Need some advice here…I’m about 3 months in and a senior male associate told me to just google it when I asked him a question. I told him that hurt my feelings. After apologizing that he said that meanly but was just offering advice he has completely stopped responding to me. Was I oversensitive? Just not sure what’s going on here…
What’s your thought on a male colleague’s pursuit of spending more time with family given that (i) he’s in his twenties; (ii) he has a newly borne baby; (iii) his wife is a foreigner and does not have a salaried job. He decides to leave my current firm and if he does, his entire family will lose insurance. I personally found it very irresponsible but was told being wrong. So I want to know why I am wrong. This has bothered me for a while.
Should maternity/paternity leave be equal?
Coming back from maternity leave in a few weeks, and it looks like I need a whole new wardrobe...Is it even realistic to hope I can fit my old clothes eventually?
Holland and Knight, Tampa and Orlando. What do you all think? What are salaries (3rd year)? Parental leave only after a certain amount of time?
FTM Dad: I'm helping to put together the registry, anyone have the Uppa Baby Vista, is it worth the price?
I found out that I was pregnant (unplanned) last week and it has absolutely shredded my relationship. I left the home my bf and I share, and I came to stay with my family. Part of the reason it got so bad is because he vehemently wants me to get an abortion, and I don’t know if I can do it. There wasn’t even a discussion of keeping it. He told me in no uncertain terms that he would resent me forever. I need help. Can anyone recommend a virtual counselor for us? Does anyone have any advice?
Today I finally reached my milestone of being completely debt free and having 100k in savings. Growing up in a single parent immigrant household where skipping meals was the norm, this is such a surreal experience. I want to hear what brought you joy today fish ❤️
My best friend and his wife lost their baby. Miscarriage during the second trimester. I want to support them but what should I do, if anything? I don’t have children or know anyone who has miscarried before so I’m not sure what they need right now.
I lost a parent recently and flew to india from the US, took the week of dec 14th off, planning to get back Jan 2nd week. The recent UK bans have me a little worried that something similar may happen in the US. Anyone recently flown from India to NYC willing to share your experience? Also, does EY have a bereavement leave policy i should charge my time to? or does it all go to vacation? Also for context, how much time off is considered okay in such situations?
I met with a girl who is born and bought up in States. she said like you people in india lived in horrible backward conditions so guys focus on Money thats why I wont like to hand with Folks who are here for School and settled later on. I told her Baby girl, Till I entered this country, My parent’s didn’t let me cook, wash or work like in states and they paid for school in full and I told her that I feel pity for her as she still has student loans 😊😊 her face colors changed
Is it just me or do u feel irritated too when u talk to someone about your baby and in response, they start taking about their pet...like it’s the same thing or havin a child is like havin a pet..cont
Do you think Biden will forgive any student debt? And how much do you think will be forgiven if so?
Anyone here who feels their in-laws staying with them are demanding too much attention of their spouse leading the couple to spend less time together and you feel your spouse is again being treated as a kid and you have no existence in the house with his parents.
Ladies, at what age did you move out and lived on your own/roommate? Turning 25 soon and I’ve lived with my parents my entire life (mostly forced to). I want to move out to a new city where no family lives to understand who I am in this world, but being first child of immigrant Indian parents (still believe women shouldn’t move till married 🙄). How do I bring it up without it turning into a big deal and possible ruining my relationship? Please share personal experiences if it helps. TIA!
Started on new project recently. Mgr from different workstream stops me in the lobby to ask if im pregnant. I'm not. He clarifies saying he confused me with someone. Now it's awkward in team meetings

How great would office emojis be in this app?
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...
If we had to use an car analogy for consulting firms McKinsey = Rolls Royce, BCG = Lamborghini, Bain = Ferrari, Deloitte = BMW, PwC = Mercedes, EY = Volvo, KPMG = Audi and Accenture = Acura ? Thoughts
What's is the typical starting salary for an entry-level/campus hire consultant for Big 3 Consulting firms? And for tier 2 consulting firms?
The Big 4 walk into a bar. McKinsey, Bain, and BCG arrived a few minutes earlier and are ordering drinks. The other firms are already there too, in various stages of intoxication. What happens next? Who does what? Bonus points: which firm is the jaded, apathetic bartender?
EY SC Tech Transformation. Told during HR screen that I'm looking for 135-145 but have space to negotiate. Given verbal offer and currently already getting background checked. HR calls me and says they can only do 110 with no sign on bonus? She even asked me if it's too low to continue. Is this even normal? NYC and 4 YOE. 2 in industry.
Watson scares me. Down with Watson.
Is there a distinction between Senior Associate and Senior Consultant at EY? I’m interviewing for a role in EY GPS Finance and not sure how much to ask for. I have 4 YOE
What would Trump say if he was a consultant?
What's the typical salary analysts who get promoted to consultant? I've heard a few figures and beginning to think they low balled me as a direct hire consultant
When you finally have enough status to get upgraded to first. This is the beginning of a beautiful thing.
