People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?
Deloitte PPMDs, I can't figure out why D would not just reduce the number of temporary visa workers under H1B program vs. firing 5% of its workforce that are probably mostly US citizens. As seen here, D got approved for 57,259 temporary visas. Please explain. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/deloitte-top-participant-in-h-1b-foreign-worker-program-by-far
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.
How to react when an MD asks the only woman in the meeting (me) to ping someone to ask if that person is still joining the meeting? He could have done it himself...
Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?
26, no kids or debt, making 175k/Yr - miserably bored at work and want to work for a startup. In the size startups I want for the role I want I’d have to take 50% pay cut Thoughts?
I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Has anyone been put on a PIP and successfully gotten through it? Seeking advice & support on how to navigate this. Please no jokes or jabs.
Bravo Deloitte 🙌 Laid off a Senior and a year later, offer staff/intern position. Consulting or insulting🥴
My friends little sister is graduating undergrad and has an offer from Strategy& for $100k and McKinsey for $90k (pretty sure McK is going to bump soon). Im obviously biased to McK but want to show her other perspectives. Which one should she choose and why?? And and all feedback is welcomed!
Thoughts on this?
A lot of my close friends in Tech are SWEs and are making ~400-500k / year. I am in Consulting and make ~160k/yr. I know this is already a lot and I am super privileged, but I still struggle with comparison. I have no interest in being a SWE but I still struggle with the lesser money I make. How do I deal with this apart from aspiring for higher paid professions?
Just got an offer from McK for Associate position. Told my dad and now he says he’s not paying for my MBA since I landed this without it. Can’t believe he’s doing this. Sure, he paid for my UPenn undergrad, but MBA isn’t that much more 🙄
Pwc fishes, care to comment?
Should I take a year off work to travel? Why or why not? If you’ve done something similar, could you share your experience? Any regrets? Any advice?
My company is now displaying!

That awkward moment when your client whips out an electronic cigarette and starts puffing away mid presentation.
Got United to change its website due to my complaints and explanations that they weren't following the posted first class meal service policies. Proud and laughing at myself at the same time 👍🏽😂
I feel like any relationship I'm in, I'm in a long distance relationship. Anyone else feel this way?
More Serious. How many have friends struggling to find a job? I still have a few from college out for ~2 years. I keep hearing the economy is improving, unemp is down. I consider myself fortunate.
Everybody I know wants to get out of this project. It's only this project or you guys too???
The app which needs your linkedin details to find out the "truth" about your company name and still claims to be anonymous. Questionable!
Idk why I pack all these different outfits when I go home. We all know I'm going to wear the same sweats for three days straight
