I have been traveling for an engagement for 2 months. Finally about to roll off and catch a break when my schedule is changed to include a new engagement that will require 2 more months of travel.😠💩
Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.
How do we elect higher levels of group term life insurance? I’ve been trying to do this for years. I get the run around at each # I call... First baby on the way and I’d like to get this sorted STAT.
Just got promoted to manager. It’s done more to confirm that PA isn’t right for me long term. The fact that I’ll eventually need to sell services at some point (I really don’t like selling) in addition to how awful office politics can get (I’m just now getting a taste now that I have access to more meetings) makes me want out ASAP. Since I’m at a mid-tier/regional firm, I’m wondering what I can do to put myself in the best position to find a job in industry. Any insight would be appreciated.
Coming from Big Four, I have two offers to consider. One is for a small firm, manager role, $90k plus insurance covered. Would be pretty much on an island in my role. Other offer with Eide Bailly, lateral move, $77K, a little more than I would have made in previous position. Firm culture and structure, mentorship opportunities much better. Likely to be promoted up to $85K-$90K within a year. Is culture worth $16k? Any opinions from someone with Eide Bailly experience?

Feeling stuck in 4+ month job search. No current path for success or career growth at my current agency and ready to jump ship. Endless coffees and info interviews, but no open positions. What now?

Spg moments - just won an auction for a private dinner with Daniel Boulud at Daniel. 60k spg points for my wife and I. Too much? A steal?
How do you alter perception to look more "Managerial" in promotion year? Girl trying to make the transition to Manager.
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
If we did a scientific study on the impact of the quarantine, re: mental health outcomes (depression, suicide, domestic abuse, overdoses, etc), we need to take into account the improved outcomes....
When do you think the next biglaw associate base increase will be? Curious how long we'll stay at 190
Best credit card for travel? Looking at either the Amex or Chase option. Care most about points first, perks second but flexible. Is that Amex really worth it at that annual fee?
