Was chopping it up with my barber yesterday and he starts talking about how he just got a promotion at his second job w/ Amtrak. He was very excited about his new salary of $76k a year (cont)
I work about 20 hours a week with focus and dedication, charge clients about 40. Have been doing this for almost few years and client/ employee love my work product/ management- Am I just burnt out or is it normal to gain such efficiency? Getting highest ratings and never been questioned....🤔 Thinking about switching jobs and fear loosing this luxury.
Nevada teachers, are you voting today? Are Nevada teachers unionized? Which candidate is the union endorsing? Just curious :)
A client gave me some feedback and told me that I should speak less in meetings. Is this good advice in general or should I only speak less in front of her (i.e., to appease the client but it’s actually bad advice lol).
a weekly reminder to people looking to hire talent: rejection letters after phone, video, and several in person interviews are so so so much better than absolute silence
Any idea why EY is not on the list of Vault 50 top consulting firms but it is on the prestigious list?
My last agency hired back a ton of the people who were laid off (thankfully I landed a new gig, would not go back to that place). They decided to bring back 10/19 that were laid off. Unfortunately, they are notorious for doing this on multiple occasions. What are your thoughts on hiring back those you let go? And to clarify as a group we were let go not furloughed.
PROPOSAL: Can we start naming names with respects to layoffs, furloughs, and pay cuts? Knowledge is power, and the only ones who benefit from vague exchanges of info. are the employers. Thank you!
Thinking of making a switch from mid-tier firm working in alt investment tax to Deloitte with the HNW individual tax group in NY.. Can anyone describe the hours, salary, culture? Should I go for it?
Any tips on dealing with despicable per diem attorneys in state court? An added wrinkle is I’m male and the per diem is particularly sexist and belittling to female co-defendant counsel.
Is there really a point in leaving as soon as you get the senior promotion (besides bonus)? Does it really make you that much more marketable if you got the title then left before using it?
If you can create a personal project from scratch to add to your portfolio, how would you approach it?
Trying to book a Hertz rental using points on the app - points can apparently only be used for preset $ discounts, and only up to 600 points for $30?? Is this new? Or am I missing something
I have my mid-year coming up this week and want to bring up my want for a promotion again. We briefly talked about it about 2 months ago and they were supportive, but how do I bring this up again and tell them I’d like it before end of year? I don’t think Covid will be an issue, we’re up 42% vs. PY and 32% vs. plan.
Senior associate role vs senior consultant (IT audit). If you are offered a Sr. Associate role within a big financial institution and you would be a Sr. Consultant in your present firm, what to do?
I’m sorry I just want a safe space to vent as I’m feeling insecure right now. 😞 I have a case interview with tier 2 strategy firm tomorrow. Today I did some mock cases with someone who have UG&PhD from Ivy League. She gave rough feedback on my performance. When it was my turn to be the interviewer: she did the math wrong and when I was trying to re-direct her, she said “I’m sorry but this is going to be a waste of your time. Can u just send me the case” basically kicked me out our meeting 😢
