I had a dream that I forgot to mute on a weekend firmwide call, began gossiping with my roommie about who's fucking who & what a fluid-covered mess it was, &my boss fake fired me to teach me a lesson
Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
Any Oracle folks from other firms interested in coming to play for Uncle D? I'm looking for people in Financials (EBS/PS/Cloud) and Supply Chain. Crazy strong pipeline, empty bench.

If you filed I-485 are you in status if you quit or are laid off and have enough time to basically find a new job until you get your interview? Im trying to understand what happened in the days when eb based gc didn’t require an interview and someone was laid off
Is there just not a lot going on this week? I've been trying to get some PD work this week since on the bench and haven't been able to get anything.
1. Industry wide question: is your bench heavy? 2. Accenture Strategy question: Do you feel like there's not enough work to go around, and the work that is available isn't teaching you much?
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
What do you do when you're on the bench? Apparently I'm being picked up next week, but my team hasn't sent me any prep materials. I'm helping for 2-3 hrs per day, but the rest of the time......nada.
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Would you choose an investment job at a private, partner-owned long only fund where you’re guaranteed to never lose your job& can be a multimillionaire; or at a very top L/S HF where the bottom performers are fired each year, but you could make multimillions in a good year? Another related q, would you forego the offer at the first place to potentially get the offer at the second place, knowing it’s very competitive? Assume you’re target background, at another top fund, good work ethics
1st time on the bench in 3 years. Check out demand portal: "wtf is this shit?" No wonder everyone is unstaffed and getting the boot.
PWC folks, what is an expected salary for a senior associate in a tier 1 city? Looking to negotiate my offer.
I am soon 2 Years at BCG, but my ratings make it unlikely that I make the promotion to C - what are my options? Will BCG help me find another job / give me paid notice to search for new opportunities? Outside of consulting, what would be a realistic position to aim for after 2 years A?
EY 🐠, is it normal to have only 2 interviews and get an offer after a week? I have had 2 b2b interviews in one day, both went great with a SM and M. I think I am fairly under qualified for the position but received an offer. Any thoughts on lack of communication with the recruiter, yet receiving an offer? If anyone is willing to DM I can provide more details and seek further feedback
If I reimburse $X and the company adds $X to my paycheck I’m losing money right? Since I get taxed on the $X in the paycheck and end up with less then I spent
How did you get an interview at MBB? Referral or online application? Or maybe contacting the recruiter on LinkedIn? I’m with 2YOE in healthcare/analytics consulting. Recently looking to move forward to MBB. Appreciate any suggestion!
On H1b with an approved i-140 and transfering to a new employer. Will there be an issue if I have a 1-2 week gap between the two employers. My transfer has been approved but couldnt align the start and end dates. Example - Current employer wants to end this week but can't start at new employer until mid next month due to relocation etc.
I was supposed to go out of town this weekend but I’ve been up most of the night because I’m sick 🙄🥺 Now I just feel sad and bored, so much for celebrating on being vaccinated 🥲
Currently a first year senior in regional firm. I just got off the phone with a recruiter at big 4 and they want to offer experienced staff position with almost $10k lower salary. Any thoughts?
Applied for a position. Adding and requesting intro calls with anyone at that company on LinkedIn. Also reached out to firm/school alumni and recruiters at that company. Anything else I can do?
Should I take the Siegfried job? They gave me a competitive package and also helped with relocation. Is this a good move out of audit? Alao interviewing with FDD but just started. Is Siegfried bad?
Been severely struggling with depression and anxiety lately. Obviously this job is one big reason why. I opened up to the partner a few months back about it when I started missing random days when I couldn’t get out of bed. Maybe 2/3 days over the last 4 months total. This week he sat me down and told me he is worried about my mental health causing me to be a “liability” to the firm. I can’t stop thinking about this and don’t know how to turn it around.
Can folks on visitor visas travel from India to US? Not up to date with the recent immigration changes around this..TIA..
Overheard an Indian Partner out of the FSO Data and Analytics - NYC practice brag about how he takes advantage of all the benefits without contributing to sales!...there goes my bonus.
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
Parents are flying over from Singapore and considering booking on Korean air. Any idea if it is good? Parents are used to flying a lot, but a little slow with English.
