People who got promoted last year - how do you feel about it? I feel guilty given that most people didn’t even get a raise (in the UK). I find it hard to reconcile with the COVID gloom
Anybody having difficulty getting medical experts to respond lately? Even in non-covid practice areas?
What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?
I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
For those of your who are currently pregnant and got the vaccine, how did you feel after? Did you have any side effects? Were you nervous or anxious to get it and if so, how did you conquer your fears? I am nervous to get the vaccine while pregnant due to no long term data but now with all the mask mandates lifting I’m even more nervous to not get it with the increased risk of getting covid. Any words of encouragement would be much appreciated! Currently 17 weeks along
I’ve had a few friends die tragically in the last couple months - only one being COVID-related. I’ve been dealing with lots of grief and I’m trying out BetterHelp to talk through some stuff. Haven’t had an appointment yet, but I set my account up using my firm laptop and now I feel like that was really dumb. Am I an idiot?
This article is a good read in terms of how to handle the COVID-19 crisis: https://blog.shrm.org/blog/promoting-workplace-mental-health-in-the-age-of-covid-19
an old CD of mine is slowly turning into an Illuminati/coronavirus conspiracy theorist with each post on FB. Its sad to see but I can't stop refreshing to see what crazy thing he will post next.
Curious to know where folks are from and which state do you live in right now? (Ignore relocation because of Covid). I'll start, NJ > NJ
Since the start of the pandemic, I have been fairly safe and really haven’t gone anywhere (I think I went to TJ Maxx once in a moment of weakness lol). My family on the other hand hasn’t taken any precautions and actually did contract COVID. They keep telling me I’m paranoid and need to start going out but with COVID being worse now than it was back in March, I rather just not. I just want them off my back and wish they would respect my decision to not expose myself like I respected them.
In 2009 the H1N1 swine flu (originating from the US) infected 61M people in the US it took 6 months before an emergency was declared. Stop freaking out about Coronavirus
We’ve only been in person for two weeks and there’s already classes being quarantined because of COVID... so who’s idea was this to come back? Kinda feeling the need to say “I told you so”. 🙄
Those who have left consulting for industry, what are your hours and the culture like especially now during Covid? Ex. Does your manager/lead understand that WFH entails cooking lunch and dinner, as opposed to completely ignoring and expecting working lunch every single day. This is just one example but hoping to get varied responses to gage other company expectations
How the FMI predicted the impact of coronavirus on GDP, inflation and emplyment for each country? Any idea about data or the model?
For everyone downplaying the economic impact of COVID-19, please research the collateral damage of this ... start with the increase in suicides
How is the situation in NY? I don’t want to seem out of touch but I live in small town in Midwest and I don’t see anyone/anything rattled up or infected by COVID
Had a callback interview at DC big law about a week ago, a few hours before Covid-19 escalated things. Should I assume I did not get it or that it is on pause? Appropriate to reach out again?
Male here in NYC. Any female interested in connecting and chatting, possibly meeting? For the record, I managed to get tested for COVID, and do not have it. Understand and appreciate the concern.
Chase purchase protection - bought an outdoor furniture set for $1000. Big storm & tree branch crushed couch. Can’t buy couch alone; only whole set. I claimed $1000; they just approved $250, but no explanation. Should I take $250 and run? Or should I fight for full $1K?

Can anyone provide insight into Deloitte Consulting GPS salaries? I have a call with a recruiter this week and would like some insight. I have 2.5 YOE (I'm up for Senior promotion) and the job requisition was for a finance operations consultant. Thanks in advance!
Finally got into Chicago after a bunch of delays in SFO, and my uber driver missed exit and the trip is now 20 minutes longer due to rerouting :(

Got rejected by Guidehouse for a Consultant role. Should I throw a parade or something for dodging a bullet? Kind of pissed.
This year will be my first mother’s day. What was your best mother’s day gift/experience like? I feel like with covid I won’t be getting anything special, we didn’t discuss mothers day specifically but overall husband is against buying/ordering anything in this economy and we can’t go out😔 so I want to dream a little but also be reasonable..
Considering an offer from Proskauer in its L&E department. Anything I should be aware of before accepting? Poor culture, any hostile or particularly unfriendly and demanding partners? From my research everything seems on the up and up. Any insight is appreciated.
PSA for all you jokers languishing at LGA taxi entrance: Have your driver get off an exit or two earlier and take the city streets to the Marriott LGA where a ped bridge awaits. Can save you 60 min+
MBB/LEK or IB? An important factor is that I want to end up in NYC - born and raised wi to a SO and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. I have read the MBB/LEK competition in NYC is fierce… how true is this?
McKinsey & Company when is it okay to follow up with the recruiter about the next step? Only did 1 of the 2 first round interviews last Friday and wonder if I will be doing the remaining 2nd one or not.
How much would you expect as all in compensation when exiting to corporate strategy after spending two years post MBA in consulting?
During the panny, my agency moved a handful of us to a different office with no choice. Basically said we’d be fired if we didn’t comply. When we asked if we would ever have to move to the new city, we were given no answers for months. Now, they’re saying back to office in September and I have a feeling they’ll be expecting us to move. Should I ask for money to move? I personally can’t afford to and told them from the start I can’t move. Also, I really don’t want to leave my S/O. Help!
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
Hello! Anyone have recommendations of a good OBGYN in the Fairfax area? I don’t have a gender preference but definitely would like someone experienced because I expect complications with my age and genetic stuff etc. I will be cross posting across other threads too.
Is going to a small firm actually worth it for WLB or is it just taking a pay cut to have substantially the same hours/stress levels? Considering a move to a smaller firm for mental health but not sure if it’ll end up being more of the same. Are there things to look for when looking into smaller firms?
