Did I make a mistake? I am a 3rd year at an ID firm making ~120k. I just had a baby and couldn’t handle the toxic environment at my firm along with the new baby so I accepted a more remote position doing something way more lax but will be making $95k. I knew I needed to get out for my sanity and my firm was requesting way too much from me and not paying me nearly enough. I would be berated for wanting to be home at a decent time and my partner constantly mentioned how she had a nanny and missed

We are looking to hire a FTE for systems integration. We are using Mulesoft as an IPAAS. I’m part of the hiring team. The pay is 6 figures it is fully remote, the benefits are insanely good and it can be your second job if you are very good. If you are great, it’s probably 15-20 hours of work per weeks. If you are good enough, I will even cover for you to coordinate with your primary job. DM me if you are interested as I’m tired of the crappy recruiting company we are contracted with.

Hi Sharks,

I'm holding offer from KPMG GLOBAL as SAP functional consultant for Assistant Manager role.
Relevant YOE - 6+ yrs.
Total YOE 10+

Is it really worth to join one of the Big 4 coz I'm listening very bad reviews about big 4s regarding WLB and deadlines-work pressure.

I'm also holding offer from TechM.
Not much difference in terms compensation.

Expecting your valuable guidance.


Where to go next? I've been a medical coder for 12yrs and hold a CPC & COC from AAPC. I've worked at a large Healthcare org, as a contractor for another large Healthcare org & lastly worked at a payor in their FWAE dept reviewing pre-pay claims. While I enjoyed my latest position in more of an auditing role, I am thoroughly over working a production environment. Where do I go from here? I live in SoCal & have worked remote for 11yrs & want to continue. I've yet to exceed $60k & really need to.


Does anyone else have intense imposter syndrome and believe they’ll never move on from entry level positions? ‬I’m trying to apply for new jobs and I have enough years of experience to qualify for a senior position but I’m scared to make that jump.


Appeared for KPMG interview 45 days back. HR is intentionally delaying offer release. Done with 2nd round of interview in last week of July. My Lwd is in oct first week. She took documents on 23rd Aug and did salary discussion a week later. And giving shitty excuses like waiting for approval. Approver is on leave bla bla. Has anyone faced such issue with this company? I never expected such a shitty and worst recruitment process from a BIG4

Good afternoon! I hope everyone felt appreciated this week and always! I am sharing this because I’m not sure what to think. The administration did some small things for us (soup and schmooze which i wish were soup and snooze LOL) but in a week which was very stressful for us with Ap exams coming up etc, we were asked to show our appreciation to each other via emails, or some special way. Nice thought, but we kinda do this every day…. Aren’t the students supposed to say thank you? 🤷‍♀️
