Would like additional thoughts. 27M soon to be 28. Moved to Chicago from LA ~3 yrs ago. Debating if it’s worth exploring NYC/BOS or if I should go back west. Reasons for wanting to leave Chi due to culture fit. I find it hard to relate to ppl here of all ethnicities. More so, I find it interesting that I’ve been “discriminated” against by Asian Ams out here bc of my tattoos and “Cali Asians are trashy and ghetto”. I don’t think NYC/BOS will have the same issues but wanted more opinions. Thanks!

Anyone working at Levy Ratner? How is the office culture and about how much do you get paid?
What industry has the most excitable culture? I'm not talking about working until 2AM as a norm for perfect decks. Rather, what industry has the most people who get so amped they'll go overtime all the time just cause, without an expectation that everyone always grinds in the name of a deliverable they know is trivial. My hunch is tech startups, maybe traders, but idk... Asking consulting bowl cause no one else gets as much cross-industry exposure. And hey, maybe consulting still wins out!

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn. I feel like because this language is so limited in words to understand our culture, it restricted several generations to learn beyond what we know today about our country and culture. I feel cheated 😭😞

if you can choose: 1. audit with definitely (know firsthand from a close friend) amazing company culture - mid market (overtime not encouraged, if you do need to do overtime you get hourly pay for it or can choose to exchange it as holiday, can potentially do secondment to FDD in the future but not guaranteed in terms of timeline 2.

Hey friends - I’m currently on a brief medical leave (~1 month) and my management has been contacting me quite regularly by phone and email without notice for different documentation and admin processes relating to the leave. It’s basically taking up as much time as my regular work. Not sure what is reasonable here as I would really like to focus on healing and just deal with it when I’m back…isn’t that the point? What are my rights here?

Thanks in advance!

Facing a career decision: do I take the pay raise, or the position that I'm more interested in?
In years you don’t make your bonus, what do your billable hours typically look like? Are you missing it by a hair or is it normal to have some years where you’re only billing 1600? I just finished my first year and trying to figure out what a “normal” slow year looks like compared to a pandemic slow year.
Looking for input from indy/RIA, wirehouse, B/D, Bank, Insurance folks all in one spot. If you have $50M wrapped at 1% (let’s just assume for this purpose)... what does that equate to for total comp?
