I’m getting sick of living in a city. What’s a good midsize town, liberal, good schools. Anywhere in the us? Good weather would be nice

Bend, Oregon is amazing. Awesome year round activities if you enjoy being outdoors. Great beer and wine. Food could be better but that’s okay. Love Portland too.




Durham is an armpit. Raleigh for the win.



I’ve been binge watching HGTV since lockdown and been thinking the same. Following 👀

Wife wants a top 10 city but I think I’d be fine with a nice town. Something like Madison but with better weather. Maybe no more than an hour from an airport. Maybe even an exurb of a big city. I’m just worried about the people. Would I fit in etc?

You ain’t getting liberal outside of the east snd west coast cities friend.

Not sure that’s true. What about Austin. Chicago exurbs? College towns all throughout

So much for “liberal”. Cities being trashed is a direct result of liberal policies

Ok Boomer

Try researching Frisco, Allen, suburbs of Dallas. We moved after living in NJ for 15 years and like it.

NYC is requiring proof of vaccination for all indoor activities. That’s absolutely nuts (and I’m vaccinated)!


IQVIA is the worst organization I have ever even heard of !!!. They force leaves, when work is low. they ask their employees to stand by, and later ask them to apply for leave during that day !!! Work is hectic and they do not have any back up what so ever, so they keep pushing us no matter what !!! Like even if you are on a sick leave,or your parents die, even if you are going to drop dead your manager is going to ask you to work as they don't, and have no intention of any back up !!!

Do any of your district NOT have a mask mandate?


So I think I’m done in public accounting tax. It’s been about four years, got my CPA, been on a few different teams, and I’m just sick of if. This lifestyle feels incredibly unhealthy and detrimental to my health. I want to go to an industry job but have NO idea what I’m looking for. I like real estate a lot, own two properties myself. Do I look for like a real estate fund to work for? My experience is in asset and Wealth MGMT and some individual work as well. How do I find another job?!


I really would rather get hit by a bus and live on disability than go to work in this office until I can realistically walk out. I didn't realize how bad it was until right now.


In desperate need of advice here... I resigned from my job three months ago and made the conscious decision to take some time off before finding a new gig due to crippling anxiety and depression. Got the help I needed and I'm doing much better. I have a few interviews lined up over the course of the next few weeks and I'm torn on whether or not to disclose the fact that I've been professionally diagnosed with anxiety and depression. What's the best course of action?


My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?


Any recommendations on where I can get medical examination done for Green card in NJ/NY. The cost seems to be so high in Manhattan and unfortunately I don’t have vaccination records that was done in India.


Thoughts on ignoring questions that are texted to you while you’re out sick?

I'm so sick of the word "savage".


I called out sick, even though I'm fine. Going to do it again tomorrow. I'm not the only one that's done this... Right?


What do you listen to while you work? Music? Podcasts? I’m getting sick of silence but I have a hard time focusing with noise sometimes.


Psychologically disabled 🐠 (ie PTSD/Bipolar/Depression/Schizoid spec/Autism spec/Anxiety, etc) have you had any luck requesting formal accomodation w/ HR for your disability @ your agency? What kind?

Are sick days a thing anymore, or is it just working from home to not fall behind when you can't physically go to work? Asking from my bed.


To all the peeps in Philly, let us all know how crazy it got. Oh yeah, enjoy your "sick day" tomorrow. ;)


I am sick of the main bowl “I’m going to buy a gun” posts, memes, and comments. Would we approach a crisis with guns?


Did a medical check-up since I’m home and family doctor says business has actually been slow. High blood pressure for the first time in my life - I’m glad I know. Encourage others to get checked out just to see how their body is absorbing additional stress.

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.


This is looking great!

Changed my company but it didn't update!

Parents in Consulting. How do you manage consulting hours (50+ hours) with children? What does your schedule look like?


Tax season, and I just noticed I have a household income of $700K. Guess how much we've saved? $0!!! $300K goes to tax - thanks to CA $60K goes to housing mortage, HOA, and tax $15K goes to travel & vacation $10K goes to BTS... Where did the rest of money go? NO IDEA... Looks like just dining and grocery stuff. I don't have even have kids, didn't buy any luxury brands last year.


What household income would you need to be comfortable buying an 800k house? Assuming no other debt. Know there are many other factors besides HHI, just taking the temperature here


At least it’s not Deloitte 🤣 (Edit: this is 150k for a single individual, not HHI)

Analyst keeps taking time off for dr appointments, sick, etc. Today they were screen sharing and had a bunch of tabs open with titles that were obviously emails regarding interview scheduling, follow ups, and job search websites. Hope all that sickness doesn’t impede their ability to land a new job!


how do you become a thought leader in your field? do you have to be an expert and exist at the cutting edge of technology? are these linkedin influencers nothing more than the loudest in the room?


I just went from thinking I had a 10 million dollar idea to realizing it was illegal in about 5 minutes


Considered falling down the stairs today to injure myself so I could have time off work. Think this means it’s time to take a step back and think about my physical and mental well being.


Can't speak to Deloitte culture but having been a partner at two firms I can say this would be an endless source of mockery amongst the partners.

A friend of mine gave me a referral (tech company). I went through the very hard recruiting process (without his help) and ended up receiving a very good offer (+70k TC and stocks/much larger team to lead). Friend got a referral bonus of 8k but barely mentioned it and I heard it from the HM. How would you feel? I mean he did help me getting a dream job so I shouldn’t bother, right? Also im curious: would you give the candidate (in this case myself) a piece of the 8k?


Everyone thinks they’re a “consultant” these days... (continued)
