I am soon 2 Years at BCG, but my ratings make it unlikely that I make the promotion to C - what are my options? Will BCG help me find another job / give me paid notice to search for new opportunities? Outside of consulting, what would be a realistic position to aim for after 2 years A?
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
currently working in house as social media manager. i’m still a relatively new hire (less than 6 months), but really have hit the ground running and have made some serious progress in the company. recently my brand acquired another business and they are now asking me to manage both social and content needs. it’s definitely something i can take on but it’s still a challenge. is it appropriate to ask for a raise? should i wait a couple months in to managing the new brand to see how it goes? help!
Gah I secretly hate work events that are "casual" dress (in this case chicago promotion day) I never know what to wear. Why can't everything just be business casual it keeps things simple 😬
Guess who makes me feel better after a rough day at school... my dog :) Thank goodness for our fur babies! Raise your hand if you agree!
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.

I was asked to take on formal supervisor duties without a promotion or raise for at least 1 year. Tips on how to negotiate this?
I work at a mid tier firm in an audit group of ~20 people. We’ve recently had two seniors and a manager leave, and I just found out another senior with a ton of big jobs is leaving in three weeks. I also just found out I’m being promoted to senior with a raise of 10%. In light of all these departures though, I kind of want to ask for more.... should I? And what % raise is appropriate? Any insight appreciated!
Im currently at 70K and due for promotion. Is 95K too much to expect when being promoted to Account Supervisor internally? (FYI it’s Pharma)

If you get some development points and a partially at level in your third year, are you screwed for promotion?
Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year. My goal is to make it on that promo list in April 2021 - But thats when I am due. When should I inform my team that I am pregnant and how do I let them know that I am still willing to work hard for this promo despite my pregnancy? Thank you!
Front row. Empty middle seat. Heading back home. Promotion confirmed. Cheers everyone 🥃

Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.
I’m trying to get out of consulting and go to industry for strategy/finance work. Haven’t had any luck so far, 4 YOE, anyone know of any companies that might be hiring in ATL. TIA!!
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?

I don't understand the Deloitte cell phone expense policy. $200 for equipment? Doesn't Deloitte pay for our work phones anyway without having to expense? I remember just being given one when joining
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
Do I cut my salary by 50% for an early stage start-up, pre-Series B today? I could be a millionaire in a few years but the salary cut would be very painful for short-to-middle term. How do you make the call? I’m okay where I am, could probably go hard for more pay at year end but was interested in the opp. This calculation feels much different with a family vs single in my 20s. Please help.
Had another AD help my CW on a brief while I was on PTO for a couple of days, and is now refusing to get off the project and letting me do my job. I'm all for collaboration and appreciate the three hours he worked on it, but it's getting to the point that he's trying to steamroll me out of my own team and project by not letting me have any input on my own work. It's starting to really impact the output and dynamics. What do I do?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

What do you guys do when you have nothing to work on? I’m an A1, and sometimes due to client delays, work gets extremely slow. I’m just curious about what’s the common thing other staff do in this type of situation so I don’t feel guilty when I end up having free time
Does anyone know if internal transfer between service lines require H1b amendment and reinitiate green card process? If so, Can you start with the new service line before amendment is filed? (Transfer from audit/accounting advisory to Due diligence) Thanks!
