Deloitte CEO just announced vaccine mandates
People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
Do you ever tip 20% or more for dine in?
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
My manager has a must respond to my emails within 2 hours rule. Sometimes she sends them at 8pm. 3 of my team associates decided to reported her to HR for it. These new hires have no chill anymore in this economy.
26, no kids or debt, making 175k/Yr - miserably bored at work and want to work for a startup. In the size startups I want for the role I want I’d have to take 50% pay cut Thoughts?
What do you REALLY do when wfh? Has anyone else mastered how to nap while keeping your screen alive
If you were allowed to remote work from anywhere right now where would you move in the US?
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
WFH Home office setup stipend - How are your companies doing it? I know BCG gvae $250 and Bain monitor/keyboard + $150 for ergonomics, curious about other consulting firms
Is it ok to get personal in salary negotiations? For example, let the recruiter know that I’m a single parent supporting three young kids and two retired parents and I really need more money.
Perks of WFH I guess
What are your thoughts on sending out company/region-wide farewell slack messages when quitting? What’s a good way to announce but not be annoying in this remote world? I was gonna do an Irish goodbye but felt that was a little disrespectful.
My head is spinning 😵💫 is this real?

Why Consulting Firms Are Wasting Millions Recruiting on “Top Tier” Campuses https://hbr.org/2015/10/firms-are-wasting-millions-recruiting-on-only-a-few-campuses
Client said, "...and Mike come on top of me on this" on a call. I think he meant "build on what I'm saying". Not quite the same. Pretty hard not to laugh when other clients snort and look at me.

Just got promoted to Consultant after 2+ years, 9% base salary adjustment + 1.5% bonus. Does that sound right?
