What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...? I can’t imagine working my life away for client demands in a fast paced environment for the long term. Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢
Used to do financial analysis/special project work at a bank but switched to management consulting so I could work on interesting projects. However, now I’m doing project/program management work with nothing finance-related in sight…. Looking to exit into a finance/ops/strategy role, anyone make that move recently?
Anyone deal w/ having too many cooks in the kitchen? I get tired of so many rounds of feedback & people having differing opinions. How to keep your head up when it happens on almost every project? 😅

As an SA, been hooking up with a Manager in my office / group. Not on same project and we have good chemistry. Anybody ever been in same situation?
So how many points did they give you?
Hi all! Do you ever discuss bonuses and annual raises during your end of year review in a large lockstep firm? Do you ever even get a chance to discuss your bonus directly or is it a discretionary decision which follows your end of year review, during which you highlight your achievements? I was told that the bonus structure cannot be shared and that it’s discretionary, but I also want to stop being shy and awkward when it comes to $$$ and ask for what I want and deserve
Does anyone know if the 60-day rollover rule applies to Pension rollover even if you want to transfer it to an IRA account? I moved apartments when the pension packet got delivered and I didn’t get it until a month past the 60-day duration. Now I’m seeing that if you send a letter to the IRS to request an exemption there’s some $10k user fees..? I’m so confused. Is there no way to move the money to an IRA now?

New to Fishbowl, currently working on a career pivot! I graduated in May with my MBA and have experience as a Director of Operations as well as recruiting and HR experience. I am looking to move more into Change/Project Management or Director of People Operations roles. I have been at the application game now for two months with only two interviews and over 20 applications sent out each week. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Feeing a little defeated over here. Thank you!
Just realized the only reason I'm staying at my job is for the health insurance, which isn't even that good.
Can I leave my wife off the mortgage application? The reason I ask is she's currently not working at the moment (specialized nurse that finally had enough with COVID) but still has student loans. Trying to find ways to improve our DTI. Edit: Just saw someone ask something similar in the consulting bowl. I am not that person. On just my income, we're looking to be under 36% DTI.
Any restrictions on baggage allowance if you book your ticket with reward miles for American ? I am platinum. Just learnt last week that upgrade was not possible because I booked through points.
What is the process for paying back your sign on bonus. Thinking about leaving Big 4 within clawback period and would like to hear perspectives/advice
I am hoping for some advice. I was a young mom (17 when pregnant) and ended up having three kids by 23. I’ve since pulled myself up by my boot straps and am doing well in my career and have seen good trajectory. The thing is, it’s always nagged at me that I never went to college. I don’t want to go to college in the traditional sense but my new employer offers some tuition reimbursement (if related to the job). I’m in tech, specifically software. What should I look into?

Tip for young ones looking to go to BSchool. Put all your money in traditional 401k. Then when you go to bschool, and have zero wages for that year (maybe the internship), convert to Roth with very low income tax. Tax arbitrage right there! 💸💸💸
