Honestly, I’m done with covid. I’ve done all I can do, the rest is in God’s hands. Come at me telling me about how I don’t care about anyone but myself, x y and z. I quarantined, masked, vaxxed. What else can I do? I’m going to start living life like it’s 2019 again.


What’s your best nontraditional “Somebody I know made a fortune doing blank” story (I.e. reselling tickets, only fans, nail salons)


New senior flies in a day late, busts into the room with no apologies, and tells me (the only minority & female in the room) that I should get the coffee before the manager comes. I'm the manager. 😏


Best life lesson I learned from Deloitte: don’t ever, EVER sign a contract that demands you return the sign on bonus if you leave within a year. I thought to myself, “I would never leave a company within a year”, but I grossly underestimated how much I could hate a job.


What are some consulting firms that pay well and have very good WLB? Prestige is not an important factor in this question


I’m about to report my manager to HR for telling me I act / my hair looked a little too “black” this past week. Any advice or help? I don’t want this to affect PA / project selection in the future.


With the new decade around the corner, what are your proudest achievements of the year 🥳 and your new year resolutions for 2020?


My former manager, who laid me off, just called and asked for a referral to where I work. I asked why and he said he's "not feeling confident about [his] status". I said I'd "look into it". Nope!

I keep seeing Liberal Arts (English, History, etc.) students at Ivy League schools getting internships and FT offers from MBB and elite ibanks, but business majors studying Finance, Business, Econ at state schools (UMD, UC schools, and others) who can’t even get an interview....what’s the logic here?


What car do y’all drive?


Agree with policies or not - these two are way more presidential than our top of ticket candidates.


Wife and I make $24k after taxes per month. Would it be insane to buy a $1.5M house?


If you could press a button and get an instant $10m (tax exempt!), but someone would randomly drop dead in the world, would you do it?


Having a panic attack, feel like this Russia thing is going to trigger a world economic melt down. And I heading to Bschool in Aug. So scared to be burning through all my saving just to have no job when I leave


This year I finally reached a 6-figure salary, and I'm 25 years old. I've already spent 2 years at a FANG company. When talking to my mom about my career, she told me $100k isn't THAT much money(cont)
