Looking to exit to a tech company - has anyone ever approached a DEI person at the company you are applying to on LinkedIn? Is this something worth pursuing or should I just apply directly?
Is it normal for PwC to downgrade you from a sr position you applied on their job portal to a experienced associate? I was told I will be fast tracked and the offer they gave me is on par with the base salary of a SA. Seems like I can’t negotiate the position.

Just got a leadership role over 2 other people who had way more exp than me. When I asked why esp since the other guys have a lot more knowledge and SME was told it was because of my energy and enthusiasm. Never thought soft skills would win out over hard skills. Happy Friday everyone!
My fabulous legal assistant is leaving at the end of the year to focus on her mayoral campaign. I live in a very rural area & there are no legal assistants around. Everyone applying have just worked at hospital as assistants. I don’t have time to hold their hand. I need someone running from the start. My friend moved back to the area and she is interested in becoming a paralegal. Any tips/suggestions on what sites, online education, etc to refer her to. I’m at the point of hiring a virtual asst.
What was your hiring process like in big 4 NYC office? How did you apply? How long before they reached out for an interview? Any feedback is appreciated!
Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Project ended suddenly and had to cancel my flights. How can I capitalize on travel credit? Or do policies restrict this?
When do you know it’s time to move on to a new agency? I’m coming up on my first year and feeling very apathetic about my employer right now. It’s not that we haven’t produced great work or that my team gives negative vibes... but I feel an urge to move. I was feeling this pre-covid but after them not really doing much in response to blm and getting approached by a couple recruiters should I start biting? I know grass isn’t always greener but I kinda want to see for myself.

PwC 🐬 do you know if we can book rooms and car directly from the hotel and car hire websites with the Corporate AMEX and code instead of Voyager? I get some cashback doing it on the websites.
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)
I will have my BCG experienced hire interview in two weeks, what are some last minute thing I can do? Keep casing?
I used my corporate AMEX for personal. Haven't paid my portion to AMEX around $3000yet. It's been 6months and AMEX hasn't charged late fees neither has it come on credit report. How long can I delay?
For JHI....what is your school/classroom policy on cell phones? We have a policy but it’s not really followed so each teacher does their own thing. It’s a nightmare!
Is anyone else in franchise sales? I’m new sales (4 months in) and struggling to connect with prospects and fill my pipeline. Any advice would be helpful.
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
