Does pretty much every company require you to fight for raises in order to keep up with market value or are there companies that exist who are good about paying you your worth? If so, which companies are good at this?
Someone is trying to set me up with a guy (who seems nice…but I don’t really know him beyond texting a few times). I was born and raised in America, and he was born in india, and was raised in India until he was 15. It’s a no pressure situation, but I’m so hesitant to even move forward (ie going on a date) because of the culture gap. Am I being unreasonable? I’m 27F and hes 30M.
I’m considering an Associate Principal role at Korn Ferry and need a parent’s perspective on culture and WLB. Reviews are mixed on these topics, skewing negative. Part of why I switched to WFH in the pandemic was to spend time with my family, and while I have *some* weeks of 50-60 hours, it’s not every week & I still feel like I have a life outside work; I can log off whenever to drive my kid to appointments or late-afternoon activities. What has your experience been, and do you recommend it?
Just a survey to see where the happiest transaction associates work. Tell me your firm and your overall satisfaction with your job (salary/culture/team/WLB/type of work/advancement opps)
Am I crazy? I recently moved in with my girlfriend of 6 years. I am jewish - I go to temple and celebrate jewish holidays. Technically, she is half jewish half christian. She does not go to temple or church and basically only celebrates Christmas. Continued…
Need some advice... Appreciate any input! Going to start a new job next Monday. Current company, after telling them I'm moving on, does nothing, then last minute exceed new job offer. Current job has bigger team and more responsibility. New job is with a fortune 100 company and network+culture is great. Seems like either way I'm going to burn one bridge.
Hi, I’m currently in the interview process as a senior associate in the CX&I (Customer Experience & Innovation) department at Publicis Sapient. Looking for information about salary range, culture, and travel. Is there anyone here from PS?
I took a new job with an 18k pay cut with a new firm because it was new an they promised for a salary review within 6 months once they had a better idea of their profits. This new firm aligned much better with my career goals, culture , and preferred design. How do I approach discussing my salary raise/ the cut I took / and inflation all at once now that the 6 month mark is coming up ?

Which Job Offer Would You Pick? I’m fortunate enough to have recently received 2 job offers. Which would you pick based on the following information?: Job Offer 1 - Salary: 10,000 more per year than Job Offer 2, less PTO than Job Offer 2, better work place culture Job Offer 2 - Salary: 10,000 less per year than Job Offer 1, more PTO than Job Offer 1, better benefits than Job Offer 1 Job duties are comparable. Feel free to ask questions to help you decide! Thanks for weighing in!
Of the 3 MBB firms, how would you rank them 1-3 (1 being the worst, 3 being best) on the relentless nature of up or out culture? Like which place is the most cut throat work environment? Anyone much worse or much better than the pack?
My wife’s parents want me to buy them an expensive apartment in India. I live in the US, and wife is a home maker. They do not have a big chunk for retirement so I send them some cash every six months (like I send to my parents). I buy their plane tickets to US, help with additional purchases (like TV, cell phone). They want me to sell my apartment in India which I bought before marriage. But I want to start saving for my own kids. Dont have a home in US, how do I say no? Wife is really angry..
Soo how are we feeling about first generation Africans being the star panelists for several of these corporate Juneteenth panels? Before anyone starts accusing me of wanting to drive division, it just strikes me as being as an inappropriate as asking me, an African-American descendant of slaves to star on a panel about life in Africa just because I’ve visited a couple times (which I have). So, I’m seriously trying to make sense of it
Any data fishies that would reccomend working for their data team/agency? Seeking positive inclusive non-bro culture. Emphasis on merit based promotions/raises rather than those who are loudest *sigh*
