How do i enter in VC at an analyst position (pre-MBA). I have been working in a consulting firm (focused on healthcare. Not MBB) in India for the last 2 years and have applied on the career portals/cold emailed multiple VC firms. I havent received any response till date and was wondering what would be the right way to go about this since its a very small network in India . Any lead or guidance is appreciated. Thanks.
Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
So I live in a state that offers paid family medical leave and my company makes me manage applications with the state. I am supposed to get part of my paycheck from the state and part of it from short term disability (managed by Sedgwick who are THE WORST.) I received no guidance from HR on the type of leave I needed to apply for with the state so followed the instructions I was given by the state. Apparently I was supposed to file for a different type of leave and now no one is paying me…

Citi folks - new at citi and just found out that they do not provide laptops 🤯. Now I’m concerned with how the technology is otherwise? How is WLB? Do they reimburse if you purchase a laptop to use? Any insights will be greatly appreciated. TIA
Why is maternity coverage for Wipro's health insurance so less? Haven't seen such a less coverage in any of the company I know.. even for small start ups they have much better coverage..
What fund would you recommend to invest Roth IRA money in? I had started an account with EJ when I was straight out of college and didn't know much about investing. But now realizing EJ charges pretty high trade fees for buying with them. Also, while the Franklin Templeton funds they have me in have great returns, the expense ratios are close to 1%. So, looking for something with good returns but more cost-effective.
EY sick days. People who work at EY, how does it work? Is the policy strict (doctors note etc.) or pretty laid back and people actually use them?
Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!
Anyone here used their Amex platinum on apps like remitly? I know the exchange rate is slightly lower if we pay by CC/DC but I guess if we make MR points should make up for it?
Time to declutter! Getting rid of stuff you don't need is proven to help reduce anxiety. Where do you start? Grab a box or trash sack and designate one for donation and one for trash. Do this at the beginning of the week and commit to filling both up by the end of the week. Post a before and after pick. This challenge is worth 5 points total.
For those of us that have to expense everything on the corporate AMEX, is it better to get a personal Platinum Amex over the Chase Sapphire?
Should I get bonvoy points for a stay my company paid for directly? It was a $2,200 stay so I would like my points. So far I’ve only received points for my $20 bar tab. 🥴
What to do for a spouse who is struggling emotionally but refuses to get professional help? I’m 17 weeks pregnant with our first. My husband is really struggling with emotional/ mental health. I’ve asked him to consider counseling or other medical alternatives. Instead, he wants to talk to me until 11:30 pm or 12 am at night. I want to be there for him but I can’t. I’m tired. I’m still working VERY full time, and I was just diagnosed with early onset preeclampsia 😫
Got greedy and bought in ARK funds. Down 8-14% depending on which one. Do you recommend I hang on till it gets back up or cut losses? I like the holdings (high growth) but don’t like the expense ratio for long term
Can anyone that has taken disability leave because of stress/anxiety/depression share their story? I came back from the doctor and they strongly advised I take one and I’m looking for some hope.
10.6 million people have already voted compared to 1.4 from 4 years ago. Folks aren’t voting early because they’re happy with the status quo. Get ready for a blue wave, cult 45. ✌️
Long live the Last few days of notice period, when you just check mails while in CC and giggle mischievously.
Ok so I opened up a Roth IRA. Question is, would you guys have it managed and pay the percentage or do it yourselves? If you rather have it managed is it worth to pay a little more to not have the...

I can’t stop thinking about my ex-girlfriend. She is truly an amazing individual and due to my family’s behavior and my inability to speak up to defend her in front of my mom, I lost her. Now the thought is constant of what could have been. 😢
Just lost out on a house. I was all cash $550k and got beat by another all cash at 650k. No house is worth an extra 100k in DFW.

Not really sure what board is proper for this. But has anyone had an experience where your boss required paperwork for a raise? I started my job as an account manager at a less than reasonable salary, but I was under the impression that I would be able to grow and would have help. A lot of work is dumped on me at one time and all the responsibility falls to me, it's often way to much work for one person. I tried to negotiate a raise with my boss and lead with the fact that I was moving to the area and the salary was not conducive to rent here. He cut me off after my first point and said he'd figure it out. I never got to tell him about my workload. Long story short he required a lease agreement for me to get this raise. It took quite a while to get one... had a few places fall through. My landlord is in the middle of moving so was only able to forward me a PDF of the document that was unsigned, until she has time to meet. Now my boss wants a signed lease with all my roommates signatures too. This is not part of the contract I signed that simply says "provide a lease agreement"... tips?
Any PMs at consultancies that actually work on outcome driven roadmaps, eg fuzzy time horizons dedicated to outcomes as opposed to deliver feature A, B, C?
