Gonna join PwC M&A tax. What would be the market like if there’s another financial crisis (hopefully not). Are we the people who will be laid off first? Or we will be pulled to do tax compliance? Thanks.
Anyone know how much the settlement for the Taylor Bean Whitaker lawsuit was? Just curious about the impact on the company's overall health.
Contacted by a recruiter from PwC, I have 4 yrs of experience in management consulting with a health background. Been doing mostly healthcare operations & strategy work—what area would I align @ PwC?
30-40% small businesses already shut down. 15 dollar minimum wage, 33% increase in corporate taxes, increased payroll taxes from new health plan. Yeah... good luck economy. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/joe-bidens-15-minimum-wage-hike-would-kill-2-million-jobs-new-study-shows
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
I’ve been terminated by my firm. Is there a reason not to sign the separation agreement and accept severance?
Why shouldn’t same standards apply if you threaten to resign - irrespective of your race or gender or the type of research you do. Pretty sure I’d get fired if I used “threaten to resign” as my mode to get something

What are common exists for healthcare strategy folks? Specifically managers - possible to go into corporate dev for a provider?
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Hey all, dad is visiting and needs to get a heart condition checked out (procedure isn’t available in India). Employer health plan doesn’t cover parents. Anyone familiar with the options we have?
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
I'm dealing with life after a layoff and I don't think I'm alone here. 🐠 who have been laid off - can you share your experiences? How long was the job hunt? How did everything work out? Any advice?
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?
Hello, fish friends. Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend. I’m a new community leader for this bowl, and I was wondering — is there anything you’d like to see more of here? Things you’d like to see less of? Anything I can do to help? This bowl has helped me through my own mental health journey, and I hope it’s been beneficial to you, too. 💕
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
