Big4 company wants me to tell my current employer (big client) that I am intending to join them and sort of get a soft approval. This is before even giving a written offer. I have no interaction with anyone from this Big4 co, nor has anyone associated with both companies has helped. This is all after interview, offer negotiation, offer approval. Does this happen? Seems like I wasted my time.
Post-Covid, I just cannot seem to find the inspiration to network at a conference such as the AWS DC summit. I initially wanted to get facetime with vendors to check out potential job openings. But it just feels like a large circle jerk where no productive work gets done. And besides all keynote addresses are recorded and available online anyway. Wondering if anyone out there feels differently or has had better experiences from these events? #aws

Does anyone work or know anyone who works at Mastercard? In the process of having interviews lined up. Do they credit check though? Have a pretty bad credit and I’d hate to be in an awkward position where I get denied because of credit. Should I cancel the interviews?
Anyone have insight on how life is like as a Senior Knowledge Analyst @ Boston Consulting Group? Curious to type of work you’d be involved with, WLB, exit opps, and of course pay. TIA!

Women in consulting, what are some of the unique challenges you face in consulting that men might not know or understand?
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.
HELP! I just got a BCG consultant offer. PwC paid for my MBA. I still need to work here for 3 more years before not owing any of it back (currently would have to pay 100% of it if I left). Is the move worth it? Or should I maybe push to move to Strategy& (internal move) instead of BCG?
Bravo Deloitte 🙌 Laid off a Senior and a year later, offer staff/intern position. Consulting or insulting🥴

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?
It’s odd that America is considered a rich country. The median individual income is only ~$32,000/yr. I understand that’s a lot more than most countries, but it’s a far cry from rich.
I got box braids and the client told the partner in my team that I need to remove them it isn't professional & he doesn't like it. Partner is now asking me to take them off. Just got them & it was exp
Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs. With that, I’ve bounced a lot with different industries and have done different roles for a year max. My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)
Since I was a child I’ve never liked leftovers. I love my food fresh. When I cook, if I make too much, I eat and throw the rest out. When I go out and eat, I stuff myself because I know it “won’t taste good later.” I hate leftovers so much that I genuinely cannot meal prep, the taste of food that’s been in the fridge for a day or more is gross to me. I told a friend about this and she said that’s stupid snd strange… I’m just here to see if I really am stupid and strange or if anyone understands?

What's the most absurd thing an analyst has done on your teams? Looking for some laughs.
Does Mitt Romney have the perfect resume? Harvard JD and MBA, BCG, Bain, Bain Capital, Governor, Presidential candidate, Senator.
My recent grad cousin is a new McK NY analyst and thinks he’s hot stuff (telling grandma he’s at the most prestigious office of the most prestigious “Firm” in the world and on the fast track to CEO of F500). Please help me roast him...
I am a little disappointed. I had a surgery yesterday. Today, my boss calls me and she doesn’t even ask about my well being or how the surgery went. It was all about work......
