With the Whitehouse about to push new Coronavirus messaging: ‘Learn to live with it’, push people to accept 50-100k new cases per day and encourage numbness to death where are our Dems?! Why aren’t there daily house subpoenas and hearings?!
Can’t believe I’m saying this...but I need to get back to office and work with people. Working at home is making me realize how much I miss the routine of the week when I had to drive or fly to work. Basically, I’m ready to travel for work. Not the same amount as Pre-Covid, but 50% 50% balance would be nice if the industry moves to this type of consulting model. Thoughts?
Anyone in D.C. or Baltimore looking to connect IRL? I grew up in central MD, lived in NoVA for a while, moved out of the area to other parts of the East Coast+West Coast and am back here for now. A lot of my friends from here are either married, moved out of the area, avoiding going out cuz of COVID, or hermits. 44/M
Does anybody have any data on likelihood of dying from covid vs likelihood of dying from the vaccine? I got the vaccine, my friend didn’t and she keeps arguing that it’s more likely to die from the vaccine than getting covid. I tried researching but couldnt find a comparing data. Help!
Two questions: 1) I’m pregnant with my first baby (16 weeks), any advice on when to disclose? 2) Does that timing advice change given our current COVID circumstances? I’ve been WFH since March, and while the Firm hasn’t indicated it’s going to require us back in, a handful of partners I work have started to mention it. I’d like to nip that talk in the bud and feel like a reasonable way to do that is to disclose. Thanks in advance for any thoughts?
I’m planning to visit my parents after 2 years. Last time I went home, it was with a fiancé - that fell apart during COVID. I feel like a failure going home and can’t believe this is causing me so much anxiety. I want to feel happy about meeting my parents and friends after so long but I’m so not in the zone to deal with comments and questions about him. Anyone dealt with this before? Any advice is appreciated!
Just got a verbal offer but company asked if my start date can be pushed out to late summer due to Covid. How many of you are in this same boat?
The more I look at this COVID executive order the more it looks like a scam. Similar to the cool toy or trip a parent promises that never happens. Also like your toxic ex who likes to deflect blame. •Money is coming from FEMA. Hello Hurricane season?!? •Months to set up. •Feds are only paying 75% and wanting States to handle more.
Hey everyone! I’m looking to move out to London, I lost my projects due to COVID and if anyone could help me out with a referral in the UK or Europe I’d be very grateful! I can offer a good wine and dine in exchange! 🍾🍱
A sad and sobering milestone.. US Covid deaths cross 200K. But why does it matter if we can MAGA..
A recruiter told me my portfolio is not “digital” enough. So I created an instagram account named corona virus and started following people, just for them to get the notification. Am I digital now?

I bet the US Government would get Covid under control pretty damn quickly if major corporations suspended campaign contributions in light of the economic environment.
Need a few good questions for a micro-aggressions webinar I’m hosting.. any one of you done this before or have any ideas? Planning to touch upon various types of micro-aggressions such as race, religion, gender, religion, age, title etc.
Been in Consulting for over 25 years. Looking for a change. Love stock and options trading. Have been doing system functional and integration testing and like it. Led teams of people (even clients and client contractors). I like to coach, mentor, and motivate. Getting tired of working 60+ hours a week , needing to do +1s and 0 to 2% increases for “great work” but still bring a positive attitude to the team. Just taking PTO and reevaluating next steps. Company/BU recommendations?

Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.

What kinds of models can I create for low frequency businesses? I recently switched to a startup at a data analyst role and have been teaching myself about statistics…I found survival analysis models and wanted to try and implement one to determine our customer retention rate and eventually a LTV The business I’m in is very low frequency (most customers use our product once a year, but we do have many users) and I’m worried this will lead to poor results. What other models do…
In my town, we have been getting daily email notifications from the school district informing the parents of new Covid cases, usually it’s 1-3 new cases per email/day, the last email earlier this evening, 22 people (students, faculty, and district employees) tested positive!! Infection is spiking bc of the holidays. I am so glad we made the decision of keeping our kids home for virtual classes instead. How is the situation in your town?
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
Had a final round interview today where I believe 3/4 of them went really well. The call with the manager was okay - they didn’t seem as engaged. Will this hinder me?
Anyone have insight on Strategy roles at PepsiCo? Interesting work/culture/comp/growth/etc.
Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job. I negotiated my way out for several reasons 1) My boss was not comfortable doing diversity initiative insisting that all lives matter and we’re meritocracy based business 2) I was responsible for 33 countries, which was very demanding in a time of Covid, as I had to be on most crisis committees directly or as as oversight, and at the same time I have a child on spectrum, and with the
