Accenture peeps: how's the expense policy and benefits? Thinking of moving but I like my second cell phone and platinum card discount
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
Speaking of boutique firms. What's the name of the trendy millennial one with crazy health benefits that was ranked #1 recently for fun and WLB? I think it was in PA and did primarily healthcare...
For my Raymond James friends--how did you decide between W2 and 1099 channel? What were the main benefits that swayed you to which side? Was it the right move?
Do you tip the housekeeping staff at the hotel? If so, how much? And do you expense this or consider it part of your per diem?
Deloitters; is pension vesting tracked by your start date or a certain time of year? And is an all or nothing vest? I might be leavening barely a month from my 3 year vesting mark.
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
🐟s: I'm trying to decide which credit card to axe if I get approved for the CSR. Are there any real benefits of the American Airlines Advantage Citi Platinum Card? At $95/year,time to get rid of it?
Looking to jump from healthcare consulting into venture or growth equity healthcare investing. Any good firms that value consulting experience that folks would recommend?
It seems a lot of industries are struggling with labor shortage, Have most people taken jobs in a different industry or there are people available but not applying for these positions? Given that now the government pandemic benefits are done, what's going on exactly?
I’ve got a few roles open on my team, Fortune 10 healthcare company, good mix of hardcore data scientists and ex consultants solving interesting problems. Cont’d...
I keep hearing healthcare is a poorly paid industry. What are well paid industries? Cyber seems to be one... what else?
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Free and Reduced Lunch, pensions, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, caring for your neighbor, and PUBLIC EDUCATION. That’s just a small list of things I’m told I should hate because they’re all socialist. I’m not at all sorry to report that I’m FOR all of those things. Call me whatever you want.
Do we owe taxes when we buy and sell funds within 401k or 403b? Asking because I want to take over management from fidelity and adjust my portfolio and begin managing myself. Also 403b for spouse with Transamerica
My mom is going through a very bad situation with her previous employer who is not paying her her correct retirement benefits after screwing up their paperwork. She worked for a school district for about 15 years. She has a case but she is afraid it’s not high value enough to attract the attention of the attorney. School district is now ghosting her. If anyone has advice or interest, please let me know, thanks so much

Ok I can’t be the only one who doesn’t have time to made organic baby food everyday 😅 So far Cerebelly is the best option I’ve come across, any other recommendations? I shared my referral code below if you want to try it, it’s $20off your first order. http://rwrd.io/fttm4lq?c
In-house newbie here. I’ve been put in charge of drafting up a corporate policy that creates a process for employees to object to working with a client for ethical reasons. We are a vendor in the SaaS space. What legal claims should be included here? Religious, political.... anyone in HR know of a good resource to point me to specifically for this topic?

My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
I am 7 years out in a transactional practice (real estate) and have an opportunity to move in house at a regionally respected company from a midsize firm. I have WFH flexibility at my current firm but bill about 1850-1900 per year. It would be about a 25% paycut. I have also been offered partnership starting in 2022 if I stay - not entirely clear what that long term structure looks like (would have to develop a partially independent book in next 3-5 years). Am I crazy if I leave?
I hate the anxiety and overthinking of everything after a final round interview. Fingers crossed and might have an early start to the weekend so I can clear my mind

Project ended suddenly and had to cancel my flights. How can I capitalize on travel credit? Or do policies restrict this?
Can I jump firms without interviewing in this market? S3 with 3 years FDD experience... not really interested in more than 1 conversation to get to to know the team. To me it's not worth the stress to go through a full interview process but if I received a competitive offer quickly, then I would seriously consider switching.
Currently in Sales Ops, previously a BDR at smaller company. 2 YOE. I'm thinking about switching over to consulting. I want to go back to client facing but at a strategic level without focusing too much on selling. Any advice? Referrals? I'm within healthcare.
Doing a short mileage run next month in Chicago, it’s a solo trip. Any tips and recs while I’m there? It’s a weekend
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Got an offer for 110k TC for a data engineering role at a T2 tech company. I have 2 YOE. Currently at 84k. Both current role and offer are located in Toronto. Should I take it?
Ideas for client gifts this year? Typically has been a nice bottle of wine, but only to the clients I had previously shared drinks with so I knew they were wine drinkers.
See you in January. Time for PTO 🏃♂️
