"That KPMG consultant really has a sense of style. Did you see his sexy backpack?"

Yes. Absolutely. I thought they were played out enough over 9 years of lacrosse. @P1-- If your sense of style depends on your flashy socks, you don't know how to dress. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I like my colorful socks. I think animated socks are played out. Like that bullshit with beer bottles, skulls, or sailboats etc., but I think stripes and polka dots will always be in style. Personally not a fan of argyle but I think it's allowed.

Any experienced senior managers that have moved between Big 4 firms? Can you speak towards your experience, any struggles, and opportunities in terms of partner promotion? Frankly, EY path to partner seems to be too clouded (long pipeline, no clear direction/path, uncertainty on promotion cycles, etc.) at the moment and I would like to visit all options. Appreciate the input.

I’m a single consultant who makes decent $$ in my early 30s. I have been living in small shit holes just to save more money to make my happy, but I suddenly realized I’m already in my 30s and I don’t have many years to enjoy my prime years living in a gorgeous place. Is it ok to start spending more - like renting a place with fantastic view to make me happy?
