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!!
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
Is it just me or does this article feel like an advertisement for Borosil company and their MD patting himself on the back? https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/02/perspectives/borosil-employees-india-covid/index.html
Who recovered from COVID and how long did it take? What were your symptoms and how did it start? Did you have to be hospitalized?
Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers. I started a little bit before Covid and there were no bonuses given out by my firm so far in my career until this year because of it. I was passed up for my first real bonus with no explanation. Is it time?
Contacted by a recruiter from PwC, I have 4 yrs of experience in management consulting with a health background. Been doing mostly healthcare operations & strategy work—what area would I align @ PwC?
It’s been a hot minute. Thai Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin Sauce (Keto). My pre-covid work clothes are now loose on me. I’ll have to buy a new work wardrobe wherever that may be. I quit my job and am back in school. Goodbye tax, goodbye busy seasons, goodbye billable hours.. 😁
30-40% small businesses already shut down. 15 dollar minimum wage, 33% increase in corporate taxes, increased payroll taxes from new health plan. Yeah... good luck economy. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/joe-bidens-15-minimum-wage-hike-would-kill-2-million-jobs-new-study-shows
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?

How accurate is an automatic watch suppose to be? I just got my first automatic watch recently and it seems to gain +6-8sec per day. Is this normal? Seems like quite a delta. I have a tissot lady le locle btw
So my 18yo daughter who just started college texted me that she wants to do solo Europe travel in December and mom (my ex wife approved it). My daughter has traveled extensively in the US and abroad with me. However, she has never traveled even to a neighboring town in the US solo and is just learning what it means to live by herself as a freshman. I'm very concerned for her safety but if I put my foot down, my daughter will detest me. How do other parents in this bowl see the situation?

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

Boarded my flight and this super tall gentleman sits next to me and was so tall he was taking leg room and I think I inappropriately cuddled with him when I was sleeping, embarrassing 🤗
So why is the Postal Service and it’s 600k + employees exempt from the vaccine mandate? So much for all federal workers must be vaccinated, guess Joe is proving he’s a “Union guy” after all.
