Hey 🐟, flying out in a few days to see parents. Two 3 hour flights. Any recommendations to best avoid possible contact with covid besides mask and carrying sanitizer wipes?
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
It seems that a lot of women in accounting struggle with finding a relationship in the middle of their career. I’m finding myself to be in the same boat, and am thinking about seeing a therapist to learn to be okay to be alone. I don’t want to use dating apps as it feels forced, and I know I am craving a man to fill up my time and that’s not the way to go. Covid is not helping. Relatable?
For the people claiming Joe Biden is “hiding”. Where do you expect him to go? He’s not going to go throw a rally because he’s not dumb enough to kill his own voters by spreading Covid and encouraging people not to social distance. Where else did you expect to see him, that you didn’t?
I’ve been promised a promotion. The discussion started many months ago before Covid. When the pandemic hit, I stepped up & worked insanely hard, above my level—it’s been praised and recognized, but not rewarded. I was told the promotion will be delayed for reasons not to do with me. Am I going to get strung along? Should I start looking? Can I ask for more money when it does come? I believe I deserve a lot more money, but I’m afraid of sounding greedy or entitled, especially during a pandemic.
Can we finally agree that indoor office open floor layouts suck and are over rated now? And they should be changed because of COVID. I never want to have them back when returning to office because could never focus and do my work with the buzz around me. It was also a random invitation for co-workers to talk to me whenever they wanted at my desk, which was annoying lol

If Toy Story was real... Do you think the toys would try to help us? or would they stay still and leave us to fight COVID19 alone?
Planning a short trip to Costa Rica. I am vaccinated, but do I need a Covid test to get back in? Any tips thanks
It’s taken over a year of looking but after being passed over for promotion at my current agency and having to do the work of two people for six months due to covid, I just got an offer to move to a better agency with a promotion and a nearly 50% raise. 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
My husband turned out positive for Covid 19 and I’m negative (still). Anybody out there who took care of someone with Covid cares to share advice? 🙏
Any avid cyclers on here ? Been looking for a bike for awhile but it’s been extremely tough due to Covid. Low supply. Any recs ? Thinking gravel/CX - need 56cm.
Been posting my more expensive watches here, but what do we think about this? Cannot afford the Double Red Sea Dweller lol, but this does a good job of giving me the feel of it. Robust and Good Movement though !! Thoughts?

PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
How do you represent your time consulting on your resume when looking to go back to industry? I've been on the same A&D project for my year+ at ACN. i.e. what do you share about client work?
TFW you are so engrossed in your phone you realize you walked in and sat in a stall of the other gender's restroom ....then panicking to figure out how to leave.
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Partners won’t turn down more work despite the associate exodus. I get it. Firms are businesses. But, there will be consequences. Deadlines will be missed, things will be sloppy. PSA to associates: you’re the loser here because we are in a service profession and firms make profit off of how many hours they can squeeze out of us minus our fixed salary. Put yourself first because no one else will. To those who say it’s justified cause $$$, I say no job should require us to sacrifice our health.
I was asked what my target salary was for art director in Boston. What is a good salary for this area?
I absolutely hate my project, but keep getting extended. what reasons can I give to leave the project besides outright telling the SM that I hate it. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. TIA
I landed a first-round interview at a MM PE fund! It’s 30 minutes with behavioral and high-level technical questions. What knowledge should I brush up on? Any advice? I have a finance degree but all of my experience is in MC so I’m definitely a bit rusty on finance concepts.
I’ve had one interview at a company setup through a recruiter. The first interview the hiring manager said that they were posting the job on their website that day to ‘cast a wider net to get the best talent’. Immediately after the interview he told the recruiter he wanted to bring me onsite in 2 weeks. So I’m in the final round tomorrow, but now today two other recruiters contacted me about what seemed to be this job. Cont..
Can anyone recommend good books or articles on startup org charts and hiring? Think we’ve hit early signs of product/market fit, but not sure who to hire next, in what order, and how the org should evolve over next few years.
