Suddenly, the earth starts spinning faster I cling to my desk, but my fingers are slipping and I begin to worry that I won't be able to finish these slides by EOD

Has anyone managed to book/had an L1 visa interview in London recently?


I’ve been offered a job with about 40% of the comp being a “target bonus” (ad/tech company). What is a target bonus and are the targets even attainable?


Last round of interview coming up for an analyst/associate role in IB M&A. I have 2 years of experience in Big4 M&A. The previous interview round was very technical, and the last round will be a ”business case”, which lasts about 3.5 hours, including a short introduction, 2-hour preparation, and a presentation. They will provide me the PC. What would you expect an IBD case study to be like? I’m not sure if I have to build everything from scratch or if I can use some ready-made layouts.


Trying to figure out how to manage health issues and work balance. I just recently found out I might have herpes (waiting for the test results to come back) and I have been very and feeling like my life is over especially because it came from being cheated on and struggling with prioritizing my bandwidth and not knowing how to communicate it with my team. Due to stigmas around something as common as herpes I cannot comfortably share that with my team.


Anyone fly united airlines recently?

🐠 looking to do the “2-3 years and out” path to industry - what sort of compensation increase are you looking for to get you to leave? Current comp -> new comp by firm would be interesting


Can someone explain how the Fly to the Finish challenge works for United 1K? The main thing I am confused about is whether the qualification is based on total PQP or only on PQP earned within the promotional period (Aug 8th - Nov 30). If total, I am already past based on the PQP they granted at the beginning of the year


Not pregnant yet but curious how pregnancy impacts performance, if at all. If all goes to plan I’ll have my first trimester over busy season. Curious how that goes and if any slack is given if pregnancy symptoms are bad


Is CLEAR worth it? I’m based in SFO


Hey everyone! IPG Health is thriving with new business wins, and we are hiring in every department! I am a boomerang to the network because honestly the agencies within IPG Health provides great benefits and colleagues. DM if interested!!


Anyone know of a natural hair stylist in the CLT area?

Who has the best parental leave policies? Need advice


Do yall keep the timer running when on standby? (I.e. not exactly drafting but waiting for emails or dig pages to come in on closing day)


What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done during a zoom meeting?


To the folks who pivoted from tech consulting pre-MBA to IB post-graduation, how has your experience been? What would have been helpful for you to know prior to making the switch?


Got the offer letter yesterday. Recruitment team agreed in 15 pct bonus on fixed pay. But offer letter does not have any mention of that. Does it come on separate letter?


Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.


Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!


Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?


Brought the matrix to Boston on a visit to the Parthenon office. Not a bad view.
