I come from a pure healthcare background and have minimal finance skills/experience. Want to eventually get in healthcare investing in a MM PE fund. Is there anyway that I can start to make moves on this, while at my Big 4? Who are the best types of folks to reach out to at my Big 4? Anything I should get smart on? Websites, podcasts, books to read?

Came into consulting from financial services to be greeted with a $0 bonus in my first year. I’m not sure why I made the move. Perhaps it was for experience or the travel. But, I’ve come to the realization that money motivates me, and I’ll be venturing back where I belong.
Honestly in Industry now, I can honestly say B4 over tuned my skills. I find that I absorb information faster than my peers and my deliverable time is quicker.
Do you negotiate your salary every year? What is the cadence for your raises/promotion discussion?
What's the average ad salary for a big us city? I'm shocked seeing NYC say 90-95 is average??? (Especially hearing other advertising at 120k).
I have a question. I have 80k in student loans. I picked the option knowing I will pay 200-300 every month for 30 years. This amount is totally doable given my salary. Why are people so opposed to this type of arrangement this is much better than paying 1-2k every month for a much shorter period.

I one hundred percent believe Juneteenth should be a national holiday, and thankfully my agency is observing it today. Is there anyone else out there feeing just slightly salty about the fact that I still have to use PTO for my religious holidays? And above that, it often falls within a pitch and I just end up working regardless. I know the two aren’t mutually exclusive and I’m also aware it’s not the right time to bring it up with HR. Just battling some bitterness I guess?

Senior copywriter salary at a mid-sized tech firm in SF? I know bonuses, RSU’s and benefits factor in but I’m curious about base salary.
Joined the innovation group for a big bank with lots of smart people. Life is good but lots to learn! Trying to recondition myself from needing the feedback loop on work that I'm so used to getting on project work. While there are project activities, the work is more long term and sustained.
Handed in 2 week notice at start of this week. Project MD pushing me to stay for additional 2 weeks — told me I’d be burning bridge if I leave at the 2 week mark....
