How do you respond to pushy HR people/ recruiters who ask your salary req in the first 5 mins?
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
I know that it likely “depends” and varies from firm to firm but does anyone have any insight on (or experience with) whether firms rely on “total billable hours” or “total billable hours credit” to determine whether hours have been met/bonus applies?
With 2 year post MBA experience at MBB, which level and how much comp should I target for a Strategy and Ops role?
PwC folks! Just curious… are you leaving the firm after you get your bonus this week? Not just thinking about leaving but actually putting in your 2 weeks.
So I am looking at data from Levels.fyi and the comp for Lyft devs is MASSIVE but I haven't seen any of it!
Any ACN DXB 🐠 able/ willing to share SM TC ballpark range in S&C please? (Base + bonus). TIA 🙏
Do all FAANG companies offer a joining bonus?
Hello Fishes, Can you please share your best salary negotiation tips? In India, it’s such a common norm to pay on current even if you are grossly underpaid. Thanks.
Not sure if there are many Europeans on here but does anyone have an idea what a decent salary for an entry-level strategist in Germany would be?
Gar nichts los in DE? 🧐 Wollte mich mal mit anderen Consultants über Gehälter unterhalten. In welchem Feld und welcher Karrierestufe seid Ihr unterwegs, und wie hoch ist euer (Ziel-)Gehalt? Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?
HELP NEEDED: Just got offer for Deloitte HC as SC. I'm from a target MBA with a little over a year in consulting. What's the comp of a second year SC? Want to benchmark offer
End goal in PE career? Let’s say you make it to MD at UMM shop. How is comp compared to let’s say F500 C-suite? I’d imagine both to be 10 - 30M, but a cushier rise in F500. Am I wrong? Just trying to figure out this giant rush by so many colleagues to the buy-side
Just finished my 3-day orientation for Wilson (for the 2nd time 🙄) and my district is finally paying for me to do the Level 1 certification this school year! I’m very excited but a little nervous about how I’m going to get a student 1:1 for at least 45 minutes? My caseload is already 22…
How did I just spend $70 at the bar at ORD?
How do you make snowboarding trips more affordable? First timer and can drive to mammoth/lake tahoe so that saves on airfare, but b/w just the 2.5hr lesson, gear rental, clothing rental, and 3 day lift tickets, that’s $1000 alone. I wanna do it before my body can’t handle an activity like that (I have patellar tendonitis, herniated disc) but man, this trip is costing more than half of what I predict one of our Euro trips next year will cost. No wonder I never went growing up 😔
Hey hey all you lovely people, hope you're excited for the weekend! So this question's for a friend- would anybody have an insight on entry level MBB/T2 consultant salaries in Dubai/the Middle East? I've been told that the numbers on Glassdoor are outdated, is that true?
Parents, what are you doing for college funds? I want to start saving for my kid and don't know where to start. Do you recommend a bank over the others for this matter?
Lesson plans. What do yours look like? I feel like it’s a waste of time to rewrite what I’m doing from the actual lessons. I mean aren’t the learning targets, success criteria, and formative and summarize assessments built right in?
At family reunion and playing Monopoly Deal (first to $1M wins) with younger cousins. Crushed them. Teaching life lessons. 👌
Hi, I got selected in wipro. I have worked in 3 organization till now. So in my first organization my last working day was 23rd oct 2017 and for my 2 nd organization my joining date is 25 sept 2017....these dates are overlapping because my 1st organization had vacation concept(bench without pay)..... So i served notice period there and my second organization asked me join immediately. Will this overlapping affect my bgv in wipro? Everything is genuine. Any suggestions?
When it comes to LinkedIn connections with clients, do you usually send them a request after a project or wait and see if they connect with you?
My company expects me to work over 12 hours a day and I’m being asked to work the weekend constantly. Its making me extremely frustrated as I feel my labor is being exploited. Is it like this at other agencies? Has anyone made the switch to client side?
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.
Looking to create a tool we can use for stakeholder relationship tracking. We want to be able to hear a clients name, look them up in the tool, see info about their role and department, and see which of our consultants have worked with them before and on what projects. Trying to think of an easy to use, interactive tool beyond something like excel. What’s something you’ve used for this before? Don’t think we’ll be going as far as purchasing a license for a CRM software
