Hey Detroit 🐟, my partner and I are looking for new opportunities in the area. Anybody hiring teams?
New fish looking for career guidance. I'm a corporate recruiter with 3 years of experience. Finishing my degree in HRM 5/2022. I'm thinking of getting my SHRM -CP shortly after graduation. I'm not sure of where to go after that, but I doubt I will stick with recruiting or my current firm. Has anyone here started off in recruiting and branched out to other HR functions? Do you like your new role? Do you wish you stuck with recruiting?

Ex-Big 4 folks at MBB: how has the experience been for you so far? Any of you been in a situation where you’re coming to a MBB in a lower role but have excelled in moving up quickly? (Or not.) Thinking about making the leap but would love to hear if the MBB hype was worth it. (FWIW: My work hours are 65-80/wk so I’m pressed to think it’ll be that much worse on the other side.)

After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august. It’s now almost September and no response (this includes multiple follow ups). They say it usually take 1-2 days to respond to emails. Hypocrisy?
Eye-opening article about how the current political and social atmosphere is not something acute - it has been brewing for decades.

Anyone care to shed some light on UBS and their inner workings (culture, career growth etc) Considering a position in their Reg Reporting group and Glassdoor isn’t cutting it.

Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.

Coming from Big4, interviewing with a small, but successful software consulting startup. F500 clientele, solid portfolio. 20 people in the firm total. Nearly double pay plus equity and revenue sharing in a client management role. Promised a high degree of independence and trajectory for growth. Anything I should be wary of? Is this too good to be true?
Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
