Dear Drogo5 peeps. How long did it take to produce the facebook covid work? Start to finish. And what was the budget?
Should I put off having a baby until 2022? My S/O and I have always talked about having a big family. I want to start on my mid 20s and hopefully finish having kids by my mid 30s (I want 3-4 kids). Should I wait until after COVID to start having kids? Life is unpredictable so who’s to say that after one pandemic there won’t be another. I’m hesitant to wait but scared now to start trying for a baby.
It is going to be fascinating to see how we view the fighting over school mask mandates in 20-30 years once we have more historical context and perspective. It’s so crazy to me how divisive that question has become, whether students should have to mask
How has the chicago residential real estate market been impacted by COVID? Have prices come down (what%)? Best areas to buy?
Just overheard a convo of colleagues having been to Milan last week. They shouldn't be in the office. They even talked about the Corona virus. Incubation period is up to two weeks. How to react?
Anyone planning a trip to Turkey for the holidays? Wondering if it’s worth booking it with the new Covid variant. Thanks!
The NYC health commissioner is recommending that anyone who attended Electric Zoo be tested for Covid https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/15/nyregion/electric-zoo-covid-cases-infection.html
Every time I get staffed on a new project I still look up hotels near the client site to get a sense of what the project life would be like if it weren’t for Covid.
Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
Did anyone get a COVID exposure notification on their phone today? Mine is dated for “7 days ago” so I’m confused
Not me. This is what a conservative bugle had to say. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/trumps-coronavirus-payroll-tax-cut-motivated-by-re-election-not-logic

As the post-COVID workplace is transforming the core essence of what’s most important to recruiting, retaining and developing talent (employees, consultants, hybrid type work), what are the core one or two “MVPs”- - (Most Valuable Professional-Personal) ‘essentials’ you require for your ideal career-life design blueprint?
How are people in long distance relationships coping? We used to see each other every 2 months before covid but I literally have no idea when I'll see my bf next and it bothers me more than it bothers
Has score releases happened on time with COVID?
Anyone know of outdoor/drive thru COVID testing in the city? Bonus points if it’s close to Wicker or Lincoln Park
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
Apparently more than a few of my firm's associates moved to other states during COVID and are now quitting because we are coming back to the office. The wierd thing is that my office is quickly replacing those associates with other associates that moved here (a large secondary market) during COVID and refuse to go back to their (mostly NYC-based) firms. Is this churn happening at other firms too?
During covid i basically moved home while still maintaining my apt in the city i work (MCOL thankfully but the firm kept saying oh we'll go back in person next week...every week lol). I went back Jan 21 but have ended up coming home for a week or so a month and wfh while staying w them and lately i don't want to go back when the week is over. My parents will always be down for a walk or a movie, my friends not as much. I just feel so lonely when I go back to mine
Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!
After nearly 2 years on the job, I am traveling to the client site for the first time next week to begin a 6 month assignment. What do you consider the best travel credit card? I plan to book my weekly flights, my hotel room and order all food with it. Thanks!
Hi, So i joined LTI after being offered 8 LPA for 2 years experience. A friend of mine who is joining after me and has the same experience and for the same position is getting 9.5 LPA. Can I renegotiate my salary or the ship has sailed?
Need advice on hating your sibling’s significant other. My sister is polyamorous and bisexual (not judging- just giving perspective) and I’ve never liked the people she dates- they’ve all cheated on her or been otherwise disrespectful and treated her poorly. She is 21, and is now dating a 39 year old man who lives in an off grid cabin. From what I’ve seen he is basically a 39 year child. No responsibilities, does whatever he wants. No future plans. I’m concerned but don’t want to push her away.
Please please please go back to fully remote
Moving into an ACD role and being asked to lead the team, and feel like I’m getting my first lesson in dealing with difficult creatives. I’m trying to help get a project over the finish line and the creative is extremely difficult with taking feedback. I’m trying to put myself in their shoes - the new ACD who used to be my peer is now suddenly making recommendations and providing feedback, but holy hell. Any tips?
Have any women been passed over for partnership and believe gender played a role? How did you handle it?
Single Moms. How do you do it? How much do you spend on your child, especially if you have to work long hours quite a lot?
Can someone please provide insight on PwC People & organization practice? Specifically, the HR transformation and performance group? The type of work they are winning, maturity of practice, group culture, upwards mobility, and DEI experience? Also, how does the cohort talent model work? Thinking about switching from Deloitte to this group at PwC as a SA. Thank you!!

Anyone have experience in music industry marketing? From the outside, it seems awesome to have a client who’s an artist instead of a middle-aged corporate white dude.
How to know if you’re not made for consulting? Dont see manager promotion happening as I hate people pleasing and talking. I am a huge introvert. A product manager role in tech might be better. Thots?
If I have a Delta voucher from a cancelled business flight do I have to use it for another Deloitte related flight? Or can I use it for personal travel?
