So I’m the only female, aside from a rarely-present senior manager, in an audit room for a 9/30 busy season client. Over the past two weeks I’ve heard no less than five sexist comments,
Would you be honest or just put something like work life balance. I have worked with really shitty people. It would be several. Like base compensation, skills not fully utilized, firm culture, communication issues, etc
My memory is terrible lately. Boss and client noticed during a work dinner, asked how I keep up with my job. I felt very scolded...
Just transferred firms and I feel like a failure. I have no idea what’s going on in the project, feel like no one likes me, and I’m not doing a good job. I feel like just going back to my old firm.
Any Accenture execs out there? I'm wondering about your views on the culture at ACN at the exec level. Got a query from a recruiter recently and I am curious.
Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
Project ended suddenly and had to cancel my flights. How can I capitalize on travel credit? Or do policies restrict this?
On my way to LA for a shoot tomorrow. I am sure I’ll check in with client, have internal powwows etc. I want to charge for this day as I will be working but agency is technically closed...
Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
🐠 at North Highland: interacted with a recruiter today, would love to learn more. Anyone who works there, thoughts on culture, prestige, development experience? Thanks in advance!

Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
Looking for some insight on Accenture Interactive culture. Have had no luck researching online and this bowl.
Can anyone speak to culture and lifestyle in the VC/EM groups at WSGR and Perkins Coie? Considering a lateral move as a junior. Very unhappy at my firm but I do have it good hours-wise by biglaw standards doing lender-side finance.. nervous about going to a total sweatshop.
Anyone have experience working at the in-house production hub at Publicis Groupe? Thoughts on work/life balance, management, culture, or company as a whole?
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
I can see lots of people have interviewed for the Senior Process Improvement Consultant job at UBS with mixed feedback. Can someone share what the case study was like?

After 28 years of life and multiple degrees I've decided that the most valuable lesson I have learned is... righty tighty lefty loosey.
How much is your tax refund in terms of % of annual salary? I heard someone got as much as 10% back
Need suggestions and your views. Currently at Manager level in DUSI and just got 33% hike. Currently I am holding an offer from a boutique firm which is offering a much higher executive level and 30% hike over my current salary. But since this firm is pretty small and setting up new operations in India, little hesitant. What do you think fishes ?
Has anyone here interviewed for Accenture’s product analyst role? Have an interview coming up tm and would appreciate any last minute advice. I really don’t know what to expect but have been studying the cracking the pm interview book
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
Done with Marriott. I’m moving to Hyatt 💯💯
Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
Job listing: You must have an incredible creative reputation and internationally recognized work. Can we talk about how awards can largely be a pay-to-play scheme? What if you freelance and the agency/client doesn’t share credit? What if the agency/client doesn’t bother with awards? What if it’s the same circle jerk of milquetoast talent receiving the honors? Every time I see a job listing requiring international awards, it sounds like another agency looking for the right “culture fit.” 🙄
Piggy backing on my podcast post: I work mostly in film...when it comes to pure audio talent (radio/podcasts) are there set union rates comparable to SAG? Or can you set your own?
I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?
