And love everything from Fishs Eddy store. I see they have tote bags etc with Brooklyn bridge etc - vintage inspired homewares. Everything I have been gifted from there has been well received


The Strand bookstore also has a great selection of unique tote bags and cosmetic sized bags


If you see them relatively quickly, I bring Levain or Milk Bar a lot. Or the NY homesick candles. Otherwise, as suggested above yankee hats and i love ny mugs always are easy

For those who were recruited from an MPH program...what was your starting base salary at your firm?

Told a friend of mine in tech I was considering moving to BCG. He asked me if I would have to move to Boston.

I followed up by asking what he thought the top consulting firms were. "I'd guess PwC and then McKinsey are the best. I've also heard of KPMG, Deloitte, and Bain, but I don't know much about them."

Just a reminder that outside our bubble no-one really cares about firm prestige etc.

Pls help! I’m updating my resume with the hopes of leaving the firm in the spring. How do I go about including the industries that I’ve worked in and that I’ve been on IPOs? Currently a staff 2 (started in the summer of 2019) and I’ve been on a total of 4 busy seasons and then the 2 IPOs. I also have about 5 years of work experience (incl accounting) prior to joining EY, so not overly concerned about leaving before promo if the timing works out that way
