Oh freakin duh 😞 ugh. Thank you EY1

Depends on the business. In tech it’s usually not

100% agree A&E. It’s basically an asset for tech because it’s futures revenue that will be recognized.

Would anyone consider hiring an award winning CD to work remote for a year? I’m relocating to a different time zone to help my parents.


Just curious, what percentage of your billable rate do you take home? Calculation would be ((Salary and Bonus/Yearly Billable Hours)/Billable Rate). For me it's about 18% as a Senior 1 in M&A Tax (note this doesn't include other benefits).


Do holiday weekends like Labor Day make job posters / recruiters want to close on a job posting and make a decision beforehand or does that usually have no weight in decision timelines?


Has anyone heard of or have had any engagements with Financial Technologies Inc, a financial solution fintech? Curious about the company culture, growth and possible career transition.


Recently interviewed with an external firm, cleared all rounds and a presentation. External HR emails me today asking “do you have few minutes to connect tomorrow” What would be the possible outcome? How does that sound, please share your thoughts 🙏🏽


MAGA friends, why does every conversation with you about COVID and the US Covid response include a claim that it’s China’s fault? Let’s say I grant your premise. How does COVID being China’s fault make the Trump response seemingly better? There are a number of things the president has to respond to that he did not directly cause - are you suggesting we don’t want someone capable of responding to events they did not have a hand in crafting?


What's the internal job transfer protocol for PwC? Do I really have to contact my RL first before applying anywhere? I'd like to stay in the same office and don't really care about getting a higher salary. Just want to stay at PwC in a tax related role (which is what I'm in now, just more niche).

Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run


Burnt out. Every holiday it gets harder to re-motivate myself to get back to form. Any others feel similarly?


Hey teachers! Have any of you ever used the program Transmath? It is a math program for secondary students. I am a high school inclusion special education teacher, and this year I am teaching a math class for some of my students using this program. I would love to hear if any of you have used it before and what it looks like in your classroom! Thank you!


What would you do? You interview with a team at an agency. That team says No, not enough experience for us. Then abut later another team calls you in and boom you get hired, everything is great...


How to transfer all my MileagePlus points to SPG or Amex?


Classic IAH to ORD delays, able to make a prior flight due to it being delayed. Middle row back, but at least I save myself 3 hours of loitering. Little wins


Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.


[Request] if anyones feeling generous and has expiring United Club passes, one of my good friends is going on her honeymoon Monday. I’ve already upgraded them to first class (domestic) but would like to get them lounge access before too. I’ve got one pass but would need another one for her partner. Anyone have an extra they could spare?


Hey 🐠 I have recently realized that my verbal communication is not the greatest. It’s not bad. I just don’t sound like my boss(she is great). Any advice on courses/books/podcasts/prep/anything?


The waiting after you interview is the absolute worst. It's hard to judge how well you did. I doubt they make calls past 5pm on a Friday, right?


How inclusive is your district? Do you believe in full inclusion, self-contained, or somewhere in he middle?
