Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
Planning a short trip to Costa Rica. I am vaccinated, but do I need a Covid test to get back in? Any tips thanks
Facebook has followed Google in making vaccination mandatory to work in person at the office. More companies will likely follow suit.
Does anyone feel guilty taking sick leave?
Fishbowl = Coronavirus Work-life
Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
Booked a short weekend trip in Chicago awhile back for next weekend and I’m wondering how difficult it is to find stuff to do with covid going on. Anyone have any recommendations?
Being sick on keto sucks! What do you guys reach for? Wanting ramen noodles, applesauce and toast ☹️
I was supposed to go out of town this weekend but I’ve been up most of the night because I’m sick 🙄🥺 Now I just feel sad and bored, so much for celebrating on being vaccinated 🥲
Question regarding Salaried Employees and sick days. I’ve never worked in a company where, as a salaried employee, I had to deduct SICK days from my PTO. What are your practices?
What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
It’s crazy to think that there have been more reported coronavirus deaths in the state of New York than Asia, Middle East, Africa and Oceania combined.
Anyone have experience with bariatric surgery, good or bad?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Hi moms - I had posted earlier about nanny not active with toddler ( toddler bottles up and melts down a lot in the evening), let baby cry etc. I had the gut feeling that she is not the right fit for us and many moms here agreed. I am now trying to tell her that she isn’t the fit for us but this is my first time. Can you provide suggestions how to let go a nanny ? I plan to provide her severance for 2 weeks but I am not sure how to tell her - short and sweet
Currently a post-MBA returning consultant at MBB. What firms should I target with significant Private Equity Ops groups or value teams? Have to leave after 2 years in consulting because I was sponsored but want to make sure that I understand the point at which I should be reaching out, etc.
We always keep hearing about the bad WLB in MBB, especially BCG. Want to know if it's actually true, or is it an untrue rumor spread by people who couldn't get into these companies. (Note - I am talking about incremental WLB issues, over and above the issues at Deloitte S&O, Accenture Strategy, etc. as these issues are common in management consulting)

Is anyone here content with just being a run-of-the-mill creative? Does there come a point where you’re not seen as valuable anymore? I’ve been in the industry for five years now and basically made nothing good or interesting (I work at a big nyc holding company owned agency). I’m already in my mid 30s so I’m getting worried that l’m getting to the point where I’ll be knocking on 40 with the book (and salary) of a 26 year-old.
https://joinfishbowl.com/post_0um71i A lot of debate here and we’ve gotten a lot of “ranges.” Anybody have actual insight on the avg/median comp Principal/MD/Partner or how the comp model actually translates to numbers? Several of my peers would love to have a clearer sense of this salary trajectory in figuring out next steps.
