Does VP or SVP really mean anything in Talent or Business Affairs? Does it actually bump salary up significantly or does it just mean a free parking space that no one is using since we’re WFH? Genuinely curious as I see some people with VP or SVP that have less experience than many with just a Sr title.
Thoughts? I prefer WFH flexibility because I can skip the commute and work out during the day, but I worry that there are people who straight up don't ever want to see a coworker again and this take confirms that attitude exists. I miss free drinks and appetizers after work.
hello! I wanted to share my resource that will help students transition back into the classroom after remote learning!
What is your typical schedule like? Are companies outside the tech world more flexible with remote work or are you going in regularly?
Looking to save on all taxes as my remote career grows. Any recommendations or where to move / establishment residency? I don't see the advantages of being in California.
Hi there! Looking for recommendations for things to do/see/eat in Gatlinburg, TN. I’ll be there for about a week (working remote for 4 hours in the morning M-Th and Friday and weekend off). We love to eat, hike, sight see, etc. I’m a huge adrenaline junkie as well. Also any dog friendly things to do would be super helpful. Thanks in advance!!
How is the travel situation for everyone here? I’ve been WFH for over a year now, no end in sight!
Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.
Something I’ve struggled with throughout WFH is feeling so distracted by every other thing around me and in my life that needs to be taken care of. I feel like when I was at the office I was mainly focused on work and now my mind wanders in a million directions. Does anyone relate and/or have tips to compartmentalize and stay focused? Love the flexibility of wfh but it’s truly been a nightmare for me in terms of productivity.
Agree or Disagree? Remote teaching = more parental involvement. If you agree, do you think this is for the best, or are they getting TOO involved?
Any good suggestions for work from home music? I find Lofi works well during the day in the background. Any suggestions welcome!
If you’re worried about your students because they were online all year please check out my resource. I was a first grade teacher last year online and a doctorate student. I could tell the kids would need some SEL to transition back! Filled with guiding questions and a sequencing activity. Very helpful to teach empathy to those students who were not online as well 💕. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n9jcRsJ8NGc&feature=youtu.be. https://www.amazon.com/Follow-Distance-Learning-Agnieszka-Petlik/dp/1637103956/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=follow+me+to+distance+learning&qid=1628036547&sprefix=follow+me+to+distance&sr=8-3. https://cea.org/simsbury-teacher-writes-book-to-help-students-understand-experience-of-remote-learning/
Hello! I wanted to share my resource to help students transition back to school after remote learning!
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
Deloitte ARAS vs. EY FAAS. Does anyone think there's any real difference between the two? It mind of seems like Deloitte's ARAS may involve more technical accounting (vs. like just prepping financial statements, ensuring compliance, etc.), but it's kind of hard to tell. I guess this may be more office specific (dependent on projects each office gets) than anything else? Also, does anyone know if Deloitte or EY expects people to be back in office most of the time anytime soon? Would prefer WFH..
Anyone in here work in ERPA’s Wokrday practice? What’s the culture like? Any opportunities for professional development? Any active initiatives that keep a remote workforce engaged? Do y’all have fun??😂
The pains of being on remote projects for 5 months: my fat ass can't fit into my dress pants anymore
Tore my calf muscle this weekend. My first reaction (other than "fuck this hurts") was "WFH this week!" Think it's time for a new job, maybe?
How long before a firm pushes out a burnt out senior associate? Has anyone been in that position? How long? Was the firm direct or was it subtle? Am a corporate associate so may have a tiny bit of leeway in this hot market but not by much
Hi All, I have an offer from Deloitte M&A Restructuring, A&M PEPI MAS and PwC PEVC. Any thoughts on pros and cons of both. (Not a humble brag but thankful everyone is hiring so much!)

Canceling CSR my NY friends?
What partners actually have project work right now? Certified in ABS, US payroll, and HCM trying to roll off this call center project that I've now been planted on until april.
I just needed to post this where people could relate. I’m 6 weeks along, constantly exhausted, and feeling a low level of queasiness all day. I’ve lost motivation to solve the most basic problems (like convincing my toddler she needs shoes to go outside) let alone run my project and lead proposals. I’m sure it’ll get better in the second trimester, but right now I spend the day counting down the minutes until bedtime. Any tips for survival are welcome!

Pre-MBA strategy 🐠, I’m wondering what kind of salary ranges you have seen when moving to a strategy role in a startup or industry? Trying to evaluate an offer I received and I have no benchmarks
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
EY is hiring lawyers. DM for job description.
Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on. Luckily enough (not sure If this is good timing) when I reached out to them a few weeks ago and confirmed the time for us to connect, a job in their area opened up a few days later. I’m super keen on trying to push my application and ask about the role (already applied but without a referral :() How would you approach the conversation? I’m a little intimidated since it’s at a hot tech company and they’re MBB.
If a L1 visa is rejected in one consulate, is it possible to apply in another consulate in a different country?
Is mid-June too early for a small birthday party (3 or 4 friends) for my teenager? We are in MN and socially distant groups of 10 or less are "allowed" technically. My poor kid is so lonely.
Lock downs coming back?
Quick Q for y’all. Im having trouble finding cases that match the level of difficulty that I experienced in my BCG interview. Anyone know of a good repository for MBB level cases ?
