I started a new role in BizOps over the summer at a late stage FinTech startup making $150K base ($15K signing bonus) and stock options. I previously worked at a T2 consulting firm and went to a non-HYP Ivy for undergrad. Have 4 YOE (will be 5 at matriculation) I’m debating whether I should pursue an MBA. Long term goal is entrepreneurship / FinTech for developing economies. I don’t think I’d want to go back into consulting and I don’t think PE/VC is very feasible either. Any thoughts?
Anyone applied or worked at McAfee? Would like some background or info on what’s company is like and comp package beyond base. Have a 1st round next week for a Strategic and Biz Dev role.
What will be the in-hand salary in Accenture if fixed pay is 13.5 lpa and monthly is given as 112668 INR in break up salary sheet?
Discovered that my salary is below the prevailing wage (level 4). Does it mean the company is violating the law by hiring me at below-prevailing-wage rate? What should I do about it?

Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level).

Relocation is not necessary, as long as you’re in CET time zone and live close to an airport. DM me for more information! Cheers

I’ll be short of RSM’s billable hours goal of 1600 by around 300 hours by the end of fiscal year end. How fucked am I?
Has anyone heard a firm-wide policy that ALL time spent billing is to be self-written off by associates and is not bonus eligible? Have heard from a friend that a firm I am considering lateraling to has such a policy. Red flag?
So EY Advisory, Deloitte Advisory, Grant Thornton, etc have recently mandated 45 billable hours/wk, up from 40. Clearly this isn't firm-specific. Anyone have any insights on what's really going on?
I can't wait 'til the day I can quit. As audit ain't nothing but bullshit. Audit programs won't be a bore. Time entry won't be a chore. Realization, billable hours will be no more.

Hi ladies! Does anyone use Butcher Box delivery? Making an effort to cook more and shed a few covid pounds. Would love to know what the quality of their products are like.
This company has purchased tickets to fly me over for an interview next week. It’s going to be interesting to see if they mandate WFH before next week, thus postponing my interview.
Just wanted to say, I visited Atlanta last weekend with some friends and the black excellence was such an unexpected and welcoming culture shock. From the min I landed I was not a minority in literally any location we went to. It made me realize that there’s a deferent relaxing feeling when you truly blend in.
