I was in a meeting with my boss and account team discussing an overage on a project. We were looking at everyone’s hours, and our UX lead (a woman) had doubled her effort. The work was necessary...
My husband and I are expecting our first baby and are really excited, and I feel like I now have a completely different standpoint on work. I’ve always gone above and beyond, giving 110%. I recently went through a redundancy process (I kept my job) and this combined with baby arriving in 4 months, I don’t have the energy or interest to work like I was. Somehow I still feel guilty. How do I shake this feeling? It’s not like I’m letting my work slip in any shape or form.
Have any of you asked for a higher salary at your firm? Did it work out? I enjoy working at my firm and have a good relationship with the partners but would like to match salary offers from others.
Is consulting worth it in the long run? Any practical example of consulting boosting your LT earnings/ career (In another field outside of consulting) ? Working for a non MBB
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Got rejected from my dream job today (right before a client call too so not great). More mad that I can’t leave this job than at the rejection. But everything happens for a reason. Onto the next 👍
GTB is losing/laying off employees left and right. Rumor is that Ford is unhappy. But I love my department. Do I jump a sinking ship before threat of another layoff.... or do I ride it out and pray?
What would it take to jump from a big 4 (e.g., EY) to MBB, (e.g., McKinsey)? Would it be worth it? FS focus, a decade of work experience largely in data and regulatory, but no advanced degrees.
Does your employer’s insurance cover Ligmology urgent care? Got diagnosed with LIGMA today and I’m a bit scared.
This years Google year review video will probably have a bill withers song as background music, have some Inspirational Kobe quote at the end, lots of zoom screens. What else am I missing?
I have gained a TON of weight in the past few months. When I wasn’t busy I ate badly and didn’t exercise because I was stressed and scared about having no work; now I’m swamped and am stressed about deadlines but kept the same habits. How do you motivate yourself to do better? It’s been months since I’ve done a proper workout and I know all I would have to do is go for a run or go to the apartment’s gym, but I just cannot make myself do it and I don’t really know whyyyyy.
If you drive to the airport, do you expense your total mileage or factor in your distance between office and home?
