What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
I have a virtual interview tomorrow through Teams - 1) what is appropriate to wear for a video interview? Should I treat it as an in person and wear a blazer? 2) I’ve used teams plenty on my work computer but never on my personal computer/through my personal email - any ideas on how to make sure it works? And 3) just any advice/tips in general, first interview since college!
I've had several awesome interviews with Deloitte (2 partners, 2 directors). My practitioner interview has been rescheduled 3 times, and today they were supposed to call me. WTF, Deloitte??
Are short term gains, quarterly business reports, and the push for constant profits creating a culture in which companies no longer invest in employees for the long term? Cheaper and fast over better?
Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
I don’t get the whole prestige thing. It seems like everyone is so caught up in it. Even at the most prestigious big 4 firm (Deloitte) people still seem concerned about it on this app.
Does anyone have a work culture that prioritizes WLB? Sometimes I feel like it's all talk for branding.
How many YOE do you think someone should have to be in a senior consultant position? I’ve seen so much variety across firms.
I currently am trying to take two days off, got a mediation statement from OC, naturally I had to read it, and then I emailed the partner offering to do any follow up on the statement tomorrow.

Housing market is pretty good; I'd like to buy a place but wonder if it's ill advised since I haven't paid off all my student debt yet and there are rumblings about an impending recession
I have an interview with Guidehouse and I’m reviewing the benefits package. Could anyone share their thoughts on medical benefits and what to negotiate for. Coming in as a Managing Consultant in DC area. Thanks!
I’m shocked by how broken and frustrating the AWS recruiting process for tech positions is. Seems like complete disconnect between the recruiting coordinators and the folks who actually interview. Maybe I just happened to get the most incompetent set of recruiting coordinators but the expectations set and instructions given for each interview were inaccurate plus the interviewer seemed to be reading from a script the entire time. Holy f*ck. What kind of brainless robots are they looking for?
Does anyone have a way to help me learn and better understand gender issues? ( a good youtube video to watch- a PD link, anything. ).
