My 23rd fall tax season and I still can’t get myself into the next project/deadline until 9/15 is fully buttoned up….Today I’m part sloth, while still attacking the problems that arise.

I know we have a commitment to the client and are expected to work as long as it takes to get the job done. But why don’t we write and sign contracts that are realistic? It feels like cheating

Had 6 interviews for a director role at a biotech company 2 weeks ago, ghosted by the recruiter.. any advice? what should I do?
Better for long term career goal and happiness: Large CPG analytics, or post-MBA consultant at boutique? I am extremely torn. I value work-life balance very much, is all consulting horrible for it? If I want to work in product development/marketing long term (I love idea of food/bev but not married to it), does it make more sense to just get right into the CPG world with great WLB? Or is it potentially better to take a role in a brand/marketing boutique then exit later when burnt out?
Time to play how quick can I click through the client's required trainings. Really pushing for this to be added to the Consultant Olympics of 2017
What are your thoughts on exiting to a Manager role at Accenture Strategy vs. DigitalBCG “project lead”? I eventually want to exit to a FAANG and do something around Business/Product Strategy or Product Management like most consultants 😂. I would say Business Strategy is probably more realistic with my work experience. I more than 5 years of experience and do not have an Ivy League MBA. Thanks in advance!
How do I get my old project to leave me alone? I rolled off, but they keep calling me in for little things. My new project leads are okay with it for now, but I want it to end. What to do?
I recently interviewed for a role at Goldman Sachs and completed all the levels. After the final interview HR sent me a link to fill out the Compensation Questionnaire and requested for related documents. Next day, another HR called me for some clarification and told me that they are going to request for some approvals. Does this mean I can expect an offer letter? If yes, how long will that process take?

Any organization does consulting interview prep, esp. case interview prep? Trying to switch job into better consulting firms. Never done case interview before, so need some guidance. Thanks!
For those of you who got covid after hearing someone around you was exposed - were you more keen to pay attention for symptoms and if so, what were some early signs you were going to be sick too? I was exposed over the weekend and can’t stop questioning every little thing. I realize as each day passes, the likelihood of being sick decreases but I’m still paranoid as so many people I know have gotten sick over this past month

Gary Vee took credit for that baby nut commercial on Twitter. Love me some Gary Vee but not so much Baby Nut.
I am starting to question my existence in this world. I have a nice job, decent salary, i work out and eat healthy, maintain my health, read 3 to 4 books every month, dont have any personal commitments (single), in my early 30s and things cant be any better. Of course with the exception that i had a real bad break-up with my fiancé 6 months ago. And i dont have any symptoms of depression, but there are days when i just feel like what is all this for?

New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
Extension of Marriott status!! Rejoice!
My SO and I have tried to conceive for 3 years and are now working with specialists. However, my career isn’t progressing like I hoped. Do I try to hold tight @ a role where I know the role expectations and insurance? Or do I try to job search while also trying to conceive?

What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4). Started with 1.9million ledger and grew to 2.7million with pipeline worked from past years that turned to wins. The pandemic hasn’t allowed much time or travel to refill the pipeline. Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
