PwC folks- my friend's undergrad new hire start date got pushed back. Does anyone know if PwC is planning on providing any compensation to people whose dates have been pushed back? (e.g. paying signing bonuses early / other stpiend)
Looking to create a tool we can use for stakeholder relationship tracking. We want to be able to hear a clients name, look them up in the tool, see info about their role and department, and see which of our consultants have worked with them before and on what projects. Trying to think of an easy to use, interactive tool beyond something like excel. What’s something you’ve used for this before? Don’t think we’ll be going as far as purchasing a license for a CRM software
How to best utilize your time when you’re on the bench? I have started some online learning, getting ready for CFA, exercising, cooking, reading books, but I still feel that I have plenty of unused time. And the routines are killing me too.

Deloitte Finance & Enterprise Performance...anyone know if this is the move to be positioned for a future VP/SM industry role in FP&A or Controllership? I.e. is it SOX, or strategic & digital finance?
If it’s hard to find projects in summer cause it’s slow, and Nov-Jan cause it’s slow, then am I supposed to spend half the year on the freaking bench!?
Any insight on Oscar Health?

Managers, Directors, and above, is the money worth the stress and workload? Do you find yourself not sleeping, working on the weekends, and working on vacation?
Officially working remote instead of client site. Top three things that came to mind: 1) more doggo cuddles at home 2) comfy clothes 3) shit, I’m gonna have to buy groceries 😂
DoorDash recruiter reached out for a role, proceeded to send me the analytical exercise a few days later. Prior to her sending me the exercise I realized I don’t want to go forward with the interview process as I’m too slammed with work at the moment. Can I just tell her that I no longer want to move forward? Will there be negative consequences?

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
Mic laid off its entire staff, sold the name to Bustle, and is relaunching with an entirely new staff. Read the union's statement on the fiasco.
I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Anyone else feel lost on how to exit this rat race? Burned out, feel totally stuck, and demands are only increasing 😔

Just got hit with a $550 fee for my corporate platinum AMEX membership when I paid $395 last year. Did anyone else have theirs spike up??
I work in Product, and I’ve been thinking about getting my MBA/MPP combo to transition into more tech for social impact roles. I would want to go to school full time so I can fully embrace the experience, but honestly I’m afraid that I’m going to lose my edge by being out of the industry for 3ish years. Any advice? Are my worries warranted?
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?
I understand we all come from different. Our communities are different and there are different needs. Given that, should there be minimum working conditions and minimum salary guidelines for the teaching profession?We’ve got standards we have to follow for the teaching profession. But we’ve got a hodgepodge of working conditions and salaries. What could possibly be a basic ask for this work?
Do all FAANG companies offer a joining bonus?
We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
Any fish out here that have transitioned from a staff attorney to an associate role? If you have, what was your path and what all did you do?
I was offered the Director of Engineering role at a startup my old boss is starting up. That is all! I’m super excited and don’t want to tell too many people yet so sharing here!
When it comes to compensation, do you care more about immediate rewards (e.g., next year's bonus) or your future earning potential?
How’s EYP compensation now after the meeting? I have 3 yoe and will they let me come in as a consultant or a senior associate?
Has anyone else in NY had an offer delayed? I was told by my EY recruiter that it would take some time to receive the verbal and written offer due to a new background check for NYC residents; I was told unofficially that the team liked me and wanted to move forward and we discussed comp and start date. I’m a little concerned something else is going on and my offer will go to someone else. Am I worrying too much? Thanks! EY
