Any kiddos have their second dose of the vaccine yet? How were the reactions? Should we expect to have a “sick day” tomorrow if they get the shot today?
Boss doesn’t help me I don’t help them...I don’t volunteer, I leave early and the crappy summer/fall party you’re planning...probably gonna call in sick for that one. That’s what happens when you only
I know someone who is on medical leave but they’re not really sick. Should I report them or mind my business?
Hey fishes, I will be joining Deloitte USI as a Consultant (SAP) next month. Appreciate if you could help me up with a few queries! 1. I have heard Deloitte provides access to platforms like Udemy, Coursera. Do they have special discounts on various courses? 2. What is the leaves policy like (Sick leaves, vacations, etc). Also, I have heard that 25th December to 2nd January week is a complete off, is it true? 3. Has anyone done SAP certification and do they provide SAP Learning Hub Access
Was listening to a podcast this morning and this guy talked about a tax strategy of buying land, sitting on it and depreciating it YoY... I never got so sick so fast 🥴
I’m a new lateral 3rd year in a niche practice area and the partner I do most of my work for with called me today saying he has a medical emergency and can’t look at emails today/tomorrow. We have several deliverables due this week and I’m the only associate on his projects. HELP
Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
So sick of working hard to please the people above me and in turn they couldn’t care less about me or my wellbeing. Once busy season is over, I’m out. Can’t do another busy season.
How do you feel about splitting everything 50-50 with your partner? I don’t feel as rigid about it bc I feel it balances out one way or another, but my partner feels as if he owes me if we don’t split 50-50 and I pay more. I get where he’s coming from but 50-50 just feels transactional and not intimate. For context: I make 3x more than he does and he’s still finishing his medical fellowship, so I don’t feel it’s a matter of feeling less than.
I am planning on giving my resignation notice in the next week. I still have sick days I want to use up. Does anyone know if I’m permitted to use my sick days during my notice period?
Anyone else feel like all the travel has made you immune to getting sick? Everyone I know with a ‘normal’ job has a cold or the flu.
Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning. I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.
Currently on short term disability in CA and trying to figure out what the tax situation is. It looks like they don’t take out taxes, so should I set that aside? I can’t find any info on whether it’s tax-free income but I definitely don’t want to assume incorrectly
I now understand why people don’t trust for profit medical institutions. For the last few years my doctor has ordered the same biopsies and tests for me. This year she ordered an invasive surgery. I got my medical records and had my friend who is a nurse read the documents, & she didn’t understand why some of the tests were performed or why the surgery was recommended when 1) the tests came back low risk 2) she said it’s abnormal to do that procedure, they usually go a way less invasive route.
Anyone seen 60min report bout Halyard/Kimberly Clark surgical gowns not passing strike thru tests? We changed to these few yrs back at UCSF to save costs and complained bout this. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-investigates-medical-gear-sold-during-ebola-crisis/
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
For those looking for an exit
I love my new client side job. But the west coast based team is not considerate of my time zone. I’ve been here four weeks with no improvement despite being vocal about it (within reason). My manager works non stop so I am sympathetic to that. But it often means I go days without seeing my young kids after school. Any suggestions?
Apart from schools with rolling admissions or guaranteed interviews, has anyone heard about R1 interviews yet? If so, which schools?
Had a successful screen call for Deloitte strategy consulting, and the recruiter promised to schedule follow up interviews within 2-3 days. I followed up after waiting for a week and was promised a response from another recruiter. It’s been another 3 business days. I hope your consulting teams are not as bad as your recruiters..😑

Neighbor’s kid started practicing piano all day long. I support the learning but goddamn the kid sucks at it, and it’s hard listening to this trap house dubstep jazz all day long while I work, and I don’t want to wear my headphone all day as a solution. How to approach their parents? Can you even lower the volume of practicing piano?
Any tips on how to roll off a project that you’re not fully engaged in without offending the senior managers on the project?
I'm getting back on the road and back into consulting after a multi-year hiatus in industry. Was previously a Marriott commit but with the m&a wondering if Hilton or Hyatt might be a better option?
