That crazy EY manager post has got me wonder which places with robust and dynamic economies relatively has the best working culture. Western Europe promotes work-life balance but seems like there is lots of labor inflexibility and institutional stagnation. East Asia arguably more dynamic but stereotypically overworking. Or the American or the Australian etc culture? Any takes? Obviously subjective since we all prioritize and value factors differently
I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/
Should I use Vanguard or Fidelity for IRA Roth account? Would just buy mostly ETF and stocks in there. Already have my 401K in Fidelity, and wondering if there is any risk at all putting all retirement money in Fidelity, or should I put my IRA in Vanguard.

Have an interview later this week for Deloitte's Finance & Enterprise Performance group. Would anyone be able to share insights on what to expect from the technical case? What level of preparation?
I have interview with QuantumBlack for data engineer role. Any idea on how interview patterns would be like during this pandemic?
Anyone have experience transitioning from primarily Federal consulting to the tech world? I know it’s a huge culture difference, any tips?
I have a first round phone interview with a Partner coming up at Oliver Wyman for a Consultant position. Could anyone who’s been through the process share their experience?
Lost a nice fee-based account today ($750K) to an "annuity" I was stunned. Whatever she's been sold has a 20%(!!!) "bonus". My assumption there is that the annuity has a ridiculous surrender schedule
Anyone here broken into PE from tech consulting without an MBA? That’s where I want to head (and where the $ is) but not sure if the skills I’m learning on implementations are going to be attractive
Looking for help determining how much student loans I should take out for my MBA. Total cost of attendance (incl. tuition, housing, health insurance, etc.) + travel expenses for trips = ~$110k per year. I can get at minimum $20.5K unsubsidized loan from the gov. at historically low rates of 4.3%. Assume I could get a similar or better private loan for all or the remaining amount. I also have $60K in liquid funds, but I’m not sure how to think about how much of that to keep vs. use upfront to pay
Hey ME 🐠! New to the region and just joined a firm. Any recommendations on best credit cards to have? Bonvoy is an obvious choice, any others? Thanks!!
Anyone from McKinsey’s Healthcare practice that would be willing to chat? Not looking for a referral per say, just interested in the work that goes on in the provider space. Many thanks in advance.
Genuinely curious. Does the week after follow-up email actually matter? Not the post interview thank you, but the "hey, just checking in" type.
Where to put savings after exiting B4 & getting rid of independence restrictions? Is now a good time to invest? Relatively risk averse here.
Anyone else read the MS memo on no layoffs in 2020? What do you think? I'm skeptical of their ability to follow through, especially if the market spirals downward into a long-term recession
Deloitters...you do realize we have a Deloitte Canada bowl. This bowl is being taken over by us and seems silly to be asking about benefits, severance packages, etc. Here. https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_zyf8yc
