NYC market. Wonder how many people got this. Free lunch is cool, would it be frowned upon to order a nice glass of scotch?


Got the same email!


From EY right?





What market??

Order wtvr you want dude - they asked you to come

EY is thirsty.

I bet EY is thirsty. Did you see the other threads? They are bleeding out. Seems they get rid of all their staff and rehire every year. Hmmmm does that keep the lower levels working hard to impress and profits fatter at the top? Does PwC do the same thing? Competition is keeping workers running hard, not smart but hard.

EY doesn't typical get rid of staff. I would say this is an unusual year and it's mostly in the markets affected by the drop in oil. I don't think it's a competitive environment overall and I work in NYC FSO. They're aggressively trying to increase their profits to reach vision 2020

I know a partner in NYC who recently went from PwC to EY.....hmm

@PwC4 I do also... It's probably the same guy :)

Just realize how many of your peers got this same message. If you are gone during this period others might know where you've gone.

What LOS Op?

Hi All,

How's work culture for LTI Salesforce projects ?

Please help!


I logged into FB today to go in the marketplace and saw that my brother is reposting stupid far right content/ pro-Trump content (he is Latino). I literally want to barf. Talking all this boot licking, pull yourself by the boot straps talk while he lives in a house that is owned by my parents which is heavily subsidized because he is “family.” The same guy who was dishonorably discharged from the military for not fulfilling his duties. I clapped back and it took all my senses to not drag him. 🤡

I'm wanting to advance to a lead/supervisor position but I keep being turned down because I don't have enough supervisory experience. I have 5+ years in medical coding, 3 in medical records and 10 in accounting. I've mostly worked in smaller facilities where I've taken on numerous roles under one title. How am I supposed to gain supervisory experience if no one will give me a chance?


I’m 24 and I feel lonely. It’s so hard making meaningful friendships at this stage in my life and I’m so depressed about it. I’m stuck with my high school friends and don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for them but I just want to meet new people and build new relationships already. I currently wfh and am in a long term relationship. How do I make new friends and keep them? I tried bumble but that failed completely. Seems like all people want to do now is find other people to go clubbing with ☹️

Hi Fishes,

I am currently working as an associate consultant in Infosys. But my work is of manual+automation testing. I want to switch now, but I am confused b/w Business Analyst and Automation tester role, which role would be better for me to switch? Also regarding salary which is a high paying role among the two?

Experience-3 years


I have been approached by 3 separate HR people at a startup company to interview for a position. I already have a fulltime job that pays well and I only started 6 months ago too. Anyways, the pay was intriguing and the job was a high level scientific advisor so I did interviews. At the last interview, at the end I was told the job was for management but I prepared for a different kind of interview. I am waiting for an offer or rejection letter. I feel peeved that they wasted my time. Red flags?

I feel angry at everything all the time and always snap at my loved ones. I hate myself for this and I feel so powerless. I don’t want to be like this and I try to stop this but I can’t.
