🎏 fam, would love some counsel: is 90k starpounts for 132k United miles and 7 free night certificate at a cat1-5 worth it? I have ~162k starpounts and am wondering if I should do this...
It's amazing how my Sunday night anxiety vanishes when I don't have to travel for the week.
So glad I got to see day break on a Monday morning. Get to catch an 8 am flight for the next few months. Guess it's come down to finding such small happiness to keep life moving. #consulting
Does anybody else here get tired of people complaining about WLB while clearly refusing to take control of their own time commitments and travel? IMO, if you’re working 50hrs+, that’s poor planning.
Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.
What's your monthly spending like outside of rent? ie. shopping, travel, eating out, groceries, etc. TC as well for reference.
Random travel thought - what’s the consensus on looking people up whose name you saw on their ticket/bag/ any other PII that the person revealed. Creepy or not?
Have anyone taken flight lessons before?
Trying to decide which airline to pledge my allegiance next year. I’m debating between AA vs UA and live in Chicago area. I travel regularly but in short distance. Which one would you recommend & why?
Made it on TPG's IG story from the event at the Delta museum last night. It's the little wins.
Delta Medallion - NYC based and will be close to renewing plat this year. Miles run or take gold/miles and get a head start on next year?
Thanks, Mr. Obama for delaying my flight.
Seattle Delta sky club FTW.
ZS fish - What do you expect travel to be like after offices open? (I.e. similar to pre-Covid when it was minimal/local?)
I turned down work travel because I couldn’t make my childcare arrangements work. Feeling mixed. Happy I leaned back and did what is best for my fam, but wonder if it will hurt me down the road
Fuck this M-F travel
PwC Deals SM compensation. How much is it and what’s the lifestyle? Do they travel. It would be the NYC office focused on CDD and growth strategy
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
What’s the acceptable minimum time to spend in strategy consulting post-MBA to be worth it for the career boost and exit opps? Is 1.5 years enough or 2 years is minimum?
Officially decided that BAH federal is not paying enough. What companies are actively hiring for commercial work and preferably paying more than 100k for 5 years experience and an MBA?
Just hit my first major milestone since starting FIRE and can’t share it with anyone I know. I increased my net worth 100k a year, on a 100k total salary, thanks to intensive saving and good investments and am proud of myself. I’m hoping with FIRE I can be out of the corporate rat race in just over a decade.
Any recommendations on workout apps, especially things you can do in a hotel room? The hotel I am in has a really crappy “fitness area”, and not a very safe place to run. Thx
“What’s your process,” I had never really thought about how to articulate that … but I believe not having a good answer on an interview lost me a good job. Now I’ve heard that some copywriters have branded decks or Google slides to represent their process. Thoughts?
What's the deal if you have a vaca planned but you are swapping firms and the vaca will take place while employed at new firm? You tell them during interview?
I love my current project and my team but at the same time i feel so underpaid and undervalued. Im USDC and im carrying the team on my shoulders. Im an analyst with almost 2 yoe so i feel i dont have enough leverage to leave. What can i do? How di people get hired by their clients? Deloitte
Larger ladies, where do you find affordable suits? My younger cousin is suit shopping for job interviews (she’s graduating this year) and is having trouble finding nice-fitting suits that fit her well
Interviewing for a senior project manager role in Salesforce CSG. Can anyone tell me about the role, culture, WLB, etc at Salesforce? Is WLB and culture really as good as they claim?
Is it too late to get a referral for full time after ugrad? I’m very interested but have only been networking with a few T2 and T3 firms. Given Covid, I felt that MBB and T2 would be a reach, especially with not much consulting experience. Now it looks like most firms are still hiring as usual. Thanks!
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
Maybe a long shot, but anyone know of any Epic projects or customers hiring now/soon? My client ran out of money and isn’t renewing any consultants.
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
If you book a period end accrual (D exp, C Accrued), when you reverse the entry the next day. Wouldnt you be booking the expense in the period you got the invoice, not the period the expense occurred?
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
