Maybe a dumb question: What is the proper etiquette for reply vs. reply all when responding to an email?
Ex: Manager sends a FYI/status email and copies the whole team including partners. Somewhere in the body of text they make a specific ask of you like "Senior associate, can you please do xyz?"
Do you respond solely to the manager confirming that you will do xyz. Or do you reply all?
I'm concerned about clogging up partners' inbox, but I don't want them to think I'm not doing my job either

Next week I have my first in-person 1-1 with my boss. I’m getting bored in my role now and want to advocate for myself and present him with some ideas of projects I could take on, skills I want to develop (that benefit team) and where I want my career to go. Unless I say something, I think I’ll just continue with the same responsibilities.
Has anyone done this before and do you have any suggestions?
I’m looking for new jobs anyway, just in case this leads nowhere.

Anyone else historically a star performer and being told their performance is subpar since COVID? Not sure if it’s the additional stress/ distractions at home with a 10 mo old, wfh burnout/lack of motivation or what, but most importantly, wondering how to get past it and bounce back?

Received ECT AD in ops at BCG. I have two questions:

Change my mind: MBA’s do not have a good ROI if you already make $150+
The only benefits I see are:
-2 year sabbatical
-Build irreplaceable network (arguably makes it worthwhile but no guarantee)
Which out of MBB has the best WLB and why?
Is it typical to get a year end raise, even if you are not getting promoted? For example, I’ve been at my current rank for one year and am close to next level. My value is higher since I am more experienced but still billed as a senior analyst. Is it reasonable to ask my employer for a raise? My reasoning as follows:
- My work quality has significantly improved since last year
- 90% utilized this year
- Current pay is below market value
- No harm in asking
What flight crew just tried to kill Pence?
I started a consulting job at an upper mid-tier firm back in May. I sat on the bench for a month before being onboarded onto client (FAANG client to be non-specific) and I am more than a month on this new client. There are about 5 other C/SC and a few Principals that do “check-ins” with the group. I have been assigned an ETL task (PySpark/Airflow) that will take me about 40 hours e2e to deploy. This is my assignment for the next 4 months. Most of my colleagues do not know code at all. Normal?

My company is letting us expense a pretty good amount of $ for WFH gear. In a small apartment and have been going deciding between a monitor and a standing desk. Have you gotten anything that you rec?
Advice needed: I was hired into my company right after MBA, but not as a part of the official MBA rotational program. My role has a lot of additional responsibilities than those in the program: I manage one person, publish monthly reports, etc. People in the rotational program have much fewer responsibilities (1 big project/6m). I feel like because of the timing of my hire, I’m pegged to a lower title than my job responsibilities. How can I effectively make a case for promotion?
