Should my husband and I move to ATL or BOS? Currently in Deloitte federal. I travel to ATL right now and Deloitte will pay both of us to move there, but our hearts are in Boston.
Meet our new COVID pup, Hopi! She's 6 and a rescue with some pretty bad arthritis but she's happy as a clam with us 😊
I’ll lose my United status end of this year. Maybe time to rethink alliances. What’s the best from NYC? Availability, miles, award travel, upgrades, alliance to Europe, etc.

WFH Day 20: I have turned my laptop on while in bed – for the first time. Is this a win, or am I starting to lose myself? 🙃
One thing that really sucks about COVID is the fact that so many friends have moved away from the city. 🙁
Hello everyone, I have been working for a local CPA firm for the last year and a half and my goal is to join one of the Big Four with a focus on assurance (currently I am doing a bit of everything and want to specialize). Would anyone be willing to talk to me about best practices to start networking and getting my foot in the door in the midst of COVID-19 and remote working? I really appreciate any advice or insight you might be able to share with me and thank you!
I’m unassigned for a whole month but roll onto a new job after and have a busy season in my schedule for 2021. Should I be worried about this month of downtime?? In times of COVID layoffs?

I’ve been looking at two schools and found out both had to quarantine due to teachers testing positive but everything resumed. Trying to figure out if if this is the norm and the level of concern
My current Marriott status: Platinum, titanium, and Ambassador all at the same time. Let’s see which one wins out once they finish the account merge 😅
Thinking of either Belize or Costa Rica late fall this year. Any recommendations? In particular would like to hear about Marriott hotels and off-property excisions in both countries. Thanks!
Anyone have tools they’ve given their parents to help them learn / be more comfortable with technology as they WFH? My dad has been struggling having to rely more on computers / technology since he has started WFH. He’ll call me to help, but oftentimes I can’t sit through and help him figure it out since I am also working. Usually I’d just do it for him since it’s faster but in the long run him not knowing how to do things is stressing us both out. Any recs on training tools, etc he could use?
Went to Disney World. Never felt safer. Took a Covid test - negative. Safely reopening is totally possible!
Is it weird that I LOVE the travel I get to do in consulting? Michelin star restaurants, 5 star hotels, upgrades on demand. I honestly get bummed on local projects. Why do you guys hate this so much?
The saddest feeling is when you drunkenly buy a nice bottle of wine on Wednesday night and have to leave it in the hotel room unopened Thursday morning :(
What do you REALLY do when wfh? Has anyone else mastered how to nap while keeping your screen alive
Thoughts on living in Hoboken? I currently have apt in East Village but haven’t moved due to covid and lease expires soon. I’m starting to like the idea of Hoboken, especially since my office will be in Hudson Yards. Post-covid, I also think I’m less tied to living inside Manhattan too. I want space and feel like I could maybe even keep my car with me in Hoboken. Seems generally cheaper too, but I’m less concerned about price than quality of life. Would definitely prefer more bang for $. Thanks!
Attention HR professionals at medical device/pharma companies: will those workers who regularly visit hospitals to service equipment, give clinical instructions on product, and sell, be eligible for vaccines any time soon? I’m getting conflicting info on where these workers fall in the vaccine hierarchy, and of course every state’s rollout is different.

For those of you in senior leadership who have taken pay cuts, has it made your salary lower than any of the people reporting to you and if so, how do you feel?
Background: My midyear review was bad, and it was my first review. I was switched to a new team on a new project, where I was looking forward to starting on a clean slate. However, it just came to my attention that my mentor went behind my back and talked to my current new manager about me. Question: Is this normal behavior? He says he didn’t say anything about my prior review, but I’m sure he’s either lying or it was hinted at, which I don’t like, as it could bias my new review.
Is the interview process to get into IBD harder or easier than top consulting firms like BCG/McKinsey/Bain? Where do the truly smart people work nowadays?
