90% sure I’m about to be fired for sexual harassment (more detail in comments). Should I resign before I’m fired?
In your opinion what is the future of PR? With more media getting laid off, will earned media turn into a tactic underneath digital?
Getting Laid 👍 > Getting Off 👍 > Getting Laid Off 👎
I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?
Did Deloitte have a late-night Uber policy before the pandemic? Joining in a month and also moving and wondering how much I should consider it. For context, my current company had a policy pre-pandemic where we could Uber home every time we worked after 7PM and we could expense meals as well during those days.
PWCs new expense system is awful.
Asking the masses for your take for a family member: If you are presented a severance package, are they negotiable? Have you had success in submitting redlines or getting more $$? How many weeks p
What steps do you all take to prepare for layoffs (outside of an updated resume)? I’m not really expecting layoffs within my practice (fin services), but want to be prepared so that if it does happen I’m not spending months looking for a job.
Any tips for negotiating your severance for a non-partner role? Many good years at the firm—it’s just not working out of late and both me and my firm are looking to part ways.
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
If you’re ever feeling down, just call the Amex late fee dispute line and you’ll be told how good you are at submitting expense reports on time and how special you are to them 😂
What's the worst expense horror stories you've heard? I've read enough about getting away w/ expensing stuff you shouldn't. But I am curious about the other outcomes.
Former Accenture to Deloitte or Deloitte to Accenture folks. At Deloitte, we’re pretty lenient on what we can get away with expense wise. How does the expense policy at Accenture compare?
Just got back from 2 week long PTO and the only emails in my inbox are the mass corporate ones... Did I get fired without knowing it? Lol
I want to move to a remote fishing village in SE Asia and live out my days without excel or ppt
How much is a promotion % raise at your ad agency? ( yes, I know we are not getting them this year)
Had an interview last week that went well. The next day, HR sent an additional application to fill out (basically same info as the online app). Is that a good sign or usual process for 2 apps? Still waiting to hear back.
I was unemployed 6 months. Now I’m turning down interviews because there’s so much interest. Clients and publishers are throwing wads of $$$ at me. If you’re struggling, keep going. There’s hope!
Has anyone made the jump to FP&A? If so, can you please comment what interview questions you were asked?
$75k + $10k bonus for senior financial analyst role in NYC - should I take it? It seems a hell of a lot better than my $60k role in audit. Currently an A2.
I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?
Just lateraled and looks like I’ll be taking on a sizeable privacy practice from an associate who left recently. Any benefit to CIPP and CIPM training/certification as a lawyer? In DC if that matters.
Is a breakaway from Tech consulting to economic development possible? What are your stories or stories you’ve heard? Thanks for all advice/opinion. 2 years in after college with recent promotion
Baby just turned 6 month and I have been back to work for a month. Current company (in house) provides no WLB and I am thinking of going back to PA. SO thinks I am out of my mind, but I really need PA flexibility. Any advice?
Hey team requesting help with evaluating exit ops: 1.) Corp Dev role (VP). 200 base, 22% bonus and some bps of fully diluted float. Comes out to ~100k annually at current valuation. Not sure I’m 100% sold on the company growth opportunity...sleepy company / industry 2.) manager level at MBB. Dream job of sorts. Something approximating 200 /20% bonus. Opens a lot of doors long term. In short, trading near term upside for prospect of something better. Thoughts?
Hi there! Am I too late if I want to apply for MBB ops consulting roles as experienced hire? Heard summer recruitment might be starting soon
*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
