This is Joe Biden's America. "This used to be a beautiful, safe city — I don’t even recognize it. Nothing’s open, nothing’s the same,” said a passerby and former Portland resident named Jennifer, who added that it upsets her to see businesses boarded up for protection against violent protesters who emerge at night." https://www.koin.com/news/health/coronavirus/nothings-the-same-downtown-portland-copes-with-closures/
With school starting up again and Covid cases surging, how is your school handling it? Are you starting remote or in-person? Are teachers in your school calling out sick in large numbers? Are you nervous about going back? Do you feel supported? What are your concerns with Covid as you step back into the classroom?
5wks pregnant and wondering — when did people tell their teams they were pregnant? I’m mindful that we’re “always on” during COVID, and I’m thinking about dr appts and what to do if/when morning sickness shows up, since I’m on zoom ~6hrs/day... but it’s also so painfully early. Would love to hear how other moms have handled! Did this allow you to create better boundaries for things like protecting your sleep and stress?
I’m feeling anxiety about Coronavirus. Does anyone else think that the virus is being used by the government for population control? I don’t know if I’m paranoid.
I am in my 40s and started late. I starting buying index funds after Covid and now I am in net loss even with conservation approach. I did buy indexes on top as well. Shall I collect cash before I buy more in market?
Folks getting laid off since COVID, how are you finding the job market since then? Have you been actively looking or fully using the time to rest and recharge?
Does everyone remember when they were blaming the high Covid-19 case counts on Trump? Who do we blame now? 150k cases a day and a 1k deaths. 🤔
If my case set up is still 100% remote next week, what happens with meals? Can I use the “normal” policy when working from BCG office and COVID 2*meals policy when working from home? Or just the COVID 2*meals policy only?
Orlando TSA worker tests positive for the covid-19. Guess which Big4 has their national trainings out of Orlando.
Honest opinion, Whats ur take on workplaces mandating the COVID VACCINES on their staff? Literally, where i work at they tell us "if you dont get it then we will let you go" like How is that a choice? Im by all means not an anti vaxxer but i am against forcing something on someonw that wants no part of that Just a little venting 😃😃
Not looking for judgment here. Son is almost 16 and refuses the vaccine (has good research to go with decision). Hubby and I both vaccinated. When do I let go and allow him to be an adult and when do I trump his free-will with the mom card?

my bf & I lived in nyc but since covid happened he has moved out to a suburb to save money on rent and live with his parents for a few months. I quarantined out of nyc with family in the spring & early summer but came back to nyc to avoid doing long distance with my bf. He didn’t come into the city this past weekend to see me (I have spent some time out of the city last month with his family too) & to me that was a red flag that he’s really not making a huge effort to see me? Am I overthinking?
Was originally planning an October 2020 wedding (nothing booked yet luckily) but now with COVID am thinking of delaying until 2021. Thoughts on when weddings of 50+ guests should start back up in USA?
I can't be the only one who wants to quit their job right now right? I've been dreaming of it for almost as long as I've been here & am now feeling super trapped/claustrophobic given COVID unknowns
Cloth masks are everywhere now. Anyone know of any data on their effectiveness in prevention and transmission of COVID?
I need my consultants to travel. The work is in supply chain distribution and needs to be onsite with the team and end users. I am rolling off consultants who won’t travel. I don’t want people to get sick but work needs to get done. Yes everyone will be following all COVID protocols and following best practices. Thoughts?
Post without company
Ah now it did.
When you're at the office past 7 and feel like dinner should just be served to you on a mother f'in golden platter
Thoughts on ditching your team in the middle of a project because a better opportunity comes along? I know it's shitty, but dog eat dog... right?
Why do I give myself so much work...?
Most creative use of a hotel keycard? This week I've used one for a shoehorn and windshield ice scraper, and cut one into collar stays
Does your firm do experienced lateral hiring?
I still find it odd when I travel to a city that has a full service gas station and someone pumps gas for my rental car... Looking at you Ewing, NJ.
Girl on my project picks whatever airline is cheapest every week. Does she think whoever saves the firm the most money gets an award?
The moment my manager showed me how good she is at brown-nosing clients was the moment I knew I can't do this forever #getmeout
Hillary Clinton would have made an excellent consultant... All she does is bullshit every answer people ask her
How can you guys just be happy making no difference in this world at all. Oops, directed at accountants and auditors. The skill requires zero critical thinking. I am a living proof.
I come home and the only food in my house is ice cream and beer. I've been doing the conference-call-but-still-in-pjs since 5am (west coast life). Ice cream and beer for breakfast?
