It’s becoming so apparent how poor higher ups are at recognizing people who step up (at least in my dept.). Either that or everyone’s preoccupied with themselves -- cont.
It’s naughty confession Friday! (Sorry I’m late). Today’s topic: Positions un a public place!
I’ll start: In a pool, woman sat on the edge while me inside the pool (both naked) and her legs around my neck rolling my r’s.
Anyone have tips for waking up early when I’m always tired? I really need to wake up at 6:30-7 so I can work out but I’m so exhausted in the mornings that I can’t get out of bed (and have recently started turning off alarms in my sleep... so even worse lol). Work hours are 8:30am-10pm on a good day and 12-1am on a worse day. Sleep hygiene stuff is tough since I can’t just stop looking at screens an hour before bed.
Anyone that is a financial analyst at a F100 company willing to connect? Desperately trying to exit and I feel my skills align most with these roles. Thanks!
I’ve “relieved tension” in the bathroom stall before. It’s not that I get turned on or anything at work, it just helps me focus back on my work. I feel so guilty sometimes but then I’m like, nahhhhh
How is work life balance in JPMC
Has anyone taken medical leave due to mental health? Any advice or lessons learned as a try to do this?
I’m a little late to the game, but The Love Life series with Anna Kendrick on HBO Max is so good!!!!
Is anyone actively using LeSS? We're starting a new product with a small team but I expect us to need to grow the size over the next year to 3-4x. LeSS sounds attractive but I've never used it and would like to know how it works in the wild.
Our existing portfolio uses Scrum with 2 week sprints, but to be honest I find it not to be very efficient (very likely how we are implementing it, with Design/BA/Dev/QA roles and gates). Love to hear what's working for you.
Hi everyone!!! Last year I put together a list of classrooms to exchange valentines with! We mailed 1 valentine to each class and included a picture if we could, and a few things about where we live and things we do!
I currently have 13 classes signed up! The more the merrier!!
We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand.
I have a form to fill out if you are interested! I will email everyone the list probably at the end of the week if not sooner!
Any Jones Day lawyers here have any thoughts? Participation in this farce is beyond questionable in my opinion given its impact on our democratic system. Have no tolerance for election fraud, but have yet to see any evidence of it.
What are the pros/cons to joining a more ‘boutique’ M&A practice over B4/MBB? One of my concerns is that as an experienced hire it would be challenging to establish strong network at B4/MBB.
How many days of PTO do each of your agencies give you? I guess including the five days of sick leave that NYC law requires.
I opted into the expensive insurance plan bc I’m going to start my heaux phase after my second vaccine dose today. I heard that prep is costly and I’m also afraid of the side effects. For those on prep, what was your experience starting out? And do y'all pay a lot?
Wishing everyone a great weekend and a blessed school year with success in teaching their students each and every day.

Any hotel recs for a weekend in New Orleans? Prefer Hilton or Marriott, but open to others that are reasonably priced.
Firm (boutique ) just announced a firm-wide reduction to 3 days a week (it was either that or massive layoffs). I’m very scared about the future, I love consulting very much and can’t imagine exiting, any suggestions on:
1. What to do with the extra time
2. How to find a consulting gig in the current times
3. Anyone willing to chat for career advice
Thank you all 🐠🐟 for being such a supportive community
For those that live in a house, how often do you use your dining area? Planning to buy a house, but the dining area is in between the living space and kitchen island (open floor concept). I don’t envision using a dining table even though it would be nice to have but even if I did I wouldn’t use it...thoughts?

Anyone else here hates to fly? Hate that shaking planes and fear of plane crashing and not seeing my kids. Always got a fear who takes care of them if plane crashes. Anyone else can relate?
Just learned I got passed for promo this year ("on track for Oct 2019"). Have crushed every goal (4+m sales, etc). Do I cut bait and leave now .... Or suffer another yr and hope it works out in '19.
WHY does my client hard-code EVERYTHING? 😭
I’m onboarding at a new consulting firm (big4). I was told in a big onboarding meeting with 300+ people in all kinds of diff roles at the firm that the ideal utilization rate is 80% billable. How long did it take you to get to 80% billable? And are there ever any consulting roles where you can consistently be less than 80% billable and still get promoted, get rated well, etc eg if your role just naturally involves a lot of admin work like proposal writing?
