Can you choose your what city is your work location at Deloitte?e.g. if you live in New Jersey but work out of New York, can you set the NJ office as your home location for commuting/expense purposes?
Anyone at Guidehouse know if they reimburse CPE required for certifications? Such as for CPA, etc. as well as any membership fees?
PWCs new expense system is awful.
Does bcg reimburse expenses for CFA? Would take the test once I joined but don’t start until new year
Fishbowl pro tip: When you tap comment field it takes you right to end of a thread. Can prevent tons of scrolling, eg in the Deloitte $56k expense thread.
Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Small firm reached out to coordinate a potential part time or per diem role and they wanted to coordinate an in person interview about a week and a half ago noting that it's phase 2 and they are in office...would have been a 40 min subway right and then no clue if masks would have been honored. Was it wrong to say Sorry don't feel comfortable?
Does USCIS prohibit the individual from paying all expense related to GC filing like the h1b filing fees?
I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?
Why does it feel like all agencies are either totally award obsessed or business obsessed. Is there no agency that can exist with those two working hand in hand? Why must one always come at the expense of the other. Am I just jaded? Idk tbh
New hire question - if I didn't submit expenses before that expense cut off date is there any bad consequence?
Former Accenture to Deloitte or Deloitte to Accenture folks. At Deloitte, we’re pretty lenient on what we can get away with expense wise. How does the expense policy at Accenture compare?
300k/yr combined income (before tax, assuming no bonus), 900k debt in two properties (the main one 620k, rental property $280k). 16 months of reserving fund in case we both lose jobs and no one rents the rental property. Worried about the economy downturn, debating whether to sell the rental properties. Thanks for the advice.
Is your company doing annual raises this year? If so, what’s the typical annual raise (%)?
8 years for me. What lessons did you learn from dating around? For how long? https://youtu.be/BkV_g9BGk1U
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)
FTM here and my baby will start daycare soon. Daycare asked us to prepare all the bottles on a daily basis. Between all the bottles and my pumping parts, it sounds like an absolute nightmare in terms of cleaning. Is there an easier way to do this besides running the dishwasher daily?
What time do you moms wake up on weekends? Having major guilt about not being up before my son getting stuff done. (Single parent)
Am I a byach? Grandmother and father put the 4 year olds in seats B and C next to me in A, and refuse to split up so that an adult is sitting with each. Asked and answered: "They're good boys." IHML.
New travel project in ATL - any team dinner recommendations? Near old fourth ward area. Thanks!
What are the hours like in BCG Digital Ventures, also is it mainly working out of studio/office in normal times or was there client travel?
Can I afford a 2k rent stabilized luxury studio on a 75k salary? Trying to justify rent since it’s in midtown west😭
Just realized I've spent years working to get my promotion. Now that I got it, I'm alone, tired and can't find a suitable partner. I don't do the apps. Work too much to have a social circle, and...
Hi 🐠 fam - I have final round interviews with the VP/SVPs of the function (Skip level interviews). What are some good questions to ask when you're interviewing with leaders at this level? Thank you!!
Anyone use Google Classroom on tablets? And for 2nd grade math? Looking for ideas on how to save copies but I only have tablets
Hello! Sorry I have no idea how this work but I have a cousin that lives in another country and she is an accounting major and very smart. How can pwc offer her an internship/ job? Is that possible?
Asking for a friend. At what stage during the process of moving jobs did you reveal to your potential employer that you were pregnant? My friend is 4 months pregnant (not showing) and has her first zoom call interview tomorrow. Should she reveal her pregnancy from the get go? Or wait till the second round of interview? Or when she ends up getting the offer letter? Her current place of work has a three month notice period and the law in her country gives her a three month maternal leave.
I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
