Hello folks, I am new to fishbowl and recently got an offer from Publicis Sapient for a senior associate. They are offering $136k with unlimited pto benefits. As I am from the industry and haven't heard about this company before, I would like some comments or thoughts about working for this company? How do they invest in their employees (like pay raise, promotions, etc)?
Do we need to use a Personal/Vacation day when getting a new computer at EY? Thanks in advance!!
Random - Does anyone want a custom laser engraved cutting board, charcuterie board, or Yeti Mug made for a holiday gift or for yourself? I can do it for $39 plus shipping. I’m looking to take pictures of sample work products to start an Etsy shop but need a customer first to even start 🙈 DM for more info!
When traveling for vacation, I often dread telling friends that I’m in town if I’m visiting their city. I don’t want to plan… or have the plan-making process hang over the entire trip.
My spouse is preparing herself mentally for corporate job and thinking of learning Manual Software Testing.She’s very soft spoken and commerce graduate but No work experience in late 30’s.Do you feel it can be a good move specially working remotely/WFH?Any advice or similar experiences? Thanks ,
Stay at Deloitte as an M and try for SM promotion in 2023 or try to level up now at another firm? Current base is $185K with 12 YOE. M&A IT. I know M to SM moves across firms are tough. Assuming I can make the transition for argument’s sake, should I invest my free time in the holiday season into making the transition? Reasons for moving: Cut down M to SM timeline by a year or two, potentially increase my pay from $185K to the mid $200s.
I have a disability and I’m getting flack for taking time off when I need to see the doctor to keep it under control so I don’t get really sick. Is there anything I can do to change this?
I have 244 hours of PTO and plan to hand my notice in shortly. Will I be paid out for 30 days of work?!
What is the best way to book vacation (ideally bundles - flights, accommodation etc.) for Maldives?
Is time off/vacation and sick time negotiable with WPP? Specifically Ogilvy NY prior to accepting an offer? Heard it’s only 10 days of PTO. That’s crazy 🥴
Need some advice. I live in an apartment building and still work from home for the most part. My upstairs neighbors are incredibly loud when they walk around. Their footsteps woke me up out of a dead sleep at 6am this morning (and I was wearing ear plugs). Can I ask them to walk more quietly, or do I need to just deal with it?
Anyone have anything positive to say about unlimited PTO? Have you taken more than 3-4 weeks since the shift?
I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.
Who else is wfh today 😏 #ConsultingFridays >>>>
Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
Is Persistent systems good in terms of WLB, Job security, hikes etc. Also... any idea as to how long they can give WFH? YOE-7.5 yrs Profile- QA Automation Tester

Fiancé and I booked a flight on the same reservation, Delta split us up so we both had middle seats 3 rows apart. Gate agent refused to even try to switch us back I’m platinum, he’s silver. Points?
How hard would it be (if even possible) to switch from Big 4 Deal Advisory to MBB? Just started a few months ago and can tell this is not for me long term.
How do you all keep up with your mental health in this industry? I’m feeling emotionally drained, stressed and lots of social anxiety. So much that I don’t want to do anything but sleep on weekend

I have a friend who is a VP at Goldman Sachs, 10 years exp, looking to transition out because of WLB. What level would he be in Big 4 Financial Services consulting? His specialty is structured credit / derivatives.
Happy to have just received my promotion to senior manager after a very challenging year, backed by an even more challenging year prior. I've got my own beliefs what a senior manager does, or should do. I'm keen to hear transition challenges others have gone through when becoming a senior manager.
PwC SDC Bangalore HRs are verbally promising permanent work From Home/Anywhere. Do you think it's going to be like that or they will call to office in coming months ? It's just a trick to attract candidates.
Been following Instagram accounts like Big Little Feelings. Have the strategies they shared worked for you? I’m struggling with feeling like they’re making me feel canned/robotic with my kid.
How much should I spend on a wedding gift for a zoom wedding? It’s for a close cousin so I still want to get her something.
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
Do the other Big 4 firms have roles similar to PwC’s COE - dedicated service centers that support multiple Core engagement teams, while focusing on specific business processes?
