What are some of your favorite Breastfeeding friendly work clothes?? Trying to balance warmth for winter and functionality...style too but given covid wfh am less concerned with looking super nice.
Has anyone left a job where you made a really high salary because you were unhappy? I make over 300k with stocks as a product designer right now which I can’t imagine making anywhere else...But I am unhappy with the design culture and toxic leadership. If you left somewhere similar, do you regret it?
I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?
I have a final round interview with a hedge fund in the NYC area. Approximately $15bn AUM and 40 employees. I am meeting with the founder of the firm and was told we would be discussing comp. I just graduated from college this year and the role is business development associate. The hiring manager described it as a front office role. What salary range should I be expecting going into the meeting? What about bonus?
Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
My company has pit a salary increase freeze in place, but I’m starting to hear about a few people getting promoted privately. Are these people most likely getting a title promo only?
🐠's need Advise. I am tempted to move to another big 4 for better pay. Considering speaking to PPED regarding my compensation before making a decision. As a senior 2 earning 89K. Is that standard?
I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
I got a 2nd job offer after formally accepting another (both start in 2.5 weeks). Job Offer 2 salary is a few grand more than Offer 1(already acceted) AND pays 100% of health/dental/vision premiums, which will save me another few thousand a year. Both jobs are in a city notorious for it's high cost-of-living (my partners job is moving us from the midwest to SF this summer), so several thousand dollars difference *WILL* be noticeable. Is it too late to use Offer 2 to negotiate Offer 1?
Just heard coronavirus found in Thanksgiving Tower, Comerica Tower, and BOA Tower in Dallas. Downtown has fallen. Time to make like a tree and...
Not to beat a dead horse - anyone get a cheaper rent lease renewal due to covid? Have people had rent go up?? How can we bargain here?
Remember when COVID was a thing?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Not against Texas Dems breaking quorum but it does look like the media is biased. Edited ty MD1
I saw a post about getting the vaccine and many responses. This article has good info about the vaccine I believe. Just read it. https://www.advisory.com/en/daily-briefing/2020/04/13/covid-young-people
My H-1B visa transfer to D got an RFE. How long does it usually take for the BAL team at D to respond? I know the timeline can vary based on the complexity of the RFE but just wanted to understand a general timeline. Did anyone else get an RFE when they moved to D? What happened in your case? Did it finally get approved or was it rejected? Deloitte

Has anyone ever completed the firms consulting training boot camp with them? What did you think of it? Esp for people at MBB now do you think it prepared you for the life and problem spaces here?
Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
Is your company doing annual raises this year? If so, what’s the typical annual raise (%)?
Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me. Should I be concerned (I.e., will this reflect poorly on me, come review time? Will I have dug myself too much of a hole if I keep burning my non-billable hours?) I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.

Middle school teachers, what are the “must-have” books in your classroom libraries? I am a special ed resource reading teacher looking for some books that will make my kids WANT to read more!
How do schools feel about you jumping from a management consulting firm to startup if that startup fails badly after you join? I’m sure you could spin it as a learning experience but will that really work when you’re being compared against people from MBB/PE/FAANG?
Are there any meaningful certifications or learning modules I can do while on the bench? Been on here a week and need to charge a code other than G&A or else 💀
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
