Any firms “subsidizing” the costs of having a home office during this extended WFH period? My firm PwC announced a $250 payment to everyone to make up for any home office purchases (not that you had to buy anything to get the $250, everyone gets it regardless). Curious what other firms were doing.
I recently started a motherhood self-care and postpartum recovery blog sharing info, from women’s health and wellness experts, I believe all mothers and moms-to-be deserve to know. Check it out at WhatAboutMamas.com
When I started working at 22 I started off with 15% of salary into traditional tax deferred 401k. I’m now 27 with 88k in my tax deferred account, and am thinking about converting it to a Roth account. I don’t know much, but is this advisable? Is it generally the case that is rather pay taxes now if I think I’ll be making more money later in my career, thus I’ll be taxed at a higher rate than compared to today? And when is the best time to convert? Sooner rather than later? When mrkts are frothy?
Anyone been to the Maldives on points? Found that business class is 140k each way with Cathay. Does this sound abut right?
Engagement leads. How many of you allow periodic WFH weeks to allow team members recharge. And if you have a client that isn't fussy, why wouldn't you do this? Just curious.

Did your company do anything nice for you when you had a baby and went on maternity leave? Or is the paid leave enough?
Does anyone really believe these “partner pension plans” / pyramid schemes will really last for a few more decades?
My work is so meaningless that I feel the same sense of accomplishment whether I spend an entire day working diligently or whether I do nothing all day. And I don't think client notices either way.
What’s the difference between MBB case interviews and Fortune 50 case interviews in terms of difficulty and the grading criteria?
Any recommendations on offer negotiations for a Senior MD role at ACN? I heard they are giving very large sign-on. Also general insight on how much realistically to expect in bonus - cash and equity will be helpful (discount 2020 as an anomaly) their total comp. structure is different from big4 but their VEIP program makes things interesting
Where would you look into going after being laid off? Does anyone know any good startups hiring in the Northeast?
I want to have some concrete written expectations to help with classroom management. What are some rules/expectations you have in place?
I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening. I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?
