Me (ABC) at the asian market: sending pics to my mom - ‘Is this what you are looking for?’ Her - ‘no’ repeat.🤦🏻♀️
Hi Fishes.. I currently have offer from TCS and CGI. CGI pay is more so confused whether to join CGI or TCS. I'm from Python Automation background with AWS experience as well.
Please help me choose from below offers
Publicis sapient -21lpa
Legato Health care - product based - 16.5
Exp :8 years
I have been in multiple interviews- I have an offer from my least desirable company and they have only given a a few hours to accept. I have final rounds with two desirable companies tomorrow with favorable feedback. I have a task to complete for another company where I am one of the final 2.
I’m stressing over accepting/not accepting the offer, in fear of ending up with nothing, despite all the final rounds. I’ve been close before, and not received an offer.
How would you look at this?
If someone has 10+ million at Fidelity in an IRA with a semi-local advisor. What does that portfolio and relationship look like? Are fidelity advisors full service or brokers? Any planning going on?
I know I have to look for a job but I really don’t want to. Waiting it out until I can start a new job somewhere else that’s not my cluttered home office.
Seeing a couple of rumours on the new Deloitte consulting bandings, can anyone shed any light on what the news is? PwCs coming in at the end of June…
I have been offered a position in-house at a $500M-$1B company, mid-sized city LCOL, 10 YOE in private practice. They offered me $120k, w opp for undefined discretionary bonus. No paid parental leave or 401(k) match & only 1 week PTO in first year (but claim they have discretion for more). Is there any way to salvage this? Salary guides suggest TC should be around $200-215k. I want to get my foot in the door but this seems crazy low.
Which of the following is a better option:
1. Great house in a safe gated community, in Gardena in low 900s
2. Average house in Torrance for 1.2M plus
Family Income : ~250k
1 kid, ready for school in 2023
How’s everyone holding up?
A penny for your thoughts. Is anyone well served by the legal fights between Jay Alix and McKinsey? Read the pleadings in the RICO case, and the black and white narrative went all grey.
How do you handle awful, difficult clients? Feel like I'm at the end of my rope with a couple.
Myself a Support Manager heading Production Support of a SAAS Product company. Having 14+ years of experience providing Tech Support for Enterprise customers. My key skills are with Technical Support, Incident Management, Escalation Management, and Customer Engagement. My key technical skills are Python and MySQL. Current CTC is 32L in Chennai.
But, I do not have a degree. It's harder to find companies value skills than a degree. Can someone refer to a company that values skills not degree?
Would you rather invest in a house/townhouse in Chantilly/Fairfax area or Alexandria/Springfield?

Moved to industry and noticed my boss has been dumping all of their work, meetings on me and blocking calendar for personal time. How do you manage this? I have been overwhelmed since I joined past 2 months. They are nice and supportive it’s just that the minute I complete one task they start pushing more and more to me with no breather in between. Some items that they owned before I joined are also something I have to ramp up on.
Does anyone have any advice/insight for transitioning from provider focused consulting to pharma/life science (specifically regulatory affairs)? I’ve been serving provider clients for 3 years but was a regulatory affairs coordinator for 2 years beforehand. I’ve been thinking making the transition into pharma may be a better long term plan. Really appreciate any insight!

What are some LS hedge funds? Newbie here
Orbimed, Rock Springs, Perceptive Advisors to name a few. Don’t forget all multi-manager HFs have pretty sizable LS teams in place.
A close friend has worked at a top hedge fund for five years. I can tell you about the WLB, from an outsiders perspective.
Work is Sunday - Friday and he typically works about 12 hrs per day (with less on Sunday).
The work environment is very intense. People are regularly fired and being there 5 years is considered an eternity. I’ve actually met more people who have been fired from his hedge fund, than those who actually work there.
It is common for people to scream at work and it is a high pressure environment.
Financially, the rewards are supposed to be amazing. He is 30 and once commented that a person makes $600k/yr, is just average at the firm.
OP, going directly from consulting to HF is doable, but challenging considering HFs have their pick of the litter. In general, HFs would like to select candidates familiar with public markets and fundamental analysis, skill sets that are more common in ER, IB, and PE compared to consulting.
Also as BCG1 stated, MD and/or PhD is almost a pre-requisite in this space nowadays.
The stress within HFs is monitoring/valuing your ~50 company coverage (and their competition), having regular pitches before a portfolio manager, and trying to have your picks not get blown out.
As an associate, stress percolates down and your workload will often match the senior analyst.
