Does anyone else get really terrible hangxiety? Lately with meeting new people post covid and my social anxiety I’ve been drinking quite a bit to loosen up and be friendlier, but the next morning I have ruminating thoughts that they hated me or maybe I did something weird etc. And yes I know logically I shouldn’t drink so much but I do love to party. Just wondering if I’m alone in this. Making new friends in your 20’s can be difficult
If your industry is severely impacted by covid, how is your leadership reacting? Are you seeing more cross-industry collaboration?
Are your schools talking about ACCESS scores not counting this year/kids not exiting next year bc of covid?
Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
McKinsey 🐟, is the coronavirus just rogue marketing for the new Netflix series Pandemic?
Am close to making Partner at my firm (T2 Strategy shop) but worries because I see many peers stagnate at my level for 4-6 years (I’m in Yr 2) and COVID crashes the pipeline (con’t)....
COVID brides: What do you say to people who question your judgement for choosing to still hold a (socially distanced, with masks) 2020 wedding in the U.S. during a pandemic? And when did/are you getting married?
Considering starting a consulting firm hiring mostly ADHD geniuses who are limited by normal office (pre-covid) environment. Taboo+Stigma would make winning business a little more difficult, but hires would have had some measure of success on C.V. Now consider the statement opportunity it might be for a brand to be the first client. Might be big news. I’ve actually started putting together a little deck. DM if this is piques your interest.
Last night I walked into my apartment that I just moved into with my boyfriend and he broke up with me. Totally out of the blue, no warning. We just got over having Covid together. We’d been together for 1.5 years and had talked at length about how moving in together was a step toward marriage, etc. Apparently he wants to go be free to couch surf and travel internationally and doesn’t want to commit. Just feeling really low right now not sure how to put myself back together 🥺
I'm thinking I should add some specific covid safety procedures to my syllabus. Has anyone done this and is willing to share?
Just a rant. The subway is my primary mode of transportation. Without fail, there is always at least 1 person - usually 2 - unmasked. I looked at an unmasked woman when the reminder announcement was made and she shouted, “whatchu lookin at?”. I said, “ignorance and selfishness apparently”. Look, I don’t want to wear a mask either, but it’s required and we are all in this together. I wish the MTA would enforce this.
Dear big four competitors; how is your RPA practice doing? And how has it faired post COVID?
It seems like each county/school district is responding to covid differently and the amount of pressure to return to normal varies. What's going on in your county?
How great would office emojis be in this app?
Deloitte Senior Consultant - Strategy. What does the compensation and bonus look like? Also what are the benefits? (PTO/Health insurance/401k match)
Before determining your tier, pay and bonus, the RP should schedule a call w the person who does your snapshot and you together so they cannot bullshit you!my RP said BS which wasn't true. (Contd)
I feel like I’ve networked (or tried to) with every single person from my school who works in consulting. No luck. My boutique is flailing due to CV-19, and then end is nigh. What do I do now?
How do you deal with imposter syndrome? I got promoted but I feel like I’m not good enough and I don’t know what I’m doing.
It makes me sad how low some of y’all’s expectations of life are. Where are my “we can simultaneously be successful and well-compensated and mentally healthy and have time for our families and hobbies” people at? If this sounds like a high bar to you, you’re who I’m talking about.
Anyone been to Le Bernadin? Is the 275 worth it?
