Any recommendations for a private cook in Cabo San Lucas? Looking for good simple fresh Mexican food for 3 dinners and 2 lunches for 6 adults in our penthouse kitchen. Prefer this over going out to eat given we will have a full kitchen.

Does Big 4 or Accenture pay year end bonuses at any level? And if yes, how big are they typically at each level?
My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.
Have BCG interviews coming up. Would love to practice cases with anyone else in a similar position
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
If you expensed a charge and then later realize it was billed wrong so you get it refunded by the vendor. Meanwhile the expense report is already paid by the firm do you pocket it or fess up?
For those that have joint account with your spouse how do you fund that account monthly? Wondering if a recurring monthly transfer from my salary account to the joint account is a questionable move? Also, what is a ballpark monthly estimate outside of mortgage payment. Any suggestions? Recently living in and trying to figure out expenses
Client mentioned they were trying to internalize me and my team after project end. Has anyone ever had this happened to them / how did you go about it? Are there legality issues in our contract I should be careful of or after contract is up - I am ok?
Hi Fishes, Accenture has openings in their mobilization team under the ops division. I have been offered a role at CL9 with fixed component of around 15 LPA. I have 5.5 YOE. The offer is approximately a 100% hike on my previous salary however i was able to negotiate on my current offers from from EY and FSL (both less than Accenture offer). Is the HR lowballing me and would you have any feedback for the mobilization team. Thanks
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
What does compensation look like at the Partner/MD level? I know this varies, but interested to know at Big4, MBB, Public firms (Accenture/IBM), boutique consulting. Wondering if staying for the long run is worth it
PwC field for my extension in June 2019. At that time my I-140 wasn’t approved and since I was maxing out on H1B they have applied extension till Feb 2020 (Max Out Period). Continued...
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
