Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Healthy 43-year-old man gets COVID-19 and spends six weeks on a ventilator. Scary stuff.
2 years out of undergrad and planning to apply next year. I had a great relationship with an SM and decent with a partner, but since starting remote work due to COVID I have had virtually no face time with leadership bc of the size of my team and my responsibilities. Mostly just venting but ugh how do I get LORs!!
With the holidays coming up, partners and client relationship owners, do you get your clients gifts? Pre-COVID we sent treats to the office, but most of my clients are still home. Would it be appropriate to send gifts directly to them? If so, any ideas on things/price limits?
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
Looks like our industry is helping spread coronavirus https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-03-15/coronavirus-aerospace-consultant-web-of-potential-infection
Anyone else realizing that family, friends, and general relationships are SO much more important than accomplishments as a result of covid/WFH?
Is anyone dealing with pressure to travel/attend in person events? I’m pregnant, there is no vaccine for my young children and therefore we are still taking precautions pretty seriously as a result. Seems like “I’m being careful because of Covid” is no longer an accepted excuse
Fishbowl = Coronavirus Work-life
Where are all my ESG and CSR folks? Apparently the economic slowdown from covid 19 has caused emissions to slow down incredibly.
Back in office and want to lose the covid weight (not much, but I am petite so just feel uncomfortable with the added pounds). Mentioned it to colleagues. Colleague who is in good shape (male) told me a few days ago he could do a program for me, and found a gym close to where we both live for us to go to, Is it weird to go with him? I probably shouldn’t think this but somewhere in my head I am thinking.... do I want to be in gym gear around this guy? Haha
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
Anyone else think that death rates post-covid will drop significantly since covid killed a lot of people who were in poor health already and were likely to die in the next couple years?
How is everyone with COVID-19 symptoms feeling today? I’m in week 3 and still fatigued and coughing, smell is back!
Is the genetic payload being delivered by COVID-19 useful? Worried that with numbers dropping, I am missing out!
As a first year AC, should I be investing in property and renting it out? (houses are cheap where I live, and got even cheaper bc of covid) Or should I be investing in stocks/index funds?
How long after finishing exams did it take you to get fully licensed (during covid)? Trying to plan properly
Mindfulness / meditation/ yoga retreats in Central America (love to do Bali but not feasible during covid)- any recs? Beginner 35F, open to long weekend or 1-2 weeks.
Just signed an offer with a mid-tier coming from B4. About to put in my 2 weeks, but will they ask me to leave immediately because I’m headed to another public accounting firm?
Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
It's amazing how my Sunday night anxiety vanishes when I don't have to travel for the week.
How do you suggest structuring your resume when exiting to industry? I am struggling with how to list my consulting experience. Do I list specific accomplishments on my best/most relevant projects (e.g. evaluated client processes and implemented best practices leading to 10% efficiency gains at large client in xyz industry) or talk more generally (e.g. mapped business processes at multiple clients and developed models to measure efficiency gains)?
Giuliani says no Mueller interview, live or written. Their old excuse was that in a live interview Trump would be just unable not to lie. But if they won’t even *write* answers...
Can someone explain how they prioritize IRA after hitting the income limit so it is no longer tax deductible? I believe it becomes lower priority than HSA and 401k. Thanks!
If a company I got rejected from is posting an opening for the same role should I re-apply? Any chance of a better outcome?
Spg or Hilton honors? Currently spg plat but wanted to know if anyone had better experiences with Hilton (service, upgrades, points accumulation mainly)
Was a corporate analyst and recently accepted a job as an auditor for the state/government. Can this role have any complications if in the future I try to get back in the private sector or corporate finance?
Deloitte Digital Manager salary?
Frequent travelers: I got 6k miles from AA as automatic compensation for a 6.5 hr delay, JFK>CDG. Genuinely have no idea whether that’s good or if I should ask for more. Thoughts?
My firm merged and I have to take my money out of old 401k plan. I have option to roll over into an IRA. Can one roll over to an IRA even if he would be ineligible for an IRA under normal circumstances?
Anyone have insight into Deloitte Core vs USDC? Got an offer in USDC with higher pay but worse benefits. Trying to assess the trade-offs here between pay, benefits, and rep/future opportunities...
Hi folks - Any recommendations for a good immigration lawyer? Looking for some guidance on my wife’s OPT/H4/EAD
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
What are the best reasons to go full-time after freelancing? I started freelancing a month ago after I was laid off thinking it would just be temporary but I’m really enjoying it so far. My stress levels are lower and the money is better. I have a few full time opportunities in the mix and I’m trying to gauge if I should go back to full-time or stick with freelance. For those who have taken a full time gig after a successful freelance run, what did you base your decision on?
Anyone else nervous about the future and not being able to retire at a reasonable age. How do you determine how much you need for retirement? Late 30s family inc. is $200k planning on kids as well
