Anyone else think Points Guy is hot 😍
Why don’t we put those that are unvaccinated on an unofficial lockdown? Those of us that did our part should not suffer for the ignorant. Why don’t localities mandate using vaccination cards as a means of entry and deny those that aren’t. I’m tired of having my life upended by the ignorance of those who believe in right wing, scientifically unverified talking points.
Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)

What do you recommend for a high performing senior manager to do in order to increase their compensation? I have always been rated very high relative to my peers, and I have never wanted to use another offer to get more money...but it seems I am still underpaid relative to market/some peers who aren’t homegrown. How do you feel when someone leverages another offer to get more money - do you trust them/feel the same affinity for them afterwards? Is there another better way?

Stocks stand at around $9K. I’m assuming I cannot contribute the full $6K to the IRA this year. Anything else I should probably look into?
How seriously is McK’s ‘outside activities’ policy enforced? It sounds like P2P advisory like MBA / College admissions consulting would not be allowed… is that correct?
I heard my teammate interviewing for another company in the next conference room... ...turns out it’s the same company I’m interviewing with later today. Let the hunger games begin!
I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.
I have an offer from MBB at my MBA program but I’d lose my sponsorship with LEK if accepted (they won’t match it). Interviewed for exposure. How easy would it be to lateral to MBB after I put in 2 post-years with LEK? Are the cases a little more relaxed then? The FOMO😖

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 🙏
