CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary. Limited travel will still exist and maybe more at senior levels. Regional/local travel will be the norm. Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
Do travel insurances like Atlas cover coronavirus ? My MIL was visiting us when this thing kicked up and her flight back is cancelled and insurance is till 31. Wondering if i should...
Anyone heard anything about Alara Union Station? Google reviews aren’t great but it seems like a really nice building with awesome amenities
Would appreciate thoughts on when to pay of student loans. Have about 40k left @ 4.5% (refinanced twice). I should be able to pay them off in one lump sum in a few months with personal savings. I’m currently paying the minimum, while saving aggressively in HYSA account , contributing to 401k to employer match, and contributing to Roth IRA. Does it make sense to just knock them out or should I increase investments focus? I know there’s likely not a “right” answer but what would you do?
Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
When do the layoffs start?
Best hotel in MSP (for work travel)
Anyone using remote marketing consultants for social media seminar promotions or creating online content?
Does your School Board have a policy on Therapy Dogs in the classroom? If so, can you tell me what it is?
Is EY going to announce layoffs next week?
Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.
New to consulting. What is utilization exactly and how does it impact your development, path within firm etc? Give examples? Thank you :)
Anyone else stuck at DFW flying United?
Lesson learned: when in APAC do not ask your client to take you to their favorite restaurant. Wound up eating "turtle sex organ soup" and century eggs last night.
Has anyone ever used the SkyBaby for flying? What are your thoughts? Me and the 6mo old will be flying solo cross country. It’s not our first rodeo, but the last one (when he was 4mo) was pretty miserable. I had the boba wrap on the way there and it was just way too hot and confining. The baby bjorn on the way back was better but he still got pretty squirmy so I ended up taking him out and holding him for 4 hours. And tickets are way too expensive for his own seat.
