happy that we got a day off but cynical me keep thinking if we don't have enough work so they can afford to give us that many time off

Is it juneteenth?

yup it is

Slow transition to the four day workweek. Look for lower wages to also become the norm.

Lower work days will not be feasible for consulting shops like agencies. Your time is set by the client and there are always fire drills, because clients are never organized. Agencies are already low pay. People put up with it, because of quite a few more vacations than other industries and year-end closures.

Every additional off day will be accounted for through less hiring and less compensation. There is no free lunch.

Not where I am. Less hiring means lower quality work product, and lower output. Days off aren't influencing any hiring decisions. Nor compensation. What's happening with us is the realization that things are currently slower with clients, real life is heavily distracting/impacting employees, and everyone is exhausted. These are mental health days we're seeing actually improve productivity. Giving people 24 hours to collect themselves and either participate in something meaningful, reflect, or simply relax has helped them focus more. I know it has for me.

I think we’re all just exhausted. Also, that’s US only

Omnicom agencies too

FCB is off for Juneteenth too.

Currently interviewing for a Manager role at Deloitte in their CBO/OT - Payments team. My next interview is with 3 practitioners (40min each) to discuss role and fitness. Has anyone gone through a similar interview process with D recently? Or if you’re an SM/Partner, mind sharing the interview process at this stage?

Told my boss that I have accepted a new job offer. Reason I’m leaving is because my current salary is laughable and on top of that no benefits after working there for 5 years. So now all of a sudden he wants to match what they’re offering me. Makes me think he could have given me that raise a long time ago.

Seeking advice on how to choose between a mid tier technical accounting advisory offer and Big 4 audit. Worked in audit at a local firm and wanted a bigger platform. Would love to switch to advisory to be more well rounded. Mid tier advisory offers higher salary but also thinking big 4 has a better platform and maybe better exit opportunities in the long run? Insights please.

Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?

Hi 🐠 two offers — would love to hear any insight: Offer 1: Walmart senior product manager: $200K base; $50k bonus, $40k stock vesting 4 years, $40k stock each year (vesting 4 years), $20k signing. TC YR1= $280k Offer 2: pre-ipo start up product manager, $145k base, $55k bonus, $40k shares, $15k signing. TC YR1=$225K. Work at startup is more interesting and greater WLB but not sure if the $$ makes it worth it. Thanks!

Has anyone ever given more than 2 weeks notice at the senior level? From conversations with my peers, it sounds like 75% are interviewing currently with the goal to transition before busy season. I just want to put my team in a decent position to replace me before this potential mass exodus of seniors from my group.
