If you transfer to another office location in a lcol will they always adjust your salary or is it case by case basis?
When you are switching firms, what do you care about? What kind of questions do you have? Do you ask about where the company is going and what strategies they are taking? How do you ask about culture? Do you ask about happy hours or team composition? What matters to you other than compensation and WLB? I’m trying to be a more curious person, and not just focused on the money
For those of you who have stayed with the same company which you started, when did you see the most significant salary bump? Why/how did it happen?
Tech consulting (cloud) offers. Which one to choose? Accenture - Cloud Native Application Architect - 180K - 20K signon Insight DI - Architect I - 167K base + 10% bonus - 5K sign on Money & benefit wise acc. looks good but I am concerned about the WLB. Also, I interviewed for Cloud native sr. architect. Recruiter came back with 'great feedback' but is now asking me to apply for application architect. It doesn't make any sense to me. Is that normal? It seems there was a goof up from recruiter
Could anyone please refer a capable career coach? Cost is not as much of a factor but background in the business / tech / health space is a plus
I may have an opportunity to go after a VP/CD-Art role at FCB Chicago on Cotonelle & Kleenex. Thoughts? Salary range? Watch outs? Love it? Etc.? Thanks. A little more into: I’m coming from a mid-size regional shop where I get to touch a lot of work, but fight daily to produce quality.
I’m pregnant!? And I’m getting a job offer tomorrow. I need to know a million things like their insurance packages (I really want to keep my Kaiser insurance) and whether they offer paid leave before the one year FMLA mark. What else do I need to know? How do I ask all this stuff? How concerned should I be about disclosing my pregnancy considering I just tested positive, and I barely know these people?
I’d be curious for peoples thoughts on permanent life insurance. We’re early 30s, 2 kids. We can very likely comfortably afford the big up front investment for the next 15 years or so. It feels like putting the money to work in equities is a better play but don’t want to write this off if it’s worth it. Right now I’d say our net worth is around 1.5 with 55% equities. 30% home equity, 10% preferreds, 5% cash.
Compensation for a Series C Biz ops lead and Series C S&O lead with 5 YOE? Looking at some roles but hoping to wrap head around TC first. TIA!
Kaiser health plan — do any traveling consultants have this? Recently moved to Oregon and it’s the most attractive on paper but is it totally pointless if you travel?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
I don’t suppose anyone has any opinions of health agencies in London? Quick scan through this bowl suggest not, but the health bowl is basically all NY.
Any title insurance underwriting counsel here? Full service real estate attorney looking to focus my practice. I’ve applied to most of the major title insurers these last few weeks and I’m feeling hopeful. I’ve never underwritten title but I’ve searched title, written abstracts, written certified title opinions, advised clients in house, litigated quiet title actions, property line disputes and defended oil and gas trespass cases. I know title in and out. I’m ready.

Insights into PwC HC P&O practice ( Health Care Industry)? Currently at Deloitte, contemplating a switch - any insights appreciated!
For PwC fishes who left recently, how did you consolidate wealth builder into 401k within benefits express to avoid the 20% federal tax withholding that was described in the benefits package? I tried to do this online but it didn’t show as an option except to rollover to an existing IRA or take a final distribution. Do I need to call benefits express?
Deloitte summer scholars who were given BTA offers: numbers were 80 base 14.5 signing. There better be one hell of a bump coming my way when I get my M comp statement in 2 weeks
I am 24 years old and the advice I have been given is to max out my IRA and 401k before investing into a taxable brokerage account. If I do not plan on working until I am 59 1/2, is this sound advice since there is a 10% penalty of early withdrawals for both accounts?
Anyone work at the marketing arm? Saw an open role on the State Farm team and would love to pick your brain.
There’s a sense of entitlement in the biz that wasn’t present years ago. There are many signs but the one that hit home most is when I heard some employees gripe that the company wouldn’t pay dog insurance.
I see a lot of LinkedIn posts about how we are all shopping offers and how this should be stopped. What do you all say? I feel like in case they feel it's a "crime", HRs should not proceed if we say I have a standing offer in the beginning itself. Only firms can poach people who join for lesser salary (even though market standards say otherwise) but we can't seek for better offers?
Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?
Any one leave for Wayfair? How’s the work life balance? Challenging projects? Tips for interviewing?
Big 4. Last year was a promotion year for me, and I killed it. Got the promo, the highest performance rating, a 15% raise, and a 20% bonus.
How hard is it to pivot once you’re in industry? Interviewing for a New York Times strategy role but my end goal is to get into the streaming space (Netflix, HBO, Disney, etc)
I feel absolutely broken by this job. But, I cant leave because I'm only an SC and I don't have an MBA. And despite 10 years of experience, 6 of which are Big4, I seem to only be qualified to be a VP.
Watching Screens(Laptop, Phone, TV) all day is giving me headaches. Pre-COVID, interaction with people will take some time off screen. What are some ways you guys are coping to give some rest to eyes?

Hi Desi Fam, I noticed a difference between the general consulting bowl vs desi bowl where almost everyone in the desi community is for the covid vaccination. What are some key reasons for the difference from the general US population where a large % are anti-vaxers. Thoughtful answers only (and not answers like we are smarter).
Allowing people to keep the per diem if they don't use all of it is a great motivator to eat less 🤔
