Any associate at Citi LDN ECM that would kindly share any insight into culture, work/life and dynamics of the team? Hugely appreciated!
I love my firm, but just got an offer to move firms for a bigger chunk of change and lower billable hours requirement. Logically, it makes sense to move, but I’m hesitant. Both firms seem great culture-wise. I am young and succeeding at my current firm. Any thoughts?
Some general question as I am not 100% on the culture. We forgot our daughter’s scooter at our community park. We see the same brand and color scooter at someone’s driveway near the park. Contd..
What’s a great small to medium (50-200) startup with strong focus on company culture, diversity and equity?
He guys I have an offer from Revolut, they are able to offer a hike of 30% on my base plus 10k GBP equity. I believe the hike is good but I am struggling to settle on the culture and the instability of a startup. Any thoughts on this?
Has anyone heard about the culture and WLB at Unacademy (Indian edtech)? Would be great to know.
Need to give notice to my firm tomorrow. Feeling overcome with emotion (guilt, nostalgia, excitement and trepidation). I don't think it will go well because it's a small firm, and I am very close to the partners, but need to move on to achieve career goals (and maintain sanity--I have a great relationship with my colleagues but there is a toxic culture). Truly think that my mentor will see this as a personal betrayal and blow up at me, and I'm sad to burn the bridge. Any words of encouragement?
How is the work culture in IQVIA?
Millennials: lazy or simply different priorities? I personally find nothing wrong with a generational culture that encourages work-life balance.
Who left consulting recently due to Up or Out culture? Did you change your mind about Up or Out post COVID?
Any Kearney fish with insights on the Southeast Asia offices? Specifically interested in culture, compensation (compared to the US consulting)
Is K&E a toxic firm? I have heard nightmare stories from current and former attorneys there.
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially a bigger Chinese presence
Received 5 resumes to review in the past two weeks, all people on H1b visas. All resumes were 5+ pages for 7-10 years experience. Is this just a culture thing?
How is technology at Huge? Had a recruiter reach out and interested about WLB, what platforms they’re using, work they’re doing, general culture, etc. Tech culture in agencies can be weird so would love any info people have!
Can anyone provide insight to working at Holland and Hart? Also, when do parental leave benefits kick in? Is there a waiting period? Do they negotiate lateral bonuses for losing out on present firm end of year bonus? TIA.
Just want to thank the people in this bowl for giving me advice on several posts awhile back post-COVID layoffs. Had taken on 2 other (senior) people’s jobs/duties and then successfully managed and executed 3 major projects, I finally asked my new boss (team lead) about a title change and I’m glad I did! It was definitely something he had not thought about but could see the clear reasoning behind it and was willing to go to HR to ask if it was possible.
Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage
Is it possible to go from Big 4 consulting to MBB, or would you have to get an MBA to make that shift?
Does BCG platinion offer raise to base salary every year? I know about bonus, not sure about raise.
I will be graduating this Fall, currently interning for TI as a Product Marketing Engineer; I will most likely accept an offer for their Technical Sales Representative 9month rotation program. The pay seems great ($113k base&bonus + 115% - 250% Payout) after finishing the rotation program. I enjoy the Sales Engineer role and think TI is a great company. Is it worth it to still apply to other companies this Fall recruiting season? (I want to be in San Francisco and possibly NYC.)
2nd yr Associate and I find myself constantly stressed. Always thinking about work when at home, remote, when I'm out etc. Worried about not executing or errors in deliverables. How do y'all deal??
How do your companies recognize technical (e.g., STEM) accomplishments? I’ve heard of old school things like fellowships and “Distinguished Engineer” titles. Wondering what other places do now. I’m struggling to see where my path leads if I don’t want to be a people manager and instead focus on becoming a top technical IC instead. Are there clear paths for that anymore?
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
If you haven't had your CRT yet because your RP is MIA (which isn't out of the ordinary), should you be concerned about layoffs?
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?
I'm exhausted. Our district has scripted everything we do in a classroom--very little wiggle room to slow down when we need to. Kids feel like they're in prison; teachers are deflated. If it isn't a curriculum that's so tight kids and teachers can't keep up, there's the district progress monitoring tests and debriefs that have taken up to 5 days of instruction time--another reason things are so tight. I'm very happy to be retiring in the spring. My 10 hour school days are done.

Does BNP APAC does background verification before sending offer letter or after sending the offer letter? I have not been asked about the educational certificates yet. They have only asked the PAN, PASSPORT and Current employer salalry slips and promotion letter. P.s - I have recieved the offer letter now. Will they be still doing any background verification or this is done ?
