Started working for an agency during the pandemic and found out that they cut associate salaries for those who started during the pandemic. I’m doing the same amount of work and getting paid less just because I started during the pandemic. Seeing as the agency has won more business and things are pretty much back to normal, would it look bad for me to ask for a raise?

Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.

What happens if you don't get promoted to senior after 2 years? Are you pretty much blacklisted at that point? Do you still get a raise?
Is it worth speaking to HR if you keep getting passed up for promotion for the past year and a half (will be 2 in October) even if all your feedback is amazing and explicitly mentions from multiple ppl that you're ready for the promotion? (Assuming you can't leave due to other circumstances)

For anyone whose team held back on promotions due to covid impact on revenue, how much did you push back on not receiving a promotion or raise (separate from a bonus, and if you were up for / expecting the promotion)? Did you ask for anything else in place of the promotion/raise? Context: smaller team ~25 within a larger company. All performance reviews leading up to year-end review have been very positive and in a non-covid world I would’ve been a lock for promotion.
What’s with all these lower-tiered firms matching the DPW scale and the V10 staying quiet? Is it indicative of another raise coming?
Promotion came thru this week. For the first time, asked my driver to stop at the gas station so I can get a beer. His response “typically only men headed home to their wives request this, good week?"

Currently interviewing with BRG in their Turnaround and Restructuring division and was wondering if anyone knew whether their compensation structure is similar to A&M's, as in the bonus being tied as a % to your billable / utilization rate? And if so, are there restrictions of any kind, like it starts applying after you hit a title, etc?

What does it take to get into a top 5 MBA program from consulting these days? Any tips/tricks?
As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay. Many of my peers gained valuable leadership experiences at various clubs or organizations. But I only had a year-long IB internship. Now I am in consulting and that IB experience seems to be more irrelevant. How dare I compete with the other wonderkids?

I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I don’t think I’ll be ready or have enough time to prepare. I just checked my email and realized how much work I have to get done and it’s looking like I’ll be working a lot of hours this week so I won’t have much time to prepare for my case or technical interview. Should I email the hiring team and ask to reschedule or just not sleep this week so I can fully prepare?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
