Is zika still a concern in Mexico and the Caribbean? Anyone travel there with a pregnant significant other recently?
Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
Any Deloitte 🐠 looking for a project? Need a BA or C with very strong excel modeling and Tableau skills for an immediate opportunity. Would love to staff within the family.
My husband wants to name our son after his brother who he loves a lot .i am so pissed that he yelled at me when I am 6 months pregnant and unable to do anything , will be the one going through labor just to have my son my BILs name as first name , my husbands name as middle name and last name of his family. FYI- me and BIL live in different countries and I have spoken to him handful of times over phone and that’s it . He doesn’t want to discuss any other names anymore.
Pregnant and in first trim with severe nausea. Was put on a team that is super understaffed and have hard deadlines like every week as the client is going through diff transactions. Partner says I can log off whenever I need but Sr manage keeps pushing work to my plate and asking why work is not finished. How could I deal with the situation? Should I just tell partner I need to roll off the team?
What other interesting bowls are you guys in?
How to handle anxiety from Covid?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
Looks like my united status match is not gonna be completed by the time. Is there anyway to rebate? I am 4 segments short for gold and wonder if I can talk my way out
I have multiple client projects. One client talks a lot and keeps going over slotted meeting times. I am frustrated because I can’t find a good way to cut the client off and move to my next meeting. I even tried extending time with him. This client thinks his problems are the most important and doesn’t understand the concept that I’m across multiple engagements. I’m sick of being late all of the time and having to apologize to my other teams. What do you guys do when this happens?
If you were on the bench for a while with nothing on your plate, would you volunteer for an RFP in your practice but in an area you have zero interest in? RFP is for an ERP implementation
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
