I received a verbal offer to go to a B4. It’s been about a week since then. They haven’t gone entirely dark, but how confident can I be that they’re not stringing me along, and that they may cancel?
Remember the big 4 consultant who got screwed because he expensed reloading his starbucks card? What was the verdict on that? Is that allowed
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Hi everyone! I currently have an offer deadline coming up from a big 4, but I am waiting to hear back from Goldman’s CWS department on my Hirevue. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes them to get back to you after the Hirevue?

Am I good enough to join MBB? I am a degree apprentice for a big 4 consultancy, with 1 day off for study (management degree with the Open University). Once I complete my degree, I hope to join either McKinsey, Bain or BCG as a generalist. I will have 4YE working as a (non-strat) analyst. As I see it, my greatest obstacle will be getting an interview given my lack of a prestigious education/good upbringing. Grateful for any insights on how I can maximise my chances/if I have a chance at all.

About to get an offer to move to a health agency. Anyone else make that move? How was it? I’ve lost major interest in the hustle glorified at traditional agencies, and have a fam so need better WLB. Realizing regular agencies aren’t made to work around family life…more like the other way around. Even when setting boundaries you get comments and pressure…working til midnight every night to “make up” for having to log off between 6 and 9 every night isn’t a good balance for me.
Should I be worried that my 401k YTD return is only 4.13%? Not sure how accurate that number is, if it is....pls help 🥲
So i have been fortunate that i have managed to go through my career without the need for a degree. I was lucky enough to have been hired by one of the worlds top consulting firms, worked with a whole lot of big clients and travelled a lot. It's gotten to the point where I am not even asked about the lack of a degree on my resume. Personally though, it bothers me. I have a whole bunch of certifications in my industry…but just no formal degree. (cont'd)

Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.

Any advice for sexless relationships? My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. Things are great except for the sex. He says he’s not a sexual person but admits to jerking off about twice a week. When I approach him he tells me he’s not in the mood. He shows lots of affection but does nothing to please me sexually. I’m in love with him but the lack if sex is driving me crazy. I don’t crave or want sex from anyone else and do not doubt his love for me. I’m frustrated and confused. Help!
