Completely depends on the bank. Generally would discuss with a manager with decision making power. Best bet it to make it sound like your main focus is changing location and having a good reason for it. I moved from NY to Chicago, team was supportive even though it meant switching teams. Didn’t take offense to it because they knew I had my reasons for wanting to be in Chicago.

There is a reason the metrics are for joiners / movers / leavers. Managers are measured on internal mobility.

Hi! Everyone, I am a PhD turned consultant with 2 years at big 4. I was wondering if there are openings at MBB that I can apply to? I am a molecular biologist by training and do life sciences consulting in the cell and gene therapy domain.

Big decision. Took a job at a small org/higher level with shot to GC to develop my strategic/team building skills. Turns out that’s not the role. I’m micromanaged, under-utilized, & stagnating- no real development, but it’s SUPER easy, good pay, nice folks. Recruiter called &, Hello, offer. Different industry, more pay, work, development, opportunities to grow into F500 parent. I know I should be satisfied with decent $ & an easy job. What’s wrong with me? What to do?

Would you be bothered if a colleague (peer or subordinate) went on vacation to the Caribbean for Thanksgiving, then decided to stay there and work remotely while his wife continued to vacation for another 2 weeks? I am the wife and I'm trying to get an idea of whether this would hurt my husband at work. He has been working while on vacation, so he has already showed that he can work. But he only started in August.

Let this marinate: First-year associates at Cravath and DPW in NYC are making the same money as their peers at Holland & Knight in, let’s say, Jacksonville. Makes you wonder how much the NY firms could really afford to pay. Also makes you want to beat the system, FIRE for 8 years in a secondary market making NYC money, and retire at 35. 😂
