Coming back to D in October after LOA. During that LOA, I was approached by other firms, and received 3 offers. I do want to stay at D but if they cant match the offers I received, I will leave (offers include 30% increase and a promotion). How should I go about this? Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?
Any insight in FDD S1 salary at big 4 in NY?
If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?
Has anyone negotiated a pay raise after completing a PT MBA? Doing the same thing since pre-MBA and see no change in near future. Leaders in Advisory say they are looking for more MBAs though.
People accepted counter offer and got higher pay and raise again. Should I also do this? Is it ethical? I’m in tax NYC office.
Is implementation work so different from strat? I worked in multiple projects where the client was ex-MBB and they had no clue on how the implementation works.
Tech - what was the % raise for each rating?
Team member gave her three week notice. I will likely have to pick up majority of her work for the foreseeable future (which is very different from my assigned work). My company is on a hiring freeze and reduced salaries. Sooo do y’all think it hopeless to ask for some sort of raise or bonus of some kind?
what have you to say about taking 1-2 week break before starting in a new company? I can’t pass the thought of the opportunity cost ( losing a half month salary)

Started at my firm 4 months ago, and just found out my SO got a promotion that would require us to move across the country (we’re not married). Advice for asking to be transferred/go remote? Cont.
It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career. Things like self-promotion to the right people, being highly confident in my abilities (rather than focusing on risks and mitigations), and just naturally walking into every room like I belong. I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?
Is a breakaway from Tech consulting to economic development possible? What are your stories or stories you’ve heard? Thanks for all advice/opinion. 2 years in after college with recent promotion

I’d love to gauge my salary range with other women here. Currently at 62k as a Junior AD. Been at my company for 4 years. I’m pushing for a promotion with an increase to 75-80k. I’m comfortable asking and have substantial supporting data, is this on par or should I aim higher?
If you come on at Morgan Stanley and fail the series 7 and get fired, can you apply to other locations after a certain amount of time goes on, or will they never allow you to get back on with them?
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.

We have a leader who likes to use casual rap slang (he’s a white male) to be funny. Nothing overtly offensive or derafatory, just like “word” or other things...just occasionally...though while speaking internally. I heard a couple complaints that it’s not sensitive (from people who are not of bipoc) - thoughts? Does this need a talk?

Any good 'girly' shows to watch on Netflix, Hulu, any streaming platform? I'm so sick of starting to watch a show just to realize the series sucks and then have to search through and try again. I know this is not the worst problem to have, but I'm very bored and depressed during covid and a good show would really help. Thanks in advance!
Leave a secure but underpaid, full time, toxic af job or go freelance and get the title bump at and indie agency? Healthcare etc scares the $hit out of me
Any EY PAS folks who can assist with a referral?
Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
About to start a new job but have a pre-planned 2.5 week vacation for end on September. Feeling a bit uneasy about taking such a long break so early into a new position.... will they think I’m lazy and immediately get a red flag? I know it’s long but I haven’t taken vaca all year!
When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money
Question: what are the chances to get re-hired after a year if you leave your job for 1 year to move to a different country to take care of your spouse who is having mental health problems? My husband works abroad and with the travel ban he is unable to come to UK. He needs me over there but my company doesn’t have an office in his country with roles open. And I’m not fluent in the local language.
