Where exactly is the TSA pre line in EWR terminal C? The last few times I’ve flown out of EWR, it’s been so confusing ...
Sitting here in SFO airport and the gate agent has organized a paper airplane contest with 15 people or so. The Prize is a free drink on the plane

I dreamed that it was snowing in ATL and my flight was delayed until tonight. My dream lied to me :(
Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.
Frequent flyers out of EWR. What’s the TSA-pre line like at Term C on a Monday morning at 06.30? Newbie here... thanks!!
￼￼flying out of the US tonight, still curative hasnt returned my pcr results yet. Anyone do the pcr test in LAX? How early should I go?
30F, thinking about separating from my marriage and looking at cities I could move to. Currently working in ATL and I’d need to come back at least once a month(prefer driving) since I’d still be working/based here. Ideas on affordable yet fun cities? I make 120k right now & I’d prob take the dog with me. TIA! 💚💜
3 yr assoc. just moved to mid firm. Brought files with me which have collected my salary to date - 4 months. Does not even include other work yet firm is questioning me re billable hours. Reasonable?
Any quick fixes on burnouts? Have been working at least 200% since September last year. I have multiple big deadlines all due today, and I have been writing slides while crying for the last 2 hours – it’s just slow and painful. Need to pull myself together and just do the work because well, I need the job, and in this economy no one else is hiring.
Bain AC1 & AC2 total comp figures? Wondering if the lateral is worth it with 3 YOE at ACN Strat.
Unlimited PTO isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
“A child really isn’ that expensive in the first 3-4 years” ~ Spouse 7 months ago. Our bank account after 7 months of pregnancy says otherwise. I’m excited to be a father and I want to be a good father, but there is zero chance this child is going to remember or even care what decorations we chose for the nursery. Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?
Thoughts on using wealthfront/betterment vs just buying low cost index funds (voo and vti) on Robinhood? I’ve been doing both throughout the last 1.5 years and have seen much better performance on the latter. Curious if people think there are other benefits to using wealthfront ?
What’s the best thing for a new associate to do to get on billable work? I was mapped to an industry I have no experience in; how do I start gaining experience when I don’t have the experience to get on these projects?
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account? I confirmed from the HR that it is a support and development role and has only day shift. Just doubting the shift, I can't work in night shifts How is the work life balance in Wipro? Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

Someone could talk about STEAM? activities and how to use this kind of learning in the classroom.
Just needed to vent. Me: I’m so tired since baby’s been going through a sleep regression lately. It’d be great if you could watch her most of tomorrow so I can get a break
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication
Interesting reading while dyslexic challenge. I read it better than I expected, which I think is due to my own ADHD-related reading disability (cont)
