What’s big law like in San Francisco? Anyone have any insights to firm cultures or billable targets?
Anyone have any insight into the singles scene in FLL? Especially compared to NYC (love here). Never been thrilled with MIA based on my visits, and hoping FLL may be a bit more down to earth. 30s/M
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀
Anyone at BCG in the San Francisco Bay Area willing to connect over a phone call and also potentially refer? TIA.
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?

Best LAX shuttle service? Used Uber for every trip, but would prefer something with terminal pickup. Might as well book both ways elsewhere. Cost not the biggest factor but reliability.
CLT departures board is lit up like a Christmas tree... except all the green bulbs seem to have gone out....
Are broker fees a thing in San Fran? Paying ridiculous fees to rent makes me hate this city

United at LGA can suck my fucking balls
Who wants to work in Risk Advisory in ATL, Bham, or Nashville at a firm where you can be your authentic self, and actually have a work/life balance? DHG is looking for good people. Growing 25-35%/yr
MBA 🐠 I took the GRE after undergrad. Happy with the score. Should I still take the GMAT before applying?
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
UK big 4 TS people. What is your firm, grade location and salary? Will be interesting for everyone to see how benefits differ between the big 4 in like for like positions.
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
I get there is no such thing as optimal 401k contribution as it varies by person but is 20% too much for someone just starting out? No ROTH offered
Any insist into DoorDash’s New Verticals team? Specifically DashMart? Have a screen for a manager position with them and am wondering about culture, pay, etc
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Hello guys and gals, at some point I will have to negotiate the salary for my next promotion - to senior accountant. As most of us are in different parts of the world, I'd like to ask what % increase you'd expect in relation to your previous salary? Also any tips for negotiating? Thanks a million. 😁
Strategy& fish, do you know what the director base / bonus is? Is it comparable to similar roles at MBB?
I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
Anyone here have experience boomeranging back to their original b4 firm within a year of leaving for a diff b4? Does this look bad on a resume?
Hi! Need help evaluating some offers and thinking about long term growth and trajectory. Have little more than 2 YOE in consulting. Also interviewing with PwC Strategy&, but no offer yet. Curious if the Deloitte name will carry me further than ZS? Want to ultimately get an MBA in the near future. TIA! 1. Deloitte, CBO TC ~95K 2. ZS, SIP TC ~130K 3. Startup (unicorn) TC (with stock options after 1Y) ~95K
DT folks - if your visa transfer/application does not go through, does the firm have a policy or path in place to keep you around? Going abroad or something?
Just took my uber driver to the wrong airport! Lga instead of jfk. Can i make it through security at jfk in 30 with pre check!!!
Kicking off travel - anyone done any recent research on best reward cards / program etc?
Question here - been at a new job for a bit and have discovered that the culture is extremely misogynistic. It’s been 6 months and I have had to go to HR twice. I want to leave, but don’t want to seem like a jumper - but then again, what does it say about a future employer if they judge me for leaving a bad work environment? Feeling conflicted. Thoughts ?
