How much do you tip your building for XMas/holiday bonus? The doorman/staff have been awesome so want to make sure I’m tipping a good amount after a tough year.
Is it bad or weird that I actually kinda miss work? Just a teeeeeeeny bit. I've been abroad on vacation for about 2 weeks now.
I’m going as a plus one to my bf’s corporate holiday party. It’s going to be at Cipriani, and the dress code is cocktail attire, with hints of holiday festivity. It’s a fintech company but has been in the industry for a while. What kinds of dress should I wear? Haven’t been to a holiday party outside of a startup environment so I want to look well established and not too “party-ish.”
How do you physically handle holiday tips in a large doorman building when the management doesn't do any coordination or anything? Do I need to physically track down every staff member to hand it to them? There are around ten doormen, some of whom only work very late at night. And I only see the maintenance staff when I call them for help. What have other people done in this situation? All my previous buildings have done pooled tips, so this is new to me.
What’s going on with me? I’m a 28M but I don’t seem to look forward to or get excited about anything anymore. I took a vacation recently but it didn’t help. I bought myself new things but the excitement didn’t last longer than an hour. I’m doing very well at work but I honestly hate what I do. I went to a few therapists and they are all good listeners, but I don’t feel like it’s helping me.

Does anyone else just want to skip Christmas this year? I used to really like it, but now it's hard not to roll my eyes when I think about the holiday. I'm also telling everyone not to get me anything. Nothing is wrong, I just couldn't be less interested at the moment.
Have you taken time off to do an externship? What was your experience and how did you secure it? (And were you paid?)
It's anyways great getting a Christmas Eve email from your partner, esp if he's implying you'll be on site Monday Dec 26th despite it being a holiday.
Has anyones company done a virtual holiday party and if so was there anything specific they did that you enjoyed? I’m in charge of planning one for my team.
What is an appropriate holiday gift amount (or %) for care-givers at your kid's daycare?
I was offered an amazing job that I’m super excited about. I’m waiting for the background check to clear before I give notice. I’ve been told background checks are taking forever right now. Has anyone else had a background check recently - if so, how long did it take? I’m trying to get an idea for what I should propose for my start date…I really want to have some extended time off before I start.
On the bench this week, have PTO Friday, but have already mentally checked out and it’s not even noon on Monday. I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I just had to say it to all the randoms on FB.
Outside of the Big 4 - what are some other good consulting firms in the DC/MD/VA area that have Healthcare arms? Have had interviews at 3 of the Big 4 now trying to cast my net wider.
Thoughts on joining a boutique consulting firm during this economy? Is it typically viewed as safer or riskier than bigger firms? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I know many of the bigger firms had layoffs but I imagine they have much more in the pipeline/budget/resources whereas boutique firms may or may not have had layoffs (is there a reputable source about this online?) but have fewer of the other items.
If you give notice on the bench are you usually shown the door? Or do they let you ride out the 2 weeks?

Can be remote some of the time, but really needs to be local - Knox (outside of), TN. I would really like to have someone who has some accounting recruiting experience.
I feel resentful about myself. I got the opportunity in another Big 4 to have my promotion and promotional pay bump but I chose to stay. It has been a short period of time of staying in D. I don't feel happy or unhappy. I feel stupid to make any decision here.

Could somebody at McKinsey provide an overview of the health insurance benefits options? I should get a surgery done within a year, and I'm starting a new job at McKinsey soon. I'm wondering if it would be worth it to wait a few months until I start. I heard it's good, but not sure if better than EY's. Thank you
