I have a 3 day headache from trying to meet crazy fucking 2 day reactive deadlines... Bc all of a sudden our client is walking all over us and client management is MIA
Anyone get blazed with their client?
Currently staffed on an extremely technical project. So I record the meetings and then re-watch it to capture all the important points. Any tips on how I can do this simultaneously during the call or fine tune my process so I don’t have to spend hours on the recordings?
People who have client/ team calls should consider getting a room!! Woman behind me on phone since 45 mins & yapping non stop! 😡😡😡 No courtesy or respect for others!! Wonder if I can report her!!
TC consulting: reason why I like strategy projects better than implementations- once you are done with the proj you hand over the decks to client and leave. In implementation projs im always asked...
How would u charge ur time when ur waiting for a team member to get back to u on a client question? Is that chargeable?
Hey just curious what’s some of the best briefs? Now is the time to brag!!! Client, problem, and catalyst idea. Shoot.
The partner is MIA and I’ve decided to email the client directly. Hope he doesn’t kill me
Been crying at least twice a day on this new project. It’s been a month of bullying (but hey, you’re the new kid, we’re just joking, that’s how we roll). It sucks SO much.
AITA - In September, I started seeing this girl casually and lately, things have started getting a little serious (we are exclusive). I don’t spend any time physically with my friends since covid started and have limited contact with my folks (they are old with pre-existing conditions). I focus on my client work and only spend my free time with her. She spends every weekend out with friends (despite my concerns, but she says she needs to go out and maintain her social life).
Would you rather stay in a niche that you’ve been doing well in, but you happen to find not too interesting, or try new areas and risk not doing as well? Ive been in pharma analytics for the last 4 years, receive good client feedback, good raises / promotion and have learned a lot. But I’m not sure if I want to continue in pharma long term.
How/when to ask for a pay raise? Is it okay to ask for a pay raise after working for one year, if so how much should I ask? Details inside
I got a fat raise and promotion this year but that hasn’t cured my depression. Considering leaving and a paycut to just make it to next year alive.
what are ACD and CD salaries at BBDO and other Nyc agencies? Having trouble getting a raise inside my agency and other agencies are offering way more. Don’t wanna leave my agency if possible
Percentage wise, what is a typical bump for a promotion? Will soon be an associate (on the buy side)
Do any of you work on a project with mostly older, more experienced men and have a hard time being heard? If so, how have you crossed this barrier?
Analysts and Associates. Don't wear a backpack to the office and don't bring one to client meetings. And by all means don't play Pokemon Go when I see you. It's cute for about three seconds...
I do like the work..but I know I’ll be paid atleast 35K more if I leave..and not sure if the next promotion will happen sooner than 3 years..leave or stay? Don’t have much partner or leadership support but not in a bad book as well
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!
For anyone that needs a laugh - I’m trying to baby wear my infant son more, but he has the worst gas. It’s like being strapped to a skunk! 😳😂
Hanging out with a Deloitter tonight. He's happy with his comp and not a douche. #datapoint
Hi! Has anyone completed the diversity and inclusion certificate online through Cornell university? Thoughts? Worth it? Helpful in your career? Thanks!!
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Does anyone regret not choosing a more lucrative career? A few friends in PE are making close to half a million a year, and I can’t say I’m not jealous making just over $100K 😖. I recognize that I still make a decent salary, but maybe I should have toughed it out in banking/PE instead?
Hey fellow travel 🐠, if you haven’t checked it out yet, www.airhelp.com, you should...can bag you reimbursements for airline travel issues...pretty cool
If my goal is to earn as much as I can (with a grain of salt) but may be moving to other countries in the next 20 years (29F now), what should be my priority to max out? 1. Pre tax 401k 2. Roth IRA 3. HSA 4. Personal stocks 5. Bitcoin
Anyone else still extremely fatigued weeks after COVID symptoms? I’m still sleeping 10+ hours a day with low energy throughout. Need naps and feel faint a lot.
Couple financial questions: 1) what do you do with your 401k when you quit? 2) if you go to grad school and come back above the income limit for Roth IRA, do you leave it where it is to grow?
Why are all the recruiters ghosting me? I have good experience in a skillset that they are recruiting for and (what in my opinion is) a reasonably good resume. Any tips?
Hi All. I am a Mom-to-be. Have ample of time to plan for the arrival. Looking to learn from the experiences of new parents here. Please share your experiences around: 1. Support system at home (during and after maternity leave) 2. Joining the workforce back after maternity leave. I have frequently seen women change companies after maternity leave. What changes at workplace?
Best books to understand all parts of the banks? - compliance, operations, risk management, trading settlement, etc.
Does anyone have recruiter contacts in San Fran?
Here’s a perfect example of totalitarianism, from an unelected official no less. You give them a finger, they’ll take the whole arm (and other organs if you’re below a certain age, but let’s leave that discussion for another day. Background: military, medical kept losing my record, received multiple doses of the same thing over and over, even the dreaded Anthrax series. This isn’t about the vaccine or preventing anything, this is about abuse of power and authority.
Anyone know how to update the settings on IOS Skype for business so the app doesn’t continuously log you out after changing applications? Any recommendations?
