A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
What is the salary for a Senior associate at Alvarez and Marsal's Turnaround and Restructuring practice in the US (currently based in another country, potentially might shift there) If you could please mention the breakdown of base + bonus, since I am aware that bonus ranges can vary a lot TIA!
Gah I secretly hate work events that are "casual" dress (in this case chicago promotion day) I never know what to wear. Why can't everything just be business casual it keeps things simple 😬
I recently had an interview with a Publicis agency and didn’t feel as if I was able to fully grasp the work/life culture or company culture as a whole. Anyone work there willing to give their thoughts on the overarching company?
Got a side gig that might be impacted by independence requirements at b4. Will b4 require me to just stop what I’m doing or shut the corp down?
Understandably, there is a bias towards BTC and ETH. While the alt coins are more risky (Link, Cardano, XLM, Matic, loop, etc.) their price is much more reasonable. That’s why I don’t understand why people say “I will only buy BTC and ETH”. That seems short sighted when you can put at least 10% in alt coins and hit it big if they take off. It doesn’t have to be a large allocation yet people are hesitant. This comes from a new crypto investor. Not financial advice.
Anyone else feel lost on how to exit this rat race? Burned out, feel totally stuck, and demands are only increasing 😔
What are some of the best consumer tech firms to target in Europe? Looking for a right fit after 5 years in MBB consulting. Wanted to check specifically about firms such as N26, Revolut, Delivery Hero, GetYourGuide as I found roles in them.
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
TFW you are so engrossed in your phone you realize you walked in and sat in a stall of the other gender's restroom ....then panicking to figure out how to leave.
Struggling to 'fit in' sometimes when everyone on my project went to a top 25 school or liberal arts private school and they have never heard of my school.
#3/31 on the upgrade list for ORD-DFW, 2 upgraded. Can't win them all, I guess #firstworldproblems
Has anyone here started a non-profit org/ been a board member of one, in USA on H1B? Pls DM w/ your suggestions including immigration attorneys I should talk to. Really want to setup one for a philanthropic cause but google searches call it out as unlikely.
General question: can you change the culture of a 4,000 personal organization in 3 months? I think you can set up a framework but real cultural change takes time. And Nov/Dec doesn’t seem like the ideal time to do it. I ask because trying to find a way to present this to my boss with proof points.
Work at a hold co and tired of hearing the ceo’s are in it with us and taking cuts? I call BS on that! They are only reducing salary and will still earn millions. Omnicom John Wren - $19,818,780 in 2019, his 2020 sacrifice = 5.05% reduction. IPG – Michael Roth $16,590,172 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice is undisclosed. WPP Mark Read £2,594,000 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 1.88% reduction. Publicis Arthur Sadoun €3,265,800 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 4.6% reduction.
Deloitte Finance & Enterprise Performance...anyone know if this is the move to be positioned for a future VP/SM industry role in FP&A or Controllership? I.e. is it SOX, or strategic & digital finance?
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
We often talk about European OOO msgs in this group, turns out there are challenges. "As costs ballooned, officials were "stunned" by the French taking a month vacation each summer." www.yahoo.com/news/budget-overruns-culture-clashes-over-121033257.html
What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
