Thoughts on ABS trading at a BB? What type of transferable skills do you gain if HF isn’t your desired exit?
Thinking about going for the 1-year mba since I know exactly what I want to exit to and would like to save money if possible. Are there drawbacks I’m missing that make a 2-year worth it?
Honest question- In this time where women are striving for equality and men need to play a key role in making this happen, why do we have women only conferences? How does alienating men help? #GHC19😑
Has anyone switched from a transactional practice to regulatory/litigation? Would love to hear about your experience. I’m a third year biglaw finance associate in NYC, but realized that my dream job would be working for the government doing some sort of financial or commercial regulatory/enforcement position. My mentor suggested going to a small boutique firm that does that type of work and eventually move to a government role. Is this a crazy idea? Welcome any thoughts!
For people who are familiar with work culture in Tokyo, how much embezzlement takes place? I see a good number of Japanese people on Instagram buying Bentleys and such. I'm confused how they can do so while living in a high COL with, on average, lower salaries than in the US. With the scandal at Nissan and how many executives were found to be stealing money from the company, I wonder if this is some unspoken secret about doing business in Tokyo? Unless their comp curve is extremely steep.

My cousin got into UC Berkeley undergrad for comp sci and I am incredibly proud of him. I wanted to gift him a MacBook. I wanted to understand if MacBook Pro 13 is good enough for comp sci folks or should I be looking at MacBook Pro 16?
Have an upcoming interview for a capabilities & insights analyst role at McKinsey - how does this role and track differ from the others at McK? Will I get to do some client interfacing?
I love when people quit for a better buyside role and you can see the jealousy in everyone's eyes - especially the older people who know they have to treat them as a client now.
I work in a small team in sales at a bank and my boss doesn’t let me engage with any of our clients. Whenever they reach out, he insists he’ll deal with it and makes me do the admin in the background.I’ve been in this role for over 2 years and still don’t have any meaningful relationships. I have a meeting with him to discuss my career goals next week. How do I tell him that this is not what I want from my career? I’m worried he’ll think I’m after his clients if I say I want more responsibility
How to job search for startup positions? TS data analytics manager looking to make a move to tech startup position, tired of structured B4 roles but almost all positions are for competitors or blue chip tech
Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊

Does anyone have both the CSR and Amex Plat or CSR and Amex Gold? Targeted with 125k and 75k bonuses, respectively, and debating which to add. Leaning toward Gold even though the bonus is less for 4x on grocery and dining.
$75k + $10k bonus for senior financial analyst role in NYC - should I take it? It seems a hell of a lot better than my $60k role in audit. Currently an A2.
Fishes two questions, what will be senior associate salary at Strategy&, glassdoor suggests 54k, is that correct or higher in cases? Also, what would be the average room rent (1shared room in a flat) near SE1 or within 30-45mins of travel time? Relocating from EU and not sure if it makes any financial sense.
Left Big 4 to work at a local firm & I don’t like it. Thinking about leaving before busy season to give them time to hire a new person but I’m worried about how I’ll look leaving so quickly. Thoughts?
I need advice on salary negotiation. During the interview process, I said I’m expecting a salary of 130k. They called me and said I’m the one and wanted me to agree on a number before putting it (cont
First time interviewing as an experienced hire. When a recruiter asks salary expectations, do I counter and ask for a range? I don’t want to go high & get dinged but also don’t want to get shorted.
