Not a huge purchase in the grand scheme of things. Hold on to it and if you can make a last minute trip or two, send it. Decent hinge bio story to say the least


I went did four 3/4 day trips last season as an Associate and had analysts that went a few times as well. Two 3 day trips and it pays for itself. I’d say try to go around Christmas/before New Year, but you should be good, especially if you can flex working remotely into the trip.

Very reassuring. Thanks dude (ette). Honestly if I don’t get top bucket because of a few extra trips out west, I’m not even mad. Well worth it

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.


Hello Fishes, Please help me find out a rough estimate of in-hand salary for the below structure. Thanks in advance.

Do you usually lie about your current salary when negotiating with a new employer? And by how much, 10% 20%? I resent the fact that I am even being asked. What I currently make is irrelevant.

I’ve been in consulting just under a year. I came from a tech company and implement their technology. I hate delivery and it’s showing… I can’t find a role I enjoy. I’ve been on difficult projects which probably doesn’t help, but in general I’m finding I don’t enjoy the deep, in the weeds conversations that being in delivery requires. Should I try to move within my company, go back to tech, or join another consulting firm in a different capacity?


It’s crazy to think that there have been more reported coronavirus deaths in the state of New York than Asia, Middle East, Africa and Oceania combined.

My H1B expires in 8 months and my company has not filed my GC. Can i start processing my H4 and EAD based on my spouses i140 right away or do i need to wait till Dec to start my H4 application.


I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?


Immigration 🐠 - If I have an I140, how difficult is it to get an F1 visa to pursue an MBA? After the MBA, should I go through the H1B lottery process again? What happens to my spot in the GC queue?
