IAD Westin on a Thursday night.... *sigh*!
Left on vacation with the boyfriend, 1 hour into the drive realized I forgot my Switch at home 🤦🏼♀️ Effectively adding 2 hours to our trip to go back for it, hope this dumb sea otter event doesn’t lead to me getting dumped on vacay 🙃

New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and everywhere in between, what’s your longest commute?
Captain: "Welcome to LAX...our gate is occupied, should be just a few more minutes." Shocker...
What's a good car that's not tooo flashy but still pretty sexy, doens't have a huge footprint, and does the job well for San Francisco living?
Uber providing heli service from Manhattan to JFK. 8 minutes for $200. Not a bad deal, right?!? https://apple.news/AyNh_2v6cQGOA9wCyC-fI0Q
Anyone else delayed at LGA? Sky club meet up!
Any recommendations for a private cook in Cabo San Lucas? Looking for good simple fresh Mexican food for 3 dinners and 2 lunches for 6 adults in our penthouse kitchen. Prefer this over going out to eat given we will have a full kitchen.

My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market. Being a CPA is definitely better than not being one but will it hurt my exit opportunities if I decide to not pursue my license? Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
I have a six month old and today our neighbor came by as her son dropped something on our patio. While my husband was retrieving it I couldn’t find a single thing to say! Just said I was afraid to send my kid to daycare and she moved away saying oh I’m vaccinated in case you are afraid! I just forgot how I used to connect with people anymore!!! 😭😭😭

After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
Been In-House for 2 years now. Doing primarily Employment Law. I was offered a position at one of the Big 4 L&E Law Firms at a smaller office, my salary would be exactly the same I make now. In house has been comfortable but it’s not that challenging and I’m debating if I should go back to a firm. What should I do? Has anyone went back to a firm from in house?
Guys, any idea on CDK Global? Do they pay well? What about WLB, work culture in Consulting (Bangalore location)? TIA

Assuming a consistent rating, are all staff 2 --> senior 1 promotion amounts the same across PI groups? For example, is the raise the same to be promoted into Strategy vs. Finance?
I worked hard at a small agency and was promoted from AE to AS after only 8 months in the industry. I had to leave and found a contract position as an AS at a large agency. I am finishing my contract and my boss offered me a permanent position, but wants me on as an AE. I am open to the AE position, but they are unwilling to compromise on the AE salary which is a substantial cut from my salary at my former agency and 45% of my contract pay. What do I do? Do I leave if I feel I deserve more?
Does B4 still pay out your 2 week notice if you’re told not to come back for the 2 weeks? I’m giving my notice but have a week of paid personal days and a week of training for the 2 weeks of notice
In my offer letter it stated a signing bonus to be paid on the first available payroll after my start date. Its been a month since my first paycheck and HR and the Payroll team are incredibly unresponsive to my inquiry on where this bonus is. What’s the next course of action? Legal? I’m not at ACN anymore so not looking for ACN-specific advice.
Heard that American Airlines gets 80% of its business from 10% of their customers. Other 90% only fly once a year. That explains having to do the safety thing every time... 👈👉💺
What airlines did you travel using Delta sky miles point while traveling to INDIA? How many miles needed?
Fishes, looking for recommendations on growing business development and sales skills. Finding and growing pipelines, establishing marketing materials, closing sales, and similar for services. I have on the job experience within consulting but never any formal training or education. Entering a new role where I'll need to build organizational capabilities from scratch. Any recommendations on programs, certificates, courses, books, or other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Cold applied to McKinsey just for the hell of it. Got a call for a screening. Have no idea what to expect in the screen or overall interview process. Any tips/insights? (I’m now wishing I paid more attention to the MBB interview stuff in this app - I hear there’s a case? Haha 🤔)
Hi All, It’s been a week since I last heard from pwc in regards to my interview. I gave them my availability for next week but I’m on holiday and few of the days won’t be at home. Shall I follow up with recruiter and make them aware that I’m still waiting for something to be scheduled. Really don’t want to keep waiting…
Applied for an in-house position last week. I think I am a good fit. Haven’t heard from the big tech company. I briefly worked for the director of that group a few years back at a different law firm and we are connected on LinkedIn. Should I reach out to her? What should I say?
