Been posting my more expensive watches here, but what do we think about this? Cannot afford the Double Red Sea Dweller lol, but this does a good job of giving me the feel of it. Robust and Good Movement though !! Thoughts?
Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)

What’s it like actually living in LA? From the Midwest and wanting to move to a bigger city (NYC, Bos etc) but the idea of LA entices me. Been as a visitor but curious as to actually living there TIA
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.
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Has anyone ever used a corporate code from a former employer for a personal car rental and had any issues? I don’t work for this company anymore but I still have their code/rental link for leisure car rentals and it works. Just nervous to book, especially considering insurance in case something happens.
Applied for a role at Strategy& US. Know how long they’ll take to get back to me? Would love to know if I’ve been granted an interview or rejected out right.
Have you ever quit a job and began your new job just to realize it is not what you were expecting? I’m at a new company and I completely hate it. The role described during the interview and job description is not even close to the work and lack of responsibility I actually have. I feel as if I was misled just so they could fill in a spot. My work is all loan staff. The challenging part is I have to force myself to complete my job. I’ve never was like this before. I have spoken (continued)
SA at K. Was approached for Manager role at EY in FSO - FSRM. 6+ years exp, and been working as a manager (w/o the title) at K. Will they come through with the manager offer or try to get me in as SA?
Just had the worst interview of my life… i don’t know if it’s because it’s my time if the month, but I was overcome with nerves… and now all i feel like doing is punching a wall. I know I could be positive and maybe I’m being hard on myself due to Mother Nature but…
How much are the hourly rates for the seasonal contractors at the B4 firms? Especially in tax. Thanks
I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar
BCG 🐠 or anyone else who recently interviewed with BCG - is there a new interview format? If so, can someone please share this format. I saw someone mentioned online test, and math test etc. instead of case studies.

Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
Hi, I got selected in wipro. I have worked in 3 organization till now. So in my first organization my last working day was 23rd oct 2017 and for my 2 nd organization my joining date is 25 sept 2017....these dates are overlapping because my 1st organization had vacation concept(bench without pay)..... So i served notice period there and my second organization asked me join immediately. Will this overlapping affect my bgv in wipro? Everything is genuine. Any suggestions?
If you project ends right around when you turn in 2 week notice, will most company let you go immediately or honor your 2 weeks? Those 2 weeks will just be bench weeks then. (I’m Not going to a competitor).
Getting into consulting (MBB) seems easier than getting a choice position in industry (e.g. Corporate strategy director).
