Consulting

When you're trying to be good and go to the office for ONCE in a Friday and then halfway through the walk it starts pouring in SF. (What drought?!)

That's what you get for trying to stroll into the office at 1pm 😉

That's why you should never hit the office before 4:45pm on a Friday. #where'shappyhour

[please be nice] At last count, I’ve gotten to the final interview 4 times this year, and then got turned down - what gives?! I don’t understand. Anyone experienced something similar?

I'm looking at rebalancing my 401K, but I need some help. Back in 2018 when I rebalanced to a new fund Y, it looks like it moved what I had in Target Fund into Y but subsequent contributions went into the Target Fund. 2 years later, the fund Y has the $2K but Target Fund grows. Can I change my contributions to consistently go into different buckets and not just the one Target Fund? Please help!

Do fellow 🐠 out here send thank you notes after final round interview loops?!? Seems like a pain to try to have Hr facilitate forwarding in your behalf and fairly certain they can’t share email ids anyway so just wondering what the professional best practice here or if it’s not required after the final round.

Do BCG or McKinsey send out an email letting you know you’ve been referred? Or do they just wait to contact you if you’ve been selected for an interview?

Anyone have experience taking an RM role in a more corporate industry (i.e. consulting, tax, finance)? I'm curious to see what else is out there and wondering if there are pros/cons (aside from the dress codes) or if it's a "same shit, different industry" type of situation.

Was in the interview process for 4 firms, all of which conducted 3-4 interviews. 1 extended an offer, reached out to the other 3 to pass, then the remaining 3 decided to give offers. Wtf.

My SM is such an asshole. Now that I know I won’t get a raise for putting up with his bs I am losing motivation to work hard. The only thing keeping me going is a fear of getting laid off, but it definitely does not push me to go above and beyond...anyone else feeling this way?

Was offered a position as an experienced associate at PwC but no room for negotiation with Salary because of the cohort model. Anything else I can negotiate at PwC or is it all fixed?

Is consulting losing its appeal due to the lack of travel? And if so, will firms have to raise base salaries to attract talent? (I’m specifically talking about Strategy Consulting)

Who else gets trigged by people who spent 99% of their day with a Skype status of “busy” regardless of whether they are in meetings or one calls? 🙋‍♂️
