Only one on this project for 6 months, looks like it’ll get extended again. Client printed me a nameplate and their kitchen staff (FAANG company) now know my breakfast order and have it ready. (cont.)
What are some best resources to pass CBAP certification? I have a month more to go to take up the exam and planning to buy watermark’s guide with sample Q&A..any feedback much appreciated...
Question: What incentive do consultants have to work more efficiently than coworkers since billing is done hourly, not by deliverable? A relevant hypothetical: 1. Consultant A can get task X done in 2 hours. 2. Consultant B can get task X done in 8 hours. 3. Let both A & B work an 8 hour work day. 4. In 8 hours, A can complete task X four times while B completes task X once. 5. Since consulting is billed hourly, both consultants get the same utilization and billable hours from the client.
You think they were construct better dining options in Term A at LGA, for the number of business travelers coming through with expense accounts... Give me more alcohol and better food 😑
Has anyone negotiated their raise at comp conversations in the past? I got very high ratings but I'm a staff so I know we basically all get the same raise. Is negotiating even an option for me?
Landed at ORD with zero unread. Thought this is Xmas morning and I'm still dreaming. Called IT and found out outlook server down. Ugh now what do I do? Chat with my cab driver? Ewwww
Okay.. I know this is a really shallow given all the things happening in the world but Do y’all think the airlines will extend our statuses to next year? I finally hit double-platinum 🥳 Delta and AA and we all got grounded 😞.. never got to take real advantage.
What is the biggest jump you've seen someone make straight after leaving big 4? I know a Senior 1 who jumped into a Sr. Tech Manager role at a large private firm. Made director after 2.5 years shortly
I need a mental health day badly. I am struggling to keep up with life, and I feel depressed. I don't feel I can ask for this on my project. Wtf do I do?
Used to work as an AE at Yelp. Got laid off. What do you think the areas of opportunity are right now in the world of sales? Still a good time to be in tech?
Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background
Is it worth doing an exec MBA at a top school? Considering INSEAD, LBS, or Kellogg. Currently a Director at a bank with TC of 250K$. 6 years of consulting experience at EY + 2 at this bank
How do you plan to leave the firm? If I have an offer that wants me to start Dec 16, when would you put your two weeks in and when would you let current project know? Would they let me go early?
Why do people work at a crowded hotel bar with laptop and a bunch of notepads👨🏼💻? Cannot figure out the motivation behind it🤧.
Reached out to an ex and he responded. We’ve ‘light’ texting once a month, combo of him reaching out or me. He’s married and wife is pregs (didn’t know either when I reached out). What does it mean?
Moving from big 4 tech implementation to boutique strategy firm for huge comp increase. Long term goal is mbb. Would this move help or hurt mba admissions and mbb recruitment?
Is it okay to initiate an informal phone call with a private client contact about potentially applying for a position they’ve posted? And then if there is mutual interest, go to audit partner after?
Employer is mandating us come in. I’ve been here a few months and the firm has not given me health insurance yet. If i get sick I can’t even go to a doctor
Just wondering if anyone has been ghosted or treated poorly by VML Detroit in the interview process lately?
Pregnant wife just returned from A meditation retreat and is craving Indian food. Any recommendations for decent/ authentic places in Dallas/ Irving area?
Has anyone switched to a standing desk? Do you feel more productive? Was it worth it? Did you switch at the office or at your home?
I don’t know what to go into. I’m a May 2019 graduate and I work as a bookkeeper and payroll manager for 2+ years. I want to go into big 4 or maybe rsm/gt. But don’t know what field. Tax isn’t my favorite and I don’t want to travel for audit. Any input on what I should do? And should i apply as an intern?
How old of a job posting date before I can assume it's stale/been filled already? 3 weeks, longer, shorter?
Similar to the post yesterday... suggest a brunch spot near Union Sq. hopefully somewhere that isn’t usually too packed as not sure on time so hoping to not need a reservation!
