I used to be passionate about my firm’s people. Loved coaching junior folks and paying it forward with all the great mentoring I received early in my career. But my firm’s values and senior leadership priorities have incentivized a purely numbers vs people culture. It’s made the job so much less fun and personally fulfilling. Anyone also struggling with this and any advice?


There seems to be so many posts about teachers struggling with their mental health right now (myself included) on here. Has anyone found any online support groups for teachers or a similar resource?


For folks that got their MBA ( full time) what was your age and did you feel like that impacted your experience? Looking to go 1.5 ~2 YO and but feeling weird about when I plan to enter (currently 26 F)


Worked hard, won business and asked for a raise - got 10%. Now closer to median salary for my YOE. But it’s not in effect until my first year anniversary which is 2-3 months away. Should I accept the raise or negotiate?


Just signed my offer to join EY in their GPS practice. How is the culture, WLB, sanity?


Looking for a good standing desk less than $500. Recommendations?


Can anyone refer me to MBB? 1 YOE at Accenture. Plz help


Have an interview with a startup tomorrow. What types of questions would you ask in my shoes? They are part of a venture innovation arm of a larger company, so less risk of falling flat, and relatively far along in product development TIA


Just got laid off today 😥 super sad


If you care about the economy, remember how poorly Republicans bungled the COVID response the next time you're at the ballot box.

Almost got hit by a car crossing a street because I was too busy chortling at a FB post 😐😐😐 instead of paying attention. Lesson learned.


Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?


I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???


I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)


Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self... I love the fact our carbon footprint is much lower now, but again, believe this will be short lived. What do you think?


Hello everyone, I gave first round of interview on Saturday after clearing hackerrank test for JPMC. I got this mail yesterday, does this mean I'm selected for consecutive rounds or can it be anything (including negative). Please let me know if anyone had been in similar situation. Thanks

Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.

I’m trying to figure out what my in hand paycheck would be after all the ore tax deductions (benefits, 401K, etc) when I work in NYC and live in NJ. Is there a calculator that can help with this?

If my firm mandates the vaccine and I don’t provide proof, do they have to pay me severance when they fire me? FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m vaccinated, I just don’t want to work here anymore and I would like some extra $$$ 😂😂😂😂
