I don’t agree nor do I disagree w/abortion. I don’t have children and still don’t know if I want any, but what I do believe is women should have the choice to make a decision that works best for them and their situation. These constant constraints upon women, that seem to change with changing perspectives, be it women in the domestic realm, women in pants or dresses, AA women in our hairstyles)—should not be decisions left to the court.

Is working for startups the only way to have faster career progression than staying in consulting? Mature companies/industry is said to have much slower progression than consulting, and I see people’s LinkedIn showing promotions every year at startups. I want fast career progression but don’t want to stay in consulting. I’m pretty interested in jumping to the startup world and want to start my my own company (startup or small business, either works) down the road
MBB fish, might be a dumb question but did any of you take your final round zoom from a hotel room ? Moving around a bit so this might be the case for me , but feel like so much could go wrong (wifi, not having a comfortable set up, etc ) TIA! Hope y’all are enjoying the weekend :)
Does anyone know of companies hiring at the associate level for consulting? I made it to final round interviews at LEK but was rejected this morning.

Any advice for how to decline travel? Partner is pushing for us to go but there is a delta variant and I want to be able to spend time with my family without worrying I’ll infect them. The team culture is quite toxic (these people berate each other daily) so I feel uncomfortable speaking up, but I really don’t see a good reason for going there to do work I can do from home.
Verbal offer acceptance and formal offer taking over a week and counting.

Going on vacation week of 8/9. Should give notice this week (8/2) or on Monday 8/16 for a last day of 8/27? Basically should I put in my notice before or after my vacation?
At how much money invested would it be smart to hire a financial advisor or a managed portfolio? 401k is managed by fidelity and has around 32k and my individual account for stocks is at $14k and hope to grow that one fast. I’m concerned I may end up losing too much from bad decisions or miss out because from not buying correctly. I usually research a companies financials, outlook, and some analyst papers but other than that it’s more of a gut decision to buy or sell.
