Anyone ever leave for a chiller role then regret it? I did three years in Consulting then went to PE. After a year in PE I came back to Consulting because the stress/culture of the fund I joined was far worse than I expected. I’ve been back in Consulting for a while now, and am enjoying being back, but I can’t shake this feeling I’m wasting my potential. Like because I’m no longer reaching for the highest rung on the ladder (PE), I’m selling myself short professionally. Any advice?
I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?

Any MBB consultants here that did not go to a Top Tier college? I didn’t come close to going to a top tier school, but have 6 years of big 4 experience and a CPA. Wondering if it’s worth a shot
How impacted are summer ‘20 internships for current students? Any cancellations or still moving forward at FAANG, F100, and MBB/B4?
Deciding between UT-Austin, Cornell and UCLA for tech. Scholarships aside, I love texas culture having lived there for a few summers but its the lowest rank on my list. UCLA has one of the best pipelines for tech but I’m not rich and dont know anyone in LA so would i feel left out given the affluence of the area ? And cornell I loved the student body and the inclusive tight knit nature but do they place well in the west for tech? Can anyone help? Thank you!
Out of curiosity- are MBB and Big 4 sold out? I am hearing mixed reactions..ZS is fully sold, Deloitte is firing, Mck is more busy than ever before....what’s the word on the street
Anyone in the Deloitte Tampa office and can tell me what the general culture is like in the audit & assurance practice? From the limited interactions I’ve personally had, Deloitte folks have not been as friendly/kind as other three B4 to me but didn’t want to generalize from my (again, limited) experiences so any input would be greatly appreciated!!!
Is it any easier to get an offer from MBB as an undergrad intern rather than a full time (out of UG) hire?
Received tech non-MANGA offer of 200k salary and 400k RSUs vesting over 4 years. Have been at MBB post-MBA1.5 years w/ ~6 YOE. Is this a good offer? Other option is stay until EM/PL level and seek next level of opps

What’s the wlb/culture at firms outside MBB/Big 4? Been at Deloitte for a couple years and am ready for something different. Thinking OW, LEK, Kearney, or others you know of.

Thoughts on Goodwin in London? Culture, hours, whether people actually enjoy working there, how it’s perceived etc. A lot of the posts here are more in relation to the US offices but I’m keen to understand the London offering.

When is the next round of Deloitte layoffs?
With all the recent layoffs I really hope Deloitte is not internally celebrating their “revenue growth”. For those laid off, wishing you all the best in your job search.💛

Hi ladies! Looking to get creative & brainstorm a bit. 31 y/o female in NYC - most of my friends moved out of the city due to the pandemic. Not many are around to hang with (socially distanced of course). I tried hitting up some of my guy friends and they are always down to hang out but... I always have to make sure they remember it's platonic. ￼ Any ideas on how to make female friends during this time? I'm like...is there an app for that? ￼I am getting Zoom video catch up fatigue.
Anyone with United 1k in jeopardy of not meeting the lowered “move the goalpost” PQP targets? Is there a December promotion or do you think United will pivot to extend status to 2023 in the final hour? Ugh, I don’t want lose 1k but can’t justify ~$5,000 in out of pocket expenses / mileage run. Anyone in the same boat?
Flying EWR-PDX via United on a Weds and PDX-JFK via Delta on a Sun - upgrades are $300 for each. Worth it? Or should I just wait for the possibility of a free upgrade?

How people let go of their urge of fixing problem by themselves when taken a bigger role or moved to different area/domain altogether.
