Best cashback credit cards in the UAE?
Any 🐠 from EY London? I'm planning to apply for UKI assurance based in London as Senior associate, just wanna wrap my head around the culture, work environment etc
So Altman clearly beats out MBB in some sectors and is trying to position themselves as an MBB or perhaps tier 2 equivalent, but they’re just not matching the salaries. Why were Analyst salaries only raised to $95K when my friends at big firms (not just tier 2 but also MBB) will be making $100-120k as second years?
Hi Mindtree Minds, I have an offer from Mindtree
Years of Experience:6.8
Tech: React Js
Current CTC:15.5 ( Fixed) + 10% bonus
Today is the last day to accept the offer, I am not sure whether I should accept the offer, as My appraisal in current organization is due, results will be out in this month, so I am assuming my ctc here will be around 19 LPA
So will it be a right move to move on?
Anyone move states and have to take a new bar exam with less than 2 years of practice? What was your job application process like and how did you time studying for/taking the bar?
What makes WLB at the Big 4 so challenging? I see a lot of people from tech advisory complaining about it on Fishbowl. Isn't WLB dependant on the client/project like most service based companies? Are there any additional responsibilities?
Has anyone here started a non-profit org/ been a board member of one, in USA on H1B? Pls DM w/ your suggestions including immigration attorneys I should talk to. Really want to setup one for a philanthropic cause but google searches call it out as unlikely.
What were the staff 2 to senior raises last year? Got almost 30% from staff 1 to 2, but that was so high that I guessed it was a market adjustment
Has anyone moved from always being customer side to being a consultant? I'm a lead doing all benefits, talent, and reporting. 7 years config experience and 3 pro certs.
Did you like it? Challenges?
I've been approached by some consulting firms but very nervous about WL balance and vacation time.
Has anyone here put in for mental health leave? I am seriously thinking of talking about it with my therapist on Thursday. I'm having heartburn, insomnia, multiple migraines a week (almost threw up today during my planning period 🤢). I've gained weight, I'm miserable all the time, I'm 39 and healthy but I honestly thought I was having a heart attack a week ago. I'm so anxious I'm short of breath most of the time.
Would like to know your experiences...
I'm an SM at a big4 focusing exclusively on strategy work, my team also does CDD though I have never done a single diligence. If I start asking for CDD, will a couple of years be enough to generate some exit ops? I would assume I'd be limited to op teams within PE, would that be fair? Any reason why not to do it?
Can anyone tell me why HELOC is almost like a taboo? From what I've been reading about, if we are strict and diligent, that might help us in paying off our home loans much faster. What am I missing? This seems too good to be true.
Any 30 and older basketball leagues that are semi competitive in South bay? Pick-up at Coty sports is too inconsistent and tired of waiting 4 games to play maybe one decent one
Those in big law with non-lawyer significant others, how do you make it work? It seems no one really understands the pressures but also truthfully I don’t have as much time to dedicate. Am I doomed to be single forever?
What kind of posts do you want to see pinned in here?
I've been focusing on job openings, but I'm certain there are other topics you're interested in.
I see a lot of posts about the pressures and lack of work-life-balance in corporate work. I haven't experienced this in Big Law real estate practice yet. I'm a second year. Does it get worse?

Watching the Indian Matchmaking on Netflix. Every other minute a guy or his parents are asking for "fair skin." 🤦
PS: I am not Indian and really don't want to offend anyone, but I think this is not a positive messaging for young girls.
Ladies who’ve sold their engagement rings, where did you do that? My ring hasn’t yet been appraised.
I don’t really like working from home, but I will say: it’s a godsend on the first day of your period!! Heating pads, comfy clothes, and working from bed for the win 🥰
Hey ladies, have a fitness/sizing related question. My hips are at 38.5-39.5 inches which is a medium (size 6 or 8) but then my waist comes in at like 33-34 which is an XL or even XXL according to most size charts. Any advice on how I can bring down my waist size? I've been calorie counting and working out, lost ten pounds but my waist size is the same and it's really annoying
What are your go-to pick me ups?
First dates- do we have to always order something? Will “I had a heavy brunch” be taken as a sign of disinterest?
Perspective needed. For context, I am a first year partner and also new to the firm. I sometimes feel dismissed - not by my fellow partners but those at the more junior ranks. Meetings get declined until I send an email and they see my title. Are people really not used to seeing female partners? I feel like I have to announce it at the beginning of calls to be taken seriously, which feels quite silly. Is this in my head?
Does anyone else ever feel bullied or pushed to go on camera ? Some days I really don’t want to. It’s not “cute” to see other women struggle to deal with their needy families as I’m dealing with mine . As a woman over 40, I honestly need makeup to not look like a zombie and I don’t want to be seen that way. I’m so much more comfortable and effective without having to do it. I feel pushed to do it by certain partners and it really bugs me . Am I the only one ?
I have a cocktail dinner party to attend and shipping is delayed on nearly everything I like. Any tips for putting together a cute outfit asap? Party is on Thursday evening. TIA!
I feel like my brain is running on full speed at all times. I have so many things on my to do list but I can’t focus on one thing. When I start one task, my brain keeps thinking of the other things...
So, I got divorced last year. I made more than him (significantly) and ultimately had high goals for our life. I never expected him to make more, but when it came time to have kids, he kept telling me he didn’t want to. Ultimately, I divorced him and he went after every dime. I gave it willingly, even though I had always suspected he didn’t really love me, and now 6 months after our divorce, he cashed in his portion of my 401k and bought an engagement ring. (Read pt 2 below)
I have two one time maple leaf lounge passes (transferrable!) Expiring by December 31, and redeemable in Canadian (domestic and transborder departure zone) and US airports (LA, New York and Newark). Happy to give away! FCFS. Please DM
My mother keeps telling me the reason I haven’t had a boyfriend in years is because I have sex with them before a relationship. Do you think this is true? I didn’t want to believe it but it’s year 4 of singleness ☹️☹️
My manager is absent on the project so the client and the rest of the team keeps running to me for answers. I don’t feel like it’s part of my job description to help them. For example, the PM did...
Have you ever taken the first offer just to get out of your current company? Leadership has not followed through on anything this year despite my proactiveness, patience, and strong performance. I kind of don’t care anymore and just want to work literally anywhere else
I’ve been on birth control pill for ~5 years and no negative side effects. Is there any reason to get off of it if I’m not trying to get pregnant any time soon? Any long term implications I should consider?
Sleuthed out that someone I went on a few dates with has a girlfriend back home... and has probably cheated on her a few times. Do I tell her? Do I confront him? Any advice is much appreciated 😔
What’s your favorite way of organizing to-do lists? Paper and pen, OneNote, sticky notes, whiteboard? Do you color code? I like to include every little detail on sticky notes and it’s getting hard to manage
