When you get back to the office after 9 days away, have that vacation glow, and the first thing your PM says to you is, “welcome back, this week is going to suuuuuck!!”
Starting salary for a 1st year associate at PwC?
Can someone help with the base salary range for a 6+ years experienced finance professional with FRM and CFA certifications in Big 6 firms in Advisory practice? Also, what should be the expectations for joining bonus during the current times?
Ever since Risk Assurance busy season ended, I feel like I’ve been kind of coasting. I’m still getting all my work done but my utilization is slipping. With CRTs coming up, how worried should I be?
Partner community, it’s interesting to see so much opacity and variation around partner comp...for the benefit of the community at large, do you mind sharing;￼ (1) company, (2) Years as Partner / Equivalent, (3) cash comp (base + bonus) and (4) % Commission? Fully understand that “commission” is not the standard by any means but if you could express your comp beyond cash as % of revenue sold, I think we can cut through the noise a bit. TIA!
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
Have offer at interesting late stage startup, 135k base 15k bonus and approx 20-25k in stock grants annually. Feels a bit on the low side but it's a decent raise in any case (7 years consulting xp plus MBA). Worth negotiating for 5-10k more in base?
Hello fishes, How is the yearly hike, WLB, promotions in NTT data. HR mentioned there is no variable bonus in the company. How is the growth for SAP? Deloitte 9.5 + 10 % bonus. NTT data 11.2 fixed no bonus. YEO- 4+
How do I say to my counselor, "be prepared to see a big fall of my utilization because of things out of my control" without sounding like complaining or having a lot of negativity?
I love this group. For those that receive company equity as part of their comp, what’s your strategy? Do you immediately sell it all and put the cash into index funds?
People in luxury buildings - do you also give a holiday gift to the rest of the staff? I’m mainly talking the people who may come in to fix things or for example the guy who mops the lobby every few days?
Attending work events while on leave: Hey 🐠 - is there a consensus on whether or not to attend events like the office holiday party while on a LOA like Parental leave? Is it weird?
Is utilization low in most firms right now? Is it efficiency that is causing this or a slow downturn in the economy causing businesses to close?
If you apply for a remote position, will they adjust your salary based on where you live?
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
If you bought ADO additional time off and quit before you use it do you get it paid back?
About sixth months post partum and I am so unbelievably tired all the time. Baby sleeps through the night yet somehow I am exhausted to the point of lying in bed all weekend while...
Late flight and Uber driver leaves with my luggage. Chase his car. Another car honks. Both to no avail. Now late. Suitcase has work clothes for tmrw. Working on getting bag back now. Lesson learned.
A recruiter reached out to me about a Senior Strategic Designer role at BCG Digital Ventures. Any tips on what they’re looking for? I have to send my CV Friday AM.
Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?
i was laid off yesterday and only have 5 months of associate producer experience. anyone know of anyone hiring entry level production positions around chicago?
So I got a new contract working remotely. No guarantee it will get renewed come December. However I'm tired of living in DC thinking about renting an air bnb in atl for a lil bit but unsure if I want to give up my apartment I have a 1 bed room den for 2100 900 sq ft which is unheard of. However the wharf area can get dangerous what should I do. Wait it out?

Going to San Diego for alt weekend. Any recommendations? Have no particular agenda and open to doing anything.
Is this the week I get laid off?
PWCs new expense system is awful.
I’m on a team that works 12-14 hour days but expects us not to expense dinner because of the budget. What would you do? Obviously firm policy states we can, but does that look bad?
Regarding the politicalization of COVID, this opinion was shares somewhere else and felt compelling enough to discuss…..The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of (Cont.)
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
