Are virtual therapy sessions as effective as in person? I’ve never been to therapy but want to work on my anger issues because they’re only becoming worse as the Stress from life and Covid become worse. Has anyone started therapy virtually through the pandemic?
Ladies, I love facials and massages but can’t justify a full-blown spa trip even though I’d love one (2022 or whenever Covid threat is minuscule). How did you consider the cost? Are there R&R trips out there with this kind of pampering that won’t break the bank?
Do you think Alvarez & Marsal will require employees to get a covid booster shot and/or seasonal flu shot?
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
Do people realize that it is risky for an employer to have you on payroll if you aren’t vaccinated? If you get sick, they have to grant you leave and all that. So beyond the other staff, it’s risky to have someone employed and risk they end up with Covid because they will be short on labor. So it’s not unreasonable for an employer to require a vaccine to protect headcount.
I’ve had a few friends die tragically in the last couple months - only one being COVID-related. I’ve been dealing with lots of grief and I’m trying out BetterHelp to talk through some stuff. Haven’t had an appointment yet, but I set my account up using my firm laptop and now I feel like that was really dumb. Am I an idiot?
Has anyone started on anti-anxiety or anti-depression meds due to covid? Has it helped in any significant way? My mental health is really suffering and I’m considering medicating but so worried about all the possible side effects 😞
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
I have a gov law job with an offer to go to a great firm as a mid-level associate. Worried that if COVID continues, I’ll get laid off (much less likely at my gov job). Should I wait or go?
Since the start of the pandemic, I have been fairly safe and really haven’t gone anywhere (I think I went to TJ Maxx once in a moment of weakness lol). My family on the other hand hasn’t taken any precautions and actually did contract COVID. They keep telling me I’m paranoid and need to start going out but with COVID being worse now than it was back in March, I rather just not. I just want them off my back and wish they would respect my decision to not expose myself like I respected them.
Signed up for a job that’s 80% travel. Realistically- how much is it now? (Covid- post covid)
What "hard truths" or insights has the coronavirus crisis revealed about your own firm and our larger industry? Let's be pretty open and honest here.
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Will I need a negative covid test to board a flight back to NY (LGA) ? Has anyone have flew into NYC recently & could tell me their experience? Thank you, for I will be in the MO this upcoming weekend. When I call their state center, it appears most testing sites are closed on Sat/Sun. (Please no snooty/rude comments, I haven’t traveled since March & been been staying at home expect for needed errands. This is not a leisure trip by any means. )
What is your firm doing to boost internal networking? How have you been meeting people within your firm but outside of your service line since covid started? Anything in particular you think works?
I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?
To the guy at EWR arguing with his super pregnant wife about having his family come stay in your 1 BR apt after the birth. Give it up dude. If she wants her mom and gma instead of yours get a hotel...
I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳

Hi, everyone. I searched and didn’t see a relevant post. Is it best practice to have your video on during an entire 5-hour CLE on Zoom? Very much hoping not- if not, is there like a % that I should have it on?
Is anyone planning to get public service loan forgiveness after MBA? I'm wondering if it's the only way to go to non-profit given debt. Is it worth it? What if you get paid enough in NP to cover your loans?
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? Appreciate any input! 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially Chinese culture presence
Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?

HR at Fortune 500 company asked me for a salary target then told me it was ridiculous and we shouldn’t move forward and I agreed. 3 weeks later same HR rep asks for time slots for interviews with the
I have a GRE from a few years ago equivalent to a 750 GMAT. Quant is the only section where I lost points. At this point, is it worth attempting a marginally higher score on the GMAT, esp quant?
