This happened to my buddy and not me but it’s been bothering me: Our manager promised him a promotion and a salary bump back in March and claimed it would hit “early May” and obviously my friend was excited. but they just had a meeting yesterday where my manager claimed that he no longer feels my buddy is ready and is taking away the pay and promotion. When my buddy asked further questions my manager admitted that actually our holding company said no. Is my manager acting in an ethical manner?
Everytime I ask my boss for a raise he tells me there is a freeze. How should I handle the situation?
Currently approaching manager promotion. And now everything is subject to Automated broker feed. Anybody with ally invest (formerly TradeKing) have issues adding it? I had troubles last year with it
No new from RP yet about promotion but Got an email from Independence Checkpoint about a new portfolio due within 5 days. Does that mean I made manager?
Is it normal to not know many technical skills as a senior 1? I’m approaching senior promotion and I have all of the processes down and can explain how to do everything in the workpapers/software, but most of the time I don’t have much of a clue about the logic behind it
How is the work culture at Unqork? Currently interviewing there for 15% pay raise. Most of it in RSUs though. Wondering if its worth the switch 🤔
1.5 years in T2 consulting and 6 mo from my first promotion. Got a pretty great offer at the industry and company I’d like to end up in down the road at analyst level. Worth waiting for promo?
What’s the process like for early promotion from Senior 2 to Manager 1? The partner I work for thinks I have a business case on one job
How many months after promotion to senior should you stay before exiting or transferring to another practice?
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
People keep asking if I'm up for promotion and I've only been here a year (so I am not). Flattered I guess?
Got raise but no promotion even though I was an acting senior. All of my reviews say "exceeds expectations". What should be my next step?

My team mate has a very noisy way of biting his nails - imagine a smacking sound. Happens all day long in the team room. How do I tactfully raise this?
If you put in your two weeks notice before promotion bonuses are paid, but promotion bonus payout day occurs during those two weeks, do you still get your promotion bonus?
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.
Are good looking people usually getting faster promotion, tending to do more management and non tech work?
Am I the only one who would quit their job just to be able to raise a dog? (Presuming that there's an equivalent industry job)

Anyone here from Chartis Group? About to begin interview process and would love to connect. Thanks!
pwc foreign Global Mobility offices (IAS) have apparently been asked to confirm if they will remain with pwc or be part of a sale of the GLOBAL MOBILITY practice (presumably the US one). Seems odd, to say the least. I feel for my fellow IAS colleagues (I’m sure the partners past and present may get a sweet bonus / retention payment … others 🤔??).
I’m in a part time mba program. One of our mandatory classes is solving a real client issue and presenting it to the client... is this in conflict with the firm and should I report it?

Thinking that anytime I'm in the SkyClub it is wine o'clock, even if I wouldn't be drinking at 3pm in the office (or home office).
I have a group case study interview coming up. Anyone know what I can expect or how it will be structured? I’ve done group interviews in the past but can’t see how they would be able to conduct it the same way virtually.
What’s the average salary of a Federal Accenture analyst? Is it much different than other Analysts?
I’m 29, at my first serious job, and am getting fired (not laid off). Feel like an idiot, and don’t know anyone else my age who has been fired. If you’ve been fired, can you tell me about it? I’m LA based in PR & Comms.
I heard a rumor that some partners at MBB firms (and maybe other consulting firms, too?) can hold a plane. Is there any truth to this? I know our partners’ connections are strong, but that is one crazy ask….
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
My base salary progression with 3-4 YoE: 60K (Company 1), 71K (Company 2), and currently 83K (Company 2, Promo). My consulting focus is currently in healthcare. Having salary negotiations next week with a midsize tier 3 firm within their strategy consulting practice. What’s the bare minimum I should aim for as base salary? Glassdoor shows a wide range from 95k-125k. My target is 110k-120k. Is this a stretch?
