Hi ladies! Looking to get creative & brainstorm a bit. 31 y/o female in NYC - most of my friends moved out of the city due to the pandemic.

I always have to make sure they remember it's platonic. ￼ Any ideas on how to make female friends during this time? I'm like...is there an app for that? ￼I am getting Zoom video catch up fatigue.

I received an offer from a top company and signed the offer letter 3 weeks ago. They have been distant since then, and their top competitor has made me a better offer in terms of position/title and salary. I also feel this company is a better fit. What do I do?

Hi 🐠! If I had received a 221g in the past, do I need to say “Yes” to have you been refused a visa in the past while filling out the DS-160 form? The visa was approved after they had asked for a few additional documents.
Feeling a little bit low-balled by a Bay Area public company offering me a role at 145K w/ 9years of experience. Will it sound ridiculous if I counter with $175K? It will still be a COL adjustment down, but more acceptable, especially with my partner relocating with me and him working remotely.

Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
Any additional responsibilities with promotion from Specialist to Project Delivery Manager? (E.g., coaching, sales, firm, etc.)
I am a fresher. Joined 8 months ago(full time employment since 4 months) My current position is software QA and I want to move into development or data analytics (preferably DA). What can I do to achieve this in my own company? Or do I have to switch jobs for a different role?
It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
Is the work culture at reliance bad?

What is the best group to get into at PwC? I'm looking for a DevOps role I have 5 years at Deloitte.

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
