Feeling hopeful for a job offer in the coming week(s). Would be my first entry to the ‘VP’ level, officially leading my own team and strategy without a CMO. Curious where I should begin with compensation requests - no stock options avail. What’s a realistic salary without cutting myself short? Reasonable to request a signing bonus for loss of end of year bonus by leaving in Q4? What percentage of salary? Does PTO scale up at that level as well? NYC, 10 years exp, Masters, great role fit
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Those who have switched firms recently: what signing bonus did you negotiate? And for what staff level?
What’s the best way to get into crypto? Finally left the big 4 world where independence sucked and made me jump through a bunch of hoops just to invest in anything from certain stocks to crypto. Looking to learn a lot.
Hi looking to leave banking operations after 20 years and just finished my MBA. I would like to go into a strategy or product management role. Any advice? I feel like it’s been difficult getting my skills across
Deloitters; is pension vesting tracked by your start date or a certain time of year? And is an all or nothing vest? I might be leavening barely a month from my 3 year vesting mark.
Fishbowl makes me appreciate my client and work more because most others here seems so miserable.
How do you approach networking convos if you're not looking to exit immediately? What if they are looking to hire and want to interview you? Any tips for navigating?
Any chances of McKinsey application getting shortlisted for the associate profile if you don’t have a referral.
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?
I have an overnight house guest that is very critical of my home unnecessarily and I feel its very disrespectful. Am I wrong to tell them I don't want future visits? How do I say this?
3 YOE in tier 3/4 city, what Base comp can I expect from Accenture Technology? Role is at the consultant level.
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
