How long did others take to study for the GMAT? If I have 2 concentrated weeks of full-time study (taking vacation) would that be sufficient? Thank you!
This is for my real estate agents. I’m brand new into the business and I adore the work. What tips or pointers can you give to a new agent- I’m in Las Vegas if it helps to be specific. If anyone has any book recommendations that’d be awesome as well. I’m looking to learn anything and everything. For example, learning what I can and can’t do to make a deal close
My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.
Hi! I’m looking for non-fiction book recommendations. Memoirs, self-help, business... anything really 🤗 TIA!
I’m going to take a week off and I would love some book recommendations! Either a great novel (fiction or not) or an inspiring book that makes me feel hopeful about 2021 (it’s been a rough year..)
Any fun holiday gift ideas for my SO of 3 years(gay man)? Nothing too expensive, but all ideas welcome! :)
... Back from a week of vacation... Hit me McBee

Unlimited PTO: does your have it? How do you/others utilize it? How much time off is too much?
I’m going in for a doctor’s appointment tomorrow to find out if I have lymphoma. Am I supposed to like... work if I’m diagnosed? Our company has short term and long term disability leave options but idk. I’d love time off work but not at the expense of cancer (joking to try and get through today)
I am looking to product management from program management, any recommendations on books to read, courses etc
Any book recommendations? I prefer self improvement, finance, and biographies. Any recommendations welcome! Bonus if it’s on kindle unlimited and free!
When you’re planning for PTO, do you ask your managers if it’ll be okay to take time off those dates or do you just give them kind of a heads up?
Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.
Any must-read book recommendations for folks in our field, especially for the younger crowd (e.g. Analysts/Consultants)?
When this is over, imma need a 3 day holiday to catch up on happy hours, house parties, and hang overs
I was asked by a friend for a few management consultant books (similar to liar's poker in the finance industry) to check out. The only one I can think of is Peter Drucker's Adventures of a Bystander (good but not too much consulting)... any suggestions! 😁
Top book recommendations ? Looking to be more well rounded. I am a consultant in the procurement space btw in case anyone has any supply chain book recommendations as well. Self improvement books too!
We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism). I’m becoming concerned about him. He seems to spend a good amount of time alone outdoors. He often flags down passers by to chat. I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)
I'm thinking of leaving Big 4 to go to a boutique firm. I have 2 years of experience. They are bringing me in at the Senior level. Smaller market. Ill be doing consulting on tax credits. They asked me for a salary range- is 75k-85k reasonable? or is that too low?
I have an upcoming modeling test for an interview. Problem is, I have a Mac. Do people here suggest I use my Mac? I don’t feel like spending money on a pc
Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

I have heard that the interview invites for MBBs FT recruiting go out today. Anybody heard of a time range to shoot for? I'm probably going to be a nervous wreck the entire day anyhow. (Tags: McKinsey, Bain, BCG, M7, MBA Recruiting)
I got a $8,000 raise for year end and promotion, and no bonus. I just got written offer from other big 4 for 40k more then I am making at Deloitte.
This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?
Does anyone have any tips for switching from a Business Analyst role to a Product Management Role? Context: I've been in federal consulting for the past two years with a degree in Economics. Thanks!
Why do MBA hires make so much for only 2 additional years of courses? Even when looking at the classes, it doesn't seem like anything crazy you couldnt learn from some other avenue?
