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.
Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?
I have decided to leave my firm and would appreciate your input. If you work for a firm/company that empowers women and supports their growth to leadership positions, and has a decent culture, please drop the name to add to my target list. Thank you
Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!
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
In your experience, do any agencies foster a culture of mentorship? Meaning mentorship is encouraged, celebrated, and incentivized? So many have mentorship programs that go unused, but I’m curious if there are any agencies that bake it into their culture.

So, super weird question: Others often consider me the "smartest person in the room" but I love being challenged and called out when I'm wrong. Is this weird? Is there a term to describe this (other than obnoxious)? Asking here because for some reason in our culture it's super taboo to talk about how smart we are and we're all supposed to pretend we're less intelligent than we are too avoid looking arrogant or making others feel inferior.

I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
Hello fishes, I've offer from other company to join at 11.2 LPA. But TCS offered me a onsite travel for Mexico. I'm working as a system engineer there. I need some help in making a right decision. I don't know how much I'll be making at TCS Mexico and my family being living in India. Any suggestions will help immensely. Thanks

Bain folks - seen a number of job postings that appear to be non-traditional data related tracks: ‘Data Science’, ‘Pyxis’, ‘NPS Prism’, ‘Data Venture Specialist’.

Passed the DoorDash onsite for an S&O Manager role! The last round is an interview with a director. Anyone who’s gone through this previously? Anything I should know in terms of what to expect, how to best prepare, etc?
I had an interview with the CCO last Friday for a role and I thought it went well cause he said he was impressed by my work and we seemed to hit it off but I haven’t heard back yet and am starting to get a little nervous. Is it too soon to send a follow up? Or is it just an American thing to use superlatives when they’re really not all that impressed...
A few years ago I landed an interview at W+K to for their lead social role. I didn’t get it. The guy who did was just promoted to…ECD of W+K in Portland. I work at a third-rate digital agency reporting to our head of strategy in a big network making boring decks for boring clients.

How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Morning fishes!! I appreciate all the help everyone on here has given me. Though I have not landed a new gig phone screens and interviews are starting to come in after a few months of applying to places. Hopefully this is the month. 🤞
I tried cutting for the first time. I don’t recognize myself. I want to take short term disability to “fix” myself. Therapy isn’t enough. I don’t know how to do that. Has anyone done it? Any advice?
