My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?

I have been in consultant at a pretty well known and respected firm for the last 4 months. I am recent college graduate and like my company, but don't love my comp. When do recruiters start trying to poach? how often will firms cave to opposing offers instead of letting their junior associates go? as in, do firms really negotiate salary if I come to them with another offer? Or will they just be pissed off

Moving from a boutique (<30 employees, MBB competitor) to the strategy practice of a Big 4. Have only worked for boutiques in the past, so I’m expecting there to be some major differences in terms of working style. What are the major differences and ‘watch outs’ you would point out to me? Could be anything from culture, to red tape, to compliance etc.

Ladies, as we get our Black Friday deals this week, I hope you check out givebackbox.com— they ask you to reuse shipping boxes to donate clothes/other goods, and give you free shipping labels. I’m lucky to have what I have, as many of us are. During the holidays, I try to donate clothes so that they have a second life. I used to bring bags of donated clothes to Goodwill but given covid, Give Back Box’s free pickup is probably better. Hope you join force!
