I am a intern turned casual/part-time while at uni. I have been in the team for more than a year and I’ve built a really strong relationship with my director. However, recently people haven’t been (1)
Are you requiring vaccine cards?
Interviewing with an agency in NYC, but I’ve never worked in that market, so I’d love some guidance. Nearly 5 years experience. Working at an accomplished place right now. Have several awards. What should be the LOWEST number I accept in a negotiation? This isn’t a big holding company shop, so I’m trying to prepare what realistically could be the lowest I go.
What is your firm's parental leave policy?
Interviewing in industry with an international firm that is looking for someone with 8 years experience but the title is Senior Associate. I am a big 4 manager right now. What should I do?
Will be promoted to manager effective 10/1. If round 1 apps are due in September for certain schools should I wait until round two when my title has taken effect? Or apply round 1 noting the promotion is official just not yet effective?
Lots of justified negative energy on FB. Here is my proposal- Let’s all make honest efforts to make work not just bearable but also respectful, empathetic, and productive for each other. We all have pain points at work and don’t always take ownership of how we’re the pain points for others. Hope everyone has a more positive day!
What are the potential benefits of working at a deals oriented firm (e.g., LEK, S& Deals, EY-P) as compared to the more traditional Big 4 MC type roles at the post-M level? Really struggling with putting in the hours for the deals centric role as I’m not 100% sure of the longer term payoff (besides short term slight bump in comp).
Interviewing this Friday but NOT ready with work sample they asked for. Should I decline the interview?
Will it hurt me in the long run to have comms experience in different industries? My agency is hiring and I'm watching folks at all levels who would otherwise be qualified for a role be disqualified because their experience isn't solely in the tech/B2B space. I enjoy the work I'm doing now but I'm still so new to my career that I can't help but be curious about working in PR for fields like entertainment or consumer. FWIW, my internships were all fashion PR and I didn't think I'd be in tech.
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
Trump supporters - if Trump keeps not listening to experts and ignoring the science around coronavirus, at what point does it become his virus?
I’m currently at a boutique consulting firm with a very horizontal structure so have what will be a dumb question to most of you. Can you explain at MBB and big 4, what are differences in tasks...
Anyone book an award stay at Hilton properties? Do you pay tax with the points or just points?
I just don’t understand the accounting for income tax lesson by Tim G on Becker. Does anyone know of any online videos that I can watch to supplement this lesson? Or any other resources that will help
I'm an entry level consultant in Dallas at a smaller company. This is my first job in consulting and I've been here about 7 months. My experience has been good in terms of work life balance, autonomy, and culture. My only real issue is my compensation. I was happy with it at first, but with the workload and expectations I'm feeling undervalued. My base is 82k, 5k signing bonus, no annual bonuses or anything. Im wondering if I should start looking elsewhere or if I'm just getting greedy
I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
What’s the difference between a program manager and product manager at Amazon? Is comp different?
