Bain interview tomorrow, any last minute tips?
What is a average yearly raise? My company claims they only do a 1-5% raise per year. I won’t even be able to catch up with this year’s inflation. Is it crazy to ask for a 20% increase?

Hiring managers: if you met a candidate that you felt was the perfect fit, would you cut steps in your interview process to hire them? Or would you still go through all the normal steps knowing that you want to make an offer anyway?
Basically, I’ve moved to industry and I’m lucky in that I have full control over my hiring process. I’ve met someone that’s a perfect fit so am considering moving straight to offer, but am concerned I might miss something by doing so.
I had given the interview in TCS on Thursday. Yesterday I got a call to upload all the documents. May I know how much time they will take to evaluate my candidature.
So I've been offered a "promotion" a transfer with in the company from a lower performing store in KY to a flagship store in PA. Obviously a stipend and significant raise would be a part of this. I have so many reasons to say no and they all seem logical to me but I guess I need reassurance that I'm not making a bad decision if I decline.
I should add I've also been job hunting the past few months and considering leaving the company.

Our agency (WPP PR shop) used to have a really competitive PTO offering. For this year, HR has changed time off to be split into true paid time off and “wellness days”. I’ve seen this when interviewing elsewhere as well, does anyone know why companies do this? It’s meant a decrease in the more flexible true PTO bucket for employees.

A few weeks ago I had an informal call with an AWS intel recruiter reviewing my resume and discussing potential job opportunities. I didn’t hear back for a few days and reached out via email with no response for a while now. I am currently talking to Accenture about roles after interviewing with them. Should I give up on AWS completely or try reaching out again? (For reference I have a TS clearance with basic SQL and cloud based solutions experience, nearing 2 YOE)
I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.
I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

I am a Chartered accountant and truth be told given the current times CA is a really low incentive education any potent person can get. Today I see engineers barely with a few years of experience earning lakhs per month. Whereas me despite being in the right place at the right time is working hard 10-11 hours each day even today. We as a forebearers of this profession must really rise together

Help! Wife wants an Apple Watch that has the find my iPhone feature built into it and that she can use to get texts and calls without having to have her phone on her. Never had one before so no idea which to get. We’re pretty frugal on most things so she’d be very bothered if it was the new one. Would a series 3 be a good buy? I see them at Walmart for $169? Would this work? Or SE?

Weird scenario here.. I need access to a specific environment and my manager told me to reach out to X person. I reached out to him on Tuesday via Teams and followed-up yesterday on the same thread. I can see he read the message but never replied. Am I being too aggressive if I send him email and cc my manager on it?
Not a work-based post! I’m relatively young (early 30s) and have become immune to dysport. My injector said it’s incredibly rare and he’s shocked. I never got it that often, maybe every 3-5 months over the last 3 years. I’m so sad! Has anyone experienced this with dysport or botox?

I’ll preface this by recognizing that it’s a very privileged concern to have, but is it wrong to hide my family’s wealth from my friends? Grew up middle class but through a recent job at a startup my dad is now a multimillionaire. My lifestyle hasnt changed at all — I don’t get any money/big gifts from my family, I pay all my own bills, and my fam is still extremely frugal. But obviously, I have HUGE privilege — I feel deceitful going along w friends’ convos about aspiring to be wealthy one day

This is a bit of an odd one but does anyone in this bowl have Lipoedema? Not lymphedema, Lipoedema. If so, what sort of doctor was able to give you a formal diagnosis. I suspect I have it but there’s conflicting information online about what sort of doctor to see (vascular surgeon, endocrinologist, even a dermatologist or plastic surgeon?)

Not a consulting post - I am 29 and been with my boyfriend for 7 years. I have been on birth control for all of them (currently using the implant in arm). We are very happy and not ready for children. I have had really low sex drive in the last year or so and really contemplating going off birth control. Nervous about using condoms regularly for the first time in my relationship (what if we are tempted and don’t have one, what if it breaks, etc.) anyone have experience or opinions? 😢

I'd be surprised if an interview and test determined your readiness for promotion. Typically it is on the job performance, specifically demonstrating sustained performance at the next level
I would ask questions in a forward looking way, asking what you need to demonstrate to merit promotion the next time.
Also, it's really normal to train people at the next level who are new, this is part of the job and you shouldn't resent it.
In this case, the interview and test were the requirements of this promotion in particular. I work in government. It isn’t a new position but rather a re-classification to better reflect the nature of the work. I have a perfect performance review. I’m asking in the context of the fact that this is a personal issue of the manager toward me and how to prepare in that respect. Secondly I am being asked to train people who have been hired at the new level/category/pay. My point is that it seems absurd that I should be deemed qualified to train them for a position for which I apparently have not been deemed qualified, my job that I have been doing for two years. In any case I am preparing to move to a new team with a better position and pay but I am taking this opportunity to advocate for myself and hold people accountable.
