United Airlines is cutting 30% of it's workforce by October 1st.
Apologies if this was already posted.
Got laid off due to COVID. Pretty distressed and worried. I rarely ask for help but would appreciate referrals for Consulting roles at MBB/Tier2 or Strategy/PM at big tech. Promise to pay it forward.
I've worked as a management consultant for 5 years. Have experience in high tech, health care, retail, auto among others. Love leading & working across cross functional teams. MBA.
Happy to send my resume over.
Thank you very much 🙏
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing.
*Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
If I kissed someone who was confirmed to have coronavirus on the day they came down with a fever, is it even possible I wouldn’t have it? (Grown-up kisses)
What's better if I want to work in tech / product strategy (idk something like that) in the future: an entry-level role in a boutique consultant firm or a ~2YOE ops role in a FAANG? Have a year of experience from a boutique strategy house but was laid off due to COVID.
Has anyone successfully ended a 2-year lease early? I got an amazing COVID rate but have been thinking moving in with my bf -- I was hoping to somehow get my lease shortened to 1 year.
Just got Covid again for the second time. Anyone else get Covid more than once? can't smell and on day 6:( I got Johnson Johnson of April 2021.
Serious question: which firms *actually* have good WLB and low travel (post-COVID)? MBB & B4 are out, I assume.
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
Thoughts on the Bill Michael resignation email we got? I’ve heard the same commentary and worse from my bosses about covid being ‘fake’ or ‘ over exaggerated’ and have been told by my bosses to expect working longer hours without hanging time to eat — but it seems it doesn’t matter unless unless there’s an article written about it that the media puts out.... one thing to enforce our values on only those getting caught in the spotlight for it.
Regrets post: what stock did you sell in the beginning of COVID and regret it now?
Mine: Bought FTCH at $9.64 in Nov 2019 cause the company is amazing at what they do, sold at $10 in March 2020, cause the market was going down and I thought people would stop buying luxury clothing, today’s price: $54.76
Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise
I’ve been working on my book a lot in case I need to go through a Covid-related job hunt soon (and because my old one was god awful). Would love feedback if anyone has the time!

Is this legal?
My partner and I are moving out of our condo building in NYC at month end, and the building management (not our landlord) has communicated to us that, on top of the 1K non-refundable fee and 1K security deposit to move out (stated in lease), they are also issuing a $1,250 "sanitization fee" for the public areas (hallways/elevators), since we happen to be moving out during COVID19. We feel this is taking advantage of tenants during this time and may not be legal. Any advice helps!
Anyone know if it’s possible to take the NYS real estate exam at home because of covid? Went online to register for an in person exam but couldn’t find any locations near me that had open seats :/
I want to ask for a week off this summer for a local family trip. Any tips to bring it up in light of hours being down with covid? For context, I haven’t used any vacation days this year.
What do you all think of high dose vitamin C as a potential preventive therapy for COVID?

This case may have major implications for free speech and how private schools can punish their students who don’t follow “ethics standards” off campus, from vocalizing religious disbelief to how they dress at a party. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-considers-whether-students-can-be-punished-comments-outside-n1265355

If you purchased the CFE study package (study guide, manual, app, online materials) in 2021 can you request the exam in 2022 or do you have to repurchase the package to take the exam? Thanks!!
Hi everyone! New young consultant here. My best friend (and potential future roommate after grad) is in a completely different industry and doesn’t have her full time position secured yet. I decided to graduate early and start work in April, and am therefore leaving campus early to move to the city I’m working. When I told her this, she reacted extremely poorly, making me feel guilty for ruining her semester and now isn’t speaking to me. Is this a red flag for the future, or am I at fault? Ty!!!
New group of young realtors started working in our office. Any tips for bridging the age gap?
Women, what are your thoughts on being partnered with another woman versus a man? Do you feel it makes a difference in the accounts or the projects you’re considered for?

My dog is 12.9 years old. She is very tired. I’m just trying to keep it together and be prepared if anything happens at home. I called the vet today to ask some hard questions as I realize my husband won’t want to deal with it. Please keep my senior corgi in your thoughts.

What have you seen in restrictiveness of non-competes? Do these look back 12 or 24 months? Do they rule out clients or whole jurisdictions and for how long? How enforceable are they in reality?
Yes. 25 years in. Leaving to do something different than will allow me a more fulfilling life.
Absolutely. It’s the catalyst for my mid life crisis. You’re not the only one.

Really enjoying spending time with my family rather than always in different cities and wanting to create real value to people, rather than talking about things
As someone who has been on both sides, seen the clouds from both up and down (start up 10 yrs >industry exec 7 yrs >consulting 3yrs and counting), here is my perspective. If all you have done is consulting, definitely try something else... it will open your mind and you may discover a more effective way of building wealth. I see so much potential in my fellow partners to be Fortune 100 execs or business owners. If it doesn’t work out, you can always boomerang with a better network and new found appreciation for your current job.
Same with me. 25 years in with 14 as partner. i am close to full retirement but this situation has confirmed decision to leave my firm early at 58. i would do it at 56 if i could financially. Plan to do something related to coaching and counseling ...
Given broader market conditions, I think the smart move is to ride this out first. Not sure how the job market is looking. Any ideas ?
So what is everyone thinking of doing? Move to industry? Follow a passion (e.g. start a nonprofit)? Become a Home Depot greeter? I love the time spent with my young family but do wonder if I'll miss the dynamic client interactions and even the travel.
Buy and hold. Long term rental cash flow.
If I have to go back to traveling weekly, then I’m out. The time spent at home has made me reassess choices.
I have a bit different view here. I moved from a ACN Strategy two years back to a smaller and niche consulting firm since I wanted some strategy operationalizing experience. However I now have a FOMO as I feel this is truly a consultant’s opportunity to be a part of building back better for our clients. As consultant, esp in digital space, we all complained how the client’s culture / readiness / acceptancd were coming in the way of success- which changed overnight!
that was more raw than I expected.
Only question is whether the job market in 2021 will be any better than it is now. Right now, seems gloomy
I think this is pushing me back into retirement. I came out to take a real challenging build-the-business role. If Covid is going to stop or slow real face time with clients, then I'm just not interested. As a 60 year old with lung issues, even the vaccine might not be enough to make me (and my wife) feel safe traveling.
I have enough money to go back into retirement, so that may be a differentiator for us. But I suspect many of us actually have enough.
Thinking through downsizing has been interesting. Originally my wife and thought we wanted a 2 bedroom in town and a house in the mountain. We sold the big house, got the condo, then the kids were sent home from University.
Going to pick up a house quickly in the burbs just to get space.
If anything, Covid situation is making me want to stay MORE in consulting. With young kids at home, the driver of me thinking about leaving is travel demands. The new world is looking like a lot less travel.
I am with MD1. I have never had better work life balance. Steady set of clients and two years worth of backlog being delivered successfully by a great team who also loves delivering virtually.
Only issue is impact to partner earnings that we are all facing.
No. I think a lot of people don’t appreciate the grind and sacrifice of setting up your own business, or do some kind of ‘hobby job’. I have a very good work life balance (compared to a lot of partners), I don’t travel that much, most of my clients are local and I’m very flexible in my work approach to suit my family. I’d love to be a involved in sports or have a little farm, or own a business, but I’m realistic to know if I want a great retirement (as early as possible) then I need to stick at it.
Set retirement date for age 54! Life’s too short, getting out while we can travel!
I did it a few years ago to become an independent and now my primary job has nothing to do with consulting but I still do some as a side hustle. I love having multiple streams of income but working for yourself can be a grind like you’ve never felt.
Nice ! Sounds like a good set up
