Thoughts on Barnes & Thornburg? I'm coming from biglaw and they look intriguing. Is there more work balance ?
Barnes & Thornburg
What is salary range for experienced Tax MD from Big 4 at mid-tier firm like BDO? Anyone made the move? Regrets? Recommendations? advice for offer negotiations?
Which books would you recommend to a product counel for tech startup about strategy, management, and leadership?
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
What's the harshest thing your Buyer has ever said to you? Ex: Buyer emailed my colleague "instead of sharing photos of our empty shelves why don't you spend your time getting us more product"
What training or guidance are you giving managers at your firms about managing hybrid teams? There is a lot out there on remote teams, but a lot of us are going back three days a week which means people at home and people in the room. Any tips to pass on?
Anyone feeling guilty for being busy with work when friends are being laid off ? I am, but at the same time I’m wishing things would slow down. I want to help people but instead I’m just billing...
Is it normal/fine to confirm with a partner the language in a paragraph in a document prior to sending out to a client if you are not 100% sure it is correct? I’m in capital markets and securities and often times am unsure of what to include/how to word, particularly for private offerings. The answer seems to be obvious (yes) but I am a year and a half into traditional practice with prior adjacent experience and don’t want to be seen as not confident or that I am not progressing.
Anyone here a member of Revenue Collective? Is it worth it? What kind of value have you gotten out of it if so? Thanks!
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
So, my boss just told me that all lives matter. Let me know if you hear about any executive HR openings, I have 16 years of global HR experience.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Hi! For the folks who have recently took the SHRM-CP exam this year, how would you describe the test and any tips you can provide would be helpful!
What’s the most petty thing you’ve seen a firm do to an attorney who is lateraling out? Mine just revoked my renewal paperwork and payment for 2021-22 bar dues, even though they’ve already submitted it I’ll still be an employee when they’re due (7/1). Money’s not the issue. They can dock the $400 from my final check for all I care. The administrative hassle is the petty part, and it’s so inconsequential that it genuinely made me chuckle. I don’t even blame them. Kinda respect the hustle tbh.
How do you continue with work as usual when it seems like the rest of your life is falling apart? I feel like I’m spiraling and just want to quit everything and drive somewhere far away to start over. I have a call with a partner soon and not sure if my usually good at faking enthusiasm self will be able to pull through on this one.
I’m looking for a screening tool that will assess a candidate’s proficiency with MS-Teams. Would anyone know if there is such a thing that exists?
Does anyone have a dashboard or excel template for turnover/attrition where data can be easily “dumped” in for a beautiful display? TIA!
When a law firm is looking for a 33/34 act attorney does it need an one working primarily with public companies? Or private companies as well? I’m a corporate and securities attorney, all my clients are private EGC and PE/ VC/ hedge funds, I usually ensure that they are exempted from 33/34 acts
So other than money (which is obviously very important) what’s the incentive to make partner? Is it crazy that I just want to do my work and go home to my amazing family without the added pressure of running a business and managing others? I’m only a third year (in a new practice area) so maybe the thought of being competent enough to ever be a partner just seems unrealistic. 🤷🏼♀️
Any insight to PwC tuition reimbursement?
Hey Googlers! Considering making a move and am in the interview process with PSO. Role is great but I’m concerned I’ll be asked to give up remote work. Ok with partial travel to clients but I do not want to go into the office to work more than 1-2x per month. How flexible is Google with this?
I just graduated with an MBA degree and my concentration is in healthcare leadership and management. Am GPA is 3.5. My undergrad was in Dental surgery (BDS) and I completed my degree from India. I haven’t been able to land a job or even a call back and my rejection pile is really high. How do I refine by job search ? What department or job title could potentially hire career transitioned? Or what can I do to improve my profile? Any suggestions will be appreciated
Any good dog sitter recs for Greenpoint/Williamsburg? Have a 6yo lab that is playful and great with humans, but not very dog-friendly (therefore can’t be kenneled). We’ll be traveling a fair bit over the next 3-6 months and need someone to stop by in the morning and evening when we’re out of town. We had a pretty bad Rover/Wag experience, so would prefer to go with someone more professional.
Oh man. Client doesn't want to shell out for an analyst. Who the heck is going to take notes on workshops and make sure we capture all the requirements? Whose going to support locally when I fly out?!
Is the BCG Knowledge team equivalent to Offshore consulting / GBS teams or is it a back-end Knowledge team. Employees seem to suggest that they do consulting work as well. This team has sectoral specializations unlike the flagship model. Unbiased insights? I am currently in Big4 consulting and want to break into MBB. I also know switching tracks does not happen since I had an offer from McK Implementation and turned it down after speaking with many employees there. Also, the track is super slow.
Anyone familiar with MD+MBA programs? Left PwC for specialty firm, realizing I love life sciences and I have read medical publications for fun even in college. Likewise I love business
For those firms who get a yearly health / fitness reimbursement : what do you use yours on? Already did gym membership and fitness tracker - trying to figure out what else to use..
Has anyone done soft landing in Canada from US during this time? Even though IRCC says it's not allowed in covid times, I've seen ppl saying it multiple forums they've done it. If someone does it, do you think they'd create issues with your PR when finally going back to Canada at a later date?
anyone relocated during covid? Hubby and I are considering a move to be near family but not sure what options to weigh - we could both keep our jobs + move. No brainer? Would be east coast to midwest
Anyone have any good psychology book recommendations? I’m trying to learn more about myself and find psychology interesting.
Recently met this guy and he cancelled on our plans on Saturday at the time of meetup bc of his “work calls”, I tell him I feel disrespected of my time etc. and he says sorry he’s always on call so it’s difficult to schedule plans…I haven’t replied to him and was hoping he would text again but nothing, any advice ladies (why is there still a part of me that wants to see him still)
We want diversity for all creative work and a dynamic culture. But our clients demand we staff for specific multi cultural briefs. I hate having to approach diverse talent this way. Thoughts on how?
Five deals closing in the next seven business days and none are remotely close to being ready to close.
