Let's reflect. What have you found to be the best WFH tips? What have you learned about yourself / others during the pandemic? What have you learned about leadership/ working with others? Overall, what works and what didn't?
Secretly find COVID19 to be a good lesson for someone just starting their career- taught me to save up for a rainy day, cherish everything in life and stop taking “normal” things for granted 🙏
How to make remote desktop dual screen?
Any other women experience spotting after receiving the vaccine? I am meeting more and more women saying they have.
Wrapping up mat leave soon & it’s back to work (from home) in a few weeks, & I’m going bonkers about how to manage two little ones in a small apartment while my husband is also WFH. How are people doing this? Any tips/childcare recos?
My Covid antibody test was negative but I swear I had Covid before.....I don’t understand this virus
Any firms that have made the "work from home" decision yet? We've been getting preparation notices for weeks but not officially given the signal.
Prior to covid I was a driven woman who was a top performer on my team. In the past 18 months I have really lost all motivation and have embraced being an average performer. I accept this because at 30, single and stagnant professionally I have come to the realization that I need to prioritize the things that I want in life and although I do want to continue to be financially successful I want a family- more. I am not sure if I should explore a flexible work arrangement
Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
I know it's early to even mention this, but has anyone starting preparing lessons for the fall? I want to create a remote learning webquest (how to use remote learning tools) so that students are prepared for anything.
Can someone give me perspectives on this? PA used to be attractive despite low pay high hours due to its fast path (promotions) & fringe benefit like work from home, parental leave, ect. (To be cont)
Bookies are taking bets on whether Joe Exotic will get Corona or not. The world has gone nuts and the end is near. He is also asking Trump for a pardon. https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/joe-exotic-transferred-to-prison-medical-center-from-coronavirus-i
I never thought I’d be posting something like this here, but here we are so I must be desperate. I feel more lonely in my relationship than I did before it. My SO is great, but whenever he goes out I feel so crushingly alone. Can’t tell whether it’s COVID or a serious issue.
COVID vaccine reactions? I got shot 1 of Pfizer on Friday. For me I had a sore arm for two days and was extremely tired. I’d love to hear others who got JnJ or Moderna.
Anyone else’s kids having a tough time napping lately? Not sure if it’s related to my wife and I WFH and him not being in daycare...? He’s also 11 months and trying hard to learn to walk. Development?
Prior to COVID I was planning on transferring from LA to NYC this summer. That got put on hold but it looks like NYC is getting better now (especially compared to LA). Do you think it would be worth it to make the move now?
We need to improve our ability to take care of people in their homes. COVID is a perfect use case, as better to have these folks avoid the hospital
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
Any WFH parents, also watch their kids during the day? If so, my question is HOW do you make that work? I have a hard time imagining a scenario where I could handle both at the same time...
Anyone else's dog now an ERP expert due to WFH?
@Slalom 🐟 what's the entry level salary in S&O? What about one level up? (Associate? Senior? Idk what you call it)
Exiting to Tech in a sales / consulting services role. Clearing $400K inclusive of RSUs. Really felt like I was not given the opportunities on high visibility accounts at my firm and somehow my client / sales / firm impacts were overlooked. Always felt like I was swimming upstream and my comp was basically flat over the last 3 years. So I bid adieu to consulting - for now.
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
Recently transferred internally (tech industry) to a new role in the analytics team to focus >90% on analysis due to previous role being 50% ops. Now in my new role, the person who was responsible for ops just left and now I have both roles under my scope. How soon can I start looking for exit ops? Assuming I’ve been at the company for 4 years and new team just 2 months. Transfer process took previous team going to bat for me, leadership approval, etc. Looking to avoid burning bridges.
How do you break into the DevSecOps roles from consulting? I feel like they ask so much from a devsecops role
Canceling CSR my NY friends?
Associate. 80k. Looking to make a move potentially to a boutique firm that'll pay at least 5-10k less if I were to guess. But the culture and work seem amazing. Thoughts?
What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting in pharma (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move as strategy consulting was something I was looking to explore for a long time but not entirely confident if I made the right choice. 4YOE here
For those that joined consulting post-MBA, do you wish you had started earlier or do you feel it was the right time? 2 years in and wondering if I should commit to another 3 years for B-school...

Just had breakfast at TFG DFW and can't help but appreciate the meals at EY learning week from last week in Chicago.
Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?
Interviewing for jobs honestly sometimes feel like the hunger games where only one person survives the fight
Holding offer from acn CDO, decent salary but they mentioned they are lax on firing people if they aren't ready for promo. That's another way to say they don't promote as easily? Not sure what to do
Anyone else having problems maintaining sanity while having their kids fighting with each other in the background of Zoom calls for work? 😑
Interested in leaving the firm at a critical time in my current project for personal reasons; is this going too far in terms of burning bridges? I'm the lead on the project.
