If you have worked or currently work at Baker Tilly, what do you like and dislike about the firm? I’m currently interviews for a tax senior position that would be remote.
Baker Tilly people— my sister is a non traditional student with an in-office interview tomorrow in the Philly area. What sorts of questions can she expect? Also, they want to know what she (cont’d)
How can the Big 4 expect analysts to work so many hours for not much pay? $70k starting salary with no bonus potential working 12 hours per day when industry jobs pay slightly less and are 9-5?
Any of my fellow fishies head to their home state / get out of the city and work remote during all this craziness? If so, when do you think you’ll go back? I’m not keen on the prospect of heading back to the open office...
For those of you who have stayed with the same company which you started, when did you see the most significant salary bump? Why/how did it happen?
FL fish - any insight on Hill Ward Henderson culture? Specifically the construction & design group?
The hustle culture is killing me. Working until midnight everyday with no salary raise this year. Is it time to move? Just heard Deloitte people are getting raise this year.
Does strategy& hire people on h1b visa?
For those who went from B4 to Baker Tilly in Philadelphia or Lancaster, what are the pros and cons that you noticed? Specifically curious about hours, clients/teams and resources.
Any insight in to Publicis Health Media or working at Publicis in general? Would you work there over an omnicom / ipg agency if pay was significantly higher ?
Any fellow Hispanics/Latinos willing to discuss MBA application experience? Do you think you got a leg up/lower bar just for being H/L? Wondering whether I should consider this as a factor when picking target schools
EY- can vacation be taken in 4 hour increments? I want to take a half day one week because I need to leave out of town by 2p. Is that okay to charge 4 vaca and 4+ of other work?
I got sick this week at the client site and I’ve been camping at the hotel. I’ve got a nasty cough, should I wear a mask on the flight? I really don’t want to get anyone sick.
Is this the week I get laid off?
Trying out keto while on bench. Not too bad so far. Anyone had success keeping it up for the long term? While traveling?
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
Are sick days a thing anymore, or is it just working from home to not fall behind when you can't physically go to work? Asking from my bed.
I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
Curious, how many of you have a work teammate or family member sick with COVID-19? (I have none so far, knock wood, but an acquaintance or two.)
For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.
Hi All! I am a PM at Cap1. I’ve been managing projects for roughly 6 years off and on. I’ve been thinking about getting my PMP for several years, but have made it a goal this year. I get very overwhelmed with choosing who I should go with for my training course. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!!!
Have an offer from another company at 22% But heard from CC, SM, MD that I’m being considered for mid year promotion. Should I stall other offer? If so, when are mid-year promos usually announced?
Do you think your agency is gonna push up your return to office date (if you’re still wfh) because of the recent CDC guidance 🤔
Accenture 🐠, can you help explain the different roles and their typical seniority levels? - Client Account Lead - Client Group Lead - Market Unit Lead - Senior Client Executive I would expect a CAL manages an account relationship and report into a MUL, but I see there are a few aligned to geographies. Just trying to understand the organisation structure better. Thanks.
Has anyone here (especially BCGers) taken a leave of absence in the past? Have you described it in the application as an employment break? If not, how’ve you explained your promotion isn’t on time?
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
Anyone at PwC have a MBA from USC? If so are you being paid at par with the other MBA's at the firm?
Fishes help me figure out the best offer, please. Microsoft 63 vs FB E4 (but a role I'm more interested in). Microsoft is $180k, $185k/4 yrs, $25k sign-on. Facebook is $170k, $400k/4 yrs, $60k sign-on. I would have to move to SF from Redmond for the Facebook offer.
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)
There was this convo where a PML wanted to check with his counselee’s doctor if they are actually sick. I can’t seem to find it anymore. Can someone help me find it? I must read all of it. I can’t go to sleep without it.
Avanade signing bonus- offer says sign in bonus will be paid over a period of one year. Is this the norm?
Classmate of mine from a different B4 was asking for some advice on the best way to politely decline a suggestion/request from a client for them to apply for an open position with the client now that the project is finished. I’ve never had that come up before so was wondering if anyone has/how they handled it?
Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.
if leaving consulting for a low travel lifestyle which if any credit cards would you keep and why? for ex SPG, CSR, CSP, quicksilver, other hotel / airline cards
Is anyone getting promotions with or without a raise right now? What agency do you work at?
