Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?

Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?

Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid

Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.
Was communicating frequently with a McKinsey recruiter who asked me to inform them when I submitted my app for experienced hire.
