First year level 9 (consultant) expecting to hear about pay raise this Wednesday (will be minimal) I am leaving the firm and new offer wants me to start on 11/26, should I ask to start 12/4 so I can..
Under what circumstances are you willing to relocate for a job? Have family, kids and pets. Got an offer from a well-known company in industry, but requires relocation. The company pays the relocation. Got 20% raise, similar COL in the new city , but the work itself is not that exciting. The attractive part of this offer is the benefit and the name of the company.
Still trying to recover from my crt convo a week ago -- feeling beyond dejected... I got a 4.. I feel like that's a gentle nudge to go -- this is a promotion year for me and seems like there is no way
So I made a job update (promotion) on my LinkedIn profile and made sure to also enable 'Share with Network' but why isn't my network being informed of the good news through notifications. Is there some sort of delay or bug going on with LinkedIn? HELP
I have been poached by my manager about a promotion and am working on a review to share with him. I have continued to express my interest in working on an upcoming brand strategy work, my manager agreed verbally. I just found out that he actually gave the work to a new AE of my team. When I approached him, he didn't give much explanation but that my time will come. How should I navigate this?
Is it normal for a Partner to tell me “you know this will delay your promotion by 6 months” a day before my STD for mental health reasons? (P.S. He assumed I took the leave for mental health reasons although I never mentioned that to him). He also said “people like you leave and never come back so make sure you talk to your sponsors before making any decision, there are people who are excited to work with you”.. the conversation is on replay in my head
Buy gold, buy silver. Physical is best, tradeable assets that let you redeem for tangible are second best: $PSLV and $PHYS are best Gold hit $2K+ an ounce today - for those who are 'TLDR', that ain't good. The FED is going to raise rates soon to combat stagflation but it will not solve the entire puzzle. Precious metals, metal miners, standalone property in healthy markets, and for those who can handle risk, cryptocurrency, are your safe havens. The clues are there; we're toast; good luck.

Has anyone ever taken a short term leave of absence to deal with mental health issues relating to being overloaded and overwhelmed with work?

My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?

I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?

There’s a position I want to apply to at a different company, and it seems like it would fit me perfectly. I went on LinkedIn and saw that there’s one person from my undergrad school that works there with a similar title for the job I want. How do I reach out to him and how much is too much? Do I ask for advice on getting the job/how the job is/ a referral? Should I even reach out?
How to feel more comfortable in my role? I’m transferred to FDD as an S1 as a tax associate (external) about 4 months ago, and I still feel kind of unsure in what I’m doing.

Any thoughts/advice is appreciated!
