Someone in an HR session asked how Diversity and Inclusion retention/promotion efforts could negatively impact people who aren't "diverse." That's a bad look bruh.
Found out a colleague received same promotion I did, and did considerably less work. Do I go to management and complain? Or just chalk it up as life is unfair?
Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
Anyone ever leave a job, start a new job and go back to their old job? Why? How soon? Did you get a raise when you went back? Let me know! Thanks!
How long should you work at a firm before you start looking for opportunities? I’ve heard it’s wise to wait until a promotion otherwise you get the stigma that you’re a job hopper. Also, what’s the minimal time you can work on a place and put it on your resume?
Any full time non flex time moms out there? My husband and I both work in public and I'm pretty sure I'll get a promotion next year and he's talked to his coach about moving depts but we can't cont
Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
I’m up for promotion this year. Is it worth finding another opportunity now, or would it benefit me to stay until promotion and then begin looking? For info I’m an SA > SS. Thanks
When did you get your first promotion, what was your title change, and how much of a pay increase did you experience?
Are EY Promotion Bonuses locked in on October 1st? Or October 15th? I’m wondering if a newly promoted Senior leaves the firm between October 2nd - 14th will they forfeit the Senior Promotion Bonus...
Ok, got my promotion, time to jump!!
Thinking about switching to FDD after finishing my second audit busy season (currently a staff but up for senior promotion in June). Should I jump at the staff level or stay a few more years and try to jump at the senior level?
I have been here since 8AM. Worked most of the day Sunday from 12 -6. Why is the day going by so sloooooowly. Time can heal so much. But not my shitty raise and desire to jump ship.
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?
A&M 🐠 - is there typically a base pay raise in non promotion years keeping up with market, inflation, etc.? I am about to go through my first cycle. Thanks! Alvarez & Marsal
After a year of being extremely underpaid, my boss gave me a 30% raise I didn't ask for. Is that normal? Or super generous?
Got an offer to join Bain as a 1st year AC at 2 YOE. Is it worth it for me to negotiate some tenure or is it better for me to start fresh? Assuming I do enter as 1st year AC, does Bain give early promotion if I perform really well? Bain & Company
Can anyone tell me about vizient? Didn’t really know much about them but they’re offering me 33% raise in base from 150 to 200. Just randomly applied a few weeks back.
I am applying for a job at a consulting firm and it seems like the role I am applying for is a step down for me. I am really interested in moving from my current organization but wondering if I should first go through the process for the role advertised and then try to elevate it or rather bring it up front during the initial discussions with HR/hiring manager. Thoughts?
With Google employees unionizing, makes you wonder if other professional service employees could follow. What are the chances something similar happens at Big 4?
With the new covid surge, is anyone else really hesitant to sign a new apartment lease? My lease is up next month, and I pay more to live walking distance from my office and I don’t want to move to burbs if we come back soon, but I don’t want to be stuck paying more in downtown for no reason if this is until January. Kinda hard to plan out the next 12 month in so much uncertainty.
Due to project craziness, I missed twice to enter my weekly timesheet. What are the consequences? Am I in trouble?
For those in relationships (not married), so you spend Mother’s Day with your SO’s mom? Does your SO spend the day with you and your mom? Is your mom inclusive?
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?
So peeps, office opening up. What's your plans on moving to Mumbai? Knowing apartment hunting can be a real bitch, some are planning to go back to hometown in the WFH week. i.e work at office at designated week and live in temporary accommodation, and then travel back.
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
Hello Fishes, I have recently cleared the interviews in Deloitte USI. I had my salary negotiation, 9 days after the last interview. After this, suddenly I had received a mail asking me to submit my personal details on the Avature website, in which I am not able to log in. Reached out to HR, but not getting the link. The team who will release the OL told I need to submit those details, for them to generate and release my OL. Anubody facing this issue or having a suggestion for me?
Ok y’all - just found out I am pregnant (~8 wks) which explains the nausea and exhaustion. How did y’all make it through meetings? Especially limiting caffeine intake. Dying over here!

Does anyone have any malicious compliance stories? Where folks comply to their EMs or Customers ... at the expense of the EM or Customer.
Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”
Joining Strategy&/PwC soon but have a pre planned vacation. Recruiter had mentioned that it shouldn't be a problem and we can talk as we get closer to joining date to finalize. Has anyone been in the situation before and what do you recommend I do? I'm worried that once onboarded, I won't get my vacation approved
