So I just finished an interview round for a startup, and despite my better judgement, I built a model for measuring success of a marketing campaign - part of their ‘case exercise’ to be completed at home. They just let me know that they’re going with ‘other candidates’ and I realized I built them a reusable framework for free. 🤡
Hi all. Does anyone has any feedback what it's like to work at Fingerpaint? Wondering on culture, benefits, time off, atmosphere. Thank you in advance
Do you think it’s better to go to immediately go a firm that’s beyond your skillset or work your way up to that firm? For example, going to a T2 firm as an experienced hire having never done consulting without or starting at a smaller consulting firm and then going to T2/MBB?
Any recent Vermont Center H1B transfers? I am on business day 6 and calendar day 9 in premium processing and haven’t received an update. Any experiences regarding processing times?
I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture. If Deloitte is given 90, PwC might get something between 20-30 is what I feel. All they need is robots working for their tasks. I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC
Who is responsible for putting out all these "Welcome back America" ads? Is every media department unaware or ignorant to the country setting new records for new single-day increases in COVID cases?? Am I going insane???
Does the PWC Advisory Scholars program still exist? The recruiter said they had not heard of it. Any data points on acceptance rates or links to more info is appreciated.
Any McKinsey fishes had a subpar case interview in round 1 and still progress in the recruiting progress?(assuming other interviews were good)
McKinsey: Is there really someone at your firm who made partner in 4 years after completing their MBA?
I’m a Canadian on an F1 visa who just started at McKinsey in the US. Which ‘trusted traveler’ program should I go for (and am eligible for), e.g. TSA Pre Check, Clear?
Sometimes I feel like yelling at people "I'm growing two humans right now and I did XYZ faster and better. What's your excuse?" Other days I just want to curl up in bed because that's all I can handle. Unfortunately I can't do either because I don't want to sacrifice a promotion year in addition to my body by people's perception I won't be up to it.
How do you overcome the anxiety when a parent messages you angrily? I sent out letters to parents of kids who had a D or an F and offered some suggestions and this parent took it as me telling her what to do and insulting her.
How much do you keep in your checking acct?
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
