Does everyone remember when they were blaming the high Covid-19 case counts on Trump? Who do we blame now? 150k cases a day and a 1k deaths. 🤔
I got an offer from Cognizant and they are giving me senior associate projects. I am having total 5.8 years of experience. I heard Cognizant has fired employees during COVID period. How is the work culture in Cognizant right now . Is it a good choice to join Cognizant. What's the scope of oracle apps dba in Cognizant.
For those who had COVID and lost your sense of taste, did you lose it completely or were the flavors just less strong?
I took metro and met with a friend over the fourth weekend. I am having headache and feeling sleepy. Body temp feels high but when I checked there’s no fever. My friend said he coughed a bit but not much. Should I get tested for COVID??
my bf & I lived in nyc but since covid happened he has moved out to a suburb to save money on rent and live with his parents for a few months. I quarantined out of nyc with family in the spring & early summer but came back to nyc to avoid doing long distance with my bf. He didn’t come into the city this past weekend to see me (I have spent some time out of the city last month with his family too) & to me that was a red flag that he’s really not making a huge effort to see me? Am I overthinking?
I can't be the only one who wants to quit their job right now right? I've been dreaming of it for almost as long as I've been here & am now feeling super trapped/claustrophobic given COVID unknowns
Urgent: Did anyone take Ivermectin for covid in India? Did it work? Doctors/WHO/CDC all providing conflicting information.
Under-reaction, appropriate amount of action, or overreaction to the Coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Please just choose one, curious what the people think!
Cloth masks are everywhere now. Anyone know of any data on their effectiveness in prevention and transmission of COVID?
All of the Covid testing centers me are booked and not sure what to do. I have a sore throat + have started coughing a little and both of these symptoms started yesterday. I have taken 3 rapid tests and they are all negative. Went I confirm with pcr but can’t right now - should I assume I’m ok with 3 rapids or just assume I have Covid ?
In Georgia. Going out to eat tomorrow. Worth risking Covid so I don’t have to clean the dishes after dinner.
The quality of workpapers have dropped so much during covid. Just read through a workpaper where the control description was a process, and the work performed talks about everything besides the process/control.
Although most ppl here are no longer students, but what do you think about the new ICE legislation regarding intl’ students not allowed to stay in the US if their schools go online-only? US is no.1 in COVID cases right now, very few countries have opened borders with the US, how do they think the students are going to get home?? Not to mention the time difference + no change to tuition
I think i have a few strikes against me as a gay man: asian and short. it may just be covid, but it's even harder now a days ☹
A friend of mines father died from complications of COVID. Was in the hospital for 2 months, what can I do to ease her burden at this time?
My wife is pregnant with our second kid. We have both been vaccinated and also taken booster shots. I go to the gym a couple of times a week where people don't wear masks and proof of vaccines are not required for membership. She is concerned I could pass on Covid and complicate the pregnancy & suggesting reducing the freq of going to the gym. Reports of miscarriage, still birth can be found online. What should I do?
I am in my 40s and started late. I starting buying index funds after Covid and now I am in net loss even with conservation approach. I did buy indexes on top as well. Shall I collect cash before I buy more in market?
My dad is positive for covid (mild thankfully) so I ordered groceries through instacart for them. On top of the $70 order (with some marked up prices already) instacart charged an additional $20 in fees. Is that standard? Seems like a crazy markup and like they're triple charging in markup, delivery fee, service fee, etc. Am I missing something for a better way to do online groceries in the city?
So I haven’t been the gym in a while because of COVID. Anybody had luck finding gym equipment to buy? All the stores I check are sold out or can’t deliver
Feeling trapped in my own house from working from home too long. I need a place to go to work everyday that isn’t my house but obviously not a lot of options since a lot of things are closed due to Covid. Anyone else find a way to deal with this?

Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.

Nieces and nephews of Uncle D, are we getting new coffee machines?!?! I was in McLean last year and they had the sad flavia ones but just went again and there are nice ones with real beans! Firm wide?
Just started my 10 straight days of the “no pants dance”! Otherwise known as a remote week. Haven’t had one in a very long time.

I come home and the only food in my house is ice cream and beer. I've been doing the conference-call-but-still-in-pjs since 5am (west coast life). Ice cream and beer for breakfast?

How do you deal with a partner who wants to have team dinner every night? I just started a project and the SM said we’ll be viewed as “not a team player” if we try to blow it off
Does anyone actually prefer a 2 wheel roller to the 4 wheel spinner? I don't get it but I still see consultants with 2 wheelers. I find it so much easier to walk the 4 wheeler alongside me.
If a partner sent out a racist email and it got forwarded to you, would you report it to ethics? He basically suggested a team name that equates to something along the lines of "ching chang chong".
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
