I had interviews with Grant Thornton. The last manager I interviewed with said he didn’t know what the next steps were after he turns in his assessment. How long should I wait to ask the recruiter what the next steps are? Or is anyone familiar with the interview process ?

How do you handle people who are like "I work 9-5, I can't get out of work, can you interview after?" No, because those are our business hours. Do you think we just work non-stop? Also, does anyone else get calls from applicants after 9 pm at night? Like I don't understand what makes people think that's okay? Then again, I am new to New Jersey, Kentucky was never like that.
Mid thirties M live in SoCal, F 🐠.... ready for a quarantine connect and build from there, DM me. Open to summer hikes or walks on the beach 🏖 or zoom/FaceTime calls. Life is great and now is the perfect time!
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀

Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
