Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Do you always clean shave for an interview? Have one with EY later today for SC2 and I think the stubble (clean neck) helps me hide my baby face a bit so I’m leaning towards not clean shaving.
I currently work as a personal injury lawyer at a small law firm, 5 years experience, graduated from T30 law school in 2015. Our subject area is pretty niche, and I am looking to branch out. Not big law, but a different subject area, and hopefully something with a better work life balance (have a small child with hopes for more). Open to leaving the law for a compliance/HR/other type position. Am I even marketable for something like that? Am I being unrealistic?
*No judgement zone* Just finished reading Expecting Better (LOVED it!) but I’m so curious - how many moms out there actually drank wine or beer while pregnant?? I would LOVE a small glass or two once in a while but I’m nervous.
Marriott didn’t let my deliveroo driver into the hotel as “it’s against policy to have outside food delivered”....anyone else had same problem?
Have you noticed (either in school or in person) that social-distancing and cleaning standards are becoming more lax?
A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!
OK guys, need to head to ATL this weekend. Was hoping to stay at the St Regis and it's TOTALLY BOOKED OUT! what's a close second for area and hotel? Thanks in advance!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! Hoping you all get a much-needed break today and do something for yourself ❤️
Anyone already work out an optimal combo for a couple that each consults on earning? We aren’t super advanced so basic choice is either both go Marriott, or split and one go Hyatt and Hilton
Just got an offer for Accenture and I'm asked to choose between San Jose and San Francisco. How will being in each office impact my long term career trajectory? Does it even matter?
Going from E gates to the rental car center in ATL. Guess I’m getting my exercise in today after all 🚶♂️🏃♂️🚶♂️🏃♂️
I'm on a brand new American Airlines A321. Like brand new airplane smell. NO SEAT POWER. NO ENTERTAINMENT units. #AAssholes #ihateAA #neverAA #AAsucks
The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
Frequent flyers out of EWR. What’s the TSA-pre line like at Term C on a Monday morning at 06.30? Newbie here... thanks!!
I need to travel to India urgently for personal reasons. I have a US citizenship and valid OCI and wondering if any issues due to COVID. Thinking of taking the flight from Newark to Mumbai to avoid exposure - does anyone know what it means once I land there (final destination Bombay). And can I come back in 2 weeks or will I have to stay longer due to quarantine?
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
🐟 folks - anybody know good immigration lawyers in New York or Virginia. Need it for a H-1b friend who is not in the big 4.
Soon going to stop bothering w/ Uber. In DC, at 5:45, closest 🚗 was 15 min away. At LGA Term A, 🚗 15 min away kept grabbing my request when others were 4 min away. Who else offers black cars?
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
For those of you who have left consulting, what was the “cherry on the cake” moment that made you decide it was time to leave? I think I am near that point.
Just started as Senior 1 at Big 4…is it normal to not receive any actual training aside from HR-related? Only Senior on my team with a team who is all new to the client. Honestly feeling as though I’m being set up for failure and regretting my choice to switch firms. Any advice?
Sent an email to my network looking for a few points of research to round out a simple deck and am now being hounded by a team trying to sell their services to my client who doesn't need it. #sharks
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Accenture hiring Share your resume at email@example.com Experience band 2 to 12 years. Location Pan India (wfh)
Most important things to do in London? Traveling there for a quick vacation (5-6 days) and don’t want to overwhelm myself or try to do too much. Would be good to have the must see or must do from you brainy consultants. 🧐
How many people here want access to mental health resources but don't? If so, what's stopping you from access mental health resources? Professional help availability, money, time, stigma? Have an interesting business idea but looking to validate it, thanks!
Curious on culture at Deloitte Global vs Deloitte US. Anyone have any experience on that side? If so, what are your thoughts on WLB and flexibility?
Why does McKinsey hire at Associate level post MBA. Bain and BCG associates don’t have MBA.
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
What practice areas (if any) would be a natural move for a mid-level commercial real estate/finance associate? I started trying to leave my firm in February and, at the time, was super in-demand. Now, with Covid, commercial real estate is slow & I think I'll be stuck where I am for at least another year if I don't make a practice area shift. Are there any other practice areas where my experience would be valuable?
Switching from audit to advisory. Have offer internally. How much of a premium would you negotiate for to move externally to another big 4 advisory over and above the internal advisory offer?
TL, DR: comp for Sr Manager in public accounting, for hybrid internal audit + performance improvement role? LA based. More info: Just got promoted to Senior Manager in a mid-sized accounting and advisory firm. LA-based. What comp should I expect? I have my salary discussion this week and looking to benchmark. I do IA, public company readiness assessments, risk assessments, business process reviews, compliance, etc.
Getting a nanny .... my husband and I are looking to hire a nanny for our 7 month old, our 3 y/o goes to pre-school. We've had nannies previously for our 3 y/o but they were both referred by friends. The one we are looking to hire now is our first from Care.com. Does anyone have any advice as to what we should be on the lookout for? My husband and I both work from home, but I can't help my anxiety about not knowing her, the background check was light in information, and I want to make sure he's safe
Would anyone at McKinsey be willing to help me prepare for the PEI portion of interviewing? Have my super day coming up and just want to fine tune my understanding of the format. Thank you!
