How did you say no or scale back for extra firm building stuff? Between covid and pregnancy I just don’t have the energy right now but don’t wanna burn bridges
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.
Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently
Is COVID-19 causing delays in offers (after onsite/superday)? What is the typical turnaround time after superday at FAANG and PE?
Hey fishes, based on your own experience during Covid, any idea on how much time it takes under standard processing for H1B transfers? Mine was filed mid September.
Does anyone have insight into WeWork or have experience working there? Talking with one of their teams right now. Certainly hesitant due to all the issues over past year plus the fact that COVID is hitting real estate but seems like it could be an opportunity to get in before they go public. Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated!
WFH/Remote Covid Poll
PSA: Many a traveler to Mexico contract giardiasis, which is also known as Montezuma's Revenge. Signs and symptoms of giardia infection may last two to six weeks, but in some people they last longer or recur. WTF, first COVID now this 😩 who knew there was a long haul version of this 😭
I've always been a runner but road running can be tough on joints. Now that I'm older and also thanks to COVID, I got more into trail running and it's been really fun: www.bodymindover40.com/blog/trail-running Does anybody here have similar experiences?

Trump supporters - if Trump keeps not listening to experts and ignoring the science around coronavirus, at what point does it become his virus?
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Hi All, what are the roles/responsibilities of level 8 at Accenture? YoE: 8 yrs Is the job security bad as I've heard or was it just for the covid period? If the performance is alright, one wouldn't face issues, is it?
Conflicted on choosing recommenders. Am in FDD so it’s not like I have a constant direct supervisor…(work with a different team on a deal by deal basis) due to covid drop in the market I was pivoted to another service line for 6 months (eg working capital, restructuring, commercial diligence, etc) and am thinking of getting a supervisor from this since it was longer term than the typical deal (2-3 weeks). Does anyone have advice on this?
Should I get tested? Friends wife got covid from partying with friends. I had lunch with friend [husband] the next day. Then he tested positive. It’s been 2 days. I’m vaccinated. Scared shitless right now.
The amount of love I feel for my cute new pet, including the motivation he gives me to get out of bed in the morning, makes me wonder how much more having a child could change one's life for the better.. 🐣

Anyone at SFO right now?
Have a trip planned to Portugal in late September. How concerned should I be that travel may be restricted for Americans again due to the Delta variant? Are people still planning international trips for the fall? Or waiting to see how this pans out? We are fully vaccinated. This is a trip we rebooked after having to cancel in April 2020. Will be so sad if we have to cancel again 😢

If you're billing the same rate, you should get the same salary bands regardless of geography.
