Guess PwC SDC US advisory is recruiting at a large scale for Business Strategy, Finance Effectiveness, Enterprise Performance roles... Can anyone provide me with a review of PwC SDC US Advisory (Bangalore)? How is the work culture, work load, learning and growth opportunities?
Is it possible to work in tax while only working 40-45 hours per week? I like tax and learning about it, but I cannot keep up with the billable hours and constantly being in busy season.
How do we get more diversity in leadership? Gender, race, culture, all types of diversity. Looking at the top of the food chain typically results in rows of photos of middle aged white men...
Hi fishes, can someone throw some light on work life balance, work culture and type of work in analytics team of Landmark Group ?
Clients with toxic cultures: how have you dealt with them? We have a compliance client with a serious culture issue- they regularly throw each other and our team under the proverbial bus, throwing escalations around etc. I am one of the junior partners and suggested having an open dialogue with our C-suite contact to discuss constructive ways of working, at the very least… but the senior partner has vetoed it. Our team morale is pretty bad and we’ve had a couple of people leave because of it.
Anyone have mandatory PTO during the holidays? Our leadership is making us use PTO days if we don't have billable work between Xmas & NYE. I don't even celebrate Xmas, kind of annoyed
NY based thinking of moving to south Florida.. what should I consider before moving? What to expect re WLB, COL, culture..?
Laughing in billable hours
Currently a second-year associate at a regional firm. I have become really unhappy with the life-style at a firm and the constant stress of meeting my billable requirements. It was always my goal to go in-house, but I know I likely lack the requisite experience to make a move somewhere that can offer meaningful advancement. Any advice? I know it will likely be that I need to “stick it out” for a few more years, but I am just extremely dissatisfied with the prospect of being at a firm for years.
Does anyone run a business in addition to their firm? I’m a solo and I’m doing pretty well with about 60-70 billable hours a month. Though that leaves a lot of downtime. Curious if anyone has any second businesses that require about 20 hours a week. Not looking for passive income or franchise ideas though.
I'm finishing my first year as an associate in Minneapolis and am considering a move to Boston (originally from the East Coast). Can anyone in the area give some insight into general billable requirements, salaries, and quality of life as a young associate? Or just your experiences as Boston/NE attorneys. Thanks!
Hi, is anyone here who worked before in US and transferred to Canada? Just wanted to get feedback on the culture, pay, WLB. Appreciate any inputs.
Can we start a thread to discuss the best and worst Consulting firms to work at in London?
I hate open floor plan offices. It’s challenging to focus/ be productive in open environments. No I don’t want to talk every 25 minutes to my coworkers. I want to do my job and go home. Every time you interrupt me, I have to stay here longer to hit billable hours.
Seeking input: I’ve received an offer to join a V50 at market (Class of ‘19, T30). Im currently a boutique where I’m being paid $160k. Despite being told my billables would be 120-150, I’m averaging 200 a month. Partner kind of leaves me to figure things out, and when I inevitably make mistakes, can be very demeaning. Is it a no-brainer to jump ship? Obviously I’ll be making more money for the same (if not less) billable hours. But what are some other considerations?
Just saw IBM is buying Red Hat. Thoughts? https://www.investors.com/news/technology/ibm-red-hat-deal-cloud-computing/
Are Estate planners very busy during covid? Some have told me they are not and it surprised me.
Are there any internships or options where Indians can learn( certification or short term courses )and work as data scientist in European countries.
Can I go from PE to consulting? I am a mid career PE professional. Mostly in growth capital. I always had wanted to spend some time in strategy consulting. But in undergrad I failed to get an offer, despite making it to final round at nearly all the MBBs. Later I went to b school but it was not a target school for consulting. Now I am more than ten years in finance. Can I try to get an experienced hire role in consulting given PE experience? Is that nuts? Is this “grass is greener” syndrome?
🐡, I know I've seen this posted with some good responses but cannot find it for the life of me- recommendations for Morocco? Planning a trip for late summer/early fall.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
Do people still write thank you emails after an interview or do people send messages on LinkedIn?
What's the deal with these layoffs? I haven't heard anything. Is it commercial and fed, or just commercial? Whatever happened to *hiring* 25k people?
I’m so sick of teachers making excuses for not getting vaccinated. I got this lovely reply from a teacher in Washington because I support a mandate. I am almost positive this was the same person who claimed they had a religious exemption which I called BS on. I reported and blocked her ass. I should find another profession? Hell no, I’m in a high need field and rated highly effective.
I am a Sr Ad with 10 years of experience. I’ve been going through difficult times finding a job in my level. I don’t mind mid or even junior level job. Hey it pays bills and I am in the industry...
New to this and want to discuss risks & trade offs. I’d like to explore a strategy of being long a security (5+ year horizon) while writing short-dated covered calls & cash covered puts (short strangle). Strangle to have wide spread and modest income return. If put is exercised I buy the dip on a security I believe in and collect premium. If call is exercised I get capital gain on the underlying and premium, and would evaluate repurchase of the security with the proceeds.
ER or PWM? Both respectable firms

I need money and my credit score is low and now I just fantasize about contacting millionaires to help me 🤔
I love my job and have been doing it for years. My Principal is good to me as well! The problem is...the Paraprofessionals at my school are never recognized. You have Teachers Day, Secretaries Day, Principal's Day, etc. Paraprofessional Day comes and goes at my school every year with nothing mentioned to us. Paraprofessionals in my department (Sped) wear many hats on certain days and work extremely hard (mentally/physical)! Does anyone else get this treatment?
