Timing sucked for Katie Sowers spot, what with her defense giving away 7 points right before the break.
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
What's the diversity at GSD&M like? I'm from Texas, went to school in Austin so I know Austin has its own diversity issues-- but missing my home state. I'm in nyc and have only worked here post grad.
How many agencies out there still have unpaid internships? To not pay a living wage for interns today seems hugely out of step with diversity goals.
Any EY fish here work in the Information Strategy and Management group? Care to share what your projects are like, team culture, exposure / opportunities to wide ranges do tech, etc?
Any stories about how the independence policies at Big 4 have practically affected your personal finances? Would also love to hear how consulting business is affected by not overlapping audit clients
I hope the market crashes in the next 4 years so I could finally buy some hard assets. So sick of renting. (And I would feel the same if HRC was president)

In South Philly, good spots to go out in the city? extra points for dives with groovy tunes
Hi EY and Fishes everywhere! I might be getting an offer to join tax as an S1 (or exp. assoc), probably not being able to start until mid August based off how the process has been. However, I currently work at a mid size firm and we’re already getting into busy season. How would it look if I asked EY to postpone my start date till after 10/15 and say that I’m not ready to be thrown into a Big 4 busy season and that I don’t want to leave my current firm out to dry. Thank you all so much! @EY
Any one from Big 4 working in supply chain practice? Need some inputs on the career path
Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Thoughts on Razorfish Health NYC? Or switching to health in general? I'm moving to NYC and looking to switch jobs (currently working remote for a Chicago agency). RFH just reached out about an opportunity. My one hang up is switching over to health. I've worked for 5 years on a brand I legally can't put in my book; I feel like health may be equally stunting to my portfolio. I went from portfolio school to my current job.
Got an Amazon offer (they reached out to me, interview process lasted several months) but discovered I was pregnant after getting the offer. For medical reasons and complicated history of miscarriages, I can't commit to a start date prior to delivery. In order to be transparent, I have shared the news with the recruiter. Should I expect them to withdraw the offer/any advice on what to do?
