Just found out that my SO is going camping this weekend and I am SO EXCITED to have the house all to myself this weekend 😂. Covid has given us wayy too much forced time together 🙈
Anybody aware of any recruitment agencies (at senior levels) in the APAC region (Singapore, India) for life sciences? Currently in the US and thinking of moving to another geography for personal reasons post covid
Very anxious about the rest of this year. My partner who I live with lost his job due to Covid earlier this year and hasn’t been able to find another one. He’s running out of savings because there hasn’t been another stimulus package and I am having a hard time getting through the days because of this added stress on top of my job. I can’t share with him how burdening this all feels— it’s like I’m suffocating.
Question: I withdrew from my 401K during COVID in Nov 2020 because I really needed the money. The penalty was waived bc of Covid. Does anyone know if I can put that money back into my account?
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?

Hi all - I exited into industry during COVID but am missing some of the consulting excitement - I’ve seen a bit about A&M retail group lately and want to learn more (I’d likely be entering at the director level) - anyone care to chat about the firm generally/that group specifically?
A recruiter told me my portfolio is not “digital” enough. So I created an instagram account named corona virus and started following people, just for them to get the notification. Am I digital now?
I turned down a bunch of jobs because they seem to be the same as pre covid. And honestly I don’t want to go back to the grind/ stress/ commute. And then they say people don’t want to work. Ummm people don’t want to slave themselves while you line your pockets thank you very much
Any consultants promoted from staff to senior last year that can advise as to what percent raise you received? Trying to see the difference between the likely 7.5 percent promotion increase offered this year as a result of covid and previous years raises.
Tested positive for Covid-19. Can’t smell or taste much and some sore throat for few days but no other symptoms. How long does this usually last?
I'm so thankful that EY has not made the Covid19 Vaccination a condition of employment and they allow work from home to remain an option. Such a great employer. I don't want the government or my employer to dictate what happens to my body, we must always have freedom of choice. That is one of the things that makes US a wonderful place to live. To all who received the vaccine I'm happy you had that option. I will wait a few years until there is enough vaccine data before I put it in my body.
Anyone go off Mirena and just feel weird? I have been off for a week or so now and just feel off. Wondering if that is normal or if it’s just a side effect from covid exasperated with thinking that it could be a side effect from going off mirena..

Fishes need advice, I'm a M3 and my Partners have repeatedly told me that I am the strongest candidate for promotion this year, they haven't said it for sure though.

Is it worth changing? what are your thoughts?

I’m interviewing for a PM job at a nonprofit. Any advice for how to talk about salary and annual reviews, etc.? I worked in nonprofit many years ago but not in tech or in a PM role.
I was contacted by an amazon recruiter for a position that they described as "leader of a business division (I.e. Hard-line business) They mentioned that I would have people reporting to me. From this I assume it could be a L7 PM. Any ideas if I am guessing right? I asked for the level but I got told that it is confidential. Any idea of the salary range? It seems to vary a lot for L7....

Do tech companies do case interviews / do they do it the same way as consulting? I have a biz ops interview coming up and the recruiter said they would have questions to test my quant ability / structured problem solving but she didn’t know whether it was a classic case interview or not.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
How would you handle the below scenario? I recently accepted an amazing job offer, start date in late November. I negotiated aggressively and I’m thrilled with the end comp. It is a start up with 100 employees. But the CEO is pushing for me to have regular calls with him before my start date to discuss work and review documents! I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot by refusing, but also don’t want to set unrealistic standards. Would offering 1-2 calls in the next month be ok? Thanks!
*Post discusses infant loss* My daughter died soon after her birth earlier this summer. I took 2.5 months off and am back at work now. I’m doing ok being at work because we’re WFH. I can take breaks, I can wear fuzzy clothes, I can cry when I get a firm birth announcement without anyone seeing. We’re supposed to start back at the office soon and I don’t know how to manage that. My grief can be triggered in a million different ways. Any advice from your experiences? (also I am in counseling)
I hear transitioning at the M/EM level at MBB & OW is a nightmare. Is it the same for S& and EYP? Curious if it’s just this level where it is hard to switch firms.
