If any of you ladies froze your eggs when did you do so? Do you wish you did it sooner? When do you think is the ideal age to do so? Are you more likely to get covered if you get it at a later age? It’s looking less likely to find a partner due to covid / difficulties dating in this climate so I’m beginning to look into egg freezing options. Would appreciate any advice / insight 🤗
Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!
Serious question: how do you know if you’re coming down with a regular flu or coronavirus?
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
MBAs - is recruiting being impacted by COVID-19?
Morale at my firm & group is at an all-time low (no COVID bonuses, departures en masse etc). Partners asked seniors directly to do something on Friday and they collectively (I think) decided they would not work on the weekend and passed it on to me - at least 4 seniors called me independently to check if I was “available” to deliver it to the partner on Sunday (yeah of course...), so it was very obvious that all 5 of them decided they would just ruin my weekend instead.
Does Accenture taking COVID proof isn't discriminating the folks who haven't taken vaccine for health or religious concern?

Anyone here taken covid booster shot - Side effects ? need to travel and wondering how many days of buffer I should build in
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Anyone going to grad school this fall have any luck asking/getting more scholarship/reduced tuition, given what’s going on with covid/online classes?
30F here in NYC. Been single for 1.5 years now from a 4 year relationship and frankly still not over it. Unsure if the recovery process has been so long because I haven’t really been dating during covid or if this sounds like a typical timeframe to get over an ex. Thoughts?

So I joined PwC as a first year senior and got promoted this year. I heard the firm does not pay milestone bonus to people not organically grew in the firm? Or just a hair cut? I just tried to figure out if I can offset some of my realized gains and losses due to financial clearance ...
Hearing from this bowl that Accenture Strategy pays $105k base out of undergrad, vs MBB which at most seems to be at ~100k base atm. Will there be any move from MBB to match this base? Is comp progression slower at Accenture, leading to the short term higher base to be not as appealing? Curious as to others’ thoughts!
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
Applying to MBA programs next fall with the goal of pivoting from tech finance to consulting. I’m very passionate about fitness and health and think I would love a role at a Peleton/Tonal type company as a post-consulting option or even in place of consulting. Is there a niche for ex-consultants /MBA grads in this industry. Have any current students seen OCR in this space?
Sick of corporate crap, considering going from a big company to contractor designer. Diversity experience, portfolio and less excel and meetings a day. Does anyone have anything to share on that?

I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you
