"As your counselor, I will make sure you receive adequate coaching and are presented in the best possible way to seniors." Told this to me when I was a Staff1, taught me shit during the year, was overly critical and dented my self confidence at every given opportunity, sweet talked me during our monthly sync ups, and finally threw me under the bus during year end reviews.

So A7 you're saying 25% aren't local? All I did was ask my MD if I could work abroad and then they sent me. Twice. Sometimes if you want something you have to ask for it. And it helps to not be a dick - maybe work on that and you might get more of what you want.

Late 20s female looking for advice on getting in shape over the course of about 1 year. For context, I’m not in horrible shape or overweight, but overall am not that happy with my body and can stand to lose 5-10 pounds and tone up overall. My eating is relatively healthy but I tend to struggle on weekends with treating myself to cocktails and pizza. I enjoy working out but can’t find the discipline to make it a routine. (Continued)

ZS Associates
I have a couple of questions for ZS fishes-

1. Is it possible to turn down a promotion at ZS? I'm currently happy with my responsibilities as a Decision Analytics Consultant and don't want any added responsibilities in the near future (next 5 years)

2. Is it possible to shape up a career path in the BC stream which doesn't involve business development? I don't want to get into working on SOWs and RFPs.

Asking for advice please. I’m making 57k as a Finance Coordinator (2 yrs). My work is a hybrid role: 1) Exec assistant for a C-Level exec, 2) Financial Analyst. I cannot become Analyst now due to an on-going visa application that is going to take about 1-1.5 years. I am very grateful that my company is willing to help me with my visa (around 10k) this year. But I am thinking about asking for 70-75k since living cost in LA is pretty high and sometimes my bank account can be negative. What to do?
