Just tell them, it’s like being vegan. Everyone cares and is dying to be informed.

I hate how much of a tease those orange tags are. Completely worthless in the US but surprisingly effective in Europe

I thought I was special with it the first time I flew after making status. Then I realized 7 out of the 8 golf bags at oversized all had them 😔

When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.

Folks I am from Germany. I have seen MBB hiring culture is very diff than from the US/UK. For consulting roles whether be strategy/implementation/sector-specific they prefer folks with Masters or Ph.D. rather than MBAs from top B schools around the globe. Is it true?

Any advice for negotiation? I made the mistake of letting slip my current salary to the recruiter and now I’m in final rounds at FB and the recruiter disclosed the salary for the position. It seems to be quite below industry average based on Glassdoor and other sources, but I know once given the salary it’s hard to negotiate at FB. I recently got a title change at my current company, and possible salary increase, so I was thinking of using that to counter. Never negotiated before!

Just finished my first year in Big 4 Tech Consulting. Got highest possible marks and am starting to get frustrated by lackluster learning opportunities (still have not met a soul that I work with in person) and the allure of consulting is completely dead for me at this point. I know the job market at Tech companies is hot right now… but I feel I may be a bit too early to jump ship. Should I wait until the first big promotion / increase for leverage, or is Big Tech actually hiring 1 YoE Analysts?
