Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.

I just got my second promotion in 3 months. The salary I’ve been offered is less than what I was expecting and could get elsewhere. Can I ask for more or is there no negotiation at promotion stage?
Amlaw 100- what’d your raise look like this year? I didn’t hit my hours, but was not far off, and got great performance reviews... then ended up with a 3% raise. Last year was a 7% raise
Hi Friends, I need urgent help. Suppose in experience letter my designation is test specialist but in candidate form of EY I gave senior test specialist. Will it be problem? Actually after getting promotion I thought I became senior test specialist so gave senior test specialist in EY form. As next band is for senior people and I wrote as senior test specialist. But later I saw it was test specialist designation in my current company. Will that create problem in verification?
I am from public acctg and a Senior for 5 years. I’ve had this conversation on my promotion to Manager and was told I need another year. I feel demotivated and getting frustrated that they do not see me as someone who can be a Manager.
Is there such thing as early promotion in the Big4? If I don’t get promoted this October, when is the earliest I can get promoted?
I make low 60k (plaintiffs PI), and I’m a third year attorney, if I ask for a 10% raise this year am I crazy? (I grew a ton in last year, took on new tasks and was given more responsibility in cases). Tips? Advice?
More and more colleagues are claiming that bringing a job offer from the competition is the fastest way to get a promotion from mgr to sr mgr and/to MD, do you agree?
So managers, when someone really smart is working for you, how you do you balance your personal interest (him/her continuing to work for you) and giving them an opportunity to flourish outside your team if it becomes available? My manager just made a comment about a colleague who is honestly great and deserving of a promotion, but that would mean he leaves our team.
Anyone here located in the San Francisco Bay Area? Wondering how much you’re making as an EA, years of experience, industry and what city? Want to get an idea on how much I should ask for my raise. Thanks!
Interested in hearing from the Sr Mgrs (and recently promoted PPEDs) on how transparent the process for promotion to PPED is. And how the annual SM rating process operates.
I have a codebase that's deeply complex and would take someone else months just to learn how to use it. Should I use this as leverage to ask for a raise?

Just finished my compensation meeting at work, got my promo and a really nice raise that pushed me into the six figure club. If you had asked me 5 years ago if I'd ever be making this much money or be having this much success I would have laughed. My wife is super happy for me and has been a big support but I'm secretly starting to resent the fact I settled for her. If I had known I could do this well in life I would have waited and done so much better than her 😕

Finished my MBA and recieved a Senior Consultant offer from EY (3YOE). The pay (90 base+ 10 signing) is what I was making in manufacturing ops pre-MBA (with a guaranteed raise of 10% every year).

Accepted an offer, but the day before another company came at to interview. They offer more pay, better benefits, works more in line with what I want. But they haven't given me an offer yet, I just have a very good feeling. If I do get offer 2 how bad is it to go back on offer 1?
Hi FB family - seeking some help for my soon to be graduating son. He has an interview with capital one. He’s cleared other stages thus far. This last one he’s pretty intimidated by because it includes some type of case interview where the Capital One team will share a pseudo code type case. Anyone know what the format of that interview is? What type of case to expect? Appreciate any guidance on how to prep. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone have any resources they can share to prepare for Product Marketing Manager interviews? Been browsing through Google but wanted to get people’s recommendations as well.
