Trying so hard to become a manager in consulting before I'm 30. Is this unrealistic or alternatively, nothing to be proud of? I'm 28, turn 29 in March lol, and am on the promotion track. So freaking close.
Is Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP same as Deloitte India. I have joining in January. Why is everyone so sceptical about the company?
As production starts back up, is there a standard covid protocol? I assume masks, social distancing and disinfection are baseline. Are teams following this? As a freelancer what can I ask for?
@ CA CPAs - Do you have a general license or attest license? Benefits of one or the other in industry?
Any sci-fi fans here? I recently read this book - blindsight. Absolutely delightful! It's one of those hard sci-fi novels and I'll be honest i didn't understand about 25% of all the concepts.. but even with that, it was soooo good!
Would welcome any other recommendations...
Anyone have international employment law referrals? Searching for assistance sending a cease and desist letter to an ex-contractor in the Philippines.
I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
1:1 with my VP
me: I'd love to learn more about the differences between Director/Group director/VP....based on that recent situation with "Candace", I'm thinking that she was focused on something I don't have insight on, so if I can understand where she's coming from I can prevent another mixup 😇
VP: *big sigh*...it...it wasn't you. Candace was wrong. I guess something happens when people get promoted to director, their egos explode and they don't admit when they're wrong 🤷♀️
Interviewing for a role at Google Cloud and the recruiter shared that it’s an “M1” level. I’m only familiar with L levels at Google. Does anyone have any insight to TC?
Anyone work in external communications at Google? What’s it like? (Hours, workload, life balance).
In general, how long is the interview process typically, from start to finish?
Does anyone know how in google meet when presenting to the students that on their screens they are getting a full screen and not half of the presentation and the other half me? I want their whole screen to have what I am presenting on show that way.
How long do you have to work at each big 4 before you can use maternity / paternity leave? Have a kid on the way but looking to switch firms. Spouse is supportive.
Are there any supervisor or manager positions within claims available or becoming available that anyone knows about? It can be private passenger or commercial claims… Ten + years of experience and looking for that opportunity….
This summer I and a team of other students and researchers are spending time on Colloqui, a digital education platform where we are teaching people how to have better, more meaningful conversations across all mediums and spheres of life. If this sounds interesting to you, I would really appreciate it if you could fill out the super quick survey (< 2 minutes) so we can better understand what you might like to see in our offering.
