Everyone always says Big4/MBBs give you amazing exit opportunities. What’s considered an amazing exit opportunity? What types of jobs and offers would you leave big4/MBB for?
What are sales teams/the sales environment like at your company? Is it cut throat or collaborative/laid back?
How does one get experience managing a team if no one will hire me to a position managing a team? I’ve been an HR Director department of one.
If I’m making a move to a new company and they mandate the vaccine, how do they validate that? Are companies asking for literal proof?
Wondering if anyone has suggestions for welcoming a new Director to our company.
My boss suggested bright colored balloons, but I feel like that's too childish. What are some professional, classy ways to say, "welcome to the team, we're glad you're here"?
I'm going with a greeting card signed by HR and his boss.
Any other thoughts?

Hi fellow HR folx! I am hoping for shared ideas on a project I am working on. We’re looking to revamp our attendance policy, which needs a more encouraging, positive element. I am curious if my fellow HR folx are willing to share what has worked for them or really what good looks like. Not sure if this is the right bowl to share this post in, but if there is one-I’d like to get to the right direction!

Which agencies out there are working in office full time (and if not now, when), hybrid, or completely remote? How is it being received by peers?
Thank you in advance!! Any help is SUPER appreciated.
Boutiques vs Big 4, tier 2-3, etc. Pros and Cons? How does the (consulting) experience differ? 🤔

New joiner here! Wanted to ask about AMEX corporate cards - I know we foot the bill and get reimbursed, does this apply to the annual fee as well? If I pay the annual fee, I get reimbursed back for the annual fee too right?
Also, curious to know what color AMEX card everyone gets from the different firms (big 4, other firms, and for junior level staff). Green, Gold, Platinum?

How often does everyone find projects complete/go-live and a client is genuinely happy with what’s been delivered and it tangibly improves their business?
How many times can you switch firms between years 1-7 before raising red flags? I’m a third year, 5 months in at my second firm, and I don’t really like it. I know that I eventually want to go in-house. Can I leave after a year (and go to another firm) or should I stick it out 2-3 years and just go in-house from there?

How are weddings done in your country/culture? Eg how many days, interesting customs, who pays, etc.
Company culture and team culture are never the same in my experience. Sometimes company culture is great and team culture is horrible. How do you navigate that or do you feel differently? Thoughts
Do you have 5G rollout in your area? I don't but I'm wondering if it's really all the commercials make it out to be. Or am I really missing out?
In the era of MeToo, has anyone helped implement harassment guidelines or worked on a cultural transformation project? If so, what was it like?
I recently left public accounting to join a start up. I don’t have too many connections in this world yet, does anyone have recommendations for either articles, books or other sources of information I could use to get an understanding of the startup world and how I can make the right career choices moving forward. - *I’m on the product manager side*
Thanks in advance!
MBB Interviewers: I know the bar & I’m not there. Would it be terrible to tell those who’ve offered to refer me (lateral hire) that I’d want to wait until 2021 to interview? Friends say I’m crazy & that they don’t see any lateral hiring in Jan-March, but my understanding was most MBBs hire year round (pre-MBA). The thought of waiting another year to re-apply is scary. Please help!

Does anyone have any books/media to recommend on being an Asian in the USA / UK (and particularly being East or Southeast Asian)? Have just finished Big Little Man (Alex Tizon) and Severance (Ling Ma) both of which were excellent and captured a lot of complex feelings I hadn’t been able to put into words before...
