Anyone traveling to Chicago this weekend for R1 Admit days? Are you still planning to go despite weather updates?
Whoa GME 🚀🚀
How much am I handicapping myself leaving my firm before being promoted and working a year as a senior? I’m going from staff to staff in industry getting like a 17% raise with performance based bonus up to 10%. I’m sure that raise is much lower than it would’ve been had I gotten another year of exp but I’m leaving mostly bc I’m so miserable in public. Will this decision really impact my career/salary growth all that much in the years to come?
Is it irresponsible to spend the 4th at a friend’s lake house in NH? I believe it will be less than 10 people, but wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a few more than that. I feel conflicted.
Anyone had a feeling they should do something crazy/illogical and it ended up working out for the good?
Is a bottle of wine consumed over a few hours all that bad? I polish one off easily and used to be horrified. But why? Just mildly buzzed (small woman for reference).

Is it more common now for people to have kids before the wedding reception (due to so many weddings being pushed back from covid)? Thinking about going to city hall first and getting married there, have a kid, and then figure out the ceremony part later
Alright ladies. The Wing. Is it worth it? It’s incredibly expensive, which leaves a weird taste in my mouth. I am privledged enough to be able to afford it, but it would definitely be an investment.
I thought my workday was over so I started drinking. But now a fire drill is happening and I’m not sober enough to work 😳

Currently being offered income partner at KPMG or director at Deloitte. I prefer Deloitte but they won’t budge to partner at this point. What would you do partners? Any advice?
Partners - As a consultant who should be in line for a manager promo in 2 years, what are the most important project leadership/management skills to develop? How do I begin building those skills now?
Do you use a financial advisor / wealth manager? Why or why not? At what point is this warranted?
I know some of you may not be old enough to answer a question like this, but any of you start your careers in the 80s? I ask this because during an internship I had a year ago I met an older guy who worked for the company I interned at who told me back in the day, the big 8 firms used to be way different. The partners would do coke in the office, they would go day drinking with the clients etc. I'm not sure if he was full of it or telling the truth. Does anyone know if it was like that?

KPMG partners, could you tell me what the implications are for taking 4 months maternity leave as a partner? I should be up for partner promotion next year and might be having a child as a partner. I'm guessing if you meet your targets, it doesn't really matter how much maternity leave you take as a partner but wanted to hear your thoughts on how parental leave (especially 4 months) affected your compensation, client relationships, teams, etc.
What percentage of questions you're asked are actually good questions? Assuming it's low... What do you wish we'd ask?

If it is not a reputable service, how would you go about seeking Board of Director positions?
Despite solidarity emails, the many vitriolic posts on here shows that our firms still have a long way to go to grapple with systemic bias. How will leadership reconcile this to take concrete action?
We always hear about needing to sell and hitting sales targets. But I feel like no one really talks about those targets. Can anyone shed light to the range of selling targets by level before Partner and after making Partner?
How does missing or hitting those targets affect your year(s) and trajectory? How do you go about getting new business? How do you maintain anchor accounts?
Not asking for specific numbers as they may vary by firm and may be confidential, but looking for ranges.
Can Partners and Principal suggest how does one approach in convincing one of you to join your group or practice. What would you sway you the most ... or the “right” way
