Scored my first gig in advertising as an intern at BBH NY like 10 years ago. Part of the application asked for an original poem and I happened to be watching 16 and Pregnant on MTV. The preggo teenager was cursing out her partner so I wrote down the lines in all caps and got a call the next day.


How do you feel when a coworker expresses a personal opinion or belief that is so far from factual or reality, that you can no longer place the same amount of credence on their professional or technical opinions? Especially in highly technical roles where how one parses and analyzes data could even be a matter of safety?

What is the formula for Grauity calculations, on HRWeb it states

Pls help! I’m updating my resume with the hopes of leaving the firm in the spring. How do I go about including the industries that I’ve worked in and that I’ve been on IPOs?

I also have about 5 years of work experience (incl accounting) prior to joining EY, so not overly concerned about leaving before promo if the timing works out that way

Hi fishes. Is it a fact that PWC payscale is relatively low compared to other Big4s?

I have been approached by PwC HRs twice in last 2 months, both times they did not even shortlist me stating that my expected CTC is high.

My profile:
YoE =6.5yrs + 2yrs tier2-MBA
Expected CTC= 1.4x

2nd time they approached, I even brought down my exp CTC to 1.3x. Still they said PwC does not have budget.

I already have offer of 1.45x from another Big4. Its only PwC that is not budging. :(

I’m in a job that I’ve been in for a long time but am in a unique situation where I will need to relocate and either find another job at my company or take a package and find a job elsewhere. I would probably make more money staying at my company but feel like I’ve gotten too comfortable because I either feel unqualified or underwhelmed reading pretty much any job posting (and maybe I’m suffering from a bit of corporate burnout). Any thoughts or advice?
