Ladies - how do you balance time at your SO’s family vs yours? Mine is closer and easier to get to (driving distance on East Coast), whereas his is on the West Coast and requires a week’s vacation to make worthwhile. Continued.

I want a holiday gift card from Deloitte 😢
Anyone had to talk to a partner after burnout / anxiety resulted in a train wreck, job performance wise? Just completed a registration statement that was just embarrassing. I missed stuff in a pre vacation review due to burnout and overwhelming anxiety (probably did not help that I was trying new meds for that at the time); the comments I did make were regularly not addressed by the midlevel (probably also due to burnout)…

I have interest in purchasing a mountain home as a vacation rental property. Is it possible to get a business loan for this? Looking for resources to help contribute to look at various financial scenarios as well. Thanks!
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
Thoughts on buying Sheraton vacation home rentals (I.e. time shares). Math is: $18k total investment, spread over a 7 year, 13% loan, gets you a) 1 week of studio stays in 200+ resort locations b)...
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
What are things to review in an offer besides salary before deciding? Thinking things like healthcare, time off, etc. but wondering if there are any atypical things like potential COVID-like severance policies that you look for
How can I feel less guilty about taking time off? My partners sound very supportive of my time off to destress and all. But the stream of emails and call invites coming in, and occasional emails from managers sometimes just make me feel like I’m abandoning my responsibilities.
Awesome in-house job alert!🚨 hiring a full-time designer-illustrator (must be equal parts and truly stellar at both). 4-5 years of experience (ish - the portfolio matters more). Great pay. Great culture. Very remote friendly with option for office time later. DM me your portfolio!
Hi! Does anyone know what kind of knowledge is needed to crack the Data Scientist interview at Google? I'm currently working in Marketing Analytics (primarily using SQL and a bit of pyspark). Apart from mastering SQL, I wanted to know from people working at Google what does it take to get there as a Data Scientist? (I'm very interested in Strategy Ops) I plan to another 6-8 months in preparation and upskilling myself before I even apply. Any help and guidance is appreciated! Thanks :)
Probably going to get lit up for this for being out of touch, but looking for perspective on comp. Just turned 27 and 5 YOE. Left a T2 several months ago making more money for a series A startup with base salary of $130k and options worth another $20k per year. Obviously knew leaving for a startup would likely mean lower comp than other exits, but now starting to feel like maybe I’m falling behind or set myself back. Thoughts?
Has anyone been denied H1B after receiving a RFE? I just received one and uscis basically wants to know how my job is related to my education.
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
Anyone invited to interview R2 at LBS but haven’t been matched with your interviewer yet? I know it can take up to 2 weeks but the anticipation is killing me!

Been at D (legacy S&O) for ~ 6 wks now as an analyst and goal to be at MBB by EoY. 1) Where can I find resources on how “experienced” hire recruiting differs from campus hires? 2) What are some best practices/resources/tips for casing? Got 2 1st round interviews during college, and did well on behavioral, but was told my casing needed some work. I want to do anything in my power to close my ability gap. Thank you!
What do you feel about comments like “ diversity/inclusion/female/Asian initiative are overrated, people should be hired and promoted based on work quality” want to hear both pro and oppose sides
Any advice on not letting frustrations come out in an unproductive way over slack chats or other virtual programs, especially as we use these more and more instead of direct discussions?
I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?
I’m officially sick of being burdened with solving diversity just because I am diverse, when leadership are only interested in paying lip service to it. Do your job. Set some targets.
Help! My toddler doesn’t want to eat anything but cheese and fruit and peanut butter. We have been trying the “you provide, they decide” thing but her decision is to not eat. She’s always been small and doctor said we need to get her weight up. Any ideas or recipes? Getting desperate!
