Yesterday, I submitted an application for a position with Lewis Brisbois. Just received an email from a partner wanting "a 5 minute chat over the phone." Wth is this? Should I take this seriously? Is this a prelim interview? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
What’s a good way to go about answering “name a recent ad campaign you identify with” and “what’s one brand you would like to work on?” interview questions?
Is there a rule when one is conducting witness interviews for an internal investigation that you should not show the witness a specific email that he or she is not involved in (email A) even though he or she might be involved in an earlier email in the same email chain (email B) and these two emails are in the same email chain/exhibit and you inadvertently show the witness email A? Sorry if this was poorly worded…running on very few hours of sleep

So clarification question: if a company offers parental leave without any stipulations of how long you need to work there first, you can take it without being eligible for FMLA, right?
I like my team at D and the work is pretty chill. Getting paid 90k base with 1.5 YOE. However I have an offer at another big 4 (Not KPMG) for 130k base, with a title increase. Not sure if I really vibed with the people I met during the interviews. What would you guys do? Stay or jump to the competitor?

Has anyone raised a baby/child while still teaching? Can it be done? I’m worried about money for childcare and fitting it all in schedule wise. I don’t want to derail my career, but a baby is a baby!

I was also a victim of sexual, physical, verbal, & emotional abuse from a step parent I love my bf more than anything, & I do not want to break up, but I keep fantasizing about cheating on him (Cont. in comments)
Hi Fishbowl Community, I am making a career switch from Marketing/Account Management into Consulting. Would appreciate if someone can share their path into this field and how they went about finding a case study partner to practice with? Any great books/ or recommended online programs/certifications would be helpful too! Thanks 😊
8 weeks pregnant and had some spotting yesterday. Drs office is closed for the long weekend but I talked to the on-call nurse who said to call back if it gets heavier. Anyone else had this experience? Trying to stay calm but quite worried.
Would you switch if you were me? I am Currently at Accenture Strategy (L9), second year consultant. Just received an offer for senior consultant at Oliver wyman, but compensation is the same (no sign on bonus). Wondering if making the switch is worth it. Pros: I think would have the opportunity to work on more interesting projects, as well as get 100% of my MBA financed. Cons: I have a feeling I am being low balled and there is risk involved on making a switch

If I switch Big4 and go from audit to advisory would I be let go immediately or would I be able to do my 2 weeks notice? Plan is to have the 2 weeks end right after filing but don’t want to risk losing health insurance for the month lapse

How to make the leap from Deloitte Health Care Svcs in Ops Model Transformation to MM Healthcare PE work?
I’ve gotten emails lately talking about how we are hiring at Accenture and asking us to tap into our networks, so figured I’d post on here. Needs being called out can be seen in the picture. I can’t promise I’ll respond to everything but if anyone wants a referral feel free to reach out. Also, I work in healthcare and I’ve gotten separate emails from leadership about how we need to hire more people there too.
If the stock market were to tank, incl. all these ridiculous tech valuations, how do you guys think compensation packages will move in competitive fields such as IBD, consulting, big tech? Based on current environments, I’ve two hypotheses: 1. Comp packages in competitive fields will continue strongly due to: a. less supply of top talent (great resignation), b. less willingness to work demanding jobs (push for wlb), and c. Rising living costs - inflation 2. Comp packages will get readjusted…
So I live in a state that offers paid family medical leave and my company makes me manage applications with the state. I am supposed to get part of my paycheck from the state and part of it from short term disability (managed by Sedgwick who are THE WORST.) I received no guidance from HR on the type of leave I needed to apply for with the state so followed the instructions I was given by the state. Apparently I was supposed to file for a different type of leave and now no one is paying me…
