Going up for promotion this year and was told by my (male) director that I look “too young” and should stop smiling as much if I want my clients to see me as an acting manager
Do art directors and copywriters make the same salary? My partner and I recently got a promotion, and his raise was significantly higher than mine. Is this normal?
So proud to be at PwC. Support for our black community, no lay-off, still have bonus, still have promotion.
We had a great year but our total comp is nothing compared to OW/Milliman... time to raise our billing rates or jump ship. 🤔
WPP friends, how far ahead of time does your agency typically let you know you’re getting a promotion?
My wife is a finance manager. At the start of the new year, she got a job at a small tech firm locally for 25% raise. It's owned by private equity. While they did say it was long hours, she's been working 8a to 10p each workday, with team calls from 6-10p. She's also been working 6 to 8 hours Sunday. What do you all advise she do? How can she manage expectations when her boss is VP of finance, reporting to CEO, who is over promising? Last person they hired quit after 2 days.
In AFS, does my CC have a say in my promotion or is it all my supervisor? My annual performance advocate is my cc btw
How long is too long to be promised a promotion? How to detect bs from reality? I’m at my last straw here...
I got an offer at Salesforce that would give me more responsibities/growth, but it's not a raise in title. I'm still interested becuase it would give me a path to FAANG. What do you suggest?
After being put on a client that requires walkthrus at 3 AM, I’ve reached my breaking point. I NEED out. It’s to the point where Im considering an offer in industry that will result in just a 2% raise
Is a breakaway from Tech consulting to economic development possible? What are your stories or stories you’ve heard? Thanks for all advice/opinion. 2 years in after college with recent promotion
Promotion was shelved due to world events, if I have the opportunity to take the title but defer the raise, should I do it? Keeping in mind I'm already doing the work of the new role
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
BCG peeps: What's the process and timing to be evaluated for PL --> Principal promotion? I see some people getting it after 18 months, 21 months, 24 months...
What’s the rationale as a freelancer to call one’s self an “ECD” or “CCO” or whatever when they never had that title in an actually full-time capacity? Just sounds like over-compensation to me.
Might be a long shot, but is anyone still waiting for final decision for H1B ? I got RFEd and responded back in late August. It’s been over 100 days but still haven’t heard back, and I’m getting frustrated.
Anyone from A&M turnaround and restructuring practice willing to chat? Looking to get some first hand experience and interview insights
Recently exited to corporate as a manager in a strategy role. The place is great, but I realize I don't have dedicated folks to make slides for me similar to consulting, and end up making quite few on my own (which is not the most efficient - since it has been a while since I made slides e2e with the formatting et. al). When one tends to apply consulting rigor into the process - this can get quite time consuming. Anyone else face this? How did you handle it?
The number of texts, phone calls and emails I got over the last few days it occurred to me. I am “the black friend”.
All those whose OPT has ended and have received H1B rejection notices, where are you going now ? Which global office are you joining ?
I am United 1K expiring January 31. Only will make gold this year. Leaving consulting. Worth it to match at the last second to Delta? Is it easy? I hate American so not an option. Other alternatives?
Does accrued PTO expire at end of the year in Washington state (Seattle)? Transferring there from a state where PTO does not expire and can be carried over and stops accruing after limit.
I’m thinking of setting up a Zoom call (yes cringe) for all you single peeps. To make sure it’s not a sausage fest, DM me if you’re interested and I’ll set it up. Thinking like 5 guys/5 girls to stsrt
I am desperate to get out of my current firm. Would it be worth it to reach out to my alma mater's alumni network? Not sure how much it'll actually help considering I only have one year of experience and not many companies are hiring atm...
Started a new job a few months ago (remote for now). I'd consider myself a friendly person, but it's been really tough fitting in. I can't seem to get in on the camaraderie. And even worse, it seems like my CD and I are always on the wrong page/he seems unhappy with my work, my comments and even my questions. Trying my best here. Working long hours, but...I'm at a loss. Has anyone successfully settled into a job while remote? I sincerely welcome advice here.
When you small talk with your client about the weather but then you realize you actually only spend about 6 minutes outside each day when traveling
Has anyone taken the Microsoft Excel certification tests? Wondering how hard they are and if anyone would actually care about the certification?
