Swingers get the rope. I've always heard this and have tried swinging a few times into better positions. Man I just got the rope on my recent attempt. Just a friendly reminder for my fellow traders. I lost 12% of a sizeable position in terms of coin coins.


Happy fly day. Anyone got a delta drink coupon to help a friend out. It was a rough week


Thoughts on cyber exit opportunities from B4 to tech or defense firms with 2 years of software security experience and active sec+? Have heard work life balance and hands on experience are more common in industry


My first cross team interaction was with contractors. I felt like ZS is similar to any other IT company keeping the culture in mind. After a few days, I have had a chance to talk with ZSers and I must say you guys are one of the best people I have interacted with in my career. So empathetic and helpful. Cheer guys. How can we inculcate the same behaviour in contractors?


I interviewed for an internship at an agency I wasn’t super excited about, but wanted to get some interview practice in. When I met the ACD who interviewed me, we really hit it off and it made me (..)

What is ADP’s Core Team’s salary in New York?


Earlier this week I was so busy I only pumped three times when I normally pump 6 times. Since then my milk supply fell drastically where I only pump 2 oz each session even if I pump 30 minutes when before I’d be pumping 3.5-5 oz in 15, and it’s been 4 days already. I know it’s silly but I feel sad thinking I won’t be able to feed my baby sufficiently with breastmilk anymore. I’ll supplement but I felt happy being able to provide full breastmilk before and feel a sense of loss now. Just venting


Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…


Want to leave consulting in search of a better work-life balance. Outside of FAANG are you aware of any tech companies that are willing to hire H1B candidates?


Just got a targeted offer in the mail for delta gold card with 75K bonus miles, $95 fee waived for first year. Yes? No? (Have CSR, AMEX SPG, travel pretty exclusively with delta)


Fresh hire - still in probation - but have just been headhunted for a role at a large video games company. Pay matching. Role looks way more interesting and culture is much more chilled but isn’t Amazon. Take it or stay? How much does Amazon really accelerate your career?


Looking for feedback on KPMG? Culture, work-life balance, projects, salaries, progression etc


For those who have passed the CIPM exam, what is it like (and how does it compare to the CIPP/US exam)?

I see some of my peers leaving tech consulting in PwC to accept a position as a product manager in tech companies like amazon, google, Salesforce, qualtrics, doordash, etc? How is the transition like? Or how TC in a B4 compares to PM in a big tech company?


If I rolled off my project and fully transitioned a role to another individual, what is the appropriate amount of time I should expect to field / answer follow-ups related to the project?


Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!


Best way to not stress about the results of a final round interview? I think everything went well. Cases were strong and I answered everything well but I’m scared they didn’t like me or I wasn’t what they were looking for.


I have a full sleeve. Cool to wear a short sleeve polo to a client site or should I wear long sleeves?
