If a company revise my offer letter..Is it mandatory to join in that company or can I join in other company as well?
Is there some particular training that partners attend where they learn the most effective ways to drop work on associates at 5pm on Fridays? There are partners who literally give me no work Monday-Friday 4:59pm, but somehow feel entitled to drop crap on me at 5pm every Friday!!!
These pretzels are making me thirsty
This is my second time breaking down and crying in front of my office’s partner. First time was dealing with a tough transition. Now, they were tears of relief over good feedback. How do I stop being such a puddle and grow some thicker skin?
What are your opinions on prenatal genetic testing? Would you recommend doing it? I’m very hesitant about taking it
Anyone go see Love, Simon yet? It’s probably one of my favorite movies ever. Going to go see it again tomorrow
Has anyone here negotiated dog care expenses while traveling for work? I am single, live alone, and have two dogs and it’s not cheap to board them or have a sitter when I travel ($100/day). I am in talks for a job with lots of travel and it would be a significant cost to me to care for them while I’m away. Asking friends to take care of them isn’t a long term solution for a job with 25% travel. Any tips for how to bring this up and ask for this to be covered contractually?
I looking for 1 bhk/2bhk sharing or single occupancy room with basic facilities.

Did any of the JPM employees buy earpods and get them reimbursed as part "WFH camera/headphones" category? #JPMCHASE
Hi, I’m a Medical Lab Scientist wanting to transition into becoming a Data Scientist. Will the boot camps or google certificates suffice in getting me there?
Anybody aware of pay in Clayton Utz . I am talking to a recruiter for Leader - Data Analytics in their forensic and technology services. What designation is a leader ?
H1B transfer to new firm approved. Filed via premium processing. Took 10 days from filing till approval. Posting to serve as a timeline reference for other Desi fish in the cursed H1B boat.
Hi all, I currently work in WM at a BB and I am looking to lateral into IB. Is this doable without going to grad school? Just gave CFA L1 today hoping this might help a bit. Any help is much appreciated!
Question on Wharton - do you all think Wharton these days prefers people with some sort of tech background and entrepreneurship goals post MBA? I’m imagining W is trying to catch up with H/S on tech and entrepreneurship fronts but it’s just my guess.
A follow up question - is entrepreneurship truly not competitive at W?
Got an offer recently for 100,000 MR to upgrade my existing Amex gold to platinum. I can easily make the spend but is it worth it? Honestly I was getting ready to cancel my gold card since I haven’t been traveling as much.

We finished home improvement project 6 months ago. Didn't agree to pay few of the items to the contractor as he didn't do them and emailed him details. He came back today after 6 months with a new list + previous items and demanded payment. I had it written on the contract that he can't add any cost without written approval. Should I get a lawyer?
Is Marxism good for America?
Which brother is better? #TeamJonathan
This is a very silly question, but I thought I should ask. I bought lingerie from amazon that was made in China. Should I hand wash them first? Or is it safe to wear as is?
Will Mt. Rushmore exist 10 years from now?
Anyone here want a peloton promo code? You get $100 off the bike accessories, I get $100 off apparel when you sign up. Got my eye on a pair of shorts from the apparel store
Anyone have a pair of Felix Grays? Really thinking about getting a pair of the blue light glasses. Between work and looking at my phone I feel like it’s taking a toll on me. promo codes welcome 🙏🏼
We have been guessing for 3 months now. Either it’s safe or it isn’t. Making the kids sit 6ft part isn’t going to solve the problem in my opinion. 😢
Recommendations pls! Where can I order a mountain bike for women? Any brands in particular? Budget is $300 max. I'm also new to bike riding, so any tips would be appreciated.
After exclusively interacting with other management consultants on this app, looks like the Fishbowl gods have decided to mix us together in this Work-Life bowl.
Which industries is everybody from?
My best friend lives alone in NYC, as do I. We’ve been staying at home (occasionally go for short walks separately in our own neighborhoods). This Friday, my friend twisted her ankle and asked I come over with some groceries since it was past delivery time. I stayed for the weekend since she needed help cleaning and we haven’t seen each other. After thinking about it, I’m feeling anxious that I’ll get the virus (even though none of us has been in contact with others and don’t have symptoms)
So boomers not only managed to tank the economy with major recessions in the 90s, early 2000s, 2007-2009, and 2020, but they have destroyed the environment not only for GenX, Millenials, & Gen Z, but for our children and grand children.
It’s almost like their approach to pretty much everything was totally wrong.
So you are just sitting there working and on a conference call. Your eye itches... what do you do?
Anyone have success transferring from PwC audit to Strategy&? I no longer think audit is for me and would love to pursue strategy consulting.
I recently accepted a job offer at another company and am leaving my current on good terms in 3 weeks. There is an outing scheduled for tomorrow and I gave my boss notice already that I will be leaving. The job was virtual and I worked there for about a year, never really developed strong connections with anybody on the team so I wasn’t planning on going tomorrow. Do you think you would back out of the outing if it were you?
Where do those PPEs end up after use? Landfills? Rivers? The Ocean? I remember seeing images of fish and turtles with straws sticking through them before COVID. I can't imagine those plastic gloves and masks being helpful, especially in low income countries they don't have the ability to do mass cleanups.
Well if being alone on another Friday night didn't suck enough, we have a blackout that extends over 7 miles. 😞
