Currently live in NYC - interviewing for a client side role in Austin. Have done Glassdoor research, but any intel on what % pay cut to expect? Don't want to ask for a number that's far too high.
What do you do when you’re on a client so short staffed and asked to do so much in so little time that you are afraid to have your name in the file?
MBA folks, what prep material did you use to prep for consulting interviews? School resources or case in point?
American Airlines: delay my flight for 4 hours. Reschedule it to this morning 30 minutes before rescheduled departure. Cancel flight completely in the middle of the night. 🙌🏻
Recruiter (in west coast) said on Monday he will provide an update later in the week if Im selected for a role I’ve been interviewing for the past 2 months. The wait is killing me. Called in sick because I was too anxious to do any work and lost all motivation. Should I reach out for an update now or wait til end of the day?
I've pulled out of my positions this week, and gone to 100% cash. Decided it was best for my mental health to stay out of the market until three election. I know that time in the market beats timing the market... But I've decided to do this anyways because I have a really strong gut feeling. Screw it.
Do agencies have to triple bid? If you know an external production house can do a better job at a better price, but the agency is not telling the client because they want higher margins....
Didn't realize daylight savings occurred until I left the client office with the sun still up. Feels weird.
Is it fair to say that your first/early job has a huge impact on the future of your career? Depending on the difficulty of the client and the project you’re able to make, that determines where you end up for mid level. Then that just snowballs. For example if you were at a well known agency, you’ll probably get noticed by other well known agencies. If you were at a client-driven agency people think you don’t have good ideas at all. Is it easy to switch trajectories? Am I nuts for thinking this?
Live in a 2 bed condo, 2 kids under 3, and in laws temporarily staying with us to help out. It’s impossible to WFH during the day. Stuck in a closet and my productivity is rock bottom. Any ideas for places outside the home I can work from during the day? Has anyone successfully convinced building security to let them into their office?
For CRT utilization calculation, do they look at July through April, which means May and June are months where you can be on the bench without penalization? Anyone knows the true source for this?
I'm going to take my shot asking this question: Anyone separate from their husband for years, but delayed the divorce intentionally for financial reasons? (health insurance for kids, pensions, stock.)
Fish friends. Nanny question... hired new nanny in Oct after beloved live in of 6+ years retired. New nanny’s mom got sick after she was with us for about 4 weeks so she is now off for 3 weeks (cont)
I have both the Marriott and spg cards. Does anyone know if I'll get 2 free nights and double the yearly nights in August? Trying to determine if I should cancel one
