Just want everyone to know I’m considering something crazy. Very crazy, and very exciting. We’ll see how it plays out.
Would you take a 10% pay cut to switch to the industry side ? Why or why not? (Context: WLB will be only be ‘slightly’ better based on my experience with this client team.)
So I was given an assignment with no timeline. Like an idiot, I proposed a deadline and then was overloaded with work. I let the assigning partner know I wouldn’t meet the deadline and I proposed a new deadline which I’ve now blown by a day. I’m nearly done and will finish tonight. Do I say anything about the deadline missing? Usually I’m not so far off base
Hi CTS fishes
Any manager or manager+ here who can help in knowing about the increment for 2022 and the percentage to expect for every rating. Cognizant
Had anyone flown with their cat before? I might need to take my cat with me and she's an absolute nightmare when it comes to unfamiliar places/people. I'm worried if I have to take her out of the carrier at TSA she won't get back in.
Anyone else feeling grateful to be in public right now? So many industries are going to be hit so hard...
I just turned the heating on. Wtaf. 🥶
How do you all handle cheats/holidays?
My family is in town and ive already cheated 🙈 (accidentally at first by grabbing nachos, then intentionally 🍻).
Obvi I won’t be in ketosis...
Anyone successfully book multiple rooms with points? Perhaps even at a discounted point rate? (I.e thing booking rooms over a weekend for wedding guests)
Privacy fish - Anyone taken the CIPM and can share what the exam is like?
Content outline seems like application of standard consulting approach, so how do they test it on an exam?
Breaking even in 3 years!!
Is it hard to switch from a senior level risk practice at a big 4 to a marketing position at another company and not have to start from entry level (keep senior title)?

Been single for a little over a year and can’t get over my ex. I’m embarrassed to admit that I think about them every day, sometimes multiple times. Anytime I get a little intimate with someone (physically or emotionally) I get sad because I miss them. How do you move on?!
I’m an aggressive person. I know it’s not a very feminine trait, which gets me into trouble. Sometimes I feel that guys feel intimidated cause I have such clear cut opinions of what I want. I don’t want to alienate people but I also don’t want to lose myself. Anyone else go through this?
Only helpful nice comments please, already feeling a little perturbed. For reference think of Brianna in Grace & Frankie. That’s kinda me..
Hi ladies, anyone ever used Costco/Sam's club/Wholes Food cake as their wedding cake? I'm not a big fan of sweets/cakes in general. But I do love a good chocolate cake that is DONE right (not overly sweet or artificial tasting, I'm kinda picky when it comes to sweets). Looking for a 3 tier chocolate and plain white cream on the outside!
Real talk - do I deal with it or bring it to HR about a sexual comment of men just wanting to sleep with me from a drunk super senior leader if I don’t know if they are influential?
Insight: looking to move south as I don’t have anything tying me down anymore. At 26 and single, looking for a good dating scene - thinking maybe Tampa, Charleston, Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta, and DC
Ladies, need advice.
I have a friend I’ve known for 15+years. We both moved & worked a lot, been super busy with our lives, but maintained a close relationship over these years.
We’ve met recently for dinner after not seeing each other for half a year and I felt a spark... We both have been single for a while, are in our mid 30ies and live in the same city now. I really feel I like him and it’s a very new feeling, but super afraid to show it, since I have no idea how he feels. Cont’d
Should I get a new therapist?
I've been seeing one for a few months but don't really get much out of it. Recently I was telling them about my relationship with my parents (that tend to show narcissistic qualities) and they responded with "oh you know, it's a different generation, they grew up in a conservative country" and said it's reassuring that my siblings/cousins feel the same.
Am I crazy for thinking this isn't a great response?
Anyone else on here who is tired of performing femininity? I am comfortable with my gender, just not the pervasive, performative aspects of it
Starting a job search to look for an industry role, and dreading the process. Any advice, encouragement or tips?
My boyfriend said he doesn’t know if he sees a future with me. For context, we’re both young: early 20s. Wait it out for a minute or run now?
Anyone here have a companion? W/ a wonderful person, but we aren’t the same religion and not sure we want to get married. Strongly considering solo adoption. Any experience with this kind of dynamics?
Ladies- Is it common that a teammate (not the manager) asks you to present a deck to the clients right before the meeting even though you weren’t included in any discussions to put together the slides? This happened to me. I am not at senior level, but feeling I would be judged if I say no.
Eventually we did not present because of the time but I still would like to know your thoughts about it.
Hi ladies - best perfume recommendations? Especially looking for something versatile to travel with, with some upcoming trips abroad and for work!
Ladies, how would you have responded? I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend when he suddenly goes “Now that all companies practice gender equality what is the need for women specific conventions like Grace Hopper. What if there were male specific conventions/conferences like that? How would that make you feel? “ I was very drunk and not proud of how I responded. I basically told him off and recounted all the instances where I have been at a disadvantage because of my gender.
I just got an offer from PepsiCo Foods for an entry level manager at L5. I did two terms of my coop there so makes sense. But it’s for a year from now when I graduate. The pay is $72,500 with bonus and benefits and relocation money. I can’t see myself there but I could for more money but I know it’s the maximum they will offer. Is this a good offer for a entry level material engineer? And if I were to accept the position now is it ok to decline if I get a better offer closer to starting?
3 yrs ago, I had to return to my country (EU) as my work visa expired in the US (was in NYC). My closest friends are still there. Some remain so, while one was beginning to feel distant, even rude...
