Area around union park in Chicago safe?
New to this. Is it typical for a firm to ask a staff to do the work of a senior for a year to show that they are ready for a promotion?
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
$30/hr 1099 is a joke for a certified Admin, even one in the midwest with no experience right? I'm coaching someone changing careers with a master's (not MBA) who was offered this rate.
KPMG vs Capgemini Invent? Which do you think is a better choice? I’ve been offered a similar level role with similar compensation in both. Working within FS and data consulting. Long term I’d like to move to a tier-1/ tier-2 consultancy. Thanks!
How is the Product Manager position at Wish?
How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise. I am used to quick promos and my new company is hiring someone with equal product exp to a more senior role than me, likely due to his 3 more yrs of overall experience. I am having my first child in the next few months and I think it would be good for me to learn some patience in my career growth and just enjoy my current role. I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Thinking about buying a house/condo. Single here. I have about $70K in savings and stocks combined. $110K in 401K, no outstanding loans and credit card balances. I am comfortable paying up to $1800/month for mortgage. Looking for suggestions on my readiness to become a home owner.
My mom decided that tonight she’d confess: 25 yrs ago she told me my 1st choice college did not give us any financial aid and I couldn’t go there (so I went where we had it). She admitted I almost got a free ride but she didn’t want me to go there so she lied. I feel betrayed. Loved my school and have no regrets. Just feel manipulated.

Does this kind of LinkedIn bologna get people noticed? I think it’s the most pretentious thing going.

Just got hit with a $550 fee for my corporate platinum AMEX membership when I paid $395 last year. Did anyone else have theirs spike up??
This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?
Hi all- I am moving from a big4 into a PL role at BCG. Any advice on the transition? Boston Consulting Group
