Have any of you got points for not being upgraded? JW last night apologized that they couldn’t upgrade me this week because they’re super booked. Then gave me 10k points. Didn’t ask for them. Neat!
All this inflation talk... Time to move 401k into bonds/stables for capital preservation yet? What's your take?
manager is toxic. always forces me to pick up other team's slack. Thinking whether I should quit the job or there is anything that I can do differently to keep me motivated.
So the Co-Chair of the Deloitte Black Action Council was not a Black woman but an Indian Woman who is now the Chief Diversity Officer. I feel a little duped and bamboozled. As a Black American this person does not share our history with slavery, Jim Crow, etc. I don’t think anything will come of this council. I wonder are black initiatives will become an all minority initiative. Is Black hiring going to increase. Will more blacks be considered for senior management up to partner positions
My firm’s support staff went through a shuffle and my former assistant got a promotion. I’m so happy for her, but was bummed to lose her as my day to day support. I was assigned a new legal assistant and we just are not vibing. Most recently, she changed my wording on something without asking. Has anyone dealt with this before? Any tips?
Deloitte 🐟 - how long do we have to work to earn the full 401k contribution? I heard it was 4 years.
For those who transferred cities while keeping (roughly) the same salary, how did it affect the size of your first post-move bonus if at all? I.e. does transferring midway through the performance year work against you?
Are banks in the US still requiring people to go into the office? My brother at JP Morgan in Sydney is still going in bc apparently they can’t WFH (something about no access to Bloomberg terminal 🙄)
Last week I received my green card after 10 years of wait. My employer and attorney asked me to send front and back photocopy of my card which I promptly did without thinking much. Is this normal for employer or attorney to ask? Should I be concerned?
I recently received an offer for an internship with technology consulting at PwC but am more interested in the management consulting for a career. Is there a process to switch after the internship for a full time career and if so what does it look like? Thank you!
What would you do if you were 29, single and public accounting makes sense for you on paper but you have more bad days than good? I don’t really like accounting, but excel in client management, staff training, amp is recruiting, etc. The firm I work for loves me but feel super lost as I’m not sure this is for me....I study doesn’t seem to be for me either tho. Any advice?
Is the grass always greener. I’m super happy in my current job. I like my coworkers, I get to do the projects that I want, and I have an all around good support network. I have also built my reputation up enough to the point where I have a lot of flexibility and can control how I work. But sometimes it bothers me knowing that I could leave and get a significant raise. Reading fishbowl it seems like everyone chases money regardless of how happy they are currently
27yo that left consulting to go into real estate private equity. After 2 years of experience had to start at the analyst level and took a small paycut. Have an offer to now re-join consulting with a much higher salary 30k more at least. My PERE firm is small and it’ll probably take me 2-3 years to make those 30k back. Am I overthinking or should i pursue the money when the end goal is to retire as early as possible?
Anyone else have a lingering fear that they could be fired at any moment? I’ve received great performance reviews and my partner says I’m doing very well, but I don’t vibe with my colleagues as well as it seems others do.
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx
Do you think Alvarez & Marsal will require employees to get a covid booster shot and/or seasonal flu shot?
How do I get Hilton to match my Marriott platinum elite status? I was just bounced around to like 4 different contacts and got nowhere
Any agency layoffs yet? (I obviously hope not. Just trying to get a sense of where agencies are sitting.)
At a boutique firm for just over a year, I know this isn’t the best place for my growth, but a promotion is coming. Am I better of sticking around or try to go to MBB or big 4 at an associate level?
