Anyone that has an autonomyous white standing desk; does it look good quality in person? The pictures online are hard to tell and often times look like the cheap $20 foldable white tables that you get from Walmart. Do they give off that vibe in person? Thanks!

I'm planning to have a serious discussion about compensation with my boss during EOY reviews. No raises since joining 3 years ago & am trying to get a realistic idea of what to ask for. Context: Class of 2016 at boutique business lit firm in HCOL SoCal; 86k salary; 1500 hours; no 401k; no remote. I handle my own caseload & supervise associates. Firm does not give annual raises. Quality of work isn't an issue. I like my firm/boss & would prefer not to leave if possible. Appreciate any insight!

To my post-MBA fishes: currently studying for business school and plan to apply for MBA. Hearing a ton about how the true value of an MBA is in networking (AKA happy hours, drinking, etc). I’ve struggled a bit with weight and self image issues in the past. I’ve made great fitness progress and don’t want to give that up. But I am concerned that i won’t vibe well with MBA culture because of this and I won’t get the most out of it. Can anyone relate or provide a bit of their own wisdom? Thanks!

I have a final interview with another firm. Was told the only open question is about whether I’d come in as Senior Consultant/ Associate or Manager. How should I present my case for manager?
