Getting a tour of an agency tomorrow. I've done my due diligence and researched their clients, awards, culture, etc to ask question. Any other tips or questions to ask?

Can someone provide insight into firm culture at Troutman in Atlanta? Trying to decide whether I should head there or choose a smaller boutique firm. Both are similar in terms of billable requirements, and have comparative compensation.
Kinda disturbing how intensely some folks ordering the iPhone X are being attacked online. Why does it matter if others want a phone? It seems to be another manifestation of the culture wars.

Hey Fishies I accepted an offer from PwC SDC. Can anyone throw some light on what kind of a shift in work culture I'll expect? Currently working in EY India. YoE 6 and tech stack Microsoft based.
The problem with diversity is they focus on a quota rather than changing the culture of marginalized groups in the office. So often people speak over me, take credit for my ideas... and it's accepted.
As an ABCD myself, I feel like a lot of ABCDs tend to be generally pretty cold and unfriendly, especially to other desis. They tend to hang out in their own cliques that share their same disdain for desi culture and look down on their own kind. Yet at the same time they preach about progressivism to no end. Generally I’ve found recent migrants to be far more warm and welcoming. Anyone else feels that this is the case? Again, not generalizing here as I’m an ABCD myself.

I am a intern turned casual/part-time while at uni. I have been in the team for more than a year and I’ve built a really strong relationship with my director. However, recently people haven’t been (1)
Planning on going to business school in the next 2 years. Resume and GMAT solid, but feel as though promotion is just not in the stars. How does non-promotion ACTUALLY factor into MBA admissions?
Any males here get an MBA from an M7 university? If so, would you mind sharing your GMAT score? I know it's just one data point in an overall story, but I'm trying to get reference points from peers.
What are the career levels at Amazon consumer (not AWS)? Is it similar/comparable to google? What’s a reasonable level for someone with 12 years of experience (6 years in big 4 consulting)?
🐠🐠 Wondering how you'd perceive a person in a C-Suite or leadership position: - typically a smooth talker - acts like he was struck by lightning when things don't go his way, though it shouldn't have been a surprise - claims to have low EQ when he causes misunderstandings, yet doesn't take action to resolve it, or get help to raise his EQ - says he doesn't know anything about current events (or ones from a few years ago) or keeps up with news because he only has Netflix, no cable & such
Surely you mean ‘raise health with’. C’mon guys.
My job start date got pushed back until the winter, so I’m trying to find a restaurant or retail job to pass the time until then. Does anyone have experience with tailoring a consulting/professional resume for a service position? I have minimal service experience but a few years of desk jobs and internships and I’m not exactly sure how to leverage it
Just need to gripe. My partner of 10 years and I don’t plan on having kids. Why shouldn’t I get a paid sabbatical in lieu of parental leave? (Could apply to straight peeps too)
Not sure if my question will make sense but I am really curious. When it comes to salaries in the consulting world, do we end up reaching a peak in our base? And then must rely on bonuses for increases in total payout? I am curious because it seems like there are only about 5-8 official career ladder steps. I’m also curious to understand what salary trajectories are over time especially for people who have started in consulting and have basically never left this career path for 10-20 years.
Any recs for Ergonomic chairs that help lower back pain but are stylish and compact? TIA! budget: $600
Hi tax 🐠, I have a question for those who prep individual tax returns. My parents claim my grandfather as a dependent on their tax return and due to their low income, receive PTC for the premiums they pay on his insurance (not eligible for medicare). However, would it be advantageous to have him file for his own tax return (he stays with my parents and doesn't have his own proof of residency via bills). If so, can he get PTC if his income is 0?
Has anyone gone on maternity or paternity leave while going up for promotion in the same year that is willing to share story or any impact?
When I book award travel in United, can I book the lowest fare ticket and use status to change to the flight I want on same day without using extra miles?
What should you do when someone calls you out in front of client for not having done something yet, you message them privately that you don’t appreciate that, and then they gaslight you by saying that you’re too sensitive and it affects the working relationship?
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
