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?

Etiquette question: should I pick up the tab when meeting someone for an informational chat over happy hour drinks/food? The person is my former professor who works in my desired exit company now.

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.

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.

Have any of you sacrificed a huge opportunity in your career for family? So torn. Take a more prestigious role, more money but be away from my wife for a year. Or average role and stay together.

Does anyone find themselves to be in a position where their work is mind-numbing but they’re overpaid? I want to escape but the opportunity cost is very high. Curious if others feel the same.
