So what’s the deal with OT for juniors in NYC? Did they raise the threshold again? I know only the big holding companies do it
My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣
Just started my first post-college job, based in nyc: assuming the office doesn’t open for the next 12+ months, should I continue wfh at my parents house in the middle of nowhere and save $30k over the course of the year (but basically throw away a year of my social life), or move to nyc in a few months w some roommate friends? How’s the city looking nowadays?

Started freelancing last year after being laid off and have been trying to make short term stints work until I find the right gig. However, I feel that most opportunities I can get end up being less than ideal. Dry clients (pharma), chaotic schedules and supplemental work that would never make my portfolio. Debating taking a full time job I’m not that excited about just to get out of this cycle.... Not sure if freelancing just isn’t for me or it’s the current climate. Any advice?
Should I reach out to the recruiter for the final offer? I got an email from recruiter last week saying they would like to initiate the offer process and asked my salary expectation. I replied with my answers but haven’t heard back since then. Should I reach out? Or that might impact my negotiating position for pay.
Does anyone know if there is anything like short term disability coverage for mental health leave of absence from work?

Partners in BIG 4: How is your leadership reacting to location changes requested by partners? My firm is struggling to keep the people back in major cities as partners wants to move to sunny areas with no taxes. I can see both sides of the argument but trying to figure where we are likely to land.
If your firm agreed to match the salary/benefits you would get if you accepted another offer, would you stay? What would the downsides be (other than the typical b4 hours)?
Does anyone have suggestions for making an election to the 'senior bonus'? (Early career investment bonus)
Have offer at interesting late stage startup, 135k base 15k bonus and approx 20-25k in stock grants annually. Feels a bit on the low side but it's a decent raise in any case (7 years consulting xp plus MBA). Worth negotiating for 5-10k more in base?
Has anyone successfully negotiated their contracts in the Big4? If so, how did you do it and how did it go? I’m an S1, will get my raise in October... BUT… The market is hot right now, and I can leave an make more— but I would like the opportunity to stay and them bargain with me to stay since we are short staffed. Again, I understand I can leave, so don’t make that comment. Any insight or advice is welcome. KPMG EY PwC Deloitte
Liberty Mutual Corp Strategy and Research, insights to career progression, salary, prestige vs Big 4 consulting? I don’t want to stay in Boston, not sure if the opp makes it worth staying
KPMG or Deloitte? I have Manager offers from both. Former consultant going back after 4 years in industry. Salary is the same, both are Change Management roles (KPMG Transformation Delivery, Deloitte Human Capital). My best friend works at BCG and thinks I should go Deloitte for brand / future opportunities, but I find myself leaning KPMG as I think WLB might be better? Would love insights.
