Does anyone have any advice on how to figure out what the average multiplier for billable hours is in a certain city? If this isn’t clear, I’ll receive x ($) times (the difference between my max billable hours and my min) as my yearly bonus. I know what number my firm uses but was told it’s been the same for years. I’d love to advocate for a raise with numbers reflecting averages in our city but have no idea how to find this information. Thanks!
I’ve been seeing all of the Instagram and Linked In posts from agencies in town showing their “commitment to transparency in hiring” and to hire more minorities in light of the BLM movement. I knew the numbers were bad, but holy shit, not THAT bad.
It’s infuriating to me, as a POC how many fucking times I applied, emailed and reached out to so many of these agencies without getting even the time of day.
I’ll believe their supposed commitments, when I actually see the results.
Where are good companies to apply for to get into data science? My offer right now for data science in the big4 is only 66k and I definitely can’t go that low. Industrial engineering background with experience in analytics.
I was promoted to the chair of my dept. (first woman woo hoo.) Here is the issue- I can’t do it all. I’ve always done a lot of marketing. Billed the most. People still expect that from me but I can’t. So now I’m trying to figure out what I can get relief with but I’m not sure what would give me the most relief. Any tips on how to find this balance? I have files clients won’t let me give up. I’ve give up the others already and am taking on very limited new cases going forward.
For those with ESPP accounts, I paid ordinary income taxes on the discount a few years ago when I purchased. When I sell, how do I prove to the government that I already paid taxes on the discount? It was an Accenture stock plan if that’s helpful
Those of you who have had their companies go from a certain number of days PTO to unlimited PTO, did you actually take more days off after the change or were you pressured to take less? Company and service line would be helpful but not necessary

EY employee having work experience of 2 years and recently got into PIP, and now wants to put down the paper on a good note, to pursue further studies. Will there be any adverse effects if he puts down the paper.
Will they blacklist him or terminate him. Feeling scary.
Also, In pip , if someone puts papers, does he serve notice period of 2 months or they just release him immediately.
Please suggest, feeling scary, one thing I want is to leave the firm in a good note and no bad remarks.
