I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!
Help - my mother got the covid vax and now she has a ton of joint pain and her docs arent helpful. What do I do! Second pfizer dose about 2 months ago and she has lupus - its not the pain that comes when you first get your shot this has stayed for the two months now
Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
With COVID-19 getting worse, is there any way to help our old people? I can’t imagine they can fight for food/medicine/supplies. Any organizations doing this work, or ideas on what I can do?
I didn’t get any stimulus checks, and I didn’t get any sort of raise for recent inflation. I am significantly more poor than I was before covid because of this nonsense. Thanks, government.
Is Bain going to have the same fate post Covid as what happened to Booz & company Post 2008 crisis ?
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
Unprofessional post- I’m seeing my new coworkers in person for the first time this weekend because I was a remote hire. But I have gained so much weight since covid that I feel like people are going to be disappointed when they see me in person. Because my professional headshot is from 2 years ago and I don’t look like that anymore. What do I do? I really want to cancel.

How do coronavirus symptoms start? My mom is having trouble breathing today and we're don't want to assume that's what is it? Not sure if we should go to the emergency room or wait it out.
I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly
Can you get back Virgin Atlantic miles spent on booking a reward delta international flight if you cancel the flight due to coronavirus?
I’ve been out of work for a significant amount of time due to Covid decimating my industry. Lots of interviews and a few final rounds. Today I finally got an offer. Pay is the best yet and team seems great. I just can’t help but feel a little disappointed bc it’s not the industry I was in/am passionate about/reason I went to law school. Is one bird in hand really better than two in the bush? Anyone have a similar situation? I’m worried about regret & giving up on my dreams.
Any ortho or ID docs know if the closed air circuit helmets used in joint replacement are useful against covid? I was thinking about using one over an N95 for intubations.
I’m a tax senior 1 (will be a senior 2 in October) and just got an offer with a 26% raise at a large public company on their provision team. There’s also an aspect of FP&A and helping with transactions so not strictly tax. All seems super interesting and the team seems great. I really like my EY team and my counselor has talked to me about an early manager promo next year but have never intended to be a PA lifer. Any reason I shouldn’t take it?
Unsure where to go post MBA graduation with offers to PwC (DDV), KPMG (Strategy), and ACN (Finance & Risk). Where would you go and why?
Captain your career they said, you pick your specialty they said, the culture is great they said. 🤦🏽♂️
I’m social media drained. I can’t keep up with all you 25 year olds who have $500k in savings, perfect bodies and skin, no student debt, manager-level jobs in tech and MBB, tons of friends and partners/spouses who love them. I’m out for a while ✌️
Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
Any book recommendations on how to work smarter not harder, particularly as it pertains to our day-to-day as management consultants?

Has anyone here worked with a team of remote engineers in Eastern Europe? Anything I should be aware of in terms of cultural differences or behavioral norms? I’m US-based
Hey everyone - from an EEO audit perspective, I’m not sure how to classify our Solutions Consulting (pre sales), Customer Success, and Partnerships teams. All are commissioned employees so my gut says Sales Workers but they aren’t direct sales so that part thinks Professional. What are your thoughts?

My partner hasn’t been feeling well over the last couple days. Nothing severe, just slight malaise and fatigue. She told me she had contact with someone who was Covid positive but she’s in healthcare so that isn’t anything new. She was prepared. Today she was sent home from work and told to quarantine but has insisted on getting hugs and even coughed on me during one. We’ve been together for a LONG time. This is a pattern for when she gets sick but with possible Covid I expected more precaution
I'm struggling to establish boundaries on my project. I get new work assigned at 6pm most days and I'm told they need done by the next day. I start at 7am everyday. Anyone have advice on what I can say to leadership? I seriously can't be working 7am to 11pm every day, my personal life/family is really taking a huge hit. I don't mind the occasional long day, but consistent 14-15 hour days aren't gonna fly anymore.
