Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like. They have started the right to work checks and the investments / pension plan declaration. Is this normal? Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)? Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!
Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?

Tax deduction help. Now that we are ending the year I want to find out if there are any other tax deductions I am missing. I maxed out the 401k and hsa (also Roth but that’s post). Is there anything else I can do? Single 27 and no home.
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.

Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
Imagine playing the system by living locally while reporting to a diff office - per diem = $100/day, weekends included. Sign. Me. Up.
Is anyone willing to share their hr budget per employee (excluding insurance/Heath benefits).
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
Quite disappointed that Bain ignored “LGBT” term and instead referred it as “special group” during a Greater China pre-MBA info session, when asked whether Bain has LGBT diversity program. Bain changed its logo into Pride on LinkedIn but can’t recognize LGBT? I know it’s China, but expect Bain to be more supportive across the firm globally.
Does anyone have a name for what I'm looking for? Essentially, I'm looking for a resource to give to clients that really need to assess their current benefits and pay structure (and pay equity) in comparison to other organizations in the market and to provide the results and a roadmap of how to get where they need to be in order to retain and attract talent. Something like an HR Turnaround Consultant but I'm sure there is a better name?
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!

Hello fellow 🐠 living in high real estate prices area like Greater Boston Area. A decent single family home close to the city seems to cost at least $1.2-1.6 M! How much household income would you recommend that one has before investing in such houses? Also, does the uncertainty of being on your H1B stop you from going ahead with such investments? Appreciate your insights.

Hi Fishes, I am currently working with TCS as PL/SQL Developer. I have 5 years and 6months of experience. And my CTC is 6.47LPA (Including 54k variable pay) .

Are there legal ramifications for doctors sharing medical opinions on social media? If they specify that they’re not giving medical advice is that enough? Wondering if there’s any guidance on this (I’m thinking similar to the FTC’s guidelines on how to designate social media posts as sponsored).

I have a friend interviewing at Deloitte with 7 years of industry experience + MBA. They told him they’ll interview for him as a Consultant and if he does well level him up to SC. Any tips on what they look for during SC interviews vs. C (I interviewed as a C so I don’t really know)
