Starting the interview process with Accenture, border between analyst and consultant. What would salaries look like? Also, what about benefits, vacation, etc.?
Any success stories of setting boundaries while pregnant? I am working 70+ hours a week and routinely taking nighttime calls, etc. I’m so exhausted and feel like I am running myself down. Just got out of first trimester. Is it kosher to just be like “hey, I’m not working more than 50 hour weeks, period”?
I rented a car on vacation in Hawaii from Avis about 4 months ago. Now I’m getting mail claiming I owe 2K in damages and trying to collect. Has anyone dealt with this? The car was in perfect condition when I returned it.
How do you go about handling a parent doing the work vs the student? How do you grade it? Or do you lol

I have a holiday party with my group at work (small group of 20) and their plus ones. I invited the girl I'm seeing and she said yes. I want to bring her and show her off, and plus, she's a great conversationalist. We're seeing each other exclusively but haven't dtr'ed. I'm also new to this group so I haven't really come out to anyone yet because it hasn't come up in conversation. How would you introduce her? Are people gonna ask a bunch of questions if I just say "this is X?"
If I am fired, does pwc nyc have to pay you out for unused vacation and unused holiday? I’m thinking getting fired is a good option for me... can’t believe my thoughts..

As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
Anyone who’s been through a divorce, any tips of what to know that lawyers might not tell you? Have a toddler and contemplating divorce (NY based). Feel like I’m about to make a decision that’s life changing, but I don’t think I can “stay for kid” anymore. Multiple affairs found via text msgs.
I’ve been saving all of my kid’s clothes for her little sister, but this is the first time she’s outgrown her underwear. What do experiences moms do? Save it to be used again by the little one? Recycle it? Donate it and buy new underwear when the second needs it? The thought of sharing underwear kinda weirds me out. I also feel weird donating it, but I was reading online that there are places that really appreciate second hand underwear.
Anyone else find it impossible to control what you eat pregnant? I was a littler overweight to begin with and I’m up 40 pounds already (two weeks left) just stress eating ice cream all damn day 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
Not confession but asking for advice: I have a sibling who, since childhood, thinks that my mom favors me more than her. For example, if she’s eating smth and my mom goes ‘we’ll leave some for you’ to me in front of her, she would get mad at her and show temper tantrums. She has told my mom how she feels too but I think she’s getting mad at very trivial things? I don’t know if she hates me or is jealous of me since I’m the supposed favored child. Should I just keep pretending everything’s ok?

So i primarily come from a tech background (did CS in undergrad and currently 2.5 YOE in digital transformations at B4). Gonna be starting b-school soon and found out that most associates go through case interviews that cover all topics, meaning i have to start learning other areas. I’ve never done case interviews before and have no clue where to get started 🙃...any tips for someone in my position? Helpful tips/resources? Thanks fam!

Hello fishes, I got email from Accenture stating you did not clear skill interview required for this role. We are u able to proceed with your candidature. Is there any chance HR might call after this ? Performed exceptionally well for other questions.except the online coding tool. Not sure why I was asked to code suddenly. I explained the logic used and code was compiling without any error.but they needed exact output in the tool. Any thoughts?

Possibly stupid question: does a promotion to ACD help your overall job prospects? I see a fair amount of SrCW job listings and freelance opportunities but seldom ACD/writer. I’m ready to the promotion and would like the raise but I’m honestly wondering if it will only make it harder to take another job one day, or even freelance. Please tell me I’m wrong.

Finishing college, should I take an offer in a S&O role at a big tech company or go for consulting at tier2/big4/Accenture? Which is better for long term growth trajectory and pay progression. I know consulting can be leveraged to get a position in tech but can I also leverage my tech experience to get higher pay as well or is it not as effective as consulting?
