Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)
I did my first videoconference mediation today and my cat knocked over my laptop while the mediator was talking to me. Thankfully I was wearing pants. Any other pets interrupt your WFH?
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Ready to start day 2 WFH with my inspiration mug. What does your coffe mug say this morning?

I switched two years ago from regional real estate/energy to a local small, but established residential real estate practice. While I’ve gained so much practical experience and run my own book here, I want to shift to a non-traditional remote role in real estate but keep getting turned down. I have strong credentials but I’m worried this small firm experience is killing my marketability to large companies.

Have been having random bouts of lower back pain that take about a week to clear up - haven’t had any major documented back injuries but have been sitting a lot with WFH.

Taking a half day of PTO this Friday. Cheers to everyone who can get out of the office early today after a crazy week of grinding. To those who can’t, may the PPT winds always be at your back.
So bankers are getting Pelotons or even bonuses (10k for Moelis, 20k for citi analysts /associates) for too many work hours and the burnout feeling. Pretty sure most consultants feel the same way. Anything EY is considering doing to boost the WFH burnout morale. Can uncle Mitch buy us all a peloton to compete with industry standards
Hi all! Does anyone have any advice/resources on how to prep for business intelligence roles interviews? For example, data analytics/viz quesions (not necessarily coding on spot but explain how I would approach a data related request).

Anyone keeping up with the immigration developments via the reconciliation bill? Seems hopeful. Thoughts?
Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house? Some in-house is pretty sweet (Spotify, Square space, FB) while others are blah. Is it okay to ditch agency life as a mid-level when you decide the portfolio isn’t worth it?

If I have 4.5 YOE & applying to McKinsey, can I still apply for the “Senior Analyst” position, given the bar may be lower than the MBA level? Or at that point, do I have to be in the MBA-level pool? TIA!
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ?
