I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day.. They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣 Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...

Campus recruiters at professional service firms — has scheduling final rounds changed in a virtual world for your firm or do you still try to schedule your candidates on Fridays with a full day of back to back interviews? Is it easier or now preferred to schedule ad hoc through the week? I was on maternity leave last year during COVID and I’m curious if preferences for students (or interview teams) have changed? I would still think the former/old way is better from work planning perspective.

I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
I have interviewed w/ every member of an early stage start up & have an offer to join as their 1st hire. I just don't trust their technical co-founder to be able to execute or attract the right talent, so I'm going to walk away from it. I trust the other co-founder though and want to be honest. Should I be blunt when saying why? Would anyone here have actually appreciated to hear this if you were in a leadership position at a start up, or is co-founder status too late to make a change anyway?
Does anyone think follow ups with doctors are sometimes scammy? I recently got pretty sick saw 3 different doctors each refered me to the next finally the last one decided I needed emgrecy surgery and took care of me. The thing is each doctor wants me to come back and have a follow up with them and I'm like no.
I believe "Qualified Immunity" regulations be extended to Teachers and Coaches, like the cops have. We both police less and demand less from the public as it erodes. Should this be fought for by our unions/legislatures?
Partners - a candidate has made it to the final round with you. What do you notice and what sets apart a great candidate? More of a poll than a “here’s how to ace an interview."
Has anyone taken lessons at GolfTEC or a golf store (golf galaxy, pga superstore)? I typically play in the mid 80s but can’t get into the 70s. Looking for lessons to improve and get a little more consistent.

Has anyone leveraged an offer at another firm to get a raise at their current firm? If so, were you successful and were there any long term impacts within the current firm because they think you tried to bail? (Getting recruited by other firms for higher TC but enjoy current firm’s project types more.)
Non-MBA Senior associate that got manager promo at big four but also a Sr Program Manager at Amazon. Amazon is still offering better pay even with the manager promo but I have built a strong brand at my consulting firm and have been getting promoted almost every year. Not sure if I should leave knowing I am on partner track and go to Amazon and work hard again to build such a strong brand there too. What do you guys think? I like and am comfortable at my current firm but money wise I’m not happy
