Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?

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!

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.
Does getting to the hotel late Monday evening mean there are less “good upgrades” available? I have Ambassador status on Marriott fwiw

Considering whether to hire a personal admissions consultant (Stacy Blackman, mba Mission, etc.) or do Applicant Lab to help with resume, essays and creating a cohesive story. Can people share their experiences who have used either service?
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?
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.. 😁

Long term goal is to be a tech entrepreneur. I was all set and had my decision not to get an MBA, but then I checked LinkedIn. For almost every major tech company founded by a consulting alum, they all have MBAs. Am I missing something major here?
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
Gar nichts los in DE? 🧐 Wollte mich mal mit anderen Consultants über Gehälter unterhalten. In welchem Feld und welcher Karrierestufe seid Ihr unterwegs, und wie hoch ist euer (Ziel-)Gehalt? Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?
The head of my practice said he wants to use his father’s vaccine card (same name) to go to bars and restaurants. It is a crime. I wish he didn’t tell me. Who do I report it to? The firm? The ethics committee? The police? I feel like I’ll lose my job if I report him, but not reporting it feels wrong.
Anyone been through the in person interview at Amazon. 3 technical and 2 behavioral. Should I be worried about the technical portions being more difficult then ones on the phone.
