I’m having an interview with FDD PwC next week and was told besides the case interview, there would be 2 others on relationships and business acumen. Any insights on what particularly these two interviews entail, especially the business acumen one? It seems like the typical behavioral interviews but wanted to make sure if there’s something to be aware of or how to best prepare for them. Thanks!
I’m feeling frequently tired and demotivated (aka burned out) at my current job, but I’m also frustrated at myself for not applying for other jobs or grad school. I see possibilities, but the idea of chasing those while grinding at my job seems daunting, or I’ll talk myself out of trying. It’s been a year of this and I’ve never felt so stuck. Has anyone else been stuck like this? How did you motivate yourself to get unstuck and either happily stay or exit your job?
Evaluating an exit into Amazon as L6 product manager (TC: $225K) after 1 year at BCG. I want to work in tech/fintech long term. Questions:
1) Is the work life balance better at Amazon, than BCG? Currently I'm averaging 70 hours a week. More than that, the pace is quite insane. Deliverables every couple of hours.
2) Is the level of mentorship/coaching better at Amazon?
3) Is the offer reasonable? Their upper max is 250k and I'm currently at 240, should I try to atleast get my current TC?
I’m in a role where I have to build a personal brand - leadership in a startup. I don’t want to be a LinkedIn influencer though - you know the type - I really want to be a thought leader. I could go down D+I, or ER or something else but not sure if I should find a niche of speak more broadly or whether I even have enough experience to chat at all (I’m very, very young to be in this position).
From a startup/HR perspective, what are you struggling with? What do you want to hear about?

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
How long does the interview process typically take these days? The last time I moved companies it took 5 mos from the time I applied, interviewed, to my start date. I applied and interviewed with 4 organizations starting April of this year- completed the final 3rd round interview with them last week of May and have been waiting on offers. How long should I expect to receive an offer? All went very well and received positive feedback. PwC director role is my top choice at the moment. Thanks.

Feeling so tired after a whole day in the office. Just want to sleep and no motivation for anything else. How to refresh oneself after work?
Curious, but why isn’t tax calculated inside TC? The money you are forced to pay to the IRS isn’t compensation since you can’t use it. TC should be the amount you actually get to keep as compensation for your work. An extreme example would be if someone had a 100% tax rate for some mysterious reason. Would they be able to claim 150K TC even though they take home $0.00 a month?
What roles can realistically pay 200k+ with 3YOE excluding buyside, IB, and technical roles at FAANG?

Is there anyone that works for Gallagher Basset as a claims adjuster and willing to share their experience? I’ve been receiving quite a bit of contact from multiple recruiters over the past several months. I am concerned from reviews I’ve read and it appears they have a very high turnover rate.
On an average, How long does it get to hear back from the recruiter post the screening call at Deloitte UK.
I just opened an account on Charles Schwab and their financial consultants and wealth managers keep calling. Can I just ignore them? I just want to invest my money the way I want (ETFs). Don’t want to spend money on these dudes…
Any thoughts on the Pulaski Park area? Considering a condo NE of Division & Ashland. Not far from the good stuff on Division but the intersection seems a little seedy. Safe for a single F? Trying to decide if buying in a transitional area is a better investment.

Decathlon is now Nolhtaced, and it's not just the name they're changing.

Thoughts on working in-house early in career versus the other way around? I’m a student and my past experience and internship offers are heavy on the in house ‘startup’ d2c brand archetype...

So I have a client, who I was late submitting the work to. They asked for their allowed number of changes, and based on our contract, more changes = more fees. So they sent me an email asking me for the indesign file so they make changes themselves . . Should I sent it, as compensation to being late? I already gave them a complimentary round of changes though.

Hi there! I’ve been working as designer in Toronto for the past 14 years, mostly for marketing/design agencies. In my role for the last 7 years I have been doing both front end design (html/css) and digital design (web apps/websites). I am looking now to make a move into tech and am unsure what I should be making, as someone who has both development and design skill sets. What are your thoughts on this?

Does anyone have any articles/resources/studies that prove common design legibility concepts? I.e. using multiple columns of text in an article vs spanning an entire width of page, or using images for visual resting space, or using varied type/design treatments to create hierarchy. I’m encountering content marketing folks who “consider themselves designers” and are directing me in ways that create walls of text. Apparently my ten years of design experience (and common sense) isn’t enough.🤯
