So I screwed up big time and took an associate role in my current job. I absolutely should have pushed for senior, but I was super eager for a new job and to be back near family. I'm about a month into this job, is it crazy for me to start looking around? I know I could be paid a lot more...
Accenture CN peeps, my manager has not been able to staff me to a project for 2 weeks now after my release from one of the projects where the role as as good as content manager’s. I had voluntarily asked for my roll off as the role was just to upload come content on various platforms. They tried allocating me to some internal project but I asked them to staff me on a client facing project. I want to know what is the impact of all this on your performance or relationship with manager etc.?
Role I applied requires me to relocate to Austin , offer will come soon. I said yes to moving to Austin . But I am located in Florida and don’t want to move. Is there any process that I need to follow to ask for remote work from Florida itself . I don’t want to ask HM/recruiter to cause any impact to my offer .
Cried HARD today because work is stressing me out and I learned this week that I'm paid less than a less senior team member we're hiring for. How'd everyone else's week go?
I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.

I’m quitting and need someone to take over my role. The person I thought was best for it said no. How the heck do I approach someone else on the team without making them feel like second pickings?
Interviewing for an M role in M&A Alvarez & Marsal. Recruiter said base might fall between $225K and $250K. I’ve only ever worked at Big4 firms or in the industry. What would bonus look like? And how long might one take to go from M to D? Currently, M at Deloitte with 12 YOE (industry + consulting). Expect to make SM in 2023. Want to make sure giving up my network at D is worth it.
If TCS Hyderabad offices are opening to work from office and I am assigned with Adibatla (of Hyderabad) location which is 30 away (4 hours travel everyday) from my own property, what are the options I will have to undo it..? Note: I am new joinee and yet to get a project. *Except the option of switching the job to other company*
Small vs big shops for first junior gig? I worked in cpg marketing and I’m currently working on my book. What were your deciding points on accepting your first junior role? There’s a couple smaller agencies near my city, but I’m afraid some of their clients are a tad boring. Should I not be shooting for the stars with my first job in a career switch or would you recommend a big agency. Any experience insight certainly helps, Thanks!
director of diversity, director of culture, what do they do in the agency? Seriously wondering

Can y’all confirm someone’s gender + interest before sliding into their DM’s please. Very out of pocket behavior. M here, tired of random men sliding into my DM’s and being weirdos. Same with y’all women. My DM’s are a safe, respectful place. Be. Nice.
Thoughts on transitioning to strategy role? Former Epic employee, ~6 years experience consulting, always in IT but have held various roles (analyst, team lead, PM).
What are people's thoughts on hiring freezes in the M&A/ M&A Tax space? There are salary freezes and layoffs (especially at EY Deloitte), but will a hiring freeze be put in place? No matter how (cont)

For folks who are looking at exit opportunities: does it make sense to try and work for the M&A group within your firms before looking for corp strat roles? Looks like deal exp is reqd in most roles
Any advice for someone (a friend) looking to transition from film production to advertising? Having a ton of trouble getting even an interview for a junior role - even the most junior account roles are asking for 1-3 years of agency experience. TONS of transferable skills and super eager/great attitude, just hitting a wall. I suspect all it’ll take is a break by one of the many people he’s met for coffee, but any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.
MBB -> Non-H/S M7 -> Not consulting Anyone here with experience in this path? Does the pre-MBA MBB lose some of its recruiting value for post-MBA exits? Would love to hear your thoughts
This week SUCKED and i spent the entire trip home talking myself into thinking positively. Told myself next week would be great, my mood picked up, and then I saw an email from a client that has already f’d my Monday. 🍻 everyone!

thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
Is healthcare in America really that bad? Are there many people who want/need healthcare who are unable to get it? I was watching this video and am wondering: is this the model America should (not can) adopt?
Five emails from recruiters this week. I want to reply to three of them, but I've only been in public for 11 months (including my internship). 😟
SC up for promotion to M this year. Recruiter has reached out with Associate position in private equity. Not much background on this kind of move. Any general opinions/advice?
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
The only people who don't believe that sexism/racism/gender inequality exists in this industry have been fortunate enough to never experience it for themselves.
Well, guess I will be using my standing desk…
