Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially a bigger Chinese presence
"Equal justice under the law must mean that every American receives equal treatment in every encounter with law enforcement, regardless of race, color, gender or creed, they have to receive fair treatment from law enforcement. They have to receive it."
Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?

Any LGBT consultants care to share about their work experience? Being LGBT is awkward to me as I feel the lack of diversity but it's also not common to talk about.
I hate that “this needs more diversity” is code for add more black people...🤦🏾♀️ 😥when will people realize that diversity is not just black and white!

So I have just hit around 110k net worth but not very diversified. About 80k is tied up in Rolex watches. These have appreciated in value a lot but I can’t bring myself to sell them. Any tips to overcome this and diversity?

How easy is it to lie about your job title when interviewing for jobs outside of big 4? For example, I’m a 2nd year associate, can I lie about being a senior?
I'm through to last round of an extremely cool job opp. Salary at best will be lateral but title bump and extremely cool set of responsibilities. However will only likely start in Jan due to needing to wait for bonus and security clearance check. Have baby coming end of may. Per my understanding this means I won't even get statutory pay? What should I do? Or should I just view this as missing 2 weeks of £150 (ie unpaid leave) and whatever paid paternity leave benefit org has (likely 2 weeks)
What kind of roles does “business analyst” open you up to? I have 5 YOE, 3 in audit and 2 in analytics/cloud enablement consulting. Found a role for business analyst at FAANG that sounds like it would make good use of my cumulative experience but not sure if these are typically dead end roles or not.

Hi, does anyone know what the base salary is for A2 audit in SF office is? Big4. Thanks!
I got a verbal offer from Deloitte today, and I was told I'll get an official email with the details. I asked for 150K for a Sr. Consultant role, SF office. Is this a good compensation? I'm guessing they might come back with a lower offer, but in that case, how do I negotiate? And how do I find out what the TC is made up of? My profile: YOE - 3 Non-MBA No prior consulting experience Any inputs are helpful. Thank you.
