Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.

Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already
Why won’t more employers offer the opportunity for international students to join them? I just convinced my startup to sponsor me and I’ve been leading the process. All I had to do was register us on E-verify (FREE), and hired a law firm to help us with the H1B which will cost $7K. I still have two years of stem OPT on top of that. I thought the process was way more complicated. Not sure why some firms say they don’t accept international students when the process is so straight forward.

Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.
Norwegian living in Norway with my Canadian GF. Planning to move to Canada due to her visa running out. SC at Deloitte working mainly as a Solution Architect + DevOps Engineer, but also experience with Cloud Strategy and IT DD's.

Travel in sweat pants and then try checking into your hotel...where you are told that you have no reservation for the week and they are fully booked. Happy Monday!

My little sister is being raised in a less than ideal environment and has already been through some trauma before I met her/ before her mom got with my dad. Outside of opening a UTMA account for her, is there anything else I can do to ensure she has what she needs to leave as soon as she’s 18?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
