We had an intern one year who was dared to a burger eating challenge (I forget if it was Shake Shack or White Castle). It ended in an Exorcist style projectile vomiting scene, it wasn't pretty

Wait. Why can't you open the file as read-only and then save as a new file? What am I missing here?

SA1, complete with the backwards head spin?

@SA1 that sounds awesome. Better than what I heard from my friend at another firm, intern left a file open on his computer before going home that a manager needed to edit. Poor kid was let go.

@IBA1 this was at a BB too. Was working at his own desk. Highlights another perhaps more important issue about office efficiency IMO.

That would make sense.

Or the file was linked to by other files? But yeah, this seems strange

Advice for a lady intern?

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?

I’m a Senior 2 high performer in Tax and am happy with my current job/coworkers. But I know that if I never leave EY, I’ll be underpaid compared to outside hires. I don’t want to leave EY for another firm, because I don’t want to have to rebuild my reputation and network. The thought has crossed my mind to apply to another Big 4 firm and get an offer from them and bring it to EY to ask for a pay raise (essentially say “match it or I’ll leave”). Has anyone ever done this? What was the response?
