MBA Applicants

Frustrated by how volatile GMAT verbal scoring is. In my previous 3 practice tests, I got V44 on each of them. Took my final practice test today and got V38 with only one more question wrong than usual 🤭

M1 Lol I know, but doesn’t mean it’s not frustrating. 44-38 is still quite a jump

Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.

Pretty much all of the partners or associate partners in my office have back issues that require medical attention, heart conditions or have battled cancer (one passed away within 4 months of being diagnosed). I dunno if there's a correlation or I'm being paranoid... 🤷🏽‍♀️

I’m starting as a Manager at one of the big 4 in 3 weeks. I left my tenure track job 4 yrs ago so I’m accustomed to non-academic work but still intimidated. Advice? Will I succeed this first year?

Reminder to never eat/ghost hours. Tactful pushback (en masse) will create a culture where ghosting hours does not occur.

What are some of the best perks at your firm? I think our best ones are 15% discount on stock purchase, 6% 401k match (full vest after 2 years) to name a few. Trying to see how other firms are

My client is jean friendly. I usually wear dress pants but my all male team keeps asking why I don't wear jeans and encourages jeans because of the culture. Women's jeans are usually tight And probably not work appropriate and I don't want to wear baggy mom jeans. Thoughts? Are skinny jeans okay? If not, what is?
