Curious what the latest lockdown in LA means for production. It didn’t specifically call out production but calls out indoor gatherings and non-essential activities.
You can’t be stopped from getting a haircut. But ending mass murder of minorities by police? Obey law!
Hi Fishes! I need advise on a job change. Currently working at lvl 10.2 and and I've got an opportunity in Morningstar where I've been offered a hike of ~33% at the same lvl. I had a discussion with my manager & he said he can only match this hike in March (Fast track basis - lvl 10.1) and will promote me to Lvl 9 by next year
If you worked at Cap1 and were informed that your customer base was defaulting on payments would you be worried about your job? Isn't Cap1 on the hook for the unpaid balance?
I asked my manager this morning that I wanted to change teams. Moving from sales to recruitment. I just started 2 months ago but I realized sales is not for me. My manager suggested that he’ll discuss this internally. However, I noticed they just posted for another role for sales right after my discussion with my manager. Can I be let go from company over this? Especially if the recruiting team decides not to have me on their team.
Anyone know a ballpark of what Kainos or Onesource cost to deploy a Workday Automation solution for Regression Testing?
If you've worked in HR, how many times did you come across a male and female candidate being equal, and the role going to the male candidate? And was this different at lower levels than higher levels?
Are we going bare legs tomorrow NYC? ☀️☀️
Need advice & perspectives: I got a verbal review from my manager saying he couldn’t see me as senior cuz I didn’t follow the design doc format he mandates from all designers. While I have been the only designer who does almost everything from design, UI asset creation, wiring up UI in Unity (I am in mobile gaming).
Also the product I’m on has been in MVP stage, things move extremely fast and design decisions changed constantly. He’s not on my team.
Am I crazy for thinking him a bad manager?
I got placed in Optum . The Cgpa requirement was 7 and my cgpa is 6.6. I have received an offer letter, document verification and all the formalities are done. I have to report to the office. In the offer letter it was written that I need to provide a certificate that I have successfully completed my degree(which I have) on that day. So is there still a chance that my job offer gets revoked.should I contact HR and confirm the same?
Last year the cgpa criteria was 6 if I could negotiate?
Under/over? Greater NYC, Strong b2b product marketer dipping toes into ecom and trying to move from a 1986 sales strategy to, say, solidly 2017. In house Creative lead over a team of 7-10, offering $180k plus 20% annual bonus. Seems low to me but am I just operating with an agency salary scale mindset?

I've always considered my current job temporary, I needed something and all I could get after graduating into the pandemic hiring stalemate was at a small company in my home town doing a job that isn't quite my specialty. My lease is up here in October and I want to leave the area. When is the best time to tell my bosses I'm planning on leaving? I don't want to snub them with too short of notice and I don't want to give them too much notice and make for an awkward work environment. Any advice?

Deloitte folks - question on the "fitness membership/fee while traveling" expense; I know it isn't deducted from our wellness benefit but are we taxed on this or is it 100% covered?
Hello Slalom Consulting friends. A few questions. I have 8 yoe across B4 consulting and SaaS companies. What's a reasonable salary in the Denver office for BAS? Is $165k salary possible? Would I come in as an SC or Principal?
This needs to be said. If your firm is not doing the below, or it’s doing the opposite of the below, your firm is faking interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). Continued in comments.
Can I send my SM to a PowerPoint storyboard training by Deloitte? Please save me from this Analyst-level slide maker...

Who has the best covid (consulting) employer? Obviously there are chunks of the workforce that are being laid off and I feel for them, but beyond keeping your job, has your employer done anything to make the situation better? I am hearing rumors of increased pay (to offset lack of expense budget which is factored into our comp), budgets for home office, going above and beyond to cover unpaid covid testing etc.
Is it fair to expense ubers to get dinner if there are one or two restaurants in walking distance of your hotel but they're not healthy?

I’ve been told I’m gifted at connecting with clients and understanding what’s important to them. I am less gifted at, and care less about, analytics. What’s my path to success in consulting?
Any former lawyers at MBB or similar? How did you transition and what areas of knowledge/expertise are valuable?
Can someone explain why the stimulus checks are based on 2019 tax returns? If an employee lost their job as a result of the pandemic and has earned $0 income ever since, they still might not receive anything. This is fair...how??
