No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?
Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.

My Senior keeps giving me (A1 newhire) vague and conflicting information for what they want me to work on. I just got moved to this client a week and a half ago to help out with filing, and am expected to go off a simple look at X section and figure it out. Just stresses me out a ton and feel like I cant assist with anything legit. Ill ask for clarifications but it just seems like im going in circles. Were supposed to be filing next Friday and its not looking up.
Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?
I love everything about working in PE except the hours and WLB. Any ideas for careers that would be a good fit for me?
I can see so many ex MBB consultants in Meesho currently. Any idea why this is and if Meesho is a good exit from consulting? I have an interview scheduled but not really sure if I should go for it or not.
I had interviews with Grant Thornton. The last manager I interviewed with said he didn’t know what the next steps were after he turns in his assessment. How long should I wait to ask the recruiter what the next steps are? Or is anyone familiar with the interview process ?

Difference between female vs male leadership is based on gender bias. I'm labeled "aggressive, stubborn, and difficult to work with" by male peers, while they're praised as decisive and direct. WTF 😡
Thoughts on iPhone 13 vs the Pro? These carbon copy phones every year starting to get old...
Meeting new client on Monday but going to putting my two weeks notice later next week. Any recommendations on how to best handle clients, new teammates? What sucks the most that I’ll be introduced to everyone get up to speed, and then they’ll find out I’m leaving the company.
As a staff on the consulting side, does anyone else find it awkward to join a zoom call with the client before the manager/sm joins in?
Interested in consulting at MBB. Is connecting with recruiters via LinkedIn and reaching out about potential positions something I should do?
Just finished a case presentation with 7 interviewers. Should I send a thank you email to all (I’ve already sent thank you emails to two of them from interviews earlier in the process)? They were all extremely nice so I just want to make sure I do the right thing.
