I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.
Hey Chicago Teachers…Cheering you on from South Carolina where we can’t unionize. Thank you to that counselor that was on television that said, “No, schools are not safe” Please continue to open their eyes about how the non-plan or plan as usual, is not sustainable with Omicron and unvaccinated children and some faculty and staff. Remote til this Omicron settles down (probably the end of January) We need children in N95 or KN95, smaller class size, windows that open, testing, air filtration…
Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
Best place to travel to with relaxed covid restrictions that's also beautiful, inexpensive, and has a lot of good adventure spots?
Liberals pretending Biden had anything meaningful to do with the vaccine is probably the single most entertaining topic to read comments about. They’re trying so hard and I’m here for it!
Is your school requiring all employees to be vaccinated? Mine just did. If we don’t comply we will no long have a job after Christmas break.
PSA: TIPS TO GET YOUR COVID VACCINE IN NYC Your best bet to getting a vaccine in NYC is CVS. Why? Because you can select your time first, and CVS will give you 30 min to fill out the form after vs the other NYC sites. If you refresh the availability exactly when it drops at 12 am, you have a better chance. Tips and details in the comments below. If you are an Anti-Vaxxer - please move along...this is not the post to debate about it.
How are folks feeling about the recent violence towards the Asian community? For the Asians in this group, how are you feeling about your own sense of safety around the city?
My manager used to say “COVID is nothing, it’s just like flu and eventually we are all going to get it” and “we are healthy and young and we won’t get affected”... she thought I was overreacting back in March when I was wearing a mask in the office. Today she told everyone that her son became a close contact of a confirmed case when the kids had a party... and now she’s scared and anxious and worried waiting for her son’s test result... what can I say... Sorry not sorry?
Biden administration released a 200 page covid response plan today. This is the type of leadership the American people deserve. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/National-Strategy-for-the-COVID-19-Response-and-Pandemic-Preparedness.pdf
Hello, did you guys notice that a post about Amy Cooper/feminist racism was taken down from the coronavirus thread. Seems like our peers get easily triggered when confronted by the truth. Have you thought about how that affects the badges we get on here? Have a hunch POC’s comments get taken down or are not “reacted” to as often as white people’s posts. I think the image below triggered non POCs on that thread. Thoughts? We can’t even speak our mind on this type of platform?
Ladies, any suggestions for face masks for the coronavirus. Starting back with travel next week and wud like to use it in the airport. Appreciate it! 🙋🏽♀️
So Pwc is handling Covid the best, but don’t forget what they are really like... https://www.reddit.com/r/cringe/comments/6eh795/the_second_hand_embarrassment_is_strong_on_this/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
OT: I can deal with Covid, I can deal with the looming recession, but 14 elementary school children killed by a mass shooter is going to put me in a really dark place. I’m heartbroken. As a mother, I see the faces of my kids in the headlines.
KPMG people advisory might suffer due to the lack of consideration for workforce during COVID-19...
Serious talk. Why can’t Biden thank Trump and his administration for Operation Warp Speed massively accelerating vaccine production? It’s clear we would not be where we are without it. Biden could take credit for furthering production and rollout. Biden said he would be bipartisan and build bridges. I give him credit for largely turning down the temperature but this is an easy way to work on bridge building. 75M people voted for the other guy and with R vaccine hesitancy it may help there too.
Genuinely confused as to why so many state and local governments are dropping all covid safety measures. Things have been trending downward, and that’s great, but almost the entire country is still at high community transmission levels. I don’t understand the metric they are using to gauge things all of a sudden.
Nice! The post animation looks good!
How many first year analysts here started as interns? What did you guys do to get those jobs?

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

What is the longest you been in the bench?
What does digital do? People talk about how digital, strategy, and management consulting are the best places to be in consulting. What exactly does a digital practice do, if not actual development?
Considering moving from fed consulting to industry. New company won't pay for relocation across country but offering 20% pay increase. Would you do it?

Next person who tells me to "lean in" is getting punched in the nose. That phrase is getting tired and needs to go the way of "touching base" and "thinking outside the box".
How do you ladies deal with stress? Particularly skin, body, face, hair and etc. Ex. How do you keep from getting early wrinkles, breakouts & etc. Do any of you have beauty routines?
OK I know clients can make your life a living hell but then your own manager and teammates that also do that are scum of this earth
Returning to school soon. Created loan spreadsheets. It has officially hit me how broke and indebted I will be lol. For those who took out MBA loans, looking back, was it worth it? Any regrets?
Hey 🐠fam, I'm taking everyone's sage advice and plan on using turbo tax to do my taxes. I think my returns will be pretty simple - I've only worked in two states. Should I use the free version?
