Is it unreasonable to ask someone from PT timezone to follow ET hours for 1 month during critical phase of the project? To be specific.. starting 9AM ET. Work day typically gets over at 6p ET or sooner sometimes, and this person makes it such a big deal and makes it sound like they are doing team a favor.
Just got a huge offer from a start up! 300k base. I heard RECESSION starts in July 2022, does it make sense to keep my 150 K job at Accenture and reject the offer? Don’t want to risk getting fired from start up. Please share some advice. I heard it on the news today, Nasdaq is at a 14 year low
If you were allowed to remote work from anywhere right now where would you move in the US?
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Is it ok to get personal in salary negotiations? For example, let the recruiter know that I’m a single parent supporting three young kids and two retired parents and I really need more money.
Why don’t more people put 20% down on a property and rent it out so the other 80% is paid for by someone else while they active equity? Is there something I’m missing?

Ever bombed an interview so badly that you agreed at the end of the call you aren't a good fit?
My nephew just told me he just got rejected/waitlisted by all the ivy leagues despite perfect test scores, APs and ECs. His college counselor told his parents it’s because he’s Asian. That’s ridiculous right? College admission don’t actually penalize because of race - just helps if one is URM? If not, how is this legal?
How are you all preparing for tomorrow?
Trying to assess if an mba is worth it (25 year old male). I am a VP making $200 K in pharma transaction advisory considering moving to IB. Worth the two year hold on my career and $400 K in lost salary? It’s terrifying to go back into debt...
I’m hearing that a recession is undoubtedly going to happen. Will we be impacted as Consultants and if so, to what extent?
Thoughts on this?
I am proposing to leadership that our open requisitions have fully vaccinated requirements for all roles, so that we are hiring vaccinated people into the firm. Is this fair or would it affect talent acquisition negatively?
Collective consultant power needed. Case study: my parents own a small bar. 8 tables. No room for dancing/games. Bar is struggling financially. How do I approach helping? Any ideas how to improve?
Just got an offer from McK for Associate position. Told my dad and now he says he’s not paying for my MBA since I landed this without it. Can’t believe he’s doing this. Sure, he paid for my UPenn undergrad, but MBA isn’t that much more 🙄
Pwc fishes, care to comment?
Can someone explain to me why we aren’t just moving to a school system where 1 teacher can zoom class to 200-300 students like a college lecture hall? Why are we bothering with stuffing kids into classrooms
How does this sound?
But once again not posting
Ah now it did.
Post to test

What do you all do after work on the side? Run a blog or startup? Side businesses? Hobbies? (inspired to do more with my free time 🙌)
Found an awesome industry position. Description says it requires 5 yrs exp with bachelors, 3 with masters. I have 2.5 yrs, no masters (but have had really great internships since fresh yr). Have shot?
Best part about flying a lot in November is I get to play the "Pedophile or Movember" game while watching people at the airpot
We consultants do have a crazy life. But is anyone planning to start there own business in parallel ? If yes how do you take out the time. I use my free time just to rest and Netflix
Another round of shooting in nyc, not even fazed or surprised. This is both tragic and also unsurprising. Is this the society we live in now?
Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...
Decided 2017 will be my last year in consulting. Going to go open a bar in the mountains and experience life. FB will be the only thing I'll miss.
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
