How much do partners and senior managers in NYC make during their first years roughly at EY. This is in reference to Advisory practices like cyber and PI. Also how is the bonus per year calculated?
PwC 🐠, can you not roll over vacation days? What's this with losing holiday time by June 30? Please help me understand- how do you know if you have holiday balance? Thus isn't different from vacation
Some really interesting points on racism
I have an interview with Guidehouse and I’m reviewing the benefits package. Could anyone share their thoughts on medical benefits and what to negotiate for. Coming in as a Managing Consultant in DC area. Thanks!
TFW all the New Years resolution people are at the gym and the regulars can't even get a flat bench despite the gym have 18 of them... and the people "using" them aren't actually using them
Another senior associate just emailed the client to tell him that the PDF the client sent him had two pages that were out of order. He asked the client to RESCAN AND RESEND IT. Like he's never used Adobe in his life? I have no words.
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers. I started a little bit before Covid and there were no bonuses given out by my firm so far in my career until this year because of it. I was passed up for my first real bonus with no explanation. Is it time?
I don’t get the whole prestige thing. It seems like everyone is so caught up in it. Even at the most prestigious big 4 firm (Deloitte) people still seem concerned about it on this app.
Starting Day 1 CPT for PhD in Jan and have interview lined up with McK. Any chance they would be willing to hire me with this work auth and file H1 next April?

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home? I’m a recent college grad in the US and I’m the only child. My current firm’s office is ~2 hr from my (mom’s) home. I can’t live with and take care of her once the WFH is over. I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?
