Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
Creative ideas on saying goodbye to great client needed: Hi folks. Ive been working for the last year with an enormously nice client (VP) and we have a super great working relationship.

If my office location is Seattle but I have been living in Texas during coronavirus WFH period for rest of the year, can I contact payroll to avoid paying any Seattle based taxes(no state tax but they have some smaller ones)? Or can I claim a refund end of the year when I file taxes? My home address on ADP pay stubs is Texas based. Tried to look for older posts with answers but couldn't find them.
Indian citizen, live in Middle East , didn’t visit India in recent past , fully vaccinated , I learnt that I cannot enter USA on L1 due to covid restrictions . Anyone else in same boat?

Friends, I was laid off due to Covid. Eligible for rehire and am a new analyst, would love to chat with any ACN 🐠 for some insight on where to apply! My background is in competitor research, PMO, deck building. I’m very personable and hard working!

My landlord just raised my rent by 12% (20% from my covid deal "net effective"). It's not a rent stabilized building so no options there. I love, love my apartment. But the expense feels like a lot. (It will be 45% of my working budget - meaning after tax, 401k, ESPP, etc.) Any advice on negotiating? (Im unfortunately in nyu zone so this building has lots of turnover with apts funded by mom and dad).

Is it just my perception or is USCIS totally jammed and ignoring any processing times, service requests,... I have hard time to believe that Covid is the reason.
What should I wear for an interview to lateral into big law as a woman? My current practice is very casual and I rarely dress even in business casual clothes. Go for bright colored blouse with suit jacket and pants? Skirt a must? Stay classic with black and white? Heels or flat shoes? Do I need to do my nails? Hair curled/put back? Not sure how much this all matters beyond generally dressing up.
I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
What should I expect from an internal interview? It’ll be with another manager I’ve worked with, my current director, and a sr. director. I have good relationships with all of them.Move is for (cont)

What's your acceptable raise % with rating 1/2/3? (Please don't troll on this thread...) looking for realistic expectation.
I need some support and smiles...I’m being laid off for May. I know everyone’s going through this, it’s just I was in this same position last year...it just feels like I can’t catch a break. 😔
Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?

Anyone interview for strat roles at Better? Any advice on the case? Better Mortgage Corp.

I don’t suppose anyone has any opinions of health agencies in London? Quick scan through this bowl suggest not, but the health bowl is basically all NY.
What would the salary for a Manager 2 in audit, financial services be in the Big 4 in the Bay Area/ NYC ? Hoping to get some numbers before the raises are finalized !! Thanks
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
Has a recruiter ever reached out to schedule a call after your final interview? What does this mean?
SF gets a lot of slack for homelessness, dirtiness, cost of living, etc. But is it really that bad? Every city has its sore spots. I find that the good of SF outweighs the bad. What about you guys?
