For those that left consulting for industry during COVID, how long did it take you to find your new job and how many apps did you submit? I'm on my 20th app and one interview but no offer, wondering if this is normal.
Do we loose all the Marriott bonvoy points if I close my chase Marriott credit card ? Don’t see the need to pay $95 when there is no travel for the foreseeable future.
Do you guys think that working in NYC/LA ( big markets) and working in smaller markets ( Midwest, southwest, north east ( excluding tri states)) have the same Grueling hours?
Do any of you guys you meal delivery services like HelloFresh or SunBasket when you travel? Best one? How to expense?
Apparently more than a few of my firm's associates moved to other states during COVID and are now quitting because we are coming back to the office. The wierd thing is that my office is quickly replacing those associates with other associates that moved here (a large secondary market) during COVID and refuse to go back to their (mostly NYC-based) firms. Is this churn happening at other firms too?

American Airlines is the worst...
Any recommendations on a debit card for domestic/international travel? This is for cash withdrawals, so 1) little to no withdrawal fees and 2) widely used, and 3) other perks.
Today our board votes whether or not to send us back on March 1st. We have been virtual all year. My diabetic husband and I both had COVID but we still haven’t been able to get vaccinated and there is a chance that we could get another strain. They could send us back for state testing and the WIDA. I’m nervous.
Good credit card to open? Thinking Amex gold - anyone have it and recommend? Or any others?
If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary. The HR person won't deny you on the face, but keep on delaying that offer letter release would take time. Is this true? Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?
Is it possible to use the Amex gift cards (Cathy cash, applause awards) to trade in a brokerage account? I'm guessing the answer is no. Curious if anyone has made it work.
(Word wall idea...) Hey, y'all! Wishing you lots of peace with however your school year begins after all of THAT! I'm changing classroom themes this year, and thinking to try a more interactive, velcro word wall. Our word wall is just...there. I want to make flip chart stories for Language that include blank velcro spaces for our words, so that the kids see me pull and use them in read aloud examples. Anyone else tried this? I'm hoping for durability through weekly use, here...

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
What's your firm's parental leave policy? Like how many weeks? Is it different for moms and dads (or primary vs. non-primary)? Wife and I are planning to have kids in the next two years and want to be in the best situation possible.
(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?

Do you think wfh makes consulting better or worse? I think it’s nice without the fatigue from traveling but the lost of efficiency and the number of calls I need to be on every day (sometimes 8+ hrs) makes me crazy.
