Hi Fishes 🐠,
Hope you are doing great!
I wanted to reach out because I’m currently exploring new opportunities. I have 4 years of experience in project management and business operations. Please help sharing/referring if there is any PMO/Project Management you have.
Just to add, I am currently serving my notice period and will be available to join after 20th Jan'22.
So glad that my first client trip in 3 years coincides with the first two days of my period and a concussion - gonna be so great!! Brain feels so ready!!! Stomach also feels great!!!!
Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

Newbie agency production question. Agency is signatory, client is not and wants non-union VO talent for spots. Is a third party (audio house for example) sourcing, contracting, directing, and paying the talent acceptable as a workaround or does that still fall foul of signatory rules? Can agency creative team be involved at all in the session?
How do you all get prepared for meetings that you have to lead and get decisions made? I hate them with a passion and do better one-on-one with a client than a group.
Anyone have Sr. Accountant level experience in industry before joining a Big4 firm? How do you frame your experience on your external resume after you’ve been with the firm for a while? Do you just include the title and employment dates? Or do you include a detailed account of your duties even though you weren’t client facing?

I was on a crazy deal and ended up billing close to 330 hours in May. Once it closed mid June, the I immediately asked for approval to go on vacation in mid July which was cleared by the partners/assignment team. The same client just let us know they wanted to start diligence for a new deal and asked for the same team (me and 2 other associates). All of us will be out during the same 2 week span in July. We had no idea they had this new deal. I’m worried I’ll be told to cancel my vacation…

Anyone ever successfully negotiate their partner cash distributions? I’m a very new partner, yet running and growing a book far greater than average size for the firm. Am I stuck in the basic new partner comp structure for~ 5 years or is it reasonable to expect I’ll get compensated for my contributions today? I’m tired of chasing carrots; what’s a reasonable/ “fair” % of my book to expect allocated to me each year? Is 20% asking too much? I’m tax at a top 6 firm.
If I’m leaving my current company for a new job and I really like the printer my current company gave me for WFH at the start of COVID, can I make them an offer to buy it from them?

Seeing many posts about marriage material so continuing the trend... how important is sex chemistry? Does it fade away even if it’s great at first? What if you never had it to begin with? SO checks all the box except for this. We’ve shared our feedback and preferences many times over a few years but no luck. Only thing stopping me from marriage is this. Am I being too shallow?

Can someone help me understand why people are pumping crazy money into DoorDash and AirBnb but didn’t go equally Gaga for Palantir?
Don’t get me wrong, I like DD and Airbnb, but the $100+/share seems odd to me given that both are susceptible to regulatory and overall consumer confidence. I was able to buy into PLTR for $11/ share fwiw and think that company has better long-term upside prospects.
But again, would love to better understand the DASH and ABNB mania. Feel like I’m missing something

How likely is google to change its stance on returning to the office? I’m evaluating 2 offers right now - both are very similar (pay, job function, etc.) except google is in-office. I’m so comfortable at home and can spend more time cooking and exercising when I’m not commuting. Google is obviously a better brand than my other offer, but I’m not sure if that is enough to make it worth it.
Can anyone give an idea regarding the grade & Salary range offered to a Data Analyst position at Optum so that I can negotiate accordingly.
