Did you have an anniversary or holiday that you S/O knocked out of the park? Maybe they planned an unforgettable date, or they found the perfect gift... What was your most memorable celebration? What do you get someone who has everything they could want?
Looking for ideas, esp. during Covid!
On top of that, our anniversary is a weeknight, so unfortunately no travel.
Women in my 30s. I’m religious, my SO is not. He agreed to come to church with me on sundays, but due to covid we haven’t had time to give this a shot. Do I believe that he will keep up his word ? Anyone broken up due to religious differences? Anyone with a partner with different religion ? How did you deal with it ? How important is it ?

Audit Partners — Do you see longterm profitability of audit in general? Is it going to be worth being a partner, financially, given the risk you take on, in 10-15 years? With audit bids increasingly being driven way down by competition, & lower level resources demanding (much) higher pay than it was historically, I’m not convinced the partner track is still as enticing as it was pre-Covid. Seems like the job market/higher staff pay alone has GOT to be taking a huge cut into partner pay.
Everyone! I need your help! I was laid off due to a reduction in force certainty impacted by COVID-19! I am based in Atlanta, Georgia and I am currently seeking Business Analysts, Project Manager, Scrum Master, or Product Manager opportunities. Please, any help is appreciated. Thank you.
How long do you think we are going to be wearing masks?

My firm does a firm wide attorney retreat/meeting this summer. I’ll be about 25 weeks pregnant and I have to fly there with my local team/office. I’m very, very nervous about getting COVID while pregnant and I work with people who are generally lax around Covid to begin with. What would you do? Context: pretty much 100% attendance at the meeting. I’m nervous about flying AND the meeting itself.
Roommate and I negotiated a 2-year lease at only 5% rent increase from a covid apartment deal. This place was undervalued last fall too when a wave of people moved to the city. Could have easily fetched +10% but the management office liked us for consistently paying our rent on time. There’s still hope out there for anyone willing to resign for more than 1 year.
Heard someone call COVID-19 “Darwinism” like it didn’t disproportionately affect BIPOC and poor communities in the US. Darwinism is for a perfect society, this shit here is Eugenics.
Beyond the obvious, what substitutes for pre-Covid behaviors have you found yourself making in the post-Covid world? (And by obvious I mean please dont say video chat, I loath Zoom at this point).
Does it look bad to withdraw from the waitlist? I’ve waited for 2 months now, and the covid situation for the fall is just getting worse. I’ll reapply in the coming R1.
BCGers who’ve been to all-hands pre-COVID: tips/tricks for a great time for us newbies? 😉
What are companies doing to support working parents during Covid? Am particularly interested in what consulting firms are doing.
How long until cost consultants glom on to post-Covid productions and try to lower budgets even further so that they’re more dangerous than before the virus?
