I've been watching Bulge Bracket on Amazon, and despite it being about banking, I've found it way more relatable than House of Lies. Crazy hours, churning documents, changing font sizes, fixing models, etc. The show could easily be about consulting.

It was great. Diverse young cast. I laughed a little too hard given how true to life the situations told in the series. Hope to see a longer season two.

Everything is true to life for consulting minus the big bucks and power talked about in the end.


Is the show actually good?

Amazon competing with Quibi

Watched the trailer and this looks my life (she’s even an fresh-grad Asian female too)

It’s cringe, but they 100% consulted real bankers when making it

“I got into Berkeley”, “But your brother went to Harvard”

I loved it, so many parts were accurate. Some things (generally the less important things) were exaggerated for comedic effect.

Update: just watched the whole series. Relatable, but not sure if general audiences would get it/like it in the way Silicon Valley has more mass appeal than just tech bros

The Booth application form asks you to enter frequency of involvement in an Activity in hours/year but then the application preview shows that number as “hour(s) per week”. Has anyone else noticed this? How are you entering the hours? I don’t want my app to show “120 hour(s) per week” for a volunteer activity...

I thought it works be good to open it up and get your tips and tricks on surviving womanhood!
Thank you!

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference.

Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

Assuming single income, no other debt. A bit humbling because that feels like a 5 year goal
