So I just got to my 3rd round interview, now meeting with whole accounting team individually through Zoom, is this a good sign and is there anything I need to be aware of?
Has anyone heard when our govt clients will have their offices fully open and expect people back in-person? I know some are opened at limited capacity (personally, I’m in full support of working remote where possible) but just curious.
Currently making 180 TC at a large bank and have an offer from a FAANG for 260 TC. Salary is not much different (165) but bonus/equity structure is decent. fully remote, dope company etc. I’ll be moving laterally in terms of title but I get the impression the scope/impact is larger and leveling is different in tech… no brainer?
My hardly working co worker has fallen asleep leaving me to pick up her slack… 😾 worst part is she is too cute to be angry at… 👿
Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.
WFH/Remote Covid Poll
4 month old refuses bottles completely at daycare. I'd rather not reverse cycle, since sleep is already so precious. Has anyone had success arranging full time WFH while figuring feeding out?
Ethics question. Law firm is based out of NY. I am a NY barred attorney who would like to live about 1000 miles away as most of my work is completely remote. My practice is mostly federal agency work. Never appearing in court. Do I have any UPOL issues?
Best WFH setups for a small space? I have a studio apartment and work fully remote. Looking for something attractive and space conscious- but needs to be comfortable/ergonomic enough to get me through busy season. Looking for a comfy chair that is good for my back and not an eyesore as well.
Hasn’t been discussed in a while, but for those who are higher up the chain or heard things, what are your groups thinking as far as return to office vs WFH?
I’ve been struggling with depression/anxiety. I was a decent performer at work before WFH. Now I can barely get anything done and the quality has gone down significantly. I don’t know how to fix this
Should I go to Booz Allen as an “Associate” for about 50% more pay? I’m a SA at 70k.. Worst part is that I must move 3 hours away and must be on client site at all times, while KPMG is super flexible and I wfh all the time even before Covid. Also, I feel like “branding” wise it might be a downgrade. What is the KPMG equivalent to Associate at Booz? What is the typical YoE for Booz Associates? Any Booz/ex-Booz folks on here to help give direction?
Moving to NYC for work and looking for places. Deciding whether I should live with random roommates or shell out an extra couple hundred a month on a studio/1BR. With COVID getting worse and winter coming, I see it both ways: I may appreciate having other people to live/interact with but I also appreciate a space completely to myself where I'm completely comfortable considering I may have to spend a lot of time at home (I will be WFH most days). Anyone have a perspective? Has covid changed it?
I have received job offer from Worley. I wanted to know the work culture, company easy if working , hike and vp policies, wfh and other factors. Can anyone let me know something about this company.
Planning to quarantine w my SO in a cabin for a bit, but it doesn’t have internet and they want to charge us an obscene amount to install it. Does anyone have any portable internet solutions that can handle zoom calls, etc?
Anyone else experiencing texting fatigue during the pandemic? I love my friends, but after a full day on zoom calls the last thing I want to do is talk or text about the minutiae of everyday life. I feel like once a week or every couple of days is a happy medium for me. I know my friends mean well and they’re great, but the constant texting is wearing me out! Curious if other people feel this way?
Any advice on dealing with “work from home”? Aside from execution/writing/production time...isn’t it important to be working together anymore? I like the energy & brainstorming. Makes things better.
Since WFH is in place, To any of you holding an advance monthly season pass, pls check T&C if you can get a refund/consider cancelling it for April, May 2020 etc.
Bf and I are commuter LDR, so only see each other on weekends. He never stays more than a day because he’s an introvert and “needs his me-time”. He went over to WFH from his friend’s cabin on Tuesday, and is planning on staying the weekend rather than visiting me. I want him to have his fun, but I’m irritated.
TO THE STRATEGISTS crafting your next big brief: how about we do something else besides “Inspiring You to be the Best You, Also Passion.” Maybe show your client the FIFTY other companies doing that exact strategy, and tell them not everything can be inspiring. Toyota for instance—not inspiring. Yogurt—not inspiring. How about we not inspire any “passions” or build any “worlds around you” for a while—give it a rest, maybe THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE and see how it goes?
Any McKinsey folks willing to make a referral? Saw an opening for a HC specialist consultant role that I would be perfect for. 7+ HC consulting YoE
Hey folks were hiring PMs (and other positions) in a bunch of locales right now. Happy to chat 1 on 1 and provide reference if you’re a good fit!
Currently interviewing at a direct competitor at the pre partner level. Does anyone have experience dealing with non competes after making a move like this? Is it an issue or just hot air?
In South Philly, good spots to go out in the city? extra points for dives with groovy tunes
Should I go home? Nyc > ATL. Much more worried about spreading something accidentally than anything else at this point, parents are saying if I Clorox everything and Uber to empty airport I’ll be ok..
Passed over for a promotion a third time, even after doing everything, and more, you’re supposed to? It’s time to GTFO
3 years of PLM Windchill exp, and Supply chain engg coursework during MS. Recently laid off. Available immediately. Asking for referrals. Will be happy to talk more about my skill set. Thank you.
Vent post: any women in their mid/late twenties feeling so tired and aimless? Or have you felt that way before and made it out alive? I’m about to get promoted, in the middle of applying to grad school, and feel more lost than ever. I don’t know what I want to do in life at all, and have no time to even properly think about it.
For those of you who are interviewing with MBB and trying to transition from B4/ACN, are you currently in strategy roles at your respective firms?
There’s at least 3 dead flies lying around my hotel room, and 3 more flying around. Big flies, not fruit flies...I changed rooms. Is this worth asking for points?
Mini poll - Best firm among Tier 2: (also would be lovely to know why) 💜 - GT ❤️ - BDO 💚 - RSM
I am the partner leading our local office lgbt group. What should I be doing to engage more with our people during this time? Zoom once a month only goes so far I think but I have run out of other ideas.
I just came back last week from a wonderful two week holiday and I feel completely burnt out. I was doing fine before I left but now I just can’t stomach the work and the travel. Will it get better?
Be careful who you screw over in your current job... because you never know when you might cross paths with them again.... case in point: I went client side after having a HORRIBLE experience at
What is the best way to ask my boss about my trajectory towards a promotion? I did mediocre work last year and decent work this year. Hoping to kill it ASAP and get more responsibilities. MUCH THANKS
Can I buy flowers at EWR terminal C ?
