We’re short staffed for a few weeks so some accounts I’m leading or tag teaming, clients don’t want to switch times. Struggling to focus and stay organized. My VP seems to do this easily.

Hi fishes, I am currently 16X certified consultant, developer, admin, application and system architect. Next, Instead of learning specific products like B2B, B2C, Marketing cloud, Vlocity, CPQ, FSL etc, I would like to learn more on the track of cloud security, hybrid cloud, multi cloud etc. Any suggestions on how to go about that?

Should I try to get an Alum to write me a recommendation email to the admission committee for Tuck? Would that give some extra booster on my application? I’m kind of debating on whether I should bother this one alum I know.
I am finally ready to leave Strategy& and rise to the top of the totem pole, but I don't know how! My professor had said that every door will be open to me after 5 years of strategy consulting, though IB and PE have been the extent of this "every door." I've been trying so hard to join a company C suite, and surprise, nobody wants to hire a 27 year old CEO. 😞 I'm totally dejected.

Those at Director level in P&T (I’m a manager), do you feel there is a realistic shot at making partner in P&T? Any pillars or roles in particular?
My current thinking: there are tons of directors in P&T and what feels like too many partners already in some pillars, plus not many new or missing roles that would make sense to be filled or created by a partner. Doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of room for making partner in P&T, despite Joe saying it’s a priority. I hope I’m wrong though!
Does anyone have an idea how the work life balance is at Department of Treasury LB&I? Im getting tired of this Big 4 life and it seems to be one of the exit opps for a TP professional

How have you set boundaries with in laws? Im 3 months pregnant and my MIL is becoming increasingly overbearing. It's constant nagging about things that haven't even happened. Don't let the baby join any sports, get the baby enrolled in music classes, don't let the baby crawl on the floor, let the baby sleep with you as long as he wants, don't abandon the baby in a different room, start thinking about having a second kid. It's really stressing me out. When I bring it up with my husband he contd

Recent H1B stamping experiences at the Mumbai consulate? Second time stamping (in 5th year of H1B), and not eligible for dropbox. Want to be extra cautious given the current immigration climate...
For anyone who watched Indian Matchmaking and didn’t like Aparna- READ THIS. Totally changed my mind on her, wow.
TLDR: it was all editing, purposely focusing on the entertaining (and negative) sides of her. So many good things she said were kept off camera.
