Our nanny is taking vacation soon and my mom is watching our 2 kids. A friend’s nanny offered to drive our oldest to/from preschool and watch her over lunch so that my mom isn’t racing around (cont)
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
How can you tactfully push a client lead to encourage change from a direct report of theirs? I have a great relationship with the lead and the report, but the report is dragging on business processes
Anyone know how product managers are positioned at Apple? I haven’t heard too much about PMs there compared to at other FAANG. Is it “true” product management, agile, or more like project managers?

Found out today the slide master we use from the client was from the previous BCG team (we are implementation). Looked at the doc owner and the original doc owner from years back was McKinsey!
Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
If you have 10 days PTO left, can you just serve your last 2 weeks on PTO if you give two weeks notice? Or would you have to take the PTO after your two weeks notice?

First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise). Am I right in assuming that it’s just converting a Word doc or PDF doc into an SEC-specific format? Any recs on service providers?

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Took a freelance writing gig with a big agency, went through several rounds of work. Now, getting radio silence from the producer as they are “waiting on client feedback”. (Cont’d)

One of my employees is the only one in the firm who knows how to use a critical piece of outdated software. I overheard them speaking about accepting a job interview. Should I get them to train another employee?

Regular person goes broke in the pandemic: 4-hour food bank lines and eviction. Company goes bankrupt in the pandemic: employees get laid off and the CEO gets a seven-figure bonus (that's not hyperbole - here's a partial list of companies that have done just that):
Was told I’d only have one round (4 interviews), each split 50/50 on case/behavioral. This is for an Associate position and will be interviewing with AP/P/SP level. Is this typical? Since I see most people have multiple rounds.

Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Feeling like consulting isn’t the best career for me b/c of the lifestyle and I met someone who I hate being apart from every wk. But I always wanted to reduce gender gap, so I feel conflicted/guilty.
S2 right now. Planning to leave in spring 2023 and get MBA. If I still perform above average/well up until I leave for school - Could I push to get promoted to manager with the intention of leaving right after?

Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
Do not go to the domestic terminal in ATL. TSA has made it a complete cluster fuck. Precheck line is past the restaurants in the atrium.
Moms specifically at Deloitte, I am 8 weeks pregnant and planning to tell the team right after July 4th weekend. I had a question on the administrative/procedural stuff - do I have to let anyone else outside or project team know? When do I have to start thinking about paper work? Who should I let know about the maternity leave?
