It's not just speculation for non ifcs. We had a training on Tuesday from ppmd down to lead all these new COVID-19 projects we've won

Confirmed that schedulers will be using 50-55 hour weeks as the norm when identifying and allocating personnel hours in ARMS. This applies to all personnel, not just IFCS; however, it is due to the influx of IFCS work. People who have not historically been IFCS are being asked to help on new jobs.

News to me... What service line was this rumored to be for? IFCS?

What is IFCS work?

Maybe. 55 hours in arms happens for some audit engagements and other projects in the past. I would expect this situation to be more of a marathon than a sprint. Will depend on level too

I heard that it was going to be for IFCS specifically as they work on the COVID19 response. That being said at some point we will all probably we working on that.

Slow down? There hasn’t been any real investigations work for years.

No but I can confirm the same for other firms

I was recently laid off from 7 yrs in public co audit and have been casually considering a pivot to forensics. Is an out of nowhere 55-hour mandate common? Or is this purely a response to COVID? What if you already had PTO scheduled?

I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?

But both are asking questions about my over budget. What do I do? I’m scared that I will get fired, honestly. I just try to do my best. I’m thinking of having a chat with them.

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
