Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
My H1B extension was denied in November 2019, following which I returned to India while my company prepared another application for me. In late February, my H1B application for the same job and position was approved and I was due to get my passport stamped but obv the consulates closed. My questions are: 1. Is anybody else in this exact same position? Can I get in touch with you? 2. Would this qualify as the continuing job exception for the visa suspension proclamation?
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Interviewed for Uber Strategy Manager- what a massive joke. Wouldn't tell me the comp on the first interview. Case studies are 3x the size of any other case study I've done for actual fortune 100 companies. And then interview with everyone and their mother, all who wax eloquent about my solutions. But then the last person gives me another case study to do. Towards the end, everyone and HR is giving me a verbal offer, telling me they're excited about me joining their team, I should join asap.

My current company is in talks with a partnership opportunity with a past employer of mine. Is there a professional way to warn my past employer that my current company would not be a good partner.

Yes, I am trying to get out of here. Thank you

What statements should I put in my application? Are they wanting to see NW, spending habits, liquidity…?

Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?

Just saw an intern I managed get promoted to SAE. Trying to figure out how not to get caught in a 2 years = promotion cycle, but it seems that’s where I’m at. Is this normal?? I’d be okay with 1.5 years even, but 2 years and a few months at a role I know I’m kicking ass at sucks. Is it time to jump ship??
The volume of stock photography using people staring at their phone with a huge smile on their face is driving me nuts. Is that the best we can do? Ads, emails, banners, etc., sea of sameness.
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
How often do companies drug test as part of background check? Thinking specifically about marijuana and live in MA where recreational is legal. Have to imagine companies would be more lax here, right?
Need advice for an interview for a mid-level consulting position with a partner tomorrow. From what I understand it will be an hour long behavioral interview which I think is pretty long.

What’s the company culture like at Coca-Cola? Do you see many people get laid off ? I’m thinking of applying for a software engineer position.
Just finishing my first week in as an audit intern and genuinely I have no idea what I'm doing or even a general idea of the audit process. The senior associate left the engagement last week so it's just me and an associate, and they don't have time to give me instruction. Am I stupid or did the e-learns not prepare me for any of this? The training told me I'd be auditing cash but I haven't even touched a bank reconciliation.
I'm on dat Covid-20 shieeet
