Purchased a basic AA ticket for my wife... those things are rough... very restricted. Only part of my status that benefits her is the priority boarding and I think the gate agent just let us have it..
Interviewing at Microsoft and they are doing a centralized interview in 1 day. Essentially I will have 4 straight hours of interview with a 15 minute presentation. Does this sound normal for Microsoft? Any suggestions for interviewing there?

Given uncertainty in market, can we expect layoffs in Advisory and Assurance? I think Assurance folks are still safe...cause audit is still a requirement ! Regulators may ease it for banks...

A good friend had to cancel her wedding this year cause covid but with the virus relatively under control in NYC, they decided to move ahead with a socially distanced, small wedding ceremony of just 20 friends (in a tent outdoors) and only 2-4 ppl per table. Masks required. I am living with my parents right now and debating if I should go or not. The couple was really understanding and did say they would not be offended if I chose not to go. Thoughts?
I recently accepted a job that I quite overqualified for because I’m in need of a job. I got hired as a Marketing Manager and work directly with the Marketing Director. Come to find out my director is still in school and has absolutely no marketing experience. She’s been with the company for 4 months. They seem to want to utilize my complete skills set and make up for her lack of marketing knowledge but maintain her position as director and pay me a entry level marketing manager salary. Advice?
I fell in love with the first company I interviewed with and accepted the job offer. Did I make a mistake? Should I have shopped around more?
Considering pursuing FRM certification. Currently in FS and don’t have a background in business/finance (studied Econ). Would FRM help bridge the subject matter knowledge gap?
Looking for general feedback on salary & IC numbers: Had a recruiter reach out about a manager gig at PWC in a sales effectiveness strat role in TMT. Said max comp is $155, which is low in my mind for max (parity to my big 4 salary). Are they being serious? Or is this their way of negotiating against me? Also mentioned IC at PWC is 25% of base comp, true? (IC seems high/inflated)
Can others chime in in what my salary actually should be? (Range is fine) For so long I never talked salary with peers so I honestly am not sure anymore... but I’m leaning towards thinking I’m underpaid. 8 YoE - all federal government related, TS/SCI with CI poly, CGFM. Only a bachelors, no masters. TIA.
Why do you think the Robert Half salary guide ranges are dramatically higher than what we're paid based on the "Mercer Study". Have any of you brought this up in comp discussions?

Met someone who mentioned his starting salary on Wall Street was $15,000 in 1970. Adjusted for inflation that's about $95,000. Interesting that the standard hasn't really changed.
Has anyone exited to a FAANG equivalent (uber, airbnb, Tencent) from Big4, then further exited into MBB? Interested in seeing if it’s a possibility
