Just met someone while I'm in a travel city and we clicked, but this is my last week of project travel and we've only been out on 1 awesome date 😟
Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
Was on a traveling project when it clicked that I may be depressed. after telling my senior, his response to my ask of using my lunch for a short walk outside (& taking a working lunch) "we're here to
How’s your agency’s creative to everyone else ratio? Like, Is your dept the largest? Or do you have more project managers than art directors? Like we do🙄
Experienced hire/Senior Analyst leaving Accenture after a year. Moving to a position with a client for 2x salary and 20% more bonus. No MBA, no PMP just your typical veteran who is seasoned in GSD. Just wanted to share for the veteran dudes and dudettes. There are others out there who recognize what you are capable of. Don’t settle for what the LinkedIn talking heads tell you or recruiters who only recruited when they were in service.

My 23rd fall tax season and I still can’t get myself into the next project/deadline until 9/15 is fully buttoned up….Today I’m part sloth, while still attacking the problems that arise.
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.
What is your thought on disconnecting from work when on vacation? I see majority of colleagues take work computers on vacations and even logging on to answer emails for client. Im guilty of this!

Is it wrong to be happy that a deal fell through? I know it sucks for the client and other parties involved but my schedule just opened up.
I had milestone in 2020 & 2021 C to SC. Both yrs good ratings, 6/6 ONL flags, Coach's F/b in iRPM - 'xyz is working on next level since last 2 yrs'. Strong support frm Project, 2 Awards. Still NO PROMOTION Talent f/b to coach - 'Scatterplot cut off didn't meet, can do better next yr' MD called today - 'You are doing good work, want to reward you 1.5L bonus with 12 month retention policy' I said - 'I am 100% sure I would be returning it if I accept, hence I decline this' Wats his next step?
How do you get past the “guilt” of leaving a company full of people who you like and respect? Currently on a project where I really cannot be replaced this last minute & have the project end successfully. My managers have also repeatedly checked in on me and made it very clear that they want to keep me / are doing everything they can to help me grow at the company. Still, I am not passionate about the work at ALL and want to leave. Just can’t make myself start looking because I feel so guilty.
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Do you think if they raise the federal minimum wage, that the big 4 will be forced to pay the entry level staff/associate more?
Are EY Promotion Bonuses locked in on October 1st? Or October 15th? I’m wondering if a newly promoted Senior leaves the firm between October 2nd - 14th will they forfeit the Senior Promotion Bonus...
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?

Would it be burning bridges if I were honest when putting in my two weeks/exit interview. I just want to say the reason I’m leaving is that I don’t think advertising is for me and I don’t enjoy it...
Studying for midterms (mba) and, per usual, bunch of deliverables due this week. Long hours for both work and studying are making this week drag. Anyone else struggling?
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

My friend appeared for Goldman’s Hirevue. After submitting the status of his application changed to “interview “ but haven’t heard back from them yet. It’s been a week. When can he expect a reply? Thanks! Goldman Sachs
Current M&A tax associate, just got off the phone with a recruiter for a senior M&A position at a private company. Involves a massive raise but with the caveat I won’t be under a CPA to get the experience to be licensed. Should this be a deal breaker? I don’t think I want to stay in accounting/tax long term but it feels somewhat wrong to have spent all that time on the exams just to not get licensed. Thoughts?
New To the Big 4 and having trouble articulating my individual goals on Workday. All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
Any tips on how to make a less traditional background (stand-up comedy, screenwriting MFA, TV development) stand out as a positive when applying to JR. CW jobs & CW internships?
