Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Any book recommendations on how to work smarter not harder, particularly as it pertains to our day-to-day as management consultants?
Any book recommendations on executive presence?
I’m interested real estate investing (buying my first house this year) and would like to learn more. Does anyone have book recommendations? I can’t decide between flipping or rental income properties but also need to just learn about the whole home buying process.
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
Anyone have any book recommendations for real estate investing? There’s a lot of crap out there. Looking for a more serious book for someone who already understands finance and real estate basics.
I need some must-read book recommendations. Can be professional improvement or otherwise stellar non-fiction. What has you raving?
Any (light) book recommendations to read- non fictional, not self-help. Psychology, abstract, biography, science, human evolution, how our mind works, etc..

Hi, could anyone please share any insights on case prep for Consultant role at EY-Parthenon London office?
Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
My agency technically has unlimited PTO but our managers quietly disapprove of the policy. It’s the kind of place where people make you feel guilty for taking it... (cont)
How effective is the "crack the whip" model of management? New manager seems to love it, but I don't think our team is actually getting more down (and seems to not like the new culture)
How many Fishbowl Love points for elite status?
Switched jobs in the middle of the year. Will my 401k contributions automatically cap off or do I need to manually stop payments around the time I hit the fed max limit?
Anyone in big 4 considering making a switch at this point? I want to quit my job every day but the uncertainty due to covid keeps me from doing it.
My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?
Anyone have insight into the culture at Adobe? specifically in a professional services standpoint. A good exit opp from a WLB standpoint? Seems like an awesome company.
Has anyone interviewed at D recently? Do they still do assessment centre for manager level hires? And is it normal to expect weeks between interviews?
Hi all! So I made the switch to industry 8 weeks ago and took on a completely new role (I’ve got about 6.5 YOE.)I love the org and my new supervisor, however I got paired with a colleague who has made it clear she doesn’t enjoy working with me and has serious issues with my working style. She’s a very senior and experienced person so feels bad that she thinks so negatively of me already. I want to improve, but it will take some time as I’m still relatively new. (Cont)
Currently interviewing at Appirio; how’s the culture, compensation, WLB, project work, etc? Anyone here works at Appirio?
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
