Any chance of getting into M7 MBA directly from mid-tier FDD? I did 2 years in big 4 audit (including promotion) before making the transfer. End goal is IB.

EY folks: what's a normal/expected raise for a 1st yr TS M moving to 2nd yr. also when are the round tables?
I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)
6.2% raise - rated 2 and promoted from C to SC... how would anyone be satisfied with that and the increased responsibilities that come with it? Time to be listen to those LinkedIn recruiters

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?
Senior Managers and Partners: What would you think of a manager that performs well by all measures (though doesn’t necessarily exceed all expectations, but smokes weed just about every night to unwind? Would it be an issue when it comes to deciding on a promotion?
New to options trading, been following this bowl a while and trying to get educated with courses on options alpha and TD Ameritrade. How many of yall are able to make consistent extra income from options trading? I’m not expecting BC wins but was hoping after some practice for a little side income to make the no raise year a little less painful. Just wondering if it’s more of a gamble then anything except for the exceptional few...
There's a lot of backstory to this but I can only type so much SO I've been with my company for 10.5 hours and just found out they've increased their base pay for starting employees $3-5/hr. I have received my annual 3-4% raises, only because I always make sure to ask for it, but nothing more. They didn't even acknowledge my 10 year anniversary with the company and it's a pretty small company (less than 100 employees). I feel I should get a $3-5/hr raise since the base pay was raised. Thoughts?
I got an offer from a PE ops team I’m content with. Should I still negotiate? Does this mean there is still more room to raise the offer given this is their first offer?
Currently an OCM Associate with 2.5 YOE in consulting & 1 YOE experience in sales and going up for promotion to SA in May/June. Received a Senior Consultant offer from Cognizant that puts TC about 35-40% higher than current TC. Has anyone worked in the OCM practice at Cognizant / have any thoughts about growth, current TC vs offer, etc?
I am expecting a promotion this year from C to SC. Should I wait to hear back on the news before I initiate my roll off from the current long term project that I've spent 1.5 years on? Dyingggggg

How big is the jump from xDR to AE? Currently crushing quota finishing my 1st year as BDR in enterprise software (12mo+ cycles with avg deal $500k) Want to make the business case for promotion before end of 2nd year. I was a management consultant before and feel confident interacting with senior level DM’s but would be fresh to outside sales, negotiation, closing prospects, etc. How can I prepare for the jump and set myself up for success as an AE?
Considering exiting my first consulting team for a lateral into a smaller firm/practice (boutique to boutique): same work, same city, +20% raise. What were some of the questions that helped get others off the fence when considering making the first jump? Love both teams, long-term trajectory is very similar - but, it seems like I simply have to jump to get an add-on raise. Appreciate any insight folks have.
Would you start traveling again if it meant getting off the bench? Haven’t left my house in over a month but now I’m interviewing for a client across the country. My wife at home is pregnant.
Is it really that hard for managers to book their own conference rooms and send out invites? The time it takes to ask one to do it could it not have just been done by themselves?
Hired as an undergrad. Moving up quickly (should be manager this year). What benefits would I get out of doing an MBA?
How do LMM/MM/UMM firms in Europe (London & EU) differ from NA in terms of WLB? Know it will vary by fund and city but would be curious for some data points - have anecdotally heard of fewer full sprint weekends, fewer 3/4 am nights, and more protected vacation. Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?
2ys in a relationship and both got promoted to Manager in the same field from different B4. I'm finding it difficult to hide stuff like Biz dev activities from her. How do you guys deal with it?
By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
As social distancing continues and busy season approaches us, anyone interested in doing a virtual accountability group? I’ll have a excel google doc we share minutes exercised, record productivity, health eating ect then every other week we do a virtual happy hour 🍻?

Is it true that you can only upgrade domestic on AA by using 500 mike upgrades? If you don’t have them you can buy them at $80 per? I’ve been delta platinum and now AA. This is insane..

What are your thoughts on face shields in the classroom? Student sings and yells so aerosols are not contained. I was told my safety doesn’t matter.
Hello! I was promoted to a TA Ops Specialist and previously was a Recruiting Coordinator for two years. I found a passion for the systems/process side of HR and am eager and excited to continue this path. For anyone on this side of HR, I’d love to hear any career advice you have for pursuing HRIS/Talent Operations. Are there any hot HR systems you think someone should have under their belt? What is your current title/YOE/location/pay? Thanks!
I joined a new firm half way thru the year. Quinn Emanuel. Do I get a full bonus? Or am I screwed for not negotiating that when I joined?
What fun things you would do if you are on bench and know that you're starting engagement next week?
Which one to choose between ofss and Capgemini. Looking mainly on WLB. seniour consultant role in both the companies. And salary not much difference.
Looking for advice: does part time MBA opens the same doors as full time? I work in DC area and on a visa. Don't think I can work full time and study full time as well. Thinking of applying next year, but let's see.
Have an offer on the table at a startup that’s $35K more than current big 4 salary for a Senior Manager role. Benefits package is very comparable (401k match, healthcare costs, fringe stipends for WFH). Startup has been around for 5+ years and has secured a solid, 9 figures of investor dollars. Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?
Zoom Wrapped: You had 1,689 Zoom meetings this year. You were camera off for 754 of those meetings. You were mic off for 954 of those meetings. You dozed off in 267 of your meetings. You used 58 different backgrounds. You waved “bye” way too many times before signing off. You did 1 cringy “hang loose” before signing off and should just plain feel ashamed of yourself for that.
