COVID life has got me in some major frump. What cute clothes are you guys wearing? Looking to update a bit for spring. Still anticipating to be mostly at home though through summer if not longer.
If your team is looking to add another analyst to “take on workload” but your own workload has been minimal, is this writing on the wall for you to find exit ops? I’ve been a good performer, but since Covid started, I’ve had barely any work to do - even including the self starting projects I’ve worked on. This is in industry btw. Thx 🐠
I am a customer consultant and I am now really stressed out due to covid, I want a change in my life trying to learn aws. Preparing for SAA-C02 i need some help with practice exam and also on a decision of which stream to proceed with now Devops or sysops. Any leads much appreciated.
Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
So burned out from surviving COVID at AWS that I'm actually thinking about going back to consulting since it was less work. How's the Transactions/M&A world doing these days?
Would you be okay with your daughter joining a sorority? Assuming for this post, that covid is no longer an issue.
Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)

Has anyone else had their client send all employees and consultants home for work to avoid coronavirus? Mine did today, Wednesday through Friday! Crazy!
Has anyone traveled to Montréal (by air) from NYC recently? Where did you get covid tested? Thanks in advance!!
How cautious are people actually being during coronavirus? I’ll make a poll in the comments, but is there any data on stay at home compliance?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Going home this weekend - what is the most time efficient (minimal disruption to work) way to get rapid COVID test?
Is Qatar airways a good option for parents coming from India in June? Are there any covid restrictions other than presenting a negative report? Their trip would be from New Delhi to Seattle if it matters
Someone at PwC recently said they wouldn’t want anyone other than DJT leading the country during the coronavirus crisis. Unless that person is the devil harvesting souls, I hope they’ll read this:

Salary for senior business analyst at McKinsey in the US? Curious since you guys don’t go from BA to Associate
Just initiated a 401K rollover for a very sweet couple, both aged 63. They both spent the last 17 or so years working at Wal Mart. Not in corporate, but in regular ol' stores.
2YoE at Tier 2 FS practice, considering a switch to commercial law. Any thoughts on the long-term TC trajectory at MBB/Tier 2 consulting vs Magic circle law? Also on the stability of the respective careers? I have this perception that even if I don’t survive Commercial law, at least I can move to Swindon or Milton Keynes and retrain as a high street solicitor doing divorce filings making £50k for the rest of my career. Exit opportunity for consultants seems to be pretty bleak in UK.

Two of my really good friends at work have had their work dry up in the past few months (because of the Rona). I'm like two months ahead of them on hours, and they're worried about not making their minimum billable requirements. Feel sort of guilty and try to avoid talking about hours with them. I'm just hoping the firm doesn't give them trouble...

Anyone had an interview with Stern as a reapplicant? I was admitted last year but couldn’t enroll due to personal issues so wondering if the interview might be different than the first one.

Still NO PROMOTION Talent f/b to coach - 'Scatterplot cut off didn't meet, can do better next yr' MD called today - 'You are doing good work, want to reward you 1.5L bonus with 12 month retention policy' I said - 'I am 100% sure I would be returning it if I accept, hence I decline this' Wats his next step?
To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?
Start tomorrow but I don’t get a match for 401k until 2nd year. Living at home and wanted to pay off my loans. Is it ok if I just do loans, max out IRA, and have an emergency savings? Projected CONTD
I am on vacation but I can't relax.
I used to think “Go back to your home country” was an insult. Now I actually think it’s good advice. I don’t fit into the bro culture here.
