Anyone from Avanade here? Negotiating an offer with them and want some insights into their work culture/benefits/progression.
Thoughts on DDB Chicago’s culture? What kind of traditions, events or culture and inclusion initiatives does the agency have?
Hi there! Looking for recommendations for things to do/see/eat in Gatlinburg, TN. I’ll be there for about a week (working remote for 4 hours in the morning M-Th and Friday and weekend off). We love to eat, hike, sight see, etc. I’m a huge adrenaline junkie as well. Also any dog friendly things to do would be super helpful. Thanks in advance!!
Anybody from Klick! Or KlickHealth? Have a goal of getting into account management there. What’s the culture there? Is it worthy of aspiration?
Fairly confident I’ll get an in industry offer this week! Mixed feelings though... Main reason for leaving is WFH consulting just simply isn’t enjoyable. Getting harder for me to see the value in grinding for consulting. Is this short term thinking off? Do people think weathering this storm will give potential raises / promotions soon? I just don’t see consulting going back to what it use to be for ~2 years. I’m a consultant level going for promotion to manager.
Considering buying one of those «sit/stand desk converters». Any recommendations? https://www.vivo-us.com/collections/manual-desk-risers/products/desk-v000k Is it too late, or do we think WFH will last for a long while still, or will WFH 2-3 days a week become expected.
Mamas, my husband is having a really hard time at work. He’s been very stressed out, the culture is very toxic, and he’s a very passionate person so he’s having an extremely hard time. He’s working nonstop, we have a 6 mon old son, and I’m working full time as well. I talk him down from the ledge everyday, he’s decided to switch jobs but right now isn’t having luck. He’s extremely smart, just isn’t fitting in at this place. Thinking of setting up some time to talk to a psychiatrist..cont
Something I’ve struggled with throughout WFH is feeling so distracted by every other thing around me and in my life that needs to be taken care of. I feel like when I was at the office I was mainly focused on work and now my mind wanders in a million directions. Does anyone relate and/or have tips to compartmentalize and stay focused? Love the flexibility of wfh but it’s truly been a nightmare for me in terms of productivity.
Agree or Disagree? Remote teaching = more parental involvement. If you agree, do you think this is for the best, or are they getting TOO involved?
What is your typical schedule like? Are companies outside the tech world more flexible with remote work or are you going in regularly?
Hey Fishies I accepted an offer from PwC SDC. Can anyone throw some light on what kind of a shift in work culture I'll expect? Currently working in EY India. YoE 6 and tech stack Microsoft based.
Any good suggestions for work from home music? I find Lofi works well during the day in the background. Any suggestions welcome!
I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
Need a freelance Sr. Copywriter 8/6-8/20 to work on social - social ads, static feeds, carousels for a mattress brand. Do you have a bunch of social, are you available and nice? Fully remote. Reach out to me :)
There was a payroll error and my severance was significantly overpaid and now they want to correct it. Am I obligated to return that money?
Hot take: All white collar jobs should be 100% remote. All these boomers at the helm are making that impossible by thinking that we need to be at a client site or office to work. This last year and a half has shown that we don’t need to be physically there
After a few long interview processes, I've learned that prior CPG experience is highly valued when entering any CPG industry (even in low- to mid-level roles). Can someone with experience recruiting in the space help explain the importance of the experience? Alternatively, would love to be able to "spin" my resume to help fill in the gaps that this lack of experience leaves.
Spider in my Hilton room. How many points?
I’m preparing to put my two weeks in at work. I’m not worried about leaving the company, but I’m nervous about leaving my team while we’re knee-deep in a project. I’ll be around for shooting and early editing our commercial (which is the bulk of the campaign), and I’m definitely able to hand off other small tasks, but I can’t help but feel anxious to tell them I’m leaving. Is this a normal feeling?
Anyone know about the hierarchy at Visa?
What’s base salary range for brand side directors and senior directors? I know it’s largely industry and location dependent but putting it out there for discussion. I was getting $155k as a director at a finserv.
Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?
Hello everyone, I was laid off a few months ago working as a Business Analyst for a well known EHR company. I have been having a pretty rough time getting interviews. For those who wouldn’t mind, may I get some feedback on my resume?
Behind every well-written, +100 page contract, there is a 1st year associate or law clerk whose soul has been completely crushed proofreading the damn thing.
I’m leaving for a new role in sept but planned on letting D know at the 2 week mark. Should I just tell them now? What diff does it make? Can you even leave with longer than a 2 week notice
Folks - what’s your 1) Total Comp vs Net Worth, and 2) age. Curious about individuals’ saving and investment practice. I’m 180k TC vs 750k NW, age 33
Today, I received a call from HR for salary discussion. He was too honest and said to me, You are not going to join as you have to serve three months notice period so i can not offer you more than 30% hike 😅
Hey Fishes, trying to benchmark my salary here… senior associate, advisory, tier 2 city, big 4, 7 yoe in consulting, although less in the current community. What would be a good range?
Has anyone here (especially BCGers) taken a leave of absence in the past? Have you described it in the application as an employment break? If not, how’ve you explained your promotion isn’t on time?
At a new firm and right away I knew I wasn’t going to get along with one partner. Had a conflict with one of his associates early on. Everyone else is cool. Got into it with the partner and he told me he didn’t need my help on his matters anymore. The cool associates are still asking if I can pitch in cause they’re swamped. I’m a nice guy (despite what the partner and uncool associate may say), so I’m helping out. I’m the guy that gets fired and shows up the next day. Results TBD.
Hi, I have more than 5+ years of experience in Performance Testing and engineering. I do not want to continue in tech. Want to switch to management. So planning to do a PMP course. Really confused about the consequences after the course, whether I'll be able to successfully get a management role or not. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Any guidance is appreciated.
Define the type of person who thrives at Edelman and fits the culture and the ones who don’t
Recently started B4 accounting advisory - my projects keep getting delayed or cancelled and for the last few months I’ve only worked about two weeks. My next engagement just got cancelled and now I’m seriously worried about my utilization and about getting fired after just starting. My counselor was aware of my situation but didn’t mention too much about it and I’ve been reaching out + letting people know I’m available this whole time. Don’t know what else to do and how concerned I should be
