Cheapest thing you've done after making more than $100K: (e.g. Taking toiletries from a hotel)
Does a senior VP in a relatively "no-name" company (like Johnson and Johnson) make more than an entry level Program Manager in Google?
135k base and I would like to buy a Porsche. I have 20k in student loans and no other debt. Go for it? I'm not even into cars but every time I’m dashing through the Target parking lot and see one, it’s like love at first sight😍. That is my only justification 😂
Do you ever tip 20% or more for dine in?
Salary at age 25?
How much does everyone have in 401k/retirement accounts and savings? Please state your age! I’m trying to figure out how behind I am
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Has anyone gone from making 120k per year to 160/180k ? How did it feel and was it a huge life improvement and did u finally feel like everything your invested in your work life paid off? I’m at 120k rn and for the number of hours I’ve put in and the complete lack of savings I have living in a hcol city I’m hoping that my next salary will ameliorate my money worries . I don’t think after all I’ve done (school/work) I should feel underpaid and broke but I do

Ever bombed an interview so badly that you agreed at the end of the call you aren't a good fit?
Best life lesson I learned from Deloitte: don’t ever, EVER sign a contract that demands you return the sign on bonus if you leave within a year. I thought to myself, “I would never leave a company within a year”, but I grossly underestimated how much I could hate a job.
Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...
Collective consultant power needed. Case study: my parents own a small bar. 8 tables. No room for dancing/games. Bar is struggling financially. How do I approach helping? Any ideas how to improve?
Am I stupid if I make 50k and try and purchase a 85k Porsche. I can easily afford it on a 5 or 6yr financing/month, since my rent and CoL is low. But I am skeptical and feel like it is not the smartest decision. I only like 3 things outside of work: Cars, Watches and Football.
Craziest thing you’ve done in an interview when you knew you had no chance of getting the job?

The delta gate told me that I hit the jackpot although I paid the full price for my first class ticket.
Maybe Waldo just wanted to be left alone. Poor guy.
I have a legit endorphin addiction. I feel overwhelming need to exercise every day in order to feel the happiness and relaxation that follows. It sounds great but on days when I can’t work out (contd)
That moment of silence after your date asks you if you travel much and you haven't told her what you do...
It's Friday. You finally got everything done. Ready to pack up at 5 when an email with 9 new "urgent" projects come in and you have somewhere to be. #fuckallyall #offlineuntilmonday
Best way to prep for BCG Case math? Strong in other areas...only one remaining (semi) weakness

When I first started my old client (F 40) called me hun, but I didn’t say anything. I’m 23 and have 2 years experience now, but in case this happens again, how do I manage this?
Any 🐠 here date non-professionals (e.g. Non-consultant/lawyer/banker)? What are some of the pros and cons? Finding myself decreasingly attracted to the yuppie type
