I blasted someone on Facebook. For posting the same dumb memes about covid19. Honestly, when we have so many new yorkers dying, it’s getting old.

How Safe Is Flying in the Age of Coronavirus? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-19/how-safe-is-flying-in-the-age-of-coronavirus-quicktake
I don't want to get vaccinated. I have debilitating anxiety, asthma, severe allergies to everything under the sun and afraid of a reaction. I have recently recovered from Covid too. I hate how ostracized society friends work everything is making me feel about this decision, which I know is only an inevitability at this point because my family is overseas and I can't not see them for the rest of my life. Anyone else in the same boat as me? PS. If ur here to bash on me keep it moving.
Reminder to the visitors in this bowl: you are that, a visitor. Respect the space or leave. This app is toxic enough without you bringing that coronavirus bowl energy in here. Thank you.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
Does anyone maybbbbbe think that this new “spike” in corona virus cases could be possibly caused by these massive riots in every major city? Not saying the riots are bad or wrong, but let’s not kid ourselves and say these aren’t a contributing factor. So when people are surprised at the USAs rising rates, I mean come on...
My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
Is anyone in general just disappointed with the state of the world with covid? I feel like we’re sorta back to square one and I’ll never get the work travel perks again
Having a hard time emotionally...project started pre-covid and I was told it will be about identifying process improvement opps within supply chain. Then ends up becoming this whole headcount reduction initiative! I feel so sad 😕 this is not why I joined this practice. Idk how do I cope? Please don’t say things like grow thicker skin, it’s our job.
Due to COVID, Deloitte in Australia just announced 20% pay cuts, still working 5 days a week, and no promotions till January 2021. What would you do, what’s the options?
Do people need to get stimulus checks is their job was not impacted by covid and they continue to be employed?
I'm on dat Covid-20 shieeet
Curious to hear thoughts and stories about growing within a firm when you’re in a niche area. I am in a specialty area which although unique will never be as large as many other practices. I enjoy what I do but I don’t see doing it for the rest of my career. How do you pivot into a “bigger” or different role? Would love to hear about your experiences.
Currently in IR and want to move to a better work life balance role....maybe engineering. Do engineers get paid more than responders/analyst? Looking to get the AWS SAA and maybe try to squeeze my way into a cloud sec role since i have about a year of AWS exp.
Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?
Interviewed for a job late 2018. Accepted another offer. A day later, the first job reached out and I told them. Lost job for going to HR over a verbally abusive boss. Is it weird to reach back out...
I’m completely burnt out from work and I’m considering taking a break until the end of the year or so. The challenge I’m having is this deep rooted anxiety of having a “gap” on my resume. Is that something that’s still a red flag to hiring managers or am I overthinking it? If you’ve done this, I’d be so curious to hear your thoughts! I know I’m in a privileged position to be able to consider this, I’ve found this bowl to be so supportive and helpful so any thoughts are welcome 🙏

For smaller firms without published policies, how do you figure out in an interview what would be their attitudes toward LGBT employees? Aside from legal protection.
Me and my wife moved to US in the last few years and recently had a baby. Both of us work in relatively stressful jobs. I am having conflicts with her on how to raise kids - my wife and mil don’t see daycare or nanny as viable options, and want to rely on grandparents from both sides to help with the same. They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family. Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.
What's everyone's thoughts on job hopping? How frequent is too frequent? Are there any benefits to frequent hopping?
Are there some things or types of work you all did at your firm that might help with MBA admissions? Beyond the actual “work”? Thanks!
That time you had to book a flight last min, get the middle seat in row 25... and then end up deplaning from the back 💯 May this travel week be equally blessed!
Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
Do any of the top consulting firms have analytics roles (preferably not super technical) that don’t require weekly travel?
