Can you get a raise and promotion out of cycle?
Just wanted to remind my fellow creatives that agencies need us more than we need them. It’s important to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to speak up, push back, ask for a raise, ask for time off or quit. The value we bring to the table is fundamental, very hard to replace and is often overlooked by us and leadership. Agencies everywhere are in overdrive mode and creatives are being overworked to keep the engine moving. Make sure you’re compensated properly for it.
How do you have the "I deserve a raise" conversation? Especially when you asked for a certain amount upon signing, and that amount was not initially met but was to be reviewed after the 1st Yr.?
Hi! I need your help in raising awareness about all of the recent attacks against the Asian community, especially amongst our elders. An 84 yr old Thai man was pushed and died while walking in his neighborhood. A 91 yr old man was also pushed to the ground in Oakland. A Filipino man was slashed in the face in NY and a Viet grandma was attacked in San Jose. These are only some of the stories, and no one is talking about it. I’m begging you to speak out in your communities to raise awareness.
Have an offer from another company at 22% But heard from CC, SM, MD that I’m being considered for mid year promotion. Should I stall other offer? If so, when are mid-year promos usually announced?
Starting a discussion about a promotion and pu bump. I have done was asked by my old boss and had an underperforming direct report. I still accomplished my tasks and helped our corporate team particularly with data analysis for most of last year, and working with a new boss. My new boss seems hesitant about promoting another person in my team. How can I make a strong case without making the aforementioned barriers seems like excuses?
Does EY do early promotion?
Public finance IB analyst here - since our group is technically part of sales & trading, we weren’t given the same junior bankers raise that the rest were given. Seems pretty unfair imo, does anyone know if this is the same at all firms?
Does anyone know timeframe for when do year end review cycles and promotion discussions start for OTS?

I am 24 years old and the advice I have been given is to max out my IRA and 401k before investing into a taxable brokerage account. If I do not plan on working until I am 59 1/2, is this sound advice since there is a 10% penalty of early withdrawals for both accounts?
To all my SDRs/AEs/AMs/BDRs that are out there, I’m running an experiment that I’ve never seen before: Have you ever worked together with a teammate to close your company’s deals? I’m talking start to finish of sales process, from cold call to closed booking. I’m curious to know if folks always tackle calls by themselves, particularly intro calls, and beyond. Obviously there has to be a handoff at some point, but where is that inflection point? Trust is probably THE most important rapport

My wife makes 112k and I make 70k in NYC. She plans to go to law school in 18 months. She is very smart and so I believe she will get a scholarship. But assuming worst case scenario, we will take on debt to pay tuition (180k). My question is should we still fund our Roth 401k this year as we have in the past or stop funding it to save for Law school to decrease student loans? I believe post law school she will make 200k (big law) and I should be at around 100k.
In the final round of interview with a San Fran startup that’s about to go IPO... but I know I’d be also giving up lots of the structures & project flexibility & diversity offered here at big 4. What rationale would you use to make a decision?
