You know just venting here, just pissed off, GMAT did give me the option to reschedule but I would need to order a whiteboard and practice with that, any thoughts out there?

Same - I’m also taking mine tomorrow and I was so mad I called customer service. They basically told me too bad and I can only take the gmat once. It’s ok, we’ll do well tomorrow.

Ya I'm just gonna take it tomorrow and if I don't like my score then I'll think about raising hell to customer service

Oh yes, I’ll join you on that. Figure we might as well take it tomorrow. With all these recent changes, I wouldn’t be surprised if they let us take the online gmat more than once since they’re letting past online test takers do it.

So how did your exam go, mine was pretty fucking annoying - so during the verbal section I was in a reading comprehension long passage and I took my notes on the whiteboard but then randomly the whiteboard glitched and deleted everything and then after that it wouldn't let me type on the whiteboard - if I were to type on the whiteboard it would automatically erase it - it took me sometime but I saw that if I pressed the letter z or the letter y it would erase my whiteboard - so I tried to avoid that but it would still erase my whiteboard so I basically couldn't use it any longer - I lost about 5 minutes to that bullshit but I was ahead by about 5 minutes at that time so it evened out but I still want to raise hell but idk how I should go about doing that since I don't have any proof

How do you stay motivated when turned down for a raise because there isn’t enough money even though they say you’re doing amazing? I worked really hard but now I’m feeling like what’s the point...

Rental car question- if I rent a car for a project, do I need to get the additional liability insurance as well? I don't have a personal Auto insurance. And understand that CDW is covered by Amex. Thx

Some weeks are really hard and make you question everything. Everything is fab until a kid gets sick. The guilt of wanting to be home and wanting to be at work is rough.

Given the long hours, blah blah... Which companies are letting folks expense meals? If so, lunch or dinner or both. Just curious.

Industry offer with 14% salary bump, 40% bump total comp, small title jump. No negotiations and most likely slower growth and less exit opps. Is it worth taking?

Starting at Deloitte in September, and I may catch some slack for this question, but I feel like I learned almost nothing in school. I mean I know the basics of accounting, but don’t feel how I thought I would after obtaining a bachelor’s. So my question: how much technical accounting knowledge did you have before starting? Do you learn as you go in this career or am I already behind?

Just spent 10 minutes rebooting my desktop multiple time because I couldn’t see my files folder when I was opening it. Turns out I forgot to turn on the second monitor, where it was popping up 🤦🏽‍♀️
