Anyone resigned lease that had covid free months/ incentives recently? Were you able to keep some incentive or did price went back to normal?
How worried is everyone about Corona virus?
Ladies have you ever fallen for a guy over text? This guy is so hot and cold with me and we’ve never met - but have such a great time texting. It’s so confusing. He lives 4.5 hours away from me and works 6 days a week (sometimes 7). We were supposed to meet some time back and then his mom got sick and then I got covid and then he got this job... and we never met again. What do I do ? He rarely ever initiates conversations these days, but when I do message him he’s on a roll.
Can COVID be transmitted through water?
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.
Has anyone had luck finding an epidemiology expert for a covid claim? Defense side. Desperate times, desperate times ... no luck with any major search engines.
Hey folks at Accenture Strat, were you traveling every week pre-COVID? Also, what’s the expectation after the pandemic?
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.
Starting at McK (NA) next month and my training just moved from in-person to virtual - are you all seeing a decline in business travel because of covid concerns? I'd heard that a lot of teams had started to travel over the past few months
Due to COVID impact on my family, I had to take a long break (10 months) from work, went back to the home country and be with them. Since things are settled now I would like to get back to work. I have over 9 years of experience and on H1-B visa. How should I justify the gap to the recruiters? What kind of questions can I expect?
Bookies are taking bets on whether Joe Exotic will get Corona or not. The world has gone nuts and the end is near. He is also asking Trump for a pardon. https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/joe-exotic-transferred-to-prison-medical-center-from-coronavirus-i
16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
Is this normally a more expensive time of the year to fly internationally? I’m trying to book tix they’re all coming in pretty high. Maybe Coronavirus influence, fewer flights = more demand?
Anyone know where to find consistent, decent indoor pickup runs for basketball in the city? For post-covid obv, but wanted to start thinking about a gym that wouldn’t break the bank. Thanks!
I might actually work for the worst partner in BigLaw. Literally tries to crush my soul. And I’m not sure why, I always try to over deliver. I was planning on leaving for another firm but Covid happened. I feel stuck and helpless, but I’m thankful that I still have income. This isn’t a question, just a statement and cry for help.
I’m planning to ask my doctor but was curious. I’m fully vaccinated but have had COVID symptoms for two days, and tested negative this morning using BinaxNow. I have an event tomorrow. Would you still attend if you were in my shoes? Thinking of just skipping because I don’t want to expose others in case I have it.
On a meet and greet zoom with a potential client today. Junior employee and company senior partner. Junior asks if we can supply him with an animator by Friday. I respond politely that we’re not talent management, it would cost him more than hiring directly, and it would shrink our freelance pool for our other project clients. The senior partner sees the sense in this a mile off. Now the question: did the senior partner include the junior in order to get him to ask these sorts of questions?
I got married when I was 30. Now I am 34 and all of a sudden I find myself pressured to have a baby ASAP. My parents, my sisters, my friends and my husband all have been telling me that it’s late and I should start planning soon. There is another couple in my social circle who just announced their pregnancy and the rest of them already have kids. The pressure has skyrocketed and I am terribly anxious.
Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
What is the executive order mainly expected to do - stop new visa applications or stop travel into the US for existing visa holders, or both?
Oh boy, the 3% posts are starting to populate my LinkedIn feed...white dudes pledging their commitment to hiring a diverse workforce. How about you don't post, but just hire instead?
For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
I am a 1-2 year lawyer in a large law firm (BigLaw non-US/UK) and feel like I am being under-utilised in my current team/firm. I think the team is too heavily staffed at the junior level which means I’m not getting enough experience for my level. It’s also saturated with competent mid level lawyers who seem to get all the good work before it trickles down. A position has opened at a competitor firm that I am considering applying for. Looking for peoples thoughts - is now the time to leave?
Starting interview process at EY. The next step is a video interview and a game challenge at the end. Anyone has any insights on what to expect? EY
Friends of fishbowl. Need advice on two very different offers I have: - ZS Consultant: 170k base, 20k signing. Will be joining Process Excellence and Transformation under the Business Operations Group - Deloitte Manager: 155k. Will be joining Strategy & Analytics and will focus on Financial Services Money aside, which is better for career growth, culture, experiences? Note that I already have 4 years of consulting experience at another big 4 so brand recognition is not important to me
Started in-house a few weeks ago. I’ve been asked to provide Management Objectives for my role, which will be used for bonus eligibility. Can someone shed light on what goes in this? I am in IP.
Anyone here at McKinsey? I’m feeling really happy but stressed out about the interview process for an Associate role and was wondering if I can pick someone’s brain that has already been through this
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
🐟🐠friends. Theoretically POTUS is scheduled to give the State of the Union or do the Joint address to congress on Feb. 28. What do you think he is going to say? (Points for creativity)
What am I worth in terms of TC? SDE, 6 YOE, background at a startup and 2 mid-level companies, MS degree. Assuming I'm desirable enough for interviews at a handful of good places. Not based on a previous salary, just objectively.
What are peoples opinions of EY FAAS group? How’s the work? How’s the pay? How the WLB? Interviewing for a Senior position.
