Who left consulting recently due to Up or Out culture? Did you change your mind about Up or Out post COVID?
No masks and social distancing? I will continue to take precautions even though am vaccinated.
My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
Did many firms give raises during covid or have firm addressed upcoming raises/bonuses that may have been forgone? Trying to get a general consensus
What do you do if you’re a junior associate working from home but get sick (not covid, common cold). Power thru and do as much as you can? No crazy upcoming deadlines but a few deliverables here and there
For those of you who have moved back home(due to COVID or holidays), how has your dating life been impacted?

My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
Anyone else feel that COVID has made your first trimester a million times easier? No planes/Uber’s/cars to get nauseous in, no weird team room smells, sneaking power naps easily, wearing leggings & no morning commute!
Don’t you think this covid19 is exposing some truths about corporate world? Before the industrial revolution most of the people pretty much worked and lived in the same place. The industrial revolution brought in mass manufacture, reporting and punching time in/out at a central office. Now that seems so dated and command and control in this new era of remote work and digital online presence, services and tools. Should we go back to the old ways unless needed?
Any producers who switched from agency to brand side? How has it been? And what company or city are you working from (assume no COVID/remote work)?
Help! I am 6’1” tall with long legs and long feet .... and it seems like my “go to online store” for tall pants/slacks (32”-34” inseam) as well as shoes (size 14M) has shuttered (Long Tall Sally). I would love any suggestions for either tall clothes and/or shoes. Even a place to buy custom shoes at this point - I am desperate! My slightly too small size 13 Tory Burch sandals are just not going to cut it during the colder months, even given COVID 🤪 Thanks in advance!
Ladies and gents- when/if you had option for timed intercourse (~15% chance of pregnancy) vs IUI (~30% chance), which one did you/would you do in the time of COVID? Option 2 requires partner and me returning to hospital tomorrow (I was here today). Option 1 obviously does not. Thanks for your advice in advance! This is following second round of clomid, FYI.

Why can't these people just work hard like the rest of us?!? Hands up! Don't loot! https://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-connected-lobbyists-secure-coronavirus-financial-aid/
Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
Hill Holliday in Boston laid off a bunch of people and so far, by my count, it's 13 women 3 men. 4 working moms. 1 woman 6 months pregnant. And most of the creative layoffs were women??

So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.
First year with only one engagement under my belt and bench time to spare. Should I be worried? My practice just doesn't have work right now.
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

I love the thought of having a baby but there is this nagging anxiety about life changing drastically & the thought of how good of a mom I will be.
