What should be a salary range of mid-weight art director in Canada? I live in Toronto...work for agency for 4 years. Last raise I got was 2 years ago. Covid made our agency go on a wage freeze...and I am overdue for performance review. Wondering if I should approach my boss for salary talk...or jump ship?
Farmers protesting to ban 5G, ban COVID vaccines, asking to stop wearing masks, no lockdown, stop COVID tests. TBH didn't know so much about agriculture
What does low util mean? 10 % below target, 5%, 0.1%? I'm under my target util because I hit the bench right before covid. Worried since it's a promo year and about layoffs in general. Any insight?

The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
When you feel the sickness creeping in, what can you do to prevent it from getting worse. Currently keep clearing my throat, but so far doesn’t hurt yet. Any advice? Don’t think it’s COVID, could just be a common cold. After all, it is the season for it.
Any doctors here? Hoping to interpret whether this LabCorp test means I had COVID (suspected late December) or just am reflecting recent mRNA booster (late November)

Housemate has covid. Any tips on dealing with this? Haven’t experienced symptoms myself and don’t directly interact with them.
Black tie wedding planned for fall ‘21. Two questions for you classy folk: 1) I only have 1 real (non apple) watch 2020 JLC Master Control - but it is silver with light brown band (I always wear brown dress shoes). Is it too uncouth to wear it with black shoes / black tux? What about a navy tux (still prob have to do black shoes tho). 2) As you guys climb the latter, are there really ever occasions (COVID notwithstanding) where a tux is warranted? Debating buy vs. rent. Thanks!!
I was never a perfume person, but recently decided I want to be. We don’t go anywhere notable with COVID around, so I just wear it around the house in my lounge outfits (aka uniform of the past two years). Still perks me up though! I’m curious 🐠, what are your go-to scents?? I’m obsessed with Prada Candy Night.
How often do you guys see your parents normally in non-covid times? Do you feel it’s too little much or wish you could see them more? In my 20s I used to see them every other month but as I’ve “settled down” in my 30s it’s been harder with distance and spouse so it’s down to once a quarter. Feel quite guilty and sad about it
I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?
Half the district’s student population is out either with Covid, or quarantine. Frustration ensues.
Weird how the people who claim to believe in making government smaller have no problem with unfettered Federal interference in issues that fall under State jurisdiction (threatening States over their COVID and protest response) or a political party trying to force their interests into private businesses by threatening to repeal protections https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/live/2020/10/28/technology/tech-hearing.amp.html

Planning a trip to Glacier this summer and would like to visit Banff while that way. I see Canada has random testing for even fully vaccinated travelers. Has anyone crossed the border from US to Canada during COVID? Would I likely run into issues? For context I am a US citizen and fully vaccinated.

Hey all, I have an interview for an Enterprise Sales Director role at a fintech company next week and wondering if there is a) a good resource for learning about fintech quickly b) any questions you’d ask about the role in particular? Thanks in advance for any help!
Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.

Just got hired, a week in. Hearing rumblings about “restructuring” and “realigning” of my team. I’m super nervous. Usually those words mean downsizing / layoffs. Is this concerning? ☹️
Across all levels at Big4, how does salary compare between Australia and Canada? I've got 3.5 YOE at Deloitte (internal transfer into consulting, expecting ~$80 - $85 at Consultant). Considering a move next year. Looking specifically at Melbourne, but interested in any information. Is there also an appreciable difference in WLB from your experience? Thanks!
I hope most of us can agree on the below as fellow Americans: -Any group wanting to cause harm to people or a specific group of people have no place in our country. -Clearly our country is hurting and needs productive dialogue at the community, state, and national level from both sides. -One side is never right. MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN are also rarely right. -We’re in dire need of empathy and care for one another regardless of political views, race, geographic location, gender, etc.
Los Angeles folks who are not allowed to WFH, given the recent “safer at home” order, is anyone going into the office tomorrow?
Is it just me or do I feel that brand-level consulting (e.g., product strategy) is more interesting, on balance, than management consulting? But it seems like the market rates for these kind of projects are lower than MC projects. Does MBB play in this product strategy space, or is it mostly other boutiques and ZS/LEK? Like is there a consistent competitor set we’re bidding against?
I'm trying to switch from consulting to product management. Is it possible to make the switch directly or would I need to go to business school? Are any FAANG companies keen on PMs with a consulting background? Are there any courses or books that could help me make the switch? I've been seeinga lot of ads Product School for instance. Is that a better value substitute for business school? Sorry for the question overload lol. Thanks in advance for your help 🙂
