I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?
One of our older advisors is about to retire so his book will be split amongst us junior advisors. What can I do to pitch myself to him and to management to earn the bigger accounts?

Hi all, I’m a new SM in a big four and have had limited exposure to SMs prior to my promotion. Was just curious what the top qualities are that you admire/strive for in the SM role that you’ve seen or experienced in your career? One word response or novels are welcome! 😊
All right FB let's share the love - what and how does one get perks for this f-up Delta has? I've seen miles/coupons/hotel arrangements so far.
Any good ideas for a couples trip in late Sep for one week, leaving from SF? Ideal would be road trip or direct flight of less than ~6 hours, more nature than city.
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
Can anyone share comp ranges for Sr. Asc banking strategy groups (NYC)? Also any comments on lifestyle would be helpful 😊

Been working for a year at my position. First full time gig programming. Even got interns and a raise. Still have no clue what the fuck I'm working with or doing.
Below is the message I got from HCL after completion of salary discussion and even after receiving letter of intent..what does this means...do I need to consider that my position is filled by someone? The position is currently on hold & offer will be released once position is active again.
Why on earth did I decide to get into IBD AFTER getting my MBA? I really question my decision9making skills sometimes.
Currently working as SM2 at PwC and interviewing with KPMG for a D position. Is is a good comparison in terms of designation? How’s the comp for D in KPMG? T2 city here. I have been with EY in the past and can vouch PwC offered a better WLB and culture. Always heard KPMG has better WLB and culture. Is it just a speculation or have some truth in it? Strategic Advisory FSS role, 8.5 YOE, masters.
Interesting article. Still largely against this kind of arrangements – probably because of my past and the fact that viscerally scared of being taken advantage of. That said, the article does nuance the whole topic. https://www.anothermanmag.com/life-culture/11193/the-secret-life-of-gay-sugar-babies
Staying in "The Palace" in SF for the weekend, my toilet has a remote, and the client is paying for it. What a life
Airlines keep making me check my carry-on. I definitely saw space on today's flight though. Any tips? I don't want to have to wait for baggage claim
Can anyone speak to culture and lifestyle in the VC/EM groups at WSGR and Perkins Coie? Considering a lateral move as a junior. Very unhappy at my firm but I do have it good hours-wise by biglaw standards doing lender-side finance.. nervous about going to a total sweatshop.
Just joined Deloitte last week but heard Bain is recruiting and was wondering if it’s worth it to try for it? Background: 1 year exp in Engineering out of undergrad. Goal is to get into mbb post mba
