Why do people keep saying San Francisco has great climate? Every night it feels like under 60 degrees in the summer and I cannot even sit outside comfortably. The rest of the year is ok but I DEFINITELY cannot live in a city with no summer.
Folks - there was a lot of chat in global (US) BCG Bowl about how great the long term benefits are in BCG (e.g., health insurance for xx years after retirement, annual income to MDPs after retirement…) Apparently all this info was supposed to be in some (US)HR microsite. Do you know where does this information reside in SEA portals? Context:
San Francisco here

Got an offer at a startup with 130 base. I can choose between SF and SLC. I think I’d prefer SLC just because I’m scared about how expensive SF is. How is the gay life in SLC like especially for a 23 yo poc?

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

Started with EY as an intern, currently a Senior 2 moving to Senior 3 in Oct. Part of Indirect Tax in the New York Metro Area. Reviews and utilization are consistently above peer group average. CPA, no Masters. Currently salary is 77k. I feel like I’m underpaid compared to peers/others when I see threads on Fishbowl. Does this seem low to anyone else? I need a 17% raise to break 90k at Snr 3, which I’d be bummed to not get after EY preached about high raises. New job searching level bummed 😔.
How do women in consulting with kids do it?! Mostly asking about the travel component. My SO and I are both in consulting. He will not switch industries if we have kids and will always be required to travel
Google Classroom and Zoom was on the fritz all morning. Lord, I have never worked so fast at multitasking of talking to a few students on Zoom, the rest of the students through Go Guardian, texting parents through ClassDojo, and calling parents. I was only able to teach math and science 🤣
