Why do recruiters/team members not pass over feedback. Thought I absolutely crushed the interviews but got turned away. Just trying to improve...
Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?
Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
Amazon Product Managers: I’m preparing for the Loop next week. What kind of hypothetical questions should I expect (e.g., product design, estimation, market strategy)? I’m seeing a lot of mixed information online. I know the interviews will be mostly behavioral-based aligned to the LPs.
Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!

I have a New York LCA and want start working from Texas... I already started the amendment process and was told that the amendment should be filed before March end. So I booked my flight tickets for April start. However, it seems like the filing is taking longer. Do you guys know if I can still go and file the time under New York? Is there a risk? Would anyone check my flight records? P.S. My LCA is filed but H1B amended petition is not filed yet. Lawyers are waiting for certified LCA.

Anyone here a US citizen who chose to leave in favor of London? I’m American but husband is European. He wants to return for the social culture of Europe but I just get traumatized by the pay in London and almost equally high cost of living as in tier 1 USA cities. I know money isn’t everything but hoping to hear about other Americans experiences . Thank you!

Wharton Round 1 applicants, did you go through the Team Based Discussion on Zoom? I noticed the email just says “Interviews will be virtual with a second-year Wharton MBA Admissions Fellows”.
Having an off day already and wondering how so many people seem to be able to keep it all together so easily. I have friends and family that just handle everything with such grace and never seem to drop the ball or have to scramble to find time or energy to put into all of their priorities/obligations. Why is it so hard for me to even remember to schedule regular maintenance things for house/car/health, etc.? Maybe this career is just draining my cognitive capacity. I'm so tired.

Does anyone know of any firms that have a dedicated "IP Commercializations" practice? (i.e. digging through clients patents to see what is un/under utilized but could be monetized)
Best way to decline moving forward with the interview process for no other reason than you just don’t wanna? Just saying “I’m no longer interested” to the recruiter after having the recruiter call seems a bit harsh, no?
We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.

22, healthy, single, M. Should I really max my HSA? I completely understand the triple tax savings but my thought process is I don’t think I’ll have a large med expense for a while. I know, I know, I know anything could happen but the likelihood is pretty low rn and I don’t want to lock this money up for solely health costs when I rather be saving for a house down payment or continued education. I still plan to contribute to it, but should I really max it out at my age??
How do you explain your job role to your barber? No I have tried saying strategy consulting and that doesn’t help!
Anybody never think about retirement? In my head I’m gonna work until I die (from home, obviously). I’ve been on short term disability a few times and I was so bored out of my mind. Couldn’t imagine just not working at all. Also might be due to the fact I barely do any work now and think it would be sustainable forever
