I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.
It is not the time for a skinny relief bill https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/voices/2021/02/11/gofundme-ceo-congress-pass-covid-relief-desperate-americans-column/4440425001/
Anyone travel to Massachusetts recently? Do they ask for a negative covid test at the airport? And results from rapid covid test work as a proof?
The added pressure of navigating the application/testing process along with general concerns about COVID have been a lot to handle lately. How have you all been dealing with this and managing anxiety?
MBAs - is recruiting being impacted by COVID-19?
Any female 🐠 from NYC, want to forget about all this corona virus hysteria and grab a drink this weekend?
Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
Despite all the negativity about how “bad” is handling COVID, we are actually crushing it compared to most of our developed-country peers.
Does Accenture taking COVID proof isn't discriminating the folks who haven't taken vaccine for health or religious concern?
Last year at this time we were averaging 20 deaths a day from COVID. We were crying for a vaccine. Today we are averaging 40 deaths a day we have the vaccine and they are whining why do we need mandates. Really?
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
What an idea Sirji? Even the police in Kerala think different😀. In my state, we would have given the police gifts to conduct the marriage lol https://www.deccanherald.com/amp/national/south/police-offer-appreciation-certificates-and-gifts-for-weddings-following-covid-19-protocol-in-kerala-980889.html
Serious question: how do you know if you’re coming down with a regular flu or coronavirus?
Should I be worried about covid if my wedding is in December?? I know nobody knows for sure, but just wanting to see what others are thinking!
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:
Brace yourself, Dec 28 is tomorrow, and anxious IRS fan-base is gonna come knocking into your zoom
Which advanced non-MBA degrees are the most common at your firm? If recruited from a grad program with a non-MBA degree, did you start at the same level, salary, compensation track as an MBA recruit?
Best open source data for change COVID-19 details? Trying to look on the CDC and WHO site but would love to play around with and dataset. Any leads?
Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
Supposed to fly to San Francisco this coming weekend and can’t decide if I should postpone due to the air quality. Folks’ thoughts? I’ll be there 3 weeks
Does anyone work primarily out of a coworking space like wework or regus? New job is 100% wfh when not traveling (which is about once a month) and wondering if this would be a good option, since I have a kid on the way and will be harder to WFH.
After all the things happening in US how are you folks on H1B looking at Canada Express Entry? Are most of you giving IELTS? And hows the score been overall ? I know the cutoff is over 440 as of now..
Left consulting 4 months ago. Firm emails me today, filing claim on a 7 month old expense item. I don’t have access to old email and receipts thrown after I got PTO payout. How to dispute this?
Why does the 401k match in consulting suck so much as compared to corporate? What are some ways to make up for it other than just asking for higher base pay?
Question for Deloitte moms. I am 20 week pregnant and haven’t told my project leadership yet . Do you guys think I should wait till compensation is out or can I tell them? Also what is considered too late to tell the leadership?

Hearing from this bowl that Accenture Strategy pays $105k base out of undergrad, vs MBB which at most seems to be at ~100k base atm. Will there be any move from MBB to match this base? Is comp progression slower at Accenture, leading to the short term higher base to be not as appealing? Curious as to others’ thoughts!
New hire here! I need fashion advice for my first day at the client lol. Backpack or tote?
What would it take for you to move away from excel for building business cases, financial modeling, or cost benefit analysis? What if there was an alternative product to make it faster and easier? If it had the same flexibility would you adopt?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Anyone find it suspect when some Partners throw around "I'm sure we all would prefer to be in person..." type things? Like do you hate your family or something? Maybe I'm getting to used to remote work 😬
How is work life balance at EY cybersecurity consulting? This question is coming from a person who never worked in consulting but has been always on the engineering and architecture side of technology. I have received an offer and salary offered is really good. Can someone please help in answering what the culture is like? Work life balance? Average PBB at senior? Is it worth it move for like 20% increase from your traditional 9-5 corporate environment?
