Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
How do you ask about WLB/hours per week in an interview? Do you just ask about culture and hope they talk about it?
Supremely generalized but is WLB best to worst A strategy > EYP > S& correct? Interviewing with all three and my priority is the least try hard culture with nice people
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
Evaluating an offer in Canada with Avanade base pay - 160k CAD, 6% annual bonus, 10k CAD sign on , location - Toronto. YoE - 11 years, already have a Canadian PR. Currently in the US employed with EY at 150k USD base, but on a H1B visa, GC EB3 PD 2019. Worth it? Avanade folks?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
How have people decided it was time to look at other firms? I like my firm just fine, but I don’t love it. I’m not sure if that means it’s time to look elsewhere or if it’s just a normal don’t love it like I wouldn’t love any job. I’m sure corona is playing a part too, just don’t love the culture, lack of transparency in what it takes to move up, lack of formal reviews, etc. I’m pretty junior and firm is ~100 attorneys for context

Bombed an interview for my dream job. I’m feeling so numb right now, and I can’t seem to process what just happened.
Why would a consultant in MBB switch to another MBB? Particularly between Mck and BCG. Outside looking in, they seem identical in experience and opps.
I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
Many of my colleagues that started with me have been laid off. Where should I start looking just in case. Key resume points: - TS/SCI + poly - Security+ - AWS CCP - PMP - want to stay in DC area
