Anyone watched Up in the Air? Amount of overlap between the dialogues in that movie and every day conversations make me sad. All talk of miles/points seem empty with this kind of "work/life balance"
How do you coach someone with multiple development points? I can list 3-4 broader points but feel that it may be a lot of negative feedback for someone esp. since they have not been receptive ...

Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting?

Moving to a much higher TC position in a few weeks (~130k to 350k) and want to make the most of this transition to reconfigure my existing retirement accounts for FIRE (currently 27).

Experience with vestas data analyst interview ?
For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠

I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
