I feel burnt out and it’s only been four months since I started.. ik, ik, it’s pathetic. But I’ve been feeling physically sick and mentally exhausted ever since busy season ended, and it only seems to
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
It makes me sick as a man when I see people with power, authority bully and harass others. It's time to stand up and fight these abusers.
I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
Everyone in NYC is sick 😷
All creatives are lazy and hide under the notion that “it’s okay we’re creative and that’s just how we work.” Step up. Be professional. Hit your deadlines. Work collaboratively. I’m so sick of the whining about planners, clients, budgets. Do your job. You want to go paint then go paint.
“Dropping sick beats they call me DJ Nanna” makes me laugh every time I see that commercial
We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)
How hard is it to transition from medical device (e.g., neuromodulation) to pharma/biotech?
Has anyone taken short term disability leave for a mental breakdown? I’m like 5 minutes from a breakdown and I just want to know what my options. I have a psychiatrist, do I need her to tell work I need treatment?
Are sick days a thing anymore, or is it just working from home to not fall behind when you can't physically go to work? Asking from my bed.
Can you switch firms while on short term disability? Can you resign right after the disability leave and join other firm?
Curious as to what the views on canibas (medical & recreational use) are in the finance industry. From what I've seen, it's a stigma compared to alcohol, but maybe it just appears that way?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
Does anyone get anxious every few days that they're getting sick ...? I'll be fine for a couple days, then have a day where I'm second guessing every throat tickle or sniff. It's aggivating.
Any agencies with good parental leave policies? Or are most through short-term disability or only partial pay?
Few years back.. I quit Accenture India without serving notice period stating medical reasons and joined another firm. ACN folks continued my employment for another 2 months before giving my (cont)
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
I know it’s petty of me but I am so jealous of my 8 month old relationship with his grandma! It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong but I wish that he loved me the same way or atleast had similar reaction towards me as well. It’s especially hard because I am FTM, sleep deprived, hormonal and hating my job because it is taking me away from my kid! I try to prioritize (trust me I really really try) but between pumping, managing household and ill health…
Need some advice.. thoughts on SetSail.
If you are a woman and a 1st gen American with siblings (IDGAF what culture) you will feel this in your chest.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Considering switching jobs - looking for a non-consulting role in the DC area that pays ~120K. Currently a manager with several years of operational improvement experience in the Heathcare space. Any
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?

Are there any Salesforce opportunities at Microsoft? None of the job openings actually mention Sf skills as primary requirement. Currently sf consultant at Deloitte. Considering applying to program manager 2. Anyone here made this transition?
Taking a 5 day deloitte PMP bootcamp soon. Should I study before the bootcamp or will it be enough to pass?
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
Been recruiting for months for what I consider dream roles. Bar level always kept high, but no luck. When did you guys settle? Lower the ball on job prospects or keep chugging in consulting until you finally can get a dream role?
Sacramento Big 4 folks: What is your office culture like? Which is the best Big 4 in town in terms of market power?
I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.
To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
I’m so BEYOND burnt out. The client work in my industry has not slowed at all yet they laid off a bunch of people. This is worse than busy season 😡 but as they say “this will be a growth opportunity”
What are some signs to help evaluate the actual WLB at a company? Seems harder now that everything is remote
When your partner leaves early to "drive down to his other client" 3 hours away, but you heard him telling someone on the phone earlier that he was driving down in the morning...
My flight left on time! Joy! Haha just kidding we have to land because we forgot to empty the lavatories. American Airlines why do you hate us all so much?
