Under-utilised since joining boutique three months ago. Not developing at all and periods of no work for me are common (even when I chase up). Other grad hires are in the same position. Time to worry?
I've been taking the silver line shuttle to Boston south station instead of an uber to save the client money, but I almost just got trampled and a suitcase fell on me. Never again 😰🙅🏻
What can you actually do to salvage a project going down in flames? I’m a new manager, completely do not have the support I need, and it seems as though every single team/person our team relies on to get things done on time has dropped the ball. All the issues are now coming to us. I don’t have the experience to navigate this all alone, and I am not getting the necessary support as all of my managers are swamped with other (to them, more important) issues at the same client.
Anyone knows what’s the base and bonus for a M2 in valuation position in NY area? Trying to negotiate an offer next week. Thanks!

My company expects me to work over 12 hours a day and I’m being asked to work the weekend constantly. Its making me extremely frustrated as I feel my labor is being exploited. Is it like this at other agencies? Has anyone made the switch to client side?
I sometimes listen to Ben Shapiro, I am a libertarian myself. While he clearly has a point of view that he transparently shares I feel he does a good job in explaining the thoughts of the other side and gives actual quotes and live clips to back up his position. on his show, he told his viewers to tune into pod save america, the liberal version of his show. I've listened to it multiple times now, and it just seems to be people venting their own opinions with certainly not as much substance
I really need advice please. I’m a newly promoted S1 in Tax & I’m extremely conflicted. I really wouldn’t mind staying till manager. While I work extremely long hours, I find the work interesting & I enjoy working with my team. I don’t plan on having kids for a while so I really just want to do the best to put myself in a position where I will be the most successful in the long term. People who left at manager, do you think it helped or hindered you by staying that long?

With the lateral market as hot as it is, are any firms hiring for reduced hours associates? Do you think they’d still offer any sign on incentives? I figure it’s better to have an extra body doing 1600 (80%) than nobody, right?
I got the HR call. I have around 5 YOE and Deloitte is offering me a consultant position. CTC is also around 15.5 fixed and variables extra. Is it a good offer or should I negotiate more?

2 years out of undergrad and planning to apply next year. I had a great relationship with an SM and decent with a partner, but since starting remote work due to COVID I have had virtually no face time with leadership bc of the size of my team and my responsibilities. Mostly just venting but ugh how do I get LORs!!
I’m working on a project and the account leads are, in every sense of the word, useless, and yet have an incredible ‘holier than thou’ attitude towards telling everyone else what they should be doing.
