How do you concentrate on work when personal issues get in the way? My fiancé recently told me that I don’t do anything worth appreciating in the midst of an argument about division of household labor. Although I normally do almost all of the housework and at least half the cooking, I have not done that in the past two weeks as I’ve been prepping for trial. I’m furious of course, but have other things I need to be concentrating on.

Planning to quarantine w my SO in a cabin for a bit, but it doesn’t have internet and they want to charge us an obscene amount to install it. Does anyone have any portable internet solutions that can handle zoom calls, etc?

In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)
Reminder for any members of AIR or production company EPs/HOPs/Bidders, if you wanna join the Green the Bid presentation on zoom tomorrow morning please hit me up privately!
Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?
All y'all who be testing providence during webex meetings 😂😂😂 https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/28/us/good-morning-america-will-reeve-no-pants-trnd/index.html
It’s really incredible to me how people who go into tech and have such in depth knowledge of systems can’t figure out how to use Slack 😂
People that are reaching out to strangers via linkedin: how are you conducting your networking sessions nowadays? Is it still primarily a phone conversation? Zoom webcam call? Or are in-person coffee chats coming back?
Should I just directly Slack someone in Sloan adcomms asking them whether they’ll send admitted and/or enrolled student a gift? I was really looking forward to that book man.
What’s everyone’s favorite zoom background?
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
How do you cope with work in early pregnancy and exhaustion? I don’t have lots of common pregnancy symptoms except cramps and fatigue. The exhaustion is on high today!!! Yawning through my zoom meetings and it’s only 11am here on the west coast. I’m also a team lead so I need to be present on meetings. I don’t know how to cope lol. I slept a lot through the holidays but now I’m back at work. I even overslept for my 8am meeting today 😫😂.
If you’re going to shout “shut the fuck up” to your staff during a conference call make sure your skype is on mute first. Amateur hour out here.
I swear one of my clients just stares at their Skype list of contacts waiting for me to get online in the AM so they can ping me.
I have a review soon and I’m due for a promotion (so I’ve been told). I’m taking the lead on a big project right now (for our biggest client). If I am to be offered a raise, can I negotiate? Continued
Have any big 4 announced compensation yet?
Does anyone know how competitive LBS/INSEAD are to get into coming from MBB? Have been promoted at BCG and am considering LBS/INSEAD to get more of an international experience, but no clue how competitive it is. I have avg GMAT scores and undergrad for BCG.

GT MBA (Management of Technology - similar to an MIS) worth it for a tech consultant that wants to stay tech focused, but didn't get a Stanford/MIT worthy GMAT?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?

New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-22/bosses-are-clueless-that-workers-are-miserable-and-looking-to-leave?srnd=premium Wonder what the numbers would be for consulting - naturally higher because the tenure is low to begin with but curious on what it would be above that due to the pandemic and WFH.
EY is by no means perfect but the way they are handling the virus situation so far is admirable. The situation will continue to evolve and change things but hats off to the best Big 4 👏🏽
Has EY opened up its London office ? Also, are they still giving WFH reimbursement to new joinees ?
If you get some development points and a partially at level in your third year, are you screwed for promotion?
I'm considering a couple of positions at AWS, Azure, and GCP but I'm unable to make up mind on where I would be a good fit. I also want to understand career growth and exit opportunities. Outside of talking to recruiters does anyone have any guidance? Unfortunately, I don't have a strong network around the positions I'm considering.
