Same. 1000%. Almost quit a few times tbh.


Same. You’re not alone. I just gave my essays a break for a bit. I just can’t wait to submit everything and get it over with. Up until the deadline, it feels like improvements can always be made so it’s always on my mind.


Same. Sigh.

Any PwC peeps dealing with the benefits enrollment stuff? I'm on the open access plan now and I want to switch to the HDP but I'm nervous about it

Why do boomers assume that everyone wants to continue on the corporate rat race forever? My uncle is f500 exec and he said “you’ll be an exec one day” to me and I said “no I won’t” because that sounds absolutely miserable. His response was “have some confidence!” I’m 3 years into this slog and I feel like I’ve already wasted too much of my life staring at excel sheets for 80 hours a week waiting for someone to tell me I’m ready to be promoted and get a raise. The money ain’t worth it.

Interviewing for Sr Analyst Corp Strategy role... One year consulting, two years industry experience. How much should I be asking for (SF/LA area) and is it worth leaving?

BCG is getting shredded on Twitter. The mob is going crazy with conspiracy theories about consulting. How will this end?!


Has anyone here bought property outside their country of birth/citizenship? I'm an Indian on a work visa in the us, smitten by the idea of buying a nice little apartment in/outside Amsterdam


Considering moving from fed consulting to industry. New company won't pay for relocation across country but offering 20% pay increase. Would you do it?
