DC ladies any covid fitness you have enjoyed or even a studio you feel safe at? Running and at home work outs are boring me and I am just not going hard enough.
Retooling as a first year from securities lit to general corporate in silicon valley. What am I in for in terms of billable hours and learning curve? How common are those 7am-12am days/working weekends?
Moved to Atlanta about a year ago and haven’t been able to build my social circle yet. With Covid it hasn’t helped as well. Indian born desi, I am F and happily married! Would love to meet some like minded individuals. Looking forward to making some friends :)
Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?

My firm sent an email yesterday saying their tracking billable hours DAILY. It’s either they don’t think we’re working from home or about to have some layoffs 🤷🏼♀️
Hey fish fam, thinking of a side hustle for post covid and was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good business plan and financial plan template? Specifically for a restaurant. Appreciate any links you can share!
Opinions? Management now requiring everyone to have 45 billable hrs per week, not including mandatory concepting n pitch work. Most people participating in 2-3 initiatives at same time. Is this normal
Has anyone gone into compliance for a state university & hospital? As counsel or a compliance officer? Looking for insight how this compares to firm lifestyle & billable hours.
What do y’all talk to your SO about after work. With us both working from home, we are kinda in the loop of what happened all day more or less. Then at dinner we don’t want to talk about more coronavirus or work . Any ideas to get some new conversations going?
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
I’m trying to figure out what I need to do covid wise for my upcoming Europe trip (first week of August). Will be staying in Italy and Greece and passing thru (only airport) UK and Netherlands. I’m fully vaxxed from the US, will I be ok to enter/connect through these countries? There is so much conflicting info out there my head hurts.
First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s... I also ask around yet everyone says they’re fine. It’s still considered busy season here since I’m at midsize and it feels wrong not hitting atleast 40 billable hours. It would suck if I got laid off cause of it. 🥴
Why do you think everything is so busy right now? We’re pretty much sold out worldwide and my friends at McK say the same. What would cause such a large spike in business? People prepping for post-COVID?
This year has been insane. 200+ hours every month. July has been really been slow though. I’m at like 35 billable hours this month. I’m a first year in transactional and staffed on deals that haven’t picked up yet. I’m hesitant to reach out for work because I don’t want to be overwhelmed ... but I also am getting anxiety because I literally have nothing to do all day. Anyone else in this boat?
Anyone know of any good black financial advisors/ wealth managers? I live in the DC area. During all this COVID-19 related stuff it feels like a good time to make sure my finances are in order.
Any tips for meeting billable targets?
He guys I have an offer from Revolut, they are able to offer a hike of 30% on my base plus 10k GBP equity. I believe the hike is good but I am struggling to settle on the culture and the instability of a startup. Any thoughts on this?
What are some ways in which you’ve specifically contributed to gender equality in the workplace?
New EM is asking team to schedule meetings for him on his behalf. Something I haven’t seen before at my company. Is there a polite way to suggest to him that this isn’t the culture at our company?
Looking for advice/ peace of mind. Applied to my dream agency, had 2 interviews a week ago and now I haven’t heard a peep. Do I email or wait? I used to believe no need is good news but since (...)

Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
Anyone has any profit goals (wedding, down payment, etc.)? I hope to realize enough LT capital gains to pay for the part time MBA program since my employer won’t cover the expense. No less, no more!

Is now a good time to start at Deloitte? Or are more layoffs expected in the near future? Have an offer for human capital comm. for consultant level and recruiter is recommending starting on Sept 1
I’m a Product Manager who wants to change careers. What is a job where I can work independently and am more task oriented? Meaning I want to know what I have to do for the day, and I can knock it out at my own pace. Maybe it’s COVID, but I’m sick of meetings with other people and simply want to be the owner of the outcome instead of being dependent on other departments/people. Obviously bonus points if it’s a sensible transition from a PM!
Do the exit opps get better after you hit 2 YOE? Every recruiter that contacts me gives me an insultingly low offer (below or at my current comp, which isn’t good to begin with). Any ways to increase the comp of my offers, or do I just have to wait? (And btw, these low offers are after negotiating)
