I recently moved to Sweden to work as a consultant. But I'm facing problems with all documents issuing processes, that take too long, and without all the documents I can't open a bank account to receive my salary. I'm starting to freak out about this. It seems it's a common situation for foreigners but most consultant companies don't do much for help us - I know some people that only received their salaries after 3 months. As I'm too stressed about it, I can't sleep well and focus at work...
Need help ladies :) I feel I am being paid very less as compared to my peers and other team members. I was the only one on the team from last 4-5 months and have handled everything by myself including coding to daily BAU tasks. How do I go about asking the leadership to increase my compensation? Also, my manager is very demanding and has suggested me not to talk to the CRO about my compensation. Don’t know what to do 😳

So i’m overall not to happy there, and looking for a new job. However every interview I’ve had so far ask why I want to leave such a ”great” company after less than 2 years? I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?

Deloitte refugee. EY or KPMG next? PWC also has a huge overwork culture, so I’m not interested in them (or Guidehouse for that matter).
