You have to get up for your flight 🤗
Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
hi all- I am on h1b currently from india. unable to find visa slots in the next few months. can I bring my fiancé to USA ( she has b1/b2) visa and get married over here .?
Anyone who is on an H1B in consulting (strategy/ operations) tried visa transfer recently to Tech strategy roles? Wanted to understand if people have had a smooth sail or is there any reason to worry about timelines? Just can’t go on at McKinsey tbh. Thanks
Favorite Marriott or SPG hotels in DC?
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
19 years ago today, I was giving a pitch at Canadien Tire in Niagara Falls. The meetings were cancelled, but the borders were closed and I could not return to the US for 3 days. I ended up driving my rental car home to Denver and was there before any flights were up.
Nothing feels better than coming back home, cracking open a beer, and celebrating the last time I travel for consulting. I’m outta here!
went on production in LA and my ECD texted me if I would share a bottle of wine with him in his hotel room. I said no. I don’t know if this is worth mentioning to HR...
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.

🐠 that kicked ass in a PMO role, question for you: any tips or micro habits that worked for you in terms of meeting firm & client expectations? Know its a loose term and is project specific but just want to know what skills I should hone.
Anyone has insights to offer on the culture within Deloitte's Strategy & Analytics practice? I am considering a move to a SC position. Thanks!
Don’t MBA programs most want the people who don’t need/want to go to business school (Private equity associates already making tons, successful startup founders, etc)? Seems like they don’t really want anyone who actually needs business school for their career.
Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
Have you ever seen one of the nicest, most talented, hardest working people get fired for no good reason. Really breaks my heart about how heartless this industry can be ☹️
On the Bloomberg Article about Faster Promotion/Pay Raises: Who at MS is trying to get your boy a job?! 😂
Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
