AE shoes - once you break them in they love your feet. The initial dating period is strained though.

Tumi luggage - my wife loves it because it’s stylish. I hate it because their quality is crap and they don’t stand by their guarantees.

So true. They totally don’t stand by their guarantees and it’s the most frustrating thing ever.

My AE shoes are super comfortable. All real leather dress shoes have a break in period. AE was much easier than my Meermins.

Hello People,

3 questions for ya'll:

1) Do we need to sign an employment bond, if we are offered an opportunity to go secondment/STA for few days/months with an onshore entity of the PwC Network?

2) Since secondment opportunity is offered to a select few, what does it mean for that individual in terms of growth, in terms of compensation and designation.

3) Can we negotiate and get a pay raise before signing an employment bond?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve been trying to dig into the files myself and ask as many questions as I can, but sometimes I don’t even know the right questions to ask. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
