Anyone working out in San Diego? I will be there for the next few months, looking for a few weekday drink peeps.
Booking flights for family from India on a short notice. I am not getting any direct flights from Delhi to IAD. Does anyone know of any agents and do you recommend going that route or book directly?
Has anyone noticed the insane amount of advertising Accenture does in JFK terminal B and C?
Frequent travelers: I got 6k miles from AA as automatic compensation for a 6.5 hr delay, JFK>CDG. Genuinely have no idea whether that’s good or if I should ask for more. Thoughts?
Cali 🐠 is mammoth lakes airport open or planning to be open before mid June? Or is the best bet fly to Reno/LAX and drive?

What on earth is going on with CLT today...
Anyone have thoughts on Hudson Advisors/Lone Star Funds if you’re in the dfw area? Know anything about working there? Don’t know much about them, if anything at all

Stuck at ATL. 4 hour delay!!
Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.
What is the best approach for CPA? Get a MBA, MACC or double major in Accounting&Finance get the 150 credit and prepare for the CPA exams?
TFW you wake up, see no work emails, and immediately convince yourself you're about to get fired.
How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
Can anyone refer me to a management consulting firm in LA? Im 1 year out of Berkeley with 1 year of project management experience. Please and thank you. I will buy you lunch or dinner or both
I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.
A.T. Kearney, how does your total compensation look as you progress? I was curious about Associate and Manager level. Thanks!
Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)
How is PwC's expense policy? Breakfast/lunch/dinner allowances? Phone allowance? Hotel options?
For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
185k salary, looking at buying a 800k duplex in Los Angeles with 20% down, I would live in one unit and rent out the other for 2k per month. Is that reasonable given the current market?
Would you have gone into consulting after your MBA if you already had pre-mba experience? Why or why not?
Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
Thinking of traveling to Sydney from NYC to spend rest of maternity leave w/ family. LO is 3mo old and travel time is ~32hrs each way.. is this too much?
How’s EYP compensation now after the meeting? I have 3 yoe and will they let me come in as a consultant or a senior associate?
I am single n looking to adopt a dog, with travel every week, how much would it cost per week for dog sitting and such? Any ideas how I can keep traveling and have a pet. Ideas appreciated. Desperate
Ugh. First okcupid DTF and now hidden valley ranch BFD. Lazy and trying too hard at the same time. And to make it more relatable to suburban dads, they got the kid to say- I’ve got your bfd right here
Anyone have any insights to the accelerated MBA program at Kellogg? Interested to hear experiences and if it’s worth it over the traditional two year MBA
I was in a meeting with my boss and account team discussing an overage on a project. We were looking at everyone’s hours, and our UX lead (a woman) had doubled her effort. The work was necessary...
