Anyone can recommend a great workout plan/program that‘s doable in limited space (think: hotel room) using bodyweight and/or rubberbands? Used to do Insanity Max 30/ P90X but didnt find a version to download to my phone and it requires a bit more space. Especially now that hotel gyms are still mostly closed due to COVID-19

Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?
What are the best credit card sign up bonuses right now? I have a large purchase to make and want to maximize the expense.
Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house? Some in-house is pretty sweet (Spotify, Square space, FB) while others are blah. Is it okay to ditch agency life as a mid-level when you decide the portfolio isn’t worth it?
May be time for this hotel to clean the ac vents
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Travel in sweat pants and then try checking into your hotel...where you are told that you have no reservation for the week and they are fully booked. Happy Monday!
Anyone have experience working for Visa?

Has anyone taken the CISA while on lockdown and can speak to the virtual testing experience?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️
I have an opportunity to take over the 401k at my credit union and was thinking about getting this as it seems like it could be done pretty quickly and may pay dividends in the future.
8 weeks later and I am still testing positive for covid. But since I am symptom free for over 3 weeks I can return back to work. They say I am not contagious...i do have antibodies. But I am still nervous about spreading it.
I’ve been on the same project for a year and am ready to move on. What are your best tips for initiating a roll off conversation?
Does anyone bring up unvested RSUs during comp conversations for new roles? How much success has that had? I feel like the golden handcuffs are too strong otherwise.
Have there been lay-offs at your company due to Covid? Which roles have been more impacted? What are severance packages like? It’s been shocking to me and I’m wondering if there will be another round of lay offs this year at my company.

Stop the panic and end the total isolation, says MD & former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center. Thoughts?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
What's better: senior product manager at Amazon, or Director at a large pharma company? Long term goals are fuzzy, but would like to stick in the health-tech space Comp is about the same
Anybody have a view on comp range + breakup (base + RSUs + variable etc) for the Regional Strategy and Ops Lead role at Google in Dublin and London?
What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?
Question: what is everyone’s agency/healthcare offering for fertility treatments? What does yours cover?
Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
