Just signed my offer for a Product Manager role and ~100% bump in TC. After four years of being undervalued at Deloitte and two years of making it to final round interviews with no offers, it finally feels like it was all worth it. Hope all of you who are still searching get to experience this someday, and sooner rather than later. It can be done!

Newly promoted senior here, ever since I updated my LinkedIn I’ve been getting a lot of messages from recruiters, I’m not looking to exit my current role. Do I just ignore these messages or should I be responding in any way?

Would you take a slight pay cut to make a horizontal move to a more interesting industry and better location? I recently decided to make a move that was an 8% cut but I’m excited about the role and better WLB.
It’s no secret that people in IB, Big Law, and other super high paying but terrible WLB jobs are miserable. Anyone in one of those fields will tell you that they are despite the money and that the money isn’t life changing unless you stay at least a decade or two. So why do people still do it? The only reasonable argument I’ve seen (at least for IB) is to do it for 2 years and exit to something better but that ends up being PE for most which has similarly terrible WLB and misery. What gives?
Anybody EY-Parthenon who can refer me for an appropriate role? Below are my credentials - 1) SC at Deloitte (Previous Employer - ZS Associates) 2) Total exp: 5-6 years in Commercial Analytics and Strategy consulting 3) Education - Masters in Business Analytics Happy to talk more on a dm/call/email.
I see people asking here all the time for a referral. New to this. Is it much easier to get hired via internal referral? Does referring someone you've never met before not reflect poorly on you if that person isn't qualified? Internal recruiter/hr doesn't ask how you know the person or what you think of him/her?
Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!

EY careers website is down for almost a week now. Really? In such a busy hiring season, EY is upgrading their careers website and that too with a week of downtime.
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?

Hi All, Did anyone know about the company Trane Technologies and know any insights about the company? Trane Technologies is manufacturing company of HVAC. Not sure about company work culture and other details. Now I got an offer from wipro for 18LPA(17 fixed + 1lakh variable). And there is a offer from Trane Technologies for 16LPA. So not sure to choose between 16LPA product based company or 18LPA service based company. Help me here.
How do you spend you bench time? Feel like I should take adventage of the downtime but worry that I might not seem proactive enough for optics.

10 years ago today I had my tubes tied. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It took years standing up to practitioners, reiterating my preference, and fighting for medical decisions over my own body. Ten years later and it was all worth it. No hormones, no condoms, no risk of making the hard decisions some I know have had to make. For anyone contemplating it, for anyone fighting with their docs, don’t give up if it’s what you really want.
