On calls / talking to "superiors" was a noticeably different pitch than otherwise. I've never gotten this feedback, and have since tried to maintain my masculine / normal sounding voice through calls. Anyone else deal w this?

Yea somewhat. Though, as I've gotten more comfortable I keep my voice normal/lower. Helps me come to the table at a more level playing field to my superiors.

Yeah this very common and closely tied to upspeak, good to be conscious of it and with that it's pretty easy to change

Will go away as u gain confidence and willing to be more sassy/give less of a fk. I've also noticed that as I've moved up my firm, I've gone from feeling like partners are scary as shit to being my friends. Takes time.

WSB literally saved GME, it’s pretty nuts. So for those that made $$ congrats but it’s just luck, you ain’t a genius. And to all the novice investors on this bowl, GME is as big as an anomaly that can exist in the market. Don’t follow stocks blindly like this as you can be burned bad.
What’s wild about GME’s current valuation is that they can just issue equity and payoff all their debt now (recall this company was almost filing for bankruptcy)...

It’s interesting when recruiters are looking for “3-4 YOE” from “top tier strategy firms”, casually mention that they’ve placed ex MBB on the team, and then act shocked when you say comp expectations are 170 all in. Don’t many strategy firms regularly pay their senior associates or the like around 165 base?
