How much does reapplying to a school you didn’t get into better your chances the second year…this being a hail Mary year for me, wanted to know if it shows growth/dedication should a promotion happen for me in the interim (HBS primarily)

🙋♂️Raise your hand if you think you’ve had COVID but never tested positive or tested positive for antibodies in the last 8 months.
Got passed up for a promotion and been emotional and frustrated. I'm trying very hard to not let it impact my work by my direct supervisor likely notices that I'm down and I've haven't been able to hide my feelings very well. It's all amplified by the pandemic struggles. I feel bad for being like this, it's been a few weeks and struggling to turn it around, and I know my supervisor shouldn't have to deal with this. Should I talk to them and apologize?
Wanted to wait until after promotion notification to bring up a transfer. How long to wait now so it doesn’t seem too obvious that was my reasoning? I have about five months before I need the transfer

First year level 9 (consultant) expecting to hear about pay raise this Wednesday (will be minimal) I am leaving the firm and new offer wants me to start on 11/26, should I ask to start 12/4 so I can..
The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
I’m going to be acting manager for 18 months before the official title promotion. Should I accept that as normal?

Has anyone leveraged an offer at another firm to get a raise at their current firm?

Still trying to recover from my crt convo a week ago -- feeling beyond dejected... I got a 4.. I feel like that's a gentle nudge to go -- this is a promotion year for me and seems like there is no way
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
There’s no better feeling than getting into a top 2 business school after being denied a promotion + being discriminated against in a toxic work environment (sorry for the humblebrag, just so excited to leave my job)
I just got promoted over a friend and I am really worried about how this will impact her. To be honest I think she is even more deserving of the promotion than me. What do I do to make it better so our friendship isn’t poisoned by this?
Should be getting a raise by the end of this month, I am definitely being underpaid, do I bring this up before or after I find out how much my raise is?
For those who did get promoted, esp. from Senior to Manager, how did you feel about your chances throughout the promotion year? Any signs at all or you are just in the dark until they tell you?
Congrats to all the folks that got promoted at PwC! And thank you fishbowl - I wouldn’t have known about PwC promotion time without you.

Moms, what is the standard etiquette and timing for your parents to come help out when you have a new born? I am due in April and we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment in NYC. Every one in the family wants to come to NYC and help when the baby is here and I’m grateful but I don’t want to get too overwhelmed trying to host people in this small space. I was thinking my parents could come for a couple weeks, leave and then my siblings can take turns? Thank you! Any advice will be appreciated
