I'd avoid unless you're senior with a lot of clout. Working model still is immature in terms of how different entities work together. Management consultants still run the show at the end of the day. You're just an add-on, a plugin to entice the client to spend.

How was the interview and process. I'm currently interviewing with McK for desi fn director role and would love to hear your process and what you decided on doing

Depends what your skills are. McKinsey Design is a specific design practice that is more workshops and problem solving introducing a stakeholder perspective than artifact or output driven.

When you apply for a job with a client, could they reveal that you’re doing that to your current firm? I’m sure the official policy is to protect privacy, but more concerned about client individuals who may have close relationships with partners/SMs at my firm and reveal something casually while interviews are still ongoing.

I recently interviewed for a job and they said they have more interviews and will let me know when the decision is made. It has been 2 weeks now. Is it safe to say they took a pass? Do you think it’s too soon to reach out and see what’s going on?

I’ve noticed companies are starting to ask if you wish to identify if you’re LGBTQ+ when applying for jobs. When I’ve gone along with this I notice recruiters focus more on diversity and employee groups, and it’s making me feel like I’m being interviewed as a potential diversity hire, especially when I’ve received interviews from companies that are prone to boy’s club culture. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Anyone else experience it or have thoughts?

Buy gold, buy silver. Physical is best, tradeable assets that let you redeem for tangible are second best: $PSLV and $PHYS are best Gold hit $2K+ an ounce today - for those who are 'TLDR', that ain't good. The FED is going to raise rates soon to combat stagflation but it will not solve the entire puzzle. Precious metals, metal miners, standalone property in healthy markets, and for those who can handle risk, cryptocurrency, are your safe havens. The clues are there; we're toast; good luck.

Moving to LA for a job, Jan/Fen timing. Office is in Culver City. Currently live in NYC.. Williamsburg specifically. When I get there, I would come into the office 1x a month MAX. Any recommendations for neighborhoods to live in while mostly WFH? My partner and I already own a car but I don’t drive... yet. So ideally I would to be able to walk to a coffee shop, takeout restaurants, and some shops maybe. Maybe Los Feliz/Silverlake? Or do I just live in Culver City?

Question about a couple of opportunities that I am considering. 1. A consulting company which is willing to pay me more than the second opportunity but work is going to be based out of Toronto. 2. An insurance company and position is based in Kitchener/Waterloo. Does the extra pay make up for the diff in cost of living between Toronto and KW? Also will higher taxes based on tax brackets offset any advantage? Fyi 200k consulting vs 150-155k insurance. Assume future potential as same. Suggestions?
