PC gaming 🐟: Where is your rig? Do you have your gaming pc in the same room/desk as your work station? My new home has enough room for a den and an office. I'm trying to decide if I want my work desk in the same room as my gaming pc. Thoughts?
Need couples therapy recommendations. SO and I just got through a serious rough patch. He was unemployed, and I had undiagnosed depression for the first half of 2021. Now we need help with communication. There’s a sea of therapists and counselors out there so welcome any and all recos!
Saw somebody at LGA that look just screamed deloitte analyst. I wanted to say something but couldn't think what. wasn't until now that I remembered the code word
Friend of a friend just died of covid (delta). Not vaccinated. Please be careful out there everyone. I wish this was over but it’s not.
When is an appropriate time to cut off your availability for client calls? On travel days I make myself available from 8am-10pm and fridays 8-5. Weekends as needed. Is this too strict?
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
Looking for a new work bag (or backpack) for my boyfriend — he is a consultant but doesn’t travel. He is quite low key and doesn’t want anything flashy or brandy, but it would be great to get an upgrade because his current bag is breaking down. Something in the $80-200 range would be ideal. Does anyone have recommendations for high quality brands in that range?

Now that covids ending I realized how much of life there is to enjoy and how badly I want to travel, but with stuff going back in person it’s just making me sad that it might be back to desk life. I kind of like just being able to work from the road whenever I choose or just randomly pick up and go across country for a week or two. I love my job and the company but travel bug is real. Any suggestions
Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
For those of you planning an early retirement through FIRE, what comes after? Relax and travel or a second, more fulfilling career? I just hit some major milestones I set for myself after undergrad and am working to set a new list of goals. I’ve always wanted to “retire” by 40, but curious to see what others have planned once they reach their $$$ goal.
Jr Art Directors or AD interns, my agency is hiring a partner to work with me. Shoot me a PM with your book and I can give you more details.
Has anyone here left their job over return-to-work/WFH policies? Anyone thinking about doing it?
Anyone heard of “honour killing” stories outside of movies from people you know IRL? This concept just seems so unreal to me. How does a parent kill their kid? Or do they not view them as their kid? Is there a history of dehumanisation happening before it gets to this point?
Does anyone have insight into WeWork or have experience working there? Talking with one of their teams right now. Certainly hesitant due to all the issues over past year plus the fact that COVID is hitting real estate but seems like it could be an opportunity to get in before they go public. Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated!
Poll - Have companies started travel to client sites? Which companies? I know Deloitte team members are traveling. Also, I see a new trend based on interactions with a few people. Most prefer remote
Hi Guys, I had an interview last week and today I got mail from HR saying "Congratulations you have been shortlisted" and asking documents like salary slips and all in continuation to my candidature. Does that mean everything is done from interview prospectus ?
What factors effect the market value of a position? (Shout out to Glassdoor's KYW tool for the insights on how severely underpaid I am)
I have only had male mentors and I really wish I had a female role model to look up to in this field. Any advice for how to network and find a good female mentor? Im up for promotion to manager this year and I want to leave the firm after. I don’t know where to start and I lack the confidence and network needed to change careers. Any useful advice? Thank you!!
HELP ASAP pls!! I negotiated an offer as I’ll be moving out and saving money living at home but she told me she’d get back to me on the number. I think what I asked for was reasonable with the moving and all but what if she says no. I still really want this job even if it’s the lower salary. It seems many people just say no bc they think they’re worth more but I just want to take this job I hate my current one.
The dogsitter just texted to say the dog ran past her into the lobby and now they are both locked out of the apartment. I’m on a flight from LAX, 3.5 hrs to go. Just felt you all should know.
Any insights into expected salary range for a Sales Consultant (L9) in Boston at Accenture ?
A senior manager sent out an email to all of PwC about not being promoted. Blamed being black and not being born in the USA for it. However promotion is never guaranteed and becomes increasingly difficult the higher you go. Yet everyone wants to talk about race and inequality because this person was black. Seriously tired of the gymnastics people do to somehow relate it to color, instead of other factors.
Adopt dog or buy from breeder? NYC, in apartment, first time owner but SO wants me to adopt no shop,money isn’t an issue (have setup a little doggy trust fund over past 5 years)
Hello Ladies! I’ve had a strong desire these past few years to switch from the Aerospace and Defense industry over to consulting. I have finally entered the market to search for a new role, and I had a question about benefits. As a newlywed, I would like to start a family soon and wonder which consulting organizations offered great benefits in terms of maternity leave and health coverage?
