So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
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! 🙏🏻
I now know 3 people that have died from Covid-19 hear in the US. Everyone, please take this extremely serious and stay home! People are dying and the rates aren’t looking any better.
F U Covid. You couldn’t even wait until the winter before harassing us again. I want the FULL hot male summer, not a shortened summer

Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Any thoughts/insights on how the travel aspect would play out in PwC's Salesforce practice in the post COVID world? Will they want us to be on the road 4 days a week or it will be much more hybrid? If it's the latter, how much % of travel should someone working at PwC's Salesforce practice expect?
Word for word, this is exactly how I feel about where we are. https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/07/against-the-covid-extremists/
I’ve been tasked with finding a good gift to give an entire team to celebrate a milestone in the project - hoping to crowdsource some ideas. Budget is ~75 dollars per person. Can’t imagine people want a virtual happy hour or something that requires a time commitment. What are some good gifts you’ve seen/received?

How does margin interest impact taxes? Can the margin interest expense be used to offset capital gains or dividends? This year was the first time I used margin so curious about the tax impact
Currently on a project that has nothing to do with me. I understand developing a new skill set but I have no past experience that aligns with the scope and deliverables of the project. I've spoken with the PM and they say I'm still the best fit. I think it's just due to the firm being understaffed. Time to talk to my direct to get off that project? Thoughts?
A while ago there was ppt by a harvard grad going around outlining personal finance tips and tricks (banks, cards, points, etc) - was super helpful! Does anyone have a link or copy to share? I don't know what I did with it
Hi everyone. I am having a rough time with morale at my company. The issues can be traced back directly to senior leadership, and I have rolled up the feedback and issues time and time again. I am no longer sure what to tell employees who come to me for help. We just launched an engagement survey (my last ditch effort to get senior leaders to LISTEN). Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?

Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?

Hi Fishes! All help appreciated I received an offer from my dream co. - McKinsey. Have another discussion with HR for comp. & joining details, once I accept the offer. I want to join after 4 months (2m of notice period at Deloitte & 2m I want for personal self). How do I take that up? How much deferral of joining is normal? Suggest some reasons (something that sounds genuine | Honestly want to sit home for 2 months and relax, but not sure if HR will accept it) Share experiences if anyone?
Verbal offer for 30k+ base increase and bonus potential to be a 80k+ total comp increase and I don't have to work at Deloitte any more. Happy Independence Day, indeed.

I’m coming back to my former job after 6 months and leaving my current position in one of the most toxic places I have ever been. Never thought I could be harassed in so many ways in such short period. Gladly, I left the door and they’re taking me back. Even though it’s a huge relief, I’m worried about how to explain to my coworkers why I’m back. I’m way too vulnerable to lay out the truth. Anyone here to give me a useful tip on how to handle this?
Switched birth controls due to change of insurance. I get so bloated the week before my period now. Like I used to get a little bloated before, but this is INTENSE. Any recommendations? TIA
Interviewing with an agency in NYC, but I’ve never worked in that market, so I’d love some guidance. Nearly 5 years experience. Working at an accomplished place right now. Have several awards. What should be the LOWEST number I accept in a negotiation? This isn’t a big holding company shop, so I’m trying to prepare what realistically could be the lowest I go.
I am sure this question might have been asked trillion times before, but what is the typical selection rate during virtual on-site interviews?
Who else drank their per diem dinner today 🙋
I was told by a mentor to do some interviews every year to make sure my interview muscles don’t go away and confirm my market value, even if I’m not looking to leave. Good advice?
just got an offer for a SC role at deloitte. it's a great offer and would be 20% bump from what I'm making now at KPMG. however, I'm up for promo to M now. would you jump ship for the extra $ or stay, get the M title, and be paid the same (I'm assuming getting promoted would also be a 20% bump too)?
Would you consider a role working for the CFO even if it was considered back office and didn't pay great? I feel like the exposure for a few years might be worth it. Thoughts?
