A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.
Analyst in a small boutique firm but hoping to move MBB. Any tips on how to position myself, set myself up with experience ahead of networking and applying?
Being given the option to do an exit interview as I leave my firm. Should I do one? I don't plan on airing my real grievances or the extent of them.
Age 35, $160K base salary, Big 4. Would like to get to $200K base by year-end. Any and all advice/guidance is much appreciated 🥸
Anyone want to give me a like so I can get to 11 likes in order to DM for a referral. I’ll like all comments for this post in return and I hope others will as well. Let’s all get to 11+ hearts together!!
At what point do you talk salary with a recruiter? Want to get it out of the way because if expectations aren’t in line no point in continuing discussions, but don’t want to bring it up too soon?
Can anyone recommend a Time Management course for employees? Bonus if it is tailored for Outside Sales people. Online/Virtual would be preferred as the reps are scattered throughout the country. Thank you!
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?
New one here wanting to start taking control of my finances. Cleared $100K in student loans by 28. Got a new role with annual salary of $145K now. Next year I’ll be getting married and we’ll be pulling jointly over 260K +. Restricting my Roth contribution. I currently have a 401K (48K balance) and a brokerage (26K balance). I just opened up a Roth although I think this year would be the only year I can contribute 6K into it. Where else should I spread my money long term?
Would exciting into state government be a good exit at this time. I assume positions are more secure, but am hoping to hear perspectives
Need help deciding, after big4 audit as a senior is it better to go into a industry accounting role or internal audit if what I’m looking for is less hours but still great pay. I’m leaning towards internal audit since there are no month and year end closing periods. Does anyone have any insight? I’m in a HCOL
Would an experienced hiring manager or someone who jumped to another consultancy be willing to review my resume and offer advice/ suggestions over a phone call? Prefer someone SM-level & above 🙏
Any firms actively hiring candidates for public sector cloud? I have years of consulting experience serving civilian federal agencies (public trust), AWS-SAA and CSM certified. Looking for opportunities in PS cloud as a cloud consultant/solutions architect. Would love an internal referral and/or a chance to learn more about the opportunities. Can provide resume upon request. Anyone who has anything, please DM me! Thanks 🙏🏼
I can't wait for the first zombie movie to go extra realistic and have a bunch of entry level hires at Big 4 firms complain that being eaten by a zombie is preferable to closing hair salons.
1 week to prepare for a case interview at a boutique firm, never cased before. Is it possible?
Just got a job offer in Dallas but only did virtual interviews because of COVID. I’ve never visited the city. Recommendations on the best area to live in for a single girl late 20s? Coming from DC where we have pretty distinct neighborhoods. I’ve been googling but it’s hard to tell which areas are more lively and better for single people.
Would you guys be interested in doing a virtual group activity like virtual happy hour or movie watching tomorrow? (Sunday)
Just had a dream that my plane crashed and instead of suing I asked for global services for lifetime. I think it’s time I leave this bowl until I become rational again
What hotel branch should I become loyal to? New joiner to consulting and was going to commit to Marriott but heard it’s getting bad..
Im in strategy at Accenture. Is there any chance they'll let me get staffed on a non-strategy project?
I need to revamp my intervention plan for foul language in the classroom. I can’t believe what these middle schoolers are saying and how little admin. does about it.
The BEACH or the BENCH? 🤔
gender equality is great and all but god dammit what i wouldn't do to have the first day of my period off from work.
I am really ill with the flu but I have an end of study Steerco meeting tomorrow. What should I do?
I’ve done really well in my 2 years with my current big 4 firm and am coming up for promotion in July. I am sitting on an offer with a step up in title and 40% pay increase. They say grass is not greener on the other side (hello unlimited PTO and all the other terrible comments I’ve read for new firm. Guess who 😂😅) but it’s hard to justify not moving. Am I making a huge mistake leaving behind my 2 year hard work going to the unknown or should I just go for it and take the pay and title!? Help.
Just joined a new small firm about a month ago and I haven’t done anything in weeks after the first week of trainings and a weekly bench call. No one is reaching out to me. I think they’ve forgotten they hired me. What do I do?
Can anyone recommend good books or articles on startup org charts and hiring? Think we’ve hit early signs of product/market fit, but not sure who to hire next, in what order, and how the org should evolve over next few years.
