Anybody here that few up in household where mom or dad had an affair? How did it affect your romantic relationships/beliefs/outcomes in adulthood?

I'll share my story - mom was the other woman, I was clearly unwanted, grew up resenting men and cynical of all relationships but I found partner that has shared belief to be loyal. His father was the unfaithful one and my partner learned from that.


I was first year out of college and already moved out of state when my parents separated because of infidelity. It changed my relationships. I had never cheated on a significant other in the past up to that point and made it a point to never cheat on a partner from that point forward because I saw how it destroyed my family. I had some trust issues for the next 5 years but eventually got over those after some patient girlfriends who understood why. It ruined my relationship with my dad for a very long time. I would never cheat on my wife because I’ve seen that world and I want nothing to do with it. I will divorce before I ever cheat. It’s a built in standard of my life.

Why do clients think that Accenture can compete against Deloitte? I know the fees are way cheaper but the quality is terrible. (I am not trying to offend people. Just an open discussion)


Any insights into Deloitte’s Cyber Data Protection practice? Got invited to two back to back meetings with the leadership team. I looked at the job they’re interviewing me for and I meet maybe a third of the requirements, so I’m not even sure how I was invited to this interview


If you've ever ________, you might be a consultant.


Don't forget to turn off that 3:50 AM Monday flight alarm!!!


Most r/t flights to Cancun are $250 right now. FYI. PTO. FTW.


Tax season, and I just noticed I have a household income of $700K. Guess how much we've saved? $0!!! $300K goes to tax - thanks to CA $60K goes to housing mortage, HOA, and tax $15K goes to travel & vacation $10K goes to BTS... Where did the rest of money go? NO IDEA... Looks like just dining and grocery stuff. I don't have even have kids, didn't buy any luxury brands last year.

Choosing to be homeless for the next 3 months. Pad rented out to airbnber. Hopefully my project will keep me on for that time. I’m single, no kids and homeless. And loving it. #homelessconsultant


How old are you and how much do you have in your retirement account? I’m 28 and currently have 139.5k. Please no 420.69 balances please 😅


And it's a late night again woohoo


I realized I only enjoy chasing higher comp. Job switches every 2 years, always looking out for the next bump… it has taken a toll on my mental health. Tried to get hobbies to distract but I find myself back at websites checking comp numbers. Any suggestions to get out of the race?


Any Capco consultants here? Any info about it would be greatly appreciated. Got called for an interview but don't know much about them


Getting feedback to "smile more" makes me want to throw my laptop thru a window&quit. Go ahead and tell me I'm overreacting or being a special snowflake but a guy would not 👏get👏that👏feedback.


People on here talk about Tumi suitcases so I looked it up since I am clueless and never heard of it. $600+ for a carry on?! Y'all are crazy


Trying to understand the reasoning behind why some folks think now isn’t a good time to purchase a home and that the housing market might crash...rates are historically low...prices—although slightly high—aren’t unreasonable considering the low rates...inflation is inevitable and will cause homes to become even more expensive in the future...no?
