Anyone else just feeling really depressed and anxious? I’m a smart person but even doing the simplest task rn seems like a mountain. Interviews pausing, possible layoffs,&quarantine aren’t helping...
All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do? YOE-2.5
Hi interested if anyone has personal feedback/insight into "Baker Tilly (US)"? I have an opportunity lined up to interview with a Risk Advisory Partner for a lateral move (and faster promotion to Senior) and it seems their internal employee culture is good on paper. But I'm wanting to see if others have IRL experience with them? My main focuses that I'd like more info on are: Office/Team Culture, Client Management expectations, and Senior/Staff Support

LinkedIn sales strategy and operations associate interview coming up. Does anyone have any insight on the excel/sql assessment? What are the types of questions and what are they testing for?
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

Why are firms still so obsessed with geography? I applied to this firm’s Boston office because I loved the firm, culture, and practice, and half of my interview was about Boston. Sigh. I’m very much agnostic about my location, so it’s frustrating to have to have a reason other than hey Im very happy and willing to move for this job
Any MBB fish willing to do an informational interview? Would love to learn about your background, work experience at your firm, and WLB. Bonus points if you’re at the associate level (1-3YOE) & based in LA/SF so I can hear learn about your experience comparable to my own but open to anyone. Thanks in advance!!
How difficult (relatively) is it to recruit for an MBB London office from a T15 US MBA program compared to a US office? I know it's not done often, but is that mainly due to the salary difference?
Trying to determine if I’m off-base: 9ish yrs of exp (7 + 2 post MBA). Focus in healthcare strat and org change/transformation — when folks call I’ve been asking for $175K base but the roles have topped out at $150K base. These are director level roles in industry and health tech. Is $175K too high? I’m currently at a T2 strat firm…
Gibson Dunn: What are people’s thoughts on the quality of work, firm culture, diversity, and career opportunities?
Just received a text from a team member stating two missionaries that traveled through Tokyo were in my classroom teaching (private school). Said they hired a company to deep clean tonight. Thoughts?
I'm not a mom yet (don't kick me out of the group!) but have been going through fertility and IVF treatments for more than 6 months. I'm constantly having bloodwork, appointments and calls with the doc during working hours. Any advice on what I can and should tell my team about my health? They can tell I'm in and out of the doctor's office and I suspect they think I'm pregnant. Maybe it's being chock-full of hormone pills, but I'm sensitive about everyone thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
raise your hand if you love taco bell...yet find that naked egg taco to be the most disgusting thing ever advertised in fast food.
Heard that there will be an Instacart driver strike next week due to taking on tons of risk for low pay and no benefits. How will this impact you?
ZS Fishes - can anyone let me know a salary band for Consultant role at the LA office? Healthcare data analytics role. Also it'll be great if you can give some insights on benefits (401k, Healthcare, other benefits) Thanks! ZS Associates
Thoughts on INSEAD MBA? It looks like it is a really good programme. More on the ability to get a job back in the US? Also thoughts on other European MBAs (London Business School, Cambridge)?
Is it necessary to open a reimbursement account ? Just curious to see whether your reimbursements (mobile phone reimbursement) would be credited to your salary account in case a reimbursement account is not available.
PSA: never hire b4 & Accenture mc for anything that is close to strategy work. Just started at T2 strategy firm and it turns out we are cheaper than b4, lols. I would for sure hire t2 instead for better talent.

Why would a manager put you in “needs improvement” and no salary increase during annual planning but not give you an official performance improvement plan (PIP)?
Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) - Anyone have one of these ? Never heard of this until the other day when a financial planner mentioned it. He said it’s a better vehicle than 401K. I took what he said with a grain of salt because he was trying to acquire customers, but I haven’t heard anyone talk about it here. At a quick glance it seems pretty solid. Anyone have experience ? Pros/Cons ? Something to add on including the standard 401K, Roth, HSA, etc ?
I’m starting to think regardless where you go (agency side) the work will be there along with the politics and bs. Should we always base our next move with compensation as number 1 deciding factor?
Feeling depressed because I just did a more realistic budget calculation for a March trip to Spain. B/w the need for refundable flight and hotels (I normally do airbnb and don’t care about refundable flights, and I don’t have enough miles and can only get us partial coverage at 1 hotel out of 2) plus covid tests, the trip is about $1000-2000 more/pp than I anticipated. I don’t think my SO’s gonna want to spend the money to go..Should probs look into backup intl locations 😭
