Does anyone have a SO who doesn’t quite get the whole remote work thing? My SO sees nice weather outside and wants to leave in the middle of the day to grill or get outside, and gets frustrated when I say I need to stay on the computer. I don’t have crazy amounts of work, but I do have a manager who needs to know the hours I work every day. Does anyone else have a partner like this? If so, what do you tell them?
I got the J&J vaccine (only one I could get back in April) and unlike the MRNA vaccines, it looks like there is very little data on how it performs against the Delta variant. Any other J&Jers out there feeling a little nervous?
Recruiters: for junior roles that disclose compensation up front, is there ANY negotiation after an offer? Have you ever rescinded an offer bc of negotiation?
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
I’m a foreigner on an L1 Visa about to start the green card process, anyone been through the process? Any tips/warnings I should be aware of? And what sort of timeline should I plan for?
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Making the move into an investing PE role shortly. Anyone done this previously and have tips to share on ramping up for the job coming from a strategy consulting background?
For those of you who have transferred offices, did you know anything about the office/clients/culture beforehand? In other words, how did you know it was going to be a good fit ? Or did you wing it
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
As we discussed the Easter Bunny’s visit, I realized his back story is ready for innovation, and as a consultant, I’d really like to take that project on.
I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?
who’s doing the sfdc and slack integration?
Recs on a quick financial modeling certification? I’m looking at the CFI FMVA cert but they claim it will take 6 months. The limiting factor for me right now as far as getting a new job seems to be modeling experience so I’d like to credentialize myself a bit
Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
As I announced to my client during dinner at an Italian restaurant, "me likie breadsticks, me likie breadsticks!"
What kind of hours are you putting in on your current project? What's the industry? (E.g. Tech, in at 7:30AM, leave at 7PM, back online at 10PM)
I have interviewed w/ every member of an early stage start up & have an offer to join as their 1st hire. I just don't trust their technical co-founder to be able to execute or attract the right talent, so I'm going to walk away from it. I trust the other co-founder though and want to be honest. Should I be blunt when saying why? Would anyone here have actually appreciated to hear this if you were in a leadership position at a start up, or is co-founder status too late to make a change anyway?
