Getting a nanny .... my husband and I are looking to hire a nanny for our 7 month old, our 3 y/o goes to pre-school. We've had nannies previously for our 3 y/o but they were both referred by friends. The one we are looking to hire now is our first from Care.com. Does anyone have any advice as to what we should be on the lookout for? My husband and I both work from home, but I can't help my anxiety about not knowing her, the background check was light in information, and I want to make sure he's safe
Do you give yourself a lunch break when you WFH?
what do you wear on production when you’re pregnant? my wardrobe is very black and utilitarian and I don’t wear dresses. also, since everything has been remote, the team is about to find out I’m 7 months pregnant...
About to adopt a puppy. I still wfh and will for the foreseeable future. Work comes in cycles - I am sometimes very busy, and I sometimes have way too much work. I live with my fiancé, we have a great park nearby. Would you recommend against it? Do you have any advice?
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.

How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
How can I not be awkward at conferences where all my remote coworkers that I've never met will be there? I have an issue with awkward silence and not knowing what to say or how to act.
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Hey guys, I am currently in audit looking to pivot to FDD. I have about a year of experience in audit, and 6 months internship experience in private equity.

Chances that I can negotiate going 2 days a week into the office commuting from Sac to a firm in SF and WFH the remainder of the time?

I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?

Now that tips + gov fees are baked into Uber/Lyft/Food delivery apps, I’ve become much healthier and learned to cook this year! Bless all of you still in consulting who get more points cause of this though.
Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.

B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

Honestly how hard is it to get fired in public accounting. I feel like i struggle sometimes and I can’t complete my tasks in a timely manner. Definitely can see my annoyances on my manager face.

Do you always clean shave for an interview? Have one with EY later today for SC2 and I think the stubble (clean neck) helps me hide my baby face a bit so I’m leaning towards not clean shaving.
