Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
CSR card holders: are the 1.5x travel redemptions actually good options for travel? Considering it but I can go with regional bank cc and elect 3x pts on dining as well
Any B4 partner on here care to explain how firms are having record years in revenue, while also cutting down on the massive travel expenses from past years, but still managed to take away bonuses, raises, and even some people’s job? Genuinely curious as to how this could possibly be justified.
Dealing with a passive aggressive client w/ fragile masculinity and the power combo of "needs to be the alpha in every conversation" and "usually doesnt know what he's talking about". Pray for me.
How does anyone make transition into PM if the current company/industry I am in does not have this opportunity? I really want to make this move but it seems like other posts are against taking courses/MBA to make this transition. Help!
For those companies / roles with unlimited pto, how does a payout work if you leave and /or are laid off? Receive nothing or some set amount?
Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses. I am trying to get some ideas to incorporate this concept using multiple bank accounts/ cards. Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?
660k net worth at mid - late 30s still feel insecure due to no access to affordable Health Insurance. Health is ok, some dental issues. But, can we really call this a free country if one health issue can bring you on road? What are the options for health insurance if you try a new job and get fired?
I was gifted with 4 new desktop computers for my classroom! I teach 3rd and 4th grade learning support! Any suggestions for free and/or inexpensive academic websites?
I am so conflicted about socializing during COVID. My friend invited me to a dinner with two new people (who work at the big 4) at an outdoor restaurant. Where I live, the COVID rate is ~3%. My friend invited the group chat and the two other girls shamed my friend for socializing in a small group during COVID. My friend group won’t agree to be in a pod and won’t meet unless everyone is 6 feet apart. It’s going to get cold soon and I feel like I’m going to be lonely if I don’t make new friends ☹️
Considering quitting my 16 hour/day job to free up time to go all in for prepping for a Google Manager position. Good idea or bad idea?
I love the idea of working in venture capital or start-ups, but cannot stand the people. I find the culture extremely performative, and the people incredibly self-important. Anyone else in the same boat?
Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.
How is the BCG Gamma group? I applied to the AI and consultant positions. It seems really interesting and curious if anyone can share some insight to it? Not sure my chances of getting an interview lol....
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
Production, lighting experts or just anyone who’s figured it out. Tips & tricks for home office lighting (for my face) for video calls? Depending on time of day, my face is either over exposed super glaring white or dark shadows look like a hostage in a closet. I have two big screens in front on my and I think computer glare makes it worse. Advice welcome!
Is it worth pursuing the Specialist consultant track at McKinsey? A recruiter reached out to me regarding a role in healthcare. Currently have 5 YOE, no MBA, am a SC at D.
