Which consulting firm provides the best standard work laptop? EY offers the HP Elitebook. Great for work and personal use.

EY1 we talking about the same laptop? I have the silver one that is really light. The screen is great for watching Netflix. Can’t really speak on the work performance , typically use the client laptop which sucks.


Still not the same one OP is referring to. I also just joined even then there were 2 different versions of the elitebooks in my start class


WMP gives a touchscreen X1 carbon, the best work laptop imo. Then again, you have to deal with the peanuts instead of a base salary.


Yep, that’s there one. Those rock. The i7 version is crazy fast too and has a longer battery life than seems possible given the specs and weight.

We have thinkPads which is fine. Probably going to switch to HP spectre soon. Our developers can order a 16“ MacBook Pro if they want to.

I would never dream of using my work laptop for personal use with all the monitoring tools that the IT people use.

I've worked at firms that had software that took screenshots every 30 seconds and recorded all web activity. It's not about personal use being okay, but more about the invasion of privacy in the "interest" of protecting the client.

Has anyone transitioned into product management? I would love to hear your story! I have 8 years experience in project management but I don’t know how to pivot. I don’t think I want to pivot internally because I’ve heard negative things about our product management teams. I’ve been thinking about moving into project management at a SaaS company but that is proving to be hard since I have no SaaS experience. Would love to hear anyone experience on moving into product management.

Regarding the politicalization of COVID, this opinion was shares somewhere else and felt compelling enough to discuss…..The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of (Cont.)
