Any recommendation on where to find/recruit engineers with specialized skills? Specifically scala.
So is it normal that the client hates me because I load them with a lot of work and expect them to ALWAYS finish on time? We had good relationship during workshop but not so much after execution.
PARTNERS: two questions —1. If you see an associate has really low hours for the month, do you imagine them chillen on a beach somewhere or do you consider they probably spent most of their days sitting in front of the computer being “available”? 2. If you send an associate a random e-mail on a weekend like “Can you pull X and send to Y”, would you get annoyed if they responded saying they weren’t by a comp or would you consider it reasonable that they wouldn’t be by a comp on a weekend?
Anyone have experience leaving NYC for a ‘3rd tier’ market (v small city). I’m debating a move —it would mean a 50% salary cut but hopefully a better balance and a happier me! Thoughts?
Currently at Big 4 management consulting post-MBA. Have offers with MBB and FAANG (strategy). Similar comp. Which would you take?
Pro of consulting: top hotel and airline status. Con of consulting: being asked to book rooms and flights for every wedding and bachelor party because of said status. #weddingseason
I have seven years' experience in executive search (based in APAC but have worked on global roles) and want to leave the industry for either an in-house talent role or a consulting firm. I haven't had much luck when I've applied for internal roles in the past. Do I have any chance at getting an in-house talent acquisition role, or is an executive search skill set just regarded as too weird/not the right fit for internal talent teams?
Please read about our awesome senior partner and US chairman of PwC LLP (aka captain of this boat) the humble Tim Ryan. So glad someone of his stature is taking a stand #PwCvalues http://fortune.com/pwc-diversity-tim-ryan/
Strategy leadership role at a little less known company similar to palantir or managerial role at Google? Thoughts?
Just as an idea, this new Lincoln Project ad is bananas. To make Trump the audience for an anti-Trump ad—to tell him to be MORE paranoid....to understand the thing he’d hate the most is other people making money, or looking good on TV....to try to make him eat himself from the inside....it’s kind of evil but so unexpected. Slicing an artery rather than swinging with a sledgehammer. https://youtu.be/bk6d4TgO2NY

Green Card Q - my GC is currently in process, however SO and I plan to move out of US this year. What will happens to my GC application ? Will this have any impact on future visa applications for US?
Went to the wrong hotel because the client books all travel and I was too used to going to the same one for 6 months. Oops. Also Hilton where the hell is my mini fridge? #marriot4life
I have a feeling my time is coming to an end. What’s the most strategic path to a partner withdrawing? Quitting on my terms once I’ve secured another partner role or waiting to get let go?
Does anyone have advice for switching to a competing (boutique) firm without causing animosity? I’m a first year, and my current firm took me in like a stray cat and nurtured me, but now their direct competitor (and better) firm is trying to poach me. I’m caught between loyalty for my current firm and a better career trajectory at firm B (partnership track, more $, rockstar senior attorneys, better cases). I just feel HEAVY guilt and would want to reduce any ill feelings if I do leave. Possible?
Is it ever a bad idea to pursue backdoor Roth IRA? (if you don’t need the money for another 20 years). Context: ~$300k income, maxing out 401k, maxing out traditional IRA
