Am I ever going to get past the self doubt mode? I feel like every time I speak or do anything, I just sit and think about whether I should have said or done it. I get worried I am wrong or overstepped. I am constantly worried I will get fired for being incompetent. Gah, I wish I could just trust in myself.
Does anyone know how late a Delta flight can get delayed? I have one Thursday night at 8 PM but I’m scared of delays because of showers. Will it get delayed or cancelled at that point?
Must be my lucky day - got onto a standby flight so I could get home early to see my kids, drunk guy in 1st class got kicked out so I could put my luggage there.
Anyone fly Delta with ORD as their home base? I realize I may need to take connections but is this worth it? Lost EP last year, status matched to Platinum with Delta if having status matters
Do I downgrade/cancel Reserve and go for the $695 Amex Platinum, or keep the Reserve and get the CapitalOne Venture? Looking for the best bonus on a new everyday card. Perks are great, but I travel ~quarterly rather than ~weekly nowadays
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?

How do you 80% travel folks handle kids and wife/husband while you are gone. I feel like FaceTime can only do so much? I need to decide if I want to go commercial at BCG or....
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Delta app is 🔥🔥
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
Just got laid off today 😥 super sad

I love when my job double books me on projects without my agreement and disregarding my PTO. That’s why we have the number 1 talent experience!
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

Signing bonus Q - has anybody had to pay a signing bonus back because of leaving less than the time stipulated in the offer? What was the mechanism for the company to claim the bonus - take it from your last pay stub/PTO balance/can they request a check if you don’t have a remaining ‘Accounts Payable’ balance with the company? Wondering if this is an empty threat.
Just started working with a new client, and they’ve spelled my name wrong in two successive emails. How should I handle?
