My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.
Has anyone taken lessons at GolfTEC or a golf store (golf galaxy, pga superstore)? I typically play in the mid 80s but can’t get into the 70s. Looking for lessons to improve and get a little more consistent.
Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
To the partners/directors/senior managers: can you give examples of mistakes/lessons you learned throughout your careers? Any really big F-Ups that really made you think about staying/leaving?

Moss Adams people. What can you tell me about Matrix. Interviewed with an office for a senior position and one of the managers talked about Matrix. How you guys use that to upload the information into the tax software?
Nervous for my campus visit. Not even applying or interviewing yet and im already nervous!
I have SPG lifetime Gold and apparently Marriott has bumped me up to Platinum Elite status. Here’s to hoping they don’t fix the glitch. Anyone else get accidentally upgraded?
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped.

Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)
Which one should I pick - big four or prestigious investment company? Hi guys I’m currently making a change in my career and I have gotten an offer from big four and accepted it. It’s specialized in one sector. I had communicated the offer deadline with all the companies I interviewed for . Two weeks after I had accepted such said offer, one of the companies I interviewed for called me and said they would like to extend an offer to me as well.
Apart from my normal job as a consultant, I own & manage two townhouse rental properties in the DC metro area under an LLC that have performed quite well since I acquired them. I am curious to know if highlighting this experience on my resume would help or hurt me in landing an interview with McKinsey or Bain. I come from an engineering/technical background and want to strengthen my business/entrepreneurship/investment experience on my resume. For context, I have about 2 YOE in consulting.
Accenture 🐠 - any insight into the base / total compensation I should expect as an experienced hire (3 YOE) Strategy Consultant? Just want to have an idea of what I should go for! Thanks
Anybody who successfully requested expedited EAD/AP processing? I will likely incur in a significant financial loss next year due to 6-9 months of unpaid leave while waiting for EAD. And obviously stuck in the country with no ability to travel internationally.
I applied for a position at EY last week. Today, the status changed to “we would like to proceed you to the next step in our recruiting process”. Does it necessarily mean that I will be moving into the interview phase? Applying at EY after two years so trying to understand. EY

What are partners going to do with the massive amount of senior turnover? Considering changing anything? Upping pay, benefits, hours? Less understaffing? Anything?
Are all roles at MBB highly travel oriented?
I once read a book called the Psychology of Everyday Things and fell in love with the concept of engineering design from a person-centered perspective. Is this a part of what I/O psychologists do?
Here’s a controversial topic: Opinions on working over 40 hours a week when you’re a salary employee? IMO, if I’m not getting paid hourly/overtime don’t expect me to live my life behind my desktop.
Will getting 2 years of experience as a strategy & ops manager in financial services pigeon hole me in that industry. Not in love with the space but think it could compliment 2 years at MBB quite well. Not too eager to stay in consulting and get promoted
