How much do we really need in order to retire? I am 41 and have 2M in stocks/cash and fully own my apt (3M). I have no outstanding debt and ready to find an exit.

Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?

So somehow the team made me the person fixing the slides and I got “criticism” for even a few misalignment. I mean, seriously, how can anyone perfectly align everything to the same position?

Why do so many 🐠 seem to hate the profession but continue to do it? I personally have no complaints and feel privileged to be able to do what we do. Plenty of ppl would kill to be in our position.

What’s the obsession here with FAANG exit opportunities? The cultures generally kinda suck, the hours are not much better than consulting, and the roles are hyper-competitive. What’s the draw?

How many of you are still in Consulting because you don’t know what else to do? I have absolutely no idea what type of exit I would want, so I’m sticking around until I figure that out I guess.
