Have any of your investment banks actually struggled financially due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown?
Too much noise out there - can someone confirm or deny whether the US Government funded gain of function research related to Covid?
Just got a 2nd antibody test. My 1st test and my 2nd test were both positive. Assuming the test each has a 10% rate for false positives, I assume the likelihood that I don’t have antibodies is less than 1%. Still wary of the results, but definitely feel a lot less anxious about Covid now. Bought my test directly from Quest and my insurance will reimburse. Had mid flu like symptoms (fatigue, fever/chills, sore throat) for 2-3 days, and nasal congestion/loss of taste for a week.
Leaders, Could you share your thoughts, that you are willing and able to share, regarding:
1. How are your clients viewing post-Covid in-office work?
2. How do you think expectations for face-to-face work and travel (and the associated expenses) will change for your teams based on client expectations?
3. What are the views of your teams re: willingness / eagerness to travel?
Hello, due to covid I moved in with my parents and was able to save some money to buy a house. My parents basement and garage were already full of my brother’s items ( Navy Guy) so I put my items in a storage unit. I am looking for a moving company that can get my items from the storage to new house. Any suggestions of good and reliable movers? I need the movers to load, unload and set up some furnitures. I live in Atlanta GA now if that helps.
If I originally got the Moderna vaccine, is it advisable (ie is it better protection against COVID) to get a Pfizer booster? I don’t see any info about which booster to get if you didn’t get J&J
So...seems like shut downs are headed our ways. Why are schools requiring us to come in? I worked for multiple teachers last shut down, and honestly went above and beyond any other para in our building. I have three kids ages 8-11. This will put me under a tremendous hardship if I have to go to work everyday and find a sitter. Not to mention- when I brought this to my principals attention he said I might have to take Covid leave. Covid leave only lasts so long- correct? The. What do I do?
Thoughts on REITs? Their values are still deflated compared to pre COVID levels, and interest levels are still at zero... if a REIT in question has a good balance sheet, what do you 🐟 think?
This will happen to many Trump supporters. Until it hits them in the nuts is when they actually wake up. Fox News and the many irresponsible Republicans in government are causing this to happen. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/man-who-said-coronavirus-hoax-22038755
I bet the US Government would get Covid under control pretty damn quickly if major corporations suspended campaign contributions in light of the economic environment.
Heelllppp! My husband accidentally left his grocery COVID disinfectant spray in the same spot where I keep my water spray bottle (they are unfortunately the same color) I sprayed a sweet red pepper plant with the mix generously and poured some in because the plant seemed dry. It’s 70% ethanol. What should I do?? Repot immediately with fresh soil?
How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!
I’m curious to get the groups thoughts: things like masks haven’t really seen any “innovation” but with the likelihood of COVID being around for a while, do you expect any companies to try to upend the status quo?
Hi ME fishes! Does anyone know how BCG and McKinsey are doing in the ME with the COVID situation? Are there more CTL than usual? If you have the choice to stay in the US or go to the ME, what would you do?
Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise
I received a job offer from a major tech company that has been working remotely during Covid. However, they want me to work in the office three days a week starting in January. Given everything that’s happening with COVID in NYC, I’m hesitant. Before the current surge in cases I was open to it, but now it seems very risky. How should I navigate this? The broader team is one of the few working in-person.

Any thoughts on expected compensation in the industrial-military complex at a mid-senior level? Example titles would be Technical Program Manager, Engineering Manager Associate Director at a company like Raytheon, Lockheed, NG, etc. Related expertise would be in software engineering, cybersecurity, program management, etc.
You’re getting promoted but anticipating offer is going to be lower then expected and you want to negotiate (meeting has not happened yet). Would you bring up that the offer is lower than expected in the meeting or be thankful and excited during the meeting and set up a follow up to discuss compensation? I know it would need approval by more than just my boss anyway

Team I have some questions about primary market research for a drug. I know largely what it is and what it is aiming to achieve, but not sure when companies would do it. Eg does it tend to happen after a certain level of maturity or de risking of a drug, or is it more standard practice for anything in the pipeline. Additionally are market research outcomes considered a source of truth re a drugs commercial viability or is it just one input?

WFH with my pets
first it was Omicron, then Flucron and now Deltacron. We are going to be running out of alphabets soon!
I don't use Linux :p
New to Fishbowl?
unlock all discussions on Fishbowl.
Onsite opportunities are easier to get in mid scale companies and also depends on the role
With the whole omicron strain, I wouldn't be surprised if most companies went back to WFH for awhile.
Would you be open to a hybrid role?
Yeah. I am fine with it.
I don't think they ever completely stopped.
Not from what I've seen - I think there are potential opportunities for on-site roles but it won't happen for a while. Why are you looking for those?
