How would you rank the major players in the consulting biz based on prestige/ reputation, culture, and quality of skill set?
Attention P-Dubbers: what's the culture like in the advisory practice? Don't give me this 'it varies from office to office' answer that's usually given. Is it cut throat, high stress, easy going, etc?

Read an article in Fortune saying that American and Delta is going to start offering "bare-bone" tickets that are unassigned and even more crowded than coach to compete with Spirit and Co. Ugh.

How much emphasis does your firm put on your personal dollars sold in determining your comp/success and how does it incentivize collaboration? At BCG (1) evaluation is pretty heavily focused on dollars sold (have heard that McKinsey is more focused on 'impact' and 'relationships', even if these are sometimes thinly veiled proxies for revenue) and (2) we are structurally incentivized to involve exactly two other partners in any given project (have heard McKinsey is "the more the merrier").
Amex IVR, you're doing it right: "We see you usually manage your account online, would you like to be connected directly to a representative"... Yes, yes I would. Winning.
Safi, you are smart and amazing! Started reading your book last night. Wish I knew about the book a lot sooner.

How to know if we've been selected for the H1b?
My friend is wondering how to approach a raise conversation with her new boss. A data analyst on her team left so she’s been taking over that position on top of her regular job (spending ~50% of her time) and working a lot more now (40 hrs a week to 60 hrs). She’s not really interested in the data work, but she’s happy to do it if she can get a raise. How can she best approach this with a new manager that just joined 1-2 months ago?
