Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
Norwegian living in Norway with my Canadian GF. Planning to move to Canada due to her visa running out. SC at Deloitte working mainly as a Solution Architect + DevOps Engineer, but also experience with Cloud Strategy and IT DD's. Should I be able to find a company to sponsor my visa, or is my best bet an internal transfer? Any other tips? Thank you in advance!

I accepted an offer and employer started H1b processing, now I have another offer giving me around 10% more from earlier offer. Should I asked for equalization or is it something unethical? Appreciate your responses.

Is this mco Visa card claiming free lounge access legit? -(Could see it as a limited time offer to get people on their platform trading crypto or could see it as a total scam)
Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?
Hey ladies- bit of a touchy personal subject. I had my male counterpart recently use a counteroffer that was extended to me to try to push his own raise. Should I feel offended that he's piggybacking off my offer? (We do not have same work balance for context- he has 4 direct reports to my my 1 direct report and the same workload).
Thankful for WFH during my morning sickness. Puking 3x a day is way less awkward at home than at the client site

Dropped down to 2200 for last 2 weeks...haven’t lost a LB. Working out / cardio 5-6x a week. Sleep is good and stress level ok (outside of the covid norms). Any tips or suggestions?
betwn work, travel, clients, teams, lunches & dinners mind still finds time to reminisce about past life... When $5 was not small expense, it was the next meal and not an optional SBUX...
Interviewer says I can reach out and ask any questions. Should I? (already sent TY email to him after interview) I haven't heard anything since my interview one week ago and scared.....
Okay, I seriously love the group I’m in - audit. Very happy. Could do it for life. Genuinely. Interacting with another group (advisory) - they’ve really come to like me. I got an unsolicited interview
Anyone willing to offer a referral to Deloitte human capital consulting? Heard there are ongoing layoffs, but there is a really interesting new job posting which fits my background. Thanks!
If I get rejected after final rounds at Big 4 is it weird to immediately apply to the same firm but different role? Will they know I just got rejected? Experienced hire btw
Post your unpopular opinion. I’ll start: Layoffs are good for firms. It keeps the top-performers, aligns reality with company’s expectations, and as a result, brings better work.
Just gonna vent here bc I can’t do this on normal social media but it infuriates me how people just blatantly ignore requests to RSVP to events. I sent an initial invite for our client holiday..cont
Curious, anyone works or has worked in the PCS group at Marks Paneth? If so, what is the culture like, perks, hours, comp for a senior? Considering on applying but just want to get some insight scoop. Thanks!
how would you feel if, as a person of color, you were then told by this same agency that you were going to be working on multicultural marketing efforts? assume 1) you have no experience in this area and 2) this responsibility was never communicated during the interview process https://joinfishbowl.com/post_d31ry
so nice to have partners and managers that are explicitly appreciative about hard work. Yes, we've worked ~45 hours since Sunday - despite monday holiday- but feels nice to celebrate as a full team!
My roommate is currently having a very loud conference call with 60+ very very giggly people. This wfh is going to be fun... she can sit in her room and close her door but nope. Thanks for listening 🤦♀️
Anyone regret their exit?
How much house can I afford? Single, I make 136, putting 19.5 into 401k, 6 into Roth, another 10 into stocks, and 2 into crypto/ year. Have savings of 35k and will use my bonus of 20k as well for down payment. decent properties in areas I would consider living start north of 325k. Am I better off waiting and saving more for a bigger down payment, just going for it, or lowering my expectations?
What s the best credit union to get a car loan for an used car ( L1B visa holder / 1 year finance history / fico = good ) ? Does Dtt support any credit union ?
I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
