Can I be fired for refusing to travel right now? Don’t want to due to covid risk. Raised this concern but was told I might just have to anyways. Can they fire me if I just don’t go? I’ve said very clearly I will not go, and don’t think they’re going to accept that answer.
Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
I have the opportunity to travel a few places domestically this fall back-to-back, but still have a lot of anxiety about the Delta variant despite being vaccinated … what to do? I have FOMO and have been dying to get back to traveling but now that it’s here, I’m hesitating
Flying out of a Delta hub city (MSP) for the first time. I guess my platinum status means nothing in a hub city based on being 55 on the upgrade list. Oh well!
Hi! Does your agency have rules about Slack or how to interact with folks on Slack? Asking because of this piece about how Slack was/is used at Away: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/12/5/20995453/away-luggage-ceo-steph-korey-toxic-work-environment-travel-inclusion
I think i have fucked up my 5 year old relationship. Recently I met a female friend of mine who was supposed to meet her current boyfriend at a fancy ass hotel coz they were meeting after long. But he couldn't make it coz he got sick last moment. So she called me 12 in the night that she wanted company and I foolishly went ahead to give her some "company". A few hours into the night we both couldn't control our mind and while sleeping we started cuddling. *More below*
Is it me or is Virgin America getting a little bit more ratchet..flight attendant was meowing during the service announcement and the pilot kept giggling while he was announcing we were going to land.
Sometimes... I see the delta app in my sleep
Still in bed in the hotel and haven’t even started getting ready, because I know tonight is going to be a hella late night.... 😞
Sometimes travel is not easy like it should be. I had a $1200 credit (b class flight from Paris to NY) from American Airlines that I was told was good for any trip. After 30+ hours between call backs and different desks, they tell me because the trip originated in euros I can only apply it in the US. Fine, but then after another hour on hold, I hear that it can only be redeemed in person at a ticket counter in Paris. I live in NY. Was never told of these stipulations before. Never again AA
What is the new compensation (base + bonus range for United States) for McKinsey BA2 and McK 3rd years? Thinking of taking an interview… McKinsey & Company
Don't hate me but seeing all the airport drama on Monday mornings makes me feel a little better about how I earn substantially less but don't have to travel in federal consulting.
This life feels like a mess! Wish I had that someone special to just talk to. Love life is non existent, family is too far off, thanks to our lawyers I can’t leave the country or travel (contd)
Hi Guys, I am a new member on this platform. I'm looking for a role change and wish to work in the consulting space (strategy/management/supply chain/business). I have 5 years of experience in the textile industry. I've had the opportunity to work on the manufacturing and sourcing side managing supply chain for international clients. I'm currently providing freelance consulting services on project basis. Any of your referrals to job openings at consulting firms would really help. Thanks
Anyone have experience moving from Big 4 consulting to a smaller, “local model” consulting firm? Goal being to scale back on travel but still work on interesting projects/clients.
Does anyone know any jobs in the Texas area for IT support? I am an entry level professional and I have a clearance. Also, have Azure certification. But it is hard to find a job in Texas that’s paying worth while.
So with Deloitte investigating "no travel" talent models, it's time to jump ship! Is this being replicated elsewhere? Other Big4 intending to resume a travel model?
Looking for baby moon recommendations for early March. Obviously Covid is an issue, but hoping it’ll be better by then (at least this omicron wave may be over) somewhere warm, and not too far of a flight from DC area, tho if it’s affordable we are willing to fly. Trying to stay in the states since pregnant. Any reccs? I’ll be about 20 weeks pregnant. I know it’s early but it’s the only time we’ll be able to take before the baby comes.

Bonus number? Anyone?
First time in a really long time that there's no line for TSA PreCheck. Guess the other road warriors are on vacation.
Ever since the pay-scale and bonus increases, has your firm pressured you to bill more? On at least 3 separate occasions, firm leadership has mentioned billing 2400-2600 and even said billing 2000 is not hard to do (even though we’re still in a pandemic). I can bill over 2k, but I find it strange that this is their messaging almost as if they can’t afford to keep up.
Got offer to a small boutique firm <75 ppl. 19% raise, free healthcare and in a LCOL city. Currently in DC @ Big 4. Concerned about overall career trajectory by moving to small city and no name firm.
I’m a new manager and am trying to get off a client. Need guidance if I should do it. I work with a very nice senior manager who is up for partner. She gave me a very decent review. The client is horrible though. Piecemeal review comments, constant updates workpapers and last minute changes. The only good thing is working with this senior manager. She is also my counselor. I asked her to get off of this account, and she said the firm probably won’t allow it. I have another senior manager I work

I am in the process of transferring internally to EYP, but received an offer from a small/boutique financial consulting firm with a 30% bump in base comp (and a significant bonus at year end). I was never planning on staying in consulting for longer than a couple more years, but how much is the brand at EYP going to benefit me in the future vs a relatively unknown (but reputable) firm focusing on a niche market? I am extremely conflicted.
