Hobbies….with the free time I have from not being at a firm lol


100% worth it. I was under market before so it wasn’t a huge adjustment at first. Now I’m making about $50k less than I would be had I stayed at the firm. That being said, I’m still very financially stable and my life/mental health/happiness/stress levels are so so much better. I feel like myself again.


Yea! I write on the side and get gigs through ad agencies and have a shop. If I don’t do it, it’s depressing to just have the corporate job.


Where do you submit for writing? I definitely have the time/interest for this

I upcycle furniture as my creative outlet and keep a bullet journal. Although lately I’m still feeling stifled by my work.


An outlet for your creativity and time to pursue those ventures!

I feel like this app exists solely for the humblebrag.


Need advice: I live in Minneapolis where gyms are now closing again. Weight lifting was the only thing keeping me from a mental breakdown and blowing off stress after work. Minneapolis is so dangerous where I live that it’s unsafe to exercise outside, especially with sunset at 4:30pm, not to mention the cold. I live in a 400sq ft apartment with no space or equipment for exercising. What can I do to get exercise and get the endorphins going to blow off steam and stay healthy?? TIA!!


It’s crazy that millions of Americans are struggling to survive on minimum wage, while consultants are pulling $200k+ to make powerpoints


Just leaving this here…

Best part about Wednesdays is getting that flight check-in notification 😭🙌 #almostthere


I think the bench is making me depressed. I haven't eaten dinner.


Airport without pre✔️, guy behind me starts cutting the line. I ask if he's on the 7am he says yes and my response is so is this whole line get back here and wait. He swore at me but it was worth it


30 min late to date last night with a senior in college. Told her not to do consulting. Her first question on date: so what is consulting? Noooo


Slides/hour when you just started in consulting?


Took a chance: Left my laptop at the office to enjoy a work-free evening. #hopenothingurgentcomesup #hopenottogetfired 😂


Project wants to keep me on even though I do nothing all day. I mean I literally sit and watch YouTube videos from 9:30am to 3pm and check out to the hotel. Client loves me. WTF do I do I’m trapped


Looking to invest in some noise cancelling headphones and am soliciting advice. Bose? Beats? Some third option I don't even know exists?


I am graduating with an MS Cybersecurity this June and have been working as a Project Analyst for 5 years. I am in the process of applying to consulting firms (both big and boutique). I am looking to get a broad experience and travel (whenever that starts up again). Do you have any advice for someone jumping from industry to consulting? Any tips that would get me noticed by hiring managers and/or recruiters? With what you know now, what would you do in my shoes?


When on your flight home you're stuck with a small child, her mom and a baby in your row. Please fucking kill me. #notenoughalcohol


Ever get stuck in the last row on the plane and people treat you like the bathroom attendant? 1. earphones in means do not disturb, 2. The word "vacant" means no one is in there


I’m hearing that a recession is undoubtedly going to happen. Will we be impacted as Consultants and if so, to what extent?
