It’s been great. I’m a product analyst for a public unicorn. Started a few months ago after ~1.5 YOE in consulting. Challenging work, 40 hour weeks or less. Amazing flexibility and benefits

Unpopular opinion. I’m a young woman of color. I think we’re all focusing on race when it comes to violence in America when the issue is actually with men. Men of all colors have been terrorizing America yet everyone is arguing about white supremacy.

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.

Any thoughts on negotiating more vacation time with a new company? Manager leaving Accenture for a specialty firm in Public Sector. Two firms competing for me have offers on the table. The one I like told me they just don't negotiate vacation and everyone from the C-suite down gets three weeks. Losing two weeks a year of vacation sounds awful! Any thought on negotiating? I have a pretty strong position right now. I'm open to options. Though they kind of already nixed the idea of unpaid PTO.

Why don’t we put those that are unvaccinated on an unofficial lockdown? Those of us that did our part should not suffer for the ignorant. Why don’t localities mandate using vaccination cards as a means of entry and deny those that aren’t. I’m tired of having my life upended by the ignorance of those who believe in right wing, scientifically unverified talking points.
