Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾
Asalamualaikum everyone, hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday and some Black Friday shopping with family and friends? This is my first time in this bowl and I’m liking what I see so far.
Thoughts on Google RTO office date? Will it be pushed back more than Jan 10 with the holiday season and all? Don’t want to relocate if we will be postponing RTO
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
Is vacation a thing?! Cant. Unplug.
If you’re a non-MBB consultant without a top GPA or top 10 undergrad, do you basically have 0 chance at HSW? Curious of the profiles of those who made it with these factors.
Holiday gift exchange at work (virtual, so we’ll be mailing things to people’s houses like a secret Santa). $20-30 suggested price range. I was thinking of sending a 45 miscellaneous assortment pack of little snacks, like a bag of cheez it’s, rice krispy treats, cookies, granola bar, nuts etc. Yay / nay?

Been with the firm 5 years. Leaving for m vacation tonight and not taking my laptop with me for the first time ever. Such a strange feeling
Please help my non-MBB self understand this, everyone keeps saying MBB has set salaries for each level, how does this work if everyone is coming in at different salaries? Is it worth the pay cut?
Any insight into IBB consulting? They are a media boutique that was acquired by Accenture so NOT mbb
Wondering if any of you typically get a holiday gift for the Exec you support, and if you do, what do you typically gift them?
Just got back from the cook islands and looking for my next island vacation. What is your favorite island to visit? Best sand beaches? Good snorkeling or diving?
Did you all have to formally request your SAT, ACT, GMAT scores and send them into MBB after you got an offer?
Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
Anyone here work BlackRock ? How have you liked it? Are y’all remote? What are the benefits like? What are average raises and bonuses like?
What is a reasonable salary expectation for exit opportunities for an audit M1 looking to move into an accounting/reporting role? HCOL (NYC area)
Have an interview with the hiring manager for Solution Engineer at a start-up tomorrow. What are some main things/skills I need to demonstrate to them as a potentially great Solution Engineer? How can I best prep if he asked me to do a demo: should I make some PowerPoint in advance?
What’s the day to day like in audit at a big 4?
Any advice on overcoming language barriers? I just started a new role and am already struggling interpreting some of my coworkers’ English. They are from Russia. I want to approach this in the right way and make sure I don’t offend anyone if I ask them to clarify or explain that I’m not understanding. My boss is from the U.S. so I thought about just asking her to help me translate. I can include an example from an email in the comments. Thanks all in advance!
When are we going to admit that the every week travel requirement was created by baby boomers trying to get away from their wives and kids?
Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
When you check your Delta app Sunday night and the red Sky Priority band magically appears in the top left corner of your trip >>>
Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!
How much equity to ask for a post-series A startup gig, leadership role? Like a general range roughly?
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
During salary discussion, Accenture HR openly told me to expect 50-60 pc of the variable amount. Appreciate the honesty but I mean, then why the hell, boost the CTC like that, what's the freaking point. Provide 60 pc of it then. Atleast the employee feels that he/she has earned the full amount, or close to it. Agree?
Anybody want to work for KPMG? They are on a hiring frenzy and I am happy to give a referral. Shoot me a DM.
“Going to the restroom to rub one out”, 31 year-old female manager whispers to me after meeting with physically attractive male client. Confused - Is this type of banter common? 😧 Was she serious?
i just got my power line bill for 80 dollars between me and my roomate and find this expensive? I live in a 2/2 in FL. Wondering if there are any data points I can use here.
So I typically don’t answer the EEO questions at the end of applications that ask for race and gender. Lately I’ve noticed companies following up via email for this information after I submit the application. Am I the only one who does this? Does it even matter? Any thoughts on the follow up emails asking for the information after the application has already been submitted?
How do you guys prepare for presentation interviews? Do you practice with someone? My voice always ends up shaking at the beginning of a big presentation even if I’m going in confident and know my stuff, any tips for how to avoid/relieve shaky voice?
