Your training consists of being thrown into the raging fire with a wet towel and small bottle of water and told to navigate your way out of it with small droplets of water dropped every now and then by upper management

Curious to know, why are salaries at MBB, OW and boutiques in Canada close to the salaries in the US, while there's a gap wider than the Atlantic at the Big 4. Is the national model the culprit?

Do you ever feel like you’ve become an alcoholic as a result of being a consultant. I’m with EY but I’m pretty sure this is prevalent across big 4.

I’m still amazed when I see consultants at the same firm since graduating undergrad (primarily B4) and have never left to seek other opps at other consulting firms. Is the cushion that comfy?

Do you think the current situation would affect pending offers? Received a verbal offer from another B4 but concerned the contract will be delayed due to what’s going on around the world/markets.

Currently do all my non-retirement investing through Wealthfront and I can see that their 5 year return for a portfolio with a risk score of 7/10 is only 5.45% (net of fees). Isn't that super low? The 5 year return on a fund like VTI is 10%. VOO is even higher. I know WF helps manage downside better with cash and bonds, but I can't help but feel like I'm leaving a lot of money on the table by not just buying funds through Charles Schwab or similar.
