I'm a first year analyst and a little fearful of the travel schedule I'll have to adopt in the coming months. From those more seasoned than myself... what are some tips or best practices to deal with the travel?
Don't even care that I am going to be waking up at ungodly hours and that i'll be running a project for my least favorite client... because I'll be in Chicago baby!
Why doesn't ACN give bonuses to new hires right away? How do you expect a college kid to move to a new city w/ no funds? 😑
Any moms out there? Finding it really tough to work in consulting and be with my kid for only a few hours a day. Luckily I'm local, but not sure how long that will last.
When you are staff and your seniors review everything you do, change a tiny bit, and take as if they did it to present to others, feels like a surrogate mother.
Confession: I'm a new mom traveling and nursing my baby (pumping at work). I'm starting to think the reason I still nurse is to leave the 20 person conf room and go sit in a quiet room for 20 mins.
Kid (clearly a consultant of lesser age than me) tried to cut me in premier boarding line. I blocked him. He's now in a middle seat next to me. Hope he's not planning on having to go to the bathroom.
Just saw a small child boarding and for a brief moment thought they were going up into the overhead compartment with other similar-sized items.
Do you know what the maternity leave policy at your firm is? Mine is 3mos unpaid leave, which I think is quite stingy. 😣😣😣
Fuck you Berkeley Missouri police and you Mother fucking speed trap on I-70. Joke is on you I'm here every week so I'll make that court date...
That moment of dread when a mom with a baby sits in your row. Guess I'm not sleeping this morning. 😨
Hahaha! It is times like these I wish I could post pics. The very pregnant terminal bar waitress just boarded the plane to track someone down who skipped out on a bar tab! #PHL
Do any of you have kids? If so do you find working for the big four manageable with a child?
To the shitty kid crying on the plane: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills. And I will find you, and I will kill you.
Sitting next to a baby on the plane playing with his moms iPhone. Little bastard is setting alarms... This tops em all.
Sippin on Coke and rum, I'm like so what I'm drunk, It's the freakin weekend baby I'm about to have me some fun
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Have you ever blown an interview from a partner, md, etc. intentionally so that they wouldn't staff you on their engagement?
Where can I find out the tax penalties of taking money out of my 401k? Want to purchase options from a startup I worked at but don't have the $ liquid right now.
Anyone get into Kellogg MBA? Any tips on how to prepare in the final year before applying?
Does anyone know how/when bonus MQM's are given?? I googled on delta but just talks about the MQM's not the bonus you sometimes receive!
Mad respect for the grocery store workers still going to work. Thanks for showing up and keeping society from going full on Mad Max. What’s a nice thing to do for them next time I’m in the store?
Y’all got any of that Remdesivir?
Actual question, hoping for explanation on both sides. I know that’s a long shot. Why are people allowed to group white people together (White people are the problem, White people are the worst). Meanwhile it wouldn’t be politically correct to group a minority in the same way (would be considered racist). For a lot of my conservative friends, this is why they are against BLM. Is it because the majority of issues are stereotypes and racism against POC, which is clearly the bigger issue? Thanks
Me: Looks at the partner linkedin pic. Damn- He made it big at a pretty young age. Me again: Meet him in person. And damn realization, that must have been his analyst days pic 😃
Are beautiful people more convincing?
Gillian Anderson aging like fine wine.
