Any gay male fishies in San Diego?
My wife has a job opportunity in San Diego. We are thinking about moving from dc. Anyone have thoughts on sd? We have visited a few times, but mostly for touristy things.
Dear ACN consultant that talked to me on the bus to DFW, let's grab a drink if you haven't left yet.
Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.
"Is this the regular or TSA line?" #ORD
Where should I move to? Top choices are: LA, San Diego, Austin, Washington DC? Currently living in Florida and looking for better tech job opportunities + not super cold / rainy (like Seattle)
I’m sure this has been asked 100 times before but newbie here. Looking for a recommendation on which airline to use as preferred for points/status/etc... ideally flying out of DCA.
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)
30F, thinking about separating from my marriage and looking at cities I could move to. Currently working in ATL and I’d need to come back at least once a month(prefer driving) since I’d still be working/based here. Ideas on affordable yet fun cities? I make 120k right now & I’d prob take the dog with me. TIA! 💚💜
@DTW All gates holding off on boarding due to "some security issue". Anyone else around the airport know what the issue is?
What’s a normal rule of thumb for how much to spend on rent in a high COL area eg BOS, NYC, SF. Of course the percentage would be different if you’re making say 100k versus 300k
Finally got into Chicago after a bunch of delays in SFO, and my uber driver missed exit and the trip is now 20 minutes longer due to rerouting :(
Heads up for TSA precheck lady with a power trip in AA terminal in ORD. Made me check a bag that fit in the bin and that I flew with 130 times last year
Everyone at DFW, start drinking.
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
ZS 🐠! I received an offer for the NY office and am leaning towards taking it. Any thoughts you can share about the culture, work life balance, etc? Ran out of time during interview to ask...
How is CSX as a client at Nagarro?
I don't understand the Deloitte cell phone expense policy. $200 for equipment? Doesn't Deloitte pay for our work phones anyway without having to expense? I remember just being given one when joining

Any Oliver Wyman folks out there willing to chat and perhaps provide a referral? Heard they are hiring for all roles. Thank you.
Does anyone have insight into the SD Biglaw market? I know LW,SMRH, Cooley, DLA, JD, & MoFo are the big players. Anyone have insight into the strengths of each firm or culture? How does SD biglaw compare to LA/SV?
Does anyone have a framework or other resources for scaling up a small workforce in a strategic way?
I am two months short of completing 2 years of service at the current firm. I got a good offer and looking to move. This means I will have to pay back about $6k in joining bonus. Is there anyway I can negotiate this? I have so much overtime work hours that can currently be tracked to about 500+ hours for this year alone. What are somethings I should be aware of when paying back the joining bonus?
Was laid off by D 2 years ago. Was reached for a position by a recruiter and have final rounds soon. Is this a joke, would they really hire me again? Note I was in Advisory new job is for Consulting.
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
Have a call scheduled with a big 4 recruiter for a role in the finance transformation group. Any suggestions on how I could go about preparing for this call? Also if anyone out there is currently in one of the finance transformation groups and is willing to have a quick call please let me know!

Took a diagnostic test for GMAT got a 550. I would like to raise it by at least 100pts. I understand that’s a lot haha and Looking to take real thing in Nov. is that enough time? Been doing about 1-2hrs a day during work week and ramping it up on weekends. Thanks!
Is anyone interested in investing in a commercial asset that returns average CoC of 10%, 8% pref and an IRR of 15%+. Total return of 100%+ typically 5 year hold. I’m looking to help raise some capital from sophisticated investors over the next few months but not sure if people in consulting are interested in this. Most of my investors are friends or acquaintances as of now.
