Ladies, where can I find good deals on sexy bras for my gf? Want to surprise her this weekend with a gift.
I've been a lawyer for 12 years. I started up my own law firm immediately out of law school. I've grown that now to a 5 attorney practice. I'm starting to get courted by mid-tier regional firms. Has anyone made this move before? What are the pros and cons? I'm used to doing things my own way. Part of me likes the idea of staying captain of my own ship. Another part wants to use a firm's platform to grow. Advice?
Professional brow maintenance worth it? Always plucked my sparse brows myself. Wonder if I’m missing out.
Do you guys have any suggestions about how I should approach my boss about defending our agency’s work better? (Cont.)
Have to make the 1 vs. 2 fresh embryo transfer decision. Want to understand if anyone here has gone through a complicated twin pregnancy and if it's worth it.
Hi everyone! We are looking at unique ways to recognize people in our firm. Would love to hear what are some best practices, internal portals or external platforms you might be using.
As everyone experienced that OFSS Oracle financial services takes long time to generate offer after selection, is it guaranteed that they give offer letter? I have been selected and verbal offer is given but BGV is yet to start and I do not see offer letter coming soon..
Just want to check if the wait is worth..
X-bowl post. Looking to rent a house in Houston - Richmond, Sugarland area. Not finding a lot of luck on Zillow. Any other effective ways to approach this?
I'm not from Texas, so completely unaware of any local ways to handle this. TIA
Anyone have exciting community service programs / projects they’re working on in Toronto? Would be keen to try something which uses my consulting skills somewhat
Are EY global and EY same company?
I’ve told a couple people this statement and thought it was a good idea for it to be first post in the bowl. If Vialto wants to retain and attract talent then Vialto needs to pay more than Big 4. I am hoping come July everyone recieves a more than average pay bump.
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts. At the end of the episode, an ad comes on for a former client. They were promoting an idea I had almost two years and one agency ago using the idea’s original name. So, I look it up. The words used to describe it are basically the words I wrote to sell it. They even got the talent we proposed in the initial decks to sign on. The big difference is the medium it’s delivered in. So, claim it or let it go? FWIW: It won’t make my book any better.
Ideas for scaling up? I work as a consulting accountant with a full book of business. I can’t work any more hours than I do and my rate is competitive. My clients are whales so I don’t want to price them out, and they don’t like me staffing up. But I’m not satisfied with what I’m earning. Ideas? Thoughts? Note* I’m in my 50’s so a new career is off the table. Feeling like Bob Cratchit over here.
This Thursday, June 20th from 6pm onward! Please RSVP and join the bowl also.
Keep forgetting to carry change for tips
I have friends working in Asia rn. They say work culture is 9am to 12am every weekday, every week, without fail because of the Asian power distance culture. Is this true even at agencies? Or worse?
It doesn't matter where you start. Keep grinding to improve yourself and the rest will come naturally. You'll always find someone to support you.

Hi thanks for calling delta. We’re sorry we had to cancel your flight. The wait time to speak to someone who can help is currently estimated at infinity. Please enjoy this saxophone on a 30 second loop while you wait for the rest of your life with no option for a callback. Wtf is this.

Let’s say I moved to a new state in Jan 2020 to take a new position with my existing company (new job at same company). I get laid off in July 2020 by this company. I was going to leave end of August 2020 anyway due to starting an MBA program, and they knew this. Am I eligible for unemployment for July and August?

Anyone ever leave the firm before the time called out you had to stay to not pay your hiring bonus back? Do they really ask for the money to be paid back?
AlixPartners fishes need some guidance ! I went through the recruiting process for the digital practice earlier this year. Over 9 interviews/ discussion/ tests etc. the feedback was good but was not offered a job due to COVID uncertainties. Recruiter said the firm is interested in hiring me when things pickup.I recently sent a note to the recruiter asking if she has any updates, she said no new updates at this time. Last Friday I saw 3 new opening for the same role, what should I make of this !
Why do people post their internship/new job on LinkedIn like it’s a D1offer? I’m about to graduate and have a job lined up but am super confused. Like who are people signaling to and why, am I supposed to do this?
Just throwing this out there: why don't all the laid off Deloitte peeps start their own firm. Give 'em Deloitte talent at half the price.
How’s your Friday going? In the last 3 hours I’ve found out I’ll be on 3 projects next week and probably book 90+ hours. Oh and I was supposed to be on vacation
