Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’
Can’t wait for excuse #2292928272 as to why I’m not getting a promotion that I was promised months ago...
My wife setup an introductory meeting with a T2 strategy firm's managing partner. She doesn't work with him but has a friend who does, which is how this was setup. I'm trying to transition from implementation (10 years) to strategy so I really want to impress. What talking points and questions would you all recommend?
Customer Engineer offer in Austin around $225k TC for 4 YOE Base $130k Bonus $60k GSUs $140k Thoughts? This seems decent based on my research but couldn't find a ton of data points. What is the career trajectory/opportunity like is a Google CE? Opportunities to move to product later on or will I be heavily soloed within tech? How do refreshers work? For example at other tech companies I've heard only about 10% of a team might receive refreshers each year
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
Leaving for a new firm and the pay raise will mean that I’m above the contribution limits for both Traditional and Roth IRA’s. Where do I put my money now? (Already max 401(k)
Big 4 🐠 - how were promotion raises like this year compared to ‘normal’ years at your firm?

Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.
Can anyone tell me about vizient? Didn’t really know much about them but they’re offering me 33% raise in base from 150 to 200. Just randomly applied a few weeks back.
Points for New Years in Tremblant.. anyone ever stay at the Westin there? Thoughts / recs on alternate options for snowboarding trips ?
20k points for an overnight cancellation due to plane defect on American. Is that reasonable or can I ask for more?
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
Expecting a promotion at end of the year, and a pay bump. Is this mean no regular 2%-3% merit increase?
SPG fish... 166k points at St. Regis for deluxe room vs 75k points at Le Meridien? Going to Rome for a week and those two are my options... is St Regis worth blowing all my SPG points?
At what point did y’all let work know about pregnancy? Up for promotion this year want to get that promo which I’m cutting it close with yearly review.
What is your total comp and years of experience?
I can’t stand my client. I can’t stand my project. I can’t stand this job. My teammates are starting to get annoying. I need a break but I can’t afford to take a LOA and I have too much work to do to take a vacation. Yay me! Hope everyone else is having a great day :)
Does anyone at McKinsey have product management or Data Analytics opportunities? Manager at Big 4 and want to also understand what level I should aim at?McKinsey & Company
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it
Anyone know anything about PwC's culture? I just interviewed with a recruiter and they seem so tired that it brought down my mood.
Have a senior consultant offer from a Big 4 and a product manager offer from a pharmacy retailer (cvs, walgreens etc), but both are similar roles in digital PM/strategy. Which offer would be best to take to help me eventually exit to the tech industry in a similar role?
Seems that Fearless girl was made by unfair men. “It became the financial world’s most iconic symbol of gender equality and won 18 honors at the prestigious Cannes Lions, including four Grand Prix” http://www.adweek.com/agencies/financial-firm-behind-fearless-girl-will-pay-5-million-for-allegedly-underpaying-women-and-minorities/
It seems like the work life balance at MBB is always described as horrendous. But how does Bain keep receiving the number one best place to work per glassdoor? Heck, they received an award for best places to work for parents. Are they paying for that ranking? Is Bain really not that bad? Just seems to be some conflicting info.
How likely are you to get a job you interview for? At B4 they basically gave us offers if we had a pulse, what are the odds for industry jobs?
Any dangers of quitting on H1B approval email/online status and not the physical notice? Manager pushing to put my 2 weeks in but lawyers are saying that sometimes online approval maybe incorrect
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
Controversial take: if we can send young men and women to war...why can’t we have challenge trials for COVID that likely has a lower risk of death and larger positive impact than war
People who have made a job switch to another state in US (H1b transfer) in last 1+ years (since covid) with most companies being remote temporarily the Uscis rule that the employee should be in commutable distance from@office location within 30 days - how is this being taken care?
Anyone go off Mirena and just feel weird? I have been off for a week or so now and just feel off. Wondering if that is normal or if it’s just a side effect from covid exasperated with thinking that it could be a side effect from going off mirena..
