Ex-PE Guy Launches a Briefcase Company - Ask Me...I've been on and involved with this site since its inception. It's been a sort of guide to me since I was a junior in college - it helped me break into banking and then PE.

Fun Things I Discovered While Perusing the...So, I've taken some time to peruse through WSO's 2013 Compensation Database, and it's honestly awesome. I've been on WSO for a while, from my time as a bright-eyed undergrad trying to break into a summer analyst gig, to my time as a jaded banking analyst, seeking out the greener pastures of private... 2 years 1 month

Is the Expedia Zip Line Ad the Most Annoying...I don't know how many of you have seen this ad Expedia is running, but I imagine that anyone who owns a TV has seen it multiple times.

I apologize to you guys who have been asking, I haven't been on WSO much (if at all) for the last 4 - 5 months due to some totally unrelated stuff that I've been dealing with. Anyway, look for an update in the coming days. I'll be looking for feedback from WSO on where... 7 months 3 hours

Good has already come out of this. It took a video, which is unfortunate, but it has. It's shined a light on the NFL's complacency towards this sort of... 10 months 3 weeks
TNA: My issue is with bias, plain and simple....[quote=TNA]My issue is with bias, plain and simple. This isn't a case of Ray rice coming home drunk and kicking his wife's ass because his cosi bread wasn't included in his order. Both parties were drunk, talking shit and assaulting each other. I think he's generally remorseful and going through... 10 months 3 weeks

I think you'd be calling for much worse to happen... 10 months 3 weeks
I think we can agree that the cop fucked up on...I think we can agree that the cop fucked up on the scene, big time. At best, he didn't see the footage and heard a story from Rice. At worst, he gave a pro athlete preferential treatment. And Rice wasn't banned from football, he's out for the year. And I think we all know that employers are... 10 months 3 weeks
Harsher penalties for domestic violence ARE the...Harsher penalties for domestic violence ARE the right move. Sometimes, or oftentimes, people don't do things because they are the "right thing to do," and need an extra push.

If you see something that visceral and don't want major changes enacted, I don't know what to tell you. Blame humanity for needing to actually SEE the violence in order to... 10 months 3 weeks
