Has anyone heard of a colleague leaving B4 assurance to be an HR manager or director? The only route that I can think of to make this possible would to be heavily involved with EBP audits and firm recruiting.

2nd year Big 4 consultant interviewing for a 2 year analyst program at a private investment/private equity firm. Role at first will be split 40-40-20 between Operations, Investor Relations, and Investment Team. Being marketed to be as a "rotation" Good exit? Don't want to take PE for the sake of PE, I want it to have legitimately transferable skills in modeling, valuation, investment with MBA almost certain after 2 years. Concerned I'd get "stuck" on portfolio monitoring

30 m ny/nj. US citizen. Moved as a teenager. INTJ. Single since I figured I’m not fighting the biological clock and have all the time in the world to meet someone and get settled. Things changed after I watched Akshay’s mom (Indian Matchmaking) tell him even 25 is too late and not marrying somehow messes up lives of people around him. While the show was staged, there might be truth to the latter part. Looking for F in ny/nj. Personality: NOT Aparna. NOT Nadia but def more Nadia than Aparna.🙏

Would it make any sense to lateral from an Operations role at a BB to a RFA analyst role at B4 after I’ve already done 1.5 years as an analyst at the BB? Or would it make more sense to stick it out in Ops to a AVP role? Trying to figure out which one will look better on the profile when I start applying for MBAs.

Started in big law in April (haven’t even been in the office yet, other than during interviews). My group is extremely busy. We get large assignments with 1-day turnarounds during the workday, at night and on the weekends. I don’t think I have left my apt without my laptop since starting. I am constantly anxious about going anywhere/out to eat/making weekend plans. Any advice on setting boundaries in this wfh environment? I’ve noticed a pattern of fake deadlines. Any advice on dealing with this?

A good friend had to cancel her wedding this year cause covid but with the virus relatively under control in NYC, they decided to move ahead with a socially distanced, small wedding ceremony of just 20 friends (in a tent outdoors) and only 2-4 ppl per table. Masks required. I am living with my parents right now and debating if I should go or not. The couple was really understanding and did say they would not be offended if I chose not to go. Thoughts?
