Am I ever going to get past the self doubt mode? I feel like every time I speak or do anything, I just sit and think about whether I should have said or done it. I get worried I am wrong or overstepped. I am constantly worried I will get fired for being incompetent. Gah, I wish I could just trust in myself.
I have been on my SO’s case about drinking. He is unemployed and has been laid off. He has been having drinks 3x a week. One or two glasses a session. I drink 2-3x a month. I say it is too much. He’s Irish and I’ve lived in Ireland. People binge drink the entire weekend until they fall over. Someone who comes home from work drinks one dram of whiskey every night. This is normal. Americans define this as alcoholism.Do you think this is a cultural difference or actual excessive drinking?
Raise your hand if you work on a brand that used this opportunity to launch and thinly veiled money grab posed as a “goodwill” campaign!
Risk of getting fired as a new experienced hire in HC with solid 3 ratings and tons of impactful PRD, but on the bench for too long?
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
Currently on parental leave. As a father I’m so dang thankful my firm has it and I can’t imagine how my immigrant parents manage to raise two kids without leave.
I know as a new hire, your utilization can't really hurt you if it's low be they understand you're new, but for those that have been fully utilized since starting, can that benefit us (higher raise?)
Hi Guys, can anyone tell me when does a promotion take effect (officially) for PwC SDC Bangalore?
I’m planning on asking for a raise for the first time in my career and I want to list out my accomplishments but I don’t want to seem cocky about it. (cont’d)
Let’s say one of us gets laid off. Does it benefit our search in relation to opportunities through LinkedIn contacts if we don’t update our employment status? Does it hurt? Does it matter?
Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I wanted to be supportive CHAZ/CHOP here in Seattle but I can’t be anymore. This is no longer a BLM movement protest (which I fully support & protest with) but instead is true anarchy. 1 dead & 1 injured (critical condition) this weekend and tonight over 24 shots fired already tonight in the area. When I first went down to this area last week I felt safe, today I went down there & was scared out of my mind. Seattle get your sh*t together.
Wondering what the thousands of women, BIPOC and LGBTQ laid off since March are thinking as they watch all the agency leaders declare their commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity at the 3% conference this week. It has to seem almost humorous. Almost.
I suddenly got laid off due to restructuring :( and currently have my H1B approval. I’d really appreciate your advice on finding a job within 60 days in consulting, strategy/operations, or product management. If anyone is willing to refer, I have 2YOE management consulting and ~8 months of startup growth experience.
So I love my coworkers and my boss, and I don’t want them to think I’m unhappy but I do need a raise. Is it off putting for me to go to them and say I got another offer? I just feel like it’s a little awkward for them to know I’ve been going on other interviews
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j

Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after

Anyone else with big 4 experience looking to find a rewarding career path with an undergrad degree in accounting? What career options are out there without having to go back to school?
Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
Prestige or 30% better take home salary?
