Let’s start a thread. What’s one thing you’re able to do right now that you’ll have to stop when you go back to the office? For me, it’s profusely swearing at my laptop when my team or client pisses me off 😂

McK fish - just accepted an offer for a BA role (3 yoe) and feel like I may have lowballed myself? Salary is close to what I’m making now (and know comp growth is much higher so didn’t negotiate), but should I have asked for an Associate title given my yoe? Curious what the minimum yoe is for associate hires (or SBA, if that’s an official title)
Things to do in salt lake city? Have 4-5 hours.
Taking the at home GRE tonight. I have ADHD and noticed before when taking the GRE that even after take my adderall, I found it hard to focus. I was losing my train of thought in the middle of reading sentences and would have to reread several times.
Was this the adderall making me too amped up/wired, or was it because I didn't take enough adderall? Has anyone experienced this where adderall had a negative impact on test taking ability?
I want to take a year of leave to study a foreign language. Is it possible to come back into consulting after a year of not working? Can I come back to the same firm? I’d be leaving with 4yoe at a senior consultant level.

I am staying in the US only for few years so that I didnt join any 401k or pension plan. However I see this statement on my employee details: "You are not vested in your pension benefit as of 12/31/2019. Assuming continuous service, you may vest in your pension benefit on 01/27/2021, your earliest vesting date." what does it mean exactly? I also see there is 5k credited. I'd appreciate if someone can explain. thanks

For those without LinkedIn premium: do you have private mode on (so you can’t see who viewed your profile and others can’t see if you’ve viewed their profile)?
I usually am successful in my cases by getting a positive resolution. However, when people see I'm junior I feel they try to test me more and I have to push the case farther than it should have to go.
I haven't lost a case yet and have multiple wins under my belt. It's just frustrating when they stonewall me.
Was planning to quit early next year, before COVID became a thing. How do I stay motivated knowing I want to live this job and don't need the high salary. (I can't leave yet because I want to use some of my benefits early next year)
