If one is on a long workshop call (not an optional one and spanning more than a few hours) that spans across the lunch time period, does your firm or client generally provide for lunch when it's been in-person, or reimburse for lunch when it's been in-person or working from home (the latter particularly due to COVID)?
Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.

Asking for a friend.. Say you left an audit firm and entirely by chance you ended up working for an audit client's company (a Big 4 firm in this case), but for a different audit team. Is there anything you need to worry about for independence rules?
Best side project you’ve ever seen?
Manager 1. Transfer from audit into FDD (and have to do one more busy season in audit), or leave to a financial reporting job at a large public co for 40% raise?
What's a good percentage range for a raise when going from mid to senior level in the agency world (or RZF specifically)?
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)
What does your firm do for evening meals if you work late? Most of our offices bring in a meal couple of nights a week but will no reimburse if in town and working late at a client.
I currently make $132k and have not had a IRA. Is it worth opening one if I expect my next raise to bring me above $139K (which is the income limit for a single)?
14 months into my first agency job and I’ve been told from my CDs that I’ve been recommended for a raise. What should I ask for? I’m making 58k now and have had a bunch of work produced.
Is it just me or is being a manager way easier than being an SC or below? I feel like it’s so easy and mindless 80% of the time. Especially after a project is up and running. Caveat: I have a great tech lead who owns that part and a great team to deliver. Obviously this won’t always be the case. I’m looking for M horror stories
Just curious... what are some of the most ridiculous comments you've ever received from a client???
I’m going to be acting manager for 18 months before the official title promotion. Should I accept that as normal?
On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
Has anyone leveraged an offer at another firm to get a raise at their current firm? If so, were you successful and were there any long term impacts within the current firm because they think you tried to bail? (Getting recruited by other firms for higher TC but enjoy current firm’s project types more.)
I’m curious to know how can I follow up with a recruiter without looking desperate. The interview went really well, and she said she would reach out soon, but haven’t heard back from her yet.
Any 🐠 looking for a place to stay in Boston this winter? I am taking advantage of 100% remote work and going to Utah. Looking to rent out my furnished 2 BR 2Bath apartment, downtown- water view of the harbor next to the aquarium. $4k a month (renting at cost)
Someone remind me please, if I book a flight through Chase portal, my elite status will kick in vs. if I book a hotel through the portal I won’t get the points, correct?
As a smaller player, how does Slalom differentiate itself in the market from Big 4 firms and how are they positioned to grow their business going forward compared to bigger firms like Accenture, MBB, Big4? Is it price? Quality of work? Specialized work? Curious to hear perspective from someone with experience or knowledge of the competitive landscape.
Does anyone pass the merchant/credit card fees to their clients when the client pays online?
Does your Drivers license say ‘temporary’ on it? I would assume anyone on a visa will have a DL that says temporary on it. Has it caused an issue in getting a loan? Backstory - applied for an auto loan thru a dealership and the credit union came back asking for a govt Id other than the DL since the DL says temporary on it. Anyone seen this before? Am I doomed to never get an auto loan in US? Dealership is looking for other lenders and I’m looking for other CUs but I didn’t expect this issue.
Which firms are considered top tier in organizational efficiency/effectiveness type work? Other than the obvious MBB. Thanks!
Meeting with PM scheduled an hour ago but he hasn't logged in and not responding to email. PM texted ProgM saying he's sick, but I call bullshit. Hope his drive to the beach is going well...
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me? (Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...
Incoming PE VP comp structure suggestions?
It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
Got the Delta notification for weather issues in LGA tomorrow...who is adjusting their flights?
Ladies I am 35 weeks pregnant and going on maternity leave in 2-3 days. Politics on my project has led to poor project snapshots. What should I do?
Salary to expect as a first year director within accounting advisory (or salary % increase)?
