Dear Partner who made a huge ask at 4 pm on a Friday before I head out on vacation, Do not be surprised when I quit yo ass.
Do you guys think Wall Street and investment banks will have a permanent WFH culture in the future too? Used to be in the Wall st. world but left it in 2008 for IT consulting. Might boomerang back.
TW: Suicide. My husband’s grandfather committed suicide on thanksgiving. I’m so disoriented and don’t know how to holiday or who I can talk to about this. Advice?
Boss wants the team to check emails during vacation if entire team is out on PTO at the same time since they want to make sure emails are responded to during that time. Is this reasonable?
Very single and don’t have anyone to go to the holiday party with. Fairly new to firm and don’t know anyone in the office. Should I go solo or find a random date?
Here’s a radical idea: don’t bother me on PTO.
Ex-KPMG: contract says 60 day notice. How strict is that enforced? If you have 60 days of PTO, do you just take PTO for those 60 days or work 60 and pay out at end
Thoughts on Carlyle (debt side)? Heard rumors that its pretty sweaty with a poor culture - any validity to this or nah?
Is it legit for anyone, at any level of seniority, that works in IBD to put on an out of office when taking ordinary course vacation?
Is unlimited pto a scam? (In industry)
Trying to find awards show categories for a globally activated branded holiday. Any thoughts greatly appreciated :)
Anyone else have a manager that does not know how to take a vacation? I don't know what's more annoying. Them asking the team to update them every other moment with things that are super low...
Everyone from the MDs and Partners to the lowly Associate (me) on my team is emotionally checked out and doing the bare minimum this week. Anyone else struggling with the pre-holiday productivity slump?
Thoughts on strategy& compared to McKinsey? In final stages with both. Curious if folks have worked at both - how’s culture, WLB, pay comparison, etc?
Have you ever took pto but was asked to work through it? I’m assuming this comes with the job but just curious what everyone’s experience at their firms have been like
Anyone have anything positive to say about unlimited PTO? Have you taken more than 3-4 weeks since the shift?
I passed on a company that a recruiter shared with me due to concerns about culture. Should I be honest if asked for my feedback?
Anyone here has experience with Temenos Bangalore? Need a n honest suggestion whether its a safe company to join from a job security and work culture perspective? Your inputs will help me take a correct decision.
Hi Fishes, I have offers for senior analyst Data Science from Tata Consultancy X - 6 lpa @Netradyne for X + 1 lpa MiQ for X lpa Tiger Analytics for X lpa Genpact for X +1 lpa Which one is better in terms of learning, growth and work culture YOE 2.5 years
New-ish to the freelance world and in discussions with a reputable company for a gig. Problem is, they expect nights and weekends but don’t offer OT. Getting a day rate, not project rate. Sound odd?
Have a little over 5 YOE & several manager level roles with experience in change management, SaaS, technology implementations, Salesforce, healthcare. Making $135k now - what roles can I look for with this experience / a pay bump? Would love to move into health/life sciences tech (or any tech company) & looking into both FAANG-type roles and smaller startups. Any advice on specific companies / roles to look into?
So, a month ago I was offered a data engineer position at a fintech firm. I was going to accept it. The interview process had taken over a month. Then, at the last minute, an old coworker/friend - who is a manager at FAANG now - randomly offered me a data engineer __contractor__ position at a FAANG. The rate was really good - more than the fintech company was offering as annual salary. Rate was 160/HR and fintech was 275K TC. The benefits are ok - it’s a W2 contractor. But I’m thinking of...
What benefits, perks, and other work life balance things would you like your consulting firm to have in an ideal world?
I just had an interview and really hope I get the position. But even if I do, I think they are gonna offer me 75K and I have 3 busy seasons under my belt. I feel like that is too low for me to leave..
Anyone up to get a drink before the big snowstorm this weekend? M/F welcome. North Cap Hill area. 30M. Looking for chill people, literally only met one new person since covid started.
Anyone moved from core tax to M&A as a manager (internal transfer, to other big 4, etc)? I know the things they do are completely different, I wonder if it’s even possible to move as a manager?
Curious to know if anyone who’s moved from EM/PL/AP MBB role is happy? Moved to an S&O role at Meta and I’m struggling to see much benefit other than better WLB/less pressure. S&O in tech feels second-class citizen (lower influence), work isn’t as meaningful, slower and less clear career growth, slower comp trajectory. Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.
Anybody curious how Sanders still hasn’t learned his lesson about creating divisions inside the party and trash-talking female candidates?
2nd job? I’m currently working as a financial analyst at a startup. Most of my day is free and I feel like I can take on another remote job. Has anyone done this here?
I'm throwing a party for my best friend. Can anyone recommend the best Hilton hotel in Chicago? Looking to get two nice rooms.
One of my instructional aides informed me that another aide is taking Snapchats of our synchronous virtual lessons. I'm fuming. What do I do?
Leaving insurance company. $1M GDC and going indie. I'm paranoid about downloading client data including all the planning I've done over past decade. Any insights or best practices? Am I too paranoid?
It's great when your project manager messages you at 5:30 telling you "shit hit the fan in QA" when the project was due at 5! #not #willbealongnight
does anyone feel that the exercise culture in consulting can be toxic? I’m all for exercise, but I feel like the consultants I know overdo it or spend $$$ to go to fancy exercise classes.
Is SPG platinum free breakfast available for both room guests if only one has status? Seeing some conflicting info online
