Been working from home doing road and virtual meetings. Now it's time for physical location or assistant. What's the priority?
NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.
At what point do you expect your partner to come out to their family?
I don’t want to be thrown in a closet but also don’t want to put pressure on a new relationship. But it’s already becoming an issue.
Where’s everyone at?
How do you keep calm during the 2 week wait? And what do you do when you get a negative test at the end of it? Looking for tips to maintain sanity LOL
For the males: how do you accept the fact that you spend more on your girl than she does on you? (Mainly money but also energy and time) - answer only if you can relate
Anyone has interview experience in PepsiCo ?
Any tips for piling oneself out of a slump? I will occasionally get down in the dumps if I haven’t been working out and making an effort to make plans and see folks outside of my regular routine.
Are there any “best practices” as it relates to giving notice? Currently practicing in somewhat of a specialist group and lateraling to re-tool to a practice area I’m more interested in and also relocating to LA (where I’m from), so not necessarily competitive but I’ve been in this group for 3 years and have received very positive feedback on my work and built solid relationships/mentorships so curious if y’all have any pointers to avoid inadvertently “burning bridges” as they say…
Any recommendations on silk pjs? I’m trying to treat myself. Preferably shorts/shirt sleeved shirt rather than longer pants and shirts.
Does direct mail marketing work these days and if yes, what industries, audiences do you see it work for? How do you justify the spend in this digital focused marketing world?
Any advice on improving cover letters for MBB. I heard that you shouldn’t write one for McKinsey, is this true? Thank you!
DC folks, what's it like living in Penn Quarter/Chinatown? I'm looking to buy in DC/NOVA, so assessing neighborhoods.
I feel like that area is rowdy and has a lot of noise pollution due to its proximity to C1 arena? Is it safe?
For more context, been living in NOVA (Rosslyn, atm) for almost a decade and went to college in DC but I've never really spent time in PQ/CT.
I'm a little clueless on that area, so any insights would be appreciated!
I’m looking to have salary renegotiation discussion with my company.
I work for a small consultancy with the HQ in the US, they opened a branch in the UK in 2020, I’m the only PM in London working remotely with access to the office if needed.
I’m paid nicely for the UK market but
Going through Glassdoor I have seen that there is a difference of 30-40k with salaries there even PMs also work remotely.
How would go on approaching this discussion and ensuring this land well?
I’ve been a consumer bankruptcy associate for 3 years pay is 65k. The other attorneys at the firm only do confirmation matters. I handle Mislc. motions, orders, confirmations, 341 hearings, mass court appearances, 85% of client calls for random nonsense and anything random that comes up. I was told I can only get a raise if I take on more responsibilities. This can’t be normal???? What practice areas can i shift to with such a niche field?
