How do your firms do payroll? This is like the 5th time in 26 months that paychecks weren’t timely deposited. Allegedly, the boss did everything right and this is something in the payroll company. But his stuff is getting crazy and everyone is out on PTO, I’m kinda like: meet minimum ethical obligations and no more. Once or twice, I understand. But this is becoming regular.
Senior PM at Havas in New York— could I ask for 125k and what could I negotiate for more PTO?
Might be a long shot, but wanted to see if this bowl could share any wisdom/insight. A friend has been offered a role as an independent contractor commercial counsel for a pre IPO tech company in NYC (roughly 10-20 hrs/wk) with the possibility of becoming a full time offer. He has roughly 3 yoe and was at a V10 firm doing tech transactions work but took time off for health. Would appreciate any insights into what a reasonable hourly wage would be to offer up in negotiations. Thanks in advance!
Been at EY for more than 5 years and want to stay. But suffering from lack of motivation. Need a long break aside from normal 1-2 week vacation. How hard is it to get approval for 1-2 months leave?
A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA
I just got an SC offer from EY for $100k, no signing bonus. Does that seem reasonable? Do they negotiate vacation days/signing bonus?

Has anyone ever been to the delta hotel by Marriott nayarit? My SO wants to go to an all inclusive so there's less vacation stress with planning meals and such. Looking to find a place that's close to beach and also nature.

Anyone with some guidance on second home/vacation vs investment mortgage? The former seems preferable, and we’d be using it enough personally to fall in the IRS bounds for personal use. We’d plan to use a property manger for convenience of STR, and heard different things about “maintaining exclusive control”. Any advice?

Hey guys! I’ve been approached to join BCG as a senior associate. I’ve been told MBA sponsorship requires either 12-18 months of tenure at BCG. Before I commit to studying for cases, I would appreciate insight into the following:
1) Is it possible to negotiate that down? I want to attend in 2022
2) Are externships open to SA level? Is it possible to negotiate this?
3) How many years post-MBA are you locked into BCG with sponsorship? Do you commit to a single office?

- how does career path looks like?

Something that severely gets into my nerves :
I advise clients on tech and sometimes help them debug stuff. This client told me they tested the solutions I gave and that it didn’t work, and requested a meeting to sort it off. We schedule a meeting. I just inspected their account and they haven’t tested shit, I can see the same code mistakes, they never tried to change anything.
I’m pissed. They’re basically wasting my time and I don’t even see the point in meeting with them.
What are some good Qualifying Questions to find out the following:
Buying window, Budgetary window, Contract window.
I have 2 offers and unsure which to take.
1. Mid-Market SDR that has 90+ SDRs 52k base 73k OTE.
2. Enterprise BDR less than 10 BDRs in US (Germany Based just breaking into US) 55k Base 75OTE.
What are your thoughts? Please help here haha
I'm an SDR and have found it challenging to find alignment with my AE's. We don't really strategize on accounts - something I've been working hard to improve. I'm curious to know what has helped for other SDR's and AE's. I'm always also open to getting feedback even when it's uncomfortable. I just need the support.
I have a final stage interview for AE upcoming with a sales presentation portion.
Anyone willing to share a past presentation either from an interview or otherwise for inspiring/insight?

Unlimited PTO is an accounting trick to make sure they don’t pay your PTO out when you leave.
So true! And makes it harder for you to take any time off.
7 weeks, no bullshit
Nice! Thanks for the feedback.
I usually take 3 weeks off not including holidays (with holidays about 4-5) but many of my colleagues take a lot more time off!
This is helpful thanks!
Will be about 4.5 weeks this year. Unlimited policies are shown that on average, employees use less days (that is what I was told at least) since employees aren't trying to hit a certain number of days off they have in a given year. Also yes if you do not have a bank of PTO hours, there is nothing to pay out if you were to leave.
My experience with the policy is good, they don't want you taking every Friday off for example, but especially if you are on top of things in your role, you should be able to take off time a plenty.
