When did Marriott get so cheap? I’m staying at a Westin hotel in Houston and the free breakfast for ambassadors includes coffee, toast and water. They also charged me $10 a day for a microwave. I’ve never been charged for a microwave at any hotel… EVER!
Any perspective on m&a with regards to the current situation? Is M&A going to be the most hit? What are people and especially people on Visa doing as backup plans?
Hi 🐠. I need your help please. What’s the best strategy you’ve used (that works) to book cheap flights? I hear a lot of things like: use incognito when searching for flights, best day to book a flight is on tuesdays, etc. I feel none of this is true. Toughts?

Systemwide upgrades on AA: They have to be on flights that say "American Airlines" when you buy them/can't be used for a partner like British Airways, right? Looking at a Europe trip, want to clarify

I’m not sure if this allowed but I have a couple of interviews coming up and I’m having a hard time figuring out how much to ask for Experience 3 years of paid social experience, Mostly B2B, enterprise and up clients. Been promoted pretty consistently. In SF. I’ve been told 90-95 is within range from agency recruiters, but this job is in house for a big tech firm ( and would be something I’m super stoked on) am I crazy for asking 110? Or is that to big a jump? Thank you fellow wizards
Is now a good time to start at Deloitte? Or are more layoffs expected in the near future? Have an offer for human capital comm. for consultant level and recruiter is recommending starting on Sept 1
For those of you who chose to have kids 2 years later OR sooner than you planned, what was your decision and reasoning? Currently deciding between 27 and 29 to start trying for a first child.
Does anyone know if M7 schools offering deferred MBA admission forbid you from applying to other MBA programs down the line if accepted? e.g. say you get accepted to Kellogg/Columbia deferred programs, but want to apply to H/W/S in 2-3 years - are there any issues with this? I’ve anecdotally heard it’s not a problem and you just give up any non-refundable fees deposited but curious to hear if someone knows
EY GDS job confirmed. Got selected for a senior consultant 1 role. HR is saying that I can get maximum of 20Lpa fixed and 10% variable, no JB. Are they low balling me? I am joining a supply chain consulting role
I am trying to get outta consulting but I can only get consulting firm offers because all the other industry jobs drop me after the technical interview bc consulting hasn't taught me any technical skills besides PPT and Excel 😭😭😭
I’m taking a few calls for new opps at a couple different firms and wanted to get a pulse on feelings from folks who actually work there to help me narrow it down. Agencies are: Weber Shandwick, Ruder Finn, FleishmanHillard and a smaller boutique called LifeSci Communications. From The sounds of other threads on here, I’m nervous about WS. Looking for a read on Work/Life balance, how well staffed they are, avg pay range (VP level), PTO/holidays/benefits, etc. So, how do you like working there?
Nate, your wife’s father in law is your DAD
PMP worth it?
For all the dads out there: how are you not ashamed to be the father this career forces you to be? It's a daily struggle for me and I do not think it is worth it.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Which advanced non-MBA degrees are the most common at your firm? If recruited from a grad program with a non-MBA degree, did you start at the same level, salary, compensation track as an MBA recruit?
What’s the typical salary for Consultants at Deloitte? And does it differ by practice? If consultants at Deloitte don’t mind throwing out their offers, would be greatly appreciated!
Five years of experience as a litigation associate (Vault 50 firm). Good grades from a T20 law school. Good reviews. Some meaningful relationships with clients but this has been an area of weakness for me. Generally, extremely burned out & feeling disconnected from my work. Feeling lost generally re: my career. Looking to maybe go in house, I don’t know. I know nothing about in house or how to go about getting such a position. Advice appreciated!
Any remote opportunities for Internal & External Communications with 7+ years of experience? Kindly DM me.
Any pen testing or red teaming jobs (cleared or commercial)? I have some practice in HTB or THM but I don’t have OSCP or GPEN. I’d think I could find a role easily especially since Deloitte has been hiring pen testers that had no certs or experience. If they are hiring people with little experience I think would have a chance with another firm or company. I’d prefer a cleared role to keep my TS clearance but I’m open to anything that pays good and will help train me and grow my experience!
Well Adele's full album is now on Spotify... Don't worry I definitely won't be crying at the client site today.
i know everyone says not to quit without an offer… but can someone who actually did this tell me the best/worst of it all and maybe how long it took to find your next role? was it significantly harder than trying to balance a soul sucking job while interviewing?
