Scoffed at this earlier today but I’m about 5 hours in now. Will continue watching tomorrow and start my shoe rehab at the weekend

Shine them every once in a while with quality products. Medaille d'Or from Saphir. Everything scratches, but with goed shoes, you can keep a layer of polish over the leather and keep the leather in good shape.


Are they leather? If so just polish them.


Throw them out...ohhhhh... you mean the scratches


Depends where you bought them from... some places may let you return or you can look at sites like therealreal to sell them off

I just started wearing them 2 days ago....less scratches more scuffs

Anything from Saphir.

Do y’all use cream polish or wax? Also for brown shoes should get brown polish or neutral? Need to get rid of scuffs

I use neutral wax on brown shoes and it works a treat

Late 20s female looking for advice on getting in shape over the course of about 1 year. For context, I’m not in horrible shape or overweight, but overall am not that happy with my body and can stand to lose 5-10 pounds and tone up overall. My eating is relatively healthy but I tend to struggle on weekends with treating myself to cocktails and pizza. I enjoy working out but can’t find the discipline to make it a routine. (Continued)


Partners, senior associates - why do you phrase things as “what about this? Why havent we done this?” Isnt it obviously bc nobody thought about it? Why not just direct and guide your team to do something as opposed to ask that awkward question and make the team scramble to pretend like it’s in process

I was recently promoted from Senior to Supervising Senior and received a 42% pay increase bringing me to $105k. I have roughly 10 years of experience, 5.5 of those years in the Big 4. The reason I am still at the Senior level is because I took a break from IT Audit from 2018-2021, with this considered I still feel like $105k is low for my level of experience, based on a lot of the compensation comments in this bowl. My locale is Austin, TX so also a high cost of living. Any thoughts?


Any good movie / netflix show recommendations?


Where would you say the line would be for going advisory @ big 4 to an investment bank? Obviously depends on the firm but would you say you wouldn’t go to a firm under a certain size? I.e. I would love to hear your thoughts on if I should go from b4 to a boutique with ~15 people?


Who here moved from a large enterprise to a medium sized business? I just got presented with a compelling offer. I’m excited for less politics, but might be dealing with more ambiguity. Would love to hear anecdotes. Thanks

I’ve been with my organization a little over a year and we’ve had major transitions and turnover that took me from starting as a recruiter coordinator to a hr generalist, and now an interim hr manager. I have a masters degree in industrial organizational psychology and while I am new to HR have professional work experience in other fields-military, teacher, training specialist. I love what I do. Should I apply for the hr manager position with only a year of hr work history? Do I have a chance?

Female working in IBD here. All the junior women are super trendy (wide leg trousers, chunky loafers and heavy sweaters) and all the senior women are super formal (high heels, tight colored dresses, try Googling “corporate women’s wear”).
