McKinsey & Company joining McK’s LA Office as an EM and wondering about the culture, WLB and how moving to the new office has impacted people working there. I would very much appreciate it if you guys could comment on the level of travel right now. I’m getting a place in Irvine and not sure if that would be a wise choice given the commute to the office and LAX.

Stuck between two jobs. I have a job offer from a Big4 and also have an operations job offer from a pretty reputable bank. I've done research into consulting and I'm pretty hesitant on the chaos, WLB, and politics that goes into it. The operations role seems a lot more stable and lax, but not sure if l'm giving up a lot by playing it safe. The C job also pays about 15k more than the Ops job.
Any insight from current/former Cs or people who have been in similar situations?

Hey everyone, would 12/23 afternoon not a bad time for holiday travels? Booking for a flight for my parents from overseas to LAX ,trying to avoid crazy busy afternoon.

I appreciate how lax we’ve gotten with tattoos. One of the few firms where I see it so commonly and it makes me very happy! I’ve gotten a few inconspicuous ones out of fear of being “corporate judged”, but really want a forearm tat.

What do you folks generally think of tattoos in the workplace? (Please include your client experiences as well)

I'm so burnt out. I thought moving a level up to RN clinical coordinator would help. I have a desk and other duties that aren't clinical. Yet, it's not enough. I'm still doing my old job with patients 70% of the time, plus my new job. No staff, no choice. But 1 year in and I still don't like it. I always want to call out. The staff are nice but they are too lax with safety.
I want to keep moving forward in nursing and I'm just not loving it anymore.
What non-clinical RN jobs do you all have?

Hi - Tried googling this but there’s no definitive answer also asking here.

If I need “10 one-way” flights for a status challenge, does a layover count as 1 “one-way” - I.e., going from SFO to PHX if I were to do SFO - LAX - PHX would that be 2 “one-way” flights?

This challenge is for Delta if that matters.

UA NYC to LAX/SFO Premium Plus upgrade is $225 for each segment. Worth paying cash to upgrade? NYC-LAX is an evening flight and SFO-NYC is a red eye.

Traveling to London in November on United from LAX. The upgrade cost for Polaris business on the way there is $1,800 but the upgrade cost on the way back is $6,600.

Any idea why the price is so much more on the way back? It's the same aircraft (787-9 Dreamliner).

So… to more real questions… are most of the men in their twenties in consulting very immature/lax in their personal lives? Noticing that in a few but of course does not speak for all. Just am interested in knowing what I’m dealing with and what kind of boundaries to set. Thanks!!

I’ve been realizing I’m too nice and lax. I need to start being evil to people (that deserve it of course).

Genuinely curious - will people ever start going back to the office consistently? Lots of hybrid talk here but from what I’ve seen no one is consistent and no managers are pushing it. Very lax and seems that no one is overly eager to get back in the office on a consistent schedule. We started going in 2x week back in April. I’ve been in a total of 6x. Only 3x was anyone on my team even there. Not once was I told to come in, at most it was suggested for ppl to start coming as they are comfortable

Kind of random but I was an athlete in a non-revenue driving sport and I would say our league was pretty competitive. However, I've noticed that for the revenue-driving sports like basketball that our colleagues at Harvard and Yale consistently get better recruits and fare better on a national stage. Given the league's stance on scholarships, wouldn't you expect more parity?

Harvard had a top 10 recruiting classes a few years ago for basketball.

I feel physically weak& demotivated about this. There is nothing I can say back however how do I build myself up to not get affected?
