A question I have wondered about for a few years now : why are workplaces not already designed to support working moms - like the ability to work part time, working fewer days a week, etc. It is not unknown to anyone the amount of effort and time it takes for moms of young kids to raise them and give the support and attention they need to grow up to be successful individuals. And this has been from time immemorial, nothing new. Then how is it that the only options we have when we want (contd)
Career advice question. Currently AP / Principal in MBB. Have always performed strongly until a recent case crash with significant ramifications, meaning Partner promotion is probably delayed by 12-18 months. Not keen to wait so exploring options, e.g. with T-2 firms (EYP, S&). What would be the best way to navigate the obvious question “why are you leaving MBB for us?” Thanks team!

I am happy at my agency and like my boss, which is my top priority, but I keep getting reached out to for new jobs.

Have an offer from Deloitte doing the exact same thing I do at KPMG for 45% more. Partners at KPMG have basically told me they can get close to matching but not until raises happen in October. Should I trust them or jump? Worried about having to build an internal network from scratch at Deloitte but also worried about getting screwed in October and getting like a 10% raise only. M2 if it matters. Thoughts?
One of our star coders was recently rejected from a promotion because they lacked the number of years of experience required. They've cut back their number of overtime hours dramatically and have started blogging about their skills, probably to attract recruiters. How do I convince them to keep their previous performance?
Ever been told you have to quit being an EA to make more money?

Recruiters are poaching me for 150k EA roles and was denied a raise because I’d be making too much more than my peers. 98k, no bonus, CA, Finance, 1 exec., full benefits, 6% 401k match,100% remote, hourly + OT , 20 time off days, 12 holidays

Need advice. I’m in industry now and report to Controller who reports to CFO. I found out my raise is 2.75% and brought it up to my boss and he said “that’s what everyone is getting as raises are based on market, not inflation, and your salary is within market range”. I have a skip level meeting with the CFO tomorrow and want to mention it’s the smallest raise I’ve ever gotten or some other comment to bring it to his attention. How do I phrase that in a professional manner?
