I’m in my mid 20s and during/since college have been a pretty heavy drinker. Almost all weekends, some weekdays as well. Nothing dependent yet, but I did do dry january to kind of prove to myself that I’m not dependent and to re-assess my relationship with alcohol. I feel good and am proud of going the whole month so far, but physically I’m not noticing a huge change other than not being hungover on weekends. Anyone have encouraging words/advice/experience? Was it worth it?

Anyone doing internal product management? I have been hired as a senior product manager by the people tech IT team at a big company. I come from a b2b product owner/business systems analyst background. On one hand, I am excited about the change and a chance to work with the real users of the product but my ex manager implied it might be good to move out soon if I don't want to pursue career in product management. Would love any insights.
Need help making a decision! If you had a choice between living in a studio walk up in Harlem paying only $400 or moving to studio in a luxury building in Gowanus for $2700 which would you choose?

Joined Industry 3 months back: I do not see a clear/transparent promotion path, neither do I see the director/senior director really working with myself to define a clear career plan with me. Work has been really easy and comp is ok, but not stimulating enough. Should I chill and stay for at least 1 year so that I get the $$$ bonus and keep the sign on? Will this cause a career damage in my profile?
Can someone explain to me EY Parthenon’s career path? I was looking on LinkedIn and ALOT of people spent about 18 month as SCs, 18-20 months M, then to director (I assume is SM equivalent)? Is the trajectory designed to be fast tracked or I just happened to look at very capable people?
I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE! My Westin neighbors listen to awesome music, whether they like it or not. That is all. Carry on.
New g/f about 2 months, found out one of my best friends i previously dated but are now just best friends. New g/f says my continued friendship with old g/f is a deal breaker. Twist: the old g/f..
I hate how this job has subconsciously made me more impatient, pushy, and kind of an asshole. My relationships are still good, but starting to wonder how bad this will get... any advice to fix?
Guys - Sorry if this was asked earlier, but does anyone know of any codes to use for rental car discounts?
Interesting deals pwc have worked on?
Can you guys help me compare two offers?
1. Manager MBB non-US.
TC = 180k, with yearly promotions of ~25% increases. Likely path to partner in 5 years, making ~450-550k TC.
2. PE Associate at a boutique, non-US.
TC = 250k, no clear promotion path.
MDs make >450k, potentially reaching 1-2M in good years. Absolutely no idea how long it would take or if it would even be possible at this boutique.
Also, MBA-sponsored. Would have to payback 180k in tuition in case of choosing (2).

Need help navigating: I joined team in tech role for a new initiative, and I’m also trying to make a role change. Manager announced their departure, and a sister team has open spots (role I want to switch to), which would still allow me to work on the initiative — imagine going from project team to PMO team under same PPMD. Should I bring this up to anyone, or keep my head down for now? I’m new to this team, so don’t have many relationships yet
