I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set. I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.
How long notice period to current employer should be in job switching (if employee is in beach) and what are the important points one should be cognizant about while leaving the firm?
I have a good life, good family, wife, kids, good job, and a good salary. But sometimes I feel that I want to take a Mulligan. In my mind, I replay my life from different points. 8 years old, 10, 13, 15 etc. All times when I see decisions I made affecting my life’s trajectory. I want to stop this but do not know how. Does anyone else do this? Any advice on how to stop?
Please help. I am debating between taking the gre and the gmat. On quant, I scored very high on in practice exams for the gre but the highest I got on on the gmat was 55th percentile. Verbal is the opposite, but the degree to which my quant score on the gmat is low is worse I think than the degree to which my verbal score on the gre is low (if that makes sense). Should I take/report gre? I’m wondering if well-written essays make up for a lower than average (by like 2-4 points) verbal gre score
The Big 4 walk into a bar. McKinsey, Bain, and BCG arrived a few minutes earlier and are ordering drinks. The other firms are already there too, in various stages of intoxication. What happens next? Who does what? Bonus points: which firm is the jaded, apathetic bartender?

News happens. 45 point run up in ES in one hour. We ticked into new highs. But, as long as we are within 10 points of the close, we will fill the gap, meaning some pressure on the open. Obviously, got blown out of my sells, but have reestablished up here at a 93 average. Short from 3093

What travel/rewards credit cards do you all recommend that will give you the most value for your buck (points, annual fees, intro offer, etc)? Originally, I planned on Southwest but read elsewhere to look at non-travel cards (e.g. Chase Sapphire Preferred and Amex Blue Cash Preferred).
I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.

Exhausted from the hours I am putting in in IB. Just pulled an all-nighter through Sunday night. Seriously contemplating moving to MBB. Question: How are the Associates and Consultants at MBB doing? What's your hours like? @McKinsey, @BCG, @Bain
Half my team got laid off and while I’m grateful to have my job still, I feel like I’m drowning in the additional work. All of their responsibilities have been assigned to me, the most junior person on the team. When I brought up that this was a bit much for one person/didn’t think this was sustainable (hinting at the fact that some of the other existing team members should pick some of the laid off peoples’ work), team lead went off on what I’m sure he thought was an inspiring speech about...
By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
