Why doesn't ACN give bonuses to new hires right away? How do you expect a college kid to move to a new city w/ no funds? 😑
Getting back to the travel is like going for a new job. Can't believe I left my child behind again.
Any moms out there? Finding it really tough to work in consulting and be with my kid for only a few hours a day. Luckily I'm local, but not sure how long that will last.
Took a kid from my college out to coffee for recruiting and he ordered a small coffee cuz he didn't know what the cap was. Made him reorder
First week training power point has scatterplot slide and kid raises his hand and tells the whole class that it looks like an "inappropriate splatter"
Child crying at the gate at 6:45am- bad morning to have forgotten to charge the noise cancelling headphones. #rookiemistake
Kid (clearly a consultant of lesser age than me) tried to cut me in premier boarding line. I blocked him. He's now in a middle seat next to me. Hope he's not planning on having to go to the bathroom.
Fuck you Berkeley Missouri police and you Mother fucking speed trap on I-70. Joke is on you I'm here every week so I'll make that court date...
Hahaha! It is times like these I wish I could post pics. The very pregnant terminal bar waitress just boarded the plane to track someone down who skipped out on a bar tab! #PHL
When your Uber from LGA smells like baby powder and lavender. I guess this is better than it smelling like curry.
For Deloitte, they cut the Adopt-An-Alumni and Culture Cash budgets. Anyone else nervous about their job security??
Told my mother the best travel purchase I've made was a fire stick... Her response was "are you really that single?" 😑
To the woman who brought her screaming child onto the red eye, I'm sure you tried your best but I really hate you.
When you're the only girl on the team and the rest of the team votes Hooters for Friday lunch and your waitress ends up being 7 months pregnant ... Lololol 😂😂 #jokesonyouguys
Kinda sick of boomers & gen xers hating on millennials. I'm 30 and value life over work. I'm not some lazy kid who lives with his parents. STFU old people. Your debt addiction fucked our country.

After having worked in industry, in a start up, and in consulting, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t like working.
What is the annual appraisal range for financial modeling associate at Ahmedabad, India?
What’s everyone’s take on Alteryx?
Dinner conversations about miles and hotel points..
Got the call today about promotion - super excited for this next leg. Also a bit nervous given performance expectations and the market right now. I know things will improve and I'm in a great service line with huge future growth potential, but a little daunting nonetheless. Great way to start the weekend!
Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
Everyone laid off from PwC, Deloitte, ACN, and (possibly?) EY should just their own firm. We could create some place that doesn't have a shit culture and where people aren't walking on eggshells
Not fond of the idea of ranking the big 4 in terms of who is best to work for. It's just a matter of preference to the company. Besides, we all work terrible hours anyway. Same bull, different firm.
Silliest "optics"/client perception warning you've gotten? I've been called out for eating breakfast before (before business hours but on client site)
Interesting statistic I just saw: Today 50% of women aged 30 do not currently have children. This is the highest it’s been since they began keeping records of it. 🤯
So what’s the recruiting role look like for everyone?Are you enjoying it? Extremely busy these days?
Hi, iam joining ID firm and am very new to the billing world. What are some helpful tips that you can share with me? Also, in general, what are some things that you wish you knew when you first started. TIa
I agree with you PWC. To my advantage I work really close to the partner and senior managers and managers of my group. It helped me move up to senior in two years and I'm looking into a manger promotion within a year as per the partners suggestion. I'm scared if he knows I'm gay that it might hurt my chances of moving up fast.
Since nothing in this direction existed so far, I made a bowl for anyone in risk consulting, risk & reg, treasury consulting or any area relevant for risk professionals. Especially for talking about opportunities, comparisons between firms and regions and news. (For all who have seen this already in other bowls sorry for the repetition) https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_h6rhrx7wp5
TFW when you block out an hour on your calendar to take a industry interview in the client conference room.
