A white friend is looking to buy an apartment. One apartment is in an older building in an established neighborhood. It doesn't have an in-unit washer/dryer. The other apartment is in a brand new building in a historically black neighborhood that has seen a lot of gentrification but it's still near a project with a gym, a nice roofdeck with a grill and in-unit washer dryer and costs $100k less. She's considering the first place despite it being more expensive and older. Racism is expensive.

Anyone have reviews of the Amtrak trains between Bos-NYC? Northeast regional vs Acela? Off chance anyone’s looking to sell an Amtrak voucher at a discount? 😂
A junior requested to be reassigned from my project because I let them know they were under performing and delayed a project deadline due to inaction. They've let me know that I've made them feel pretty bad and does not think I'm a good manager. However it has been a consistent issue with this individual (lack of initiative, motivation, sloppy deliverables, and does not ask questions when they are unclear on an ask). I have tried to make space for them to ask questions and take initiative (cont)
New to WD- client was supposed to request a “sandbox refresh exemption” but I just got the “down for maintenance” screen. Does this only happen for tenants being refreshed or for all regardless?

4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition? I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.
Help! I went from consulting to the client side in a legal related position. I don’t think my skill set is for this job. How do I get out?!
Client mentioned they were trying to internalize me and my team after project end. Has anyone ever had this happened to them / how did you go about it? Are there legality issues in our contract I should be careful of or after contract is up - I am ok?
Hi! New to PwC and consulting. Can someone please give me insight into how to get staffed on a project?
Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?
I’m five years into this game and I still get panicky before client calls... All calls, really. How do I get over this?

Are any of MBB firms part of US Chamber of Commerce? US Chamber of Commerce was one of the plaintiffs which won the H1B ban lawsuit, so I am trying to determine if the H1B ban applies to MBB or not.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
I booked flights using Chase portal - The flights are cheaper now do they price match? First time using the service just wanted to use all my reward points. ￼￼￼
Currently pregnant with baby 2 and a start-up which I was really keen on about 9 months ago came back around to offer me a position. I am about 4.5 months away from leave with my current firm. Am terribly nervous about accepting an getting more even half of the leave I could have gotten before. To top it all off they are offering 50% salary until they raise their target (about 30% to their goal right now). This position is in my dream field and a great fit for me, but the timing couldn’t be wors

Any recommendations for a private cook in Cabo San Lucas? Looking for good simple fresh Mexican food for 3 dinners and 2 lunches for 6 adults in our penthouse kitchen. Prefer this over going out to eat given we will have a full kitchen.
My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market. Being a CPA is definitely better than not being one but will it hurt my exit opportunities if I decide to not pursue my license? Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
