What are big firms like MBB / Big 4 doing to keep employees (especially junior level) engaged and motivated during COVID? In your opinion, is it working?
Unexpected side effect of thorough Marie Kondo-ing my closet: online shopping is no longer enjoyable. My wallet thanks me but I need a new hobby to entertain me during my coronavirus self- isolation
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
2 years out of undergrad and planning to apply next year. I had a great relationship with an SM and decent with a partner, but since starting remote work due to COVID I have had virtually no face time with leadership bc of the size of my team and my responsibilities. Mostly just venting but ugh how do I get LORs!!
Has anyone broken up with someone over a difference in COVID boundaries? If so, how did you know it was a deal breaker? I’m considering ending my relationship because my partner is too strict (i.e. doesn’t really leave the house for much).
How should I spend my two weeks block leave during this COVID? Does anyone travel overseas?
When NY was the epicenter for COVID-19 the rest of America shunned us and gave drivers a hard time in other states if our license plate was from NY. Now that NY actually flattened/reduced the curve, while the other states are a bumbling mess, can our governor Cuomo set a ban on all travelers coming in from other states? I would suggest a 14 day quarantine on all folks from outer states and a 30 day one for those from hot spot disaster states.
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
Back in office and want to lose the covid weight (not much, but I am petite so just feel uncomfortable with the added pounds). Mentioned it to colleagues. Colleague who is in good shape (male) told me a few days ago he could do a program for me, and found a gym close to where we both live for us to go to, Is it weird to go with him? I probably shouldn’t think this but somewhere in my head I am thinking.... do I want to be in gym gear around this guy? Haha
First there were small groups of humans in caves, then communities formed, then kingdoms, then empires, then countries. Leave aside the impact to globalization due to covid, the future might be contd.
Matched with a guy in another city and we really want to each other but can’t due to COVID. We sexted for a bit, any methods/ tips from those of you in long distance relationships on how to keep that last and how to keep the spark alive? What can you indulge in while being far away from each other
It’s been a hot minute. Thai Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin Sauce (Keto). My pre-covid work clothes are now loose on me. I’ll have to buy a new work wardrobe wherever that may be. I quit my job and am back in school. Goodbye tax, goodbye busy seasons, goodbye billable hours.. 😁
What would you do, if anything? A coworker with confirmed COVID19 results (asymptomatic, only lost sense of smell) refuses to wear a mask and continues to go out, even sends her toddler to daycare.
Seeing Mckinsey winning alot of COVID related work, makes me wonder which pandemic has Mckinsey had the biggest net impact on, Covid or Opiod crisis?

What's a very memorable or engaging networking event you attended? What made it so great (could be something from pre covid times too or from the present new norm if virtual)!
Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?
How is everyone with COVID-19 symptoms feeling today? I’m in week 3 and still fatigued and coughing, smell is back!

For big 4 M and above.

Bitcoin wallets will be reportable in the future but that is also not in effect yet. We have not received information on when these changes will be taking place. For the short term, you do not need to worry about reporting them."

Urgent: Wanted to understand key differences between EY India and EY GDS. I know generic differences but which is better along the lines of: 1. Financial growth opportunities (hikes/bonus) 2. Duration to stay in the same role (example would I have to stick to same client for multiple years or when can I switch client) 3. Senior Management 4. WLB 5. Is it easier to move from India to GDS or vice versa? Getting Tech Consultant Senior 1 in GDS vs Data Science Senior in EY India. 5YOE/Data Science
Another senior associate just emailed the client to tell him that the PDF the client sent him had two pages that were out of order. He asked the client to RESCAN AND RESEND IT. Like he's never used Adobe in his life? I have no words.

Strategy folks - how do you get good at … strategy? Recently started at a startup in a role where I’m the only person under the head of our product team who handles the strategy-focus of the company. He wants me to take more ownership from him and I want to crush it but have no relevant experience here and am still fairly junior. Any books or classes? Or is it just trial by fire.
Just signed an offer with a mid-tier coming from B4. About to put in my 2 weeks, but will they ask me to leave immediately because I’m headed to another public accounting firm?
