Just got my eyebrows threaded here on the west coast and when I left the shop there were five women in it— a Nepali women, an Indian woman, a Korean , a white lady and a black lady. I loved the diversity so much haha. All were customers waiting in line except the proprietor :)
Account supervisors, what are you making? Trying to assess what is standard and earning potential in this role
Applying for Public Trust security clearance currently. I have Public Trust at a different agency but don’t remember exact dates for some questions that I answered on first application. If my answers for new clearance don’t match my first answers, will my clearance be denied or am I at risk of being denied?
How well do your coworkers know you? My gf low-key hates that I never talk about her at work and keep my personal life guarded. In contrast, my gf (who doesn't work in law) spends time socially with her coworkers outside of work and they talk to each other about their personal lives. I think socializing makes it harder to do my job - less time spent billing, harder to keep good boundaries, etc.
My shoe game has taken a hit lately with some of my staple pairs finally giving out on me. What are your go to styles and brands for work footwear?

Anyone study for CFA while working full time in deals, FDD specifically? Thinking about starting it now as a senior (starting next month in Advisory after transferring out of audit). Probably would wait until I have gotten adjusted to the new role before beginning but wanted thoughts on if it’s doable and a worthwhile investment.

How old are you (+ your spouse if applicable) and how old are your kids?
Anything you’d do differently?
Amex platinum corporate card — is this worth the $550 a year upgrade for an MBB consultant (entry level post MBA) given the COVID situation? I’m thinking of keeping the green card since there’s no traveling due to COVID and don’t think I will be expensing much due to WFH. Wanted to get your guys’ thoughts though, is it worth it even when traveling starts up? Anything I’m not taking into consideration?
Finally, now that WFH is more accepted (thanks 2020), do you think more industries will “reimagine” this arbitrary 40+ hr. work week?
Some orgs tried/have proven to be more productive with less (e.g. 6hr work days, 4 day work weeks) but I don’t know if consulting leaders are enthusiastic about normalizing this since “it’s the land of billable hours”...
What would it take?
Hello fellow 🐟. It's been 1.2 years since I joined Risk Consulting as an IT Advisory Analyst fresh out of college. I thought it would be consulting, but turns out it's just IT audits. Anyways, I was a programmer in college and made sure that I leveraged those skills and I am one of the key contributors to the firms Intelligent Automation practice using tech like RPA, AI/ML. I don't know if I can transition to something interesting (tech prod mgmt or MC), I am currently preparing for GMAT.

Parents of “older kids” do you give an allowance? I have a 10, 12, and 15 y/o and apparently I’m the “meanest dad ever.” Mind you my wife and I give them everything they want/need (within reason)
Can anyone give me the low down on Deloitte’s rebranding? S&O becomes S&A but does operations sit under a different vertical? Or are they just trying to say they have an entire analytics practice too?
I called my client on teams after confirming on chat that she is ok to talk. I heard very low giggles as though she was trying to control, i felt like she was making out or her husband was playing with her. Felt very unprofessional, what would you have done? What is the right thing to do? Both funny and serious replies are welcome.
Assuming most consultants live in T1 cities, do you ever feel elitist thinking about the flyover states?
