Just got an industry offer for 15% bump - do you think it's fine to put my notice now effective Jan or will they let me go earlier to avoid holiday pay?
👀 Still looking for an apartment swap in NYC. I have a clean apartment in Mexico City. The dates are October 27th to November 3rd, Day of the Dead holiday weekend. With LOTS happening. Located in the best area of Mexico City with a ton of restaurants, cafes, and parks. High speed internet with standing desk, large TV, external monitor, and more. Message me your email or phone number and we can text to exchange pictures and more information.
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.
My wife has had complications with her pregnancy recently, so I've been taking advantage of my unlimited PTO to stay at the hospital. My boss has begun complaining that it's been too frequent and the team needs me. How do I balance being there for my wife and my team?
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Has anyone taken a solo trip recently in the US? Where’d you go? Need ideas with upcoming PTO!
Before people come at me, I typically don’t take much PTO so I’m not entirely sure how this works. If I am one or two days short of what I have left would I just go into a deficit? Or will it not allow me to even put the request in?
EY what’s the catch with unlimited PTO? Is it actually unlimited? Recent hire and just trying to figure out PTO for the holidays
Question for the ladies: what is an appropriate dress for firm holiday parties? I'm naturally curvy so most dresses look like they come with an HR complaint on me. Lol help!
Never have I been able to charge more than 40 hrs on any project I have done (though I was expected to work more). Every day of bench and pto hurts my utilization 😭
PTO at a lake house with a few friends in late October. Are there any Airbnb deals we should leverage? It’s not too pricey once it’s spread across 6 people, but wanted to check in case there’s more
Planning to apply to BCG. My buddy is an ‘Associate Director’ for BCG Platinion. Would a referral from him work if applying to BCG as a Generalist Consultant?
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
I am S3 and PwC is going to file AOS (i140 premium processing and i485 concurrently) soon in October with medical. Will getting promoted to Manager in January 2022 impact my application ? Is that okay ?
Any trial prep tips and tricks for an associate second-chairing a medical malpractice case for the first time?
I wonder what this means for return to office plans.
What is the usual salary bump when you move from associate to Senior associate in KPMG (%, etc.)
Was laid off in April by midsize and have had few interviews in following months. Working with various recruiters yet still no traction. Didn’t go to top tier law school and graduated with 3.2 gpa yet have 3 years experience and being lawyer was 2nd career. Recently working with a boutique for per diem work who gave offer which is a lot lower than prior role (over $40k). Role would have no billables and practically 50% split—what are your thoughts?
Been crying at least twice a day on this new project. It’s been a month of bullying (but hey, you’re the new kid, we’re just joking, that’s how we roll). It sucks SO much.
After a year of being extremely underpaid, my boss gave me a 30% raise I didn't ask for. Is that normal? Or super generous?
What is the promotion cycle in Deloitte? My joining date is on January. Am I eligible for promotion in next year? Can we consider first 1 year as probation period?
For a non-technical PM looking to get more tech experience (and eventually exit) what is best use of time: data science course, web development course, AWS cert.?
What’s market comp for a Director Corp Dev role at a high growth software Series D+ unicorn, and the split in cash and equity? In east coast / Midwest area. TIA!
I work with several people with kids and I have noticed quite often that they completely disregard any issues of people with no kids and try to one up work life imbalance conversations with stories of them being parents. It must be hard being a parent but I don’t think people at work should be treated differently or given any additional consideration just because they have a kid. You already get parental leave so If I’m expected to work 12hr I ask the same to be expected from my peers with kids.
To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀
Is it normal to bill 40 hours instead of 45? It's a long term project and manager wants the entire team to bill at 40 even though we work 50
