Get rich from the banking first


My boss came from IB, so it’s possible. I think a good starting point would be reading “eat your greens” and/or “how not to plan”


Thank you will check those out now

Power through the discomfort of relearning your career. If you're good with numbers and spreadsheets and organization the jobs pretty easy.


Thank you. Im ready to learn something new.



No growth opportunities and would like to learn something new.

Hello everyone, Does anyone use 12.9 iPad (with a magic keyboard) as a “second workstation”? For example: lightweight typing machine when you need to work on an email or draft a document, or just join a conference call. My primary machine is MacBook Pro 16 but it’s a bit balky and I’d prefer not to take it with me when I’m leaving for a vacation.

I’m 26 and I work at an RIA doing reporting but I’ve always wanted to work in investment banking. I have way too much in student debt ($150k) to go back to graduate school to try and get an investment banking internship. I don’t have my CFA but I would like to get it. Is it too late for me to break into the industry without prior ibanking experience? Should I retire that dream? Or is grad school the only way to get in?

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities


Leave a secure but underpaid, full time, toxic af job or go freelance and get the title bump at and indie agency? Healthcare etc scares the $hit out of me


What are your thoughts on Deloitte India vs Deloitte USI. Please suggest which one should be considered for Technology Consulting Practice. ( Taking in account the factors like performance bonus, annual hikes, learning exposure) P.S. - Deloitte India is paying considerably more and with a higher designation too. TIA
