Front row. Empty middle seat. Heading back home. Promotion confirmed. Cheers everyone 🥃
Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
Guess who makes me feel better after a rough day at school... my dog :) Thank goodness for our fur babies! Raise your hand if you agree!
Anybody been offered a promotion with no corresponding pay rise? I assumed that was impossible but am worried that may be what's on offer. Surely not??!
Is it an issue if I’ve never been internally promoted? Started at B4, left at 1.75 years (was green lighted for promotion but left before it took effect) to MBB (entry level) but haven’t received a promotion yet there and won’t until after I submit my apps.
Any tips on asking for a pay raise? Ive been working so hard and getting great feedback... but struggling so much to afford daycare and all of our normal expenses while still trying to save.
Hi Ladies, What are some ways you’ve positioned yourself to obtain a promotion? Just looking for examples if you have any❤️
I went to my boss at work and said, "I need a raise. Three other companies are after me." He said, "Really? Which other companies are after you?" I said, "The electric, water and gas companies"
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
Gah I secretly hate work events that are "casual" dress (in this case chicago promotion day) I never know what to wear. Why can't everything just be business casual it keeps things simple 😬
Need advice. Currently at a top boutique. Fun firm, weak pipeline and 12 - 18 months from promotion. Received offer at a smaller firm focused on interim management for hospitals for 33% more TC. Less brand name, would get more experience managing people at a hospital. Do I jump?
Thoughts on giving yourself a promotion to a CD when you start freelancing if you where long due for a promotion anyway?
If you knew you were getting promoted and you think your company will offer a 10% raise but the market rate is probably closer to 20-25% raise, how would you go about it?
As a high performing Tax Senior 2 in financial services, at what % pay raise would you consider switching to industry? I’m asking this cause I don’t even feel comfortable negotiating for this much salary (current + 15%) since there will be so much to learn at the new job. But maybe just impostor syndrome?
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
I see plenty of people go for a walk during the day, yet I hardly see any of my EY teammates appear “away” for 15/20+ minutes. I recognize that not everyone is in consulting, but can’t imagine that *none* of those walking are. Asking as a relative newcomer to the workforce: Is it acceptable to be away from work for more than just a few minutes, regardless of industry? If so, how can I feel comfortable stepping away to prioritize my health and well-being when so few of my teammates do so?

How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
Does anyone have any study tips or can suggest a helpful study tool for the HRCI SPHR exam? I used BenchPrepHR to help me prep and took a few practice test. I took my exam last week and unfortunately did not pass. Any tips would be helpful to help me prepare to retake in a few months.

But since this firm is pretty small and setting up new operations in India, little hesitant. What do you think fishes ?

Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.
Naive question. What does it really mean when a recruiter says “[company] is keeping you in view for next year”. The original position was for this year.
