Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
Anyone who had COVID or pretty sure they had COVID, have you noticed any strange symptoms long after the initial sickness? I exhibited all symptoms in late March for ~10 days and recovered. Since then, I’ve had a few weird 1 day fevers and occasional stomach issues, latest in August. Wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences.
When you show up to client site and no one from your team or client team is there, how okay is it for me to wfh for rest of the day? No one tells analysts when they're taking PTO or wfh I guess 🤷♀️
And I was offered by EY GDS to be a Technology Consultant. How's life there? Is work-life balance real? How about permanent remote work?
Got a consulting job offer from Deloitte and Kpmg. Can I reasonably negotiate remote work from home or is this just not going to happen despite covid?
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it
Guidehouse folks! What perks do you have, i.e. coffee and meals expensed, Uber/Lyfts expensed, flexible/remote work?

Does IBM provide reimbursement for WFH setup ? I heard there will be 45k balance per employee where we can claim broadband and other expenses through bond portal. Can anyone throw some light on this if you have any idea ?
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!

My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Hopefully the current administration listens to South Korea. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-15/south-korea-wants-to-share-its-tips-on-tackling-the-coronavirus
I gained over 25 pounds over lockdown, went for drinks with colleagues for the first time since March 2020, and the very next day I had other colleagues messaging me on teams and dropping remarks about how they are walking a lot these days to drop COVID weight. It might be a coincidence but probably not. Feels like my weight was discussed a lot behind my back as no one else in the group of people that went out had gained weight.
This parenting-while-working-during-Coronavirus has led to my kids making fake ads about Lysol wipes and hand sanitizer.

I’ve been out of consulting for 2 years. I went to company A (was a series E startup but has since went public). I left company A for company B about 3 month ago. I had a job I liked and it was relatively easy at company A but I felt like it wasn’t pushing me at all so I left. I started at company B (a series C startup) a couple of months ago and haven’t had a great time. I’m struggling and don’t really enjoy my team. My old boss at Company A just left and the company posted a job opening (cont)

Would it be a bad move to leave B4 FDD for somewhere like A&M or HL or Riveron as a soon to be A2? I’m being recruited and their practice seems to be growing like crazy so I see it as being a good opportunity to ride the growth and get paid more in the meantime. Any advice?
I recently interviewed with Capital One, but didn’t quite make it past the final interview. They said to wait 6 months from the interview date and reapply. Anyone know if they mean initial interview date or final interview date?
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
