Want to learn lawn tennis. Any recommendations for good tennis lessons in NYC (preferably close to East Village)
Does anyone here do dropshipping? I want to start and I’m looking for some direction on how to do so. If anyone has experience doing this, I’d appreciate some advice/lessons you learned along the way!
Advice wanted: My firm lied about our raises this year. They said we’d match the other top 10 firms, and that was absolute BS. I’m having a hard time staying motivated. I’m doing senior level work without the title or pay. Fresh college grads are getting paid more than me. I’m already job searching, but I feel bad that I don’t have the same drive as I did before when I thought I would be receiving a proper raise. I learned my lesson. Any advice for a young professional?
Has anyone taken virtual language (Spanish) lessons this year? I'm intermediate advanced (B2) after letting my Spanish get rusty. I need structure to relearn some of the grammar and I need to practice speaking consistently. I'm thinking an hour 2x a week would be a good balance (with homework).
I report to a VP who also handles HR. I am working on building FCPA policies and a compliance program. Today she told me she needs to check with an outside attorney to see if CA law will cause issues for us. . . I just need to vent. I’m trying to figure out why is she paying me, but then again I totally shouldn’t care!! I’ve learned my lesson. Don’t report to someone with no legal background.
Hot take: resumes don’t need to be perfect—they just have to be “good enough.” 🔗 in comments for the resume I used to get out of consulting to join a start-up, in addition to the resume tips and tricks (and lessons learned) I found to be most helpful.
We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
You just finished teaching a skill / topic in your lesson. Children are now off to work on that skill independently: who are you targeting first to support, your students in the red or your students in the yellow?
The only positive thing I’m getting from this hell market is a lot of lessons learned (very very painful lessons, entered the market for the first time around late dec/early jan in segments).
Are you finding it easy or challenging to translate your "in person" lessons to an online format?
Has any one ventured into importing and selling on amazon or any other platform? Looking for lessons learnt, marketing tips, other looks outs
First time home buyer here. Anyone know if it’s worth buying a new home direct from a developer? Or should I use a realtor to find lived-in/older properties from the owner? Anything I need to watch out for or lessons learned you can share with me? Ty!!
Has anyone filed a police report with LA county that have video evidence and the faces of the criminals? Any lessons learned? I recently got my bike stolen and I want to make sure the footage I have gets seen by an officer.
What's your favorite lesson you've ever taught?
I need a deck on House of Cards' lessons learned on how to apply the Underwood's strategies and scheming in consulting.
Anyone here ever worked with a vocal coach? I need recommendations for a lesson or two before auditioning for a pseudo professional chorus group...
How long did it take you all to reach the 6 figure salary? I know it varies depending on where you're located but im curious where you started and where you are now
Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?
Anyone flying out of EWR? How is the security check? I am running late and will reach 30 mins before my flight. ;(
What is average utilization % in Alvarez & Marsal PEPI for a manager in a typical (non-COVID) year
Comp question - what should a B4 Senior with a CPA, CFF, CFE, and a MBA with 4 years forensic exp (D&T) and 6+ years non-forensic exp (industry) in NYC and DC markets expect in this current climate?
What’s the typical job scope for a junior and how do you bring up asking for a promotion politely? I feel like I’ve been working above my role for quite awhile now and with little oversight from CDs, sometimes taking over for them when they’re out. I’m the only junior on the team and there are no mids/seniors.
I don't know about other Big 4's. But, - EY saved on earned leaves by directing no carry over - EY saved on virtual counselling sessions, virtual new promotions program and other virtual events - EY saved in electricity, water and other office consumable services - EY earned extra from Salary cuts - EY supplied zero WFH essentials - EY garnered extra profits and broke last year records So where the hell are the employee monetary profits? Feels like EY is mimicking PM cares fund. #PeanutBonus
Any good websites with promotion on Aeron Chairs
What’s the minimum annual base salary needed to justify a $2.5k 1b1b apartment in NYC? 100k, 120k, or 150k?
Is it good to move to Netherlands from Chennai leaving 25LPA job here on top of wife’s 10LPA job for 54000 euros post tax salary?
have an offer at a boutique consulting firm for a Director position with a 30% hike. i’m not sure if the non brand name will affect in the long run. from big 4 i’ve been able to get MBB interviews (which i wasn’t able convert) but will the boutique firm basically preclude me from top tier consulting offers? the boutique consulting firm usually does long term implementation projects and fewer core strategy projects but is the hike in pay and position worth it? anyone gone through a similar path?
Thinking of moving from mid tier (BDO/GT/RSM) to big 4. Is it worthwhile? Anyone else done this and have experience to share?
Does anyone know the average salary for a senior 1 in the fso advisory practise in EY ? How does it compare to deloitte, pwc?
Hi fishes, i joined USI 2 years back in EA ( global finance, data analytics) at 5.6 , got a 15% hike this year means i bearly beat the two year inflation and now take around 6.8 . At 4.5 years of experience i feel my ctc is quiet low and i do not have any hopes of corrections that are due in dec. What are my options guys, manager says my salary is already very high for an analyst.
New manager in South Africa. My CTC is equivalent to about $45k. Is that on par with the rest of the world? Could I expect that type of salary if I were to immigrate to the US or Europe?
Have two offers and unsure which to take. Ex Big 4 and have done software startups since. Option 1: Director role back in Big 4. Good package. Good fit with my area of expertise, focusing on tech solutions and partnering with startups. Working across all industries and clients. Option 2: Big Tech/GAFAM (level = L6 google/e6 FB/65 Microsoft, which I’m told is Director equivalent) Even better package. Account Technology Strategist. Less client diversity but using breadth of their tech.
For my FAs who are also CPAs (or anyone who knows I guess 😊) - do you know if there is a way to simultaneously get your CPE for the CPA while also preparing for the CFP? Continued in comments...
How do promotions work at Google? Do you get a new equity grant once promoted (on top of usual refreshers)? Or is it just a base increase and possibly a target bonus % increase?
I am working for 12-14 hours a day in a non client facing role at one of the big 4. What are some of the exit opportunities I can think of in the next 1-2 years? I want to have a 9-6 job with decent pay.
