Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
How long does it take EY FSO Advisory to provide interview feedback? I believe I had my final round on Monday and haven’t heard back yet. They also updated the job posting date. Bad sign?
Should I reach out to the recruiter for the final offer? I got an email from recruiter last week saying they would like to initiate the offer process and asked my salary expectation. I replied with my answers but haven’t heard back since then. Should I reach out? Or that might impact my negotiating position for pay.
New to Deloitte, How is the promotion path defined to go from Solution Specialist(SS) to senior SS? Eg. how many years in SS should we work before asking/making our promotion case for SSS
This attachable monitor is such a game changer. Friday’s will be working from bed days. In normal days I still use it and also plug my main monitor. Send pictures of other setups you have.
The BEACH or the BENCH? 🤔
I’m wondering from those who have moved from account to strategy how you’ve liked it and what were your motivations, pros and cons of the jump and what you think about the trajectory of your career and salary now. The head of strategy at my agency recently said I could be on her team and I’m extremely intrigued but surprised as I just always thought I’d be on the account side since I do so well there.
Deloitte: Anyone know what percentage of 2nd year consultants made it to senior consultant this year? Unsure if I will be able to grow at the firm due to lack of promotion and impacted utilization due to Covid.
Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
Anyone send out a meeting agenda ahead of a new client meeting? includes bios of all staff, risk/time questions, map of office, firm history, etc? Try to eliminate most of the unknowns ahead of time.
At Slalom Consulting or any BIG4, how does the comp during the promotions work? Let’s say I’m getting promoted from Consultant -> Sr.Consultant Is the hike fixed by the higher management or is it up for negotiation?! Thankyou!Slalom Consulting
Fresh NPR article from 4 hours ago about this. Seems like its happening. Anyone knows the impact of this on H1B transfers from 1 employer to another? While in the US. I know its a very specific question we probably dont know the answer yet but just curious if anyone has any thoughts. https://www.npr.org/2020/06/20/881245867/trump-expected-to-suspend-h-1b-other-visas-until-end-of-year?utm_term=nprnews&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_source=facebook.com
Does EY do early promotion?
Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
Anyone at Guidehouse know if they reimburse CPE required for certifications? Such as for CPA, etc. as well as any membership fees?
Remote work- Day 1, Hour 2: As an extrovert, I am going to die with no people contact! Maybe I can teach my cat to talk 🐱
What are expected utilisation rates for entry level consultants? Been here 9 months and only done billable work for about 3 months of that. Bored out of my mind for the majority of my time here.
