Does anyone do extra work for your company that you are not being compensated for? I’m not talking going above and beyond. I joined our newly created ESG committee and instead of just a volunteering role to channel my passion, it has turned into steering ESG strategy. I enjoy it, but we’ve now had the committee for 1+ yr and there’s no sign that it becomes formalized into our “day job” roles or formal acknowledgment. I would be happy with a bottle of champagne at this point. Thoughts?

How long would you say a new job takes before you’re fully competent? My brother started a data scientist position 2 months ago and his manager said in a meeting last week that his “brand” is that he slow to respond to data requests compared to the previous person, and that there’s usually something wrong with the data he sends. I feel like 2 months is way too soon to expect someone to perform at the same level as someone who was there for over 2 years, what does everyone else think?

Thinking of taking a SM role in consulting. Role is in the NY area for big 4. What is the base salary and bonus range I should be looking for?

Need career advice: in industry, took a job in the function I want but not the exact team to hopefully internally move later. Just found out that our team is looking to hire someone who would focus on what I actually want to do (however position hasnt been approved yet and no idea if it truly aligns but based on the name it does). I haven’t really been upfront with my interests in doing more work related to the team I want but have dropped subtle hints. Worth being upfront? More in comments

I was thinking of pivoting to an ESG related position. Does anyone here have experience working within this service line and/or have any advice/suggestions (I.e obtaining certain certs , etc.)? Not much info about ESG experiences within the big 4 online but it does seem interesting given the ambiguity around it. Thanks!

Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.
