LBS vs CBS? For context: Sponsored MBB (US office, non-NYC). Want a big city school. Could potentially stay behind in NYC after but not married to it (odds go up for staying in the broader Northeast). Probably wouldn’t stay in London unless I had a really compelling reason. Somewhat interested in tech but that’s not why I’m going to b-school. Given all that: Mainly interested in commentary on the school experiences themselves!
Considering an offer from Proskauer in its L&E department. Anything I should be aware of before accepting? Poor culture, any hostile or particularly unfriendly and demanding partners? From my research everything seems on the up and up. Any insight is appreciated.
How happy are you with your individual team's culture? I was drinking the kool aid until recently and I realized the toxicity within my org - even if my team in MTV thinks I do a kick ass job, my manager controls my rating and makes it seem like I don't do enough.
Creative director for Disney Plus? This would be the first client side job I’ve ever had. No idea If the salary is more or less than what we see in ad agencies. Any tips / insight?
Does anyone know anything about Barbarian’s internal culture? What’s work life balance like? How are the people?

I need advice on when I am, and am not, permitted to buy publicly traded stock shares in which (A) the company is a firm client and (B) I did work for the company. In both scenarios, I lack material nonpublic information about the company; however, I also don’t want to risk the SEC asking questions. Is a 6 month or year-long cooling off period a good rule of thumb? Say after the IPO and doing zero work for the company? The trade would be under $10,000. Any advice would be appreciated. TIA.
Hi, considering moving to Australia, targeting strategy roles (ex MBB exp). Would I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa? Do you know of any successful cases? Otherwise, what are the ways to settle down and work in Australia? Got a EU passport. Cheers!
I am currently a fund accountant and am thinking about jumping ship to a new firm. I’m at a small fund and although the culture and WLB are great, I can see that there is no opening for assistant controller coming any time soon. Is it a bad if I consider looking elsewhere when I’ve only been there for a year? I hear it’s a strong market for candidates so I don’t want to miss out on a potential better opportunity for my career. Greatly appreciate any input.
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!

MBB really missed the boat on this practice area
I’ve been asking for the client to send data since last Wednesday (including 3 times today) for analysis THEY need tomorrow morning!! They seem to be offline for the day, what do I? Just give up at this point? It’s caused me more stress and anxiety than it should have this past weekend and today.
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Anyone work for Jabian? Thoughts on the company as a whole? Also what is the salary range for an experienced consultant?

HR keeps trying to paper me up with speed to output crap because they think I’m sick, but the reality is that I’m terminal and probably won’t be around to see the end of this. God I hope they don’t pretend to put up a caring memorial when I’m gone.

Today, I was awarded the ‘unicorn’ badge. I have so many people to thank, and you know who you are (I don’t, because you’re all anonymous). Most importantly, I want to thank the people in this bowl as I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you so much!! *applause rings out*
