What items do I bill my time for with a new client? Starting my first real freelance gig and know I can bill my time for all the client onboarding items and background research/materials review to get me up to speed on things, but can I also bill for all the HR paperwork and email set up and things like that?
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true? Continuing below:

Anyone heard of a credit fund called Orion Energy Partners? Wanted to get a feel of how well known or unknown they are in the market. Was also curious if anyone has any idea what comp expectations should be for an Associate?
Does Apple Music only hire people that have worked in the music industry? Thought about applying for a marketing role at Apple Music but looking at current employee profiles on LinkedIn is so discouraging. It’s like they only hire people who’ve worked in the music industry. I’ve held and currently hold a marketing role at big tech companies but different industry. Wondering if that would make a difference, or I’m wasting my time applying.

Hello, I recently stopped pursuing a PhD degree and am looking to start a consulting career. I'm seeking an entry level position in strategy/analytics or business transformation. I did my undergrad and masters in top 10, but don't have much professional experience yet. It seems like I'm quite late to the game at this point and have limited access to recruiting info. Any advice on best ways to at least get interviews? Or, anyone willing to offer referrals?
Do the big four (S&A, Business transformation) give market sizing profitability etc type cases similar to MBB?
I have heard that the interview invites for MBBs FT recruiting go out today. Anybody heard of a time range to shoot for? I'm probably going to be a nervous wreck the entire day anyhow. (Tags: McKinsey, Bain, BCG, M7, MBA Recruiting)

Hello Moms! having a hard time finding daycare for our 6 month old in DC… came across some franchised schools that appear good, however I can pin point the real differences between them? What’s the difference between Primrose Vs Kiddie Academy vs Goddard? We are waitlisted in all 3. Primrose is the most expensive one at $2,806 (they claim they’re a tier 5 school along with Goddard and kiddie is either 3 or 4). Thank you in advance!
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Been seeing someone for about 3 weeks. Having unprotected sex. Like them and see this evolving, but don’t wanna scare them off by asking if they’re sleeping with other people (for safety/health reasons) - is this a normal convo to have early on? The only ask is if they’re having unprotected sex w others, but don’t want them to think I’m trying to lock them down after only 3 weeks
