Bschool to MBB, or stay at Big 4?
I got hired as a consultant (wohoo!!) again and am looking forward to the grueling traveling hours. When I was in my former city I used to use Delta to get around but here it seems like I should go for either United or AA. Which do you all prefer and use? I have had bad experiences with United but that may just be a few.
I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?

Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc).

Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
Ever had an interview where you vibed really well with 5 out of 6 of the interview panel, but one person you just could not get a good read on…. And then got offered the job?? I’m looking at moving districts. It’s my dream job, my dream school and everything about it was FABULOUS, but one person on the panel - I couldn’t get a read on whether she liked me or not? 🧐😣
I found this article and wondered what people here thought about it. It deals with teacher licensing tests. Among other things, it presents the case for a positive correlation between performance on a licensing test and performance in the classroom. It also argues there is an outsized number of teachers (over 50%) that don’t pass the licensing test on the first try. Any newer teachers out there who can weigh in on their teacher prep program and the licensing test experience? https://www.nctq.org/publications/Driven-by-Data:-Using-Licensure-Tests-to-Build-a-Strong,-Diverse-Teacher-Workforce/
