How are these 21 year old girls affording a private jet to go to Miami for a weekend of clubbing/ partying. Who are these people. How can I be friends with them? How can I join these groups? Adopt me? Date me? Give me a cheat code to tag along? There’s no way as a SM at PwC I am any close to being on a private jet than I was at 22 when I started.
I think I’m falling for my mother in law. The feelings aren’t necessarily sexual in nature. They seem to be much deeper and emotional feelings—which I get would concern my wife more so than sexual feelings. It doesn’t help that everyone thinks my MIL finds me to be her “favorite” in addition to some other complicating nuances. Obviously, I won’t act on these feelings, but as the years go by, the closer we’re going to get since she’s around a lot and we talk quite often when we’re alone.

Please help - I need opinions on men’s clothing! What are people’s perceptions of black suits vs. blue/gray? About to refresh my wardrobe now that I’ve made associate. I work in a conservative industry, so leaning on adding some black suits, especially now that I’m a but more senior and going to see more client action. I like my blues and grays, but if I wear those exclusively do I come off as less serious? Any and all view points are welcome, truly just testing the water. Ty!

Happy holidays! What kind of craziness is everyone putting up with this year? I’ll start — my MIL told me my daughter scowls too much and that she needs “baby Botox”, and my sister just announced that she’s bringing the husband she’s been separated from (and that no one has spoken to) for 2yrs. Can’t wait! 😅

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
Hello! I just found a job in IFS at PwC that I’m very excited about as it really aligns with my passion and skill set. Would anyone be able to share insights on the culture? And is compensation comparable to external consulting?
I had a mediocre background. I am not mediocre. I’ve never gotten past the background rounds. I’ve never gotten to solve a case in an interview setting. I know I would impress. How do I get there?

Is it worth exiting to a 15 person boutique for a higher salary and more responsibility? I've been at my firm for 3 years. (If my eventual goal is industry exit in 2-3 years)
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one
Hi 🐠 s, Need help in evaluating 2 offers - Got a Technical Architect position at Salesforce and a Consulting Manager position at EY. I have been in Big 4 all my life(8 yrs exp)and more into Advisory than actual hands on technical work. Base pay at both the companies is same with EY offering no added benefits and Salesfor offering bonus + stocks. Transition to EY would be smooth as it’s the same old BIG 4 but want to check how technical is actually a technical architect position at Salesforce?
Do the other Big 4 firms have roles similar to PwC’s COE - dedicated service centers that support multiple Core engagement teams, while focusing on specific business processes?
