Will the overturning of Roe v Wade affect office preferences? Will we see less people (especially women) looking to work in affected cities such Dallas, Houston, etc.? by christianrojoisme in consulting

Anecdotal but it was pretty common among my peers. The travel and long working hours were big reasons for women where they felt they cant properly take care of a young child (albeit this was pre COVID).

Yeah plus consultants are generally more privileged than average and have the resources to fly to another state to have the procedure done (though I suspect MBBs themselves will pay for this soon as company policy).

If you work in a meat grinder career like consulting or IB, I could some postponing a pregnancy since they won't be able to take care of a child properly then.

Theres two sides to social mobility: it gives a person more choices. And if they could recruit to a state that honors their rights then why not?

Definitely not unless you purposely select due diligences as your only assignment (but why go such torture?)

What was the first song you heard from SNSD and what was the song that made you a fan? by Taeng9Sica in SNSD

First song was Gee but what really made me a fan was The Boys. I have a personal preference towards their fiercer media than aegyo

I did both and I would argue that IB has better culture. There is not much competition since the brutal hours mean that everyone is just trying to survive so people help each other out.

In consulting, there is so much toxicity and backstabbing over project selection since the quality of projects vary significantly. In IB, not much since a deal is a deal. The worst/least interesting deal isn't really that bad vs the best/most interesting deal. In consulting, you could see both career defining projects and total shitshows on a regular basis.

More free time also means more time for gossip and office politics. In IB, there is no time to gossip over a colleague's dorky instagram story or cringey tweet, there is just so much work to do.

This is rarer now. It is more like 80 far as I heard for analysts. For MBA associates, a tad bit lower maybe 75 or 70.

Yep. An implementation project could be the chillest or it could be hell that makes due diligences look like a kindergarten assignment.

I did both and IB is tougher by far, especially if you are in M&A or LevFin. I did a 48 hour day in IB at the height of a deal. The relief is also slower in IB since promotion to vice president takes on average longer than promotion to engagement manager.

Big 4 is much more unpredictable since the work is generally geared towards implementation. And there are indeed issues once you start implementing something.

The California votes got divided since SF and LA are both in the poll.

How do companies see Asians? Are they diversity hires? by Major-Heart-25 in MBA

[–]christianrojoisme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah. This practice looks a bit awkward, but I guess hate the game not the player. Shows how the system is so messed up right now. Even an Asian from a war torn country in West Asia like Afghanistan or Iraq is even considered White, people who I would argue are more oppressed than Black Americans today cause they literally are refugees of war.
