Have you been seeing any creativity lately around gender inequity, child abuse, LGBTQ, PETA, guns rights, or other cause related marketing? Why not? Because none of them are trending at the moment?
Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
Hello! Anyone work at EY? The 16 weeks granted for maternity leave…Is that full or partial pay?
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢
Need info on green card application process...have a birth certificate but it doesn’t have my full name, full father’s name. Its not practical for me to go to India and go through this process again..
Let’s start a conversation around parental leave - how is it at your firm? Does your firm do enough to support new parents? What changes can we make in our industry to better support working parents? Share your stories and thoughts!
Which big law firms have the best maternity/ parental leave policies? I heard Latham and PW is 6 and 5 months. Where else?
Before someone says comparison is thief of joy, share your experiences and thought process if possible... My wife and I have a very stable career here in the US with 400K HHI and just hit our 30s with our first kid. But I personally know friends who have very successful start ups (read unicorns) in India and several others going down that path. I don't feel very complacent but don't want to risk moving the family now in search of a startup in India (either my own or joining one). Contd...
Today would have been my baby shower. I’m so sad we couldn’t spend this gorgeous day with family and friends but I’m so thankful they took time to call, text, FaceTime and send tons of gifts. ❤️
In Lady Gaga's voice 🎶There ain't no reason you and me should be alone Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby But I got a reason that you-hoo should take me home tonight I need a man that makes it ri
I think my daughter has selective mutism. Any other parents here with a child with selective mutism have any recommendations on how I start this journey (books to read, tactical strategies, etc)
What do parents do if their child is choiced and don't want their child to go to school? Will they lose choice? We haven't heard what's going on in this part.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
My wife and I are in a bad spot. A close friend of ours recommended individual and couples therapy for us both. Tonight, my wife blew up on me and told me I wasn’t worth going to therapy with and that I’m a horrible father to our kids. Could use a word or two of encouragement right now. Never felt so low.

Has EY really had a good year? I am looking at utilization in my region (SW tax) and it seems abysmal. Are raises really going to be better than last year?
Hi Fishes, I have Techno Managerial round with Pwc tomorrow for salesforce developer position. What king of questions can I expect. My YOE is 2 years.
Recently got promoted to SM at one of the Big 3, how much raise should I expect taking a lateral position at a competitor?
Need to get the f out for my health and sanity. Small market issues finding something else.
Are people wearing suits/ties for remote interviews? Hadn’t considered it but have one coming up for a back office Director role - FAANG. What’s the dress code?
My current firm is filing for H1B extension (and LCA) but at the same time, I am also interviewing and may potentially leave soon and my h1b will need to be transferred. Would this cause any issues?
Deloitte USDC folks, how do you like your organization? Contemplating starting a new role in Florida, post-KPMG.
I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
on average, how soon after final round interview do you hear back from ZS? are offers notified via email or phone call?
Anyone do the freelance consulting thing post exit on the side ? Any best practice or lessons learned ?
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
Left my phone in the cab in the ATL airport less than 1 hour before the flight. Boarding pass was on phone. Was taking the international terminal shortcut so couldn't print my boarding pass...continue
