What is your company’s paternity leave policy (paid/unpaid, number of weeks)? For those who took it, how was the experience (at home and at work)?
MAGA friends, why does every conversation with you about COVID and the US Covid response include a claim that it’s China’s fault? Let’s say I grant your premise. How does COVID being China’s fault make the Trump response seemingly better? There are a number of things the president has to respond to that he did not directly cause - are you suggesting we don’t want someone capable of responding to events they did not have a hand in crafting?
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis/IBM/Deloitte or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks!
Is it worth deferring MBA enrollment to next fall (if possible) or starting the application process again in a few months? I’m concerned about the impact of Covid-19 on the b-school experience.
Deloitte 🐟 - how long do we have to work to earn the full 401k contribution? I heard it was 4 years.
When I leave accenture, what do I do with my 401k? (Been here over 2 years so I am 100% vested) and what other implications are there for leaving ?
If the Dems come out and say Biden has COVID the week of the debate and needs to “quarantine”, it’s going to be one the most predictably embarrassing moments in modern political history. America doesn’t need a coward as President.
I feel like in order to do well at my job I have to mentally shut down. Even with covid I can't handle all the work politics and mental gymnastics required to do the most basic stuff, esp as a woman. The longer I work the more I realize career progression is determined by how much your managers like you/perceive you, not whether you work hard. I haven't been able to get another job offer but I just want to be out of here 😔
Befor Covid, were any of you working moms who had to travel? I’m in audit and I’m so nervous about having kids and having to spend the night away from them when they are little.
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
what perk/stipend/budget does your firm have since we went into pandemic WFH mode? eg reimbursement for tech, seamless credit, paying for housekeepers etc?
how much is everyone contributing to 401K? i’n currently at 8% and feel like increasing would squeeze m a bit but considering because of future gains.

Do you feel like the COVID19 and the 2020 recession hurts a lot more than it did in 2008 (especially since we haven't reached the worst yet)?
SO exhausting having Trumpie parents. Mom asked about my friend with COVID: “is she hospitalized? Or dead?” And then got upset with ME when I said the questions were insensitive.
What is exit opps for tech consulting? I feel like I am stuck that I am not techie enough to become software engineer but can't be a manager because of the lack of experience.
Is anyone that is at MBB currently willing to do a mock case interview with me? It would be greatly appreciated. (Feel free to DM)
Hi All, Deloitte sent LOI with 8.5LPA+medical+0-10% Variable for Analyst designation and my current org package is 4.76LPA with 4YOE. How much can i bargain for extra ? and How can i ask ?
Has anyone ever used one of the online case coach services? I’ve got a final round for an MBB and am considering using one for additional perspective.
Senior 1 salary San Diego?
10w 🤰🏻, traveling at the moment and prenatal vitamins are really making me sick. I throw up whenever I take them, but that’s my only source of folic acid. Is it risky to not take them?
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
Hi! So I’ve just received an offer for a product owner role at Revolut, to be based in Berlin. I’ve heard about the toxic culture there, and that is something I’m hesitating about. Any opinions, positive and negative?
Not really a physical health question, but more mental health. I had a rough breakup after a long term relationship and I am having a hard time healing. I’m taking depression meds, but still having a hard time. Anyone have any tips to heal?
I got fired from my job today as an analyst. I felt I was wrongly and unjustly fired. My manager and I did not get along. How long will it take to get another job in Manhattan?
Do agencies that put the most emphasis on taking care of their people (hiring, good management, no assholes, good salaries) turn out the best work?
Delta 🐠: if you have a first class ticket, can you bring a guest you are traveling with into the Delta Lounge? Travel companion doesn’t have a first class ticket but has platinum status. Thanks!
Trying to get a 45 y/o sibling in to consulting (was an entrepreneur prior in the restaurant industry). No college degree but willing to bust his butt to learn. Books/online courses recommended pls
The waiting after you interview is the absolute worst. It's hard to judge how well you did. I doubt they make calls past 5pm on a Friday, right?
Recruiter reached out saying I will be receiving an offer and wanted to get my comp expectation. I gave a reasonable expectation based on level of the role. Recruiter said that’s too high. I politely mentioned that I’m happy to work with what the comp team gets back with as I really like the role. They said they will submit my paperwork by end of the day. That was Tuesday. Haven’t heard back since. Does it take this long or they slotted someone else for the role during this timeframe?
Interviewing for MIT Sloan Fellows MBA (1 year program) shortly. 10YOE and joining MBB in a couple of months, post-MBA level role. Reading some previous FB posts disparaging the SF program and feeling a bit downhearted about it. Are Sloan Fellows really looked down on by the normal (2 year) Sloan MBA program? Are there better alternatives for a 1 year MBA? MIT has been a dream for a while but it’s kind of like being told your baby is ugly…
