*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
@Creatives, Is your agency hiring senior-CD level creatives? Wondering if agencies are bringing in new people? Or just expecting staffers to make due.
Compared to consulting, how much more challenging / demanding is an equity research role?
What are peoples opinions of EY FAAS group? How’s the work? How’s the pay? How the WLB? Interviewing for a Senior position.
Outside of total comp, what are the key benefits that A&M offers? (Retirement, PTO, etc.) Alvarez & Marsal
I work on two accounts. An account lead on another account left the agency for other opportunities & my boss wants me to take this position on as well. But, there is no raise or title change. #adlife
Starting a project next week after a long holiday break, I need to learn how to be a working professional again 😂
Not sure if it’s just the project I’m on but I feel like my job/role is to just put out fires and it’s absolutely terrible. Is it the project or is this consulting not general?
How do you pay for an MBA/justify the cost if you don’t exit into IB/PE/MBB/Tech? Is there anyone that go to an M7 that isn’t trying to get into one of the above and also doesn’t come from a wealthy background? i.e going into marketing to CPG, how much does that pay post-MBA?
Are us citizens allowed to goto Mexico, Cancun? I need to be on a beach for vacation suggestions ?
I am a 1-2 year lawyer in a large law firm (BigLaw non-US/UK) and feel like I am being under-utilised in my current team/firm. I think the team is too heavily staffed at the junior level which means I’m not getting enough experience for my level. It’s also saturated with competent mid level lawyers who seem to get all the good work before it trickles down. A position has opened at a competitor firm that I am considering applying for. Looking for peoples thoughts - is now the time to leave?
Deloitte S&A or LeK for analyst role?
Cannot think of a better day to take a PTO

Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
PTO - Alhumdulillah
I moved in to my first home about 6 months back. I live by myself and just want to be in my neighbors good books. I was under the assumption that neighbors would try and make me feel welcome to the neighborhood but nothing so far. Any tips or ideas for a gift on a budget to be in their good books? For reference both neighbors are a couple , one is an older couple and the other are expecting their first child.TIA!
Does anyone use a money system to help with classroom management? What do you think about it?
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
Second day of assurance intern training (AFIBR) and we are absolutely flying through the material. There is no way I am going to retain very much of this in an actionable way. How fucked am I?
When interviewing at other companies — and you're asked to share examples of your work, how do you go about this without violating any NDA. I have an interview next week with a team at X company, and they'd like to record the interview to share with other members of their team. Any advice?
About to start traveling A LOT. Do people recommend southwest or United? Flying out of Chicago and equidistant to midway and ORD.
After the layoffs we had, most people were offered a 90 day notice period, during which they have to be on-call, but there are those that get put on multiple accounts (continued)

Got a job offer from Deloitte today. $155k + Bonus but requires weekly travel and I have 2 children one still under a year old. What should I do? I currently work from home.
I drink moderately but lately have noticed a lot of the other moms drink a lot more. I don’t know enough to know if it is a problem or not for them but is it typical that all the adults are drunk at kids’ birthday parties?
Starting the CFP in January... gonna use a scheduled, 11 month program through dalton. Any advice?
One of those days when your boss comes in late all dressed up and you hope this was for a job interview. But then she tells you she had a party this morning. Oh well, 😔
Furloughed now and thinking about my job situation. Female physicians: need advice on advocating for myself when I was passed up for what I thought was deserved promotion for a male colleague.
What does the title “client partner” mean — seen mostly in WITCH. Is this junior partner type role/ responsibility/ comp? Similar to Principal/ Senior Director/ Associate Partner?
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!
Do any of you have colleagues who are very possessive and not willing to share their lessons/resources/materials? Solutions?
