Is there a difference between specialist leader and senior manager at promotion time? And what’s typical base and bonus for 1st year SM/Spec Leader?
Raise your hand if you remember having to cover your textbooks with brown bags? I remember making designs on the covers and getting marked down if it wasn’t covered by a particular date.
I have had 3 bosses in my 2.5 years at my agency with a 6 month gap of no boss. No one is looking out for me and my promotion I have been promised. I have a meeting with HR. Help! What do I say?
Does anyone know of any companies that do bottom up reviews? Obviously I think manager to associate reviews should be taken into account for bonus / promotion, but there are so many managers out there who don’t know how to manage and aren’t good to their subordinates, why aren’t there some sort of reviews for the bottom up to review their managers/ directors
Anyone else feel like W hotels are really annoying with their nightclub atmosphere? W Scottsdale is an offender.
Anyone at EY involved in promotion decisions using new LEAD platform care to talk about the process differences in evaluating / determining promotions this year than previous years?
I like my current job, company and public accounting. I know I am being underpaid at $70k as a senior tax associate with 2-3 years of experience as I have talked with my local peers as well as local recruiters. Also, I know outside hires to my company get paid about $5-$10k higher than me, but they don’t get a raise the following year. My question is what is everyone’s experience with company hopping to get a pay bump within public accounting?

How does one get better at networking chats/virtual informational interviews? Had one yesterday and I was so awkward and i can’t stop thinking about it. I felt bad for the other person on the other end. I’m so anxious at making the conversation flow but I feel like I end up interrogating then with questions in hopes of a referral (which usually happens but I want to build a connection rather than just a reference)
Manager told me I can’t take time off for my “appointment” Interview, what do I do from here? It already scheduled with people who are really high up in the company.
So, I see a lot of passive aggressiveness towards the new bowl. While someone rightly pointed out that it really highlights the divide amongst us, the reactions to the creation of the other bowl also highlights our intolerance. If you guys have a problem with that other bowl, just don’t join it! I’d rather there be a separate bowl than have people to hear moan about visa posts. Also, I don’t understand when people moan about these visa posts. If you feel that’s all that’s being discussed here, it’s because the others aren’t posting at all. Finally, just to add I’m one of your ‘visa’ guys too. Let’s just learn to be a little tolerant about people who don’t agree with our views, shall we?
Can you still interview for a job after you have already accepted an offer from a different company?
My coworkers are surprised that I have elected to not pursue a promotion because I do not have/will never have children. I think there's this expectation that women who choose to not have a traditional nuclear family must be very career oriented. I'm perfectly happy continuing to make good money with the lower stress job I have now rather than work myself to the bone as a Manager and higher. My job is just that - a job. It pays for my passions and is not my life focus.

Anyone have Aspergers? (Now ASD) I also have social anxiety, GAD, and ADD. I’ve somehow made it work at Accenture, albeit have struggled throughout my career, especially socially. Curious if any fellow Aspies have similar coping strategies or can share their own strategies that work. For me, it’s strict routines, planning my day the night before (even weekends), organization app (Notion is a lifesaver), OneNote, and headphones while working at the office to limit sensory overload (pre-COVID).
I shared our story of how something really bad can happen when you’re trying to do too much as a parent on my IG story. Hope it helps others keep their priorities in check during this crazy time.
