Worked in a project in asia last year for an asian client. Should my income be considered as foreign on my tax return? Any tax benefits associated to this?
I love my new client side job. But the west coast based team is not considerate of my time zone. I’ve been here four weeks with no improvement despite being vocal about it (within reason). My manager works non stop so I am sympathetic to that. But it often means I go days without seeing my young kids after school. Any suggestions?
So how did my client opened the week you’re asking? By telling the entire team (mainly consultants) that when the company stock was bottoming a couple of weeks ago they were looking to get out
How bad is the travelling job? I am thinking of taking a project that requires travelling but not sure as I never dud before. But it looks like I get some good experience. Is it worth?
I have 8 yoe as a BA. It's been 2 months since I joined a Big4 as a Scrum master. I was asked to shadow the project manager but the person is just not helpful. I am not looped/forwarded any emails, no client introduction has been done, no tasks, no one contacts me all day long except for the one call in a day where I am the silent spectator. Am I in trouble?
Walk down to the cafeteria to get coffee and a client is just rolling in with a novel in hand. This guy also leaves at 330 every day. Industry, God bless.
Hello Nagarrians, I recently joined Nagarro and got confirmed in project but got rejected in 3rd round of client interview so they released me after a week. Does it mean I was on project or i was on bench? I've heard they fire people on bench after two months.

Starting a new job on January 3. Want to leave on good terms in case I want to boomerang down the road. Is it a bad move to put in my 2 weeks on December 17, right before my whole project team disconnects? Or should I at least give them a heads up before I put in 2 weeks? Do I need to tell my practice leaders/PPMDs in advance? I’m a SC fyi. Thanks fam! First time doing this.

Hello Folks, Can you pls advise on which company to go for. R-Systems : They are providing WFH + clarity on the project and team for which I’ll be working upon.

I’m getting frustrated spending hours on end listening to people fuss and debate power point slides. I feel like people lose focus on helping the client and are more focused on making a pretty slide. As an associate I was wondering if more senior consultants felt the same way. I was on a 6 he working meeting 2day and we only worried about minor details of the slides. I’m frustrated and feel like my time is being wasted. In understand the importance of attention 2 detail but I feel this is 2 mych
Twitter allowing all employees to work from home indefinitely. Post-COVID, if companies allow more ppl to WFH, is there any reason for client travel anymore? Clients wont be in the office anyways.
Coming out of college I was worried I’d never get any long breaks again, but I’m pleasantly surprised this industry lets you take 1-2 months off between every project! Back on the road soon but

Ever since COVID, my skin has become much worse. I was starting to break out, leaving acne scars all over my face. Idk what to do. I’m 22 and I rarely broke out in high school. My skin was like a baby’s during freshman year. Is this normal? What products would you recommend for combination skin? I would also like to hear more about Ordinary products - they have so many but Idk which to choose after doing my research🙃
I just left Deloitte and have the option to rollover my 401k to an IRA. If I’m happy with the existing funds and there’s no fees to keep it there, is there still an advantage to rollover?
I’m an associate at a small commercial lender focused firm…and I had an interview with the partner at a big law firm. He asked if I had any concerns about working in big law. I said I was worried about WLB as a mother of an 8 month old. He responded with the typical “I know plenty of female attorneys who put their kids to bed…they just work after their kids go to bed. There’s no reason to worry.” this just rubbed me the wrong way. Is this just me?? This just big law life?
Was offered by D today in consulting, experienced manager. Have a competing offer with ACN Strategy but was more inclined towards D’s role. Sign on bonus at D is very low, what’s maximum offered at M?
Have an interview coming up for a Product Manager role at a startup and want to get more familiar with the product. Their product/website isn’t for all consumers and requires special information to sign up that I don’t have because I’m not the intended audience for the site. Any suggestions on how to get around this? I might be able to fake my way in and provide junk data but don’t know if that looks bad since my interviewers will know I did it to check out their site.
For MBB recruiting, does it matter if you go to an M7 if you don’t have a good GPA (<3.2) ? Like if you don’t have a decent GPA is it worth going through recruiting at all?

Currently in the midst of lateral interviews. Moving on to the third round — meeting the group and the particular office. Can anyone provide insight on, generally, what this may look like and what I should be prepared for?

Simple question. Why do Doctors earn so much in a country where access to health services is so difficult ? I don’t mind if they are becoming billionaires. I would just rather have more Doctors paid less. Access is a real issue. If the argument is around better opportunities in the US, this applies to many people, including us.
