My Mom is traveling first time with me to India and I want her to feel the luxury and all benefits of United Airlines. If anyone has Global do you mind upgrading Mom's seat? Would be really appreciated :-)
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?
I want to confirm, Canadian with 1 shot (second scheduled for fall). I can travel to Greece with a negative PCR test? This is what I see in the guidelines but want to check against others’ experience. Will see if I can get a second vaccine before then but can’t count on it.
What is the tipping etiquette on the free platinum breakfast in a JW Marriott? The server just gets coffee / orange juice and you serve yourself. It is an overpriced buffet that I would never dine in.
Just got an offer to work someplace else. Pay, PTO, medical and 401k seem good. What else could I try to negotiate?
Seeking portfolio advice. 23 years old- 95k comp, 20k currently in market through the most basic Schwab index funds and Vanguard ETF’s, already max out 401k & IRA. My returns over the past year have been meager. I want to take on more risk and pick more concentrated investments. Whatever I go with, I want to hold them for the long run with no intention to sell. Any advice?
Fish in restructuring: How many hours are you charging per week since COVID? When do you expect to travel again?
My job was affected by COVID. I’m have a T20 MBA, closing in on two final round interviews one for a well know pharma consulting firm and the other for F 500 healthcare company as a regional ops director. I like both companies equally but looking to taking a shot at MBB in the next two years. Any advice?
For anyone who picks their 401k/IRA investments like me (ie whatever “sounds good”) - recommend Blooom as a quick free sanity check & analysis on how your portfolio is doing: https://www.blooom.com/r/yb331r
Do you think getting an MBA significantly helps if you want to transition to PM (product management) from tech consulting? Trying to weight the costs and benefits, especially since they're so expensive and know it can be done without one
Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
Hey! — one of our portfolio companies in the healthcare space is looking for someone to build out its customer success function. Looking for senior manager/principal, healthcare exp required, dm me!
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Can someone rank all marriot properties for me. I don't use marriot and don't know the different between a Fairfield inn, residence inn, courtyard, etc.

Anyone familiar with Simon Kutcher - in deciding which office to apply for, are the projects region specific/any emphasis towards a particular industry across the offices? What about the size and office culture?
For people managers, will you choose to downgrade to individual contributors at FAANG or continue being a people manager in traditional industries (e.g., finance, healthcare)?
🐠: Going to start traveling again soon, and don't have status on any airlines. Which airline do you recommend I use, considering ease of boarding, available overhead space, etc. I'll be going to CLT
What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Is there a hiring freeze for EY PI-Finance?
Darden vs Yale SOM full time program? No dollars at both. - Location Agnostic - MBB/ Product Management at FAANG - loved the vibe and culture at both schools
Is change management a skill set used by industry? I want to position myself to have options in a few years, but I just don't see that as being an FTE function.
If you were going to leave EY and wanted a similar culture but didn’t want to step down in terms of perceived brand, where would you go?
