How can I successfully negotiate a higher signing bonus? Received a post-MBA level offer at a solid T2 firm. Base + bonus was in-line with market but signing bonus felt a bit low. Is signing bonus only for post-MBA level hires coming from MBA or can experienced hires negotiate as well?
Returning to B4 firm post-MBA in a few months - I was thinking I'd like to start reaching out to some of the contacts I'd networked with last summer to see what they're up to / what projects they have pending. Just wondering if this makes sense or if it'd be more annoying than anything. Thanks
Moving from big 4 tech implementation to boutique strategy firm for huge comp increase. Long term goal is mbb. Would this move help or hurt mba admissions and mbb recruitment?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Has anyone ever taken leave to complete the cpa exam? I’m struggling and just feel like I’m drowning with everything tbh. Have failed many times (high 60s) and even had a section expire. Expectations for my work performance are very high and I have neglected studying because of that (my own fault, I know, but unintentional). It’s really starting to weigh heavy on my mind but I don’t wanna quit. How long was your leave, how did you schedule your studying during that, any other advice? Cont…

Serious question: why do firms still have MBAs as hard requirements? Is there some legitimate knowledge, value, or (still) perceived prestige in staffing MBAs vs someone with equal qualifications but no MBA?
For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*

Left Booz last year to work for one of the beltway bandits. Culturally this is not a fit and I'm looking to quit. While I don't plan to go back to Booz or a Big 4, I'm considering a non technical role with a tech company in the DC or Reston area, preferably in partnership, BD or sales. How bad does a gap on my resume appear to recruiters and hiring managers? Any advice is appreciated.
Question about contingency fees (I work in an insurance defense firm and therefore have no idea)- client signs contingency agreement with law firm.

5 years ago I had a crush on a girl. Things were so different then; we used to hang out, talking about things which were utterly random and I loved watching her smile. I ultimately fell for her and we started dating. I spent the best time of my life with her. 1 year ago today, I lost her to COVID. Still, cannot get over her. Looking at the desperation in this bowl, I just want to say - hope you find the one, but this is not the right way. Desperation doesn't appeal anyone.

Re: Referral for Bloomberg My company is moving but I need to stay in NYC for family reasons. I searched everywhere to find a similar culture to where I am now and I feel like I found that at Bloomberg. Right before Year-End I completed an interview for an HR Role but it’s been a standstill since. We left the call talking about the next phases of interviews so I was hopeful! Would a referral help kick start this again?

This is more of a cash back card question, not points. I’m looking to BT onto a nee card and considering the Citi Double Cash or the Discover It card. Citi would be best long term for the 2% back, but the Discover card matches all rewards in the first year. Tough choice, thoughts?
