Private Equity and the Buy Side

Would it be worth exiting consulting to build up the finance team at a mid-market PE firm? Ultimately would pivot to deal side after a while, just curious on thoughts

Just reading up on the new X1 credit card and honestly both relieved and flabbergasted it took us this long to get here. There are some things I’m kinda unsure about but over all it seems like it will really help. Love it. Just signed up but the waitlist is already running long *sigh* even with a code..

Dress code for the office holiday party is “Festive holiday” attire. What on earth is that supposed to mean?

For moms that did NIPT, did you also end up doing CVS, and/or amniocentesis? Were all of the results consistent? For context, we just had our 8 week ultrasound and I thought hearing the heartbeat would help me finally stop freaking out about baby being okay, but turns out I have just graduated to a whole new host of worries about what else could be wrong.

Do people consider their relative advantage when accepting a position at a consulting firm? For example if you knew you would be average at MBB and a rockstar at big4 would that change your calculus?

I’m 23 years old, so this is the second election in which I’m old enough to vote. All 3 candidates that I’ve had the chance to support have been utter scumbags, terrible people who the majority of Americans find despicable and/or inept. Maybe I’m biased because of my small sample size (2 elections) but isn’t this an obvious sign that something major needs to change? I look at other countries who are led by genuine, trustworthy leaders and don’t understand why we aren’t having this conversation.

There needs to be an easier way to communicate to your boss that you just wanna chill in your current spot for a bit. I am not interested in "advancing" into $20k/year more and trading endless nights and weekends for the sake of new biz. Let me just hang out with my family and get my job done at 5.

Advice needed: Ideal budget is around £5k but flexible-ish upwards or downwards (I wouldn’t rule out a 3k Tudor for example just because my top budget is higher, but let’s say Explorer territory is where I’d be okay to land) My dream watch is the VC Overseas (found some used ones at 7k-ish), and was wondering if anyone had some good alternatives that might be a bit cheaper? Both new and used

Husband just got his semen analysis results back and it doesn’t look great. Has anyone dealt with this before? I let him have some alone time yesterday and he has a man date with a buddy today, so hoping that cheers him up a bit, but he seems to be taking it really hard. I miscarried in July and I think he is blaming himself for everything when it’s really no ones fault.
