For the past month, while I'm booked for 45 hrs, I'm only getting work of around 2-3 hrs from the onshore. Should I raise this issue and if yes, to whom? (It's my 5th month at gds)
How is the life in PWC SDC at Senior Associate 2 level? How is the Work and WLB? What are average yearly hikes and promotion period?
Need some insight — I’ve been talking to a guy who is pretty cool and we vibe well. It’s still early stages so nothing serious, but sometimes I can’t tell if he’s being self-centered in conversation or just trying to impress me. What are some indicators I should be looking for and is there a good way I can raise this with him? For context, he definitely expresses interest in me and my opinions, but he’s often one driving the conversations and we end up mostly talking about topics he brings up.
Hey there. When is it appropriate to ask for a raise? Provided, of course, that you're doing a solid job. Cheers!
Chances for HBS/GSB? URM, 3.8 engineering from large state school, 720 GMAT, will have 3 YOE in consulting and on track for manager promotion by the time of applying. I’d say ECs are ok, but recommendations are strong. Already took gmat twice and don’t think i can feasible raise my score to match the school averages.
Feeling very demotivated and used finding out I might very likely be passed for promotion this year. MBA from a top 10 school and honestly felt I was cream of the crop from a work perspective (contd)
Realizing I lowballed myself moving to a big city from a smaller one in terms of salary. Now I’m up for a promotion... but average salary for that is 40k more - do I dare ask?! Or am I screwed?
Would you leave to help a former manager you were close build out a new competency in a less prestigious firm? Promotion, higher pay, remote.
I have to be honest, I don’t care about a promotion or job growth. I just want to work pay my bills and enjoy life. I’m working on paying off debt. Anyone else feel like this?
New lvl 9 tech consultant with 4 years of Salesforce exp. with a base of 115k in C&M Been hearing that’s pretty high for my lvl and won’t be getting a raise anytime soon. Is this true?
Any single moms who raised boys? My first kid, I grew up as an only child with no brother, and really clueless as to how to raise a boy. I’d have an easier time with a girl since I kinda know how
11 years experienced joined as ast. Completing one year next month, When can i expect promotion and what is the process ?
I’ve been in an entry level position for 2.5 years. I am not pushing for promotion. If I’m hitting utilization targets, am I at risk of layoff from being in this role too long? I work for a huge firm
What’s the % pay bump you could expect after your first promotion in consulting out of UG (e.g. rank after analyst/associate/[insert starting rank])? Would 15% be average?
Has anyone addressed their ADHD with their boss directly? For example, I have a really hard time with long meetings. I can’t sit still and pay attention and I wonder if sharing this with my boss would be helpful or if it would raise red flags. Funny enough, my job is very detail oriented.
My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..

Hi Fishes. I am a 2013 batch IIM grad working in Kuwait. I am moving back to India for personal reasons. What would be the range of salary to consider? ( Don’t want to know the data points at extreme end)
I have an offer to start in a week but I haven't given any notice. I'm worried about making the jump and given the Covid19 I have the opportunity to work both - slight overlap. Should I ride both?
What do you want to do when you retire?
Just venting. I feel like a horrible mom. My daughter is 20 months old and she has been on and off low key sick (runny nose, no fever) for the past three months since daycare. She has been waking up screaming all hours of the night and I’m so tired I can’t handle it anymore. My husband has been so great with her and holding her all night as needed. Whenever I see him handling her crying so well, I feel like I’m the worst as I just want her to stop. Loud noise is too much. Always feel like
We are a family of 4- husband, myself and 2 boys. We flew to Miami and came back. Other than being in flight and at the airport where we double masked, we were all by ourselves avoiding crowded places. Once back, my son got a cold, cough and slight fever too. We went to urgent care and they took a covid test, awaiting results. Now I’m super anxious and scared and feel stupid for exposing my kids. Anyone else in the same position ? Looking for positive vibes.
Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
On pace for ~3750 billable hours this year. Worst three months of 17 year career. Send help plz
how the work culture in PWC kolkata SDC. I am joining as Senior Associate 2 (testing). YOE 9. Also do they increase on counter offer HR said would not be able to increase any amount.
Currently at B4 with 4 YOE (2 industry & 2 consulting). Interviewing for a Senior Knowledge Analyst at MBB. I enjoy consulting and would like to stay in the traditional consulting track to partner, at least for now. Is it possible to transition into the traditional track from the knowledge track once at MBB?
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
