Still confused on moving back or not (currently subletting place to someone). What have your experiences been like? Rent worth it even though work still remote?
Project management software - ours sucks. Looking into replacements. Anybody have ones they love? Reasons why? Need it primarily for managing internal workflow (non client-facing). Please help!
A junior creative takes a good idea that has just been presented to the client and is awaiting final approval and publishes it on all social networks as a personal project. You reaction?
The long and the short of it. I was laid off a couple of months ago, the clients on the account I ran loved me. Can I hit the client up about freelance? The non-solicitation part in my severance package mentions something about a year (which hasn’t passed yet), but still I’m no lawyer and it’s mostly mumbo jumbo to me.
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked? It would be nice to have an extra income source, and since I work from home, I don’t see the time being an issue.
Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.
D-Day? Finest hour? I’m sure we’re all hearing these ridiculous references on the news to the fight on Covid and the vaccines. Sounds sacrilegious to me. This isn’t the greatest generation by a long shot. This is the generation of whom many flouted medical guidelines, put others at risk for selfish reasons. Whined about work from home. Recklessly traveled in droves over Thanksgiving. Sorry, but just an observation about the hubris that brought out the worst in too many people.
Hi! Any career coaches who offer a full support throughout job search? -Experience: 8 years of project/program management and/or communication -Companies of interest: Google, Microsoft, Facebook -Location: Washington DC or VA
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Anyone here work with diagnostic labs such as labcorp etc? What’s a good book/resource to get up to speed with the ins and outs of diagnostic lab business? Landed a long term project

Just venting here: I have an autoimmune disease, I am not allowed to WFH, and I work in an office where only about 50% wear masks. 🙃
Hi fishes! Just joined an FP&A team with no prior FP&A experience and suffering with a heavy impostor syndrome. Can you please help me with what makes a high performing FP&A analyst? My background is in project management for finance, model governance and RRP; Business Admin Grad - Major in Finance. Thanks!
The daily internal struggle of trying to decide if the project is legitimately poorly designed and managed, or if I'm just a dummy for not "getting it." 🤔
Do folks in business/strategy consulting at large firms use firm-approved project management systems, like asana or monday? When I worked at a small boutique firm, folks were obsessed with pristine project management systems and plans and charts and matrices. Now that I'm at a very large firm, it seems like teams maybe have some ad hoc spreadsheets, but everything moves so fast and client requests are constantly changing, it's mostly fly by the seat of your pants.
Someone let out a silent killer in a meeting with an executive from the client; left everyone guessing and staring at each other throughout. I need a lot of oxygen after all this methane -_-
On project in Germany in client’s basement conference room; Turns out it was an old WW2 bomb shelter. Old company manufactured tanks. History is cool. Lack of AC is not
Anyone here work at fundrise? Been working at a REIT and looking to pivot. Lots of job openings at fundrise have caught my attention but not sure which group I’d be the best fit.
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
Got an intracompany transfer offer for US and Australia - where should I head? Longterm goal: live in the US and work in tech (esp. Google). US offer: L1B visa, not transferable to other companies. Greencard uncertain. TC n/a but probably 🥜 Australia: work visa transferable, Sydney or Melbourne. Work in AU, switch to Google -> relocate to US. TC probably 🥜 too
Woke up at 3am with work anxiety; got out of bed around 5.30 to sketch slides. NEVER happened before in nine years of consulting. MD promotion stress may be what finally does me in 😩
I just find it odd that my biglaw firm isn’t even entertaining a flexible work schedule. They made more money last year with people remote. It’s like they’re not motivated by profit.
Dear Women in the Law, Does anyone else find it absolutely *infuriating* when a colleague tells you that your preference to work from home or from the office "will probably change when you have...

Comp for manager at Bain & Company ?
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Why is it FAANG and not FAAMG? M for Microsoft? Is Netflix really move powerful/clout than Microsoft

The truth about how covid started
Just used points to book first class tickets to Hawaii for my boo and I next month! Feels so good to finally fly somewhere I want to go without paying for it!
Is it a bad idea to join a first time VC fund as a Sr Associate as a PL at BCG? I expect itll be a massive decrease in comp (TC ~300k to ~150-180?). But its a topic thats interesting to me and the hours will be better
Is 112K for a startup good for 2 YOE in MBB in nyc? I was personally targeting 135K at least but this seems interesting
