How is that the Big 4 in the US offers eye watering salary? In London, a SM makes around £90-100k base ($110-122k) while in US (HCOL) it can be easily $180-$200k. Why is there such a huge discrepancy when the cost of living between London and HCOL cities in the US is similar.

Okay finance gurus, I have an idea and interested in your thoughts. Might be a bad one so be gentle 🙂. I have a 2 yr old and another on the way. Need to start planning for college. I was thinking of buying a condo or 2 in lieu of saving and selling them down the line for tuition. Condos downtown are pretty inexpensive (T3) so it’s financially feasible. But is this a good idea or too risky?
Congrats Camille Vasquez for making partner!
Just heard about E&Y’s women diversity training. I’m wondering if Michael Scott is next year’s keynote speaker?!
Have any of you dated someone who made less than you and noticed insecurities/behaviors from them as a result? First time seeing someone who makes less (he is also finishing up school) - but want to make him feel comfortable. He told me he prefers to go 50/50 on things already.
SA friend: there is nothing wrong w using the passive voice, but even if there were, you don’t know how to identify it. Please don’t constantly change “interest began to accrue from…” to “the Notes accrued interest from…” because you think the former is passive—it’s not, bc “accrue” here is an active intransitive verb. So you’re misapplying your own misinformed rule and messing up my document in the process :/
What’s the culture like in Accenture/Deloitte? Consultancies are know to have intense political culture, long work hours and insane travel with the expectation to just “up and move” overseas. True?
Anyone ever actually recalc the firm's matching contribution to your 401k? Maybe it's just me but mine looks like it's been short the last 3 years.... 🤔
After finishing my PhD, I felt burned out so I spent 2 years unemployed, living with my family. Now every interviewer asks what I did during that period and I honestly don't have a good answer. What would you say?
When a company sends an employee to get his MBA (as a full time student) do those people just live of their savings for that period?
Partners - I just got called out in an email and received blame for something that was not my fault. What’s the best way to proceed? Do I apologize and outline steps to correct, or (cont)
I'm not lazy but I can't get my work done if there's no pressure whatsoever. Especially when all the people around me are typing so loudly. (Is this normal?)
Has anyone attended HireVue digital interview for Emirates or any other company?
