Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
How do you deal with cliquey co-workers? First day of intern training and everyone is already all cliqued up. Worry about it or nah?
Is it a better idea or accept a post-grad return offer after internship or take my chances and recruit with other firms?

In my younger years (internship - 23 then), I developed sexual feelings for our managing partner (Female by the way). He was 50+M. Because of this, I opted to leave the firm as it would have been a distraction. Now I am grown and 32. I feel the need to go back to the firm (it's a good firm that is well ranked). The partner is no longer the managing partner but, were I to move back... I am likely to be in his practice team. What do you think?
Anyone else get tired of the LinkedIn charade? Every day I see countless posts by people in advertising/marketing that come across as preachy, self-indulgent, humble brags that annoy me. Like, the pompous CEO/CD who writes a long post about that time he hired an intern and learned a valuable life lesson that we could all learn. Or the super-duper smart Copywriter who regurgitates Olgyvisms that we’ve all read a billion times to show his or her worth. It’s 2020. And I’m jaded.

With the end of intern szn looming, what are the worst/funniest things you’ve seen done by interns?
Hot take: Leaving big 4 consulting and joining middle market firm (A&M, GT, etc.) does not, I repeat, does not mean less hours.

When are you recommending pregnant women to stop working? Is your facility doing inductions for low risk women?
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
If you started working at a company for like a year as a staff level, for example 2019-present, and this is reflected on LinkedIn, do you guys update any promotions to show it as (the date or year of promotion) -present... or just show it as 2019-present? I’ve seen people do the latter more but is that even right?
Hey all- anyone experience difficulty with MBA apps due to being an over-represented minority? (Not sure how one would quantify this, but curious to see what yall think)
My agency asked me for work examples from previous experience that they used in landing a new client. This is a first for me. Anyone else experience this. Did you get a commission or any bonus?
People who stand up as soon as the plane lands, can you explain why? Not being snarky, but I don't see how it benefits much?
There was this SNL skit a couple weeks ago with a kid who was some sort of high school sports hero, but then there was a news report about how it was a setup. Can't find it in a search - any insights?

Any insight/advice on tax M&A opportunities at consulting firms? I’m a SA & not ready to go industry and cap my salary out yet, so I’m curious about professional service firms other than PA. Specifically concerned about whether learning opportunities are equivalent and which consulting firms have quality tax practices.
