A friend of mine interviewed for an Associate role with McKinsey. He is a masters student (not an MBA) with ~2 YOE. He claims that HR told him that base pay for the role is 230K. Is he bullshitting?

Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?
Hi Fishes, Hope you all are doing well. I have joined tcs last week. I have 10+ yoe. They gave me C3B position with 25 lpa. Can anyone please tell me what kind of role usually C3B - Associate Consultant get into? Is it similar to Team Lead? After joining, till now i just had one interaction with my manager and he asked me to complete all the mandatory trainings first. Also, upon asking about the kind of work he didn't give any clear answer. Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks.
The privilege of being able to work from home... while you see the working class struggle.... is taking a toll on me. I don't know what to do

I have some interviews for product management roles at some Series C/D companies. I have a feeling I'll get at least one offer. Totally new to the start up game but given that these are both well onto the road to IPO (according to them) can I have them give me a breakdown of equity, strike price, outstanding shares etc? One is a PMM role too. 31, female in Boston if location maters at all when considering any of the above.

Has anyone been denied by another b4’s TAS/FDD service group but been able to apply for the same role at another/same office? And if so, how soon after?
I did an initial interview with a firm Thursday morning. They asked for references and I provided them the following day along with my thank you note. In past experiences, I would have heard something by now unless they were not interested at all. Am I wrong to just write this one off?
I'm conflicted. Should I give up the Deloitte prestige for 85% raise? Similar job, but the company doesn't have the greatest reviews from the people I spoke with. What would you do?
Best exit opp you've seen a partner take ?
Captain your career they said, you pick your specialty they said, the culture is great they said. 🤦🏽♂️
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
Any AlixPartners 🐠 had their compensation talks? Are you happy with your raise and bonus?
Any recommendations for a portable second monitor? Ideally something that would fit in a carry-on? Since I’m still WFH, I’m taking a week-long trip to visit my sister. We’ll both be working during the week and I’d like to avoid working only from a laptop if I can.

Has anyone tried out the Branch Furniture ergonomic desk chair? If so, would you recommend it? If not, which chair would you recommend?
Can we use work phones abroad? I am taking a vacation but need to take a client call around the same time I land at destination. Can I just dial in to the call business as usual assuming It’s 1 hr?
Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.
I'm new to the industry and this is my first corporate job. Been working as a BI analyst for about 2.5 years and I roughly make $80k. I'm having a hard time trying to gauge how much should I be making, or if I speak to my manager about increasing compensation how much to ask for so I won't sound absurd. Do you all have any tips on this or are there any tools that I can use to accurately gauge how on average much I should be earning?
I don’t sign into teams on Fridays and someone on my project acts like i’m unreachable when they can just text me or email me ugh.
Hi everyone. A PDM specialist here. Joined Deloitte 5+ years back as ‘Senior Solution Engineer -On-site’.Later in June 2017 all these ‘on-site’ folks got rebranded as PDM. Slowly started to realize how PDM is getting sidelined as a ‘discountable’ group. Sometimes I feel contract jobs are better than being at PDM , but obviously tied up with D for visa related issues.No career progression so far and don’t see any positive changes in the near future as well.I think it’s high time to call it a day.
