I joined fishbowl a month ago and while I’ve seen a couple contentious debates but I must say I’m pleasantly surprised at how respectfully ppl comment on this app even when disagreeing. Usually anonymity on the internet brings out the absolute worst in ppl; they type things anonymously that they would NEVER say in person smh. But I really haven’t seen horrible comments here. I wonder what makes this app diff frm others?

I would love to hear what other people have to say about onboarding remotely because I will be going through the process myself in a few weeks. of course I will share my experience as I’m going through it!
I currently earn $300,000USD as a 1st year in the London office of a V10. This is base + COLA, however, I am thinking of moving to the USA, because I feel that in the next 4 years when I leave biglaw I will have better in-house/ government opportunities in the USA than in the U.K.
I neither have family in the US nor in the U.K, so that’s not a consideration. But I feel that leaving all this money on the table to go earn 215K as a 2nd year Associate in the States is foolish. Any advice?

Hi, is it normal to ask for a raise after a year and a half as an Associate consultant in Paris? Currently I make 43,000
Minus 50 hours short of my charge plan (or 2.8%). Impacts me at round tables if otherwise I'm doing a good job?
Two weeks in at a (contract) client gig and not having Slack (or any form of instant messaging across the office) is driving me crazy.
Anyone else feel tired of "maintaining your brand"? You have to jump over hurdles and endure whatever your client/engagement lead throws at you at the expense of your happiness and well being.
Yes, it's what you signed up for but its so easy to be abused by awful leaders. They can insult and retaliate against you however they want... I know, welcome to consulting. Whatever.
I am looking to industry hopefully for a better culture and team....

I recently accepted an offer at MBB as a generalist consultant. I am a CFA and FRM charterholder but I get the feeling that neither one is really seen as an achievement at MBB. Is that feeling correct or have I just not seen any advantages yet? Also I am wondering what advantages would CFA or FRM charters have at PE firms?

I was laid off in June. Most consulting companies are on a hiring freeze that I’ve talked to. It’s pretty hard on my psyche to not get down on myself. I worked so hard to get to Deloitte and now it feels like I’m starting over. It’s tough. Any advice on companies that are hiring? I only want to go if it is a fit not just anywhere you know. Thanks.

I don’t understand why companies ask candidates to fill out a laundry list of questions via email prior to a phone screen or hiring manager round. Feels like TA is trying to outsource their jobs to the candidates. Read my resume or take notes during our call. 🚩
