Blanton’s Gold Edition to celebrate a promotion!
What’s a typical raise percentage for EY TAS S&O practice for a promotion year vs non-promotion year?
Currently an OCM Associate with 2.5 YOE in consulting & 1 YOE experience in sales and going up for promotion to SA in May/June. Received a Senior Consultant offer from Cognizant that puts TC about 35-40% higher than current TC. Has anyone worked in the OCM practice at Cognizant / have any thoughts about growth, current TC vs offer, etc?
Reputable agency in my city, lots of awards and good clients (not global)......vs......global agency, (smaller in my city) weaker clients but a 10k raise.....decisions are hard!!!
Helping raise awareness: If a colleague is going out on maternity leave, it’s lovely to acknowledge. Pro tip- saying “I everything goes well” is more appropriate than wishing them “A good break.”
Hi Fishes, How long it takes to get promoted to 7B from 7A. It can depend upon the performance, but usually what's the average time? And how much hike can you expect at promotion?
@Accenture peeps, how can 1 get opportunities to move to South Africa or Spain? Tired of US work life, scared to raise my brown kids in schools where they are no longer safe incl. all these shootings!
Possibly stupid question: does a promotion to ACD help your overall job prospects? I see a fair amount of SrCW job listings and freelance opportunities but seldom ACD/writer. I’m ready to the promotion and would like the raise but I’m honestly wondering if it will only make it harder to take another job one day, or even freelance. Please tell me I’m wrong.
I’m up for promotion for a senior role, but also got a management consulting offer (associate) at a B4. The consulting role sounds more interesting on paper, but not sure which to choose
Reviews coming up, seeking a promotion to SAE, what range should I be looking at? 5/6 yrs experience. LA.
Senior Managers and Partners: What would you think of a manager that performs well by all measures (though doesn’t necessarily exceed all expectations, but smokes weed just about every night to unwind? Would it be an issue when it comes to deciding on a promotion?
What's this AMI and GPS in CBO?? Any chance that these grouping lead to higher promotion count next year ??
Are raises at Ey consistent across regions for same service lines and rank? For ex. Would a 4 rated GCR senior 1 get same raise % in Southwest and North East and Central? Or is it different by region?
Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.
One Crunch or All Crunch plan? I don’t foresee myself going to multiple locations, but there’s a good promotion going on right now…
About to have the talk with my spouse about his drinking. He needs to get help. We have a family and it’s not okay what’s been going on. Any advice on how to approach this? I’ve written a letter but haven’t sent it. We’ve had some conversations about it, bu it generally goes with him listing the things that “drive” him to drink. I don’t know if he wants to change, but I know I can’t raise my kids around this. Thanks for any advice you might have. I’m afraid of confronting him, but I have to.
Had a conversation with a head hunter today and learned my comp is well below market rate. Do I leave for the $ or have the convo on communication day?
Currently having two offers. 1. HCL with 13lpa 2. Tiger analytics with 14Lpa Which one would be better in WLB growth and culture. Location : chennai 4.5 YOE
Hey y’all, I am interested in learning more about opportunities that will help me get to 165k+. Currently in a consulting role with 6YOE in industry. All the projects I have worked on praise my work but the $ just isn’t giving what it’s supposed to give. I think they are nervous that I will be looking elsewhere which I am. But I want to make sure the next role pays me well. Any ideas?

Anybody switched from plaintiff to defense later in their career? If so, which did you prefer? Also, I’ve done plaintiff work my entire career - outside of billable hours, in your experience what are some frustrations/challenges that are unique to the defense side? I’m a 10 year attorney looking at some defense jobs right now and they seem a lot more stable with more upward mobility than anything I’ve experienced at a plaintiff firm. Thanks in advance for any comments offered.
How many real hours does it take to reach 8-10 billable hours? First year associate here wondering what a 8-10 billable hour day would look like now that I’m seeing my workload ramp up slowly but surely.

PwC public sector SA1 salary?
Is there a skype status for “Don’t talk to me"
How do you explain to you SO the role of billable hours? I feel like a broken record talking about how BIg law and in general the legal profession is very different, but my SO doesn’t seem to get the stress. Loves my paycheck for sure, but doesn’t get that to move up in our profession that you have to put the “time” in and that some of that isn’t just the 1900 requirement. It’s getting very frustrating.
Probably won’t get anywhere with this But a really good friend of mine is a recruiter in L.A got laid off and have a hard time finding a gig because of ageism. If you have job leads please tell me.

I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘
