We've been talking about Sedona for a while!

What are they into?

like

He is pretty easy to please travel wise. He's equally happy doing beaches or exploring a city city. He doesn't ski or snowboard though. We've been doing a lot of national parks this past year and exhausted all trips that we can drive to this year.

It isn’t US but Cabo is close to west coast. I went in January 2019 and it was beyond fabulous. What are your interests? Hiking? Beaches? Spas? Fine dining?

like

I would highly recommend Cabo if you guys are comfortable with that! Great food, spas, warm weather, hikes even. I live in LA too and it is very easy to get to. Otherwise, Sedona or Dallas could be good options as others noted. You could also do like a cruise to Alaska (northern lights!) mixed with Vancouver for a little city.

So i primarily come from a tech background (did CS in undergrad and currently 2.5 YOE in digital transformations at B4). Gonna be starting b-school soon and found out that most associates go through case interviews that cover all topics, meaning i have to start learning other areas. I’ve never done case interviews before and have no clue where to get started 🙃...any tips for someone in my position? Helpful tips/resources? Thanks fam!

I've been working at least 50 hours (billable) since last summer due to staff cuts with my only breaks being thanksgiving and Christmas and some PTO sprinkled here and there.

Looking at an offer from a Series E startup and trying to figure out if this is worth it. I’m at 2 years post-MBA at a Big 4 (current TC right around 200k). New TC would be right around 200k, but would be like a 25% reduction in base - I like the role and the team but I dunno if that kind of base reduction is common for consulting exits? I see a lot of TC improvements, but wondering if those folks see a base jump too? Thanks!
