NYC = always overdress. Then show up all sweaty.

Thanks fam 🙏 suit and tie then

I showed up to my google interview in nyc in business casual (tucked shirt into jeans) and my interviewer had a hoodie on and jeans. If I wore a suite and tie, I think it would’ve been fairly awkward

Can’t answer your question but.. how long have you been in consulting / what’s the role?

Always

Always

Black tie

What did everyone else wear during the previous interviews? I always err on the side of my suit (at Deloitte some co-workers saw me out for a run and exclaimed in shock "you do have knees"). But for startups I sometimes leave the tie and jacket at home if I think it will be too much for them.

I wore a full suit in August to an interview in Midtown. Took a cab there to avoid sweating it out on the train. Totally worth it. When I conduct interviews, I don't knock people for underdressing, but a lot of people do.

I have been in management consulting for 2.5 years.. m&a group

I was just about to weigh in again. I've never felt uncomfortably overdressed in a suit and tie. Especially in an interview. I have however felt very uncomfortable dressed down when unexpectedly meeting a client. The first day in months I wear a company t-shirt and Levi's to the office and I get pulled into a C level meeting. Never worn less than a suit to work since.

FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴

Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
