Has a doctor ever suggested that you consider a less stressful job? And if so, are you male or female? I am female and have some chronic conditions. Today at a routine check-up with a new physician, he suggested maybe because of my "medical conditions" I think about a less stressful job. I have never received that advice from the specialists I see for those conditions, and I find it unlikely that a doctor would suggest this to a male patient. Does anyone have any insight?
A new hire here. Can we use EY laptops for personal use, like browsing websites and importing/exporting files, or is it frowned upon?
Also share some do's & don'ts.
Hi folks. I have submitted my documents 7 days back after qualifying the interviews and getting shortlisted. But I have had no response since that.
Does it usually take this long? Or are they ghosting me?
Heading into final interviews at 4 companies…
1. What should I do for references? My company doesn’t know I’m interviewing, so who do I ask, when, and how? It’s not a question of who would give positive reviews, but rather who is appropriate to put in that position knowing they won’t want me to leave.
2. IF I get multiple offers, any tips on how to negotiate higher salary or more equity? I’m excited about each company so I don’t know how I’d rank my preferences if the offers are similar.
Anyone know what Grey West is doing?

As a Canadian citizen, can I work in the US-based corporations in internal strategy roles? TN visa list doesn’t explicitly call that category out but I’ve seen on LinkedIn that people have managed to do so.
What are some of the best consulting firms for digital strategy roles? Looking for a change and was wondering which of the T1/T2 firms have digital practices in Canada. I have applied to ATK and McK. BCG is working to establish their presence in Canada but their team is focused on establishing top down. Bain doesn’t have digital focus. Can anyone shed some light on other T2 firms?
Is an MBA required to get senior leadership roles in Canada? I always find myself wondering if, down the line, I will regret not doing an MBA. However, my peers (with and without MBAs) don’t seem to think MBAs are needed in Canada if you have the right experiences. Would love to hear more opinions on this

Friends from Deloitte consulting who have left the firm for MBB, what’s different other than pay?
Does anyone else notice the insanely highly salaries made by our friends down south and get disappointed? How do you deal with this disappointment? Apart from the usual Trump, “free” healthcare, etc.
Does anyone know where I can purchase rapid tests? Super annoyed at the government here. They have pretty much eliminated all testing unless you’re either hospitalized or work in a retirement home. It’s probably easier for me to drive to the US and purchase rapid tests than buy it in Ontario
Any firms out there still hiring strategy consultants? I’m thinking about making a move in the new year and curious to know what’s out there. Also curious to get any perspectives on whether now is a good time to move.
Thanks in advance!

Buy sweatpants and hoodies for staying warm at home; we arent going anywhere to show off the jacket 🤭
Performance vs. Fashion vs. Cost. Where do your priorities lie?
Mackage is Canada Goose but nicer. And the same price.
Patagonia Fitz Roy or Atom AR for very cold days and Atom LT, Cerium LT, or FF Eos for not so cold days (plus a hard shell).
Would also highly recommend getting the hooded version of whatever jacket you choose since it's a lot of extra warmth relative to the weight!
I’m sorry but my Goose has served me well. No regrets
Picked up a Pajar coat for a 6 month stint in the Arctic a few years back. Toasty as hell, walked around a few times in -40C with only a gym shirt underneath and was fine. Was a good balance of the 3 criteria PwC 2 mentioned earlier, which is really what it comes down to.
Most decent winter coats are rated around -20C - -25C, so you're really just picking what you think looks good. If you're looking for a heavy coat, do your research (look at fill material, fill power, water resistance, etc.).
My info is a bit dated, but I recall Nature Quartz being a good balance of the 3 attributes too. If you can get by until Boxing Day, Sail has (or at least used to have) some good sales and they carry a fair bit of brands.
I bought mine from MEC ahead of a trip to Antarctica. It’s been perfect for Canadian winters too. No idea what Canada Goose costs but I trust MEC products.
No problem. Hope you have an awesome trip :)
Just stay away from the outlet store stuff.
Fjallraven Greenland jacket for fall weather and their Yupik Parka for sub zero
Buy Triple Fat Goose. Super warm and they don't sell it in Canada so few people will have it.
Best Purchase I’ve made!
FWIW. I walked into their Toronto store on Black Friday last year and got 20% off for signing up with my email (they rarely have/advertise sales)
