Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Would an experienced hiring manager or someone who jumped to another consultancy be willing to review my resume and offer advice/ suggestions over a phone call? Prefer someone SM-level & above 🙏
Anyone know the details about any lists in DC/Arlington for extra/leftover COVID vaccines? Keep hearing about lists that sites are keeping that they call thru at the end of the day to make sure all the doses are used.
Recently accepted an offer but I got another one later on with better pay and benefits for the same job. How common is for people to withdraw from accepted offers and how do you address it? Will that affect possibilities to move to that company in the future?
MBA or CFA if I want to climb the ladder at an asset management firm? For context - 1 year out of undergrad working an internal finance role
Can someone who has done the research let me know what supplements are worth it (if any)? My general understanding is vitamins are not proven to change basically anything unless you have a real deficiency and are best obtained through diet. Is there anything else that has proven benefits? Thinking of upping my morning smoothie game, would love tips.
My friend has an interview for a senior position at deloitte next week, could anyone please share how to prepare for it?

I have a question for HR/People Department leaders: For companies that are 1,000+ employees, what is your ideal HR/People Department structure?

Everyone I know who was crazy safe during COVID round 1 is now sick. I think it’s because they didn’t get any exposure for so long. If we have another lockdown, what does it mean for public immune system ability to fight other viruses?
My Covid antibody test was negative but I swear I had Covid before.....I don’t understand this virus
My 401k is split between 3 funds - large cap growth, large company index, and total stock market index. 26 yo. Do I need to diversify or is this okay for now ?
Hi guys, I know this has probably been asked multiple times but need a fresh wind of advice. Shall I switch from pre tax to post tax/Roth contribution for reminder of the year? Not sure what’s the benefits are of each. If I anticipate my income to go up, shall I max Roth now?
Received an offer for a strategy manager position at a large media company for 135k + 15% bonus. Does this sound right? I have 3 YOE.
N00B question- is there a central place to go search for openings on projects? Commercial or internal. I know there is one for federal.
Anyone out there at EY who is willing to provide a referral to FDD? Please DM me. Thanks!
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Just told my fairly new bf how much I make and he makes 3 times of how much I’m making right now. I had a big career setback because of covid and my salary hasn’t increased for a while. He cares about money and being rich so much I feel like he might dump me at some point. I won’t be upset if he does because that’s on him, but I feel so insecure about how ridiculously poorly I’m doing in life:(. Just wanted to let it out
What exactly is “Client Partnership” role? The description sounds strategic and fancy but I have a hunch it’s more like running after clients to beg for their time.
Just bought the 23 and Me health and ancestry. Anyone ever get their results and see something that shocked them?
I’m seeing so many graduates from the U.K. advertising schools with LinkedIn resumes full of 1-2 years of ‘Creative Placements’ at the big agencies. Is it really normal to intern for that long?
Anyone here have experience with secondary insurance? Any examples of how it was useful to you or not worth it at all? Thank you 🙏🏼
Hi All, I would like to know of people who were in data and analytics consulting and later joined product or tech companies. Any adaptation to culture or work? Please share some learnings and exp😊
Physical book recommendations? Looking for topics on Python, ML, DS, etc. Any interesting must reads in the field? Looking heavy to up-skill and get more technical! The journey begins now.
Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.
Anyone move from Big 4 to Grant Thornton? Any major differences? Thinking about switching.
What’s culture and WLB like in Google Strategy and Ops? I see most are former MBB, and I’m curious if they continue to carry the expectation of long hours and availability after-hours.
At what point do you talk salary with a recruiter? Want to get it out of the way because if expectations aren’t in line no point in continuing discussions, but don’t want to bring it up too soon?
Just got back from a team dinner with the practice leader. I almost gagged myself with my spoon when everyone would laugh at his asinine jokes. #BrownNosers Corporate politics really make me sick.
Was referred by an MD at a firm for his practice; recruiter reached out for availability - then proposed a time…I totally forgot to confirm the proposed time (which has now passed) then I misspelled her name in my panicked apology note. What a start to the day…it’s a great role too
Raise % for a second year senior in FDD?
Thinking about exiting consulting with 2YOE and would love to get perspective on what people felt like was the most important aspects to optimize for early in their career/life that has set them up for success in the long term - e.g. good manager, learning opportunities, level of ownership/responsibility, comp, or even better WLB to figure out their interests
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
I've never heard about internships or projects on consultancy, management services offered by any company in India..!
