airline points: are we assuming points will be zeroed out in coming months, given current state of airlines? I have a TON of united miles and am wondering if I should be investigating transfer options 😩
MBBers that made a switch to Big4, what was the reasoning behind it? Vice versa, what have you found different at MBB than at B4? Pros and cons?
Claim unemployment or try to find your hardest to find a job in the next month and omit the layoff? I want to rush but not settle. Definitely don't want to go back into consulting.
For those who were at mid-tier firms and have left PA/are interviewing, did you feel that your exit opportunities were limited due being at a mid-tier? I’m genuinely curious as I’ll be joining a mid-tier and I am coming from a regional firm. Hoping to pay my dues for another 2-3 years to get senior promotion and get my CPA (halfway done) then exit PA. Don’t really want to hop into B4 but everyone always talks about the B4 prestige being a huge resume booster.
Curious what type of exit ops Risk and Reg folks are seeing in the financial services industry? (Industry/role/comp)
Non-mbb folks that want to enter mbb. If you had a cross offer from all three, would the recent negative publications about McK influence your decision?
After 6 months of interviewing, I finally got an offer with a start-up! Went from $160k total comp in a tier 1 city to $195k total comp in a tier 2 city. If you’re job searching - don’t give up, you can do this!! 👏🏻
For all fellow fishbowlers that were laid off, should we create some group to help each other out and use our networks to help out?
So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in 2 years (and I’m actually pretty good at my job.) But I just want to say, that each time my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new job next week, so we shall see! Good luck to all of you who are starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!
When your teammate forgot to put the conference on mute and you both vented about the client 🤭. Any way to test if they heard anything? We whispered but not too softly
Advice, please? Boss in subsidiary seems jealous auntie-boss and grand-boss @ parent co are starting to pay attention and give me more interesting work, which I want. How do I side step him?
Hello! How can a T2 consultant with 3 years of consulting experience break into PE without an MBA? I have worked on 10+ due diligence cases as a consultant.
I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?
Does LGA actually close to departing and incoming flights after midnight? I’m delayed out of ORD flying Delta and the scheduled arrival time is 1:08 am. 😬
Is it weird/rude to do work during a 2 hour hair appointment (instead of taking the PTO)?
What do you wear to interviews? I like wearing a full suit but I've interviewed at a few startups and felt over dressed. Have an interview at a major agency. Do you still rock a suit or another style?
Would CBS J-term make sense if you want to transition from MBB to a US start-up or FAANG?
