So I've been in consulting for a number of years but still typically live a more blue collar style...with my recent promotion looking to at least LOOK more white collar
Suggestions of does that...
Need advice for reconciling between your partners career and your own! My partner has an opportunity for a promotion into management but would mean moving cities. We are already long-distance with eventual plans for him to move to my city, but if he takes this job, we would both move to the new city. I’m worried about transferring offices so early in my career and losing any progress in networking/client relationships I’ve made. How do we navigate this?
I joined PwC Ac Blr, last Aug as an associate from Engg. campus
Got the 5% Jan hike, any chances of more hike? OR promotion to associate 2 ?(like last year 2021; Asso. got promoted to Asso. 2 within 3 months whilst trainings 🥲)
PS. Sitting in bench since joining.
Also are there any lack of projects?
Hey everyone. I found out we are expecting our first child and I’m really nervous. I got into consulting one year ago and I’m up for promotion this year. With timing of our performance conversations I would have to inform I’m pregnant before outcomes - then shortly after the promotion effective date I would go on a leave for due date. I’ve worked really hard and I’m worried our wonderful news will throw chances with this :(- also if I don’t get promoted pretty sure it’s up or out. Any advice?

If a manager promised a raise then says they never agreed on it, who do you talk to about it
Just got my first promotion of my career and with it about a $15k salary increase. I want to put most, if not all to retirement. I already max my Roth IRA, 401k and HSA. Are there any other specific accounts or things I should be doing with this money or should I just put it all into a brokerage?
Has anyone added meditation practices to their elementary classroom? I recently saw the the app Calm was doing a promotion where they let teachers join for free. Does anyone recommend?
So I feel like my firm’s promotion increases are a tad low. I’m just curious to how we are comparing to the market
When you are up for a raise do you have a percentage in mind, a number or both? How do you set your expectations? What do you think is fair?
Lol had posted this in an exit opp bowl and got a snarky response, but which would you choose: 1) MBB specialist role in a sector im indifferent to; pre mba level, $145k total comp, opportunity for promotion to post MBA level in January; MBA sponsorship iffy; 2) stay at current T2 firm; guaranteed to be post mba level come fall with ~$170k base + 5-10% bonus; MBA sponsorship guaranteed; firm has had v bad attrition lately; generalist but always placed in same sector as MBB opportunity anyways
First year to Second year Raise Percentage. Go!
Senior 3 making $100K in a low cost of living city. Am I underpaid? What percentage raise should I expect if I get promoted to Manager?
Is it okay to spend 3 years at a company and not get a major promotion (I just get the 2-3% yearly raise) or Should I start looking for another job? To be honest when I started at 70K I was overpaid for what I did, but now with the tasks I’m able to do I really feel underpaid, and I’ve let my manager know since last year but nothing has changed. Any tips please? PS: This was my first full time job, so I am not too familiar with the expectations/process

I’ve been working for the same company for over 7 years— I believe they have improperly categorized my coworkers and me as contractors. We are supervised, have regular hours, daily meetings, we’re expects to be working Monday through Friday, our work (editing and writing) is essential to the operation’s purpose. They don’t pay any social security or unemployment. After complaining they have said they’d agree to make us employees, but with a pay cut. What should I do?

Having trouble writing external resume. As a consultant, I’ve had multiple titles/clients. I want to highlight the management and impressive roles I’ve had in all different projects/clients, but the scanners see it as a “job hopper”. Also, resume becomes very crowded. How do I list myself as a consultant at accenture - with multiple titles/clients for the past 2 years? I just got laid off and need to start applying. Any help will be appreciated.

I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
