Hilton for sure. Also for future reference, I got a call for two all inclusive trips to my choice of a few islands. I was tipsy and only bought because they referenced my past Hilton stays. Turns out it wasn't Hilton and was some shady company with terrible reviews. Luckily AmEx is awesome about disputed charges and I didn't have to pay. Lesson: don't be a tard like me.

A story from my grandmother who recently passed; her and her friend would go to timeshare presentations all the time and get lobster and steak and shit. Then she'd call over the sales guy and ask "are there any black people there". The guy would say no, blah blah something racist. Grandma would reply, my daughter is married to a black man and they wouldn't feel comfortable so I don't think this is right for me. Come on Lorraine let's go. Carry on my grandmothers legacy and do exactly that

I did it in Vegas. The presentation wasn't that bad. Us and another couple drank during the video and then told the lady we can't afford a timeshare. Then drank more afterward.


Is it related to a timeshare via Hilton Grand Vacations?


It's a timeshare pitch. They will lock you up in a room for a few hours and try to convince you to buy . If you can hold your ground then it's a great deal. :)


Did this in Orlando two weeks ago (HGV). Told the sales guy I just graduated with lots of debt and not looking to buy. He let us get back to Harry Potter world pretty quick after that.


No cruise, 3N/4D in a resort for $99


Associate 1 - your grandmother is a saint. I would take her out to a seafood dinner and then call her immediately afterward.


They tried to sell me on this opportunity too this week. I turned it down though.



Scam damnit

What do you think

Sure ?😒 they gave me some 10000 points plus some 500 bonus points

Or a 100 dollars towards a future stay.very tempting to say yes hahaha

Let me ask still on call with them

Ya it is related to the timeshare via Hilton grand vacations .i gotta do a two hour tour.@ c1

Hold my ground on not buying the timeshare ?😅

I gotta pay some 249 for a deposit 😅

Yup. But then you owe the $250 balance or lose the $249 if you decide to cancel

Damn this is so confusing

Did any of you use it

Hey friends, I was laid off (due to COVID) from Accenture a month ago as an analyst. I had a pretty good network of SM, MD and managers that I talked to frequently before. However once I was laid off, I got depressed and haven’t reached out to any of them. I feel horrible but I’m trying to push myself out of my depression and make some positive changes. My fear is that at this point, I’m just a number and that they don’t care. It’s causing me anxiety and I’m telling myself it’s too late now.

It is common practice at my small firm by two main partners to fly through transactions for clients regardless of potential conflicts (for the company) or issues that may arise. It is often chaotic and has led to lawsuits being filed by investors against the clients. I know this is expected from time to time but I feel like I’m not getting the proper exposure to doing deals the right way. Would it be better at a larger firm or is this common anywhere? Mostly deal with microcap companies.

Hello, I would like to know about Siemens Balewadi, Pune (Smart Buildings / Infra account) How is the work culture, wlb, what are some Pros and Cons?

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making. Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally. Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!

Is it possible to find a career you truly enjoy? To look forward to going to work each day rather than dread it with every ounce of your being? I’m starting to feel as though “all work becomes work” and I will never be happy in a job.
