New employer’s parental leave policy is silent on whether you have to return to work for a certain period after the leave in order to avoid having to pay back to leave. Are pay back clauses common?
Hey! When asked about your current CTC in a negotiation, do you include all benefits? I recently read a post where someone said they include the value of all benefits such as reimbursements. This seemed like good advice for those who have a low CTC and would like to negotiate a higher package in a new role. What do you usually include? Any other advice for working around the CTC question and ask for the market rate? I'm particularly interested in negotiations at Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase

Thoughts on CAIA? Difficulty, hours studied, study tips, overall experiences, etc.? I’ll be sitting for Level 1 in September. Currently work in the fund of funds space - moving over to my firm’s hedge fund research team soon so CAIA seemed like a perfect way to get knowledge in the area beforehand. I’m almost one year out of undergrad (econ background) so a lot of the CAIA content is new to me

Is our industry as competitive as some say? I see a lot of people saying this and I work with a bunch of hacks (myself included). It felt like a little while ago agencies were begging to hire new talent, and most couldn’t find new people. Is it really that hard to get a job at an agency? Maybe I’m just out of touch being in this career for so long.
Hello! Does anyone know of any openings for diversity and inclusion drivers/promoters in India? I joined as an HR analyst at Accenture as a fresh graduate 3 months ago but this is not really the role I was looking for. I have quite a lot of experience in diversity and inclusion related themes. Any leads/suggestions/advice would be appreciated!

Newbie fish here, question for the BCG folks. I am currently in the process for a knowledge analyst position, specialized in an industry I really like. I enjoy the fact that they have a client-facing track, and you act as sort of a bridge between research insights and cases. Do you confirm this is the case? Or it's more fuss and it's a B-role of just supporting without critical tasks? I understand BCG should have higher consideration of KTs compared to the others.
