Have a friend in need of remote work (kid with bad lung disease at home, doesn’t want to risk bringing COVID home). He has a bachelors and masters degree in math but no formal business experience. What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?

Tell him to see if there is anything he's interested in on Slalom's website. Happy to refer him.

I’ve been interviewing with consulting companies recently and for every position, I’ve been asked if I’m okay with traveling (in case we get back to pre-covid). If your friend is not alright with traveling then consulting may not be for him. On LinkedIn, you’re able to search for roles that are remote so that might be a good option. Wish the best for your friend and his kiddo.

That is correct but based on OP’s post they asked getting into consulting which I took to mean a consulting role. There are many types of roles at consulting firms such as HR, Finance, etc. which may not require travel or being in office but consulting roles are typically client facing and depending on the client may require being in person.

Wanted to get opinion from community. Should I continue as EY FAAS manager M2 (120k) or take job as an assistant controller with biotech for 170k plus bonus and stock? Assistant Controller job would require me to be in office few days a week (about hour and half commute one way) whereas faas is remote for foreseeable future. I also don't know way to get promoted to FAAS senior manager ( m3-> senior manager?). I also don't know FAAS SM salary.

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.

EY specific question - Do you have to pay back parental leave if you take all of it and quit before returning to work? General question - is it in bad form to legitimately take parental leave thn quit

I’m probably late to this realization since I was still in the office regularly at my old firm, but is anyone else struggling with object permanece in the WFH environment? It’s so easy to put matters out of mind when you don’t have physical contact with the people you’re working on them with.

Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
