Does anyone else feel unfulfilled in their job, but you’ve decided to stick it out because of the COVID market?
I left the industry for a year in my mid 20s and for 5 years in my early 30s. Now I’m back with the same title and a little higher salary than I left with 🤣
Given the COVID situation: for someone traveling back to their home country. What is the best way to get out to EWR? I would guess yellow-cab, as they at least have the plastic separator? Thoughts?
F / 32 / NYC / 115K. Curious if people think my title seems low for the salary and years of experience. There are others with my title in their early 20s, I believe making quite a bit less.
Hi all, any clue on how much time do PwC India HRs usually take to come back with a final number after compensation discussion. PwC
I know someone talked about it earlier but I’m going to be a mid year promoted S1 making almost 96k a year. Then comes May I’ll be promoted to S2 making I would assume 105k. All the roles I have been offered in industry are offering only a max of 110k that I’ve seen. I only have 2 YOE starting in January. Am I being money hungry or should I expect more? I know people always said when you leave public as a senior to look for a jump of 20-30% in salary. I am in a HCOL btw PwC EY KPMG Deloitte
Covid is affecting my meme skills.
What’s the minimum % increase you’d take for a new role that’s a level up? Of course not talking promotion.

I am thinking of switching to some other firm. How much hike % should i ask for a company like KPMG or ZS?

Has anyone worked in a firm with “non-traditional” compensation structure ? I.e. you get paid by the billable hour not a salary with minimum expected billable hours. Pros/cons? I like the concept but all concerned about if I need to take time (single mom here with two elementary school-aged kids)
Looking to get out of public accounting and applied for a Staff Accountant position. The company is known for having a great culture and I’m thinking the schedule will be much better. I’m thinking the compensation will be similar in the new position as what I’m making now so I wouldn’t be getting the normal jump in pay people expect when leaving public accounting. If I were to be offered the position, should I take it? Should I expect a better position if I’m looking for an accounting type role?

I’ve just started at a new job, where my manager seems to be clueless. Things get approved by her, but then I get into trouble with HER manager. When this happens, my direct manager doesn’t step in, and I have to explain myself. This has forced me to constantly go above her to the next manager directly, which is frustrating and uncomfortable. Communicating with my direct manager hasn’t changed anything. For those who’ve been in a similar boat, any advice?
Good homes in our area keep going for bout 550k plus additional enticements (like paid all cash or waived appraisals) when they're listed at $510k. There's a way overpriced house on market at $560k that I think is worth $500k since it needs $20k out of pocket (it has no interest Bc overpriced, has been on market months) . Does anyone have experience putting in an offer way below listing or advice?
