Welcome to the internet. Psychologically, people don’t engage a whole lot on supportive, no controversial subjects. It’s only once they disagree with something, is there an actual trigger to respond. You are not seeing the full picture here, only what people get roped into responding to. People get defensive and mean about it because everything is an argument by design.

I think my post may have come across like it’s impacted me or that I’m new to consulting but just honestly curious how people feel. I appreciate your insights, nice to hear this app has helped people, especially this past year!

It’s just the nature of an anonymous forum

Fishbowl is great. It’s anonymous and let’s people share their thoughts without fear. Unfortunately, we are a product of our role. Consulting has taken a toll and we vent out here

To be honest, FB was much better before Covid and everything else that followed- BLM, election, more Covid, etc. It sometimes feels like the average IQ on the app dropped 20 points in the last year, plus people are more judgmental/combative. I think that largely just mirrors the world in general though.

SM 1 that makes a lot of sense, and agree it’s just how the world is in general right now unfortunately. I’m only a senior associate so its nice to hear the perspective of someone with your experience!

OP - I think, a lot depends on which bowls you are on and what type of posts are you looking at. Posts about Firm rankings, politics etc. will be as they are expected to be. Full of strong personal opinion and little tolerance. There are amazingly helpful and matured bowls that I've personally benefitted from and enjoyed being a part of. Personal Investment and Healthy Eating bowls are prime examples. The combined intelliegence and knowledge in this bowl is very very high. Stay plugged in and get enlightened, like many of us!

Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!

My wife is starting a full time job after 2 years. I’ve been paying all the expenses since we’ve been married. We each have our own separate accounts and a joint account. Her salary will be around $50-$75k. We agreed she needs to contribute to the expenses and I was thinking that starting off paying half the rent would be reasonable ($1,500). Maybe put that amount per month into the joint account and then she can do what she wants with the rest? Reasonable? How do others handle expenses?

My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.

A while ago I graduated college and went to a digital marketing agency for an internship. Two months later I was hired as an analyst. The person I was reporting to resigned almost immediately leaving me with the keys to a $10m retail account during Q4. I was in performance marketing. I learned a lot during this time but I didn’t know what I was doing and had no oversight (or help). It got ugly and I eventually left for another agency where I was on a supportive team. Does this happen a lot?

Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD. Also initiating an EB2 app. Should I try and move to a different Big4 firm if I can get a level bump? New EB2 app, PERM and I-140 approval (premium) might take a year. Will need 485j. Or should I just stay at Deloitte and try for the SM promotion, while waiting for my EB2 EAD? Current base: $183K, 12 YOE.
