Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
My work was very understaffed prior to COVID. I hope the healthcare industry learns from this experience and increases staffing appropriately.
I’m thinking of doing an all-inclusive vacay late November or early December. Probably Punta Cana or Jamaica. Has anyone been to these resorts lately? How is everything given COVID?
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
For those who’ve had Covid, did your cough come and go? I’m having pretty bad coughing attacks in the morning but resolving itself by midday. Hoping it’s just allergy symptoms but wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience that turned out to be Covid
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?
Folks, this is David Bossie, the man overseeing the Trump legal challenges. But get this, not only does he NOT have a law degree....he doesn’t even have an UNDERGRAD degree....😑😑 What he does have, though, is the coronavirus.....
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.
Egg retrieval for IVF tomorrow! COVID test came back negative and did the trigger shots last night. The hcg trigger that goes in the butt caused much consternation but ended up being a breeze. NO injections tonight yay!
About to go to a concert with the big bosses. Haven’t gone to one since Covid and still a little anxious socially. Any tips on how to conduct myself?
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?
Looking to return to Big 4 as a consultant now that I have some experience; however, I’m not sure if the reason I’m not getting any interviews is because of covid or what’s on my resume/lack thereof. Has anyone gotten hired at Big 4 during this time and have any help or insight for me? Thanks!
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
Just checked in for a flight tomorrow AM. Slowly feeling like the pre-COVID version of myself

We’ve only been in person for two weeks and there’s already classes being quarantined because of COVID... so who’s idea was this to come back? Kinda feeling the need to say “I told you so”. 🙄

All the audit senior managers out there, what’s your salary like? M3 here trying to decide whether I should wait for a promo in 2022 or jump ship now and get industry experience.
This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.
At PwC(S&) are evaluations (career roundtables) driven primarily by utilization? How much do reinvest and snapshots play?
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Has anyone seen the Medicare telehealth stats? I was staggered by how much their utilization of telehealth grew!
What’s the salary range for a senior consultant coming in as a technology strategist at Deloitte? Recruiter told me I should be receiving an offer letter for $120k soon. I have 7 yrs professional experience (3.5 Fed consulting and 1.5 doing IC work). I have a TS/SCI with CI Poly and I can’t help but think $120k is low. Curious to hear thoughts of others.
I think I’ve reached the end of my consulting rope…I worked every night last week until 2am, every day there’s another ridiculous fire on this engagement, and my manager just called my client “fuck-tards”…I just want to move into tech to a pm or process oriented role, but I can’t get out of consulting fast enough
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
3 YOE, 710 GMAT, 3.6 GPA at top undergraduate business school, white male. Strong performer at Big 4 consulting. Involved in educational non-profit but no leadership role. Any chance at Booth or Kellogg?
Former McKinsey employee was caught working with his COO to impersonate a YouTube executive while trying to raise funds from Goldman Sachs. Is this what constitutes business these days?

Asking for a friend - are any firms open to sponsoring H1B for foreign lawyers looking to move into legal services/management consulting on the state-side?
Had a recruiter reach out to me about a position in EY Global Finance group. Anyone have any insight into this? Is it the back office Finance group or something else? Left KPMG for industry a few months back and it's been relaxing but not sure if I want to stay in industry.
Just got my second rejection. I guess jobs are hiring…just not me :/ Edit: I think I should clarify, second rejection to jobs I applied for this morning LOL. But to anyone else applying to jobs, you got this!!
I love how lawyers don't say what year they graduated from law school or college on their LinkedIn pages
