Genuinely curious - some colleagues do CFA, learn languages, chill etc. I'm not stellar at either yet hence why I'm learning, so no pat required.

Has anyone dealt with a partner who just tells you to ”do better” or think about how you could “do better” without telling you exactly what areas he’s thinking of or giving you any context? I’ve asked for more specific feedback before but it always seemed arbitrary and vague..

It seems that management doesn’t always understand that employee engagement is tied to many things such as work/life balance, benefits, workload, etc. Any ideas on how to present this type of info to management? We have already done an engagement survey and delivered results but there is lack of action planning which is also not heavily backed up by leadership. Any ideas on how to deliver this message so it makes an impact?

I would recommend a consultation with a career coach. I know someone who lied about having the title ‘Project Manager’ 🤔 needless to@say they never got the job.

Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier. Trying to get out of audit, but not sure it's worth sticking in B4 since not feeling EY at the moment.

Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
