How do I have the conversation with a Partner about writing a letter of rec for a PhD program? Will I put myself a risk of being laid off if I express interest in continuing my education?
Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid. It seems in both my dating life (F dating M) and trying to make friends (any gender!) people are very flaky. I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!
Would you be okay with your daughter joining a sorority? Assuming for this post, that covid is no longer an issue.
Have final round interviews for a corporate strategy role with a major insurer. Any advice on questions to ask, interview prep, how to approach comp discussions, etc?
Pros/cons of going from a big 4 firm to a national, regional or advisory specific firm at a higher level? Is it worth it?
Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
What do you all wear for business casual? All of my professional outfits are formal, but my client is digital and super casual. Struggling with how to fit the culture but still stay polished
How did you guys learn SQL or other analytics tools in order to be interview ready? My work hasn’t prepped me for it and most jobs require it
Moving to final loop interview round @ startup with members of the team. Recruiter said convo is focused on enhancing my understanding of role + who I’d be working with. Any recs for good questions to ask beyond the standard ones?
Has anyone made the move from the States to Europe with healthcare consulting? What are the big players in management consulting in Europe?
Has anyone recruited before with the Google People Operations team or have any insight into the culture and benefits of the group? HCA consultant and beginning to look some for industry opportunities. Thanks!
I’m loving these TikToks where the moms calls to opt her child out of in person education. This is one of them: https://vm.tiktok.com/JFjjYTo/
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
Just got a scholarship to take the CAIA L1 in March 2021. Anyone taken it and can offer advice on how to prepare?
Anyone else ever feel a rush of inferiority sometimes? The thoughts of “I didn’t get promoted as fast” or “my salary is lower than theirs” or “they found a better exit opp”
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
It is disheartening, almost depressing, to see how many friends - good, smart people - have quit/are leaving Deloitte because of the "pay em the bare minimum" attitude. Unfortunately we are headed down the path of "if you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys". Isn't consulting about hiring, training, and retaining smart people? Good luck Deloitte.
