Mental Health and Support

Student flicked me off today, and said I treat them like "slaves." All because I asked them to try their best on their test. How do you cope or relieve stress? Also, what do you say to that student?

I’d make sure to follow the disciplinary procedures at your school and contact the parent about it. I had to write up a kid for disrupting class and calling me racist because I moved his seat a couple of weeks ago. He served ISS and then we chatted afterwards. I hope it’ll solve the problem until the end of the semester. Fingers crossed.

Do not take mean things children say personally. Follow through with consequences for the behavior itself, but tbh I probably would have laughed at her. Children are always surprised when you don’t give them the reaction they wanted.

I would make sure that student understands the ramifications of accusing someone of slavery. Slavery is not an issue to be joked about or tossed around flippantly it is a real thing that happened to people and it should be taken seriously.

Thanks for the reply. We’re talking about it in social studies and we even read the story Iqbal, and I’m trying to get through to him.

I would wait until I was more calm (I have a super sharp tongue) and talk to the student later. It's pretty rare that when I approach a student with an attitude of "I'm sorry that I have hurt your feelings/mistreated you, it was not on purpose and I would like to fix it" that they weren't receptive, and usually they will apologize and tell me what was really going on. The flicking off is probably a phone call or referral though.

Will smaller firms (OW, ADL etc) hire up a level when recruiting from Big 4 or do they see themselves as a lifestyle choice rather than a skills difference?

Has anyone considered “returning” to Asia as an Asian American? And if that’s even viable? Immediate concerns are not being a local, lower salary, and not being able to really even immigrate/get citizenship

McK folks, how true is the perception of the cutthroat culture at the firm? I've heard things like asking a peer an Excel question can find its way into your review as "weak in analytics"?

Is big 4 or MBB all it’s cracked up to be? Or is it better to be at a smaller firm? What’s more important to you in life: the name/prestige or do you value other things and what are those values? Just curious to hear people’s opinions

Can someone explain to me the ranking system vs tenure and salary structure at Accenture? I’m unclear where positions like “Associate Manager” translates to in the Big 4. Tried google already.
