If a job description calls for experience with “Executive Compensation” does that literally mean compensation of company executives or is it something different?
Which CC is better for sign-up bonus - Citi Premier 80K points or Chase Aer Lingus/Iberia 100K Avios points? I churn somewhat regularly and am under 5/24 by 1. I think Citi's points are more valuable but maybe I should knock out another Chase card before I'm at 5/24 again, even though Avios isn't as versatile?
I have Sodexo meal card of 2200 per month in the salary break up. Will it be beneficial for tax saving? Should I apply for it or no? Is it part of any tax saving section or it is totally excepted from the employer?
What are y’all’s hourly freelance rates? I make 110k/yr but am quite young. Used to do $50/hr freelance but I feel like that’s absurdly low compared to my salary. Thoughts?
I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?

Hey PwC-ers, how was your bonus this year? Recruiter is saying "expect 20-30%". I'm skeptical. What is the real story? I'm looking at advisory.
So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in 2 years (and I’m actually pretty good at my job.) But I just want to say, that each time my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new job next week, so we shall see! Good luck to all of you who are starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!
What is the typical annual salary raise in big4?

Hey y’all, what’s Tax senior 1 in Big 4 compensation look like in the Southeast? Looking to come back home from a high COL northeast. Mainly looking at Charlotte, NC. Responses are much appreciated 😊
I've gotten golden handcuffed. I'm making $800k/yr at a big company but I feel completely apathetic. The people are nice and I'm not really unhappy. Just bored out of my mind. I got an offer from a much smaller company where I'd be making some really interesting developments but it would cut my salary in half. What would you do?

Got offered 190 base for M level role at B4. They claim they can’t go higher. I’m inclined to trust them based on what I see here. Should I?

Thoughts on + 1s at client dinners? I think they just shouldn’t be there. A creative asked to bring his gf in front of the crew & client. I felt I couldn’t say no and regret it.
What made you snicker, chuckle, chortle, giggle or laugh today? Quiet to maniacal, have at it. To get the obvious off the list... paycheck, hours, unlimited time off, budgets, looming deadlines, and pets on zoom/teams meetings.
I have a phone interview with EY for a Supply Chain (Demand Planning and IBP) position. It’s with the director of the talent team and, I imagine, just an HR screening call, anybody have advice?
Want to exit audit as an A2. Aiming for valuation. Which would be better for exit opps down the road, valuation at an accounting firm (big4 or mid tier) or valuation at a specialized firm (think duff and Phelps or the valuation arm of an IB)?
In the beginning of the month I started working at a new place for a promising client, but realized the team is absolutely disorganized and no one is willing to do much. I haven’t gotten onboarding from my team and no one takes notes... is it bad to start looking again?
I work at a boutique that is not very well known, I went on sick leave for personal reasons, which they have been very supportive of. And while on it I received an opportunity to back to a big name I worked for before moving to the boutique. I've only been here for about 7 months. Would it look bad if I agreed to take the offer to boomerang? I'm very confused, everyone I know is saying I shouldn't do it.
Data strategy question: My Fintech organization has 2 banking products, both of which have similar features, but one caters to smaller banks and credit unions while the other focuses on the top 100 banks in the US. The product and engineering teams for both these products operate independently and rarely use any common technology vendors (except AWS, our common infra partner). Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?

Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
Would you look at this Army data science professor job, or would the salary/location/something else turn you off?
Just picked up my first 1983 case and I’m looking for the Bible on litigating 1983 claims. I’m digging my way through case law now to get a general overview of the landscape, but I’m going to want to learn from the best and brightest on this. If it matters, claim will be in the 8th circuit and it relates to a client who caught a rubber bullet with their face. I know the unlawful assembly case law is against us, and it doesn’t appear an actual seizure occurred, so this is going to be tricky.
