Meeting with partner to discuss all these world events happening (minority background). Any good ideas/questions to raise awareness for my group?
Hey there. When is it appropriate to ask for a raise? Provided, of course, that you're doing a solid job. Cheers!
Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD. Also initiating an EB2 app. Should I try and move to a different Big4 firm if I can get a level bump? New EB2 app, PERM and I-140 approval (premium) might take a year. Will need 485j. Or should I just stay at Deloitte and try for the SM promotion, while waiting for my EB2 EAD? Current base: $183K, 12 YOE.
Currently an OCM Associate with 2.5 YOE in consulting & 1 YOE experience in sales and going up for promotion to SA in May/June. Received a Senior Consultant offer from Cognizant that puts TC about 35-40% higher than current TC. Has anyone worked in the OCM practice at Cognizant / have any thoughts about growth, current TC vs offer, etc?
So after this year’s raise I now make too much to contribute to my Roth IRA anymore (AGI <140k). For all you investment savy folks, what’s the next best strategy to invest my extra funds? Also, do I have to just leave my Roth alone until retirement now? Thanks!
Any additional responsibilities with promotion from Specialist to Project Delivery Manager? (E.g., coaching, sales, firm, etc.)
How do y’all figure out your career goals? My parents both had blue collar 9-5 jobs, not really promotion type jobs, so it’s tough for me to formulate exactly what I want out of this career. Tips?
I'm so fed up with the casual sexism of my mom. Last night, she was worried about my sister whose husband doesn't have "the same earning potential" as my brothers 1, 2, and 3, all named individually, so "she will always be poor". When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)
I got a Promotion from KPMG! 🎉 It was in my Promotions tab in Gmail, something about joining their audit team.
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.
What questions should I ask to try to gauge the value of the equity being offered by a late-stage startup (series D) about to raise a round and planning to IPO w/in 5 yrs? W/r/t value & dilution plz.
I am grateful for what I make. I made $5K/year pre-tax in my first job and currently make >30x. That doesn't mean I shouldn't be disappointed by my raise that doesn't even beat inflation.
Hello - got an offer from Deloitte but in the time since I had my phone screen, I got a pretty significant raise at my current firm. The D offer is at the midpoint of the range I gave - can I use this to negotiate higher?
I’ve seen some of my colleagues update their LinkedIn profile with their promotion. Is it too early for that?
If you’re killing it at your job, how much of a raise should you fight for during yearly reviews? I was thinking 13%, thoughts?
Faang PGM role or M at B4 (digital)? Both salaries are around 200k TC. One concern is being pigeonholed by going the Program Management route, not sure which has the better trajectory/ career path.
Keep your dogs from hopping into your Zoom calls. . . . . When I see that, I want to see more of the dog and less of the meeting. Also, it reminds me that I want a dog but my apartment won’t allow it. So it bums me out.
Part of me hopes that we have another lockdown as a result of the Omicron variant. So many lives have been lost, the virus has undoubtedly caused mental duress across the globe, and I’m fortunate to be in a position where a lockdown wouldn’t impact me as much as it would others (which I obviously acknowledge), but life truly slowed down and subconsciously there was a sense of comfort knowing I could take the time to work on myself without missing out on anything happening on the outside.
Got a job offer in San Fran and finding an apartment is god awful. Any tips SF people? 😓
Are you looking for a Senior who can act as a work stream coordinator across Payroll, Absence/TT and Comp? I’m certified in all but TT. Looking to coordinate these work streams and Lead Absence.
1. Do all partners at same level pull same base salary? (Think two 3rd year partners at the same firm, and exclude variable pay) 2. How does this base pay differ at big 4 vs MBB?
Does ey gds only open salary accounts with HDFC? Or can we request for other bank accounts? This is so weird
Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.
Cheers to reporting red on our project today!

do you ask to know the salary of a job during the first interview or do you go through the whole process (could be 2 total interviews, could be 5) to ask? The interview process is such a mental and time drain that I honestly don’t even want to go through it unless I know the salary is something Im interested in.
Steven Yeun starred in a movie titled Minari - about Korean American first generation immigrants (and the second generation child) settling in rural America. Not sure if it is released yet but the preview seemed very interesting. I thought it was more interesting because they did not choose the coastal areas for this movie.
401k advice requested - 25 years old, live in nyc, make 125k. I’ve always maxed my 401k to 19500 with a split of regular and roth. Always do the 6k of Roth IRA too. New firm has no matching policy. I understand the benefits of tax so maxing it is beneficial, however, I’m almost breaking even each month. Is it smart to slow the contributions, keep investing myself so I will have money for a down payment down the road? Don’t want to pull on my 401k if not needed
How do you all make connections with team members in different offices or who are remote? Any tips besides Skype or more phone chats or ideas for bonding activities like team drinks?
