Will be promoted to manager effective 10/1. If round 1 apps are due in September for certain schools should I wait until round two when my title has taken effect? Or apply round 1 noting the promotion is official just not yet effective?
Do you think agencies are hiring a larger percentage of freelancers to bypass their promises of improved parental leave, which are only available to full-time staff?
After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
Any restrictions taking parental leave in the first year of employment at BCG/Bain? Couldn't find anything published online about it and not ready to disclose (too early in pregnancy)
That moment when you hear someone from Accenture Strategy say “yeah I’m in the top group within Strat. It’s the same thing as MBB” 🙄

4 month old refuses bottles completely at daycare. I'd rather not reverse cycle, since sleep is already so precious. Has anyone had success arranging full time WFH while figuring feeding out?
I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?
A big surprise challenge in wfh has been my spouse seeing me around the house and expecting me to help out with daily chores and helping with kids then getting frustrated when I’m not able to get up and help. Our whole marriage, when I’ve been home that means I’m not working and can help her out with things, but now that rhythm has changed and it’s hard. Anyone else going through this? Hoping we’re not the only ones 🤞🤞😬
Me and my husband have about 70k saved. Our monthly expense is around 2k . No debts. Monthly income is around 13k. Is buying a house worth 1 million too risky ?
Moving client side at a series A funded global tech startup as the Sr Director of Corporate & Brand Marketing role (lead the creative team and everything owned and earned). Report to the CMO.

Hi Big4 Fishes, My KPMG HR had verbally told me that I would be eligible for the relocation benefits once office resumes...and a annual bonus ranging from 10-30% of CTC But there's no mention of that in the OL... Shall I ask her to generate a new OL or not required? Thank you🙏🏾
Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in? I had an interview with EY two weeks ago (before I was officially a senior), but never heard back, probably because they were looking for a senior lol. 😭 Thank you everyone!!!
Vent post: any women in their mid/late twenties feeling so tired and aimless? Or have you felt that way before and made it out alive? I’m about to get promoted, in the middle of applying to grad school, and feel more lost than ever. I don’t know what I want to do in life at all, and have no time to even properly think about it.
