Moved from US to Canada recently. Finding work culture in Can way different. Giving direct and straight feedback is almost a sin. I feel the real and rigor to walk an extra mile for the client is almost missing. Not sure if it's just time or if this is Canada way. Any quick tips?
Hey, so we always knew the COVID thing was a hoax and deaths were being misrepresented in order to drive a narrative. But could you all keep it down for a little longer? Some of us are enjoying the whole WFH thing and have already made plans until the end of the year. Also, we need at least a 3-month head start to get back to regular weight, since most office attire doesn’t fit anymore. Thanks! 🐠
Hey all. You can find Brooklyn Zoom meetings at brooklynintergroup.org. Some in the AM, others in the evening. All are welcome!
Thoughts on VSA? How's the culture there these days? Used to hear horror stories about work/life balance.
Working at Slalom build - Share the cons here. We know the pros of amazing culture. Good work. No staff Aug.
Started a new job a few months ago (remote for now). I'd consider myself a friendly person, but it's been really tough fitting in. I can't seem to get in on the camaraderie. And even worse, it seems like my CD and I are always on the wrong page/he seems unhappy with my work, my comments and even my questions. Trying my best here. Working long hours, but...I'm at a loss. Has anyone successfully settled into a job while remote? I sincerely welcome advice here.

I’m a 1st yr who started at a large firm during WFH status in 2020. My section is severely understaffed and as a result I:1) believe that I am not receiving enough training/feedback (& I ask!), and 2) am getting a lot of work with not enough time to complete. I know a portion of my experience is the learning curve, but I told my mentor I felt that this is not sustainable and she agreed. Anyone else have a similar experience? Any advice on how to best address this issue at yearly review?

When did the corporate culture at Accenture become let's "set up 5 hours of meetings on Saturday and Sunday. " You can hear in our teams voices that they are completely exhausted and depleted. I feel so guilty putting time on their schedules and asking for deliverables. On top of that the leadership team regularly joins from their cell phones during thes calls... Driving, at the store, etc..
I’ve only been working for 8 months but I really hate it, I know everyone says you shouldn’t leave before making senior but has anyone else jumped before a S.postion? What kind of exit opportunities?
Thinking about jumping ship a year before manager promotion in audit to work as an analyst at a relatively boutique family office. From my understanding, the work will be largely dominated by financial planning, tax planning (which I have no experience in) and some portfolio management. 20% sal jump and seems to better align with my interests which is certainly not just accounting based. Any advice on making this leap from public? Wish to transition to financial services and capital markets

Getting interviewed for enagagement manager role at Mercer Any tips and what is hierarchy at Mercer How is practice doing overall
Honestly so over startups that give multiple days for assessments with 1000s of rows of data requiring multi-page PPTs. You’ve only invested 1.5hrs in me but I gotta spend a weekend + work days doing this? I don’t even have a salary range yet except that they really emphasize a commission plus RSUs which makes me think they’ll give a shit base and reach my asking salary with “bonuses”...almost tempted to be like no thanks I’m good, especially since I’m iffy on the role anyways.
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)
