This is what happens when you think you’re being careful, but really you’re just being selfish https://www.forbes.com/sites/victoriaforster/2020/11/12/maine-wedding-gives-half-of-the-guests-coronavirus-outbreak-leads-to-177-covid-19-cases-and-7-deaths/
My husband turned out positive for Covid 19 and I’m negative (still). Anybody out there who took care of someone with Covid cares to share advice? 🙏
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
How can I accelerate my path to FIRE? Currently making ~$5.2k/month after taxes and send money to the following: - $500 for expenses (living with parents during covid) - $2.7k to max 401k and IRA with mega backdoor contributions - $1.5k towards down payment savings in HYSA - $400 to brokerage account
Condolences to the family of the teacher in North Carolina that recently died from Covid. Sadly-she won’t be the last of our profession to die in the “line of duty.”
I was up for a June promotion and now am doing the work sans title due to COVID-19 - now with no promised promotion after 2 years as an AAE. Thoughts? Do I find another job elsewhere, or stick it out?
Been getting huge waves of not wanting to work because I know I’m only in it for the money. Except that doesn’t even feel worth it anymore. Just started a new project that isn’t interesting, but is chargeable. Need some advice from fellow fishes. Oh, to add on, I had a vacation planned for Santorini earlier in April, but was cancelled due to COVID. 😭
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Coronavirus task force. I sincerely hope at this point both the republicans and democrats stop criticizing each other and act with sincerity to do the right things for the people.
If anyone is going from the East Bay to Yosemite tomorrow morning, please let me know. I would really appreciate it if I could get a ride 🙏🏼 Of course I’m splitting the cost of gas and can bring snacks! I’m also vaccinated and just got a negative covid test. Thanks!
Remember when coronavirus was a big story?
Alixpartners fishes - have you started traveling again? Do you foresee your travel requirements reducing post covid
Do you think it’s safe to move mid April given the increasing restrictions because of the coronavirus?
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Big Oof. Deloitte are managing a Covid-19 testing centre in the UK (in addition to other centres and the logistics between) and yep, they suck at it. I know partners will bid for anything but wow.
12 weeks pregnant - first baby. Got an amazing job offer to start in January. Gave my verbal yes, but upon receiving the written offer, learned travel expectation (post-COVID) was 50% not 25%. (cont)
Can we talk healthcare? Republicans want to kill pre-existing conditions protections with Obamacare. Covid may have long-term effects that could be pre-existing conditions. Millions of people have lost their jobs (and job-sponsored health care) and will soon have no health care (because it'll be prohibitively expensive with pre-existing Covid conditions). Trump is trying to repeal the ACA with no replacement. Why would anyone who’s had Covid and is unemployed vote for Trump?
I am evaluating a L2 role at a regional brick and mortar retailer that does >$250M in revenue. Curious how people might perceive this, given the current state of retail / COVID.
Working on building a website to assist with award bookings and provide credit card/points consultations. What would you like to see out of this type of service?
I’m applying this year for MBA (Fall 2021 start), but really want to shoot my shot for MBB before that, BCG specifically, because I can’t deal with all the EY BS anymore. Say I was actually able to get an offer, would I be blacklisted from BCG if I left for an MBA 6 months after being hired?
Anyone have the latest PwC comp grid?
PwC folks - what code do we use for sick leave? Can we use it when caring for someone else? (Such as a baby)
If you are thinking about going to the client site or the office tomorrow think to yourself, Am I saving lives? If the answer is NO then WFH!
What should I make my freelance rate for a copywriter that has Internship and college writing experience?
🤣 gotta miss those travel days
People who have the Amex platinum - how did you use the airfare credit? Preferred airline is UA and I don’t want to lose the credit at the end of December. No other trips planned until next year.
Does anyone have any insights into the case study used for PI wealth management interviews
I’m really thinking about going back to school to obtain an MBA in like 2 years. Are there any certification(s) that I should get to increase my chances of getting employed by one of the MBB firms in the meantime? TIA
i am irrationally angry/annoyed at my job and it’s affecting my personal life. My bosses expect me to pick up the slack from other coworkers and I am one of the only people on the team who constantly has statutory deadlines year round (both GAAP or IRS driven) so slacking off really isn’t an option. any tips on how to cope? i don’t want this affecting my romantic relationship

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
If you could make the same salary you do now doing something mindless, like waiting tables, would you do it?
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
