People in the early part of career, do you love what you do and would work till 60, or would try for early retirement?

Never! Trying to change from currently where I am!

I do enjoy what I do, but would like to use the money I earn to invest to make passive income

Agreed, scalping and swing trading are hard to learn but so fruitful and great sources of passive income.

Early retirement for sure. I have to leave my job by 30 and I'm almost 29, so the clock is ticking for me!

How much is your corpus if you're retiring at 30? Do you have any passive income apart from stocks?

Early retirement!!

Always early retirement! It is possible with the right investments.

I think what everyone said is true, working towards passive income is probably the way. Or make your side hustle the real hustle, because I enjoy mine and would be happy to do that until I feel like I'm out of energy etc

Has anyone received/know of a HireVue request from Accenture (Federal) with the title "Introduce Yourself" under the Job Title portion? Nearly a month ago I applied to a role (with a referral) and around six months ago I had applied to another role, which is why I was curious on which role this would be in reference to. I'm also just wondering if this is a "serious" screening interview or something HR uses to keep on file (just so I can prepare accordingly). Thanks!


Has anyone successfully internally transferred from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada or Deloitte Australia? I am interviewing currently with the firm and would like to chat.


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?


What package can I expect from Deloitte. For position of SAP BW Integrated Planning Consultant with 5 years of experience. Current CTC 8lpa fixed and promotion is final in December from level 11 to level 10 in Accenture. Your feedback is highly appreciated 😊


My team at sweetgreen has 2 Senior Technical Program Managers roles to fill in LA + OC. Base + bonus negotiable but could be high $100s to low $200s. Equity is on top of that. DM me for a referral!


Just got back from the cook islands and looking for my next island vacation. What is your favorite island to visit? Best sand beaches? Good snorkeling or diving?

I just call a call to pick up my two tone sub, got on the list a year ago and I’m in a better position financially than I anticipated. Have been really wanting the gold Daytona with oysterflex. Does anyone know how hard it is to get it? Are there long lists? The sub was going to be temporary until I could save more but now I feel like it’s very unnecessary.


I'm 25M with about 2k monthly savings after discounting all expenses and 401k. Any advice on how to invest 1.5k every month considering I would need $500 for food and other expenses.


What the what?! 6 hour delay in DFW, missed all client meetings. Guess I'm a real consultant now?


Survived the layoffs on friday-but still shook up from seeing a bunch of my friends get walked out all around me. When a layoff happens should I be updating my resume/looking to get off the ship?


Another win for diversity!

Business ideas in these trouble times? Either for profit or for impact. Thinking about Covid19 of course (Healthcare, quarantine, wfh...) but the recession (unemployment) or future end of recession..


Should I be aiming m7 with 4 yoe (1 as an internal consultant for a small company and 3 at a b4), 760 gmat, 3.3 engineering UG from a top 10 engineering program (3.5 engineering gpa), not a ton of ECs and ORM? Planning on applying this year round 2 but not sure if I’m more in the m7 or t15 range.


Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?


Anyone done the Kellogg video essays yet? Is the COVID question still the same from the 2020 cycle? Would also appreciate any general advice you have for them
