PwC - allowed staff to order portable monitors, though that’s not new. No other stipends related to home offices. The firm is allowing for reimbursement of $100/day for up to 12 days for childcare expenses paid to friends/family while regular daycares/schools are closed.

I doubt any agencies are. Mine sure isn’t.

The COVID-19 page on DNet offers second monitors and other misc tech items

Monitors for EY at up to $175, some other misc. with partner approval on a case by case basis. Phone plan is already included.

EY - expense dinner if you work over 10 hours, however it’s taxable.

Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
