In m&a consulting and thinking about switching to careers, looking at sales specifically. Anyone have experience in this? Trying to find a job at one of the big tech firms but no sales experience hurts most job apps. Any suggestions on a way to get in, or jobs I could even qualify for?
Have a promotion upcoming for a strat director position, but haven't talked salary yet. What are strategy directors getting these days? I'm at a creative shop in NY, for context.
I’d honestly be fine if the debates tonight broke out into a fist fight. Wouldn’t even be the weirdest part of this election.
Are you incoming staff 1? What’s your starting salary for your city and service line? I’m really skeptical that firms will be paying those of us that progressed less than incoming staff just out of my own experience where I came in as staff 1 earning more than the staff 2 when I started for the same service line.
My standing desk just collapsed mid-zoom call and I wasn’t on mute smh that shit was too embarrassing
Had an awesome date where we hooked up this weekend. Finally... after several months of talking!!! Wish me luck...if I get covid, it will have been worth it.
My CFA (NW mutual) is suggesting I put my capital in American funds. I pulled out of a 529A for my daughter that had a 5% front load. I’ve played a bit with robinhood, but I want to do some adult investing and I don’t have time for real estate management. 1) why does anyone bother with American funds with the absurd fees over vanguard 2) am I looking in the entirely wrong place? I want a good place to put my bonuses YoY and a small sum monthly. Goal is cash flow in 20 years.
Are beards looked down upon at McKinsey? I’ve been growing a gnarly corona beard and just heard from a recruiter regarding a phone screen. At what point in the interview process would I have to get on camera? Really enjoying my caveman appearance, bummed to have to clean myself up for this.
What do you think is appropriate to wear for a final round video interview with a tech company (talking to senior people in Finance)? Full suit and tie? Or just a button down?
Submitted my app to McK a week ago for Associate level. Haven’t received comms yet. Is it fair to say that recruiters declined to interview?
I just got engaged and want to get my fiancé a present. Any good ideas for what I can get him to celebrate since he just did so much for me?
I reached a breaking point with the simultaneous stress in my job and family, and accepted that I am completely burnt out. I used to be a high performing workaholic and now I no longer care about work and am just doing the minimum. Also starting to really value and focus more the life I have outside of work. I don't think I want to go back to being a stressed workaholic but this shift feels unnatural. A bit worried I will stop caring so much that I'll slip significantly. Any advice?
Is it legal to pay overtime x0.5 instead of 1.5? Example, if my hourly rate is $20, when I work more than 40 hours I would make $10 the hour instead of $30.
