Has anyone worked got both PwC and Capgemini. Keen to get a women’s perspective on culture and Women in SL positions please?
When the interviewer asks why you're looking for a new job, how do you nicely say, "Because my manager is batshit crazy and I'd rather carve my eyeballs out with a spoon than do another tax with her"?
I’ve been with my company for 2.5 years. There are no performance reviews. There’s talk about rolling them out, but I don’t know what timeline they’re on and I’m growing increasingly dissatisfied with my comp and can’t wait. I would like to prepare a case for a raise and a more formal bonus plan. I need help please with basics like how to ask for the meeting, start/end the conversation (I can prepare the meat of the argument with my achievements). Money talks are not my strength

How can I optimize the transition to my new living situation below?
Moving to a new apartment after traveling for 3 years. I own no furniture, no stuff, no car, but will need to buy it all in the next 1-2 months.
I have a 760 credit score, wife is immigrating to the US now and has no US credit history.
I am also creating my first LLC + S-Corp this month, so I can qualify for business credit cards as well, if that helps.
I want all of the points 🤑

I am a Tech Consulting Senior at PwC but my primary skill set has been in consumer and retail advanced analytics 5 yrs exp and I have a masters in the same. How should I go about moving to MBB. I am working on data management technologies and its not my thing. Not willing to go the MBA route. Any suggestions on how I can make the leap.
FIRE folk, do you contribute to a traditional IRA, with the expectation that your income will be lower when you finally hit FIRE and hope for that ~10 tax, so you'll do ladder conversions later or do you do direct Roth or backdoor Roth conversion contributions now? I don't mind the Roth contributions now, but I truly believe we'll have less income when retired. No kids now, but planning to in a couple of years.
Job stressing me out and working late nights often. I’ve recently passed my 6m probation and want baby soon as I’m currently 34. Would you: 1/ quit and focus on being healthy and getting pregnant (hubby can financially support) 2/ ride it out and quit after your maternity leave?
I’m joining Accenture Federal soon and had some questions about parental leave. First, is there a minimum timeframe you have to work for Accenture before they let you take maternity/parental leave. Secondly, in the recruiting brochure maternity leave is separate from parental leave. Can you take both of you are the primary caretake for a total of 4 months?

Would like this in the US.

I'm 27 and have always been unhappy with my smile. Finally learned about palate expansion recently thanks to another thread on this bowl.
I do think my palate (upper jaw) is too narrow and I would benefit from palate expansion. Will sign up for dental during open enrollment but want to hear if anyone else has gotten palate expansion as an adult? How old were you and how did it go?
What’s good with all these antivax people claiming vaccines cause autism? Do they think the chemists are in the lab with a vial of liquid autism pouring it into the mix?
If one good thing came out of the pandemic for me, it’s that I’ve gotten really good at cooking (finally). Here’s my roasted Brussels sprouts with garlic, pancetta, lemon vinaigrette, and chili flakes.

Inspired by video games. Went out to world of Newyorkcraft today to farm/hunt. Was able to take down some epic monsters and demonic plants. Here’s the loot I was able to obtain: 1) Fungus stalkers
Anyone else have a Zoom face?
Theoretically, if you were laid off during COVID19 and have a 6 month gap or something, and the economy starts picking up, how receptive and understanding would companies be of that empty gap?
Zoomers and K-pop fans: I salute you.
Coming back from furlough in about a week. Any tips, advice, and general thoughts on coming back “swinging”.
I got fired today and the US economy is in a recession and I can’t find another job. What do I do?
I’m totally empathetic to people that miss offices and traveling. I understand your reasons why, I truly do.
For me personally, after non-stop weekly travel for 4 straight years, not traveling has made me realize how much I enjoy being home. Spending time with family, sleeping in your own bed, consistent exercise schedule, etc.
I for one hope consulting becomes more of a hybrid travel model (i.e. travel 1-2x per month or as needed). Else it won’t be for me.
Anyways, just some thoughts.
