I need to get a pulse check on my sanity... i live in Michigan, and sports gambling has become legal in the past year. Now every other commercial is about sports gambling, sports announcers are making in game advertisements, I get hit with social media ads, so on and so forth. I’m not against sports gambling, but the constant promotion seems like “corporate America” is taking advantage of addictive human tendencies, and contributing to the perpetuation of wealth inequality in America.. am I nuts
What would you do ? 26 years old, work 9 to 9, work weekends, take an extra load because you can to get to the next promotion. Or work normal hours, workout, enjoy time with family, advance normally.
Hi! I’m a solution analyst, hired on a year ago as a campus hire. What is the typical raise associated with promotion to solution specialist? Is there a merit-based raise as well as a separate promotion raise? Just want an idea of what to expect. I’m also curious regarding the performance splits—how much more of a raise can a top performer expect than an average performer? Thanks!
What has been your experince in pay increase (percentage wise) when promoted to Senior. Trying to get a feel of where I will land after promotion.
How much of a promotion can I expect A to SA?
Promotion decisions are not a meritocracy. Women and minorities at my firm are consistently passed over for white men. Decisions seemed based on how much partners like you more than anything else.
Just moved here after taking what I thought was a decent raise to come - oh my god how do you afford to live here? I’m from downtown Chicago and that’s not cheap - but these taxes, rent prices, car insurance, gas 🤯🤯🤯
Hi friends, I have an offer from TCS giving 30 percent raise. Can anyone provide some insights on TCS culture? Will it be considered a bad move to from EY to TCS and look bad on CV. Some of my colleagues suggesting that not good idea to go from BIG 4 to WITCH. Thoughts please.
Debating if I should go for a promotion that a bunch of people are saying I should go for. Just wondering if it’s a weird time to do it since the higher paid you are, the bigger the target you tend...
For people moving from PwC to EY, what’s the reason for your move? Does EY give you a significant raise which is more than the recent raise announced by PwC?
Are you guys aware of any United status upgrade promotion challenge for Deloitte employees? Moving from gold to platinum or platinum to 1K if you fly ...miles in next 3 months.
Hi everyone! I am promoting my NFT collection with an Instagram page, but I have some doubts regarding IG algorithm. As far as I know, replying to comments etc increases visibility, as it looks like it has more interaction. However, I have many bots that automatically comments immediately every post telling me to DM them for promotion. How should I treat them? Should I reply something, or ignore them or block them? Not sure how IG algorithm would evaluate interacting with bots
I recently moved out of my apartment complex 2 weeks ago and ended my lease early because I had to move for work. The leasing office calls me today and said they “forgot” to bill me for a $1200 rent concession I received when I first moved in (First Month free rent promotion). After looking the lease, I found the clause but I really don’t want to pay especially when they made the mistake on not billing me and are just now following up 2 weeks later. Advice? Ideas? Similar situations?

Disclaimer - not a typical post for this bowl. Wanted to understand more about the mental health services at Google (I already read the high level info on the onboarding portal). I’m starting soon and wanted to ask what Googlers thought of the available resources. My mental health has taken a hit since fall ‘20 - I tried wellness programs through my current employer (counseling and mindfulness) but felt that the providers were more into utilization of the benefit than trying to solve my issues.

I have an offer from maxlinear, they are giving me almost 90% raise from my current CTC but the hr has taken almost a month to process the letter and also I have had rude conversations from her side.

How are peeps balancing client work and interviews at other consulting firms? Are you guys taking time off?
What would you do if you were me? Late 30s. Burned out. 1.4M invested in index funds (75% in in post tax accounts). 4k/month fixed housing expense. Untilites/insurance/subscriptions at 1k/month. After that it's food, clothing, and one-off expenses. Dual income family of 4. Monthly burn rate gets up to 9k when we're not paying attention so I'm not traditional FIRE yet. Coasting options? Sabbatical? A few more years in the salt mines? Rental properties or other time suck investments?
Going to b school not sponsored by Deloitte. Does that mean no bonus because I need to leave by August? :-(

I graduated with a BA in Political Science in 2009 and worked as a Financial Analyst and in Investor Relations after undergrad while completing my MBA. One thing led to another and now I find myself at EY for over four years working financial services focused compliance engagements... I want to get (back?) on the FP&A career path. Any advice? You think I’d need to start at the bottom of the FP&A totem pole?
A wonderful friend recommended me to a recruiter, when the recruiter was looking to place a creative. This role is at a small agency, I’m going to be paired with a Sr. Copywriter. They’re looking for a conceptual thinker and brilliant designer, no pressure. I have some internships and some freelance under my belt since graduating portfolio school, and a current laptop that’s running on fumes ha. I’m intimidated, cautious, yet super grateful to finally hear from someone. Any words of wisdom?
My comp talk this year is titled "compensation and career discussions." Probably reading into the last part too much but that isn't anything to be worried about, right?
