Biggest pros for me: very fast promos and good pay Biggest cons for me: tons of work and without travel, not lucrative enough

like

Pros: $$ Cons: everything

I’ve always looked at being a consultant as being a professional student. So basically the same pros and cons as that but you’re an adult

like

Pros: compensation Cons: it can be a grind and WLB isn’t always there

like

Pros: lots of learning every day; good (but not superb) compensation; colleagues; perks Cons: little time for family if you have them; travel; wlb; pressure / stress; you are serving clients not behind the driving wheel

I lost a parent recently and flew to india from the US, took the week of dec 14th off, planning to get back Jan 2nd week. The recent UK bans have me a little worried that something similar may happen in the US. Anyone recently flown from India to NYC willing to share your experience? Also, does EY have a bereavement leave policy i should charge my time to? or does it all go to vacation? Also for context, how much time off is considered okay in such situations?

I am 26 weeks pregnant and a wreck emotionally. My husband has to be at his parents house cause his mom is recovering from a surgery and his dad is a doctor and has to go see patients. So my husband has to go take care of his mother. I have two options. I go with him to my in laws but I get very anxious when I am there and the other option is I stay in our home by myself but I get too anxious when I am alone (I blame pregnancy hormones cause usually I am very independent). I am struggling.
