How do you handle being completely burnt out with 6 months left to go on a project, and no chance for vacation?
First Facebook offer 4 months paid parental leave, now Deloitte. Respect! 👍👍👍 We need more firms doing that!
Need genuine advice. Been planning to move abroad permanently for quite some time but due to pandemic situation, all plans were put to rest. I am having FOMO seeing others still trying to get things done by the way of finding jobs and applying for them. Should I apply too? Not sure how employers are acting towards foreign workers atm.
Maybe one or two of the reporters pretending to care about Biden’s answer to court rebalancing because they’re bored of a blowout race could ask the president or senate republicans about the president of the United States believing that Barack Obama and Joe Biden murdered Seal Team 6. https://twitter.com/UrbanAchievr/status/1316118694385385473?s=20
I am looking for moving forward in my career. My background is as follows: - bachelors in environmental health and safety engineering (EHS) - masters in safety sciences 6.5 years work experience - worked in distribution in EHS for a year - worked in EHS Consulting for 3 years - currently working in insurance consulting in risk management Want to get opinions on next move. Living in TX now. Insurance pays alright but my last raise was less than inflation rate and salary growth is low.
In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums. I was called out and chastised by a junior creative for using the word “savages” in an unacceptable manner because the word is slur to non-whites in a zoom meeting. I am a BIPOC creative. Am I the asshole?
I think I asked for too low of a salary during initial interviews elsewhere. The recruiter never told me the band either. About to go into second round. Is there still a chance to ask for more?
Interested in getting some tech certs (Togaf, ITIL etc) and PM extra (agile, scrum) etc to broaden and deepen knowledge. But can only find super expensive ones!? Any advice?
Is it worth jumping to Deloitte (offer in hand currently) in order to position myself better for FAANG 3-5 years down the line? Other options include staying at BAH or trying to get into MBB.
From a compensation perspective - who makes more money? Investment Bankers, FAANG product managers, or MBB consultants? Over time, who is most likely to make more money?
I can't decide if it is sad or really nice the hotel staff know me by name. I just received a Christmas card from the manager too. 😕
My position has became fully remote since the pandemic and now I want to move to a state where my company has no presence. Is this a okay thing to do or will I get fired??
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
How do you approach determining if an industry position is comparable to consulting titles / levels? Each industry is different so do you just go by the salary range?
Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! Hoping you all get a much-needed break today and do something for yourself ❤️

I’m looking for a new role in NYC. I have a feeling more layoffs are imminent at my current agency. Ideally, the role would be client facing, incorporate content creation, pay at least $90K and be located within an office known for its company culture. Reply if you have any leads. Thanks!
