LOVE when people tell you “get a therapist!!! :)” without realizing how hard it is to get any therapist, much less one that is actually a good fit for you AND has availability. Makes my damn day getting rejected for mental health assistance every single time.

Tricky situation: Got asked by the client I’m on if I’d like to join the team we’re serving. I know EY has a non-compete with clients. Thoughts/suggestions on how to navigate?
I am in the process of transferring internally to EYP, but received an offer from a small/boutique financial consulting firm with a 30% bump in base comp (and a significant bonus at year end). I was never planning on staying in consulting for longer than a couple more years, but how much is the brand at EYP going to benefit me in the future vs a relatively unknown (but reputable) firm focusing on a niche market? I am extremely conflicted.
Shoutout to the guy in the client bathroom who (for the third time this pastweek) cheerfully whistles the Andy Griffith theme while absolutely devastating the poor stall. The contrast is breathtaking

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
How easy is it to transition from consulting to tech product management? Do you need an MBA? I have 3 y/0 experience
Has anyone ever disclosed a mental health diagnosis to their firm? I have ADHD and have never told my firm because it was never relevant. I’m on medication and I always get my work done on time and I do a good job. However, I’m always behind on entering my billable hours into our time entry system (I keep track on paper) and I wish I could tell them that my ADHD makes small tasks like that harder, but I’m worried about how knowing that about me might change how they perceive me. Any advice?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
