It is nearing the end of the school year, and I find myself struggling with patience. This passage is written on my mirror and I read it to myself each morning as a reminder of my calling to serve in love, patience, and gentleness. I hope it is an encouragement. (See in comments)

1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 12We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 14And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. 15See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16Rejoice always, 17pray without ceasing, 18give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19Do not quench the Spirit. 20Do not despise prophecies, 21but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22Abstain from every form of evil. 23Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.

Probably a stupid question so I apologize for asking it in advance. I was having a discussion with a buddy about A&M and AlixPartners and this friend who works at AlixPartners sounded a bit arrogant about the fact that he chose AlixPartners over A&M. How does fish fam view those two companies? I feel they both are equally prestigious, have equally good exit opportunities, regularly poach each other’s employees and pay equally well. Thoughts ?


Hey, Any Senior Associate Consultant working at Infosys here? Please respond, I want to know few details about this role.


Is there anyone from Gartner who can tell what they think about the benefits. How many days pto, what is the 401k like?, healthcare etc? Any idea how many days PTO dies an associate partner get?


Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?


I don't see many people on here from General Dynamics. What's the culture like? I went to a job fair to be cleared to a TS/SCI and they said the background check will take a little over a year lol.

I found a dream job that I’m uniquely qualified for and applied 2 weeks ago and still haven’t heard anything. I messaged the hiring manager on LinkedIn after applying to express my interest and they said they’d pass my name onto the recruiter. Is it appropriate to find a company recruiter on LinkedIn and try to reach out as well…or should I keep waiting? I want to be proactive so I don’t miss a shot at an interview, but don’t want to come off as pushy or desperate.


Is it easier to make Partner at a Big 4 or get into senior leadership in industry?

Hey, it’s a holiday!


Setting up our first small business 401k! Should we be an ERISA 3(38) advisor? What are the pros and cons?


Does anyone have a SO who doesn’t quite get the whole remote work thing? My SO sees nice weather outside and wants to leave in the middle of the day to grill or get outside, and gets frustrated when I say I need to stay on the computer. I don’t have crazy amounts of work, but I do have a manager who needs to know the hours I work every day. Does anyone else have a partner like this? If so, what do you tell them?


What does exit opps look like for ‘consultants’ with only agency experience? Is it difficult to get back into a marketing role after a year or two of consulting?
