HR keeps trying to paper me up with speed to output crap because they think I’m sick, but the reality is that I’m terminal and probably won’t be around to see the end of this. God I hope they don’t pretend to put up a caring memorial when I’m gone.
I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.
Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
How do you avoid that sick feeling after flying? Not nausea sick, more like sore throat, dry chest sick. I always feel terrible after a few flights
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
Anybody else sick and tired of other team members forgetting procedures and disrupting workflow? 😤
Looking to Recruit Sr. Program Manager in the IT team. $3B global medical device company. Someone who is at SC/M level would make a great fit. DM me if interested
If you’ve ill informed friends and families about the virus and race, please call them out and inform them of the realities. The virus is a problem in itself, we don’t need more racism and violence.
This 4th of July has been the worst one in my whole life. I found out my significant other was cheating on me, my dog got really sick and now my pregnancy test came out positive...
Has anyone resigned while on a medical LOA?
Any good agencies in Colorado? Sick of living in Chicago and just want a change of pace.
How does disclosing our disability status in job apps impact our chances of getting interviewed?
Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads. I went straight to Accenture right after college and while I’m so grateful for having a good job, I just feel like I haven’t done enough and will never realize certain financial goals at the rate I’m going. The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”
I was supposed to go out of town this weekend but I’ve been up most of the night because I’m sick 🙄🥺 Now I just feel sad and bored, so much for celebrating on being vaccinated 🥲
Should I quit Big4 to become a medical doctor?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
When does Big 4 usually do background checks? I’m expecting an offer before the holidays and I interviewed a while ago, but was let go from my current place in the process.
15+ YoE with a mix of tech / analytics strategy + hands on AI/ML implementation both at boutique and Big 4 + program leadership (managing 20 - 30 person cross-functional teams). Would aiming for $350k TC be too high? What are potential exit ramps?
My ultimate future goal is to work in vulnerability management or penetration testing. Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time? Or will nobody take a chance on me once I’m 5 years into my career? Or will they but my salary will go down significantly as I’ll kind of be a newbie again?
How much money is enough money? Interviewing with a bunch of companies but dont know how to make a tradeoff between the role and culture vs comp. How do y'all think about comp?
Anyone had experience working on an account like the army or navy? Is it similar to healthcare where it’s hard to get out once you start?
I induce meaningful learning in my classroom by using concrete situations in the world as a resource to illustrate the learning goals of my lessons.
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
My company plans to have an onsite meeting for 3 days which would require me to travel and stay at a hotel. I recently joined the company so this will be a great opportunity to meet my team but at the same time worried about what I would bring back from the travel. I’ve two girls under 3 who go to daycare but we have tried to be as cautious as possible. I’m not sure if they would have such meetings in the future so trying to decide what is best for myself and my family. What would you do?
Checking in emails during time off, yes or no? It helps me to relax knowing everything is fine. Looking for feedback, thanks
I had an interview with PepsiCo. I was looking for 140 to 150 salary and they said they could only do 112k. It’s a lot of money to leave on the table. I told them I don’t wanna continue with the process mainly cause I don’t wanna waste their/my time. Do other 🐠 s continue with the interview process in hopes of convincing the hiring team to offer you more money because they really like you￼?
Do you believe in the idea that you should always be looking/applying for roles, even if you’re content where you’re at? If so, what’s the motivator behind it?
Not a points thing but shout out to brooks brothers at Ohare! Got to airport realized I forgot cuff links went to brooks brothers lady said “look doll no need to spend 90 bucks I got these knitted one
Anyone at Deloitte have some insight on the Strategic Communications and Change Management positions for analyst and consultant? What to expect in the final interview? Base salary + bonus? WLB? Asking for a relative! Deloitte
Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!
Friends with smaller classrooms and 25 + students, can you send pics or give some suggestions of your favorite desk layouts? I need new ideas please! (Don’t be fooled by the picture, it’s much smaller than it seems).
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
