Hey, I'm applying for Morgan Stanley Virtual Client Solutions Team Lead, what are the salary expectations? Thank you in advance! Morgan Stanley
A company I am interviewing for gave me a voluntary disclosure of compensation form for my current position. Should I fill this out for chance of higher pay? Are there possible repercussions?
I just bombed my first case interview. The interviewer said I seemed lost, and he wasn't wrong. Nerves definitely got the best of me. I have the second part of the interview (another case with a different interviewer) coming up next week. I guess I'm wondering if I blew the whole thing? Is there any hope with a strong showing next week that I can still move forward?

Thoughts on what to quote for a PWC India Senior consultant Managmemt consulting role?
5.5 yoe and 18CTC.
Design question for my work from home ladies - how did you decorate around a standing desk, large monitors, etc?
I find that with a large monitor there’s not so much I can put on the wall without having the monitor partially cover it - especially when the desk moves.
I don’t mind if the decor is covered when I’m using it standing, but want it to look nice when it’s lower down. Also find that with the monitor/laptop another square on the wall is too much of the same shape - any inspiration?
Looking for recruiting firms to help me find my next project / program management role.
Struggling to determine which firms can help with PM roles AND I'm struggling to get the ones I do find to respond to me. It may have something to do where I'm at in my career - 15+ years of PM experience & director-level roles at my last 2 companies - so more exec level but not quite C-Suite. Have tons of one-off recruiters hitting me up on LinkedIn about contract PM roles but that's not what I want.
For Consulting Automation-testing domain how is wlb in Deloitte india for senior consultant role?
Current bankruptcy clerk in a non-major market in the northeast. My term ends in April of next year and I’m starting to think about my next move. I follow the economy closely and know the general expectation is things will start to slow down/bankruptcies pick up again soon but I still don’t see many BK positions posted yet. I’m hoping to move back to Chicago and I was wondering if anyone in BL (Chicago or otherwise) have any insight into associate hiring in the next 8-12 months in RX/BK groups.

Tax question: Has anyone started a new business in order to claim expenses as tax deductions? What type of business? And how does this work come tax time when your primary income is as a W-2 employee, and not from the new business?
Offered a promotion where I countered for a higher rate and remote work. The firm reported that my counter offer was going to take weeks to discuss, but I wasn’t “asking for an arm”. Two weeks later they approved the initial offer without consent and against my written request to hold off until negotiations concluded. Now, I’m told that my actions have fractured the relationship
I am being criticized for my self respect to ask for my worth

4 years of consulting experience (currently SA) and 2.5 years of industry experience (at bank). Have a masters degree - what level should I apply for a bank and $$? Currently very underpaid!
Hi all! Does anyone know the procedure to get a professional reference/letter of reference from EY? I am planning to apply for Masters. A senior told I will have to go through counselor and HR for this. So will my manager and entire team know I am planning to leave, or only the person I'm asking the referral from? (And the HR obviously). Will HR inform my team?

I am serving my notice period and have received an email where I need to upload the actual investments in a portal they have share. In addition, they have also asked to upload form 12BB. Can you tell me the process to get this form 12BB? As per my knowledge, form 12BB is received when we upload the actuals in the tax declaration portal during the month of January. But I am not able to access that portal now... can someone please guide how to do this?

I got an offer but there was a discrepancy in graduation month, I noted May but it was actually December. Was asked to provide explanation so now I am waiting to hear back.
How serious is this type of discrepancy?
They also are unsuccessful in reaching my previous employer. Company was bought by one of the giants after I was gone so not sure how successful they will be in getting a hold of my record. That seems to be the last item in my background check.

Pro-tip: Do a search for the word “lead” in your resume. Make sure you didn’t mean “led”.
This way you avoid inadvertently annoying the grammar enthusiasts among your hiring managers. (Then check your LinkedIn while you’re thinking of it).
Can someone in Salesforce, Indeed or Meta assist with a referral? Took time to optimize resume and have around 11 years of tech experience but cant seem to even get interview callbacks :/… mostly looking for a Product Management pivot. Thanks in advanced!
Can anyone offer insight into a meta exploratory call? I had a meta referral, but was not moved forward with any of the 3 roles I was referred to . I got an email telling me that I was not going to be interviewed and the offer for an exploratory call from an advisor (not recruiter) on the referral team. Is this just part of their process when you are referred and no interviews for any role? I'm doing the call but does it ever lead into anything or just a "nice" thing they do? Facebook (Meta)
I know it wasn’t on your list, but I work at Salesforce and the majority of our workforce is remote and the work life balance is awesome. I’ve been here 9 months and only had three weeks that I worked more than 45 hours.
Thank you! I’m applying to Salesforce, but have a (distant) contact there, which is why I didn’t include it. But if they fall through I’ll definitely reach out!
I recommend checking out Indeed as well. We kind of fly under the radar because our stock is traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, but Indeed is an awesome place to work.
Gotcha. I’ll def consider indeed for my next job! I want to move from enterprise to consumer tech, but want to avoid facebook/YT/tik toks so indeed is a great fit in that sense.
DM for Dropbox referral if you see any interesting roles OP. All jobs are remote.
Many thanks D1. I got a bit overwhelmed with prep so I’m gonna hold off on applying there for a bit but once I am ready I’ll take a look and DM you
DM me for VMware
I actually have a close friend who works on Tanzu stuff (came over from pivotal) so thankfully I am covered there. But thank you V1! I really appreciate it
If you are interested in MongoDB, let me know.
I work at a startup in Boston, if you have interest in working here, let me know
U1: TLDR: I joined a very small startup and it shut down and we all got fired. Not a fun time, and possibly why this week has been tougher on me than some colleagues of mine.
P1: you’re right, peloton has kind of a startup culture, but it’s gone public. I’m not opposed￼ to start ups ( some of the companies in my list are start ups) but I am looking for mid/ later stage start ups if possible (due to compensation, stability, WLB, etc.)
Have you looked at Microsoft? I can refer you
I’ve mostly been looking at subsidiaries (eg LinkedIn and Github) b/c I’ve heard good things about them.
I wasn’t sure if MSFT allowed full remote/ I had heard pay isn’t as good in MSFT proper. But maybe I should take a closer look and get back to you
Checkout Ridgeline. It's a Dave Duffield startup (of workday/peoplesoft successes), and is early and as stable a startup as you will find.
Feel free to DM me
R1: thanks! Looks like they’re not hiring remote at this time based on the job search
T1: forgot to answer your question. I’m doing backend stuff for a growth team. It’s fine, but not very stimulating. Looking for something a bit closer to infrastructure without being a cloud engineer, if that makes sense.
Sorry to hear about the challenges at Pelloton. Its good that you have started to create a target list of companies. I'd suggest building it out to 40 deep. If you need help how to get to those 40, feel free to reach out to me on LinkedIn. https://www.linkedin.com/in/alanjstein/
Hey! If you're still looking, we have plenty of open roles. Lmk!
Can refer you for MongoDB. Also have a friend in Datadog that would be happy to refer you.
About me/stuff I’m interested in for context:

* looking for a remote role due to family health issues
If folks know of any good teams or bad teams, or want to push back on a company on my list, that’d also be appreciated

For anyone wondering, I was not laid off today (though many colleagues were.) rough day.
I was hoping to take my job search kind of slowly, but idk if that’s feasible now. Once things have calmed down a bit I’ll reach out to folks.
Thanks again y’all, I really appreciate it.
