After seeing a number of posts about assigning work to staff & providing clear instructions, should it be done verbally v written, note-taking abilities of staff, etc., has anybody thought about recording a call or video for this? I feel like this could be very helpful, especially if there's screensharing with the WP in question open and navigated (obvs close out chats, disable notifications, etc.). Immediate & future benefits. Also, recordings could be used to send to off-shore teams as well.
So I’m excited I have three pretty solid options 1. Being a trust tax manager at a bank ( I’ve done banking/trust world before) 2. Contract to hire at a private equity firm 3. Staff accountant role at a healthcare company. Thoughts on these options?
Not sure if this has been discussed before, but what kind of health benefits do your firms offer? I’m at a small firm (<10 attorneys) and the firm covers all health insurance premiums for staff and associates (including spouse and family plans) and also covers half of our deductibles. We also get a fitness reimbursement up to $200 per month. Are those benefits standard across the industry?
Does consulting leadership see an existential talent “crisis” of sorts coming from covid? No travel has benefits, but we’ve never had so much churn before at the lower staff levels. No travel, points, and comped meals is basically associate payments that are no longer being paid out.
Anyone know if IPG as a network still grandfathers in time spent on staff at other IPG-owned agencies towards certain benefits, such as vesting in the 401(k) plan or vacation time?
How is your medical system deciding how to vaccinate healthcare providers, nurse and ancillary staff for Covid 19? Ours seems to be worried about optics and prioritizing is unclear to many of us who completed the attestation and willing to get vaccinated.

Does anyone have any info about the program for very long-tenured IFS staff, where the firm will pay for your health insurance after you retire if you meet certain tenure requirements?

Was let go as a staff 2 at 77k in September and currently have 3 offers in deciding between them. Would really appreciate any feedback. 1. 3rd year associate at PWC -HIA at 85k. 2. Transformation analyst at a big 3 automaker 83.5k 10% bonus. 3. Product development role at a healthcare startup. 100k 7.5k sign on and 7.5k bonus in 3 months. Potential 20% bonus at year end.
Just curious. What are everybody’s pension benefits out there? PwCs are fairly dismal for employees. 25% 401(k) match on first 6% deferred. Then a non elective contribution that varies by staff level. 3% for associates. 4% seniors. 5% for managers. 6% directors and then I think 8% for partners. What does everyone else get?
I applied for a job and received an offer from my client. 15k+ bump in salary, better benefits/remote work, and responsibilities will give me exposure to all areas of the organization (start up). The problem is that they’re looking to staff me as a Senior when I’m currently a Manager at DT. They said they’re flexible on title, but curious to hear how others have navigated similar situations. I would report directly to the controller and have 1-2 staff reporting to me...
Currently at one of the big tech firms. Been here for less than 2 years, enjoy it for the most part. Very comfortable as well with amazing benefits, decent WLB, and not bad pay. Would you leave this role for a 80% raise for a startup Chief of Staff role? Would go from around $140-160K TC to $250K but not sure if the instability, more hours, more limited career growth is worth it. (4 YOE out of UG)

Tell me if I’m missing something here. In consulting, you sign up to work yourself to the bone for 15ish years at well below market pay for the chance of making partner where you will still be somewhat below market for another 10 years working yourself to the bone for the chance at maybe being a senior partner for 10 years making decent money while still working insane hours all while paying for your boss’s salary and pension and their retired boss’s pension. What about this is appealing again?

Any nice perks and benefits? Thank you!
