Is it just me or does this article feel like an advertisement for Borosil company and their MD patting himself on the back? https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/02/perspectives/borosil-employees-india-covid/index.html
Any updates on the Pakistani Covid-19 vaccine?
Do you resign over email to HR/Coach or is a phone call more preferable in these Covid times?
Advice on how to identify open roles that are primarily remote/WFH but willing to travel when it’s safe? When I search on company sites, LinkedIn, etc. the roles are usually tied to a specific city, but there’s got to be more out there considering pre-Covid travel and now WFH. TIA!
The truth about how covid started
Disclaimer: I do not find joy in the circumstances I am about to describe. Having said that, I am experiencing minor Schadenfreude in the “I told you so” sense. My ex-wife, who told my kids that the vaccine will turn people into zombies (srs), got the results of her PCR test yesterday and confirmed she has Covid. She has been laid up in bed since Thursday and is miserable. Meanwhile, I got a positive PCR result but am entirely asymptomatic. I do hope she makes a quick recovery.
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
Not work related but idk where to ask this. We’ve been invited to our first post Covid cookout. It’s at my husband’s former colleagues place so we don’t the hosts too well but we know there are not going to be any kids so mostly a grown up football party. What would bring to it? Because of the current scenario I’m skeptical of bringing my home cooked dip.
I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often. But I’m wondering if this is something that is valued by upper management when evaluating their talent? Any thoughts from leaders and managers in consulting? I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.
What liturgical rite do you observe within the Catholic church? Ill go first, I attend the Traditional Latin Mass of the Latin Roman Rite underneath the one and holy Catholic apostolic umbrella of the church.
My school now has rapid result Covid tests so we can test the students (with parental consent). I’m wondering how many other schools have the same option.
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
Are annual physical exams necessary for young people? I am 27M, exercise nearly everyday, eat clean, don't smoke/drink, healthy weight, no medical conditions. My last doctor at the prior check-up was surprised that I was even doing an annual physical exam. Curious on others' experiences with this. TIA!
Sister is mentally ill and born with brain injury. I'm sensing she's on her way back to psych ward, as she's displaying her crazy symptoms again. Not looking forward to this
Just started working in big law. Did anyone see a shift in their immune system? I feel like I’m sick almost every other week.
It’s been a hot minute. Thai Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin Sauce (Keto). My pre-covid work clothes are now loose on me. I’ll have to buy a new work wardrobe wherever that may be. I quit my job and am back in school. Goodbye tax, goodbye busy seasons, goodbye billable hours.. 😁
Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
Anyone else getting sick of the grind and seriously considering a career move? What are you looking to do next?
HR professionals- are you requiring a negative test before any employees return to work after COVID? Some had very mild symptoms and one was asymptomatic. I’ve read not to push for a Dr.’s note and some people can still be positive yet not contagious. Right now I’m following the cdc guidelines of 10 days from first symptom, fever free for 24 hrs and improvement of symptoms.
Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers. I started a little bit before Covid and there were no bonuses given out by my firm so far in my career until this year because of it. I was passed up for my first real bonus with no explanation. Is it time?
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
Does anyone make employees submit their formal complaints via written/email? I’m tired of these “I want to complain and I want you do something, but don’t tell anyone” requests.
Just entered my staff 2 year this summer. A large (private) client just reached out thru a recruiter to offer me a senior accountant position.
How do you guys focus on workpapers with all the gossip and just small chatter that goes on around us? I find it to be extremely distracting. I want to use headphones, but that looks bad to the client
Curious - in industry do a lot of companies have internal consulting groups that function like a big 4 would? Analyzing and implementing regulatory, strategic or other transformational initiatives?
How do you respond to pushy HR people/ recruiters who ask your salary req in the first 5 mins?
Currently in B4 tax specializing in financial services. Looking for a tax manager position in pre IPO in Seattle area. My financial services background + no industry experience thus far have been a major issue getting through the resume cut. Does anyone have any tips, connections and/or anything to share on how I can make that jump?
Thoughts on using the $1200 check for a mileage run? These cheap airfare tickets are looking 👌.
Girls, what’s the best crib for a baby? I am trying to buy a crib. Also, any good and safe cribs to recommend for a baby boy? Thanks ❤️
For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
Operations & logistics manager or strategic planning exit ops salaries at Uber? Lot of consultants make the jump!
Does anybody know which countries allow non-US citizens from India? I’m trying to book a flight for my parents but all the available flights seem to be via countries where travel has been banned.
What is the internal partner promotion to external hire ratio at your firm? (And similar ratio at public firms for PPMD or partner equivalent )
Anyone here who interviewed with/ work for DoorDash S&O team? Would love to hear your experience and any advice. Thanks!
Promotion effective two weeks from now on 7/1, too early to change your job title on LinkedIn?
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Looking to break into big tech (FAANG, etc.) from GPS consulting. Is there anything I can do while in GPS to make myself a good candidate or is the solution just go to commercial and/or get an MBA?
16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
