Raise your hand if you've almost spilled coffee on yourself while purposely ignoring a beautiful girl in the hallway only so that she thinks that you have shit goin on in your life
What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw? I have had pretty rich experience for in-house (leading internal investigations, directly reporting to management on risks/legal issues, etc.). I recently moved to NYC (my company’s headquarters) but would love to go into Biglaw. Promotion seems to be an uphill battle at my company unless u r from Biglaw. How to start networking and get my foot in the Biglaw door?
When will American stop the “limited time”in-flight credit card promotion......it make me irrationally angry and I find it rude to disrupt passengers with this ad. Am I crazy?
Are any of you CDs that were promoted to GCDs at small to mid-size agencies where the creative department is not technically divided into groups? If so, what added responsibilities were assigned to you with the promotion? I don’t work at a large agency with the traditional pyramid structure of a GCD having multiple CDs on specific accounts reporting to him/her. I work on 14 accounts.
EY 🐠 at what level are seniors eligible for promotion taking in to account that they are capable and ready, is it at the beginning of senior 3 or end of year 3?
Reasonable wait time on a Rolex explorer 1? No established relationship with an AD. Would be looking to purchase in the fall after promotion (fingers crossed)
Expecting a CMAAS experienced associate offer from Pwc transferring from audit. When can i expect a senior promotion and what is the salary i can expect? Is it negotiable?
Ever get annoyed at how happy the partners/MDs are at work everyday knowing it’s probably because they’re making $Mlns from the project? If I see one more “Happy Monday so blessed to be at this client” I’m asking for a raise
I am looking to start a new fundraiser next year to raise money for our after school program. I want something unique but also easy to manage.
I wish Ad salaries were like NBA salaries. Each year you get a ridiculous raise no matter how shitty you perform. If you are good you get bird rights and no layoff clauses. And retire at 35.
A1-A2 tax, 6% raise and 3% VC. Thoughts?
Who here has experience using an outside offer to negotiate your pay at Deloitte? I know I’m valued (off cycle raise/retention bonus in addition to market adjustment coming)… but still 30 - 40k underpaid compared to what I’m seeing in the market. I like Deloitte and the work I do so I’d like to try and make it work, but know I need to play hard ball to see action. Would really appreciate advice and or tips for this process!
What is the typical career progression for an average to above average performer at McKinsey? Would be helpful to get context on title and comp progression from undergrad to EM level. Mainly asking bc I heard the two main paths are 2 years as BA > EM or out with the rare promotion to ASC for those who started out of undergrad. But 2 years to manager seems pretty difficult and how would BCG/Bain compete with that? McKinsey & Company
Got offered a position at another agency, title promotion and close to 30% salary increase. I do love my current agency but it feels stupid not to take this right? I guess I’m just nervous about going somewhere new.
Been a mobile dev for two years at my current company, and for the last 6 months been working alone (used to have a second developer). I asked manager for a raise and he said ‘it looks bad to ask’ is this a normal response? He said you should let management come to you with an offer and not the other way around.
Ok, let's go there...Gas! How do you handle it with kids, and then if you, yeah, YOU have to pass it!? I have a gas corner for my Kindergarten kids to go to, even if it's in the middle of a lesson.
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.

Where do B4 people live in NYC? Moving there next month as senior associate in advisory and looking for ideas
Is consulting really even worth it anymore if I have to pay for my own food now and travel moving forward is going to be at the max 1/3 of what it used to be (if things are ever “normal” again) so all those benefits we forced ourselves to accept as worth are now gone?
What is the expense policy for meals while traveling? This is what I see online but it doesnt seem to provide anything besides “reasonable”. Is the policy really that lax?

From one HR to the other - what do we think about the level of diversity shown in this vid released by my employer earlier today? I think they‘ve done a nice job trying to feature a good mix but might‘ve actually „overdone“ it?
