Looking to sell my book of business, currently with a Managing partner. Can I sell it to an outside source?
When you make plans with a partner for lunch/dinner, do you make the reservation or let the partner make it? I’m meeting them for the first time and I think they’re planning to treat me.
After coming from IBanking and then spending years into consulting, it's very clear that IBanking is much more difficult. It's not even close.
Hi all, looking for advice on whether to seek a CS degree. I’m an older guy about to successfully make a career shift in to SWE. I graduated bootcamp last may and I’m about to start my first jr. engineering role at Oracle OCI. I’m in my late 30’s with a couple of kids. Is it worth it for me to seek a CS degree at this time? I’m not afraid of the extra work, but wondering if the eventual payoff would worth the effort. Also I’m concerned about having the skills needed to get Sr. quicker.
How do you detect distributed system leader failure other than with a timeout?

Does anyone know of any business oriented, but novel/fictional books with interesting characters? Not looking for self-help, more of actual literature with business themes/plots.
HR question. When switching companies and the new company has a 30 day waiting period before health insurance starts, how do y'all handle insurance coverage? Cobra wouldn't be an option as resigning doesn't qualify.
Has anyone taken a sabbatical? What was your company's policy? What was your experience like making the request?
As I get older, I'm beginning to realize how little personal time I have since so much of my time and attention is consumed by work. Working from home has dramatically improved my life, but I have begun to feel rooted to a single corner of my home with little variety. I want to have experiences in the world that 10 days of vacation simply can't provide.
Had my first round (case) at Simon-Kucher & Partners for a US PhD (life sciences) entry level position on Monday. Still haven't heard back yet and recruiter isn't responding.

Can anyone help me out Paylocity? Would love to talk to someone about a referral since there seems to be a lot of open positions I would fit.
I work part-time as a freelance designer in a marketing agency and recently asked my boss for more hours. He said he'll help me with more projects but all he's done is assign more work to me without extending my hours, and he said he's not willing to pay me overtime. Now I'm scared to lower my workload because he will just say I am lazy and don't want to work. How do I get out of this?
Is it unreasonable in this economy to ask your landlord to maintain the same rent when extending your lease?
Benefits of starting recruiting now (7 months) vs waiting till at least the year, year and a half mark?
I’m guessing I should just touch it out?

Why did so few men speak up about #MeToo? I'm sure many of them went through some of the things women talked about for the purposes of advancing their careers, yet we heard little to none of them speaking up.
Just learned there is a tiny firm called Sigma Consulting. How soon will we see Ligma and Smegma consulting?😂
Experienced hire who started a couple months ago, I got a lot of support from this bowl so happy to answer any reasonable questions for the next bit
Can we have the Software Engineers on this bowl volunteer to help Fishbowl fix their notifications issues. It is always different day different issues with the notifications; fixing one bug to create another one. I can volunteer by writing the requirements hahahaha

I bought my first home last year and have a 15 year mortgage on it. I have had a 800+ credit score consistently. During Feb this year, the mortgage company changed and my autopay no longer worked. I tried setting it up in March but due to technical issues it wasnt fully setup. I missed my payments for 3 months (April May and June) as I was traveling internationally and didnt receive any mails or calls regarding the same. My credit score plunged down to 618. Is there any way to fix this?
In need of some advice! I just received a job offer that would allow me to leave my toxic school, but it is a $17,000 pay cut and has a clause that states I cannot have another particle job while employed with them; is it worth taking?
About to receive a formal job offer. Interested to know what a good entry-level Accounting Analyst salary would be in a large metropolitan area? Glassdoor and all other sites give a very large range
I'm into Digital Marketing currently and I want to get into Marketing higher levels or into branding. I want to get a better perspective of things and try and get a mentor to build my career that way.

Kirkland M&A 3y that got great reviews but looking to move to Denver. Any market firms hiring?
I got an offer with Microsoft for a very senior role and it would require me to move to Redmond, which I think would be very hard on my family. I don't know that I'd like it there myself. But should I try it for a few years and then be better positioned long term? It feels like a rough time to move the family.
