My monstera is finally upgrading to hole-y leaves!
Hello Fishes! Can anyone refer me?
I am currently working as a business Analyst (data analyst) in Genpact. My current package is 5.0 lakhs (severly under paid).
I have an overall work experience of 6 years.
My expectation is 12 lakhs plus.
It's weird, being here and knowing that not only am I just days from departure from this agency, but that this is how my fifteen-year agency career ends. Two months of gathering disaster...(Cont'd.)
I have left my job at TCS and looking for job opportunities as an ETL developer. Please do refer or suggest me for opportunities. Please click on my post to get my profile link https://www.naukri.com/mnj/fullProfile

My best friend took a year off work and just traveled around South America with just a backpack and duffle bag of essentials. He spent about $5 to $10 a night at local hostels and food costs cheaper at local restaurants and shops. He spent roughly $500 a month on room and board. Aside from activities like bungee jumping or live sports events, most of the other activities costs little to nothing. Debating on saving up and just escape for a bit just like that.

I’m just starting up as a freelancer after years of being a full time agency employee. Any big watch outs before finalizing my contract? What about frequency of invoicing and defining billable time? Any guidance on freelancing dos and don’ts is much appreciated.
Can anyone let me know what will be in-hand salary for 25 lakh package with 15% variable in Infosys
Does anyone have insight as to what PwC’s international practice is like in Chicago? Good group?
Is there a correlation between starting to work out (after years) or working out in general and face acne?
I’m adopting my very first cat soon! I’m trying to prep my apartment for him, and had a question about plants. Currently I have a ton of large floor plants (snake plant, peace lily, cactus, palm plant). A lot of these are toxic to cats, and I know I’ll likely have to part with them. But some I’ve had for years and so I wanted to know if maybe putting them higher up on a plant shelf or stand would deter the cat from eating the plants? Or should I just get rid of them altogether?
If you keep track of your non-billable time, how much detail do you put in your time entries?
Two weeks ago: manager offers me role then staffs someone else without followup. Last week: offered role that ended up being unsold. This week: offered role but might not be sold. Screw the bench.
Hi fishes, need ur suggestions. Deloitte usi vs IBM. 6 YOE. 17 vs 19.5. same location.
Which one should I choose.
This is going to sound really really weird, but have you ever suddenly stopped caring about day to day knowledge/practical knowledge and suddenly become obsessed with spiritual knowledge? I feel consumed by it and can’t get myself to focus on technology right now.
Feeling so disillusioned career-wise and trying to navigate whether I want to leave my practice area or law altogether. Anyone have any recommendations for books, podcasts, career coaches, etc that might help? Thanks!
What is the career progression like in PE? At McKinsey where I am now, it’s fairly standardized, about 2-3 years at each level, and up/out model. If can’t get elected partner after 2 or 3 cycles, will likely get counseled out. Partner eligible for senior partnership after 6 years. How is it in PE? Is it up/out as well or can you end up being “stuck” at associate level for 10 years? How likely is it to be promoted, how fast and what happens if you are asked to leave (where do you go next?)

This needs to be said. If your firm is not doing the below, or it’s doing the opposite of the below, your firm is faking interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). Continued in comments.
Just got on boarding details from D. 'Business casual - no jeans'. Not a fan of this move toward casual dress. If you can't dress well for your first day you have optics issues. Suit without a tie.

Firm (boutique ) just announced a firm-wide reduction to 3 days a week (it was either that or massive layoffs). I’m very scared about the future, I love consulting very much and can’t imagine exiting, any suggestions on:
1. What to do with the extra time
2. How to find a consulting gig in the current times
3. Anyone willing to chat for career advice
Thank you all 🐠🐟 for being such a supportive community
New manager at a Big 4, but I’ve been a consulting manager for a while. An SC on the team said they “refuse” to report to me because I’m new. Our partner told me to get this SC in line and that I have his full support- but he apparently never told her I was coming to join the team to manage her😬. How do I set this SC straight without totally squashing her spirits? For context, she wants to take on more management role and be my “peer” but she’s a brand new SC...she’s not close to being ready.
Anyone been to Cancun recently? Did you have to pay the VISITAX? Asking cause I think this is a new thing, haven’t had to pay before and I heard they don’t really check for it?

Anyone know if getting series 7/series 66 licenses while still employed with a Big 4 consulting firm will raise any red flags - cause for termination?
Will go back into finance (advisory) by start of '22 since I believe my ability to sell is being overlooked (I've sourced new deals for PPEDs/MDs but want small contributions for pursuits - "sales credits").
I'd rather catch up to manager/SM salary in 2-3 years doing something that actually benefits people rather than what I am doing now.
what are you noticing are the latest exit trends leaving from tech consulting? any specific roles you or your peers from consulting switch over to and actually enjoy and still get paid the same? I am getting so tired of the people I work with and their “high expectation, low appreciation” mindsets that tends to come with the Big 4 at least
Friend got a job at Western Alliance Bank but has a misdemeanor for reckless driving. How should he list this in the background check (just acknowledge vs telling the whole story)? Will this affect his employment? Thank you!

What do you think of ‘Additional Requirements’ in a job posting? I meet the basic criteria but the additional section really has a very specific set of skills they need...🧐
When do you normally receive your W2 forms?
For the last 7 yrs, every vacation I would send postcards to my family for fun (who doesn’t love getting snail mail!)
Anyway, my 10yr old niece asked me what my job is. I said I used to travel to help clients implement software and be trained on the new software. Now I do this from home.
She tells me she thought my job was to travel around and send people postcards. 😂😂 that would be an amazing job.
