Does anyone have suggestions on the best resources for learning project finance modeling?
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
10+ YOE, experienced hire, and up for promotion to SC this year. My current project is straight up analyst work (absolutely no disrespect). I spend my days doing nothing but updating excel sheets, producing reports for slides, and doing extremely boring work (go into 100+ folders/excels and report back on who's completed what). I not only feel like this is BS, but I feel like it's going to screw up my promotion. I've never asked any analyst I have worked with to do this stuff, yet here I am...

Will potentially move to client side in coming month. First H1B expiration due this year. When is the right time to talk about my GC application?
Our client literally blew up on Friday (fists in the air, raised voice, the whole thing) when we were demoing the website we built for their firm because it “didn’t match the approved designs” - after digging a bit, we found out she was talking about the tabs from the browser. Google chrome’s tabs, that show what website you’re visiting. 🤦♂️ Try to prove you have a worse client. I’ll wait.
What are some options for video conferencing with clients one-on-one now that zoom is out? See: https://techcrunch-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/techcrunch.com/2020/03/31/zoom-at-your-own-risk/amp/ I'm looking for secure free options and am considering jitsi, skype and Cisco webex.
What is a fun/dramatic tv show to watch for a zoom date? We already had one date several weeks ago. Preferably something interesting but also something we can talk over. Thanks for the suggestions!
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
How to deal with a spouse that has had it with my relapses. Overall doing great. Used to drink daily to excess for about ten years. Now I have a lapse about once every two years and my spouse hates me and refuses to speak with me. I honestly feel I have come along in leaps and bounds and some slack would be great, I am not perfect but a million miles better than I was. Are they being unfair or am I still a selfish drug addict that needs to give more empathy?
first client project - I’m the only associate on a team of Managers and seniors and I feel like I keep screwing up even the most minor things. I feel like they all hate me now and not sure how to fix
I am starting a new role with a new company and will have 6 direct reports. Although I have managed teams before in a consulting project setting, this will be the first time in industry. Any recommendations on how to sharpen my management skills (books, blogs, etc). Particularly looking at how to delegate effectively and practical examples on how to run day to day.
Can anyone recommend any trainings or certifications to up my game? I am a project manager and feeling lost after joining back from maternity leave. It’s been 8 months now
Point to ponder - Using the same resources (Skype,zoom, meetings, calls etc.) that were always available to us, why didn’t we work from home all along and wasted so much time commuting/flying?🤔
To all current and former 1st yr associate sell side traders, what do/did you make total comp first year?
Currently interviewing with BRG in their Turnaround and Restructuring division and was wondering if anyone knew whether their compensation structure is similar to A&M's, as in the bonus being tied as a % to your billable / utilization rate? And if so, are there restrictions of any kind, like it starts applying after you hit a title, etc?

Interviewing tomorrow at another Big4 firm for a 100% travel position that has "McLean" as the location. Would they ever be okay with me not living in that area? If so, when to bring that question up?
Any folks here ever take “garden leave” or cooling off leave where your company pays your a salary during the non compete period? If so, can you literally just quit the job and they still have to pay you? Offer I have says if either the company terminates me for cause or I voluntary leave, I am subject to the non compete and will get garden leave.
For those who have left one firm and moved to another, was yours a lateral or promotion at the new firm?

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
Need advice from more experienced fishes. How much should I increase my FSA contribution if I plan to (try to) get pregnant next year?
