Industry >>>> consulting !


You are at EYP 😛


How’d you know 😮

If you want to become partner, stay in consulting. If you don't care to be a partner, then this is a great exit.


Particularly great at FB since they’ve done some great M&A work over the years. Amazon, while in many ways a more impressive and impactful firm, doesn’t have any absolute mega wins like Instagram or WhatsApp

Also to op- go to tech and never look back! You will love it and your wallet will thank you as well. I’m returning to tech shortly and can’t wait !

Could I use a job offer that I don’t want as leverage to get a raise? Or is it not really leverage because I don’t have the intention to actually leave. This is more of a hypothetical question.


I’m wondering whether and how other firms credit time spent by associates on business development for purposes of meeting the annual billable hours target. Is such time fully credited?


Comp noob here. Do all startups (Series C) offer RSU/ ESOPs? 8yoe. Will be joining as a team leader part of the growth team. If they don’t, should I ask/ insist? Anyone able to share experience?


Anybody pick up an online adjunct teaching position on the side? I’m thinking about it but wanted to see if anybody had any experience with it. Thanks


Me: Creates elaborate spreadsheet, asks client to “Please only populate column B” with updated information Client: populates column C, deletes formulas in columns A, D, and G. Client: “I don’t understand why this isn’t working the way you said it would” Me:

What's McKinsey's expense policy like? Asking for a friend...


How long after the interview day with capital one did one receive an offer?

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2


Does Deloitte provide work from home allowance to new joiners? If yes, how much? Any other joining benefits?


Looking to leave my auditing position with only 3 months of experience... I'm in a relatively small firm, and my manager's micromanaging is insane... Want to go into advisory, any advice is welcome.

I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?


I've had several awesome interviews with Deloitte (2 partners, 2 directors). My practitioner interview has been rescheduled 3 times, and today they were supposed to call me. WTF, Deloitte??


Anyone here who interviewed with/ work for DoorDash S&O team? Would love to hear your experience and any advice. Thanks!


Anyone here invest in index funds? I’m thinking about VTSAX but FXROX has no expense fees so it looks enticing. But I hear most people rave about VTSAX


Can someone explain how they prioritize IRA after hitting the income limit so it is no longer tax deductible? I believe it becomes lower priority than HSA and 401k. Thanks!


With the holidays coming up, partners and client relationship owners, do you get your clients gifts? Pre-COVID we sent treats to the office, but most of my clients are still home. Would it be appropriate to send gifts directly to them? If so, any ideas on things/price limits?


I interviewed for an internship at an agency I wasn’t super excited about, but wanted to get some interview practice in. When I met the ACD who interviewed me, we really hit it off and it made me (..)

Any fishes working 2 full time jobs simultaneously? What’s your experience like? Heard it’s been trending upward due to WFH.


My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
