Does anybody do a “work uniform” in the office? I’m new in an in-house role at a company that has dress for your day (primarily jeans), and I’m thinking about doing that when we go back (1-2 days a week). I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?
Interesting look at who this will impact the most. https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-data-vaccines.page
Genuinely asking… Why is the media clamoring about COVID infection rates? I thought we only cared about infections because infections x A = hospitalization rate; and hospitalization rate x B = death rate However, in this wave both A and B have declined substantially given the vaccination rate. But the media doesn’t seem to be talking about it. The UK has the Delta wave a few weeks before us and is not seeing infection rates decline. Am I missing something? Genuinely asking.
How are firms treating their employees who contract COVID? Do employees just take sick time until they are better? Unpaid leave? What are you all hearing?
Anyone resigned lease that had covid free months/ incentives recently? Were you able to keep some incentive or did price went back to normal?
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 may be paranoid - I have been having a runny, congested nose, with occasional sneezing. It got worse this evening. No other symptoms. I just saw midwife today and didn’t think much of it until this evening when it felt worse. They took my temperature there-no fever. Anyone have pregnancy rhinitis? Scared it’s Covid but I could also likely be overreacting.
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
Hey folks at Accenture Strat, were you traveling every week pre-COVID? Also, what’s the expectation after the pandemic?
Lot of negatives from Covid. Am curious to poll this crowd on what we think the long term positives will be, both for consultants and society at large. Let’s generate some positive vibes.
Does the KPMG Cybersecurity practice really travel 80%-100% of the time or is this up to that percentage amount? Do you think after COVID it will go back to this or be reconsidered to a lower percentage?
Can company ask for a COVID positive test results? HR is asking for "tracing" purposes. I don't really care to provide as I don't think they mean anything negative, but thought maybe I should be aware of what is allowed or not at least.
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Starting to think I am underpaid based on talking to peers at other companies and hearing about client raises / bonuses that got paid out in the covid year. 11 YOE. SM 2 in Tech Strategy Consulting. 185k. Thoughts?
Been in a PR Coordinator position for two years now and feeling discouraged about no promotion or raise. I was ready for a promotion, but COVID happened and now it’s on hold. I’m looking elsewhere but obviously the job market’s not booming. Any encouraging words of advice?
Is it worth it to apply in the Covid round? I feel like there is less scholarship money, won’t be same experience in the fall or even the spring, and could be impacts to internship recruiting in the fall. Anyone agree?
What’s the best spot in Manhattan for a young single professional trying to live it up and party every day? I’m trying to make some memories once covid calms down

If a firm gives different bonus amounts for district court (ex: 50k) and circuit court (ex: 75k) clerkships is it common to receive both combined (ex: 125k) when you join? Or is it normal to receive some lesser amount?

Can anyone recommend a Time Management course for employees? Bonus if it is tailored for Outside Sales people. Online/Virtual would be preferred as the reps are scattered throughout the country. Thank you!
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
How do you guys take care of your parents back home . I am a single child living in USA . I don’t want to go back and it is getting tougher day by day .
What am I worth in terms of TC? SDE, 6 YOE, background at a startup and 2 mid-level companies, MS degree. Assuming I'm desirable enough for interviews at a handful of good places. Not based on a previous salary, just objectively.
Happy Father’s Day out there. You Padres are killing it with your selfless dedication with your sacrifices to your families. Challenge yourselves to spend time more time with your kids. That’s the biggest regret I hear....to all the fathers that screwed it up get your $h!t together and be the father you always wanted. Cheers!!!
If you’re a parent of young children, what do you do to unwind? Need a hobby besides work and my toddler...
Your thoughts on Inclusion champion?
It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career. Things like self-promotion to the right people, being highly confident in my abilities (rather than focusing on risks and mitigations), and just naturally walking into every room like I belong. I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?

Hi all.. looking for some advice on how to start a conversation with my manager about seeking a full time offer after my internship ends in a couple of weeks. We’ve never really had any 1-1 on progress updates or check ins. Would this be a red flag?
Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
