I love this group. For those that receive company equity as part of their comp, what’s your strategy? Do you immediately sell it all and put the cash into index funds?
Creatives, what are your job KPIs at work? Like during your evaluation what helps you build a case to justify asking for a promotion, salary raise or bonus? It seems to be that when it comes to account department it’s pretty straightforward to measure sales.

Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!
Can anyone share experiences interviewing for security engineering roles, please? Would also love salary ranges, please. Thanks!
Was invited to apply for a lateral in another group at my company - transactional (I’m in lit now). I have a lot of experience in what I do now and am getting good development opportunities within my group. However, I’ve been passed over for a deserved promotion 3 times and am doing work two salary bands above where I am now. I enjoy the transactional work even though I have less experience in it, and it would be a great resume builder. I am not great with risk taking/change. Wwyd?
How do some of the Big 4/ACN levels compare to job roles and titles at Amazon? I’m a manager within the Accenture Security practice with strong focus on security compliance and risk. Trying to see which Amazon non titles would be equivalent to or above my Accenture role. If someone has a career path (analyst, senior analyst, mgr, sr mgr, etc) that would be helpful.

Does anyone know if TCS offers joining bonus to laterals? If yes, how much for 3-4 yoe? And does joining bonus means we need to give a commitment or something?
Can FIRE pros help me balance limiting expenses today vs extending retirement plans, specifically in high comp trajectory careers. Assumptions (model B4 career): Year1 comp - 75k Yr5 - 150k Yr10 - 300k Yr15 - 500-600k Why would I sacrifice n limit my expenses in Yr1 - 5 when I have high comp expectations? Saving an extra 10k in Yr1 is a sacrifice (high marginal utility if u spend that 10k), even if it’s worth 40k by Yr15, that’s only an addl 1 month of work at Yr15 vs full yr of sacrifice in Yr1
Anyone have any insight into the comp for TPM/PM role within security/privacy at google?
How much better are the exits ops from MBB vs T2. Don’t think I want to do consulting forever. But close to getting offer to lateral. Do I take it and exit in 1-2 years or just exit from T2? Thanks 🐠
Planning to switch companies but I'm currently in a consulting position on the bench. I'm worried if I give 2 weeks notice that I'll be let go immediately since I have nothing to transition, but I also don't want to screw over my current company by getting assigned to a project then leaving without notice. Am I just paranoid?
Interviewing tomorrow and the company has communicated their intention to make an offer by the end of next week. 1) would you take this offer so close to busy season; 2) is the quick hiring decision a red flag? Enough to steer clear of position? It’s a promotion to manager for me and - little over 25% base pay increase.
Compensation Q: is there a significant difference between senior manager and director pay at PwC? Interviewing open ended. Location MCOL area

Going to one of HSW. If I decide to stay in consulting (potentially long term), is it worth forgoing a B4 sponsorship to try for MBB?

My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
Got promoted to senior but did not get a raise to go with it. Firm keeping salaries flat this year due to COVID-19, but I was shocked when I found out promoted staff wouldn’t be getting a raise either. To me, this whole thing rings hollow because the firm has told us multiple times that they were projecting flat growth for the year when compared to last year (which was one of the best in firm history). So it pisses me off that they shot their mouth off about how great year last year was...cont
Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
Planning to exit into an investment bank as a tech lead(AVP). Any idea how the WLB will be generally compared to consulting?
3 yr post undergrad currently at 100k base. Offer from industry with cash comp of 175k but would derail b school plans and would have lower earning potential in the long term. Advice from the fish?
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
23 years old, $0 in debt, $71k cash in the bank, $12.4K invested in the stock market and working Big 4 making 76.2k a year. Currently invested in VOO, VOOG, BRK.B, and MSFT (ROTH IRA & Individual Brokerage A/Cs). Should I be investing more heavily with all the cash I’ve saved up; I’m a little worried about the market volatility, but also I’m 23 so want to cash in on compounding interest.

Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
I don't understand the concept of receiving a 4 on Year End (and getting laid off). There is no set percentage to give people 4's and 5's right? How does one mess up that badly?

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?
