I really want to work for MBB but don’t have an MBA. And no interest in pursuing one. 10+ years in the management consulting space at B4. Do I have a shot?
Anyone know what the base salary and total comp bands are for Managing Directors at FTI? Thanks
Survey: contract/staff attorneys in big law (DC/NYC), mind sharing your 1. salary, 2. billable req., 3. Budget for pro bono/BD (if any) — received offer and trying to gauge how much I can negotiate
Based on the newest news in the ask coo channel in NAMR - how does this translate to someone who is in the top of their salary band right now? Does it mean they will give us an off cycle salary review and adjust? Or?
So KPMG recently announced asking about current salary is no longer allowed during the recruiting process as of 10/31/17. Only thing they can ask about is expected salary. How about your firm?

I’d love to hear from people who went from implementations at a partner to consulting on their own. How has it been, anything you wish you had known prior, and any regrets? Bonus points if you do reporting. Thanks!
Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote). Currently an associate making cravath comp in a large city (not new DPW scale yet) but have been trying to move to a different market to be closer to family. New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?
Should I feel bad for leaving a job during a busy month? I work for a small agency and there is so much work in the pipeline and my company really relies on me but I’ve been there for 5 years and my salary sucks and I have no benefits.
Trying to transfer practices internally (Risk to FAAS). Also applied to another B4. When should I tell them I have another offer to leverage it to help make the move happen?
How do you guys negotiate salary? I threw out a number to the recruiter, but the person I’d be reporting to looked at it like it was low. Should I go back and change it? How can I do that gracefully?
When are background checks done to verify current employment at B4? Also do they contact HR or your manager, worried if they would give a bad review, they don’t know I’m leaving (I’m in industry)
Anyone experienced with startup comp? Was just offered 200,000 shares as part of my package but I have no idea how to translate this into worth. Assuming it’s worth $0 unless an equity event happens? Is there something else I should know?
The apple update is such a public screwup. Somewhere a junior developer just got fired for it
Currently in corporate finance for a major health insurance company and looking to get into healthcare consulting. MBA, former B4 experience, and experience in hospital contracts/pro forma projections, affordability programs, forecasting, and strategy. 10yrs finance/strategy experience. What firms are hiring in this space? Thanks!
Doing a closet clean out / reorg and realizing how much of my identity is tied to fashion and how my fancy clothes are now just collecting dust 🙄 I bought some new things during quarantine, but then what’s the point if I don’t go anywhere and won’t for a while? Trying to focus on long term styles. I wonder if fashion will be even more relaxed once we get back to office & clients? I used to enjoy dressing up, but now I just wear loungy WFH stuff. My legs will have to re-learn walking in heels 😭
Just going to leave this for any other data junkie. Enjoy analyzing. Please share any dashboards you come up with. Interested in seeing how else we can collectively comb through this data https://www.tableau.com/covid-19-coronavirus-data-resources
How many of you have rental properties? I am done maxing 401k, IRA and putting $ in index funds. But haven’t had the time to research investment properties or courage to pull the trigger. Missing out?
At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?
Anyone knows if the United checked bags are free for United Explorer MileagePlus credit card holders?
Anyone looked at FLIR? It’s had a decent bounce, but could be one that benefits greatly from reopening guidelines?
What’s the age cutoff to make partner at MBB?
Shoould I take advantage of CARES act and withdraw from 401k and put money into my IRA? Would spread income over 3 years to make sure I stay in lower tax bracket. Other than liability protections of 401k, are there any other downsides of doing this?
Anyone out there working in federal healthcare at Deloitte ? Thinking about a move...curious as to the vibes over there

Anyone else go back to playing an instrument / pick a new one up with wfh? Even with our schedules, I’m pleased to snatch 10-20 min here or there (for piano). Debating if it’s time to reinvest in a teacher.
Anyone live in the Ritz Plaza in midtown? Or know someone that lived there? Trying to gauge if it’s a good apartment building, given supposed ongoing construction and location.

Say you're at Big 4 and 3 boutiques each give you identical offers, how would you choose which one to go with?
Seeking advice: anyone have experience dealing with a meddling sister-in-law (brother’s wife)? She’s constantly overstepping the bounds of what I think is appropriate (I.e., bossing around my elderly mother, getting rid of things without asking my mothers permission, changing my mothers decor). It just doesn’t feel right for her to do these things to my mother/interject in family affairs like this. Understandably brother doesn’t want to get in the middle of it. How to handle this?
