Anybody get a GSB interview invite and assigned an interviewer already? Wondering if we have 7 days in which to have the interview or 7 days in which to settle on a date?
Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).

She told she need to take senior management dessicion on that. She told that she will call me about the status next day whether they have selected or rejected my offer.

Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children

Hopefully not too many can answer this... How much time did you take off after the passing of a child? ...Did you go back at 100% when you did go back?
what do you wear on production when you’re pregnant? my wardrobe is very black and utilitarian and I don’t wear dresses. also, since everything has been remote, the team is about to find out I’m 7 months pregnant...
“A child really isn’ that expensive in the first 3-4 years” ~ Spouse 7 months ago. Our bank account after 7 months of pregnancy says otherwise. I’m excited to be a father and I want to be a good father, but there is zero chance this child is going to remember or even care what decorations we chose for the nursery. Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?

Really struggling with imposter syndrome & would appreciate any advice. I’ve been at the same company for 5 years and have gotten really good feedback/know my managers would fight for me if I tried to leave. Currently interviewing and feel like I’ve just fooled everyone at my current company because I get such anxiety speaking to my accomplishments and with the thought of case interviews. I feel like I wouldn’t be able to succeed anywhere but where I am now & the fear is keeping me here.

Would getting only "partially at next level" in whole leadership hold up your promotion to manager?
Anyone know what the typical sign on bonus for Accenture is at the manager level? Is there a range or is it pretty standard?
What does everyone do to stay fit during the pandemic and WFH? I've never had a consistent exercise routine but I want to start one, however I have a hard time making myself exercise in the morning so that doesn't help. Any pointers appreciated
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Super bummed - took my health seriously this year, lost 40 pounds, found my love for running again, and was preparing to post a PR marathon in a couple weeks. My first day of tapering and I suffered a grade 3 ankle sprain. Now that my sob story is over - how do I stay healthy and relatively fit while being immobile for a bit? Do I just really need to focus on diet? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
How are people dealing with burnout? I really loved my job (M&A, NYC). Now between the pandemic, zero respect for nights/weekends, constant 200+ hour months, oh and being a new mom - I just don’t see how I can live like this. The hard parts of BigLaw have gotten harder and all my ways of recharging are gone (travel, commiserating over beers, etc.) I’m dying and no end in sight.
Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
