Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.
India: Are there anyone who applied for PF Advance (COVID) twice? I’ve availed it once but skeptical if I can apply again. Please shed some light!
Covid19 - the facts Is it ok to start a thread here guys ? I work with the TechHandbook and also keeping a good eye on Ruqqus Covid19 https://coronavirustechhandbook.com/
Someone tested positive for COVID-19 in my office today. They’re only shutting the office down for one afternoon for “deep cleaning” and not requiring any self isolation. Is this normal? Has anyone had a similar experience?
Who left consulting recently due to Up or Out culture? Did you change your mind about Up or Out post COVID?
Between Covid and protesting, how are you all staying sane in all this? I can’t focus on anything and I feel so much guilt on top of all the other stress.
For US locations of Big Four firms, please indicate your covid vaccine policy and effective dates for when those policies started.
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.
Who else is spending more time/resources on fitness and skincare so you come out better looking than you did pre-COVID? Are you seeing intended results?
So during COVID time, I see more and more people are shifting their attention to MBA instead getting to FAANG? Sounds like a good time to study amid this hard time.
Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage
Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
Have any of your law firms published a new or revised “remote work” policy - specifically what it might look like post Covid? We’ve had a lot of employees (in all peer groups) say they would like some type of flexibility to work at home going forward. We are trying to start a draft with some perimeters and look at all the pluses and minuses.
Anyone been tested for covid at judiciary square? How long was the wait and how long did results take?
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
I just had to get a Covid test. I’d rather get the shot every week than that swab. I can’t imagine doing weekly testing!
If any of you ladies froze your eggs when did you do so? Do you wish you did it sooner? When do you think is the ideal age to do so? Are you more likely to get covered if you get it at a later age? It’s looking less likely to find a partner due to covid / difficulties dating in this climate so I’m beginning to look into egg freezing options. Would appreciate any advice / insight 🤗
Im not quite sure what adhd is clinically, but I think my 4.5 year old son is showing signs of it. He is unable to finish a meal without getting out if his seat at least 10 times. On the other hand he is able to sit through a 30 min piano lesson He’s a bit aloof and would rather ride his bike than play games with a bunch of kids. He has just two friends that he likes to be with .. cont
I wake up at 4:30 AM to have some me time. Even on weekends! Life after a kid has changed so much!! When will things go back to normal 🧐
I feel totally blindsided by the interview I just had. I talked informally with Partner 1 before the interview and was told the position would be in one of the firm’s satellite offices. Then, during an interview with Partner 1 and Partner 2, Partner 2 mentioned that I’d have to move to the state where the firm is headquartered because he believes face-time is really important for training/mentoring. I have no plans to move and really hope this wasn’t all a huge waste of time.
I will be graduating this Fall, currently interning for TI as a Product Marketing Engineer; I will most likely accept an offer for their Technical Sales Representative 9month rotation program. The pay seems great ($113k base&bonus + 115% - 250% Payout) after finishing the rotation program. I enjoy the Sales Engineer role and think TI is a great company. Is it worth it to still apply to other companies this Fall recruiting season? (I want to be in San Francisco and possibly NYC.)
Interviewing at Mckinsey. Need help with case interview prep. Any suggestions beside self-help books?
Is it advisable to move to Netherlands from Chennai leaving 25LPA job here on top of wife’s 10LPA job for 54000 euros post tax salary?

Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
Salary check; going into S2 year, CPA, MCOL city, IT audit @ 95k. Is this low?? High?? Still haven’t gotten word on my bonus for the year.
Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!
Serious note to all those posting on LinkedIn offering to write a recommendation for anyone they know who has been laid off. How about just writing it without having to be asked first. The last thing someone who just lost their job wants to do is ask you for help, even if they need it. If you want to make their day, just go ahead and do it. Oh, and don’t write about them in the past tense, especially if they haven’t changed their employment status on LinkedIn.
Interview today with EY, any tips or advice?
I'm thinking about getting pregnant just so I can take advantage of maternity leave. Does that make me a terrible person?
Folks who've been laid off before: how do you keep the anxiety from creeping in anytime you make even a small mistake at the new job? 🙁
isn't it great when you meet all of your performance objectives and get a strong review but then the company gives you neither a bonus nor a raise
Child college saving account. Any advice?
