Is there anyone at Leidos, CACI or Raytheon in the DC Metro who wants to refer my husband? He's in final adjudication for his TS/SCI with Full Scope Poly, but his entire team was laid off (COVID). Looking for another contractor to pick up his clearance sponsorship so they can use his intelligence and language skills (and so he doesn't have to start the clearance process from scratch).
I'm a bad person. A girl I went to high school with has been downplaying COVID and been very anti-vax for the last year. Well she got COVID a couple weeks ago, and I chuckled a bit. Now she's at home on oxygen. I don't wish anything too terrible on her, but I hope this teaches her a lesson.
Please critique my annual budget. Family of four in the Bay Area. HHI: 850k Income tax: 300k Daycare: 50k Housing: 45k (mortgage + property tax + insurance) Grocery / restaurants: 20k Charity: 15k Random Amazon spending: 10k Car + gas + insurance: 10k Medical: 5k House cleaner / landscaper: 5k Utilities: 3k Retirement savings: 135k (maxing out everything) Remaining for taxable savings: 250k Don’t do enough travel but that is largely due to COVID. Saving 45% of gross is probably too much?

COVID looking at the nationwide protests like

First time dad of an 18 months old baby. She won't be going back to the daycare and will have a full time nanny.

Does anyone have insight into the truck market? I read that truck prices are inflated due to Covid (more people doing DIY, hauling campers etc) but didn’t know if that was credible. I’m thinking about getting one soon but not sure if there are any market factors I should consider.
Anyone else feel like they are their best selves when prepping for upcoming interviews? I'm 100% hunkering down, studying like mad, no alcohol/drugs + 8 hours of sleep + working out, fully isolating (order in vs grocery shop to minimize chance of COVID), learning an incredible amount to fill in any potential knowedge gaps. Like that scene in Rocky 🤣 That visible path to more $$$ is the greatest motivator...
Is it me or their Deloitte friends not taking this entire Covid thing seriously in their private lives? I keep on getting invited to these private Deloitte employee friend groups organized parties where the people seem to be rather careless about the entire getting tested and quarantining business.
Remember when Mitch McConnell called the Covid pandemic a "Blue State Problem"? Well, it looks as if the virus decided to switch parties.
Can we get these people to waive their right to priority COVID treatment? If they’re actively going out saying give me covid or freedom they obviously care less about covid than those staying safe
Can company ask for a COVID positive test results? HR is asking for "tracing" purposes. I don't really care to provide as I don't think they mean anything negative, but thought maybe I should be aware of what is allowed or not at least.

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
For all ex-Deloitte 🐠 I’m in advisory. Leaving 3 months before my 2 years is up. How does the sign on bonus repayment work? Do they take it out of our final check? Or PTO payout? If I wanted to talk to someone about prorating the amount to pay back, who would that be and at what point do I do that? I appreciate any input!
Lots of farewell emails this week at PwC. People getting laid off? Has anyone heard anything about it?
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
