Annoyed with myself (and work culture): my neighbor came banging on my door this morning to tell me we needed to evacuate because there was a possible bomb threat outside our building. My first instinct wasn't to get out of there as quickly as possible for my safety; instead it was "oh I should grab my work computer and I'll go find internet somewhere so I don't miss a deadline." 🤦🏼
Anyone know if United will status match Delta?
Does anyone actually get complimentary upgrades due to United status? I just hit gold and so far it seems like a hoax.

ZS vs. Slalom? Money is very similar for roles at both with focus on LS compliance so just asking for a sense of culture and WLB
I’m in consulting because in my undergrad business school culture it was either finance (non corporate) or consulting. Industry was seen as failure. I never gave it second thought. Anyone else?

Does anyone have any insights on Pelaton FP&A culture? Looks like promotions are every 8-9 months
Any thoughts or news about companies reconsidering reopening with the rise of the Delta Variant. This rent free life is hard to give up
“Per diem” meal expenses are EXPLOITATION. $50 is not enough for a single meal at a hotel restaurant, let alone an entire DAY for food. Shifting travel costs onto your employees = evil. Yes i mad :<
Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.
Do you ever get a sense that desi women tolerate abuse more than women here? As in, perhaps several of the things we identify as abusive in the US aren’t even considered abuse in the context of this culture yet?
Hi All, I am from Performance Testing background and will joining Citi Group Account from TCS. Any idea on how the work culture and account is?
Welcome to the thunder dome - the GPS SM/SPL focused micro culture of Deloitte. This cohort is your competition for the next level, or your peers shoulder to cry on, or your oracle for navigating the worst/best decision of your life, and possibly your only source of a reality check on Deloitte GPS. Good luck, sisters and bros.
Hi, I am on my H-1b visa and got an offer from another firm say A, so would need a visa transfer. Although I have another interviews lined up and I am expecting an offer from firm B. Would it be fine if I sign the offer with firm A and let them start the transfer process but once later I get offer from firm B, would it be fine if they start transfer process too and then decide which one to choose? Is that possible?

Piggybacking off the manager post below. SA3 currently at 115k NYC. What kinds of exit opportunities are available for me? Should I stay for promotion? What would I reasonably get?
Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
The internet has been scaring me about flying while pregnant. Any past/current moms who flew frequently? (For work or pleasure) Up to how many weeks in your pregnancy did you fly?
Capital One 🐟: I've got a friend who's asking if her research is accurate. Is the following comp package for a senior manager, product, in the ballpark for Tysons? Base of $170-180k, target bonus of 22%, sign on of ~15%. Thanks!
Captain: "Welcome to LAX...our gate is occupied, should be just a few more minutes." Shocker...
When considering leaving a firm because of its negative impact on your mental health, how long did you wait before leaving? Follow up question: when interviewing at new places, how do you professionally explain you left because of how badly it was affecting your mental health without bad mouthing the firm?
Moms, do you have recommendations for formula? My baby is 5 and half months old, and I want to supplement with formula, just a few ounces every day. She had some Similac and enfamil samples, and don’t have any negative reaction with either.
I’m relatively new at my company, and I have a business person (whom I have already worked on a project with) that won’t respond to me. I sent a few emails to her over the last 3 weeks, then messaged her on teams on Monday without response. I really need her help. Any advice outside of cc’ing the supervisor (or maybe that’s the only advice)?
Any San Antonio 🐟 here? Thinking about relocating from Chicago and am wondering if it is a good place to raise a family
My I-140 just got approved but the firm is telling me that I’ll only give me a soft copy of the approval as they will keep the original. Is that an issue or does the soft copy works for all purposes? Also my H1B will expire in another year. Any suggestions from the experienced GC process people in terms of timing job change that I hope to do soon? Thanks
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!
