Do I have to disclose where I'm working from if I'm on the bench? Flew to mallorca 2 weeks ago, I've paid up a month on the condo I'm at near pollenca. I log in and help with proposals and what not but during downtime I'm at the beach, exploring or biking. Nobody knows. Might stay here longer don't have a flight home yet... Just wondering if I can get in shit.
Travel 🐠, going to Paris for the first time. What is the best way to go from CDG to airbnb in 4th arrondissment?
Does anyone know how late a Delta flight can get delayed? I have one Thursday night at 8 PM but I’m scared of delays because of showers. Will it get delayed or cancelled at that point?
If anyone has an extra GPU that they’d like to donate, I’m flying United’s longest flight (UA1) this week and would really appreciate it!
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after
W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
Marriott and SPG members can link their accounts, Match elite status, and transfer points 3-to-1!
PSA - those who are so close to Marriott lifetime platinum elite should work on getting the status by end of year. If you do this you will be grandfathered into lifetime platinum premier
For those that travel every week and are in your early 30s, how do you do it? Do you plan to continue traveling until you make SM or Partner?
First leg of flight was delayed missing connecting flight. CWT automatically rebooked on red eye. Can I change it? Seems unreasonable because it adds 5 hrs more of travel time on top of an existing 6
All right FB let's share the love - what and how does one get perks for this f-up Delta has? I've seen miles/coupons/hotel arrangements so far.
Stay diligent, friends. I just checked one of last week’s hotel bills and found a misc charge for in room dining that I most definitely didn’t use. I wonder how many of us don’t notice these charges?
Thinking about buying a single family home for ~600k in the next year or so OR pushing it out an additional year to get a multi family for ~1m. Thoughts? Current HHI ~175k, $40k student loan debt ($200 monthly) no other debts (credit card/car etc) Project HHI for option two ~210k. Let’s assume I can save 75k for DP for option 1 and 150k for option 2.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a product that helps with potential carpal tunnel? I realize we don’t always work in the most ergonomic environments and I need something to help, esp. w/ travel.
Currently in ECM at an RBC/UBS/WF and have an offer to join a T2 Consulting firm's strongest group as an Associate (think LEK/OW/ATK). Non-target undergrad and no MBA (although may ultimately want to get one), and this would be a ~20% base salary decrease. Looking for more varied strategic/operational experience and to develop a broader skillset as ECM has gotten repetitive and the exit opportunities are limited. No wife/kids/mortgage etc. so don’t mind travel. Thoughts?
Dumb q- will my status with AA carry over to JetBlue? I know you can now earn points with them
Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
Holding all else constant, do you prefer two continuous weeks of bench time or 10 hours less work per week for 8 weeks
Boutique consulting firm vs Big 4, thinking of making the switch to get more structured support and learning... any thoughts? Attrition is rlly high at my firm and project deadlines have been delayed due to resource issues
Deloitte offer says up to 31% AIP, but realistically, what % can I expect? Manager role.
I have a legit medical exemption for the Vax. Does this mean I cannot go into the office and client cite? Will I be forced to work from zoom? Also will everyone think I’m antivax and judge me?
Trying to evaluate a verbal offer in capital planning. $145k plus 7% bonus. 10 years of experience but a bit of career change. NYC. Seems to on the low end but not entirely sure. Any thoughts or tips are welcome.
Moving from PwC advisory to kpmg technology, knowing kpmg offers me a senior manager position and pwc doesn’t seem to get me there, even with amazing evaluations and super interesting roles offered, yey or nay?
I have a CSR and am debating a second CC. Does it make the most sense to do a airline or hotel or some other cash back card?
Hi Guys, I am a consultant for EY India and have been shortlisted for PWC India Senior Associate profile. Can anyone here help me understand what salary bracket should I negotiate in? I am currently at 12 Fixed. Also does being from EY make my chances of getting in better? Anyone who’s been through similar experience, please share your stories. Interview experiences and tips would be appreciated too. Thanks
Does anyone work for or has worked in McKinsey Implementation? I am currently being recruited for a role but want a non-biased description of what the offering is like. Thanks in advance!
Sooo... Living a fine life. Make good salary, have a nice apartment and stuff. Somehow, I mean, being by now a mid thirty female I feel like I have failed (at least regarding this point, don't know how to proceed? (I mean, I am a 34yr old, successful person, but even though I managed having good relationships until I turned 30, by now I just seriously feel old.) Colleagues have either met their match years ago or are incompetent of relationships
Best practices on how to turn down a project without burning bridges? Had several project meetings with SMs trying to staff me (currently on bench), all long term so can’t do multiple. How do i break the news to the other Seniors while leaving the door open for future ops (enjoyed all the conversations)?
Just learned from a colleague that they were selected for GS-13 off the street without an interview. Is this common?
