Recruiter: No SQL test just know concepts Round 1 Hiring Manager: SQL isn’t required just a nice to have Round 2 Director: Alright let’s do a SQL test in Google doc 😂 Damn. Nice one Google. Always stay ready. It was fun while it lasted.
Received the offer from EY for M role, on call and email on Wednesday and also received a mail from the partner about it. Told them I will be accepting the offer. Had another offer & already received their contract , now I don't want to say no to the other firm before I sign the contract with EY. Which I am being told will only be ready next week. What is your experience after getting a confirmation on mail, how long could it take ?
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..
Given the current scenario, seems like getting laid off is a very real possibility. What is the severance package like at EY, PwC, Deloitte? Just curious
How significantly are exit opps impacted as a SC2 vs M1 if trying to make the move towards Corp Strategy? Debating if it makes sense to stay on and make Manager. Travel burning me out.

I took a transformation lead role in industry a year go. However, my role is de facto program manager lead per internal job title. However, I wear multiple hats. I have a small team of project mgrs and oversea the deployment of transformation initiatives. I also manage the financials (cost savings) for the transformation and report that up to CFO. How do I position this experience for new opportunities? I know the stigma that comes with PMO roles so I’m worried about exit ops? Looking for advice
6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB. How do you go about getting a government job and are they flexible about WFH, at least a couple of days a week? Recruiters reach out all the time, but always about other firm positions. Tips/ advice much appreciated!
Looking to exit to industry - I have 6 YOE, MBA from top 15, computer engineering undergrad, and recently acquired AWS Solutions Architect certification. How’s the current hiring situation at tech firms? How are my chances for FAANG?

How often can one follow up with a recruiter? Do recruiters talk to hiring manager daily?
Leaving the firm for grad school in a month. Trying to get a severance package but recently got a new career counselor. Do I tell her I'm going to grad school in a month? Or keep my mouth shut until I
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Morning All! Any advice for how to get a job at Barkbox—what they’re looking for or a contact to reach out to? Ive applied a few times in the past but never even get to the interview stage. They’re hiring again, figured I would ask some advice. Thanks!
Had many rounds for role in a tech company that I did not end up getting. The hiring manager mentioned that there were more roles in his org and he would be reaching out if the role I applied does not work out. Would it be creepy to reach out and express my interest on other roles ( it has been 2 weeks since I got a reject) ? Really liked the company and the work they are doing.
After talks with my regional marketing team (RMT), each of us feels that we deserve a raise and have been underpaid since we began. We are the most productive RMT, we drive global scaling with our work as examples, and train up our counterpart teams across the globe. All of this with half the team members of the other teams and within two years of our existence. Does anyone have guidance or advice on how to raise this type of issue, and how to seek a raise both individually and as a team?
So who here audits Delta? Looks like your risk assurance folk need to note a business continuity deficiency 🤓
Are cover letters important if they don’t ask for one? There are so many job postings and applicants I can’t tell if they would be beneficial to show effort or just a waste of time to write with how little time I assume people are looking at applications with the mass hiring going on. If I should be writing one, any advice how to format?
Any news on when offices are going to reopen?? Will it be mandatory to be WFO. Can we opt for perm. Wfh???? Please give updates on your company policies on this matter.
How do you all find time for interviews? Currently I’m in the office around 6am and leave around 9pm. Friday’s I start meetings in bed at 5am and finish around 5pm. Should I take them at the airport?
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities

Me and my wife moved to US in the last few years and recently had a baby. Both of us work in relatively stressful jobs. I am having conflicts with her on how to raise kids - my wife and mil don’t see daycare or nanny as viable options, and want to rely on grandparents from both sides to help with the same. They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family. Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.

Amazon low ball offer (L5): 105 base + 10k sign on + 80k stock (4 years) VS KPMG Manager offer: 165k + 10k sign on. Both are in Seattle. Should I go to FAANG for prestigious brand?
For people working for FAANG (amazon delivery driver & Apple store genius), do they get 100k RSU for 4 years?
Hi! So I received an email from the EY lawyers. They said they have received the notice of approval of my PERM labor certification (ETA form 9089) from the US DOL. And that my priority date is 11/6/2021 in a EB2 visa category. They also told me they submitted my I-140 petition to the USCIS. I just wanted to know how much longer it will take to get my green card. I asked when they will submit the I-485 application and they told me I need to wait to make manager (October 2021)
I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
Anyone free to chat? I am on vacation and have nowhere to go.. Could use a company... M here (Disclaimer since I know some of may ask that lol)
Next week FAANG earnings begin with NFLX and following 2 weeks all the big boys go. Are earnings going to be catalyst for next leg up or next leg down? I don’t think better than expected works anymore like it did in the summer. ￼ One thing to note though all the major tech companies but Apple are trading below where they did at Q3 earnings.
