Anyone else? I have a full set up (multiple monitors, standing desk, the whole nine) in my home office, but as often as I can (like when I have a webinar or training to watch) I like to sit on the couch with just the laptop and get the full benefits of puppy snuggles 🥰🥰

How do I improve my chances of being contacted by recruiters/appear on searches on LinkedIn? I work at B4 but never get contacted. My profile is set to “looking for opportunities” so I don’t get it.

Any Big 4 or MBB Healthcare (Provider) folks here and care to share their experiences (e.g., recruiting, hiring process, length / types of engagements etc.)?
Silly question: What happens when your 401k contribution starts to exceed the $19000 limit for 2019? Will the company know to stop contributing? Does the company match stop?
Hey Uncle D, I have to admit something. When I file "snack" in my expense report, I actually meant to file "alcohol". My bad. No harm, no foul, correct?
Is a CFA valuable in consulting? Given it takes 3 years and my firm doesn’t reimburse until it is completed
My team recently had a presentation delivered on BLM by a black female analyst. She was quite impassioned but also professional in my view. My partner thinks that 1) she needs to tone down her message and 2) she doesn't offer any solutions for the firm, and wants to feed it back. I think 1 is tone-policing and 2 isn't an analyst's job. For context, I'm based in London (largely removed from US politics/social issues etc) and am a non-black minority. My B4 firm has ~2 black partners out of 800.

Anything to keep in mind if leaving to join the client? It is a different team and division than the one that I worked for.
My account partner is doing a terrible job and will be getting fired—timeline TBD. Given we are living in a pandemic, I want to give them a heads up to start job hunting. How inappropriate is that? How could I do it?
I know this has been asked before but, MBB folks, is there a path from Big 4 Audit to MBB consulting, without the Ivy league MBA
Let’s talk second and third jobs? How many jobs do you have to make ends meet outside of the classroom?
Going back to work in a couple weeks after being on maternity leave. Already sad and upset at the thought of leaving my little one. How do you cope those first days and weeks back to work?
Anyone here take a coding bootcamp and switched to a more technical role either within the big 4 or outside of it?
I’m expecting a job offer tomorrow and they let me know today that they have no 401k matching program (?????). Is it greedy for me to bump up my salary expectation $2-3k to make up for it?
Client's assistant won't shut up about buying a villa in Tuscany. Bitch, I know how much you make. A weekend at The Holiday Inn would be stretching it. #backdowntoearthplease
