If you are on the bench and have a scheduled vacation day coming up, would you charge G&A or the vacation code?
I’m a senior strategist applying senior strategy positions and not getting traction. At this point I think I must be doing something wrong. Hiring managers - what are your red flags at this level? What do you need to see to seal the deal. Thank you!
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet
Do any of the Big 4 offer reimbursement for professional association dues? Not CPA or AICPA but personal stuff like a young professional networking group for accountants? Or industry specific group?
How do people in industry get promoted so fast? I have friends at fortune 500s who get promoted once a year or even less. Even my younger cousin just graduated last year, and at 8 months got promoted to “customer success manager” whereas in Big 4 I’ll be in my late 20s by manager
Do you enjoy the work at MBB? I know the hours can be long, but is the work interesting and/or enjoyable?
Some days I get so stressed and can't help but think how bad this job is for my mental health, and I lean towards leaving. But then I can't help but think about how "the grass isn't always greener" 😞
*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??
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
🐠's need Advise. I am tempted to move to another big 4 for better pay. Considering speaking to PPED regarding my compensation before making a decision. As a senior 2 earning 89K. Is that standard?
The worst thing you ever said by accident in front of a classroom full of students that was not a curse. GO!
What is the salary progression like at Bain (as you go through the ranks and also if you’re at the same position for >1 year)? I’m an intern and I don’t know how to bring this topic up to my managers lol
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
Just joined a Big 4 firm under the impression I would be doing XYZ work, but it turns out they misrepresented the position and the reality of the engagements available. I was straight up lied to (I did my due diligence as best I could). What should I do?
Just made the switch to client side...
