People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected
After a year of chaos from Covid and furlough I don’t know what the hell I’m doing with my career anymore
I want COVID to be over bc I miss my grandparents. They live with my parents who I cut contact with 2 years ago. I used to see them at their day care center, but thats been closed. My parents took their phone so I lost my last bit of contact with them. I’m just so sad.
It’s Wednesday. Do you know where your 1.9 million covid-19 tests are? Hold HHS CDC and VP accountable
When do you know it’s time to move on to a new agency? I’m coming up on my first year and feeling very apathetic about my employer right now. It’s not that we haven’t produced great work or that my team gives negative vibes... but I feel an urge to move. I was feeling this pre-covid but after them not really doing much in response to blm and getting approached by a couple recruiters should I start biting? I know grass isn’t always greener but I kinda want to see for myself.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.

Condolences to the family of the teacher in North Carolina that recently died from Covid. Sadly-she won’t be the last of our profession to die in the “line of duty.”
What would you do, if anything? A coworker with confirmed COVID19 results (asymptomatic, only lost sense of smell) refuses to wear a mask and continues to go out, even sends her toddler to daycare.
Just got an email from realtor for my apt lease asking for open house every Sat and Sun for a month. Can I refuse this somehow? Still very much concerned about COVID. In NYC.
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...

I interviewed for an internship at an agency I wasn’t super excited about, but wanted to get some interview practice in. When I met the ACD who interviewed me, we really hit it off and it made me (..)
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?

Any insist into DoorDash’s New Verticals team? Specifically DashMart? Have a screen for a manager position with them and am wondering about culture, pay, etc
I’m sure this won’t come across well but I have to say it… my husband and I make good money (about $600k combined) and are grateful for it but these Biden tax increases are going to kill us. The truly rich don’t get hit hard meanwhile it sucks to be an upper middle class family. No matter how much I make somehow my take home seems to keep going down.

When trying to move internally (BO to MO/FO), do you think network/someone pulling you in plays a bigger role than your skillset/credentials?
So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.
Any tips for non-MBA or business background folk in preparing for interviews? I have upcoming 1st round mcK interviews and trying to tow the line of bringing my non-business-founded strategy ideas into the cases (i work in International gvt) or stick to talking about business concepts only? My case assessment was extremely fast so my sense is I wont get the chance to do both but im also imagining that part of their interest in me is for my non-business-founded strategy experience
I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions.

What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?
