We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
Any quick fixes on burnouts? Have been working at least 200% since September last year. I have multiple big deadlines all due today, and I have been writing slides while crying for the last 2 hours – it’s just slow and painful. Need to pull myself together and just do the work because well, I need the job, and in this economy no one else is hiring.
I currently work as an APM at a FAANG company but recently received an offer to join an MBB. I’m very excited about the role but didn’t realize I’d need to take a pay cut when I applied (~100k base + ~20k bonus + ~60k equity vs. 90k base + 10-20k bonus). Considering that I currently work 40-60 hours/week, I’ll be making significantly less per hour at the MBB. I’m very interested in the opportunity but also don’t want to make a poor financial decision early in my career. Thank you for your time!
My last fee flights on Delta have been miserable (I.e. delays, RE-routes, going back to gate, etc.). Anyone else experiencing the same? I’m thinking about switching to another airline

Fellow fish I'm interested in learning from others who have moved out of consulting into a pure sales role whether it is tech or other product. What were the biggest surprises to you? How is WLB? Are there concerns around the steady income to a shift in a lot more variable pay?
A Facebook recruiter reached out to me a few days ago regarding an Application Security Engineering position and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the interview process for AppSec position? Or ways to prepare ? TIA!
I'm about to interview for a VP position at a startup but have never managed before. Is it smart, as a Black woman, to ask directly about support for mangers (ie supporting me is one of my reports didn't want to listen to me, etc)? Or maybe I can ask but very vaguely and indirectly? This is a 2nd (3rd, 4th & 5th over the course of the next 2 days) interview that includes the founders of the company.
How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/
How often does everyone check in with their project leadership specifically about their performance on a project? I’m a recent new hire and when I first proposed scheduling recurring check-ins my senior manager seemed surprised so I was curious what the standard practice is. For context, I’m a Consultant in HC consulting.
Anyone in the Big 4 corporate finance / investment banking groups willing to DM. I have several questions about the position. TIA
In the second stage of an interview process that involves a take home project that is due when you want. Recruiter said to not spend more than 3-4 hours on it. Got it a day ago and planning to work on it and submit on Monday. Should i stick to the three hour time frame or does it look bad to put in more work?

Would you let your husband take leave and watch your 3 month old full time for a few months when you go back to work? Or would you hire a nanny/daycare?
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
What’s the Capgemini Invent compensation range for senior consultant? Glassdoor range is huge. For ref 7 YEO, would be looking for £75k - could that be expected?
How many of you stay in corporate apts vs hotels? Just signed a corporate apt lease in a modern luxury building with great amenities. Same airfare and meal policy. Benefits outweigh losing the points?
