Has anyone done an overseas shoot during covid? I may have one coming up and my partner is very nervous and doesn’t want to do it. Curious how everyone feels about this and if it’s possible to do it safely.
About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management. Is it a good idea to start applying to different opportunities in case my raise/adjustment isn’t what I’m expecting at year end? Not sure how long the average job search could take...
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….
I didn’t get a hair cut during COVID and it’s now pretty long. I keep it tied back and on camera it looks like it’s still short. Frankly, I want to keep it long. No one has said anything to me as yet, have even had a few in persons with partners. It’s 2021, do we care?
Lot of negatives from Covid. Am curious to poll this crowd on what we think the long term positives will be, both for consultants and society at large. Let’s generate some positive vibes.
Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
🎁 Gift giving advice needed: Joined a small growth stage company and given the low morale because of COVID etc., the CEO wants to buy gifts for the leadership team (5-8 folks). What’s a nice gift idea that you all recommend for Directors/VPs?
This article is a good read in terms of how to handle the COVID-19 crisis: https://blog.shrm.org/blog/promoting-workplace-mental-health-in-the-age-of-covid-19
I’ve been in the same city for too long and want to move, but my agency is getting into a hybrid model. I feel like I missed the timeframe to jump cities during covid and need advice on how to navigate the conversation with my manager. Has anyone been able to do this recently without having to get a new job?
Mentally done with COVID. I’m fully vaxxed and will happily wear masks anywhere (hey saves lipsticks and sunscreen), but if we have to shut down again I’m going mad
Advice needed: I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a while. Things are generally going well but when it comes to traveling to see each other I’m always the one making more of the effort to go to him. I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?
Trump supporters - if Trump keeps not listening to experts and ignoring the science around coronavirus, at what point does it become his virus?
So, COVID is running wild, pay decreases are in full effect and you just found out one of the worst creatives in the building just got promoted! How do you react?
Struggling with the whole situation right now (Covid and a lot happening in my personal life) and generally I’m a bit more “emotional” / have a lot of empathy. Can’t help but think no one would think twice to question my personality and working style (I’m always very effective at delivering) if I were a man......
Do people have recommendations for how to keep up a healthy immune system during the COVID craziness?
So how do you feel the consulting life is impacting your wellness as you hop over the age of 40, I’m finding under Covid I’m much more healthy/lost weight etc.
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
How many of you took a break from work for more than a month? Does such breaks help? I don’t know if its covid effect on our work style or the 13-15 hour work days. I feel a complete break from internet would be amazing!!!
Is it true that kpmg doesn’t do case interviews?
Hi Is there anyone here looking to hire a Strategy consultant? I've got previous experience across public and private sector and I'm now looking for a new challenge with one of the top consulting firms in the UK. Any help would be much appreciated.
Interviewing with PWC digital risk solutions group - any pointers on what I can expect or any knowledge from people who are familiar with the DRS group. Input on company culture would also be great.
LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

In choosing an MBA concentration, should I go for finance, general management, operations, or innovation? Leaning toward the fourth while taking lots of finance classes. Goal is biz dev roles in tech and/or growing startups
What type of questions should I expect in an skills-based Product Manager interview? A senior product manager will facilitate the interview, who sits in the Accenture Interactive umbrella
Cold applied to McKinsey just for the hell of it. Got a call for a screening. Have no idea what to expect in the screen or overall interview process. Any tips/insights? (I’m now wishing I paid more attention to the MBB interview stuff in this app - I hear there’s a case? Haha 🤔)
My dad works for the state and he currently has 7 months of accrued vacation and 10 months of sick time....we’re doing it wrong guys
Is Trump the worst president in US history?
Why do big 4 people go get a top MBA and join big 3 consulting firm instead of internally move to advisory service/consulting?
To all the juniors out there lateraling for money and exit options, good for you, but you are ruining my life. I am so, so tired.
