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. 😏

This is hard to believe this day and age. I insist on getting my own coffee as it is the only way sometimes to stretch your legs and maybe get some sunshine.
In any case, I hope the senior ran into somebody more senior who gave him an appropriate errand to run

Loved the way you dealt with this.

Seeing some of the other comments, I'm old enough to ask what's wrong with someone on the team helping out with coffee - as long as it isn't derogatory or patronizing. We all take turns to get coffee, lunches or help each other out. It's not grade based, it's need based.

Longing for the return of common courtesy sometimes. I was bought up to believe that good manners cost nothing and buy you a lot. Surprisingly (or not) I find that this gets me a long way when I need good customer service.

Let's vote for treating other people as you would like to be treated yourself.

Haha D1 got it. Just smiled and said thanks for volunteering to get coffee for the rest of the project. And that we'll discuss his comment after my client meetings. Team says he's been silent and pale-faced for the last 2 hours.

My friend took a break for 4years after 5 YOE in India tax with a small firm and is now looking forward to join one of the Big4 (any tax stream). I referred quite a few times, even in the introductory positions but I think the gap is becoming an issue.
Can anyone suggest any solution and/or provide a strong referral?

I want to go VC / Start up I think but still interested in giving strategy consulting a shot.

Got to final round for mbb for post mba role - have another shot in ~3 months.

Do I stay where I am, try for mbb again? Take the title demotion but increase pay and call it a day, or just say screw it and go to early stage? Struggling here - don’t love
