Whats up fishes?
Had my annual review 6 months before a soft goal date of becoming a partner at a small firm. The firm started running metrics recently - it looks like others put a lot more billable time (many employees are older with kids grown). There were comments that I need to finish jobs sooner (push clients, staff, just prep myself, etc). I don’t disagree with these goals, but none of these were discussed as such in the last 2 years. Feeling like new goal posts will delay my advancement. Thoughts?
Anyone have advice on how to dress professionally but still show I'm feminine (I'm not a fan of dresses) I'm trying to put myself out there by not dressing so conservatively in my personal and professional life but, you know, it's a fine line at work.

Can I get into a Top 10 Business School coming from Big4 Audit? Want to look at more strategic/corporate finance roles for down the line, and curious if its possible. I know the process is competitive but I assume if I put the time in for items such as the GMAT i can do well on it. More looking from a resume perspective.
Associates: what is your monthly billable goal? Just trying to figure out what's reasonable 🤔 (my firm is production based, effective rate is ever-changing, and workflow is cyclical)
LS folks already in consulting - LEK is now offering referrals! Let me know if you’re interested (I’m a dedicated LS consultant currently)
For all the transactional lawyer out there… I had a month to close a deal and negotiate entirely a contract. Initially I suggested a clause from the pre signed agreement but then realized I could do better and I proposed a new wording. I am very used to seeing this during a negotiation where amendments are altered or new versions are suggested. Would love to know your experience and if it is normal to you to change the amendment proposal during negotiation? Sales team is putting lot of pressure!

That awkward moment when Deloitte is number 2 to PwC
When I used to travel for business, my local cab driver would pick me up for airport trips. One of the drivers was from Lebanon. He would ask me jokingly how he could contact Modi to find out why India doesn't compete in world cup soccer or win golds in Olympics. I would answer him all of my cousins are either doctors or engineers. This NYT article reminded me of the good old days www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/world/asia/olympics-india.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage
Stop talking about how busy and frantic you are with work on a holiday week. It’s not a badge of honor, and I’m not impressed. There are only two reasons why you’re busy:
1. You suck at planning.
2. You don’t know how to set boundaries.
3. You don’t care enough about your direct reports to set boundaries so that they can relax this week.
Anyone drives Uber while on bench LOL
Delta status question. I have silver status but am probably going to miss it by a tiny bit this year. I know it rolls over to next year but will my mqms rollover too? Technically I am silver so they should but also I didn’t meet this years requirements so I could see why they wouldn’t too. Confused by this.
Today, a recruiter asked me what my TC requirements were. I flipped it and asked what the range for the position was. We’re in allergy season in Texas. I literally choked as I went to say that my requirements were within the range they gave. Really feeling like I nailed responding in a believable way there. 👍
I love that in consulting parents are treated like minorities with special inclusion initiatives #fighttheman
