About to make move to independent (but growing/stable) shop. Any 🐠 been able to get equity as part of comp package? If yes, did you have to take a hit on base and/or bonus?
What is right mortgage rate strategy for first time homebuyer - 2.6% with 1.5k lender credit or 2.5 with 1.8k points fee fee. I am leaning towards 2.5 with assumption that I will be able to refinance in future with 2.4 when rates go down further. What would be your choice
We are having difficulty with managing employee absences. Most seem as if they don’t care about termination. What have others done to motivate hourly employees to come to work? We have changed schedules, offered perfect attendance bonuses, replaced the points system, etc.
How adamant is ACN with taking back bonus $ if you leave the firm? I got $10k relocation bonus 10 months ago, have to pay it back if I leave before 12. 😭
My niece is getting in on the points game. Aside from TPG where should I send her to self educate? Any card recommendations? Her hubby is military so they won’t have to pay fees on most cards. Thanks!
Flying to St. Lucia in November, fiancé on points and myself on a paid ticket. Will AA still combine two different reservations with identical itineraries?
I think biggest takeaway of debate thus far is that we'd be better off with these vp running as president... So much cooler headed, more intelligent points, and much less interrupting than last week!
Suggest stock tickers to look into here, bonus points if you share a blurb or two of DD you've done on it :)
For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:
Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
Prob been asked but how do you best use Bonvoy points. Debating 60k/night in Iceland or saving up for 85k/night Ritz in Caymans (or something like that). Generally what level to spend the points?
Help a socially awkward fella out. Got a large bonus from a consulting project team with personal note ccing the other key member. I didnt know how to respond but did say thank you to the director in person. Should i still reply to that email?
Anyone had success negotiating extra points to have the team stay at a hotel for a long term client engagement (e.g., double points for the team)? Trying to negotiate with a Hyatt right now and would love any tips.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Hi Tcs fishes, Need one info from you guys . After joining TCS in C3A grade as Assistant Consultant . Can I give digital certificate examination and will my salary increase if I crack the exam
Any ex-EY folks here who did withdraw the pension money? If yes what age were you and how much did they offer?
How do you travel with your face serums & oils?
Anyone else guilty of poisoning new hires viewpoints?? Some of em just asked me so many questions and I wanna be honest with them. Like sorry Timmy pls don’t ask me “what happens when ‘politics’ come up in the work place” on a call of 30 other new hires next time so I don’t have to say that “we basically let our bosses say that we don’t talk about politics then he proceeds to talk about politics and then we talk about politics”. (The hiring committee person literally cut me off after this 🤣)
Livid & need to vent. Had a call with a client, I am the attorney that manages their cases. A male attorney was on the call with me as well. I try to explain something to client multiple times and he keeps cutting me off to explain his question again (even though I am answering the question but for the interruptions). Male attorney jumps in and explains exactly same of what I am saying, male client listens intently, no interruptions, then essentially ignores me the rest of the call. Raaaaage 🤬
Book recs? I love reading self-help books but sometimes they bore me. Any good fiction series out there that can get me reading more often?
Interviewed with HR and then the hiring manager almost four weeks ago but then found a gig at a different branch of the company (same title and duties) that I LOVE. I emailed the HR rep to check in and got no response and can see via LinkedIn that he’s left the company. Do I reach out to the hiring manager or just wait and see, focusing on the second position I’d prefer?
Keep getting visa issues (canadian looking in big tech in the US) and had offer rescinded after employer realizing I need H1B. Any advice?
When you realize your 2nd kid is about to be born but you can’t stop worrying about how you’ll be able to afford full time day care for 2 kids when you and your spouse go back to work.
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Actually spent all of my per diem today and am feeling shitty about it. Normally, I have enough left to essentially eat free over the weekend!
What are the main differential factors between consulting and industry jobs (excluding salary)
Regular tips and strategies to keep meeting facilitation fresh? I host a lot of meetings every week with my teams and I’d love a way to keep up on new ways to engage people (mostly over zoom). Any great orgs or circles that share this kind of content?
Why do companies that clearly desperately need people think that assigning a take home case study that takes 10 hours will help their cause.... I will drop out in a heartbeat lol

Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.
