Looking for volunteer opportunities in the DC area. I swear our reinvest page used to have stuff, but I haven't seen anything on there since Promotion Day. Anyone?
How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
Moved from a small indie agency to a holding co agency last year. Who do I approach about a raise? At my last place I would set up time with the actual CEO. Who do I approach in a holding co?
I’ve been recently promoted to a people manager. One of my direct reports has only been with the company for less than 3 months and during our recent 1:1 has asked for a raise. I am certain they will not get the raise that they want but will do my best to help them. How can I improve as a new people manager to deliver this (assuming you bad) news? Or how to handle financial discussions when I do not have control of my reports’ salaries or bonuses?

Senior Promotion 🎉😊 Good Luck FB fam trying for one! (P.S.: when does the official communication come out?)

Advice needed. I’m supposed to be up for senior this year. I was informed by my counselor that promotion is still on the table however since my technical knowledge isn’t where it should be in order to be promoted I need to show significant improvement before year end in order to be promoted. Should I start looking for another job?

After summer, I’m due to start my career as a big law associate. And I’m scared to death. Imposter syndrome is crippling me, despite having performed very well at both Ivy League undergrad and law school, as well as the bar exam. Maybe it’s my background - raised by an alcoholic, abusive single mother and making it against all odds and thinking I statistically should be in prison, dead or on disability. How can I deal with this fear of failing?
Am I only one here who feels demotivated now with (long-term) WFH setup?..any advice please 🥺🙄
Just finished an initial phone screen with a recruiter at KPMG...my candidature was very well recd.. one hour later I got an email saying they will have to pass because they don’t do H1 transfers with less than 3.5 years on visa. Is this for real? On my second extension and having 3.5 years is highly improbable. I do have my current visa till sep 2020
