Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.

Anyone interested or successfully exited to sales or bizdev in MedTech/HIT? What kind of jobs should I look for with MBA, Big 4 and hospital finance/rev cycle background?

Fine with taking a paycut to try a new challenge and for the potential compensation down the road!
M&A analytics at B4 or A&M. Associate level
Which Partner should you give your notice to at B4? Do you start with the highest, like region sub service line leader or just the highest you have a good relationship with, like a local or area partner?

So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?
My husband and I were watching the LuLaRich documentary and he pointed out the the big 4 firms are very similar to MLM pyramid schemes. 😆🤔🧐
Hi everyone, quick question: SO and I were applying to some home loan together and he asked what my date of birth was so he could enter it in. Is this normal or does it just show that they don’t care? We’ve been together for 5 years now. Thanks! I’m leaning towards the latter so slightly hurt lol how would you feel?
I switched jobs and I’m stuck doing boring, tactical briefs that don’t require real strategic thinking. I love qual research and connecting the dots with things happening in culture. Anyone have any leads on strategist/senior strategist jobs in NY that I can escape to before I become a hack?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
Polling time: Has anyone recently got Administrative Processsing when trying to renew your H1B visa? If so, how long did it take to get it cleared? Try to assess if it is worth the risk to renew.
When I know that I can expense the airplane wi-fi but never have and assume it's out of policy so I don't have to be bothered for two hours...
I am newly in a wheelchair and am unable to find clear information on the ADA website about what my job is required to do. I’ve talked with my Union Rep and they are checking. I’m requesting to be on a 504 plan, but I have no idea if they are required to add handicapped entrances or not. I know I have to scan my badge to use the button, but trying to scan my badge, open the door, and not drop anything seems a bit unattainable to me at the moment. Anyone have some insight or dealt with this?

Understandably, there is a bias towards BTC and ETH. While the alt coins are more risky (Link, Cardano, XLM, Matic, loop, etc.) their price is much more reasonable. That’s why I don’t understand why people say “I will only buy BTC and ETH”. That seems short sighted when you can put at least 10% in alt coins and hit it big if they take off. It doesn’t have to be a large allocation yet people are hesitant. This comes from a new crypto investor. Not financial advice.
What's your take on "fake/scam" award ads? I think they're fine as long as they solve a real business problem. Also a great way to do good work when you aren't blessed with a client like BK/Nike/...
