I’m struggling to perform and my boss is getting mad at me and yelling and it’s getting hard. COVID is making it harder to perform and I’m hating myself
Is there a trusted source or a group to donate money in India we can contribute to? This covid situation is getting out of control and I want to help at least monetarily. TIA
How is the threat of Covid-19 any different now compared to mid March ? Do we have a cure ? No, vaccine ? No? Any clue of how many infected ? No. How many have had it ? No - what will be different ?
Aight how bad is this COVID wave actually if you’re boosted? Is it just the unvaxxed or unboosted getting it? My friends are feeling super down
I got Covid over Christmas. With the new rules, I was technically able to go back to work last week (5 day isolation rules) but my daughter couldn't go to school yet (10 day isolation rules) so I worked from home.
I go back to the office tomorrow and I still feel weird about being there. I'm sure I would still test positive but they want us in the office.
I'm stressing out thinking about people coming to my office and talking to me even if I am wearing my mask when they come in.
Anyone else have a corona-inspired song lyric stuck in their head? I’ve got Britney’s “my loneliness is kill in’ me...” on an unending mental loop. (Alongside the cardib ‘Coronavirus!!” Naturally)
Where is easiest to travel to in Europe in summer given covid restrictions if fully vaccinated?
Any one else feel like they’re becoming more reclusive (disregard COVID) as they grow older (mid to late 20’s for example)

Is doing pushups every day multiple times a day healthy? What are some things I should watch out for or do to avoid building a dysfunctional body overtime. I am still exercising at home due to being high risk for covid.
Got an interview for a position in a different industry. This is my first interview in person since COVID started. I thought it was kind of weird they wanted me to come in, and when I asked about the precautions their taking - they said they obey all CDC standards, but didn’t mention anything about masks. When I asked, they said “you can wear one if you want.” Idk how comfortable I am going into an office where ppl aren’t wearing masks. Thoughts?
Covid has hit bain particularly hard...

Is anyone currently job hunting during COVID? How has it been for you thus far? Do you have any tips?
My workplace has gotten more toxic during the pandemic, so wondering what my options are!
Store shelves are out of cold medicine and at-home covid tests. We drove around for over an hour after seeing that they had them in stock in multiple stores.
I don't get it. For all that talk about covid not being real and how a cold is nothing people sure are running through it all rather quickly.
Have your clients cut back on project scope or cut completely as a result of covid-19 yet?
Where do you shop for dresses as a guest to weddings? Haven’t been to one in years, this is an outdoor one due to covid. Might be chilly at night & looking for something classy. 24F
Any Big 4 folks make the transition to MBB? If yes, How did you do it and do you have any advice for someone who wants to make the move? ( 2YOE, 1 @Deloitte in a data protection role )
My last uber trip..way way back in the day when travel was 'fashionable' for management consultants 😑
Was very nervous, just gave 2 months notice, instead of anger, I got congratulations and offer to work a few hrs/week as a sub while in school if I want the money.
If you're worrying about it, dont.
Once someone gets into a B4, it is easy to get into the other B4s. Does the same hold for MBB?
Do I need to tell my biglaw firm that I got contacted to do an anonymous interview by Chambers? I only have good things to say honestly but for some reason I’m paranoid that I’m supposed to tell them

One of the people I manage is failing...hard. I (and some others on the LT) have tried hard to foster success. We gave him a softball internal project with a solid PM. Contd.
This is my second year in accounting and am wondering how many of you have dealt with men questioning things you do at work. I feel pretty gaslighted from male coworkers
Who else gets anxiety prior to work-related phone calls? I'm great in person, but the phone is terrifying.
Cancelled my Thanksgiving plans to fly and see my extended family because of COVID... nothing more, just sad 😔
