McKinsey & Company McKinsey & Company - upcoming new joiner here. I got my equipment shipment and included was an iPhone 13. I really don’t want to carry around 2 phones though. Is it necessary that I activate it?

Relatively new joiner (1+0 experienced hire) — fwiw, I loathed the idea of 2 phones when I started, but the work-life separation has been great (especially on weekends) and altogether avoiding risk concerns has, too (especially with our recently expanded retention policy)

Genuinely curious question: why do so many international students want to get MBAs in the US... it’s hard for them to get work here, with Trump it’s hard to even get and stay here, so what’s the appeal?

Ladies,
Do you usually pump directly into the storage bags? (I love the idea much more than bottle pumping because of the associated dish washing time)
If you do, which storage bag brand worked best and what adapters did you use-currently have the Lansinoh storage bags (they seem like the cheapest option) but reviews say they do fall off sometimes when they get closer to full.
P.S: I have the Spectra S1 and the medela freestyle flex pumps. Any recommendations or tips from experience?!

So as much as I embrace the tenets of socialism, I have to admit: I'm not a part of a union. I don't know of any programmer's union and I don't know where to start if I want to organize in my own company.

If anyone has any pointers, I'd love some guidance. Also guidance in convincing my coworkers to organize, which might be a hard sell because most of us are pretty happy with our working conditions and pay as far as I can tell.
