Any avid cyclers on here ? Been looking for a bike for awhile but it’s been extremely tough due to Covid. Low supply. Any recs ? Thinking gravel/CX - need 56cm.
What would you consider to be the end of the pandemic ? Virus stop being spread ? ICUs not being overfilled with covid patients ? Something different ? I ask since I don't see a clear objective forward by governments.
What's the pulse these days on "job hopping"? Was part of a COVID RIF less than a year into Job 1. Quickly found job 2 because, uh, need income. But ready to leave now.
All I can think when I see the arguments about covid death counts: This country needs a crash course on proximate causation.
I have a case of FOMO I’m trying to navigate lol. One of my friends from college just told me she’s getting married in a few weeks, but I haven’t gotten the invitation. We are pretty close and we regularly call each other. I also learned that people whom she said she is not close are actually invited to the wedding. On one hand I’m trying to calm myself that she might be limiting attendees due to covid, but it’s not a great feeling. How else should I think about this?

What are the odds that January return to office plans will be pushed again due to a winter COVID surge
My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
Should I put off having a baby until 2022? My S/O and I have always talked about having a big family. I want to start on my mid 20s and hopefully finish having kids by my mid 30s (I want 3-4 kids). Should I wait until after COVID to start having kids? Life is unpredictable so who’s to say that after one pandemic there won’t be another. I’m hesitant to wait but scared now to start trying for a baby.
I see a lot of people post about M&A tax and how busy it’s been lately. Is this sustainable or will it fall off? How was it before COVID?
96% of physicians are vaccinated yet <50% of nurses are. What do you think is causing this discrepancy in vaccination rates? https://www.forbes.com/sites/judystone/2021/06/28/covid19-vaccination-rates-are-poor-among-healthcare-workershow-can-we-do-better/
Hey fish fam, thinking of a side hustle for post covid and was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good business plan and financial plan template? Specifically for a restaurant. Appreciate any links you can share!
Do you think restaurants/eateries will close in the fall/winter if there’s a resurgence of high COVID cases again? Don’t care to dine in, but would order take out or delivery. I’m moving to an area with great restaurants nearby and I’d like to continue supporting and getting food from those places at least once a week while I can afford to.
Just joined this bowl and I find it hilarious that there isn’t a single post. 😂 sounds accurate for my Covid dating life thus far.
🐠 doing entry-level recruiting: what elements of the Consulting value proposition resonates with prospects in a post-COVID era, and how do you convince them that Consulting is a better career path than, say, Tech?
Anyone here caught both the original covid as well as the UK strain? How different did you feel between the two?
Apparently more than a few of my firm's associates moved to other states during COVID and are now quitting because we are coming back to the office. The wierd thing is that my office is quickly replacing those associates with other associates that moved here (a large secondary market) during COVID and refuse to go back to their (mostly NYC-based) firms. Is this churn happening at other firms too?
As a fully-vaccinated person, what should I think about plans to meet with an unvaccinated person who’s recently recovered from “a really bad flu”(+lost sense of smell)/“definitely-not-COVID”?
My husband and I have a huge combined family. They are also...well...loud. By loud I mean, laughing, debating, talking, all in good cheer. But sometimes arguments can erupt, and there's really no shortage of entertainment and sometimes drama. We're having a smaller gathering this year and wondering what's the best way to navigate all things COVID and health - we love to be close, hug, etc but I know everyone has different comfort levels and I want to be gracious and appease. What's your expert opinion? #QA
What’s the most you’ve made in a year, all-in, including base + commissions + annual vested stock? And what company?
I have an opportunity to exit to Citibank as an AVP for $120k/$125k base with 2.5 YOE. Thoughts? I would like to work at a bank eventually and was aiming for JP Morgan, but my offer at JP was too low.

Overheard at DTW "Chicago passengers please return to the gate if you've taken wrong suitcase". Happy Thanksgiving from the family.
Any McK folks know about the "experienced associate" job post for Midwest offices that's posted? Do you need an MBA or is 5 years leadership/work experience and 2 years of strategy consulting enough?
Interested in applying for slalom but just read that you only get paid 50% if you are on the bench? Can anyone confirm?
90 percent sure my client hired an independent contingent worker who settled a recent SEC complaint for insider trading. This person is working alongside my team. What's my role as a trusted advisor?
Texting on the plane ride home with a drink in hand ...with friends as they also travel home on separate flights... one of the simple pleasures of consulting life 🍸😊
Any tik tok employees willing to DM about the culture. Looking to get a candid look at the culture and work life balance before going further in the interview process.
Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
Anyone familiar with salaries or know anything about BDO or GT's restructuring services? Interviewing for senior associate roles in NYC. Thanks!
