What actually happens during a reference check? Is there some permanent record? Do they call previous firms? Check salary levels?

I wonder this myself. Prior employers supposedly can’t say certain things, but I question the type of information actually shared between HR folks

Contemplating moving from Chicago to the Bay Area. Household TC is ~375k. We have a toddler as well. Both our jobs would allow us to relocate at the same salary. Wanted to get advise on what to expect in terms of change in standard of living (3 bed /2 bath unit), transportation (we don’t own a car) and daycare expenses from people who have done a similar move.

Already dreading work and waiting for the next weekend. Hate this remote project. Always worried about ratings/utilization/etc. probably not a good sign as a new (>6 month) hire.

Simple question. Pre-COVID tax revenues were in the toilet... huge deficit. Either party... what’s the plan? Basic math says you cannot make up the tax break given in this administration. Regardless of the party I’m just curious the thoughts even if you disagree with it. Payroll tax retirement affect social security - that won’t work. Only option is cut spending or raise taxes right? What’s a real plan folks can get behind that will work and is not rhetoric.

PWC folks! Need a bit of help - Is the SM position in PWC Consulting relatively new? I thought Managers become Directors on promotion and the Director level is equivalent to an SM position in other Big 4 (or Director in KPMG).

Conversations or expectation re-sets with clients around the “reality of 2020”? Ie: Pandemic, deaths, quarantine, work from home, remote school learning, layoffs, economy, isolation, politics, police brutality, civil rights protests, forest fires, riots, police state tactics, RBG, plus all the other “normal” bad things. It feels like the elephant in the room.
