Enjoy this love fest Cuomo GMA interview by Amy Robach, praising his COVID response. At the end, her co-anchor goes, “You ask the tough questions.”
AITA - In September, I started seeing this girl casually and lately, things have started getting a little serious (we are exclusive). I don’t spend any time physically with my friends since covid started and have limited contact with my folks (they are old with pre-existing conditions). I focus on my client work and only spend my free time with her. She spends every weekend out with friends (despite my concerns, but she says she needs to go out and maintain her social life).
How are you managing anxiety around COVID-19?
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho
Anyone wants to defend the pretty boy? https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/29/politics/jared-kushner-coronavirus-success-story/index.html
I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing. I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does. Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...
There's some news that researchers at PGI Chandigarh successfully developed & tested COVID-19 💉. Can anyone confirm this? I am unable to find a reliable news article but it is being broadcasted on TV
Is it mandatory to come to office post covid situation? I'm new to Deloitte. I want to understand WFH policy..can we do permanent work from home?
What are consulting firms' relationships with the continent like right now. In the past, I've worked for a few firms which had London as a hub servicing continental clients and I'm curious about how Brexit and/or Covid-19 are affecting that. Are other European countries ramping up their local teams, or are they working on the assumption that nothing changes and the UK will continue to augment their numbers on assignments?
How have people been using the Covid stimulus checks? Curious cause I feel that the accounting industry hasn’t been affected as much as other industries in terms of unemployment
DC ladies any covid fitness you have enjoyed or even a studio you feel safe at? Running and at home work outs are boring me and I am just not going hard enough.
I joined the team less than a year ago and have been finding it difficult to meet people outside of my team/billable projects during covid. I'm new to consulting and want to meet people outside of my team and learn about their experiences. I've attempted to schedule coffee talks/intro chats with colleagues and joined different groups. What more can I do to stay connected? How do you engage with your broader team?
“OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination.” That’s nice.
Are people continuing their cleaning services during covid? How are you making sure it's "safe"? My SO is in the high risk category plus he's Uber paranoid. We haven't had our cleaning person come in since Mar. Back then, I told my spouse I'm not doing it & he said he'd do it and I shouldn't call the cleaning person. 10 months fast fwd, he really hasn't done anything (I'm not surprised) and the house is a mess despite me cleaning from time to time. Want to understand others handling this.
I really hope any stunts capitalizing on Covid will not be allowed to win awards next year...
Anyone watching the one world together special??! Go Daddy just had the most unique covid commercial i’ve seen so far.
Sometimes it hurts to think about how well I know some airports. What terminals/airports were you frequenting before covid?
Consider a new pandemic, at what % fatality rate do you think vaccines will mandated by law for all citizens? This is not the last pandemic society will face. COVID has a low death rate compared to Ebola for example. What % fatality rate would it take for governments around the world including the US to legally require mandatory vaccinations of all citizens? Would it be 10%? 20? 50%? fatality rate? Or will we never mandate vaccines in lieu of personal freedom?
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..
In the past few months, I’ve become very lonely. Partly due to Covid lockdown and my introvert behavior, I spend days without talking to anyone except my mom who lives abroad, so can only talk at night or in the morning due to time zone issues. I was intermittently seeing someone who wasn’t the best person to be with, and he used to visit me on Saturday mornings until past month. Now I’ve finally called it off with him and realize I don’t talk to anyone all day. (Contd)
Got laid off from PA, picked up a temp role in fund accounting, hated the work and quit, got a role for 10k higher in internal audit and love it so far. The one thing I've learned from all of this is
After significant research, I found that I’m making 40% less than others at my level and have been owning projects at the SM level for the last two years. I made a deck and requested a comp review las

By Monday, half of the month will be done. Yet no intimation and no clarifications. Surely none will get the revised salaries now in this month and bonus will be paid in October. Then, why the hell I'm waiting in here for... 😒
Anyone willing to give an EY referral?

Hi FB! I’m looking to fill a Sr. Account Director role. It’s a boutique agency based in NYC, but remote is ok as we’re all remote at the moment. Luxury car experience is a plus!! Please DM me if you’re interested or know anyone who might be!
TC consulting: reason why I like strategy projects better than implementations- once you are done with the proj you hand over the decks to client and leave. In implementation projs im always asked...
Ok, I’m feeling a bit defeated with the job hunt so coming here… how does one actually land an interview within FAANG?? I actually think my experience is applicable and my friends in FAANG always say how good of a fit I would be but for the love of God I can’t get past the resume screen. Can anyone who’s done this successfully provide advice?
Any book recommendations for philosophy, psychology, and business? Or any book you read last year changed your values? Going to fly international, gonna read it on flight. 😍
QUESTION FOR ALL THE RECRUITERS: I’ve applied for multiple roles on LinkedIn where my experience and creative work match the job description. However, I’m not getting any interviews… NOT A SINGLE ONE. What could be a possible reason for this? Is anyone here willing to jump on a call and help me understand what I am doing wrong?
Do firms honor online MBAs for the increase in compensation? I've been in consulting for a year and I'm considering online programs bc MBAs get paid significantly more (although we do the same work). Thoughts?
