What’s it like actually living in LA? From the Midwest and wanting to move to a bigger city (NYC, Bos etc) but the idea of LA entices me. Been as a visitor but curious as to actually living there TIA
W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
Being the noobie points chaser that I am, I booked flights to LGA (Delta) for a week in NJ instead of EWR (United) without having heard about the nightmare new traffic pattern. Is it really that bad?
anyone in DFW area?

Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀
Are broker fees a thing in San Fran? Paying ridiculous fees to rent makes me hate this city
The volume of stock photography using people staring at their phone with a huge smile on their face is driving me nuts. Is that the best we can do? Ads, emails, banners, etc., sea of sameness.
United at LGA can suck my fucking balls
Been posting my more expensive watches here, but what do we think about this? Cannot afford the Double Red Sea Dweller lol, but this does a good job of giving me the feel of it. Robust and Good Movement though !! Thoughts?
Anyone fly Delta with ORD as their home base? I realize I may need to take connections but is this worth it? Lost EP last year, status matched to Platinum with Delta if having status matters
Restaurant dinner recommendations in Las Vegas on the strip? Open to any type of cuisine.
Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
Really annoyed that during a majorly stressful campaign (for a client that quite frankly sucks lol) that in every meeting, forum etc Project Management isn’t EVER mentioned in the acknowledgements. I guess it’s normal but I guess since I almost lost my mind and had three anxiety attacks in one just one week alone I’m feeling salty. I can’t even begin to describe the mental, emotional and spiritual fortitude this took. Again I know I’m preaching to the choir, PM is such a thankless job but argh!
Hi everyone, I interviewed with Microsoft yesterday and whew, I'm not one to say I dream about labor, but lol, I really enjoyed the interview/vibe. I'm super anxious, does anyone know how long you hear until the portfolio round? This is my second interview ever in UX Design for reference. The first one I had with a start up ghosted me.
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
Hello fellow MBB fish! I had a question I am hoping to get insights on. I accepted an offer from McKinsey in NYC and was supposed to start in March, which I now pushed to May.
I wish we had the culture of afternoon siesta... my productivity is so low from 2-4pm 😪😴
ATL folks...Albert in Inman now!
Current manager up for promotion to senior manager. Any idea what to expect for 1st year senior manager (new PwC position, not the director equivalent at other firms)
Thoughts on Skype vs. on-campus interview? Invited to interview with Anderson, but coming from the east coast, I’d love to save the $ & time for other interviews and (hopefully) admitted student days
Just got dinged from McK & BCG US, but received offers to interview with their offices in my home country. (EU) Is it worth doing this and try to transfer to the states at some point or should I reject outright? (Have a T2 return offer and a Bain interview for the US)
Hey I am selling 6 domestic upgrades and 4 international upgrades for United Airlines. The only caveat is that the ticket(s) must be booked by the end of the month. Get them while they are hot!
Recruiter said 6k relocation bonus - I have to spend $3k and can take the remaining balance. But after signing the letter she corrected herself and said I only get back 50% of the remaining balance. Is there anything I can do about this? The numbers and terms of relocation weren’t on the offer letter.
Which Big 4 has the best benefits?
Marcus by Goldman just sent me an email, the day after I funded my HYSA with them, to let me know they are dropping the rate from .6 to .5. This feels like a con. Anyone else have this happen? Might as well just bundle all my Amex accounts and switch to Amex HYSA since it is currently at .6
Any chance of Deloitte upping the fitness reimbursement to $1k to follow KPMG and now EY’s lead?
Interviewed for a role at google and my phone interview went okay but not great. The recruiter wants to connect over a call - does google make the effort to call you in person to reject you?🙄
From what I read, EB GC is comprised of following steps roughly: PWD > PERM > I140 > backlog wait time if applicable > I485? How far in this process can I go without endangering my non-immigrant visa status? Can I complete PERM and still renew my TN before filing I140?
