Does anyone know the difference between Nexus and Global Entry? Nexus is half the price, but it looks like it has all the benefits of Global Entry. Too good to be true?
Moved to US. Switching from star alliance to mileageplus. Is there a way to transfer my senator/gold to mileageplus somehow?
Those that switched to MBB after Big4 at M/SM level, what was it like going from being M or SM, to Consultant and developing slides / work products on your own again?
So sick of senior management that constantly asks for something, says it’s urgent, and then you find out they haven’t looked at the delivered materials three days after their “urgent” deadline.
Anyone have United Global Services?

Anybody heard of tulip interfaces, an MIT IIoT spinout? Currently M at known firm though non MBB, if they match pay and include equity would it be worth it? 100% aligns with my passion, tech and mfg
Just had a SM call and ask to move over 2 weeks of billable work to a PRD code because the project is over budget. Just checked and this will put me just at 89% utilization for year end (cont.)
Wellness check: How is everyone doing as you get ready for another week of WFH, after many days of social distancing? Make sure to schedule socializing time w/friends & family throughout the week.
Performance Reviews are coming up and I’m pretty sure mine is going to be average. But working from home while parenting toddlers the last six months while people are sick and dying, I think I’ve been a fucking superhero.
BCG Houston vs McKinsey Houston summer associate offer... friend needs guidance making a decision... any insights (eg on office culture, warmth, work-life balance etc) would be much appreciated...
Any MBBs pushing back postMBA start dates? Just wondering if this is limited to boutique and Big 4 as of now...
How does engagement manager experienced hire work at MBB? Left My firm over a year ago (finished 21 months as an Associate and was on track to get promoted in 3 months) to join a PE fund...contd.
I always hear coworkers laughing cheerfully over something I’m sure isn’t that funny. Must be nice to work with & have camaraderie with people who understand your community/culture 🙄
Recently got laid off from PwC and started working in industry and I wish I could say I'm better off. It's still challenging and interesting work, but I miss consulting culture :(
Anyone who interviewed Haas Round 2 heard back?
I have seen Big 4s sponsoring H1B visa in US however in Australia Big 4 dont sponsor work visa. Why is that so?
So now we're designing permanent restaurants around Covid? And they didn't really design anything CFA isn't already doing. "The design is in response to the changing ways consumers began ordering fast food since the pandemic's start. Digital orders and drive-thrus exploded in popularity for basically every chain..." Really?! No, there's a difference between popularity and being required to. https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/20/business/taco-bell-restaurant-redesign-coronavirus/index.html
I have no appetite or desire to eat at all. Maybe two months removed from a breakup and am not generally super happy with life- but I am a foodie and feel like I’ve lost all interest to eat and my love of good food. I eat when I’m so hungry I’m forced to but the thought of food makes me sick. Anyone going through / been through something similar? How did you get it back / fix it?
Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
Is consulting worth it in the long run? Any practical example of consulting boosting your LT earnings/ career (In another field outside of consulting) ? Working for a non MBB
If you had a 33% chance of making MD as an SM with 18 months left to make your story, would you take an offer at a tech company with equal base pay, somewhat better bonus, and $750k of RSUs?
Has anyone found a fun visa credit to use when they don’t accept Amex? Currently have the Gold Amex, but looking for an off visa credit card. Was thinking about the Starbucks Visa card but has a fee. Has anyone found any other non typical Visa cards? Happy to use your refferal link 😊
I interviewed for an associate position at a mid size firm. I really liked them, but they offered the position to someone else, only giving me an answer on the status of my candidacy after that person accepted. Is it wrong to assume that they hadn’t rejected me sooner in case others didn’t accept? If so, how can I let the firm know I’d like to be considered for future openings? I used a recruiter, should I have her tell them? Should I contact the interviewers directly?
Should I take up a position at a startup? It’s similar to what I’m doing but probably more visibility without the long hours and stress. Or should I wait to get a similar job at a big company?
I think I’m pregnant and I’m SO freaking scared. TMI below... . . . . . . I was supposed to start my period on the 14th. On the 15th, I had only the slightest light pink spotting and that’s been happening on and off for three days now with light cramping. Mothers, did any of you experience this when you conceived?? This has never happened to me before. I’m shook!
Hi! I received an offer as a financial analyst for $86k base in Seattle (with stock options and bonus, annual income will be ~$110k). However, right now I’m making $115k base comp in SF as senior tax associate. I think H1B doesn’t care about total comp package, just base salary - will it be difficult to transfer the h1b to a lower salary position? Thank you!
