Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.
Interviewed for a job late 2018. Accepted another offer. A day later, the first job reached out and I told them. Lost job for going to HR over a verbally abusive boss. Is it weird to reach back out...
Supremely generalized but is WLB best to worst A strategy > EYP > S& correct? Interviewing with all three and my priority is the least try hard culture with nice people
Question regarding Salaried Employees and sick days. I’ve never worked in a company where, as a salaried employee, I had to deduct SICK days from my PTO. What are your practices?
It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume. It’s a cold world out there and loyalty means nothing to your employer. Here’s to hoping that everyone lands on their feet and I’ll see y’all in a happier future.
5 years ago, I decline an opp to interview with Bain for an internal role. I think the title was process / tools specialist and the purpose was to provide SME on resources available to Bain’s consultants. Does anyone here have a sense of what the pay is for that type of role? I had been working as a consultant in HR Tech at the time and chose to move to industry instead. Bain had been a lifelong goal and I convinced myself I wasn’t good enough. It’s felt like the one that got away since.
What does your firm allow you to count towards non-billable hours other than standard business development?
Are there any agencies that are actually liberal and only have clients that are moving society forward? Sick of working for brands I don't believe in or for clients whose beliefs conflict with my own.
I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly. I blocked out time to work a full day knowing I’d dive right in but that’s not how it turned out. My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?
I am working with a few clients looking to raise capital to bring medical research into the clinic. This is a new endeavor for the firm. I am looking for ideas?
Does EY offer joining bonus for exp hires when extending an offer? Or should I be negotiating for that?
Anyone ever used LegacyBox or simular digitizing services? Trying to pick best one for dad on Father's Day. Would choose Costco but that seems harder to gift
What's wrong with applying for credit cards to maximize the bonus offers? Given credit score is well above 780. Besides looking very "cheap", what other damage does it generate?
Does anyone have any tips for starting the conversation with people about promotion readiness? I know I need to proactively bring it up in conversations, but want advice on the best way to frame
For those of you with United Global Services... I've heard the earning requirements are at least 100k flown miles and about $50k in spend. Curious what you all had when you were invited.
Wish someone would’ve told me this before I came here, stay away from Swift PDX. Not a solid piece of work has left this agency’s doors in years. Updating that resume as we speak.
For those who made the jump from large consulting firms to boutique outfits, did you enjoy the switch? I imagine at the top level, smaller firms provide greater responsibility, maybe even comp?
