Despite all the negativity about how “bad” is handling COVID, we are actually crushing it compared to most of our developed-country peers.
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
We got a new family office client. Part of our process is asking for financial docs, one being insurance polices. This guy has 30+ policies. How do I find out if the polices are still in force?

Hey all, I seriously can’t find any Philadelphia-based Big 4 management consultant job openings other than a few senior manager or higher positions. Otherwise, they are all tax audit or tech consulting. Are the analyst/associate/senior management consultant roles titled differently? FYI, I had trouble with this pre-covid. Thank you
I've seen a lot of posts around APA and utilisation. Please correct my understanding if I'm wrong. APAs are only for those who have tested +ve or are taking care of family members who have tested +ve and cannot be used for any other situation. If that's true and you/your family have defeated Covid, why the fuss over utilisation? P.S. plz let me know if there's another use of APAs I'm not aware of
Seen today. Summer 2020: starring coronavirus
Help! I’m going to a delayed-due-to-covid evening cocktail wedding reception In October in central Massachusetts. I have a closet full of dresses and a black pantsuit, all appropriate, but some are several years old or dont fit perfectly. Since y’all are far more fashionable than I am , what looks would you suggest? I’m 52.
Anyone from Guidehouse here that started during covid? I start in 2 weeks and am nervous about how onboarding will go virtually! Any insight is helpful :)
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.

Consulting firms, how does your company use utilization as a performance metric? And what are your targets (e.g, Junior practitioners vs senior)
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?

You cannot tie WLB to the company. It is project dependent! A big company will always have projects with both good WLB and bad, but I think it’s never tied to the company. Agree or disagree?
Just had a call with a group of analysts with first names like Jackson, Lincoln, Dempsey, Hudson, Hunter, and Kennedy. If you're having kids soon, I hope you'll help make this the generation that stops giving their children last names as first names. No child deserves this.
