(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course).

I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2

I have a close friend who now lives in a diff city bc of the pandemic. She’s always been not so good at communicating via text & phone but wonderful in person. With us living in diff cities she’s gotten so bad at texting, like a month or so on end going MIA. Now she sent a flurry of texts being like yes let’s hang ASAP now I’m free! How would you guys respond? I love her but want her to be respectful of my time as well & not just go MIA and pick up as if nothing happened

Any advice for how to decline travel? Partner is pushing for us to go but there is a delta variant and I want to be able to spend time with my family without worrying I’ll infect them. The team culture is quite toxic (these people berate each other daily) so I feel uncomfortable speaking up, but I really don’t see a good reason for going there to do work I can do from home.

Nobody really has a fear of flying, it’s the fear of suddenly not flying! ATL flights are always turbulent.

How long do I wait for an interview to be rescheduled? I had an initial phone interview in July and they didn’t reach back out until the end of Aug. They scheduled a Zoom interview for mid-September, but canceled two days before and said they would reschedule. It’s been almost 2 weeks and I haven’t heard back. Should I reach out and re-confirm my interest and inquire about the rescheduling?

When you have multiple offers and all are the same monetarily how do you identify which one is a better role? A manager at cognizant and a manager at big4 are different even if their salary and title is the same. The exit opportunities from big4 is much better...how then should we compare offers?
If you’re happy where you are and are not necessarily looking to change jobs, what would make you seriously consider going somewhere else? How much more, salary wise (in %), would make you seriously consider leaving? What else would you look/ask for?

I am a Learning & Development profession (Operations, Project Management), been in the industry for more than 7 years. I am looking for relevant certification/credentials to brush up my qualification. Any suggestions? Thanks so much! 🙂
Which title would you use on your CV to better position yourself for client side comms roles? I’m at EY as a manager (external ranking)/ assistant director (internal ranking) with 11 years of total experience handling brand, PR, media & content. I’m interested in finding a new role such as a comms manager or senior comms manager at a company that pays better, but don’t necessarily want the responsibility of a director or head comms yet. Any thoughts on which rank makes me a stronger candidate?
🐠- I want to learn about world wars .. reasons why it happened and what transpired. Any movies/ tv series you recommend that gives me a full picture chronologically? Hated history as a kid
Would you tell your manager that it is very obvious while on camera with the client that they aren’t paying any attention to the conversation.
Thankful that I started 2021 in one under-appreciated role, and now I’m at the same title but in a new job making $35k more - know your worth ladies!!! For the first time, I pushed back and negotiated so much more and actually got it. Pumped for 2022.
Deloitte 🐠: I got an offer from Deloitte at the consultant level and they said I would be eligible for up to 13% bonus each year. How often do they realistically pay out that full 13% (assuming I’m busting my ass, I know it’s subjective)
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
How long is your commute each way?
