Is anyone else getting “agree” ratings on their snapshots? When scatterplots were released, I observed more that 50% of the dots were in the top right quad, meanwhile I’m sitting on the axis. Am I wrong in feeling like I have sharper critics and that the variations in data are a result of inconsistent messaging around performance? What can be done here? Will this affect compensation & ability to succeed?

Senior Buyer whose specialty is electronic components with 27 years of experience. Recently ended up in the medical world and realizing I under sold myself. Management asked me to do an analysis and come up with a number. My current salary is 82k. In our industry with the same experience etc. jobs are posted for up to 108k. Management mentioned that they want to keep people and they pay their worth. I got this position through a recruiter. Any information good bad or indifferent is appreciated!
Recently lateraled and at my former firm one of my female coworkers just got back from maternity leave. The firm has a billable requirement of 2000 hours and those who go on parental leave have a prorated requirement based on leave taken. She just told me that the bonus is also prorated so even though she met the reduced requirement she will only get 60% of the bonus. Is this standard?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Hello fish! Any idea about Affirm Inc. ? I got reached out for an analytics manager role. How’s the WLB, career progression?

I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.
Hi folks, My brother joined TCS 3 month back.. from day 1 he is in project. Deployed in client project. But they have given him admin role instead of development. they haven't provided any KT also they are not helping in anything like getting license etc. And forcing them to take task. He had discussion with product owner , architect. But no solution . Still they are forcing. Also role is independent and nobody in team knows that work. Please suggest what to do in this case.
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

If a firm sent you free tech for WFH (monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse), are you obligated to return it once you leave? Obviously will return the laptop, but was wondering if it’s normal/expected to keep everything else. Insights appreciated! (Relatedly: laterals, do your new firms send you stuff or give you a stipend for your home office? Assuming at least partial remote for now)

That time HRC and Liz Warren invited the KPMG intern to a 3some and the KPMG intern replied,"but but but Bernie and Bill are my sugar daddies"
Has anyone ever accepted an offer and then later rescinded that acceptance? 😬 I’m considering doing this even though I told my self I wouldn’t. I have an opportunity for a FAANG exit that is just too juicy.

I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
