
Who else has introspected about how short life is, quality of relationships, work/life balance, security of finances, how things can change rapidly after seeing the COVID world. Share your thoughts?
Moving to NYC for work and looking for places. Deciding whether I should live with random roommates or shell out an extra couple hundred a month on a studio/1BR. With COVID getting worse and winter coming, I see it both ways: I may appreciate having other people to live/interact with but I also appreciate a space completely to myself where I'm completely comfortable considering I may have to spend a lot of time at home (I will be WFH most days). Anyone have a perspective? Has covid changed it?
Are any of you guys personal trainers/coaches at fitness studios on the side? What cert did you do and any tips?

Would it be possible to go from FP&A at a bank to investment banking without an MBA? Background includes transaction advisory and previous banking experience
I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening. Someday we see EY name popping (Wirecard) KPMG or some other Big 4 but we still hold a strong position in the market. Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?
Anyone from google can shed light on comp range for the manager position in their S&O team? Would be even more helpful if I can get an understanding of the base+variable split. Thanks!

Quick question: is a GBP 100 000p.a salary at a FAANG a good salary when considering London? I would be emigrating. 7.5YOE leaving MBB as a female; and suffered growth set backs many times.
Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.
Slalom D.C. 🐠, what is the culture like there? What type of work/industries you focus on? I’ve heard good things but nothing specific about D.C. and i gather Slalom varies quite a bit by market.
