Has anybody else lost their innovative mojo working in a consultancy? I used to love being an experience designer but now it’s just “how can I make the best of this ill-planned shit pie” what to do??
I'm unsure of my path as I have involved in sde, data engineering and machine learning. Being a consultant, I have filled in all three shoes at different times; although, havent reached to expert level in any. Now, when I'm applying for new roles, I'm uncertain to type of position ill be qualified for.
Have you felt lost in path selection for career like I'm now?
I have a condition that's technically considered a disability but it's unlikely to affect my ability to work (there is a small chance it could), and I can't always explain that in applications. Should I skip the question, or mark "No"? I know they're not allowed to discriminate, but I just can't believe that someone wouldn't privately consider it in hiring me, especially at a competitive firm.
Zoom calls where your colleagues say they/so-&-so is out sick, continue on saying there must be a bug going around. I’ve heard comments like this like 3 or 4 times in the last couple months - why do humans lack so much awareness?
Thoughts and prayers for the mid level associate who at 6pm told senior partner (who is out because he has COVID and honestly sounds super sick) that she would do a filing due today *when she got back from running errands.* 😳 (And yes she had been working on the filing. It was not sprung on her today.)
Read that police make 10.5 million arrests per year (an arrest made every 3 seconds) and killed 1,004 people in 2019.
Based on what is displayed in the media, does this ratio sound shocking?
Bad characters in the force need to be weeded, police depts restructured to be more effective.
But are the calls for defunding absurd? Are we overreacting? Or is this level of scrutiny justified?
Major cities have had police 'sick ins' as counter protest. Will this lead to lawlessness?
I'm thinking about getting into a relationship just so I can split rent and get a sick apartment.
So sick of men taking credit for women’s ideas, client relationships, the list goes on. That is all.
Disability question on job applications. Why is that really being asked and do you answer honestly?
Need HR advice. I have some mental health issues that are preventing me working at the moment. I plan on taking medical leave soon. I returned to work today and I am already having severe anxiety. Can my lead ask for medical records or doc’s notes if they find out I will be going on sick leave again? For what it’s worth, I have been on sick leave on and off for 2 weeks now.
Hi fishes, one of my friend is urgently looking for a job. She has 7 yrs experience in PowerBI, Advance Excel and SQL. Working experience in Novartis, mu-sigma companies. Had to leave job for family medical reason. Now looking to join immediately. Location is no constraint. Any help is appreciated.
Moms, have any of you had to cancel work trips (think orals etc.) last minute because baby is sick? We just got back from vacay and baby is running a fever for the last 2days. (Contd)
Anyone work for CVS infusion clinic or Care Medical Group (Amazon Care)? I would like to know what your experience is in these companies. Thank you!
ADHD Diagnosis later in life? Guidance appreciated.
My parents were very anti-drugs... I was never tested for ADHD. I scraped my way thru undergrad & grad school with the minimum GPA. I was doing alright at the office, but these pains have come back with WFH and I’m concerned.
I may have a legitimate medical need for adderall, but I’m worried about going thru this process as a 24yr old. Can anyone list the steps needed to get a diagnosis? PCP, then psychiatrist? Just unsure where to start. TY
Anyone think cultural issues will slow overcoming CV in the US? People in Asia wear masks all the time, not just when sick. They also don't wear outside shoes indoors. The list goes on. Thoughts?
My client has two kids at home who are sick with fever and cold-like symptoms but isn’t showing any symptoms herself. She was just cleared by her boss to go back into work by company policy! Insane!

How do people get the doctors note for short term disability because of burnout? I’m not trying to pull a fast one. I’ve been pulling >70 hours for multiple weeks and crying multiple times a week. I am thinking of leaving. But if I do stay, I’m afraid this will negatively impact my career. I know people have gone through this. Any advice you can offer?
Has anyone here gone through an M&A banking interview? I randomly landed one and have no idea how to prep aside from reading WSO and watching videos on building DCF models lol
I don’t know if this is super relevant on this bowl. I want to exit consulting a 100%. However, I feel exit to FAANG or similar company would again be a similar grind albeit a little better. My beef with consulting is less on the WLB (I’ve never had a job that had one) but is more with the real “impact” we make. Anyone else treating exit as exit to something more meaningful? Thoughts?
I just left PwC, how do I keep up with my CPE? I feel clueless because PwC trainings have always taken care of that for me
WTF, why does this country just keep printing more and more money?... How about people take some personal responsibility for once. Let bad businesses fail, and give more to the vulnerable population instead of just dumping money on the streets. If immigrant families can save hundreds of thousands working low-wage jobs with no benefits, there is no excuse

Thanks in advance for sharing your views.
Today my cab driver got pulled over while taking me to the airport and got a ticket for an improper right turn and refusing to give the officer his registration. The Canadian Policeman was super rude.
