HRs are playing safe game . They are releasing offers on last working day of the candidates,then they are rushing so they get to know whether candidate is interested or not. I got 7 offers yesterday,all of them are Same amount. This is how they are avoiding counter offers . So fishes be prepared for this. JPMorgan Chase Tata Consultancy ADP Capgemini Coforge Cognizant

Does anyone know what language this is? Got these masks today and just genuinely curious
Recently received good appraisal .. by my promotion is due for ita .. how should I bring this subject with my boss?
Yoe. 3 years
Started with systems engineer after my master's
How-to start that conversation.
Your boss is killing your productivity, enthusiasm, creativity, motivation, etc. What do you do besides quit?
PSA: I had a horrible experience applying for a job at Devoted Health. Applied online and then got asked to schedule a phone interview. On the day of the interview, I waited 20 min and nothing happened. I emailed the HR rep, he didn’t acknowledge or apologize and just told me to reschedule so I did. I even sent a separate email to confirm the second phone call. Second day of the interview, same thing, no show. I sent an email letting him know that my time is not being valued. (Cont’d)

Say you leave a holding company right before you get vested and return to it, at a different agency, two years later. Will those years count toward vesting at my new gig?

Does anyone live in Jersey City or Hoboken? Seems like I can get a lot more for my money over there but not sure if it's worth the commute or if the PATH is reliable.
Someone posted something earlier that brought back awful memories for me. I'm from the Caribbean, living and working in the UK. Well educated and capable. Yet at my old job, if I joined in a conversation one of my colleagues used to say things like, "Wait - the men are talking. Wait your turn." Or even worse, "Hang on, all I heard was, Blah blah blah coconuts!" Or the same colleague would repeat something I said in a hammy Jamaican accent - I'm not Jamaican anyway. Annoyed just remembering it!

I just started as a Consultant about 3 weeks ago and I’ve been having difficulty finding a project that utilizes my skill set. What can I if my company is having difficulty staffing me on a project? I feel bad that I’m not being utilized
Just started dating someone ... What are some relationship red flags/dealbreakers? It's relatively harder to pick up on since we are all traveling so much...
Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
One of the best thing of the job is you won't be stuck with the same people. I'm so glad I'll roll off soon and it's been so frustrating to deal with some ppl on my team.
Generally curious: first year partner sales goals at MBB? If the answer is, "it depends”, a range and qualifications are sufficient.

After establishing your airport routine, are you able to travel with non consulting friends /family? After flying with a buddy of mine, I had no desire to hang with him for like 3 months
At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
Interviewing with other B4 and discussions with leadership went well. Told 1st recruiter salary expectations early on. 2nd recruiter (practice specific) reached out and “would have to work on the approvals for an offer as a next step and would like to understand your salary expectation.” i) does this seem odd? They’re actively recruiting for this role- thought they’d have approvals and ii) if they’re not trying to haggle should I ask the recruiter for a range for this level?
My partner and I, we're expecting!! How long is the maternity leave in California? I was reading online about Family and Bonding Time leave. Is it additional to the maternity leave?
