Feeling a little defeated. Finally got a good job with great pay. I want to move in with family and aggressively pay off student loans. Save for a house. Help my family!
Except there’s a chance my employer might cut my salary because of the relocation. Cost of living being less where the family is.
Everything will just take longer!
I feel trapped and just sad. Has this happened to anyone else? How did you go about it?
I think I should leave and find a real remote job, not covid remote.
For May 2020 grads who had their start dates delayed from August 2020 to January 2021 because of Covid are you expecting to make senior this promotion cycle? From what I’ve heard Senior is basically guaranteed after 2 YOE, but because of the delayed start date for our start class we’ll only be at 1.5 YOE this promotion cycle. Do you think they’ll grant them or wait until the end of next performance year?
Which firms have okayed WFH (excluding client travel)? Have any? Currently WFH (left nyc during covid) and have no desire to move to a big city if I switch companies
Nothing has changed about the coronavirus... i think the market will inevitably come down in a day or two. Tmrw might be a good day to buy more puts
Any men out there with long hair? Aka can be put up in a neat bun? Will be doing lateral interviews and trying to figure out if it’s a big deal? When I last interviewed 7 years ago, I had my hair short; same for firm prof., learned I had curly hair when I grew it out over COVID, really like it & wanna keep it. I know the industry’s conservative so figured I’d get some thoughts. For what it’s worth, I’m a senior associate and a nonblack POC (if that makes a difference although I hope it doesn’t).
Not from the US but settled here right before covid. Seeing first hand how important American football culture is but I don't know the game at all.
Any resources to learn? Google hasn't been much help.
I’m single again and I wanna meet someone new. Hate the dating apps. How did you find a date during and after covid?
How do you guys really think COVID-19 will affect the rest of the school year. My coworkers and a bunch of other people seem to think we won’t go back until the fall 😕 It breaks my heart to hear.
Hello! Just found this bowl, and glad to be here! I’m going to be a dad for the second time now, and balancing work life with helping out my partner and watching our little six year old. Our current challenge is - sadly :( we came down with Covid! Although we’re all vaxxed , my thoughts are to our unborn child. Is it wrong to worry? What should I be worried about? Should I take my partner to the doctor right away? Anyone else experience this ? Thank you for any guidance and advice.
Since Covid started, what’s the most memorable piece of content that you have seen? Mine has to be between Tiger King and The Circle. I never really was into reality TV but Somehow Netflix got me into it.
Any suggestions on how to make a partner who has traditionally been required to spend 30% of their time marketing and 70% billing accountable for their time and efforts spent marketing. I feel during Covid this is becoming increasingly more challenging.
I might actually work for the worst partner in BigLaw. Literally tries to crush my soul. And I’m not sure why, I always try to over deliver. I was planning on leaving for another firm but Covid happened. I feel stuck and helpless, but I’m thankful that I still have income. This isn’t a question, just a statement and cry for help.

Please visit and read this article: https://ourworldindata.org/mortality-risk-covid I routinely assign articles from this site. They’re easy to understand no matter your stats experience. The site is VERY well respected.
Ignore what side of the debate you’re on; pause to understand the math of CoVid fatalities. The article is not political. It explains how to calculate case fatality, crude mortality, and infection fatality plus how they can/can’t be used. News from all sides interchange these stats, but they mean very different things.

How do you adjust to such lower PTO balances? I have 23 days a year at deloitte, and some of these industry roles only offer 10-15 days… Do most of these roles offer a lot of sick days or something that I am missing? Or do they allow you to buy an extra week of PTO?

Is it true that whatever happens , happens for a reason. It does not seem like that to me like that at all. I had an offer from UK and could not join there because I want confident on myself and now I am regretting that each and every day.
Deloitte S&O no longer it’s own practice? What’s that mean? Will everyone be aligned to their practices still?

I find myself really yearning of my childhood and remembering the “good ole days”. It really makes me nostalgic and quite depressed for my life. I have a good job, life, relationship, but somehow I just struggle being happy and just wish life was how it was when I was younger. Does anyone get this feeling at all?
My project in Richmond just ended and I want to say goodbye to this one woman (fellow consultant, most likely) with whom I was in a small incident on the plane when she almost fainted....contd.
