Being proposed on a project with someone I’ve filed an HR complaint against. Pursuing the opportunity will put my health at risk, manager was not supportive. Advice?
If you’re on a local project in the burbs of your city would you opt to stay in a hotel 2-3 nights a week... or would you commute 1.5+ hours (one way) to/from home?

I'm about to kick off my first video project (4 pre-roll videos) and I'm super nervous. Any advice?

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
Anyone have insight into Guidehouses Energy Sustainability and Infrastructure sector? WLB, project opps, culture?

First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise).

What’s the starting salary for entry level M and SM in C&M service line in tech consulting ?
What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
