Got staffed 3rd day of joining, bench is deep. Not sure if they just need someone or if it's really a good opportunity. What are questions to ask? Was told it's great to launch career here.
*In client review* Emo me: “Just for the record the weather today is slightly sarcastic with a good chance of A. Indifference and B. Disinterest in what the critics say."
I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

How much do you take home after tax and maxing pre tax 401k while making 144k? Not sure if I'm doing something wrong with my withholding. I'm married filing jointly withholding at a single rate, 1 federal and 1 state. DC location. I'm only taking home $6k a month.
I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?
Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
