So peeps, office opening up. What's your plans on moving to Mumbai? Knowing apartment hunting can be a real bitch, some are planning to go back to hometown in the WFH week. i.e work at office at designated week and live in temporary accommodation, and then travel back.
Best place in ORD to spend the night? Landed late / have an early flight so not worth getting a hotel for the night.
Any views on JetBlue points/status?
Dilemma - To travel or not to travel. That is the question. Delta surge. Is it a good time to look for remote or 50% travel opportunities? What’s your take?
Anybody have experience with United status match? Have Platinum with American now, but trying to decide if worth it to wait until I have Exec Plat (~mid-December to see if it'll convert to 1K or not.
Used corporate code for personal hotel stay and they asked me for ID...I showed my badge but they seemed unsatisfied, what else would I show them to prove I work at the company?
Favorite Marriott owned hotel near Greenwich St, New York? Preferably with M Lounge haha. (For work travel not personal)
3 segments away from delta platinum medallion but I don’t feel like getting on another plane. Any options?
How much do I get to travel in EY SaT (under normal non-covid conditions). Specifically VME group.
Anyone selling 45k-50k united miles? I had a family emergency and have to get back home (not US) asap. Please DM me.
What is the last date that I can accrue EQM towards the status on American for this year? Is it 12/31/19 or 1/31/20? When does it reset for next year?
Please vote, if you can! If you are on travel and forgot to sign up to vote absentee, please take this opportunity to do so, in order that your future votes can be counted!
PwC folks! Is the firm providing any home office benefits like new monitor purchase? I'm starting in September and debating whether I should wait to purchase my second monitor.
I got an offer from a PE ops team I’m content with. Should I still negotiate? Does this mean there is still more room to raise the offer given this is their first offer?
Can you provide advice to succeed/survive on the corporate client side? Moved away from agencies to corporate and it is SOUL SUCKING. Between the lack of flexibility (both personally and day to day), sterile environment, and millions of meetings a day I am going insane. The pay and benefits are dramatically better in this corporate role, but I won’t lie I am missing the freedom of agencies so much right now.
Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?
Round of layoffs happening at 360i today. Don’t worry guys, take it as a blessing in disguise - you all deserve better than that place. ❤️
Hey fishes, I recently joined Deloitte USI Consulting after 1 year of work experience at a boutique consulting post MBA from a Tier 1 institute. In spite of my work experience, I am treated as a Y0 consultant, and the pay seems as per the same level, and I feel like I have been lowballed. What is the typical CTC that new joiners are getting at the Consultant position post MBA from Tier 1 (IIM A,B,C,L,I,K) who are joining laterally?
EY moms (not in CA) - has anyone taken 6 months off after having a baby, taking unpaid LOA at the end after using mat leave and vacation? (I’ve asked this before but no response so I’m going to try again! I had really bad PPA right at 4-5 months with my first so hoping to take 6 months this time)
Should I get an MBA to get into product? I have zero technical/tech company background but dying to make a transition
Whats RSM’s holiday calendar look like?
Anyone have clients in the medical claims processing space looking to sell? I have someone in my network looking to make an acquisition in order to get into the US market. They’re currently based out of the EU.
Work for a T2 but keen to experience industry. How hard is it to break into MBB after having spent a few years in industry? (should I want to come back, of course) Thanks 🐠
Best Marriott property in Big Island, Hawaii ?
Over the holiday shut down I want to really do some things to have alone time and relax. Anyone have a recommendation for a great spa anywhere that’s easy to get to? Either in NYC or an easy place to get to outside? I would love a spot with a serenity room and with hot tubs etc. please share anything you know and if you recommend a specific massage therapist or treatment or anything. Or if you have other spots like Buddhist temples or anything where I can get some relaxation. Thanks!
As a new associate, I really feel like WFH plus starting in January has really hindered my development. There’s so much basic stuff I still don’t know. SALY only gets you so far.
Planning of coming back to US firm with L1B with indian nationality. M promotion will still take 3 years so thinking of trying chances for H1 after moving back to US firm (being optimistic here). What all should I consider? TIA!
If I chose to keep my own phone (not a separate Deloitte phone) does Deloitte reimburse my phone bill?
As someone who didn’t go to portfolio school, Is it possible to get a job a good agency as a junior without getting hired out of an internship?
So last couple of years have been very tough for me, ending a 6yr LTR, ex getting married overnight, dating horrors, losing 40lbs, intense family issues, covid, major housing crisis, etc etc. I realized I've given up hope and become insanely negative. Last night had a break down and decided I'm gonna reboot again. Just looking for tips to keep this motivation going.
