To all you lovely 🏳️🌈 fish, wishing you a happy, healthy and restful holiday season filled with love❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Landed a new job!! Couldn’t be more excited! I have two questions though— 1) how would you go about quitting your current job when in the middle of a two week holiday break? 2) I would like to negotiate for $5k-$10k more. Any tips from anyone who has done so successfully
MD's assistant won't shut up about buying a villa in Tuscany. Bitch, I know how much you make. A weekend at The Holiday Inn would be stretching it. #backdowntoearthplease
I haven’t taken any vacation (other than one day here and there) all year. I’m taking two weeks off at the end of November and just told a partner and he was shocked (presumably at the length). Is this a faux pas?
Anyone in DT think that the utilization reports with everyone's name they send to all seniors and above is just a obnoxious shaming tactic ?
ACN: Can charge to central training instead of pto if I'm going to take classroom training and certification?
Holiday Gifts 2019 Reflecting on this year's holidays. What was one great/significant gift you recieved or gave to a colleague or another Professional that you wanted to show much appreciation to?
That feeling when a well meaning manager keeps ending meetings with “have a happy holiday, and enjoy some time off with your family,” and he is unaware that some of us (a) already celebrated Hanukkah (and don’t really celebrate anyway), (b) are alone and unhappy, (c) kind of have no reason to burn PTO for a non holiday when you’re alone, bored, and have nothing going on in yet another month of a terrible year. It’s like one more set of fingers on a chalk board listening to such pleasantries.
How can utilization encourage efficiency? I have a 30hr code and I finished the work in 5hr. If I charge 5, the write up gives credit to the partner and my utilization suffers.
Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?
My utilization has been so low since COVID closed off the offices. Should I be worried? Should I reach out to my relationship/career coach? Change to another group/line of service??
I feel so stuck in my life (28F). I just want to find my person and start building a life together. I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. I just want to create holiday memories with my new family and instead, I’m looking at another season with my dysfunctional as hell family. I know a negative attitude and comparing myself to others isn’t helping me, but I can’t seem to lift myself out of my funk…
Getting ready to come back to work after a week of vacation. Definitely feeling imposter syndrome and that I’m not smart enough to come back to Int’l tax. Anyone else ever feel this way about their jobs?
What do you do when you legitimately have run out of PTO because you’re sick a lot? I take prescribed medication that weakens my immune system but don’t want to explain that if I can avoid it.
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
Just realized, I didn’t max out my 401k this year. Any way I can still contribute and count towards 2018 cap?
Given all the recent buzz about expected large raises around the big 4, I’d like to level set on the average salary for a 4th/5th year female senior manager in federal tax ( credits & methods group) in the Midwest - Chicago/Minneapolis/Detroit market. Anyone willing to share a range if they work in a similar area of tax / similar level? I recognize all groups vary greatly in salary expectations, so looking for input specific to my area. Current expectations set at 140-160k. Reasonable?
I wanted to know in reality how much does a partner lets say advisory makes on an average other than fixed salary?
What is happening over at BCG and McKinsey? Every other post is about people interviewing there! Sounds like a huge ramp up.
What is the best certification to pursue in this area? Looking at SHRM-CP but want to learn more about others.
What skills to study / learn that are relevant to M&A or Strategy consulting? Have been studying a lot of valuation, econ, strat, finance, M&A. Books / courses / topics you recommend?
Software Sales question: I just got a job offer to join a post-Series A with under 20 employees. On the equity piece, I was offered .1% equity at a $142m valuation. This is a Senior / Director Sales role where I'll be blending IC duties + managing a team as we grow. I felt this offer was a bit low from the equity side. Anyone know how to evaluate this?
Looking for best suggestions for transferring corporate AMEX points or getting the best value?
If I know i want to stay and be in/near Tech, is it wise to chase M7 only? Like the top tech MBAs include schools outside M7 - CMU, Georgia tech, etc
Please, don’t call us visa holders ‘resident aliens’ anymore. Call us ‘extra-terrestrial residents’, thank you.
Is anyone working in industry for any Healthcare companies? I am getting interest from various Healthcare companies for a senior audit position bc I have a client background in them. Better than PA?
Why does Deloitte offer 3 HDHP's if their coverage is identical? I compared the UHC, Aetna, and Anthem HDHP plans and didn't see any differences. Am I missing something?
Will getting 2 years of experience as a strategy & ops manager in financial services pigeon hole me in that industry. Not in love with the space but think it could compliment 2 years at MBB quite well. Not too eager to stay in consulting and get promoted
Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?
