PwC Partners.....can you explain the big operating model change that was announced that had no bearing on staff. Why announce it then? What benefits can we expect?
We have it worse than our parents. No real pension( defined benefit plan) which pays you an amount per month til death. 401k are at risk of the market.. while ceos and partners....make millions
For people managers, will you choose to downgrade to individual contributors at FAANG or continue being a people manager in traditional industries (e.g., finance, healthcare)?
Is end-of-year bonus season a lost cause at this point? (In a firm with no layoffs or pay cuts yet).
In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.
Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
Really got into investing this year. Have about 60-65 percent of my money in investments (not including 401k). I want to add more, but not sure if that’s enough.
It’s time for health insurance enrollment. I live in Wisconsin/Milwaukee.. I don’t always struggle to pick the right provider. Any recommendations?
I want to FIRE. IRA and 401k are beyond my definition of the ‘RE’ idea since they can only be withdrawn without penalty at 55. Is the only other way to save for retiring at 40-55 an individual brokerage account and just accept the tax upon withdrawal?
Any healthcare industry people have clients who have outsourced their medical billing department? Looking for some ideas/recommendations on what outsource companies are used and whether you’ve seen good/bad outcomes from your client doing so. TY.
401k rollover question — has anyone rolled over their 401k to their Roth IRA instead of a traditional IRA. or new company 401k? Can you explain your strategy here?
What’s the best credit card to get for a first timer? I just finished undergrad and have never had my own credit card (besides parent). My credit score is 760ish however no established credit history
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Got the Delta notification for weather issues in LGA tomorrow...who is adjusting their flights?
What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Any good books on how to be liked or get along with others? Looking back in my career, I’ve always had friction my manager and disliked by more than one coworker. It very may well be me and I want to change. I think I have issues with authority and grew up as an only child, if that’s relevant. 30’s F
Going to Vegas for the first time in December. I have Marriott platinum. Are there valuable status matches I should do and influence where I look to stay? Thanks for the advice!!
I’m on vacation (only 3 days) - how do I stop looking at my email and thinking about all the work I’ll come back to?!
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
Accounting bowl, kpmg just announced we’re finally getting 2 shutdowns, one at calendar YE and one around July 4th. They will do so by moving 5 PTO days into the holiday calendar. How would you feel?
FDD or restructuring at the big4? Which would be better in terms of exit ops amd future comp?
Oh thank goodness you confiscated my Tom's toothpaste, TSA. I was planning on whitening someone to death on my flight later.
Starting a new role soon (PM role - Biz Ops) Folks that have made the transition, what type of prep would you do in the weeks leading up?
which one of you going off on travel day...
What’s the ideal mix of workplace flexibility and discipline? Looking to take my team to the next level, and while we want to preserve remote work and “as-long-as-it-gets-done”, we want accountability
Happy Saturday :) Anyone at MBB willing to look through my resume and potentially help me understand what skills im lacking? Current international student that has had no luck with getting interviews through campus recruitment and I don't completely understand what's going on. I've had a few seniors and school coaches look through my app and they don't have any tangible feedback. I would truly appreciate your perspective, thanks so much!
I'm getting my MBA from the University of Arizona, how prestigious is the AACSB accreditation? And do MBB or Big 4 Consultant firms care about it?
