Is anyone else upset by how much we lose from our paychecks to taxes?? I calculated it out and it’s like 20% of mine. Why give people stimulus checks when you could just have everyone pay less in taxes.
Do you negotiate your salary every year? What is the cadence for your raises/promotion discussion?
I’ve been offered an exciting role with Accenture, I have the contract sitting in my inbox to be signed, but my current employer KPMG are offering me a retention bonus and are guaranteeing me promotion next June/July. Could it be worth calling recruitment at Accenture to explain the situation and ask if they can do anything else for me, ie a sign on bonus… or at least to ask more questions around career progression etc? Could they reneg? I’m really stuck and can’t decide.
I want to try for a baby next year but am worried about the expense of a child, eps. living in Manhattan. Is it a thing to ask for a raise in this situation? (Cont.)
I consider myself a gen xer. I feel that in the past, longevity and loyalty to a company was the trend. Now, i see ppl with resumes and they stay for less than a year in a job and change jobs constantly. The younger generation and are so eager to move up the ladder. I wonder if the move up is too fast and is really justified. Or perhaps the younger generation feels a lot more entitled and are more aggressive. Thoughts?
I'm at a T2 firm and on track for promotion to Manager (post-MBA level) this year but have gotten an offer for sales & ops at FAANG for a senior analyst role. For total comp, the manager role would probably be 10% higher compared to FAANG role. What would you do?
People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?
The difference between what you thought your raise was going to be and what it actually was

Hi all, negotiating with HR on salary for a new AS position and want to know what’s fair. I was an AE for two years, took a promotion at another agency for SAE for only 8 months and am now being recruited for AS at 80k. All of my agencies have been large, I’ve worked on pharma and a large global account, I also started “managing” at the AE level due to my team’s structure. Is $80k fair? Thanks!

Just got a huge offer from a start up! 300k base. I heard RECESSION starts in July 2022, does it make sense to keep my 150 K job at Accenture and reject the offer? Don’t want to risk getting fired from start up. Please share some advice. I heard it on the news today, Nasdaq is at a 14 year low

We shouldn't laugh at PwC, none of us would have done any better: Deloitte would be back at the office congratulating each other and forget about the envelope, EY would have never gotten there...
