When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money
Anybody from Klick! Or KlickHealth? Have a goal of getting into account management there. What’s the culture there? Is it worthy of aspiration?
What agencies have flexible time off??
County counsel experience - does anyone have insight into how working in a county counsel office might compare to a law firm? I know each one is probably different, but just wondering generally about work life balance, workload, etc. I’m looking to escape billable hours and pressure to find clients, and would like to work somewhere with real vacation days. Thanks!
Currently planning an Australian vacation. Definitely visiting Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Debating on adding Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef. I don’t scuba so is it worth it?
I am still learning and my sr manager is really making me feel stupid. And maybe its just my firms culture but I am on a new engagement and have no senior above me to guide me, the work stream is just me and my senior manager. She had asked me a question about the engagement as to why we are doing something and she got mad because this was the second time she was telling me. I know she is really upset with me but this is all new and I have no one to go to for regular questions. I feel so dumb
Anyone have any insight into white & case’s Palo alto office? Had a recruiter call me about it. I’m at another Am10 firm. Hours/culture, etc. 5th year m&a. Thanks
How do you charge your time if you are on the bench but also planning on resigning in a couple weeks? I don’t want anyone to give me work but obv want to get PTO paid out when I leave. What have others here done?
Hey everyone, I need feedback of TIAA in Pune regarding Work culture, Techstack (.net), Environment for work and Growth. Is it good for long term?
I am currently outside the US on PTO, is it legally possible to work remotely on H1B for about a month to spend time with family?
I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
Hey all, I remember seeing a email where it states PTO this year will not effect utilization.. But i see it resulting in a low utilization for me.. Both standard and adjusted are at 75%..Can someone please help me understand this.. Thanks

How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
What’s better being at a small consulting firm working with people you like and solid culture but lower pay. Or going to a bigger firm (Accenture, Big Four, etc.) with more competitive higher pay?
Friends of fishbowl. Need advice on two very different offers I have: - ZS Consultant: 170k base, 20k signing. Will be joining Process Excellence and Transformation under the Business Operations Group - Deloitte Manager: 155k. Will be joining Strategy & Analytics and will focus on Financial Services Money aside, which is better for career growth, culture, experiences? Note that I already have 4 years of consulting experience at another big 4 so brand recognition is not important to me

I just moved from F1 to H1B. So far I’ve been filling my taxes in India as a resident and have not converted any of my bank accounts. When does my status switch to non resident in India? When it does switch, what are the steps I need to take? I have FDs through my bank and stock and MF investments through a broker.
Here’s a project that I’ve been working on for over a year. There are about 150 icon portraits on this wall featuring individual illustrated quotes. It was created for the lobby of a VC incubator in Santa Monica.
Interviewed with @Deloitte (North America). I was told that they will provide an update in 2 weeks. It's been more than a week now. Doesn't sound very positive. Any thoughts? I believe it was one and only interview. PS: can you rely on job portal for most recent status?
For those of you who have stayed with the same company which you started, when did you see the most significant salary bump? Why/how did it happen?
How bad would it be to sleep with a manager on the same project? Not reporting to them but they work w my manager I believe
I’ve been a CD for a few years now. And I’m starting to worry about getting stuck here. How do you move up to GCD or ECD levels? Is it usually an internal promotion or external opportunity?
Big 4. Last year was a promotion year for me, and I killed it. Got the promo, the highest performance rating, a 15% raise, and a 20% bonus.

If you’re worried about your students because they were online all year please check out my resource. I was a first grade teacher last year online and a doctorate student. I could tell the kids would need some SEL to transition back! Filled with guiding questions and a sequencing activity. Very helpful to teach empathy to those students who were not online as well 💕. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n9jcRsJ8NGc&feature=youtu.be. https://www.amazon.com/Follow-Distance-Learning-Agnieszka-Petlik/dp/1637103956/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=follow+me+to+distance+learning&qid=1628036547&sprefix=follow+me+to+distance&sr=8-3. https://cea.org/simsbury-teacher-writes-book-to-help-students-understand-experience-of-remote-learning/
I don’t suppose anyone has any opinions of health agencies in London? Quick scan through this bowl suggest not, but the health bowl is basically all NY.
I saw a post about getting the vaccine and many responses. This article has good info about the vaccine I believe. Just read it. https://www.advisory.com/en/daily-briefing/2020/04/13/covid-young-people
Ladies have you ever fallen for a guy over text? This guy is so hot and cold with me and we’ve never met - but have such a great time texting. It’s so confusing. He lives 4.5 hours away from me and works 6 days a week (sometimes 7). We were supposed to meet some time back and then his mom got sick and then I got covid and then he got this job... and we never met again. What do I do ? He rarely ever initiates conversations these days, but when I do message him he’s on a roll.
Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road
