Have seen a lot of referral threads on here. Since most of us have at-will employment couldn't we be fired if our firms found us soliciting other firms? I know it's unlikely but still seems to be a
Clients spent 20 minutes during the middle of a meeting to shit on BCG for getting them laid off from their previous jobs. How's it feel to be the Bobs?
Have any of you had to deal with a friend cheating the system to get the covid vaccine? I’m in a state where they work on an honor system and don’t ask to see your medical records etc. but you sign a statement saying you’re eligible. I want to confront this friend and tell them what they did doesn’t sit right with my values and wondering if anyone has been through a similar experience with a friend or relative?

Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?

Secretly find COVID19 to be a good lesson for someone just starting their career- taught me to save up for a rainy day, cherish everything in life and stop taking “normal” things for granted 🙏
Laid off 2 months ago - 111% utilization, glorifying appreciation from clients, great mid year reviews, recruiting & learning development internal initiatives. How do I stop feeling worthless?
FYI...My friend that works at RSM got laid off. Tax associate. In the beginning she said they weren’t going to do layoffs. Glad I don’t work there anymore. Anyone at RSM can confirm?
Inspired by another thread- has anyone reported something and ended up taking a severance/ signing an NDA? What was your experience?
I’ve been in the same city for too long and want to move, but my agency is getting into a hybrid model. I feel like I missed the timeframe to jump cities during covid and need advice on how to navigate the conversation with my manager. Has anyone been able to do this recently without having to get a new job?
Question for the more seasoned consultants, these layoffs and overall downturn in our industry, is it an annual cycle? Or is this abnormally bad
What is the EY severance package ?
F U Covid. You couldn’t even wait until the winter before harassing us again. I want the FULL hot male summer, not a shortened summer
How to spin a layoff? All at level or partially at next level snapshots. 70% of snapshots had performance differentiators. Group had a $9M plan but only hit $1.8M this FY. Want to stay in consulting.
A get that people want things to be back to normal and offices are starting to open back up, but delta clearly seems to be picking up and we will likely have to roll back very soon. Feels like we are back in early March 2020 when Covid hit the US and we took much longer than necessary to respond
What do unemployment benefits look like now? 450/week plus an additional 600/wk if it’s covid related? Is it taxed as income?
When I find you hiding on the bench...
I planned to travel internationally in December. It’s for a family matter that is personal. I am worried a bit about Corona risk. Now I see a potential VACCINE is available, maybe. Do you think I will be able to get it before I leave? How would I do it? Pfizer said they’d have 50M doses made in 2020.
Starting salary for a 1st year associate at PwC?
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!
What is the Analyst Role in Accenture? Is it advisable to go from Deloitte “Consultant” to Accenture “Analyst” ? I am feeling like down grading current level bcz in Deloitte Analyst is Junior role than consultant.
If I got offered a position at a big 4 firm for indirect tax. What do you think the appropriate counter offer would be? Do you think they would accept my counter?
Anyone able to tell me anything about Deloitte S&O insurance group? Interviewing for a job there but wondering what the group is like.
Quitting the firm in the next two months and have 15 PTO days left unused. Does it make sense to roll off my project and then use my 15 days of PTO before quitting or to cash out my 15 days?
General curiosity... On job applications, how many of you fill in the voluntary form regarding race, sex, and gender?
A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

I've made it to the case interview stage with Accenture Strategy Middle East for tech strategy. Does anyone have experience or insight with what to expect? I.e. is it likely to be more high level strategy case (market segmentation, P&L, M&A etc) or along the lines of tech cases (implementation, roadmapping, tech alignment to business)?
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Help! Received offer from client which I don’t intend on accepting. I would like to use it as way to bump up my pay internally. How should I go about doing this?
We’re finally going engagement ring shopping tomorrow!! I love the look of diamonds but I just can’t justify the expense at this point in our lives. Any suggestions on alternative stones?
Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
