Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
I created an comms consulting/marketing agency focused 100% on using advertising to combat COVID misinformation that is costing lives: we’re called The Auxiliary and you can check us out at resistcovid.com. I’m reaching out because we’re running (our second) hackathon against the infodemic- this time centered around finding creative ways to keep Georgians informed about COVID amidst misinformation and mistrust and an early relaxation of social distancing.

ZS measures for its employees during CoVID times are really impressive. Affection for ZS is all-time high right now <3 They truly value people
I’m all for the whole movement and COVID-19 climate, but I’m tired of my social media being mainly about that. I wanna see bikini pics damnit
Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/

The truth about how covid started
Seeing Mckinsey winning alot of COVID related work, makes me wonder which pandemic has Mckinsey had the biggest net impact on, Covid or Opiod crisis?
Laid off due to COVID from Accenture with generalist analyst experience, want to get back into consulting once the market improves.

COVID positivity rate is lower than 3% today for the first time since last March.. Dare I say that we are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel?
I work in a small office (10 people, not with Mazars) and there is talk requiring everyone to be Covid vaccinated in order to return to the office, i.e. to continue working at this firm. Thoughts?
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
What’s the fastest way to get a COVID-19 test result? Urgent care places say 2 days for RTPCR results. Someone suggested going directly to a hospital for a same day result but on calling them, hospitals are saying tests only for in- patients who are going for surgery etc.Appreciate any help 🙏
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA

Not work related but idk where to ask this. We’ve been invited to our first post Covid cookout. It’s at my husband’s former colleagues place so we don’t the hosts too well but we know there are not going to be any kids so mostly a grown up football party. What would bring to it? Because of the current scenario I’m skeptical of bringing my home cooked dip.
https://joinfishbowl.com/post_0um71i A lot of debate here and we’ve gotten a lot of “ranges.” Anybody have actual insight on the avg/median comp Principal/MD/Partner or how the comp model actually translates to numbers?

My wife, who’s in India, got an H4 with an annotation “NIE under all PPS on novel coronavirus”. Does this mean she can fly to the US today if she wants? We didn’t really ask for it and assumed she would have to quarantine in another country for 2 weeks. I’ve been in the US since before the ban on India was put in place.
