Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
Good news for those who are in recruitment phase in PERM process and were paused due to offices closed. DOL no longer requires physical job notice in offices if they are closed due to covid...now job notice can be posted electronically and recruitment can wrap up.
When do people start traveling with a baby and what kind of places are preferable. Planning for post covid times if it ever happens.
If you're teaching right now do you have a second job or did you? Most of the teachers I work with do. Trying to find something that I can do from home or after school to bring in some extra money, I've taken time off because of covid and I'm struggling to make ends meet this month with the holidays. Any advice would be great
How would you tell your senior and partner that you’re probably not gonna make it to finish a task due to medical illness (i.e., covid symptoms)? I’m worried they would not take it seriously and still expect me to turn in deliverables (which btw don’t have an specific due date).
So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?
Celebrating a zoom birthday tonight with some brown-drink friends. Second-to-last friend to have a COVID birthday. Can’t wait until we can celebrate in person again with some really special bottles to make up for lost time.
I currently not doing great in my current organization. I have 5+ years of experience. My package is 5 lpa. I lost my both my parents in 2021 due to COVID. My condition is very bad financially & emotionally. Requesting all fishes to please help me with some referrals if there's any vacancies. Thanks in advance.

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!
Thoughts on REITs? Their values are still deflated compared to pre COVID levels, and interest levels are still at zero... if a REIT in question has a good balance sheet, what do you 🐟 think?
Kläder på jobbet.
Jag blev anställd under covid och har inte behövt köpa en enda kostym ännu. Skulle uppskatta lite råd kring detta ämne, märken, färg och sånt?
Typ marinblå eller grå Oscar Jacobsson / Tiger / Boss?

Those who got dogs during covid in the city, which walking services will you use? Our guy has only walked with us and we want him to learn before we have to go back to the office. Doorman building downtown Manhattan if that makes a difference
Now with a plan for things getting back to normal it would be a good time to address an elephant in the BigLaw Bowl. Who here has been laid off due to Covid or just during Covid? I admit I have.
I have been in my position for 27 years and have never seen such a state of affairs as I have this year (but then, with the pandemic, who has, right?) Well, long story short, we've gone hybrid (some in person, some online). The teacher has been out with surgeries and covid. I have been teaching both groups at the same time. Sometimes a sub for help, sometimes not. I love the kids, but really?

Delta cancelled my flight. Rebooked me automatically on a flight for the following day (24 hours later). How do I get compensated by points or vouchers? The booking was for a party of 4.
I lateraled from a small firm (30 attorneys) to a midsized firm (200 attorneys) in July as a third year corporate/M&A associate. I like the firm but I’m constantly getting biglaw recruiting emails and it has me wondering whether I should think about lateraling again in the future from midlaw to biglaw. When would be the ideal time given that I’ve only just lateraled?
Day rates suggestion for Strategic Design (design research) and Innovation Consulting freelance type of work. West coast, greater Los Angelos, 10 years of experience. Think: 1) workshops with the client’s customers designing and defining future scenarios. 2) taking up the human-centered design part of their product. Q1) The potential client is a small start up, therefore I wonder if I should adjust the day rate as they are in their starting phase. Q2) bigger workshops, higher rates? Thanks!

Hi. I am a senior L6 / early L7 at Amazon. Have prior consulting experience. What level should I aim for at Doordash?
My two years is coming up at my current company and I was curious what salary other system/automation/controls engineers are making in Northeast ohio. This is my first engineering job so I will have 2 years of experience at the time of my review. I’ve heard my raise will get me just shy of $80,000 but I have a feeling other companies pay better
Does anybody know what senior managers actually do? I’m a manager on all of my engagements and aside from complaining about things taking time, status meetings 3x a week and not reviewing I’m lost.
Hey YC bowl, need my weekly talk down from going to law school. Inevitably facing yet another week of mostly enjoying what I do while somewhat tolerating certain aspects of consulting. Not totally unfulfilled not totally unhappy. Decent WLB. Just cannot shake this law school bug. Haven’t been able to for years. Sort of encroaching a point where I’m not sure I’m even headed in my career in terms of developing hard transferable skills. For example, I feel like I don’t have an actual vocation. Lol

Here’s a question for people with insight into the vaccine trial/approval/distribution process (assume there have to be some of you on here): assuming things go as well as they can for the Pfizer vaccine from here on out (ie it gets interim approval by the end of the year, no unexpected hiccups in subsequent trials, etc), when do you think we’d actually see people being vaccinated on a mass scale? Spring 2021?

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

That's the story of every single zombie movie. The zombies themselves can be overcome (eventually). It's the few human bad apples who are going to steal your groups only car and all your gas, supplies, ammo, etc, kill the person guarding those things and knock down the fence while driving away to save themselves.

Maybe we are the virus 😰
Most of the deaths that occurred on this planet are because of human behavior than of any virus or diseases or natural disasters
Gotta love humanity... NOT!!! Lol
