Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
I’m all for the whole movement and COVID-19 climate, but I’m tired of my social media being mainly about that. I wanna see bikini pics damnit
How bad is EY struggling? All I see on social media is that the firm is struggling/layoffs. What is going on? Is it just certain divisions or the entire firm?
Anyone here work at AARP? Looking at their Startup Advisor position. Also would like to get some inside info on company culture and how they are managing during Covid. Thx.
For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
I’ve been promised a promotion. The discussion started many months ago before Covid. When the pandemic hit, I stepped up & worked insanely hard, above my level—it’s been praised and recognized, but not rewarded. I was told the promotion will be delayed for reasons not to do with me. Am I going to get strung along? Should I start looking? Can I ask for more money when it does come? I believe I deserve a lot more money, but I’m afraid of sounding greedy or entitled, especially during a pandemic.
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
If my firm mandates the vaccine and I don’t provide proof, do they have to pay me severance when they fire me? FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m vaccinated, I just don’t want to work here anymore and I would like some extra $$$ 😂😂😂😂
D-Day? Finest hour? I’m sure we’re all hearing these ridiculous references on the news to the fight on Covid and the vaccines. Sounds sacrilegious to me. This isn’t the greatest generation by a long shot. This is the generation of whom many flouted medical guidelines, put others at risk for selfish reasons. Whined about work from home. Recklessly traveled in droves over Thanksgiving. Sorry, but just an observation about the hubris that brought out the worst in too many people.
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
If Toy Story was real... Do you think the toys would try to help us? or would they stay still and leave us to fight COVID19 alone?

Do agencies actively keep “files” on former employees? Ive been interviewed by a place I was at 3 yrs ago by their recruiters 4 different times. Never got an offer. Blacklisted there?
Curious what to expect for base salary, relocation, and sign on for an AC role in Philly?ZS Associates Thanks!
Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
Current MBA student trying to connect with EY Parthenon people. So I contacted my old EY colleagues but they said they couldn’t help
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀
On salary bowl. Ask for level, gender, $$$, exp for various social peeps. Associate says this 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Upcoming BCG interview. Can someone please share what to expect in terms of format, number of interviews, case vs behavioral etc.
BCG 🐠 or anyone else who recently interviewed with BCG - is there a new interview format? If so, can someone please share this format. I saw someone mentioned online test, and math test etc. instead of case studies.
How easy is it to move between groups at FAANG? Example, moving from AWS to Amazon Music, or moving from Google to YouTube? TIA!🙌🏼
Project management software - ours sucks. Looking into replacements. Anybody have ones they love? Reasons why? Need it primarily for managing internal workflow (non client-facing). Please help!
Any insist into DoorDash’s New Verticals team? Specifically DashMart? Have a screen for a manager position with them and am wondering about culture, pay, etc
Joining as a Senior Consultant to Big 4. My PPT skills are limited. How do I make up for this skill gap? Any resources you would recommend?
Currently interviewing with Deloitte S&O, what are the salary bands like for a consultant? They are saying they can't bring me in as a senior consultant because I don't meet the 5 yr work experience
Got interviewed by Capgemini virtually. They took a pic of me holding my govt Id at the end. Is it normal protocol or I can assume a positive result considering my interview went average?
What is the best platform to buy crypto? Only interested in the big guys (BTC, ETH, etc.) Have been hearing Coinbase Pro. Any downside of that? I also heard crypto.com because they allow credit card purchases. Any advice? Brand new to crypto investing. Plan to buy & hold rather than trade. Thanks!
Rant: apply for job online. Job emails me with 7 questions as "next steps", one of which is salary. I email back. They email back (at 9pm mind you) "we can't meet your salary expectations"...
