For my ~30 year old peers, what are your savings — cash and assets? I’ll go: $250k in cash, currently only own a car and have $70k remaining in student loans. Curious to see the spectrum for our profession.
Any leads on summer internships still available (Finance). Friend’s kid had his internship that was “moved-to-remote” now cancel and he’s scrambling. 4.0 gpa @ Creighton. Willing to go anywhere for the summer if there’s anyone still hiring (in person or remote). He’s on track to graduate in 4 years so this really is not great for any of the college kids in a similar boat. Just trying to help him navigate - he’d never ask for help or a favor.
I assume most in this bowl don’t escrow taxes, insurance, etc. Where do you park those funds until the payments are due? HYSA? Brokerage?

I am (forcibly) a recruiting volunteer in my group. I heard the lead talk about how MBA students prefer MBBs over B4s because they all want to do strategy consulting instead of (what are we?) consulting. The plan is to invest in rebranding on campus and sell for the benefits of (what are we) consulting as against strategy consulting. I feel this is a lost cause though. So out of curiosity, if all of us could cut it to MBB, would be still choose B4 instead? I can’t imagine someone in an MBA would
I work for a great boss. I love her and the team and work is great. I want to move up, but the structure is so flat that my only way up would be to get my bosses position. How can I communicate to her that I want career progression in a manner that doesn't sound like I want her job? What would you do if you were the manager? Im not in consulting so its the only way up is to be aiming for her role.
Had a phone interview today at Amazon for a global procurement role. Interview went well, and asking to interview with another individual this week. I candidly asked what level L6/L7, the recruiter said she could not share it is confidential however she did say first year TC is $250k. Is that normal?

What would you do if you got promoted, but your boss wanted to wait 5-6 months to announce it to the team/ for you to update anything externally?
For context - this is a small agency with $$ backing, and I’ve essentially already been doing the role the entire time. The reasoning is “team morale is bad, and other people are also asking for promotions right now”, which I understand, but it feels like I’m having to make a sacrifice.
People always told me to network and reach out to people for roles. But I've never found anything from reaching out. Every role I've gotten has found me. Anyone else have this experience?
MBB what kind of difference should someone expect in types of roles for exit opportunities as a Junior Partner v a Manager? It feels like staying is probably worth it?
Been interviewing several former Big 4 consultants for a tech role and I feel the need to make a PSA. Stop thinking that you are entitled to anything other than a lateral shift in terms of responsibility (comp is a different story and varied wildly). Stop thinking that you’re entitled to a Product role. Stop thinking you are somehow better than others because you worked at the Big 4. All your experience does is get you a slight preference in a resume screen (if that)
Anyone ever have a recruiter call them from a blocked number? I had a recruiter reach out on LinkedIn and I wanted to set up time to talk about the position. They said they would set up a call for this week, but then I got a call from a different recruiter who works at the same company but the number was blocked. She said she would set up time with the hiring manager for an interview and send me an email with her contact information but never did. I have questions but not sure how to reach out

Lately I have had that “I don’t want to be a lawyer anymore” feeling. Problem is I have nothing I want to do. Anyone else go through this too? If so, what was the outcome - did you do something (change firm, reasses…) to change mindset, did you leave practice?
