My MOH is probably not going to be able to attend my wedding bc of covid restrictions. Freaking out slightly because I don't have someone close enough to replace her / I don't know how viable her zooming in would be? Any advice / tips?
No masks and social distancing? I will continue to take precautions even though am vaccinated.
4 months of unemployment due to being let go early COVID and not being able to find a job killed my 25k savings account. Goal is 50k now. Lesson learned that 4 months of savings is not enough. What have you guys learned from COVID?
If the Dems come out and say Biden has COVID the week of the debate and needs to “quarantine”, it’s going to be one the most predictably embarrassing moments in modern political history. America doesn’t need a coward as President.
Headed to a T2 this summer for my MBA internship. Thinking of rerecruiting for MBB in the fall. Anyone know how recruiting might look this year post-COVID? Thanks in advance!!
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
Are any young healthy people considering going out and getting COVID on purpose? Most antibody studies are showing the disease is far more prevalent than we realized and therefore a much lower...
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
Who else is spending more time/resources on fitness and skincare so you come out better looking than you did pre-COVID? Are you seeing intended results?
Folks on H-1B, do you really need to be in your home office (or within commutable distance during COVID) 1 day per week? How strictly is this enforced, if at all? Thank you!
Any ideas that people have on how to network/break into circles of tech startups? Long story short, joined a tech Fortune 500 company a little over a year ago as an entry level analyst and things have gone downhill with COVID (limited growth here but got exposure). Looking to start new with a startup as I grew tired of the ethics of a larger corp. I have no network as it stands in tech startups, don't come from a target school (although I graduated with honors) and at a loss of where to start.
Covid Vaccine Booster? Has anyone gotten the booster yet? (Moderna and J&J just got approved in our state) I got Moderna six months ago and wondering where everyone’s head is at?
Do you feel like the COVID19 and the 2020 recession hurts a lot more than it did in 2008 (especially since we haven't reached the worst yet)?
Did many firms give raises during covid or have firm addressed upcoming raises/bonuses that may have been forgone? Trying to get a general consensus
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
Honest opinion on the COVID vaccine mandates? No judgement on my part; just want to know the heartbeat of the community?
Doing broad “business transformation” consulting in the Federal government, thinking about the next move after becoming mgr. How high can comp get for Federal? & what are realistic exit opportunities?
Got an offer from my current client that’s around 20% lower than I was expecting. How should I go about negotiating without pissing them off in case I don’t sign due to comp mismatch?
Just read the sad news of the death of 1st AD John Nolan. (See wheresspot for thread) While I hope be didn't contract Covid on either of the 2 sets mentioned prior to his illness and death, if it comes back that he did, we need to have a long hard chat about what went wrong. Condolences to his family. Truly horrible news.
Advice sought: I currently work in corporate banking and have been offered a senior consultant role in finance strategy and performance at KPMG (c. $120k Australian); coming from banking I have zero consulting experience what would you say is the largest learning curve for someone new to consulting? Is this salary considered at market? I largest concern for the role were long hours however the partner reassured me that 12-13hr days are not the norm in Western Australia, suggestion on accuracy?
Is it weird that I’m thinking of leaving for industry, and one of the things in the back of my mind is the downside of coming up just short of Marriott Lifetime Platinum?
I haven’t taken any vacation (other than one day here and there) all year. I’m taking two weeks off at the end of November and just told a partner and he was shocked (presumably at the length). Is this a faux pas?
FB who just hit / renewed SPG Platinum. What are your thoughts on the Platinum gift this year? Options are 1 free night, 5 nights towards next level, 10 suite nights, Audi rental, gift gold status,etc
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Will rerecruiting for MBB (and essentially restarting/grinding case prep and such) when I have a T2 pretty locked in just be indulging an unhealthy obsession with prestige? Struggling with whether or not it’s objectively worth it, as someone who has fallen into “prestige traps” in the past.
Please provide feedback. URGENT. Assistant Manager KPMG (KGS). Vs Senior Associate Wells Fargo Role - Enterprise Testing in both. ctc - Same
What do you all think: Best small healthcare companies? Specifically on the payer side? Under 50 employees? Thx!
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
How open are you to telling co-workers you're thinking of leaving the firm? Do you wait till you have an offer at hand or once you start interviewing? Does your relationship with the person determine how early you tell them?
Ridiculous offers from competing agencies I'm in the Data and Analytics side of the house, but I know this is affecting everyone. Other agencies poaching analysts, managers, ADs, for what are 2 level up salary promotions. This cannot be sustainable (kids with 1 yr experience, pushing 100k+) What is the future of agency salaries going to be? Are we really going to right size all our paychecks or is this a bubble that will lead to underqualified senior levels being the norm?
