You started at a new role/company 2 months ago that is +50% your previous TC, a level promotion, and you’re happy with the team and scope. However you’re also currently in a long distance relationship with a SO you love and have been with for 4 years. The relationship is starting to crack and moving abroad to be with her seems like the best decision to kee the relationship. How would you play this out sirs/maams? Ask manager to work abroad and quit if they reject it? Thx for the feedback 😔
Would you move from D to other Big 4 with only 20k raise (115 -> 135k)? Assuming you need to restart GC process from scratch a year after joining
Experienced senior analyst that has an offer to directly report to the CEO of a CPG company. 26% raise and title would change to a Strategy manager. Should I take it?
I’m completely checked out and doing the minimum to get by. If I can’t get a legitimate raise, this is my raise to myself.
INSEAD vs LBS: Targeting MBBs post MBA. Profile: Nationality - Indian, Current Location - London, Experience: ~6.5 years across Deloitte and EY. Currently on track for Manager promotion at Deloitte next year. My main concern is around sponsorship, are MBBs looking to hire non-Europeans esp. @INSEAD? People say it is a consulting school but majority of campus hires are EU / British citizens. Not sure if Brexit has changed something recently.
Can you negotiate a promotion after the fact, if you don't get it at year end, if your manager and leadership on your team all agrees/supports you? (Not currently in this situation, but curious)
What are your thoughts on this article? I was confused by how an earnest request of how to deal with money matters turned into a "you are sexist and part of the problem" epithet. Interested to hear if others agree or disagree with the approach taken in this article and what I might be missing. https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/my-girlfriend-makes-twice-what-i-earn-i-reluctantly-paid-the-200-dinner-check-for-her-first-promotion-she-just-got-another-one-should-i-pay-again-11627260385
I took a new job that I thought was a promotion, but after three months it’s clearly a lateral move. Do I discuss it with my new boss or should I just reset my expectations?
Passed over for a promotion a third time, even after doing everything, and more, you’re supposed to? It’s time to GTFO
What are the ladies wearing to promotion day tomorrow? Want to be casually dressed for a celebration but still work appropriate
I’ve been working hard this year, but I’m concerned I won’t get a promotion at the end of the year due to covid (we’ve had severe pay cuts/furloughs at our company). Any advice?
McKinsey 🐟s - what are your promotion cycles for generalist, digital and Ops. I have seen some 2018 MBAs, becoming EMs in 1 year 7 months and some are still associates! Confused as a fellow consultant from EY-P
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
Remember the pilot episode of The Office when Michael calls Pam into his office and pretends to fire her? That happened to me today.... BUT I GOT A RAISE AT THE END.
Hello! I just got a raise and I’m officially making six figures under 25 (a personal goal I always wanted to reach) I’ve also worked my ass off to save this year so I’d like to treat myself to a piece that will remind me of this career milestone. What handbag, piece of jewelry, or other “hallmark” are you glad you splurged on early in your career? I’m not a huge designer handbag gal, but I want something tangible to remind me of my hard work getting here. Thanks!

Do any of my other litigators who are thinking about a case on a Saturday night go back and read your briefs submitted on your case to feel better?
Anyone here join Orange Theory as a beginner? Pre-pandemic I was an avid gym goer but only really did cardio & weight machines. I’ve been doing at home workouts but I’m losing interest. I’m not super strong or fit and definitely can’t run fast or long as I once did. Im a little nervous going to a group exercise glass being new. Would love to hear people’s thoughts. Im trying to lose covid weight. Are there other fitness studios you enjoy more/made a difference? Thank you!
Does Amex platinum reimburse for CLEAR?
Have a better offer from another big 4 but I dont feel confident enough to negotiate for a higher pay at my current firm (cont)
Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
Does anybody knows someone who works in the pharmaceutical/medical sales field? My husband is currently looking for an opportunity to break into the field but haven’t gotten any interview yet (he has been applying for almost 2 weeks now). We are located in Virginia and he has a BS in Biology + B2B sales experience at a F500 company. Appreciate the help sisters!!
I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.
I don't know why this is the case and maybe it's just my agency but it seems like the people who are most eager to send out "internal trend email digests" be it cultural trends, social media changes, creative inspiration or whatever always seem to be people who are grossly failing in the primary role they were hired for.
Anyone know how to get the underlying dataset for the Bing Coronavirus tracker? Or a similar data set?
Moving to NYC from Europe. Gonna make 170-180k pre Bonus. My partner is a student in NYC. How much rent can I afford in the city if I want to still have a fun life. My partner can chip in 1.5 to 2k per month.
All service based companies will continue to suffer with attrition unless they start implementing their work life balance theories in reality and not in mails. Fuckin tired of this kind of slave IT culture we propogate here in india.
Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?
Best way to blow Bonvoy points on a 1 night stay in Honolulu? Considering Ritz, Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider. Any good experiences?
Perfect driving record with no tickets/violations. Got a $135 and 3 points for going 63 on a 50 at 3am in a new state (Vermont). No lights on road either. Is this fair? Should I contest?
Counselor and SM on engagement say they'd recommend me for a promotion to M this year. Should I keep my hopes up? Or is it just a mid-year kumbaya coz I'm still S2 with 6 years of exp and master's.
