Can I hear from other big law associates working generally normal hours (45-50 hours a week). I feel guilty, so many people in this bowl seem to be working just insane hours that I’ve never met. I like my practice just fine because the work is reasonable. I’m a litigator in a niche group for context. Who else is lucky? Lol

I recently got hired as a new grad in Toronto. I was actually hired to backfill a role that was previously an Employee Experience Specialist, but have a different title because I'm handling employee experience AND some admin duties. The person in my role previously was being paid 70k. I got hired at 60k, which I asked for, but now I know how much they made, I feel like I should've asked for more bc I have more responsibilities. I just got hired, and I'm a new grad, so maybe it's fair? Thoughts?

Hi Fishes, I will be joining Capgemini, Gurgaon this October. I reside in East delhi. I have a couple of questions regarding the Cabs they provide.
1. How much time/ days does the transport team usually take to align cab for new resource?

Please tell. Thanks!

I recently got an offer for the Accenture senior strategy consultant development program. I was wondering if everyone gets the same base salary or if there’s room for negotiation? Also, they haven’t told me my start date, so I was wondering if people have gotten their start dates and when they might be? Any insight appreciated!!
How do I get the previous resident of my apartment to stop sending packages here? They sent multiple things here over the last year. At first I was nice and found her on social media and contacted her. Now apparently she sent a package here and she’s threatening to sue me bc she thinks i stole it.

Dollar cost average or invest all right away?
My paraplanner is wanting to get started with his CFP. It's been a while since anyone in my office has needed to go through a program. Looking for advice, what path should I suggest; Kaplan, Bryant University, Boston CFP, something else I don't know about? Looking for your ideas on what might be best to use as an educational source for the CFP these days?!? Thank you.

Merrill Advisors - I have a client with an account at Merrill and am told that they have a money fund available which insures up to an aggregate of $5,000,000 in FDIC coverage. Is this a CDARs program and they are misinformed or does such a program exist and what is it called? I was told $5mm in coverage with daily liquidity which obviously wouldn’t apply to CDARs. Many thanks!

What influenced your decision to hire an advisor with no industry experience? Seems like all firms only want to bring on advisors with an existing book. I’m considering my options to finally start selling so this is of interest to me
Investopedia was actually a great place to start, but you definitely need something else to supplement it.
Sorry, I probably should have started a new thread
CE 1 where are you located?
STC or Kaplan. Plan for a couple of weeks to a month.
CE 1 no worries. She runs marketing and client services now. She is a rockstar and I want to give her the opportunity for higher compensation. It also allows her to solicit. Plan is to have her grow her book slowly over time and transition client services at the same pace.
KEIR was great.
