For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
Recommendations on best int’l travel credit card? Back story: I’ve had a Chase Freedom credit card for years. I want to upgrade and have been thinking about Sapphire, but I have a ton of international travel planned for next year and want to make sure that one is worth it. Do you think getting a credit card that waives foreign transaction fees is worth it when looking at int’l cards? I hear good things about Capital One, but it feels weird to change banks for some reason 🥴

Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.
Did I mess up my first round? Recruiter set up team match call. I haven’t had any other interviews. I didn’t have much in the description so focused my initial interest on program management (that was the title of the interviewer). Turns out role is more strat and ops. I have experience in both (more strat) but interviewer said to think on where I want to focus as he has openings for both types of roles. I’m worried I messed up because I said I wanted to do program management…
I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?

My team has started ignoring my messages. I’m not sure what I did; I’ve been getting good feedback on my performance, I don’t message excessively often, and I don’t think I’ve done anything to cause social discomfort. The project is busy, but honestly workloads have been lighter than they used to be because we brought in additional resources, so that doesn’t explain the shift in communication styles. I used to feel like a useful team member but now I feel like an annoyance. What should I do?
Does your baby drink more milk when away from you? I am WFH and pumping and breastfeeding. Sometimes nanny gives baby the bottle and then baby wants / sees me and nurses after. I pump afterwards but only get like 1 oz (since she drank a full bottle). So basically, baby needed another 4 oz on top of breastfeeding. On the weekend baby drinks from me and doesn’t need more milk. Baby is 10 months. I have a freezer stash but don’t want to reduce supply too much.
Just reading up on the new X1 credit card and honestly both relieved and flabbergasted it took us this long to get here. There are some things I’m kinda unsure about but over all it seems like it will really help. Love it. Just signed up but the waitlist is already running long *sigh* even with a code..
