What's the best way to negotiate PTO on an offer? Got a very fair salary up front don't really see the need to push the boundary there because from reports online they are offering higher than market average. But the PTO accrual rate is incredibly low. 10 days a year for the first year + 9 holidays (coming from a job with 20 + all holidays). I'd like to see if I can ask for 15 to start and have the normal accruals bumps after that.

Inspired by the q of what firms are doing right, what are firms doing right for first year associates? Midsized firm, fall 2020 start class delayed to Jan 2021 but some started Nov 2020 to help the business group. Covid meant no "welcome to the firm" happy hour, but I think some got a wine gift box and some got nothing. New fall class just started so I hear the fall 2020/Jan 2021 class is feeling salty/forgotten. What have firms done for first years/ideas to make covid class feel welcome?
Hey Desi fam. So I was going to apply for visa for my son (US Citizen) and what the notice on the site says is that eVisa or Regular visa will be allowed from Nov 15th but it would only have a limit of 30 days !? What if we have to stay back for more than 30 days for whatever reason? Is this the case with emergency visas as well and Does anyone have experience with extending either in the past?

Hi FB family - seeking some help for my soon to be graduating son. He has an interview with capital one. He’s cleared other stages thus far. This last one he’s pretty intimidated by because it includes some type of case interview where the Capital One team will share a pseudo code type case. Anyone know what the format of that interview is? What type of case to expect? Appreciate any guidance on how to prep. Thanks in advance.
What comp can we expect to target after 2 YOE? I’m not miserable in consulting but don’t think I get paid enough. With my promotion in a month, I’ll be hitting 100k and I want to only leave if I can get 110k or more (going for strategy, PM, and a few startup roles). Is that realistic? whens the best time to leave for max comp in the long term?

Directors - I'm interviewing for a director role next week and re-reading the description realize it's possibly an individual contributor role, which would be disappointing. Do you have a team or are you the doer? Product management if that matters.

Hi Google - I am requesting guidance! I am prepping for my interview specifically GCA and open ended questions. I struggle to tell if the outcome should be talking through your process/steps (maybe for a question like - how would you go about determining program complexity) vs a specific solution such as create x new product, for x market by x date based on my assumptions. Is the desired outcome something I can clarify with the interviewer?

I’m at a huge standstill in my career. Looking for any advice or tips ! I graduated Dec 2017 with a finance degree. I left my first job after 6 months after a new job offer and sadly the new job was not all gold so quit after a year in 2019 (harassment and toxic environment). I have been unemployed since. I had some interviews but no call backs. Don’t know if I should go back to school or what to even do at this point. Had my resume redone as well and interview coaching.

What happens if you don’t hit your billable hours? I am a first-year that had a very slow February and slow start to March. I’ve been reaching out to various teams for work but things seem slow now & I’m worried that I’m not going to hit my 1800 target.
Just for laughs! I was researching potty training before I jumped into my 6 AM call, and accidentally called Pamela, potty and then all fuzzy and stressed called puneet, prune! I immediately apologized and luckily work with these folks for ages so they know me in and out but yeah, this is mom brain! Pamela, a 4 kid warrior called me later to share that I should focus more on sleep training for now, potty training can wait 😝😝😝…. Never again am I researching anything early am before my work calls!
