Book recommendations for using my 3 audible credits? Prefer narrators who aren’t dryer than the Sahara. Would like something business/ consulting related if exists. Also enjoy nonfiction, sci Fi and fantasy
This is for my real estate agents. I’m brand new into the business and I adore the work. What tips or pointers can you give to a new agent- I’m in Las Vegas if it helps to be specific. If anyone has any book recommendations that’d be awesome as well. I’m looking to learn anything and everything. For example, learning what I can and can’t do to make a deal close

T2 strategy consulting associate (pre-MBA) with an offer to join PE boutique. Worth it if the eventual goal is working at a MM PE or large VC fund? What would be the most realistic route? 2Y PE > MBA > VC? PE Form has a SaaS focus so I’d assume that’s a plus.
Has anyone ever applied to MBB multiple times before getting accepted? Or is the blacklisting thing real?
For those of you who had worked in both EY and PwC for tax (corporate tax). How do they compare in terms of culture/hours? I’ll be joining PwC’s ITP group.
What limitations if any do I have as a manager who has been offered an internal role at a previous client? Does Deloitte place any non-competes on managers to prevent clients from poaching them?
Thoughts on targeting a super small area? I have a client in the Detroit Area who just wants to target ONE suburb for a specific campaign.
What jobs can I apply for with an AWS Solution Architect (Associate) certification? Really have an interest in the field after doing the exam, but I don’t have a ton of experience besides the lab work. I have 3 yoe of consulting experience but that has just been mostly PowerPoint / Basic consulting work.
Anyone get promoted mid year After receiving the bonus/review? (No pay increase for the promotion)
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Would love to hear your negotiation wins and fails, and lessons learned. One of my learnings is simply to ask. If you don't ask the answer is definitely no. My example was asking for additional equity. I got back a no, but was offered a signing bonus.
Does anybody know if BCG / McK has raised undergrad Associate / Analyst compensation in SEA?
Do you guys show promotions on your official resumes? Like how many years at each role or do you just say SC or M or whatever?
Resigning while on paternity leave - should i wait till get back then submit resignation or can I resign while on leave and still get paid while on leave? Engagement will appreciate the advanced cont.
Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?

Anyone know the deal with distinguished achievement? How many people get it? How much better is your raise/bonus? Etc
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
Can someone compare (type of work, exit opps, comp, etc.) consulting at a major firm for a tech sector group vs. a financial services sector group?
