Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
MBAs - is recruiting being impacted by COVID-19?
Created a design app prototype that’s meant to be a holiday virtual card for my girlfriend who I haven’t seen in a couple weeks since the recent covid spike. Anyone care to user test it before I send the link to her?
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
What an idea Sirji? Even the police in Kerala think different😀. In my state, we would have given the police gifts to conduct the marriage lol https://www.deccanherald.com/amp/national/south/police-offer-appreciation-certificates-and-gifts-for-weddings-following-covid-19-protocol-in-kerala-980889.html
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 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.
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?
Trump just aired what is essentially a campaign ad, attacking the press and praising his response, in the middle of the coronavirus briefing. He forced the country to watch this live.
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!
Between Covid and protesting, how are you all staying sane in all this? I can’t focus on anything and I feel so much guilt on top of all the other stress.
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.
Should I be worried about covid if my wedding is in December?? I know nobody knows for sure, but just wanting to see what others are thinking!
Last year at this time we were averaging 20 deaths a day from COVID. We were crying for a vaccine. Today we are averaging 40 deaths a day we have the vaccine and they are whining why do we need mandates. Really?
I thought it's possible only during college days..covid made it possible for office too😉
Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
Best Toronto spg? I want to stay in a hotel with a great location in the city if that clarifies what I'm looking for
Questions for a newer investor. I don’t come from a finance background but I’ve been educating myself on stocks and just started investing this year! As a 24yr old I’m in if for the long term. I started with an ETF but want to expand. I’d like to hear different opinions if people believe diversifying portfolio with different sectors (like individual tech and healthcare stocks) is important, or better to first buy more shares of one ETF then diversity?
Is it recommended to get two full years of consulting experience before looking for a move elsewhere...for more comp (say to another Big 4, industry, attempt at MBB or FAANG)? Already have 8 yoe in the DoD space outside of consulting. And about 16 months of consulting exp

Anyone here at Ford Motor Company who can refer a friend to an internship position? TIA!
Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?
When all your associates have rolled off and you have to address the review comments left by yourself... 😳
Is hiring a cleaning service a waste of money if you live in an apartment? I live alone in a 2 bedroom, and I absolutely despise cleaning.
Can I downgrade a CSR to a CSP?
Has anyone worked with Jefferson Consulting Group? Trying to get an interview with them tomorrow.
Feedback I’ve received from clients and colleagues on my leadership and deliverables are “exceeding expectations” on all areas. The past year I’ve not had much interaction with the partners from my team, as I’ve been working with EYP quite a lot as no new projects started when I was available for staffing. I had my YE review last week and the YE feedback I got was “we don’t really know any of his work, he needs to engage more with our team”. Will this affect my compensation and bonus this year?
How are lateral signing bonuses structured? How long do you have to stay for your bonus to not be clawed back? Are there other requirements attached, ie meeting certain expectations or billable thresholds?
