What are your thoughts on this article? I was confused by how an earnest request of how to deal with money matters turned into a "you are sexist and part of the problem" epithet. Interested to hear if others agree or disagree with the approach taken in this article and what I might be missing. https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/my-girlfriend-makes-twice-what-i-earn-i-reluctantly-paid-the-200-dinner-check-for-her-first-promotion-she-just-got-another-one-should-i-pay-again-11627260385
Hello! I just got a raise and I’m officially making six figures under 25 (a personal goal I always wanted to reach) I’ve also worked my ass off to save this year so I’d like to treat myself to a piece that will remind me of this career milestone. What handbag, piece of jewelry, or other “hallmark” are you glad you splurged on early in your career? I’m not a huge designer handbag gal, but I want something tangible to remind me of my hard work getting here. Thanks!
What are the ultimate consulting exit apps (I.e? specific role/team & industry) for the non-technical consultants? Looking to understand the exit opps available that: 1. Pay in line with MBB or exceeds (YOY raise is also in line with career and pay progression at MBB) 2. Have reasonable hours, at most 9-7 so I can pick up some hobbies and have a personal life 3. Have great global brand/prestige that will make me as desirable exiting consulting now vs exiting that company in the future
Hello Friends, What is the annual average hike at Deloitte USI for senior consultant in SAP and what will be the hike during promotion to Manager.
How about Lyft removing the $5 off after 5 business rides promotion? Back to Uber I go... ...whenever we get to traveling again 😬
I’ve been working hard this year, but I’m concerned I won’t get a promotion at the end of the year due to covid (we’ve had severe pay cuts/furloughs at our company). Any advice?
Hi all, would love to get your opinion on an estimated market rate for a employee like me, as I’m thinking about asking for a raise in January but haven’t done this before. 1 YOE TS/SCI Full-Scope Clearance 1/2 thru Masters program (Analytics Georgia Tech) Been lead data scientist on team for 5+ months 2 AWS and Tableau cert (sorry had to throw that in there lol) I know this is a tough task without all the context but I’m currently making $95k and that seems to be the lowest on my team.
Random thought... My gay male context plus the pandemic has amplified the "this isn't worth it" view of my unbalanced work life balance. I am never going to have kids and don't need to keep grinding for the next promotion etc. like my head of household peers with children. Do you feel the non-traditional household / income demands that LGBTQIA+ we live with are making you more easily say "enough is enough" with work as the valuation of our time has increased during the pandemic? 🤔
I'm falling apart mentally due to stress causing issues on my mental health, but I'm trying to stay strong because I desperately need a promotion.
Ask for career advice - my MSA friend started in industry as staff tax accountant four years ago and never really got promoted but got 10% raise after all these years. (to be continued)
If I accept the promotion to Partner/Principal what's the least number of years I could work without it being a financial mistake. I have an opportunity to do something completely unrelated that's my passion, but I feel like that's the wrong decision when I'm this close. The other opportunity should still be there for 2-3 years
My PA CPA license is currently in process. I need to get licensed in IL as that’s my home state now but couldn’t apply directly due to not meeting IL education requirements. Should I atleast get my IL application started and submitted and submit the PA license to them whenever I get it? I know it takes like 2 months for them to even get to your application. I’m working up against a promotion so time is essential
For folks whose own and SO’s family live far away….how do you manage childcare? I understand nannies for the day but as I think of multi day outings, would prefer a family member to care for my child. What have others in this long distance situation done? They say it takes a village to raise a child but both our “villages” in terms of family are far away

Hello Fishes, Is anyone aware about what would be the average hike percentage this year for the falks getting promotion from associate to senior associate? YOE is 9 and currently having 6.5L fixed. Talking about EY GDS not EY India.
On a fast track for promotion, and also have a good standing/reputation already within my MM bank so far. I also have a complicated visa situation that my bank is handling. Not closed off but not really set on PE or anything. Is it still worth starting fresh and likely a delayed promo at an EB?
Is it weird to list a promotion on linkedin even though I just put my two weeks in at the same time? So I won’t actually be working as the promoted role but I still achieved it?

Need a birthday gift idea for my dad turning almost 70 this weekend! He had always been a cheerful, sociable, health-conscious person until he had an unfortunate heart condition last year and is practically disabled now. Need a live-in nurse to help him walk, shower, etc. His mind, cognitive is still great. He’s very low-key, down to earth, and always say no need to get him gifts. I want this birthday to be very special for him and make him feel optimistic about life. Appreciate any views -x
