To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
Does anyone know if I have a paid membership to United Club lounges, can I access Marahaba lounges at DXB? Traveling on emirates, status on UA.....
I am in a dilemma in deciding between boutique opportunity and waiting for MBB interviews. I have received a corporate consulting offer with ok pay, amazing work life balance and high quality colleagues (Almost all MBB) but the title is not high from Country A I am interviewing for final round at MBB in Country B (high compensation and low tax)-they have a hard time scheduling interviews because they are very busy (even after I told them I have offers) I am interviewing for the first round at MB
What’s the correlation between compensation & happiness? I have never been a very happy person (depressed from time to time) and my comp is only 150k. What compensation do I need to reach so that I can become immediately happy? 200k, 300k, 500k?
Leaving NYC for Austin soon. What’s the best car I can get, new or used, for $25k? I’ll likely only be in Austin for 2 years before I leave for another job or an MBA, so something that’s friendly for first time drivers and has a decent resale value (or can be used by my parents) is a plus.
Any tips for interviewing for a corporate in-house role having a mostly litigation-based background (having practiced 3 years total)?
Are you incoming staff 1? What’s your starting salary for your city and service line? I’m really skeptical that firms will be paying those of us that progressed less than incoming staff just out of my own experience where I came in as staff 1 earning more than the staff 2 when I started for the same service line.
Hey guys, which country/city are you’ll booking H1-B visa stamp appointment dates? Are you getting any appointments for this year?
Do you think sprint oriented development - where you ship features every two weeks - is the best type of dev culture?

Anyone take CISM? Similar difficulty to CISA?
https://hbr.org/2020/01/what-top-consulting-firms-gets-wrong-about-hiring thoughts? Article mentions case interviews as a poor predictor of performance.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Any insights into annual raises, performance bonus (avg., min-max %) for Senior Lead/VP at Northern Trust, Chicago? TIA ! Northern Trust
A partner asked me if I was planning on having a 2nd child. We are a small, close firm, so it wasn’t a weird question for us. I told him no, and that it had to do with my husband’s age/health (47 with multiple health issues, I’m 32.) But the real reason is that, while I love my firm, and though it’s clear the partners want to believe they are family-friendly, I felt completely unsupported as a mother once my son was no longer a newborn.

Has anyone heard anything about the full time MBA program at UF? I simply want a respectable degree to work in industry in Florida after b4 tech consulting - appreciate any insight
