Tell me working from bed has been normalized by now. I thought that was the line I would never cross with WFH, but I’ve crossed it. Obviously still take meetings from my desk. This shouldn’t be anything to feel guilty about right? EDIT for context - I still live in a small apartment so there are limited options for where to work besides my desk - and sitting in one place all day is VERY draining - feel like this is probably an issue mostly for younger consultants

Any interns here? How's your remote internship going so far? Must be a weird experience...
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.
Bf & I live in different cities, so due to remote work he comes over for longer periods of time. He was supposed to stay all week + the long weekend but today I was just so drained and on edge I told him he needs to go back today. I feel really bad and pretty sure he’s pissed but not sure how to preserve my own sanity while still being a good partner. Any ideas or advice on how to resolve and manage going forward?
I’ve been focusing on drinking more water and trying to be a bit more environmentally conscious. I also don’t own a urinal at home, so I use my sink. Just wanted to share this wfh hack here.
Encouraging WFH is not the same as making it mandatory. People who “take the option” of WFH will be frowned upon. Meanwhile “encouraging WFH” alleviates the liability of the agency. Don’t fall for it.
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. 🙃

Hey geniuses, financial modelling question: how do you account for the risk of fines in an excel business case model? For example if your project would eliminate a 10% risk each year of being fined $1m. Do I model it as a $1m P&L benefit a year? $100k? Something else? Thanks!
United: you may be asked to vacate or be taken off the plane by force. Me: ok... United: but for $49.99 you can upgrade to trial by combat. LOLLLL, best one I've seen yet, how about you?
Hey all - a recent grad (class of 21) really interested in an associate position at S& Deal Strategy. Found out there was an open position super late, so went ahead and reached out to alum. Have a chat for next monday, but I found out that the PwC national deadline was on Tuesday. Asked alum if it was a hard deadline and he said to apply whenever. Ended up applying on Tuesday in fear that the apps would close, but might have shot myself in the foot. Any advice on how to proceed? Strategy&
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
How do you stay in shape on your project?
I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar

Anyone at PWC or Accenture with client connections down to chat about possibly leaving either of those companies and getting involved in a cybersecurity startup? Sign up 3-4 clients prior to raising funding. Asking for a friend.
Which type of client do you hate the most: 1) the "I'll know it when I see it" 2) the "make the logo bigger... Again" or 3) the client that constantly changes their mind ?

I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
