My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
Who left consulting recently due to Up or Out culture? Did you change your mind about Up or Out post COVID?
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
Why can't these people just work hard like the rest of us?!? Hands up! Don't loot! https://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-connected-lobbyists-secure-coronavirus-financial-aid/
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage

Someone tested positive for COVID-19 in my office today. They’re only shutting the office down for one afternoon for “deep cleaning” and not requiring any self isolation. Is this normal? Has anyone had a similar experience?
Can I apply infosys after 6 months after rejecting their offer ? Should I use a new Email ID? N.B. I have rejected the offer due to parental COVID infection on middle of second wave. I need a long leave which may not be possible while serving notice period. Informed and mailed HR with proper documents.HR accepted the same politely.
For US locations of Big Four firms, please indicate your covid vaccine policy and effective dates for when those policies started.
To the folks that don’t want to get the vaccine, what is your reason? This seems like a strange hill to die on considering people losing their livelihood over this
Ladies and gents- when/if you had option for timed intercourse (~15% chance of pregnancy) vs IUI (~30% chance), which one did you/would you do in the time of COVID? Option 2 requires partner and me returning to hospital tomorrow (I was here today). Option 1 obviously does not. Thanks for your advice in advance! This is following second round of clomid, FYI.
Who else is spending more time/resources on fitness and skincare so you come out better looking than you did pre-COVID? Are you seeing intended results?
Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!
Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
Have any of your law firms published a new or revised “remote work” policy - specifically what it might look like post Covid? We’ve had a lot of employees (in all peer groups) say they would like some type of flexibility to work at home going forward. We are trying to start a draft with some perimeters and look at all the pluses and minuses.
One of the most thorough and comprehensive pieces of investigative journalism on COVID origins. Definitely worth the watch.
Need some guidance here: I had my H1b transferred to a new employer recently. I am planning to go to India in December but I am not planning to get my visa stamped as my old h1b stamp is valid till July 2022. Am I risking it too much?
Really starting to wonder why people in PA are so underpaid? Hearing my friends, who work in other other industries, talk about their higher salaries almost makes me sick. They work 9-5, have less of a workload, and WAY more of a work/life balance. Not here to complain, just think this is a major issue in our industry and something to consider since turnover is supposedly at an all time high.
[Promotion & PERM] Scenario1: The firm already sent PWD and did the market test for Manager level, but before they got to file in the PERM, you're promoted Senior Manager. Q1. What's the impact of a promotion from Manager to Senior Manager on the ongoing PERM? Does it void the PWD and Market test? Would need to start over? Anyone went through this? Scenario2: The firm didn't file PWD yet: Q2. Could they anticipat the promotion and start PWD and Market test for SM before your promotion?
Is anyone (agency side) in NY hiring for consumer and market insights research (quant or qual but preferably both) roles at the director level?
Was it hard for you to adjust when going from multiple years of consulting (culture, environment, peers) to industry (laid back, "soft" for lack of a better word, more indirect than direct) What helped you make the move?
What is the average salary of a social media/digital marketing professional with 4 years of experience in SF?
EY partner worried about where I got my undergraduate degree. Basically overlooking my 10 year experience and achievements during interview. Good riddance
Is a Staff Attorney position in biglaw worth it over Associate w smaller firm? Pay seems to be better but does “Staff Attorney” stain your resume if you try to lateral into Associate elsewhere
Any agencies giving raises right now? We keep hearing the same pandemic-related excuse every week for the raise freeze. I was due for a raise when everything shut down last year, took a pay cut for half the year, and don’t know how much longer I can hold out.
Which role do you think is more challenging/stressful: - Controller of mid-sized public company, or - Big 4 Audit Manager
Had a client asking about blooom.com. I have read some about the company but would appreciate feedback...does a program like this help keep 401k balanced which is outside my advice or promote the DIY investor?
IM or SM in this group who need a Business Analyst in their project/ company? Please comment or DM
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
Hi Deloitte USI members, I have received the LOI and salary breakup on 9th oct 2021 and accepted the LOI on the same date. Now, I am waiting for offer letter and HR is telling me, you will receive the letter this week and this promise she is making every week. Anyone received offer letter recently?
