Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
I've seen a lot of posts around APA and utilisation. Please correct my understanding if I'm wrong. APAs are only for those who have tested +ve or are taking care of family members who have tested +ve and cannot be used for any other situation. If that's true and you/your family have defeated Covid, why the fuss over utilisation? P.S. plz let me know if there's another use of APAs I'm not aware of
Hey all, I seriously can’t find any Philadelphia-based Big 4 management consultant job openings other than a few senior manager or higher positions. Otherwise, they are all tax audit or tech consulting. Are the analyst/associate/senior management consultant roles titled differently? FYI, I had trouble with this pre-covid. Thank you
Does Accenture taking COVID proof isn't discriminating the folks who haven't taken vaccine for health or religious concern?
Seen today. Summer 2020: starring coronavirus
Help! I’m going to a delayed-due-to-covid evening cocktail wedding reception In October in central Massachusetts. I have a closet full of dresses and a black pantsuit, all appropriate, but some are several years old or dont fit perfectly. Since y’all are far more fashionable than I am , what looks would you suggest? I’m 52.
Anyone from Guidehouse here that started during covid? I start in 2 weeks and am nervous about how onboarding will go virtually! Any insight is helpful :)
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 ..
Anyone know of any good black financial advisors/ wealth managers? I live in the DC area. During all this COVID-19 related stuff it feels like a good time to make sure my finances are in order.
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
Hey Londoners - Visiting from the US in November after a stopover in Paris. If I'm understanding correctly, I have to take a day 2 COVID test. Is it pretty easy to find a testing center? Have any of you been taking the Eurostar and dealing with this? Thanks!
Anyone travel to Massachusetts recently? Do they ask for a negative covid test at the airport? And results from rapid covid test work as a proof?

Fish! Had COVID in the past, have antibodies still, now wanting to get the vax so I can get back on the road and travel internationally... so J&J or Pfizer? Anyone who also recovered from COVID have bad reactions to either??
Going on a production in LA last minute, will be my first in person work thing in two years. So excited to be shooting again then realized 90% of my cute work production/LA weather work clothes don’t fit anymore post covid weight gain. Just ugh 😓 I wish it didn’t bother me as much as it does but won’t lie it definitely killed some of my excitement today. I’ve seen some similar posts about woman on here dreading buying new wardrobes to go back to the office and I see you!
Indian cook in New York area - Does anyone know of an Indian cook who comes to your place and cooks a bunch of Indian food in the New York area? I used to buy meals from a lady who came to my place and cooked before covid, but she has now left New York. Thank you in advance!
Consulting during corona - I’m interesting in switching to consulting and interviewed with a few firms (pre-COVID) and got an offer plus a few offers put on pause. It would be helpful to get clarity on what the industry is like now and if anyone recommends still making the switch or staying put (especially interested in Deloitte, Accenture, PWC, EY human capital practices)
Despite all the negativity about how “bad” is handling COVID, we are actually crushing it compared to most of our developed-country peers.
Currently interviewing with Deloitte S&O, what are the salary bands like for a consultant? They are saying they can't bring me in as a senior consultant because I don't meet the 5 yr work experience
What is Private Client Services within EY Tax? Is there a sector that does personal finance/retirement type services?
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?
Anyone have experience working at or applying to Worldpay/FIS? Came across a few roles there that might be a fit and would love more insight into the interview process and general culture
Applying for job at EY which requires a BS degree. I have an AS degree, 7 YOE consulting, and 15 YOE total professionally. Does the lack of a BS degree eliminate me from being considered?

New to the industry. What a whirlwind. Any advice on the starting salary of a digital producer... Have no one to talk to about it 😔 Thanks 🐠
How can you support moody, passive-aggressive clients and not let it impact your mental health? I understand that managing the relationship is largely our job in account servicing, but the stress and anxiety is taking its toll on me. Honestly feels like being in an abusive/toxic relationship. And yes, senior management and leadership are aware of this attitude and supportive wherever possible, but can only do so much. Help!
Which CC is better for sign-up bonus - Citi Premier 80K points or Chase Aer Lingus/Iberia 100K Avios points? I churn somewhat regularly and am under 5/24 by 1. I think Citi's points are more valuable but maybe I should knock out another Chase card before I'm at 5/24 again, even though Avios isn't as versatile?

I’m anticipating a few offers over the next week or so from B4 and mid tier firms. LCOL, Senior manager in speciality tax. I’ve researched some, but I assume the data is lagging the current labor shortages. Does anyone have any insight on current offers? Base comp and signing bonus. Thanks!
