Anyone go off Mirena and just feel weird? I have been off for a week or so now and just feel off. Wondering if that is normal or if it’s just a side effect from covid exasperated with thinking that it could be a side effect from going off mirena..
You know what’s been fun as a L&E attorney during this pandemic? Having clients and partners take their frustration out on you when, as here in CA, mask mandates and other COVID requirements change.
Follow the science! Just don’t ask where it comes from, if it was peer reviewed, or if it applies to vaccines in the United States. https://www.statnews.com/2021/07/27/cdc-recommend-masks-indoors-even-for-those-vaccinated-against-covid-19/
Hi All, what are the roles/responsibilities of level 8 at Accenture? YoE: 8 yrs Is the job security bad as I've heard or was it just for the covid period? If the performance is alright, one wouldn't face issues, is it?
Just recently, we exceeded 1 million covid deaths on record globally. When the pandemic started, did anyone actually believe that the situation would become this bad?
Who is responsible for putting out all these "Welcome back America" ads? Is every media department unaware or ignorant to the country setting new records for new single-day increases in COVID cases?? Am I going insane???
How do consultant-consultant couples make it through especially with respect to communication and giving each other time? I know it’s hard to find time. Would love to hear about your experiences as long-distancing during Covid-19, and being able to support each other even through shit schedules and long work hours. Thanks!
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
Secretly find COVID19 to be a good lesson for someone just starting their career- taught me to save up for a rainy day, cherish everything in life and stop taking “normal” things for granted 🙏
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
I’ve been in the same city for too long and want to move, but my agency is getting into a hybrid model. I feel like I missed the timeframe to jump cities during covid and need advice on how to navigate the conversation with my manager. Has anyone been able to do this recently without having to get a new job?
Trump and his whole team are about to survive COVID (including Chris Christie) and we need the country locked down? C'mon man!
So how do you feel the consulting life is impacting your wellness as you hop over the age of 40, I’m finding under Covid I’m much more healthy/lost weight etc.
Do you or your work team or clients speak candidly about COVID cases and/or vaccinations close to you in terms of how it affects work or family life day to day? We don’t really, feels like elephant in room, people will say stuff like “i haven’t been feeling well for a week or two” but nobody asks have you been tested. And last week a colleague told me she is unvaccinated and about to fly abroad with her partner on a vacation I had to bite my tongue. Is this the norm?
What are companies doing to support working parents during Covid? Am particularly interested in what consulting firms are doing.
I Have more sparetime now (Thanks Covid!) and I wanted to invest it in data skills related courses. I found one on data camp called "Data Skills for Business" and then was planning to continue with their "data analyst with Python" career track. What do you think of those two courses? Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻
Looking at some condos/townhouses in Gold Coast/Old Town area. Love the neighborhood, but also have to consider elementary schools in the next few years. How is Manierre, the neighborhood school, so bad? I feel like I'll be forced to send my kid to a magnet/private school or live elsewhere.
I noticed today that my utilization on ToD plunged even though I continue to be staffed? Anyone experience the same?
Got extremely good reviews for this past LEAD cycle but question if I’m going to hit utilization goals for this fiscal year. Is this a problem or an issue that will affect me?
Ugh this thread in the MBA bowl has me so annoyed. Wharton became the first top business school to admit more women than men…. I’m sure it won’t shock you what the men have to say about it 🙄 https://joinfishbowl.com/post_44bsc81emi
Potentially looking to make the switch from Audit to FDD at another B4 in LA. Currently an S1 early promo with almost 2 years of experience making $88K. What should I expect as far as comp goes and what do you think I could negotiate since the demand is so high?
For road test at DMV, do they verify the registration of the vehicle or just our insurance?
Does this move make sense? Now: C, will be promoted to SC next year Move to MBB after promotion as a post-MBA level role Move back to D as an M This is assuming I don't get promoted at MBB...
Parent partners - how do you get help for your children while being able to take care of your business? Au pairs? Nannys? Family? Wife is pregnant with our first and trying to formulate a support plan so I don't fall too far behind professionally...

Trying to switch job, currently in tech consulting at big 4 under H1B. Is it easier to get H1B transfer approved for roles that don’t have people management responsibilities? I thought I heard that somewhere
Bonus: - 7% Recent CPI reports: 6-7% inflation I directly sourced and did 80% of the legwork to get the partners a $26mm new account (where we had previously been fired in 2020) with a potential $9mm contract extension in 1Q21. Time to lateral back to financial advisory. Happy Thursday!
I received a welcome offer for Amex platinum of 150K membership rewards points in the mail today, a week or two past signing up for the card for the card with a 100K welcome bonus. Is it possible to contact them and get the offer upgraded retroactively? Does anyone have experience with this?
Hey fish! Have a question on work authorization. If I have an H1B and wife’s on the dependent EAD (after I-140) and I go out of country to work with same company. Does her EAD still continue to be valid? Or does it invalidate the moment the primary visa holder is out of the US.
What’s leading practice salary negotiation when doing a lateral across Big 4 firms? Sr Manager level.
Delta: “Let’s show our customers we appreciate them by extending status another year” United: “Let’s show our customers we appreciate them by having a guy hold up a sign that says so” 🙄 https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-thank-you-sign/ United Airlines
If they decide to go back to "remote" or "hybrid" model this school year, I am legit gonna loose it!
